seriously. its overrated.

so for my first late night snickysnack last night i decided to coordinate with my peanut butter.

img_00021
cheerios. BANANAS. CHOCOLATE. soymilk. pbloco chocolatelybananapeanutbutter goodness! delicious. as i suspected it would be.

a bit later i was wanting some more munchcrunch action.

apples and hummus.

then i just went at the jar of peanut butter. at one point i stopped long enough to slather some on a sandwich thin with banana slices and make a legit snack out of it. but then i just went back to the spoon.

by the time my head hit the pillow last night a third of the jar was gone.

dayum. im very upset about this. but only because its not going to last long. boo.

anyways.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

i woke up this morning and thought it best to avoid the PEANUT butter.

aka GOOD MORNING BARNEY BUTTER. this was one of the free samples i got in the mail. it was pretty good. but not like drop your pants good. if it were available around here [its not] and were comparable to wherever nut butter i was fixin to buy [doubt it. homegirls on a budget.] id grab a jar. but i dont think id ever shell out the extra dollahs for shipping. not my style. anyways. soymilknaner oats. fone. cranberries. delicious as always.

then it was off for a funfilled morning of self-inflicted pain. i mean. class.

i made it home with enough time to pack up some grub and out the door i went. to the cupcake factory!

i didnt eat the pure protein bar. i did make myself an iced latte or two. and obviously there were nibbles. i mean come on. i work around cupcakes. chocolate. and gelato. thatd be tough even for someone with some level of restraint.

after work i was planning on going for a run but then my friend who just returned from NEW ZEALAND offered up dinner with her fam. they were going to biaggis which in my humble [im always right.] opinion is not that great. but who am i to turn down free food?

i had a snack first because i got off at six and was gettin hungry and dinner wasnt until sevenfifteen.

there must be some food that i ate that isnt orange..right? there might have been crackers too? okay. there definitely were.

anyways. no pictures from dinner. but i managed to eat a good portion of the big house salad for the table. drenched in dressing. not so fun. but whats a gal to do? for my entree of sorts i ordered the mediterranean pizza. it was a biggin. and i was good only ate half of it. [moderation!] but as soon as i got home i went into the kitchen to put it in the fridge and ended up polishing off the other half. [its overrated anyways.]

so thats where i be now. unrunned. overeatened. supah tired. cest la vie.

no big plans for the rest of the evening. maybe trying to figure out how im going to get out of these pants. perhaps ive been overcompensating for my running these past few weeks. oops. i guess that means ill just have to go shopping for new jeans. ;]

anyways. if anyone wants to come over and play scrabble that sounds pretty alright with me right about now. byopb. [though any nut butter will do.]

whats your favorite board game?

scrabble. for sure. though chutes and ladders is pretty legit too.

kiss me..i dont smoke.

dude. why do all the attractive fellas gotta be tarlungs?
for reals. i saw several hecka fine [keep in mind..hormones]
gentlemen on my jaunt to class this afternoon and every
last one of the boneables was smoooking. gross gross gross.

anyways.

ANOCHE [thats last night my amigos]:

megamunchfest last night. i managed to snap a couple pics but man oh man was much more consumed.

img_00081
the lovely dani at foodshouldtastegood was nice enough to send me some chippies to try out for the blog. these olive chips werent my favorite. but i dont like olives. so ya know. they were still pretty alright all things considered. and they definitely satisfied my salt craving. [for a bit. some honeychipotlechip with cottagecheese action occurred later on in the evening.]

now for the good stuff:
img_00062
mmm. so good. edys loaded butterfinger. cheerios. peanut butter. and a chocolate vitatop. need i say more?

this was my first experience with vitatops. i mean. it was good. but like. not OH MY GOD AMAZING. i had higher expectations. dont get me wrong the box will not last long but i dont quite see what all the fuss is about.

also. i polished off the rest of this beaut:

thanks again heather! youre a total gem.

i stayed up way too late last night piddling/munching my life away.
and stealing from my roommates bag of candy and such. oops.

all i can say is thank god i love to run.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

i could NOT get out of bed this morning. which is totally fine since i dont have class until three on tuesday/thursdays. and i lack ambition.

then i started pondering breakfast and ZING what bed?

brace yourself. breakfast was a numbah one stunnah:
img_00201
sweet wheat bagel. half with cottage cheese and some heated up frozen berries. the other half had a NEW peanut butter!!! and a few orange slices. totally hit the spot.

check out my new pal:
img_00131
thanks to lovelies at pbloco this little buddy was the star of breakfast. mmmm. super sweet and artificial but so damn good. peanut butter. chocolate. bananas. how can you go wrong!?

then i crawled back into bed. but the stupid sun was shining all up in my business and making me feel guilty. ‘fiiiiiiiiiiiiiine sun. i will come suck you all up.’ aka i went for a splendid six mile run. it was great. i love being warm.

img_00222
i should totally join in on lengs salad challenge. but im sure the second i commit ill run out of romaine. and i certainly cannot ahve that. plus im totally commitmentphobic. anyways. romaine. turkey. carrots. peppers. bbq/hummus/ricewinevinegar dressing of sorts. fone for CRUNCH. and apple wedges with cinnamon. i got mad love for cool crisp foods.

i was fixin to make some iced coffee to take to class. and i wanted some post lunch sweetness. aka i made my own little version of cocoa coffee. basically i just iced mine. and added a few glugs of soy milk since i dont do creamers and such. it was amazing. that bender knows whats up.

img_00374
i brought along this larabar as well. PECAN PIE. i really liked it. which surprised me since pecans are probably my least favorite nut of sorts. and i dont like pie. bravo larabar. you done good. [thanks to my little lolita for sending me this little guy since i never would have opted to buy it for myself!]

class was pretty alright. except that it was sixty and sunny out. and the quad was covered with people laying around and playing frisbee and enjoying themselves. grrr. at least its supposed to be nice all day tomorrow. wait. i have class. class. class. and then straight to work. BUMMER.

i had some broccoli slaw in the fridge and i hadnt a clue what i wanted to do with it. but then i did have a clue! and then i had dinner.

img_00421
i chopped up some orange pepper [my favorite!] and dug in the freezer for some corn and stirfried it all up with a few big handfuls of slaw and some shrimpalimp. the sauce/marinade/stirfrying liquid was a mishmosh: ricewinevinegar. teriyakisauce. honey. red pepper flakes. ginger powder. garlic powder. sesame oil. etc etc. super delicious. i had some kashi crackers on the side. im not sure why. it seemed like a good idea at the time. i have no regrets. also. the rest of my orange from breakfast. the little chinese restaurant back home always had orange slices along with the fortune cookies at the end and so i wanted to channel the goodness that is golden garden. [i did NOT eat that purple barrette. the orange hue was just too dominate and i was trying to make the bits of cabbage pop. awk since you cannot see a single piece of the cabbage action.]

i considered eating this with some chopsticks that i had lying around but i totally lack coordination [hello. why do you think im a runner?] and it would have taken longer than the three minutes in which i inhaled this delight. forker for life.

im already pondering dessert. mmm. decisions decisions.

whats your favorite nut?

does peanut butter count as a nut? ;]

i really like cashews. and almonds. and pistachios. and hazelnuts. [okay. so i like them all. but walnuts and pecans are on the lower end of the spectrum.]

and no preaching about how walnut and such arent really nuts because i say they are and thats whats up. kapeesh?
