yum. run. !!!


hi hi hi!

im back yall. woo hoo.

to be honest ive had a computer since monday
[ended up having to just buy a new one. so having
to wait the two weeks to see if my fatherman could
fix it was sort of for naught. cest la vie am i right?]
..but yeah. anyways. i just wasnt ready to get back
into the whole blogging thing. im still sort of not.
as in i havent been taking pictures of my eats. but
truuuuuuust me. ive been eating. in excess. yum!

obviously not a complete representation of what
i have been eating for the past two and a half or
so weeks but here are a few photos from when i
first stopped blogging and didnt know how long
my hiatus would be. lots and lots more peanut
butter. frozen yogurt. ice cream. cookies. etc etc.
also. nutritional things. in moderation of course. ;]

anyways. tonight and tomorrow are going to worktastical.
plan on regularly scheduled blogging to resume sunday. ish.

kisses!

did you miss me?

yep.

hello puppies.

you guys are superb. all of your comments on my
last post were supah sweet and i was lovin them.
[except heathers: ‘College is hard, but real life is worse. :D’
gee thanks heather. that makes me feel loads better.
perhaps she was just hangry? haha. just kidding. kisses!]

so since friday ive eaten A TON but my pictures are all
sort of blah or nonexistent so were just going to pff that.
just imagine lots of good healthy eating all day long. and
then once the night arrives LOTS of cereal. peanutbutter.
chocolate. cottagecheese with spicyflaxchips. etc etc etc.

you havent missed too much excitement in my not eats either.
worked for a long arse time friday. ran all day saturday. worked
for another long arse time saturday night. grumble grumble.

the silver lining to all that work though. i just HAD to sample
the new truffles and caramels and sparkling wines we got..
you know. just in case someone was curious about any of them.
and the gelatos arent new. but i had to remind myself of how
scrumptious they were since id been away for break and such.

yesterday i ran thirteen miles. BALLIN. my hip got a bit tight
around mile eleven which sort of freaked me out. moh well.
hopefully i can manage to tack on that last point one miles
next weekend. i dont know though. cross your fingers eh? ;]

where are all the pictures?!

okay. heres ONE picture from yesterday. just because
it turned out sort of cute. and was horribly delicious.

img_00581
salad. nothing new. blackbeans. chicken. peppers. carrots. salsa/hummus mix. kashi lovebites. strawberries/kiwi. yada yada.

NOW ONWARD TO SUNDAY.

i woke up and slothed around in bed for an excessive amount of
time because its sunday and pretty much required in these parts.

eventually i realized eating is required as well so i had this gem:
img_0082
i polished off the corn bran. seventeen servings. hahaha. more like five. also in the pool..soymilk. protein powder. frozen banana chunks.

the colors in the bowl were sort of bland so i dove into my dirty laundry for that shirt for a pop of color. the things i do for you guys.

then i continued to sloth in bed for a long ass time. totally fine.

doing absolutely nothing is hard work so i had to refuel.

img_0088
as you can see the novelty of the monster plate has worn off.

i whipped up a wrap with spinach and a mixture of carrots. corn. broccoli. black beans. salsa. etc. the bit that wouldnt fit in got its own cute little bowl. alongside i had some delicious fruit from earlier in the week. much more colorful than breakfast for sure.

img_0096
dessert!

more bed action. hollah.

i should add that all of this time spent in bed was sort of productive. i had lots of school work to do. it only took me like eight hours to do about fortytwo minutes worth of work. thats pretty legit for this gal.

at this point my fridge was pretty barren so.. GROCERIES. yesssss.

before i left i ate a banana. no picture because my camera battery was charging.
i pretty much looked like this:

at the grocery store i also managed to munch on half the bag of grapes while perusing. i totally owe meijer like threebucks. oops.

meijer didnt have much by way of sweet potatoes so i zipped across the street to walmart afterwards to pick up a couple. walmart randomly has a subway in it? so on the way out the door the smell of stinky feet wafted towards me and i was hooked. damn you subway.

img_0107
ovenroastedchickenbreast with lots of veggies. mmm. banana peppers. and i dont know whats in that cup but its definitely not diet coke. i only put wholesome healthy good for me things in my hotbod.

now im back in bed because i havent spent enough time here today.
i really need to ‘study’ but im crazyintelligent and so it is unnecessary.

hope everyone had a stupendous weekend void of any excessivelylongshifts at cupcakefactories and the likes.

hold the phone. i havent had any peanut butter today.
this must be remedied..and with that i must depart!

woof woof.

do you have any pets?

i am the proud owner of three really playful plants from meijer.



breathe in..breathe out.

thats what i have to keep telling myself.

dude. college is hard.
and minimum wage sucks.
and im getting sick.

but you know what isnthard/doesntsuck/isntsick? well..who.

HEATHER!

i was totally having the crummiest of days today and that
little gem of blogger totally made my day. thanks heather.

anyways. things are gettin all wackedup on this end
so my posting/commenting/etc may be even more
sporatic than it normally is so bear with meeee please.
grrr. grrr. im a bear. oh man. i need sleep. baaaaadly.

hey. this is a food blog. not national geographic.
no more bears. unless i start eating bear meat.
which i promise wont happen. ever. though oddly
enough ive had the opportunity. totally awk right?

yesterday morning i had a lovely six mile or so run.
i got all nice and sweaty. and red and puffy. sexy no?

then i came home and ate. i mean showered. [nah man. i ate.]

img_0046
just a snackish plate of sorts. i ate double the amount of cottage cheese and crackers for sure though. i think i eat half my meals before they even make it to the plate. whoops. [and yeah. that monster is totally tryin to eat my cottage cheese. i showed him what was up though. no worries.]

img_0050
lunch dessert! strawberries. chocolate. peanut butter. could it get any better?! [well..chocolate covered pretzels would have been nice but..]

i packed up this little gem and headed out to my classes.
img_0055
this was a GNU flavor for me and good grief was it swell. i think i preferred the peanut butter [shocking i know] but this one was super divine. i think maybe a peanutbutterbananawalnut fusion is in order. and hey. i still gotta try the chocolate one. hmmmm. i like where this is headed.

so i had made a point to check the ten DAY forecast in the morning..but failed to check the ten HOUR forecast. aka i had a nice walk home in the rain. in leather flipflops. sans umbrella. oy.

dinner was so good though that i totally didnt care.
img_0063
i baked up a sweetpotato and mashed it all up with some black beans and bbqsauce and wrapped it all up with some spinach in a flatout wrap. sooo good. i broiled the whole thing to help keep the wrap together. when i was done i seriously contemplated making another. i also tried kale chips for the first time. they were so awkward and made me uncomfortable while i was eating them. but i definitely loved them. [!?] and yay for delicious fruit.

then i started to get a little stressed out. and when this galfriday
gets stressed out she EATS. so i did.
img_00671
this was so good. my first time trying the erin baker breakfast cookies. definitely not my last. the ingredients are totally legit but the cookie taste did not reflect that. seriously. go try these. [that notebook is just for you munchhead.]

at this point i started going at the jar of peanut butter to comfort my sorry self. and then i thought this might work out better than just straight up spoonfuls:
img_0072
comforting and delicious.

but i still ended up with more skippylove.
and some more kashis with cottage cheese.
and a piece or two of chocolate.

im stressed out okay. dont judge.

anyways. zzzzzzzz. but not really.
i did not sleep well last night. bummer.

at least breakfast was good this morning.
img_0076
corn bran. frozen banana chunks and berries. soymilk. and of course my clumpy chocolate protein powder was added post picture.

i was running late this morning. per usual. so i just grabbed half a clif bar i had lying around to eat between classes. oatmeal raisin walnut. aka best flavor ever.

my head is all congested and nast right now [definitely self-induced. thanks again stress.] so im takin the day off on the exercise front. sometimes its just what you need. ya know?

im gonna go whip up some lunch and then shower and get ready for work. grumble grumble. think of me while youre all off enjoying your friday night. i think im the only person that more often than not does not look forward to friday. come on sunday.

whats your favorite day of the week?!

im a total sunday girl. as a general rule i am not allowed to do anything i do not want to on sundays. and dude. football. :]

breeeeeeeeeathe. breeeeeeeeeeeathe. breeeeeeeeeeathe.

yeah yeah yeah.

im probably one of the few bloggettes that is sad that it is friday.
grumblegrumble. boo college.

but enough about ME. how are YOU!?

okay. back to me.

last niiiiiiight:
img_00064
the last of the fudge tracks [twelveservings my ass]. mashup nan. pretzels. cerealll.
img_00075
times thirtysixZILLIONandthree. sorry the picture is so dark but im tryin to save the world yo.

zzzzzzz.

this morning i woke up and it was sunny and cheery!
haha. GOTCHA. suckahs.

but at least breakfast was good.

img_00213
the usual premix photo. hey wait..why is that dish of yogurt an awkward/disgusting color. PEANUTBUTTER. mmm.
img_0024
so good. so good.

it was cold this morn. and i hate cold. and more so i hate running in the cold. mostly because i like to breathe. and when i combine cold and running not so much. so i managed to not breathe for a good three miles/twentyfour minutes [im callin up the folks at guinness..that has GOT to be a record of some kind]. then while the heart was still a pumpin and the snot was still a flowin i got my shred on.

as of late there seems to be a game of inspiration tag going on in the blogosphere. eh! eh! eh! !? so i thought i would play along.

i like this game because basically my lunch was the same thing ive been eating all week..but i get to blame it on someone else. ;]

okay. it wasnt the same thing ive been eating all week because it was SO MUCH BETTER. this lunch totally hit the spot [no..not THAT spot. pervert.]

so im nearly twentyone..but i look twelve. ergo i can still play with my food. kapeesh?
img_00294
i had no intention of incorporating blueberries into my lunch but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.

img_00331
img_0039
!!!

so heres what went down. i shoved. err. delicately positioned a flatout wrap into an oven safe bowl and stowed her away in the toaster oven whilest i prepared the innards.

you cannot see it so much but there is a layer of sauteed spinach topped with all those above veggies: peppers. onions. zucchini. mushrooms. carrots. etc. these were also sauteed with some FAJITA spices. mmmm.

and of course the blackbeandip/salsa combo had to rear its ugly head. and by ugly i obviously mean delicious.

enjoyed with a cara cara orange and of course those gosh darn blueberries.

thanks sarah. andrea. and brittany. i am eternally grateful to all of you. at least until snack time.

and i may or may not have just ran to the kitchen and hit up the peanut butter jar just a tick ago when i was typing out breakfast. but whos to say for sure?

cath is gonna be home from work in a bit and if i dont clean up the explosion i left in the kitchen it may be the end of me and we simply cannot have that now can we?

BUT before i go. check out this post by jbend! so fun.

and hurry along if you havent hit up my giveaway..im picking a winner MANANANANANANANA [tomorrow for my not so cultured friends.]

what the last reeeeeeally good book you read!? [twilight does not count.]

i havent read a book for pleasure in EONS. but this one is always a crowd pleaser.
