hello birds!

how are you on this lovely sunday morning?!

i found these random two breakfasts
on my camera from a few days ago?
IMG_0010
this one must be waaaay old because thats definitely dark chocolate dreams. which has been gone for a while now. im done off with another jar and a half since this breakfast. either which way. scrumptious.
IMG_0087
i can always manage to get pictures of breakfast. then its all downhill from there. maybe i should reformat my blog? ;] [p.s. loooove that blog. so quaint!]

anywhoooo. onto bigger and better things. like yesterday!

i decided to channel my inner lolita yesterday and have a ‘sloth day‘.
[disregard that she worked all evening. and i did quite the opposite.]

so yes yes. sloth day. home makes me so laaaazy.
[and i certainly dont mean sexy.]
but i absolutely love it. aint no shame in being a big ole blob from time to time.

i woke up to a simple breakfast of sorts.
IMG_0103IMG_0109
super bananical oats with peanut butter. and crooked coffee. hit the spot.

the oats were way hot and as i let them cool the peanut butter got super oozey.
IMG_0111
[speechless.]

i putzed around the house. chilled with the cathmeister. yada yada.

lunch was pretty lame. our produce is seriously lacking as of current.
IMG_0116
i usually opt for fresh romaine and spinach but all we had was some bagged stuff. it sufficed. topped with green bell pepper. pineapple and something or another salsa. and kashi fireroasted veggie crackers. [my fave flavor for sure.]
IMG_0117
with a side of crooked cottage cheese and more kashi love.

throughout the day i munched on various things. such as:
IMG_0118
this dish was overflowing when i got home yesterday. and the nibblage did not stop after this picture. man oh man do i love reeses.

im trying with all my might to unpack the stuff from my apartment but well.. yeah. anyways. i was looking through some boxes of stuff in my room [not apartment stuff. old room stuff.] and i found these gems:
IMG_0121
IMG_0123
i love my life.

our house is full of food. but theres nothing to eat. it drives me bonkers.

so dinner was a old favorite.
IMG_0135
a crooked sweet potato. chickpeas. bbq sauce. bananas peppers. and then a little package of apple slices i found in the fridge. thanks subway.

[p.s. sorry for all the crooked shots. come on wordpress. dont be lame.]

either way. dinner was delish.

a bit later i met up with my gal brittany and we went uptown to some of the bars. let me just say that i live in a town of sixthousand [pretty sure thats including the livestock]. surrounded by cornfields. and cattle. and tractors. the bars are.. well. this sure aint no college campus. but i do love me a good nascar jacket.

we chitted and chatted and caught up. i flirted around with my fellah mister daniels. it was a good time for sure. our gal elaina showed up a bit later. i hadnt seen these gals much since high school. elaina is now married and brittany has a wee baby and is essentially engaged. dont worry. im still eternally single and horribly immature. nice.

a few fellas tried their darndest to get me to cheat on my boy jack with their friend jose but i wasnt havent it. i knew my gal tammy would never have it.
[im such a hick. yeehaw.]

anyways. i came home and polished off the hot and spicy cheez its. and the easter candy. mmmm.
IMG_0137
there was obviously more chocolate and peanut butter action than shown here. but well. i was too busy eating to take pictures. oops.

then i passed out.

and now its sunday. sunday fun day. fun in the sun day. [?!]

what was the last thing you ate!?
ill tell you tomorrow chumps!



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?



moderation schmoderation.

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.

img_00123
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.

img_00182
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.

img_00192
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!

img_00261
img_00364
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.
img_00502
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.



BABIES!!!

hey guys. sorry ive been so aloof.

but i have good reason this time!
one of my dearest darlingest friends
since the wee age of five just had
babies. yes. plural. as in TWO. two
happy healthy beautiful boys. !!!

i just got back from normal. they are
sooooo little. i dont even like babies
but these two. oh my good golly.

anyways. my picture taking has been
sort of lacking and such. and i have
to get some schtuff done tonight so
ill just leave you with a gallery of a
little bit of what ive been eating these
days. nothing too legit. you may
notice that i restocked my edys
loaded butterfinger ice cream. YUM!

on the exercise front ive been takin
it pretty easy. nice three mile run
yesterday. a little jaunt on the good
ole arctrainer today. just keepin my
legs moving. nothing too strenuous.


i randomized the order. for some zing!

lots of easter candy pictures missing.
and lots of cereal and chips. peanut
butter. etc. im just not so good at
this whole food blogging bit. my bad.

also not pictured. tonights dinner at COSI! yum.
i was so stoked to discover there was one in normal since that is only an hour away from me. yayayayayay.

sorry to be so frantic. i miss you little pumas.

hello my little friends.

thanks so much for all your lovely comments
about my run. it was amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing.

and yesterday was fabulous as well. i ate so much.
the funny thing is that i didnt eat a lot when i was
celebrating the holiday and such. but between the
easter candy throughout the day and my mondo
attack of the cabinets once i got back to school
last night i should be able to go about six days
without eating again. should being the key word.

lets get back into the swing of things though eh?

so for breakfast this morning i had an eggie scramble that i shoved into a pita along with an apple drenched in cinnamon and peanutbutter. the pictures just werent that great though. stupid dreary rain. so here is the one picture i managed to snap on friday:
img_00031
!!! bananasoymilkieoats with fone. peanut butter. and CHOCOLATE CHUNKS. the heat from the oats melted the chunks and my lord. words cannot describe. ah! i want more. now.

after my not quite as amazing breakfast this morning i headed off to class and then to the arc to work up a bit of a sweat. nothing too intense. just wanted to get my legs amovin.

img_00251
i snacked on this little gem before i got my groove on.

after a drizzlie walk home i made a scrumptious lunch.

img_00312
this picture does not do my lunch justice. anyways. spinach. green peppers. orange peppers. and sundriedtomato hummus [made this weekend]. all shooved between a lovely sandwich thin. along for the ride..strawberries and carrots with more hummus. and hey hey. easter candyyyy. krackel and reeses for sure.
img_00333
whered that come from!?

so i got a package today from the lovely veronica and i am now starting to realize what an excess of bars i have! its because i hoard them as if once i eat them i will never be able to get another one? i dont even know. anyways. heres a look at my hoarding abilities:

img_00372
img_00363
img_00481
img_00452
img_00412
img_00431
img_00521
img_00441

somewhere in that smorgasboard is a box of pure bars [reviews to come!]. a box of honest foods bars and planks [reviews to come]. the rest of my probars. some random natures valley bars and envirokidz crispy rice bars that i obtained pre and post halfmarathon. a mishmosh of clifs. laras. pure proteins.gnu bars. and a few other randoms thrown in for good measure. what the heck yall. i need to stop BUYING bars/letting people GIVE them to me and start EATING them. :]

if it helps i just ate one of these:
img_0053
coated in chocolate.

i dont know if you can tell from todays pictures of not..but im
a bit hormonal. OH MY GOD I NEED MORE CHOCOLATE. NOW.

i have to run off and meet up with my group for some
atrocious research schtuff. i dont even wanna talk about it.

sorry this post has been lacking in zing.
ill blame the hormones.

whats your favorite bar?



nothings fine..im torn.

[everything is fine..i just love the nineties.]

anyways. i really am torn though.

i dont know if i want saturday morning to get here right now.
or to never ever come. oy ve. my tummy is all sorts of jumbled.

the funny thing is i dont know why im so nerrrrrvous. i KNOW
i can run thirteenpointonemiles. and i sincerely just want to
run a halfmarathon. time is of no importance. quite puzzling.

anyways. food pictures are sooo much better than my rambles.

img_00112
another splendid bowl of SOYMILK banana oats. topped with fone. zoes granola. pistachios. and more dried crans for good measure. and a cuppa joe. IM OUT OF COFFEE. which is sort of a good thing. because coffee before i run always gives me the poops [sorry] and i dont want to even be tempted to drink any on saturday morning. that bowl looks so tiny. i think its because that spoon is itty bitty so it throws off the proportions. moh well.

i always get my workout on after a bit of digestion on tuesday and thursday so it was weird to not today. but i obeyed my buddy hal.

besides..i had studying to do. [i slept and snack ALL DAY].

img_00122
here we have my dear friend mister deconstructedturkeypita. i bronzed a pita pita in the toaster oven with lots of chilipowder and cumin and smoked paprika. mostly for the colors. and then chopped up some carrots and peppers. some turkey for protein and such. all dipped in a bbq/hummus bowl of divine. and half a HUGE apple with cinnamon. and little chunk of a butterfinger that i discovered and munched on last night. mmm. what a lovely little lunching experience i had.

then it was go time. dumb exam. theres always summer school..right?

img_00161
i made it through classes without the need for a snack. but i was gettin sort of grumbly on my walk home so i munched on this guy so that i didnt absolutely obliterate my wee kitchen once i walked in the door. my plan quasi worked. who gnu?

img_0020
i like to mix it up. so for dinner i had a salad since i NEVER eat salads. romaine. spinach. and then a mix of veggies and shrimp all cooked up in lime juice. chili powder. and hot sauce. i topped the salad with salsa and my lovely traderjoeschips and called it delicious.

insert drab college stuff here. buzzkill.

and since everyone loves my late night munches!

img_00221
here we have the rest of my apple from lunch. some cheerios. more zoes granola. newmans own organics cinnamon sugar soy crisps. PEANUTBUTTER. and a hunka chocolate. [wait. theres no chocolate in this picture. well..there should be. it was a last minute add in and apparently this picture was taken prior. let your imagination run wild.]

obviously i went back for a bit more peanut butter. by the time i got to the chocolate the spoon had long been sucked dry and well..mister chocolate was horribly lonesome. im quite the matchmaker if i do say so myself.

and with that i must depart. toodles.

favorite onscreen matchup..go!

for sure.



five not four.

bonjour!

i dont speak french.

how are things my gruff billygoat friends?

so after i left you sunday i had the most DIVINE dessert.
but i didnt take a picture because it looked so nasty. haha.

anyways. i mashed up a frozen banana. some soymilk. the
other half of my erinbaker breakfast cookie. and LOTS of
peanutbutter. it was totally unreal. i ate lots of other stuff too.

zzzzzz.

yesterday morning i woke up and had to rush off to take care of some businessssss so i grabbed breakfast and off i went.

img_0002
mmm. oatmeal raisin cookies for breakfast? yes please.

between a couple of classes i jolted off to the arc to get my four mile run in [tapering and such]. unfortunately i was pressed for time so i had to sprint the four miles [subthirtyminutes] and so i think i defeated the purpose of tapering?

yeah. im that sweaty girl in class. gross.

at least i had time to shower before work?

img_0006
packed lunch for sure. i feel like this picture makes my salad look very small and my fruit look very big. either way it was all very good.

and well..i work at a cupcake bar. and we just started our new spring flavors yesterday. aka there was a lot of nibbling going on. the things i do for my customers right?

img_00121
i may have also made myself a vanilla latte for my trek home. yum.
please note that i am wearing gloves. also note that i ran in shorts and a tank top on saturday.

dinner was a classic. but first..
img_00181
i munched on a ton of grapes. i shouldnt buy grapes because i could easily eat the whole bag in like three opens of the refrigerator..if that makes any sense. [i wish i could invite you all into my head. things make so much more sense in there(here?).]

img_0019
say it yesterdaywasyourbirthdaygirl! plus a mishmosh of veggies and black bean. and BBQ SAUCE.

i have a big ass exam on thursday so i tried to pretend to study for a bit but uh..

img_0026
chocolate [thats not a whole bar..] kettle corn. zoes granola. LOTS of salt and cinnamon. munchcrunchlove.
img_0031
interpret this as you will. [but lets just say im now down to four jars of peanut/nutbutter..or so i thought (foreshadowing much?).]

i probably ate more too. because its me.

zzzzzzzz.

i added soymilk to my oats for the first time ever this morning.
holy bagoly majoly. so good.
img_00331
i tried to leave a wee gap in the toppings [which were fone. dried cranberries. and recalled nut of sorts.] so you could see how creamy the banana soymilk combo made them. no dice.

eventually i headed off to do some light crosstraining. just thirty on the arctrainer. i took it supah easy and just enjoyed my ‘what not to wear’. oh clinton kelly..you will be mine. oh yes. you will be mine. and by mine i just mean well shop together and talk smack about other people. swoon.

working out vigorously [!?] requires much refueling.
img_0036
a salad of sorts. bbqsauce makes my world go round. so do: carrots. peppers. kashi lovebites. turkey. and colorful bowls of fruit..since my salad was sort of dichromatic. [not a word?]

AND THEN I CHECKED THE MAIL!

[at this point im speechless..ill let the pictures do the talking.]

img_0034
img_0041
img_00461
chocolate times two. peanutbutter times at least six.

words cannot describe my friends. ah. and the jar count is back up to five! [well..four and a half at this point. oops. MUST RATION!]

heather. you are too good to me. !!!

the only thing that tore me away from that jar was class. bummer.

img_00501
another win for team gnu. better than the banana id say but still no peanut butter.

my stomach has been on and off again wonky for the past couple of days so dinner is a little..awkward? i dont know man. it was just what sounded good. and i enjoyed it so that really all that matters.

img_00551
these chips are from trader joes and are my loooove. in the past couple of nights ive eaten over half the bag. [MUST RATION.] i definitely went back for more chips and cottage. nom.

now i for real am going to study. seriously guys. really.

i gotta know..crunchy or creamy?
