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.
did you miss me?

oh hey. whats up yall?
i have an exam tomorrow. and well. uh. its going to be interesting.
speaking of delicious late night snacks on tuesday!
and then i had the other half of the apple. eaten like this:
my peanut butter rationing plan was out the window before i could even open the jar. oops.
and since i gave up on rationing i munched on more traderjoes spicyflaxtortillachips. [and some chocolate.]
ive decided i just need to take a roadtrip to a destination with a trader joes. anyone jonesin for a visitor? ;]
i woke up this morning and knew breakfast had to be quick so i had a cottage cheese bowl. it had been so long!
classes today drug on to no end. buzzkill.
once i finally made it back to my apartment i decided to lace up for my last run before my half on saturday [FREAKOUT].
i obviously needed some serious fuel for my two miler so i had the last half of this baby.
it was so nice out and i wanted to keep running but i was a good little lamb and only ran the two and at a comfortable easy pace. go me.
i stretched out. showered. slothed. and then whipped up this great little diddie of a lunch.
i mixed up some tuna with the bbqsauce/hummus combo and some carrot nibs and pepper bits and shoved the whole smosh into a pepperbutt. with a bit of salad action [carrots. peps. kashi lovebites. more bbq/hummus. etc etc]. i had those grapes times a bunch. also shown: insideoutdirtyyellowsweater backdrop. mmmm. classy.
at this point i set out to do some serious studying..
and countless other nibbles.
is it to late to change my major to eating..with a concentration in peanut butter?
i sort of. quasi. maybe got a little bit accomplished but then i realized i was too famished to do anything else. no really. i hadnt eaten in like thirtysevenminutes.
for dinner i whipped up a scramble with corn. peppers. carrots. spinach. salsa. and hot sauce. oh. and eggies. postphoto i smushed half of the mixture into a pita. oh the side i had the last of my random plethora of fruit and some strawberries.
my fruit stash is quite low. a couple more stawberries. a few apples. and some bananas [ a few frozen. a few supah ripe..aka perfect]. tragedy.
i just finished up a superb late night snack!
SNACKBOWL! love. this little gem has some cheerios [ i want to be her.] newmans own organic cinnamon sugar soy crisps. some zoes cranberries currants granola. pistachios. more dried cranberries. and chocolate chunks.
lotsa flavor going on here. all so so good. as far the granola goes. well. its fabulous. but i think i like the cinnamon raisin a tid better. but id take either any day of the week.
the munchfest continues on. but the camera has retired for the night. use your imagination eh?
im off to study. and by study i mean go to bed. and by go to bed i mean stay up to an ungodly hour doing who knows what with lord knows who.
and my question tonight is for all yall runners out there. its gettin to be race time..
got any pre/during/postrace tips for a halfmarathon newb?
and for those nonrunners:
would you rather eat your right arm or your left leg?
the way today has been going id say id probably end up eating both. oy.
also..this girl that im totally NUTS about is having a giveaway. haha.

i hadnt burnt my thumb. ow.
anyways. hello. top o the mornin. erm..evening?
hope everyone had/is having/will continue to have a swell saintpatrickday!
im always behind.
lets take a quick journey back to yesterday morn.
babies for breakfast. nom!
aka cottage cheese and blues and fone. [iber takes too long to type?]
pear for some serious snackage on my walk back to my apartment from class. i was going to eat it in class but i refrained from munchcrunching the poor chap next to mes ear off.
i picked up a shift for a girlie at work so i packed up this romaine/spinach salad with chicken and black beans salsa zukes summer squash carrots peppers etc.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaand some pretzels and a cutie for good measure.
im all out of those pretzels now and am sad. they were quite convenient and on sale for super cheap at meijer a while back [i never would have bought them otherwise].
work was pretty alright. i started to snap a few pictures of the joint so get ready for a cupcaketastic post in the near future.
we had a sign out about ordering our chocolate stout cupcakes for the festivities today and a guy who works at a restaurant across the street came in to talk to me about them. apparently they make a stout cake over in those parts. any which way. he thought it was the bees knees that we had similar cupcakes and so a few hours later he brought me back a big ole honkin piece of his cake for me to try. im not huge into cake. id much rather have a cookie or ice cream or chocolate. but who am i to turn down a gift? i was trying to get a picture but a customer came in. heres the box he brought it over in though. cute:
after i got home from work i wasnt starved but thought i should eat something dinneresque.
turkey. bbq sauce. veggies. all on a sandwich thin. with grapes. i had sooo many more than that. and some leftover carrot and pepper pieces.
get ready for some monotony in the next few days as i use up what i got here in the apartment before SPRING BREAK. WOO.
late night snackies. h2h. probar crumbles. lindt seventypercentdark. peanutbutter!!! apples slices. etc. [i thought this probar was loads better than the first flavor i tried. check it out yall. haha. ‘AMAZING GRASS.’ i suppose ‘SAMBAZON’ is pretty fun as well.]
and lord knows i went back for way more peanut butter. had to make a dent in the new jar. you know how it is.
i ended the evening with some nice detox yoga. it was a pretty lowkey day on the exercise front [as my mondays always are].
this morning i woke up and opted for some cereal. which is weird. because i never actually eat cereal when its to be expected. ill blame the hormones.
heaven. otherwise known as kashi h2h. fone. frozen banana. dried berries [last of the bag. tragic.] and chopped almonds. oh. any soymilk. yum.
then i went for a fabulous sixmiler. it took me fiftytwominutes ish based on the clock when i left and returned but i had to jog in place for FIVE full red lights. obnoxious for sure.
and um. hello gorgeous weather. it was highsixties/lowseventies all day long. with a nice cool breeze. i was so happy. yay yay yay.
in not so happy news. i managed to bleed all up in my shoe. the same thing happened in the other shoe a few weeks back. classy. [at least now theyre balanced?]
bleeding makes me hungry. or maybe running six miles does. or maybe breathing does. yeah. im gonna go with that one.
lunch was three eggies scrambled up with black beans. random veggies. turkey. and salsa. garnished with my roommates hot sauce. super good. and the rest of last nights apple cinnamized.
a cutie. my fav clif. an iced coffee/latte of sorts. and water. all packed up for class. i didnt end up eating the clif though. dont worry. its time will come. mwahahaha. ?
dinner was sooo good. i had a butternut squash that needed to get eatin before heading home for break so i roasted the whole thing up. then i mixed up some chickpeas. pepper. corn. and carrot. with some rice wine vinegar and bbq sauce and let the flavors all meld together. after the squash was ready to i plopped my mixture into the seedcubbiehole and popped it back into my toven [oaster takes too long to type?] and broiled it for a few minutes. SO GOOD. too bad i totally burnt my thumb off through the pot holder. i mean towel. that i was using to get it out of the toven. totally worth it though. i had some grapies to go along. picture that wee dish times thirtyseven. give or take.
now im just sort of hangin out. realizing that i ramblepost. sorry yall.
i think im going to do some yoga now.
i think youre going to go check out the jenns stellar giveaway.
that is all.
wait. no its not.
as much as i appreciate when everyone posts teabag/dovechocolate wrapper/etc wisdom i prefer to get mine elsewhere.
talk about a great product. leakage protection and motivation all rolled into one.
hahaha. sorry im so crude.
now for real. that is all.

check out what i received in the mail the other day!! :]
my great swag from the heather/marks giveaway from way back when.
thanks again you two!
[yeah. i alphabetized them for the picture. oy. i need a hobby.]
since i know youre all curious [/horribly concerned] yes..im still sick. its a total buzzkill.
i started my morning off with a great twentyminute power vinyasa flow [number four] from yogadownload. perfect.
tuesday morning means no class til three so PLENTY of time to make my favorite oaties. delicious as always.
after piddling around for a bit and then polishing off my fig stash i got my workout on in hopes of sweating this crud out of me. it was a pretty chill workout since i didnt want to die. success!
lunch was sort of weird. i guess you could call it a lettuce wrap? im seriously low of food these days so my carb options were slim to none so i threw some hummus. turkey. carrots. and pepper on a big ole romaine leaf. on the side i had half an apple with hummus and one of my favorite combos: kashi fireroastedvegetable crackers with cottage cheese. i love salty crunchy things with cottage cheese. bbq chips and/or tortilla chips are definitely the bestttt.
i ended up rolling up the lettucething and smoking it it. wait. no.
class snacks included a cutie and half of arts original blend it seems. i wasnt sure what to expect. i mean there are papayas and such on the wrapper but i hadnt really read the ingredients. it was pretty interesting. i think i need to have the other half to fully decide on it. i cant wait to try the rest of the flavors! oh. and this was my first experience with carob chips. as far as i can tell theyre good but its hard to say because this bar had LOTS of flavors going on. [fyi i just brought the part in the baggie but i thought the wrapper was cute and i was just feelin the orange vibe.]
class. class. group meeting at the library.
and then just to solidify the fact that im NEVER going to get better i got poured on for a good fifteen minutes on my walk home tonight. [way to forget your umbrella. nincompoop.] now im smelly and damp. herein lies the inspiration for this posts title.
dinner was super scrumptious. flatout bbq chicken pizza with carrots and peppers and pineapple and such. on spinach. yum. and of course i could not resist more of my stolen fruit. its all gone except a couple of blackberries that ive been saving. so sad. but i certainly enjoyed it while it lasted.
well. nature calls. and by nature i mean college.
wet dog. over and out.
