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?

santa got sick.

when i was in second grade i co-authored a story entitled ‘santa got sick’.
the premise of the story was..santa got sick.

well move over santa because erin got sick.

thats right folks ive got it all.
cough: check.
sore throat: check.
achy body: check.
headache: check.
major congestion: check.

i am starting to feel much better than i have the past thirtysix hours or so though. yay for that.

onward!

here are most..erm..some of my eats since we last chitted and chatted.
imagine copious amounts of peanut butter and chocolate and frozen bananas for throat easing purposes [just the bananas were for the throat. the chocolate and peanut butter were for my soul.]

flatout wrap stuffed with romaine. spinach. peppers. carrots. chicken. balsamic. etc. extra carrots and peppers on the side with salsa. and apple chunks.

this is when i started to feel like death so comfort food was very much in order. baked sweet potato with chickpeas and bbq sauce. all atop some wilted spinach and cinnamon coated apples. divine.

and then the snacking began. popcorn. cereal. chocolate. etc. you know the drill.

wow wow wow. so good. chocolate covered pretzels and peanut butter get me EVERYTIME. picture this. times a million. because thats how many i ate. :]

simple banana oats with a fig and peanut butter.

img_0038-1
a ‘green’ smoothie. which was not green at all. too many blueberries. not enough spinach. also contained more frozen banana. soymilk. and chocolate protein powder. topped with a heap of kashi golean.

img_0039-1
class fuel. kashi h2h. almonds. dried berries. and of course a cutie.

all i wanted for dinner was soup but i have none. so i cooked up some carrots. asparagus. corn. peas. and tofu. and mixed it all up with lots of tomato sauce and spices. and pretended it was soup. alongside i had a sandwich thin for dipping.

i burnt my tongue on the damn ‘soup’ so i think some ice cream is my near future. out of necessity of course.

ETA: yep. we got some edys loaded butterfinger goin on up in here. drool.

also. somewhere in that mishmosh i did an hour on the arc trainer. ran fourandahalf miles. and did two twenty minute yoga sessions. woo. go me.

i only intended on doing the arctrainer for fortyfive minutes but i got sucked into the damn episode of without a trace. i had to know which twin killed her!

and the run that took place this morning should not have happened. because well..im sick. but it was SO nice outside today and i wont be able to run tomorrow or saturday due to my schedule. ergo i ran today. feeling like death. and into intense gusts of wind. but running always makes me feel better so i did what i had to do. haha.

sorry for such a spastic lame post but now i must depart.

i will leave you with this.

[i just noticed what a scrub i am. nice water spill in the background.]



little bird.

hey party people!

its march third.
you know what that means?!
two weeks until my birthday!
woo baby.
come on may third.
come on mimsosas with my mamacita.

hope your day went swimmingly.
mine was a pretty typical tuesday. tttttttt.

eats? okay okay. if you insist.

i have a nast picture from dinner last night.
the meal itself was splendid.
unfortunately the photography was quite lacking.

here we have a lovely pita smeared with some tomato sauce that i jazzed up with some balsamic and a mishmosh of various spices and such. topped with roasted veggies and some chickpeas for good measure. yum yum.
pita.

for a post dinner sweet treat i went with a little bowl of heaven.
we got popcorn. figfigs. quaker oatmeal squares. and some almonds. nom. i topped it all off with some salt and cinnamon. and a cozy mug o cocoa tied it all together. mmm. comfort.
cinnamonsalt.
cocoaa.
[sorry for the sideways picture. stupid wordpress.]

later on i managed to eat an apple and half a chocolate chip peanut clif bar i had lying around.
i didnt take a picture of the apple because im lazy.
i COULDNT take a picture of the clif bar because it was recalled and therefore does not really exist. ;]

this is where sleep came in. zzzzzzz.

i started the day off right with twentyminute morning flow from yogadownload.com. definitely the best way to begin my tuesday.

eventually i made myself fab cup of honey nut drizzle coffee. archer farm brand because its all about the target in these parts.
accompanying my coffee was oats. much like on sunday but with some fiber one added for good measure. and good bowel movements. haha. ew.
hello.
hello camera.

oaties.

digestiondigestiondigestion.

i bundled up for hopefully one of the last times and made my journey to the arc to pound out five miles in just under thirtyeightminutes. then i did some upperbody weight stuff ish because this girl doesnt fool around.

after a nice shower i made lunch.

toasted up sandwich thin with the last of my hummus :/ and some roasted vegetables from last night. on the side i had part of a big ole smushed up pear. and a chocolate banana soymilk protein shake of sorts.
yum.
protein.

apparently in college people have class. so i did the damn thing and this snicksnacks managed to tag along.
cutie.
sweet cutie. ;]

another bar letdown. ive seen quite a few people sample this bar byway of foodbuzz or free samples [how i obtained the bar] and the general consensus seems to be that its alright. but not worth actually paying for it. but free food is free food. right?

i am totally in love with my dinner picture. this salad was divine.

romaine and spinach topped with some green and yellow pepper. carrots. the rest of my lunch pear. and some quasi gliding calm tofu. half a sandwich thin with jimmyjam snuck onto my plate as well.
littlebird.
wait. something doesnt seem right here..

im sure more munching is on its way but for now i am quite content.

perhaps i should go work on my new media midterm.
perhaps not.

either which way. until we meet again!
