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?

happy healthy beautiful boys. !!!

ill just leave you with a gallery of a
little bit of what ive been eating these
days. nothing too legit. you may

it pretty easy. nice three mile run

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_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?



sunny sunday!

..only its wednesday? [at least i think its wednesday?]

anyways. in true erinbee style ive gotten a bit behind on my posting havent i. mah bad. i am here now and that is all that matters. right?

backbackback it up to monday noche.

img_0010
this salad was saladtastic. the usual suspects of romaine. spinach. carrots. peppers. etc were present as well as frozen corn and broccoli. [unfrozed. duh.] and a crumbled up morningstar southwestern veggie cake i found hiding the in the back of the freezer. and of course i brought back a jar of my FAVORITE SALSA EVERRR from home so i had lots of that as well. and some stolen franks hot sauce. thanks roommate. hah. on the side i had banana chunks. kiwi niblets. and a huuuumungo strawberry.

SOME of my late night munches:

img_0018
looks to me like a chopped up apple with my new ZOES GRANOLA. oh my goodness. this stuff is so great. the lovely zoe-ites [aka tori] sent me a granola sampler pack to try. this is the cinnamon raisin. but really they should just call it ‘heckatastyyall’.

img_0021
mmm. peanut butter. figgers. newmans own chocolate. i had at least double everything shown here. maaaaybe a bit more chocolate and peanut butter..but its been a while so i cannot be certain. ya dig?

zzzzzzz.

the day of twos.

img_0027
it had been far too long since banana oats had graced my mouthicle. divine. and with that i finished off another jar of peanut butter. [no worries. i have like five more jars. stocked up for sure when it was on sale at meijer. four for fivedollars much?]

it was all drab and dreary outside so i did some yoga in hopes that the rain would stop. no such luck. so i had a snack instead.

img_0079
blurfest. and i had a lot more of those newmans own organic dried cranberries. they were supah sweet and i could not stop.

i eventually made it to the arc since i found my icard. holla.
i did some easypeasy arctrainering because i wasnt so much lookin for an intense workout as i just needed to get out of my dreary apartment. i also did weights because im a bodybuilder.

i got workout number two in on my walk home in the rain. this poor old man was havin some wheelchair issues so i wheeled him home. hardest. thing. ever. [and i know hard..] he insisted the brakes were not on but im callin his bluff. at least now i am doubly swoll.

img_0042
lunch was another salad. i like em apparently. spinach. romaine. carrots. peppers. salsa!!. chicken slices. and such. with a wee bowl of kiwis and strawberries. and some newmans own organics white cheddar soy crisps. after the picture i finished off the bag. [thank goodness the are only threeandahalf servings per bag. oh. and that theyre air.] still super delish though. i love flavored crunchy air. and a serving actually has somethin like eight grams of protein. if you say so nell.

img_0045
and some chocolate popped into my mouth on the way out the door to classville. mmm.

today has been brought to you by the letter: newmans own organics?

i packed up this little diddie for a snack:
img_0049
as you may recall back in the days of my creepybabyprime i tried the orangecranberry gnu bar and was less than pleased. however..i GNU [bahaha.] that the other flavors were more up my alley and so my dear friends at gnu hooked me up with the other four flavors to try. this peanut butter bar did not disappoint. go gnu!

oh mannnn. its like the neverendstory up in here. [!!! who wants to come over for a movie night!?]

i somehow made it through my classes without inflicting pain on myself or anyone around me. progress.

img_0058
the most important part of this dinner for me was making sure that everyone could see my new plate from target. with that being said i had double that amount of cara cara orange chunks. looooots more pretzels and hummus. and i added more of my tunahummuspretzelbbqsauce mosh to the sandwich thin.

ah! monster! ah!

i was super snacky last night. [..as opposed to everyother night.]

img_0067
another delicious mosh of cinnamon raisin zoes granola. apple chunks. soymilk. and cinnamon. its the bombdiggity.

img_0084
how adorable are these!? i found them at the walmart back home awhile back and sweet talked them into the basket. thanks cath. :]

img_0073
somehow throughout the night i ingested FIVE candycane frangos..but didnt manage to get a picture of any of them. i got skills.

there was more but ill spare you. i was really proud of myself for not going at a new jar of peanut butter until i realized that by not having a spoonful or two i ended up munching on much more throughout the night. oops?

zzzzzzzz.

oh hey. its today now.

img_0087
another amazing bowl of cornbran. soymilk. chocolateprotein powder. and banana chunks. oh wait. frozen mixed berries decided they wanted to join the early morning rushfest.

then i did the college thing.

END PICTURES.

for lunch i met up with a bunch of the people that i studied abroad in rome with. also present was my main squeeze fabio parsecoli. he was our instructor while in rome. hes also written a book or two or so and teaches at nyu and in barcelona. and he was a writer for gambero rosso but apparently its just got bought out and he wasnt happy with where things were headed so he jumped ship. yada yada. what im trying to say is hes a jack of all trades. and who doesnt love an italian man? it was nice to chat with him and all my little romepals.

okay. i lied. heres another picture.

img_0248
me and the fab in italy. [man. im such a cheeser.]

anyways. what im trying to say is that lunch was provided by the department. so no picture. BUT i did manage to swipe some leftover grub so i have a picture of that. but its not loaded on my computer so youre just going to have to wait.

im currently munching on pretzels and salsa. munching in the mindless straight from the bag/jar sense. i should probably stop. its gorgeous outside [though a tid windy] and i think a nice little diddie of a run is in order. or maybe a nap..by the window?

see you sassycats later.

whatre you thoughts on skippy, smucker, and jifs ‘natural’ peanut butter?

i dont so much think its ‘natural’ since they all have more than just peanut butters. but it is better than their counterparts.

i eat lots of skippy natural mostly because meijer hooks me up with super good deals that i just cannot turn down. its actually on sale this week too. uh oh..damn you meijer.



lucky duckkkkkk.

GUESS WHO FOUND THEIR ICARD!!!

and just in the nick of time.
i was in my nine am packing my stuff up at the end of the class and i was planning on shellin out the twentybuckers to get a new one before my eleven and as i was crammin my notebook and ‘course manual’ into my bag I FOUND IT! i totally squealed and started shaking i was so excited. hahaha. its the little things..right? [im guessing it got stuck in my course manual or something because i had previously checked in all my notebook and my bag and well everywhere under the sun. or so i thought.]

anyways. yeah. maaaaaade my day.

speaking of my day. it was a gooden for suuuuure. thus far anyways.
im been the opposite of productive but i dont give two licks.

[i have random pictures of figlets and peanut butter and chocolate and various snackies from last night buuuuut eh. whatevs. its MONDAY yall.]

breakfast had to be quick. and it definitely was lacking in fresh colorful fruit. :/

img_00082
corn bran. mmmm. for some reason they dont sell it at meijer so i always have to bring a box back to me when im at home. also in the bowl of fun was soymilk banana chunks and chocolate protein powder. chocolate protein powder and cereal is so bomb. i love the gritty chunks.

then class. squeal/shakefest. and some more clissclass. groan.

img_00163
ORANGE YOU GLAD I DIDNT SAY BANANA!?

my lunch turned out way orange. so to be obnoxious/excessive i put it on my orange cmn folder along with my orange phone.

my homemade hummus is the bomb. first time ive ever made it with tahini. and this was the real deal my friends. i had been looking for tahini for a while and so cath bought me some in TURKEY. i have nooooo idea what the jar says but i feel quite authentic when i eat my hummus. mmmm. turkish tahini.

after lunch i decided to NOT do the hoards of things i needed to and set out for a walk in the glorious weather. i was gone for a good two and a half hours. managed to walk about five miles. and hit up the health food store. the food coop. the new grocery store on campus. AND a korean grocery store.

the health food store/food coop are soooo overpriced but they have all the fun foods i see on blogs that want to try but cannot find elsewhere. i didnt buy anything [save a banana] but i enjoyed myself immensely. my friends think my grocery store obsession is weird. i think its lovely. i ducked into county market just to check it out and see how it compared to meijer..doesnt hold a candle. and of well i was just curious about the korean grocery store. i couldnt read a single label but i could sort of tell what things were based on the pictures. and i know what POCKY is. i didnt have any cash on me and didnt want to charge the buckfifty since it probably would have cost them more than that in transaction fees but soon that pocky will be mine.

the health food store is way on the other side of campus. well past it a bit actually. when i was perusing i got a little hungry. i was going to buy a bar [especially since they have all the fun clifs/laras that i cannot find elsewhere] but they were hecka money so i went with a banana. still the most ive ever paid for a banana. ninetyninecents a pound..really!? it was totally worth the thirtycents though. mmmm.

0330091531
cell phone pic much? i tried to be springish though. yay daffodils and red things.

all that walking felt supa good on my legs which were definitely aching when i woke up from the run/drive combo.

now i should probably get to gettin.

whatre you wearing? ;]

QUACK.
