img_0061
after a jammin yoga sesh i was cravin some deliciousness so i went with the best clif bar flavor. ever. and a big juicy orange. none of that bitty cutie nonsense.

i went to the arc. using my license. i can only do that twice a semester so i had better find that silly ole icard or get a new one. stat.

five miles and some weights later i was a hot sweaty mess.
speaking of hot..i dont know if its the hormones or the endorphins or the adrenaline or what but there was a fiiiiiine lookin fella gettin his lift on and i wanted jump on it for sure.

ANYWAYS.

lunch was pretty much a lot like yesterday. especially in that it was DELICIOUS.

img_0074
the rest of my butternut squash with some peppers and chickpeas. all on a bed of spinach. today everything was popped in the microwave for a quick steamin to switch it up from yesterdays madness. and an apple. also. please note my dear lunch guests.

aka I GOT A PACKAGE OF NEWMANS OWN ORGANIC GOODNESS!

img_00641
sooo much food. there is no way i can review it all by myself. so i thought maybe some of yall would be interested in assisting me..do i smell a giveaway coming up!?

my excited was soon smashed down by the man or the dean maybe? i dont know. either which way i had to go to class. bummer.

img_0078
class snacks. mostly for my sanity.

img_0094
good grief i eat a lot of sweet potatoes. [i think mostly to evoke my favorite comment out of veegee. ;] ]

huzzah. i am no longer at work. i am chillin on my couch at HOME!

onward.

img_0099
oh man. this was A MAZE ING. went back for another pack of chocolate covered pretzels and a few more spoons of peanut butter.

bedtime for bonzo.

img_0102
last of a mishmash of cereals. frozen naner. blues. and soy milk mixed with a bit of chocolate protein powder to help with keepin my tum satisfied throughout the morn.

class. exam. and the off to the cupcake factory!

img_0082
here we have the last of my spinach. the last of my peppers. the last of the black beans and salsa. and the last of the kashi crackers. im a pro at cleanin out the kitchen. haha.

i made myself an iced vanilla latte for the trip home and off i went.

i got home HANGRY and so the mum her dudefriend and i went out for thai food at exotic thai. sooo good. i took pictures but they arent on the computer yet so youre just gonna have to wait. i know i know. its killin you.

now im gonna fill up on as much tacky crime scene drama as i can for the next week. ice cream and yoga seem quite plausible for my future. :]

night all.

p.s. sorry if this post doesnt flow well. work interruptions and a three hour drive/dinner/etc caused some breaks in postage.

p.s.s. how about another question?

what was your first job?

have you seen my icard?

because i cannot find it ANYWHERE. grumble grumble.

no matter. this is not a lost and found blog.

lets begin with my late night noshes.

img_00191
d’anjou pear. lindt chocolate. almonds.

and then i was satisfied and went to bed.

hahahaha. i think we know better.
i mean come on now. whats a day without peanut butter?
no day of mine. thats for damn sure.

img_0022
random cereal mix. soymilk. frozen banana. chocolate chunks. PEANUT BUTTER.

and then i went back for another spoonful or three. mmmm.

this morning i wanted oatmeal but opted for something a bit more low maintenance for the sake of time.

img_00231
cottage cheese. kashi h2h. blues. and some chopped up pistachios for good measure.

i had wanted to try sarahs cottage cheese nonsense but it was early and my magic bullet is anything but considerate. all in good time my friends. all in good time.

then i discovered my icard is missing. and i NEED it for important university things. but mostly i just wanted to do some crosstraining after my classes. bummer. and its twentybucks to replace goshdarnit. thats like eighteen pounds of bananas ill never get to eat. :/

after class i came home and ripped apart my room in search of my icard but no such luck. so i comforted my heavy heart with a delightful little treat.

img_00291
cutiecutie and reeeeeses!!! my group won the review game of sorts we had played in my discussion this morning [i swear in not still in middle school]. so i took my handful of reeses for winning. and then a handful or two more because some of my group members didnt want theres. [doubleyouteeeff?!] of course i had more than just the one pictured. but i was trying to be cutesie.

since i couldnt crosstrain at the arc and its GORGE out again today i decided id just go for an easy run. reeses arent necessarily the best prerun fuel so i ate half a clif bar. [remember the one i didnt get to yesterday? his day had finally come. mwahahaha.]

i just went for a nice threemiles and only had to deal with one full red light and a couple halvsies. schwing. i got home and hung out with my girl jillian michaels for a few while we shredded it up. level three style.

img_0032
heres my lunch ‘salad’. aka a bit of romaine and spinach with a MOUND of butternut squash and some green and yellow peppers all roasted up. grapes joined the party.

roommate rant: so this gal that i live with. shes the antithesis of a healthy eater. she lives on fiery cheetos and blue kool-aid but whatever. to each her own. however. every time i am cooking something with a nutritional value she makes a big scene about how gross and smelly and disgusting my food is. she walked in this afternoon when i was heating up my squash and was like ‘OH MY GOD. WHAT IS THAT SMELL. IT SMELLS HEALTHY. THATS SO GROSS. WHAT IS THAT!?’ ugh. its getting old. okay. end rant.

anywho. now im just sort of chillin out. pretending my neverending list of things to do does not exist. sigh. if only.

ive gotta work tonight so if youre jonesin for a cupcake feel free to stop on by. ;]

e!

whats the last thing you lost?



irish..

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.

hello monday.

img_00032
babies for breakfast. nom!
aka cottage cheese and blues and fone. [iber takes too long to type?]

img_00062
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.

img_0009
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.

img_00112
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.
img_0040
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.

img_0048
img_00491
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.
img_00571
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.

img_0064
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.

img_0067
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.

img_0071
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. ?

img_00072
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.

img_0065
talk about a great product. leakage protection and motivation all rolled into one.

hahaha. sorry im so crude.

now for real. that is all.
