Coffee Love

It’s Starbucks Sunday Ya’ll!  I’ve been there twice already (once for coffee and once for tea…don’t get all judge-y on me. I am still counting calories and points after-all!) Perfect for beating the Texas heat! It’s 105 (degrees, not celsius) in Dallas today. It’s melt-your-makeup-off-your-face scorching! Crazy heat, my friends! I’ve spent most of the day inside but did meet up with the boy and bestie for lunch and a…

Thankful Thursday!

I may make this a weekly cheesefest, who knows! Consider yourself warned! 🙂 What I’m thankful for today: All things caffeine and the finale of exam three. Yay! Yes, I <3 SB, however…my fave little place is by campus. Common Grounds, all the way! This week has been pretty rough. I’m three weeks from graduation and dying drowning in my studies. The alarm I’ve been setting to help remind me…

Brown-Chicken-Brown-Cow!

I gave the Healthy Choice line another chance.  This time: Ravioli Florentine Marinara.  Surprise! It’s not as awful as the other brown trash they tried to pass off as food. Again, their advertisement is wonky. These fools added cheese (this skyrockets my WW points, so I avoid it like the crazy cause of fat pants that it is), which does not come in a convenient tiny package within this microwaveable…

Food baby?

Coconut-Mango + Mahi Mahi + Cucumber + Cream Cheese + Avocado Habanero Paste This was only one of the 15 sushi rolls I made tonight. We had bundles of friends over for a nerd-night (the boys played Dungeons and Dragons…yes, the game is still around!…and the girls watched movies). It was a fun night, but ridiculously busy. Most of my friends don’t really know how to cook (and those that…

Obstacles

What I felt I looked like… I haven’t posted anything in a couple of days, my apologies. Unfortunately I got food poisoning and couldn’t bother to be more than three feet from the bathroom. I went to Subway, of all the healthy places to stop and grab a bite – then three hours later, I became intimately acquainted with my porcelain throne. If you’ve never had the pleasure of puking…

Junk in the Trunk

Sometimes the junk is hard to resist… Let’s face it, we all have “cheat” days. For me, I cheat on healthy foods when I study, and boy is it a love affair! It’s so much easier for me to reach for a bottle of Mountain Dew and  a bag of Doritos + Kit Kats. The perfect study snack, right?  WRONG! I’m still learning to move away from the junk food,…

Veggies have SWAG, right?

  Hello, lovelies! :] I hope your weekend was amazing! Mine was a bit hectic and nothing less than tons-of-fun. <3 Hanging out with besties and eating some great food? Life can't be much sweeter. Today I'm adding my Beef Stir Fry Recipe, get excited! Unfortunately, I have not had a chance to make the Green Monster, just yet. It’ll have to wait…for now. Don’t worry though, I promise to…

Oh, Reebok. Look What You Made Me Do!

I was searching for a new workout routine when I stumbled across this: Seriously? Really Reebok? Who is in charge of your advertising, because I know of a fantastic firm that would NEVER have let you all embarrass yourselves like this.  How does this appeal to the general male populous? This isn’t comical or even remotely a “only-guys-would-truly-get-this” ad. You paid good money, earned through reaching out to both males…

Food Critics Unite!

When I went to the grocery store yesterday I picked up a new brand of oatmeal [that looked amazingly nummy], a beautiful bunch of bananas (like that alliteration?) and a bag of quakes rice snacks. I’ve fully transitioned into the health-nut phase during this third week of my adventure. I haven’t worked out in a week, due to studies and stresses going on right now – so I’ve had to…

Nummies!

Alright…this looks seriously scrumptious! I’m very excited about this new blog I found and even more excited about tweaking some of these amazing recipes to be a bit healthier (most of them are pretty great already though). The easiest thing to cut out of the recipes I have found is OIL! Switching out the recommended amount for a bit of EVOO spray is a cinch! Trust me, if I can…
