Love Affair

Day Five! I went to work and came home to the beau and one of my besties waiting for me. Coffee run (the Starbucks ban didn’t last too long, but I did stay within my caloric intake limit for the day and even got a TALL size. Can anyone say epic restraint skills?) followed by lounging and a Thai food adventure. It’s been great and the energy is still coming…

The Cleanse

Alright…so far, so good. It’s been three days and (though I feared it may happen) I was not constantly sprinting to the bathroom. Anytime I hear “cleanse” I think the worst! Spiritual cleansing is one thing, but flushing out toxins from the human body just sounds dangerous.  Thankfully, the Advocare Herbal Cleanse is surprisingly gentle. Yes, I’d been told it was kind, but I had my doubts and feared for…

Holy Chobani!

I’m officially a yogurt-convert!  Let me tell you, I have always loathed hated never particularly cared for yogurt. It’s a texture thing. No one has ever gotten it right for me. Dannon…eh. Yoplait came close with the (dare I tell you?) Go-gurt line, but I soon grew out of the flavors, as they’re specifically designed for the more sucrophillic teeny-weenie kiddies and NOT for the more adult palate. [Yes, I…

Kickin’ A Cold!

I am one of the insanely blessed persons who gets stalked by allergies, all year long! It’s annoying and awful and they manage to make things worse. UGH!  For the past two days I’ve felt siiiiiiick. Mostly allergies, a bit of a cold. The horrible sinus headaches…oh my! Bleh.  Total grossness.  I felt like this: My taste buds have been all screwy. I made meatloaf for the boys and it…

Milestones

I’ve been absent for quite a while. Sorry about that, friends! I do have fantastic news though! Life got quite crazy hectic wonderfully adventurous! I graduated! Sic ‘Em Bears! It will not be “official, marching across the stage and grabbing my diploma” until December because most of the fam couldn’t make it, and it simply wouldn’t be the same without all of them there! Sic ‘Em Bears! Class of 2012…

Test Anxiety

I have finals this week, hence the lack of posts. On top of pushing back workouts and trying failing seriously trying to not eat junk food at my desk, I also have the worst case of test anxiety. As a senior who has sent out graduation invitations and is getting ready to have a major party with friends and family…well, it would flat out SUCK to bomb my final exam….

Many the Miles

Mile 1: Just starting to break a sweat, the past 9 minutes have gone by smoothly. My legs are still reaching for the perfect stride and my asthmatic lungs are now warmed up. Mile 2: My pace is steady, 18 minutes past and my breathing is a bit hitchy. Thoughts are wandering to the graduation next week and the impending doom of having so many crazy-wonderful family members around. I’ve…

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…
