We’re having a heat wave…

So, it might hit 50 today, which for Kentucky in January, is pretty freaking awesome. Unfortunately it’s not staying, so I will be getting out there to enjoy it while it lasts!

Anyway, trying to keep this brief, so here’s a quick look at what I ate yesterday:


Waffles, banana, SF syrup, PB, scrambled egg, low sodium V8


Honey roasted peanuts

Went for a 4-mile walk/run before lunch…I think in the end, I ran 3.25 miles and walked 0.75; I just went with what my body told me and didn’t push too hard or go too easy. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but the machine said I burned 460 calories. I really need a heart rate monitor!

I also had a cup of coffee with Equal & 1% milk before my snack 😉


Tuna wrap, edamame, grapefruit, chocolate milk

Behold the amazing grapefruit spoon! I don’t know how I ate them without this thing…I picked it up in Gatlinburg, it has serrated edges, plus a cute grapefruit design on the handle. Hehe!




Okay, so what happened was, I wanted some of these on Tuesday, don’t know why; but when I went to buy them, they got stuck in the machine (should’ve taken it as a sign) and so I bought another one to make sure the first one came out and I ended up with 2! But they are gone now and I enjoyed them while they were here 😉


I tried to avoid my mid-afternoon snack to compensate but I actually got hungry around 4:00 before I left work.

I also had some tea during the day…I really like the Traditional Medicinals brand, I’ve used them for when I had colds in the past. This type is called “Women’s Liberty” and is supposed to promote healthy hormone balance. It tastes pretty spicy too!

Women's Liberty w/ Chicks Rule mug, if only I'd planned it!

Last night was awesome! We ended up having vegetarian burritos…I cooked up some Fantastic Foods Vegetarian taco filling, which had a very good taste and consistency. I’m not a veggie but a friend of ours is, so usually our girl’s nights remain meat-free as well 🙂 On the side were some chips, questo and guacamole. YUM!

It was also a friend’s birthday, so we enjoyed some chocolately cupcakes with whipped icing, double YUM!


When I crunched the numbers, I went a little overboard on calories today but thankfully I burned a nice chunk off and I will strive to balance it out the next few days.

Happy Thursday all!

FYI – I checked the remaining PB Larabars when I went home and mine matched the number on the list, eek. I’m going to call today. They said this affects all of the PB flavor since they were first released in June of 2008, so just because you purchased it a while back doesn’t mean you are safe. If you have any of the Peanut Butter Cookie Larabars or Jamfrakas PB bars, please throw them out, don’t take a chance. You don’t want to get sick. Just try another flavor for now! I highly recommend cinnamon roll and ginger snap 😉
