Hello all! Just wanted to check in real quick and let u guys know I’m still alive but am basking in doing NOTHING for a few days since grad school is officially over 🙂 hope u guys understand! Off to a celebratory date night with Joey! I’ll be back by the end of the weeknd I promise!
Hello to all and happy Wednesday!! Also happy cinco de mayo! Hope everyone is doing something fun today, after being tortured through a class and presentations at 5 my class is going out for a little celebration, yippee!! Before I get into it, I just wanted to thank everyone for all the great comments on my last post, yay for getting rid of those evil scales. Congrats to all that have and I know others who want to get there will sometime soon! Now, for WBWW!
There were many variations of this doll, which I had all of them. In fact, here is a Magic Nursery Newborn I had!
Way Back When Music:
Way Back When Clothing/Accessories:
Brad Renfro! It seems to be a running trend that a bunch of crushes I had committed suicide, no bueno. He was in The Client & Apt Pupil, also Huck & Finn with another crush, JTT.
Did you ever wonder, what would happen under, under the umbrella tree! I LOVED this Disney Channel show.
Well, that’s it for WBWW today!! I think today was a really good one 🙂 Hope everyone enjoyed!
Hello all and happy Tuesday! Good news, besides a few hours of sleeplessness in the middle of the night, I have been feeling MUCH better today. Word to the wise, when you have a sore throat, do not fall asleep with a cough drop in your mouth, you will drool like a mad woman!! hahaha. Sorry tmi, but I’m a drooler naturally so it was OOC (out of control) last night!
I wanted to share with your guys that the other day I took the plunge and threw out my scale!!! First I wrote a little message on it 🙂 I DESERVED to throw it out because my health is about feeling good and creating an active/able body, NOT about a number. It was a little weird when Joey asked “where did your scale go?” a few days back, but I explained to him that I could be having a good day, and then weigh myself and just feel crappy. Honestly I felt a little weird, but he’s always so supportive so it didn’t phase him. I think unless you are able to not be “owned” by the scale everyone should throw these things out and SCREAM BIATCH! YOU DON’T OWN ME!! ha!
I also found this incredible song by B.O.B. (I recommend this album if you haven’t heard it) called Ghost in A Machine and it was scary how much some of these lyrics used to describe me:
Tell me where am I supposed to go?
And who am I supposed to believe.
If only you knew what I knew.
Then you could see just what I see.
So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go.
Cause everything ain’t what I used to know.
And I try to hide, but I just can’t hide no more.
There’s nothing worse than feeling like a ghost.
I think of the running away as what I used to use food for, when I was confused/sad/stressed etc I would “run away” to that comfort, where I was alone, and that in turn turned me into someone with a numbness and I felt like I didn’t matter, like I was a ghost who was screaming at times, and no one heard. I am so blessed to have overcame that feeling. Life IS worth living to it’s fullest EVERY SINGLE DAY!!
OK now since I have been pretty serious this post, I thought I would share something really funny from my past. You guys might not know this, but I used to be REALLY in love with Zac Efron, I mean ya a lot of girls had posters and such, but no one I know had this…..
I found this gem online for like $40 and I HAD to have it. He immediately became a part of the family he even
Hahaha. Sadly, when we moved Zac decided it was time to part ways, and left me for a classroom at my mom’s grade school. Ha!
Well I hope you guys enjoyed a little taste of my goofiness!
Lastly, wanted to share my yummy lunch. I decided from now on I’m just gonna share my random/fun meals. I get tired of trying to post every meal. Hope that’s ok! Lunch was 2 eggs, 1 roma tomato, and some TJ’s chorizo. OMG SOOOO GOOD! I am seriously obsessing over this soy chorizo.
So for a final wrap up, why do you guys deserve to throw out your scale?? And have you ever felt like a ghost?
Hello all and happy Monday! I am actually not feeling very well tonight 😦 I think James’ sickness may have rubbed off on me, but anyways, I thought I would give you a COMPLETE rundown of my eats for today because I haven’t done that in awhile! Hope everyone had a great day & enjoy!
For oats I am currently using Bob’s Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, and I must say they are FAB. My oats this morning consisted of 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, 1/2 mashed nanner, cinnamon, & 1.5 tbsp Archer Farm’s Chocolate peanut butter (from target)
Morning Snack:I decided to pick up this big jug at Whole Foods because I wanted to have a juice “snack” that I can have with all sorts of green goodies in it. Turns out this juice kinda sucks, ha. I think that they overcompensate the green stuff by adding too much fruit, and it is extremely sweet, like it kinda made my tummy hurt. No bueno.
Tried out a few new Trader Joe’s goodies:
Ok, so it was a day of fails, these cookies were nasty. The thing is the actual cookie was pretty good, but there were like crunchy bits of freeze dried (my guess) nanner in the cookie. And I don’t know about you, but when I bit into a soft cookie I don’t want to taste something super crunchy.
Instead I had 5 pieces of yum
And a few of my new OBSESSION:
*OK so that seems like a lot of snackage, but really it wasn’t I promise!
I went over to Joey’s a whipped up a favorite dinner of mine, Whole Wheat Pumpkin Gnocchis!! HERE IS THE LINK TO MY ORIGINAL RECIPE which I got from Making Good Choices. We also made some roasted broccoli with garlic (just tossed broccoli in oil, salt, pepper, and a clove of garlic. In the oven for 10 min at 425)
*This time I used parm cheese to sprinkle on the gnocchis.
And later, my new FAVORITE nut butter mix
Well that’s it from me tonight. Hope you enjoyed an in depth look at my daily diet!
Hello all! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, I know I did! Just thought I would share some pics from the weekend & I promise to be back to normal postings tomorrow!
BEST wagon ride ever:
Well, that’s it from me tonight! Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday evening and it’s pizza night for me! Also yay for my last week of classes!!!!
