hello everyone!  thanks to bobbi’s reader’s challenge, i actually feel like i have people reading my blog now.  hooray!  i look forward to learning more about everyone as i continue this blogging journey 🙂

anyway i know i said i’d update last night, but i suck.   i promised myself that i would keep my computer in the office so that i’d actually get a chance to unplug when i get home from work, and since i had some real housewives to catch up on, i just didnt make it back to that room last night.  (mind you i could hardly even keep my eyes open to finish watching my favorite divas, but thats a different story!)

anyway since its been so long since i’ve posted, i’m going to zoom through this.  one of these days i will become a more regular blogger… i hope you understand 🙂

soo menu monday.  ha i suck at sticking to menus!  monday i got home and was in a GRUMPY mood.  i dragged myself to the gym and did some strength training, but couldnt muster up the energy to cook.  the bf and i got individual pizzas from felicia’s in ardmore.  i got a “veggie” pizza (aka broccoli, haha.  i was disappointed.) and i ate THE WHOLE THING.  oy.  it was good though, and i mean it wasnt that big! hehe.

tuesday i was able to snag a picture of my goodies for the day:


so to break it down for ya – breakfast was yogurt + kashi, grapes, and tea (no surprise there)… lunch was a grilled chicken, sharp prov, tomato, pepper sammy from the cafe downstairs – oh and a side of the best roasted asparagus i’ve ever had.  holy yum.  snack was the string cheese and carrots… and dinner – despite eating the carrots with the intention of portion control at dinner… was a big bowl of pad thai that i had while out with some work friends.  hopefully the fact that we laughed all the way through dinner meant i had a good ab workout 😉

wednesday was the standard breakfast (second verse, same as the first) but with a naner instead of the grapes.  i also had a morning snack because i was helping out with a recruiting event at work and wasnt sure when i’d be able to eat, so i had the string cheese early.  the recruiting event stressed me out, so when i got to lunch, i made a beeline for the calzone line… oops.  but my spinach and chicken calzone (with the fluffiest ricotta ever!) was SO GOOD.  so i didnt feel too bad 🙂  i skipped the carrots for snack, but had a kudos bar instead.  i know these have like zero nutritional value, but it was just the right amount of chocolate that it works for me.  i headed to the gym where i ran the first day of yesterday’s training schedule (15 minutes running +5 min warmup/7 min cool down = 2.37 miles!)dinner was taco pasta salad, which robert officially said is his favorite of my meals!  i have to admit its so good, and i had this portion… and then another.  oops! 


finally today – breakfast was the same as yesterday (its so much easier to do breakfast when you have a routine!)  and lunch is currently the best salad ever!  again from the same little cafe downstairs (pagano’s market, if anyone is interested!) i’ve never had a salad there because i was never overly impressed with their salad bar, but today it was calling my name – it had everything i love!  i had only a little bit of spring mix, topped with lots of garlicky asparagus, snap peas + tomatoes, fresh green beans, grilled eggplant (omg this is my favorite part!), grilled chicken, and a little taste of pasta salad.  i am in love.  oh and honest tea moroccan mint green tea on the side.  heaven.

i almost forgot to mention that i tried my first yerba mate tea tuesday!  it was honest tea’s tropical version of yerba mate, and it was pretty good!  i had it again yesterday and thought it was a little too sweet, but as a once-in-a-while drink, its tasty.  i love these honest teas – they are usually just right – not too sweet.  my fav.

oh!  and guess what?!  our little garden is finally coming along.  i present to you our first tomato!


who else is growing a garden this year?  what are you growing?
