Hola! How is everyone?? I just can’t get into a regular posting schedule! My life basically consists of work, the gym, and laying in my bed becoming addicted to Jersey Shore and watching all the Netflix my brother’s instant queue will allow. Also, I eat a lot.
I treat myself to sushi a lot. I should probably also treat myself to vacuuming my rug …
Miso soup with three brown rice rolls: shrimp and avocado, vegetable, and eel and cucumber
Ezekiel toast with a two egg + two egg white puff with feta and salsa
Chicken, red onion, and avocado wrap with a mountain of carrots, Triscuits, and homemade hummus
Roasted vegetable bowl with brussels sprouts, broccoli, carrots, eggplant, mushrooms, and kidney beans plus two slices of Ezekiel toast with avocado and S&P
Maple Vanilla froyo with a serving of Trader Joe’s peanut flour (mixed with water and salt) and chocolate whipped cream. Yes, chocolate whipped cream. GET SOME.
This is my quick and easy go to dinner: sweet potato baked in the microwave with cottage cheese (and sometimes ketchup), plus a salad of mixed greens and various veggies (here, red onion, mushrooms, and steamed brocc) topped with Trader Joe’s cilantro salad dressing .. aka, crack in a bottle.
(of the last few days, anyway .. the past couple of weeks my bed has just been much more appealing than the cold, dark 6am outdoors …)

ANDDD tomorrow is an off day! Some other random highlights of my life:
10 pounds of the most delicious candy corn ever .. and I don’t normally like candy corn!
IT’S BAAAA-AAAACK! Thank the sweet baby Jesus! I bought a Trilogy, Original, Gingerberry, and Cosmic Cranberry. And the other morning had a Guava Goddess. Tomorrow I’m thinking of buying the botanicals. Having a Whole Foods .3 miles from work is really not conducive to saving money by any means.
Okayyy now that we’re all caught up, it’s time for me to make my embarassingly huge nightly mountain of popcorn and pass out to the soothing sounds of Family Guy.
