A Birthday Celebration and Frustration

Sorry I’ve been neglecting you guys. To be honest, I get kinda discouraged fast and with the lack of comments it is discouraging to me and wonder if there’s anyone really reading or if people like my blog. If you are reading and have ANY suggestions let me know!

Well let me start by saying it’s my dad’s birthday today! We went out for breakfast this morning and I ordered a veggie egg white omlet with tomatoes and dry wheat toast on the side. It was delicious. However, I hate going out to breakfast. It’s probably the meal I hate most to go out for because I like to make my own breakfast and add as much PB and banans as I want! 😉 A couple hours later I was hungry again and ate my shakeology.

Then I decided to make a bake. I’ve been wanting to bake for sometime now and just decided to today. I made orange walnut brownies.

They were delicious and soo moist! Great for a sweet tooth!

I decided then to go walk the dog and play with Howie all day long! Boy! He’s tiring! I wish I had all that energy! Then it was time for dinner! My dad wanted gyros. I don’t eat those so I ordered a greek salad. Sorry for the lack of pictures I just always forget about them!

Then it was time to sing Happy Birthday! The old man is 54 this year!

We had cheesecake for his birthday with apple and cherry toppings! I put apple topping on mine and now I’m stuffed and feeling a little guilty not gonna lie. I have vacation coming up in July and not gonna lie, I’m scared to look at myself in a swimsuit! :O

It’s like I went from never allowing myself to eat anything to now thinking ” I can have it because I need to up my calorie intake anyways” and I think also to prove to myself that I’m not restricting. This ED thing is soo complicated I swear. Why can’t I just be normal about food?! UGH!

Have you ever had these same thoughts before?

More frozen yogurt

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday! I’ve been soo busy!

Kyle and I have gotten ice cream pretty much every night for more than a week straight now. But last night my sister, her husband, and my nephew tagged along! This was last’s night’s latest concoction. Mine was a mix of strawberry and dutch chocolate frozen yogurt with a chocolate covered banana mixed in. Kyle’s is a mix of butterfinger and cookie dough. The lady put in soo much cookie dough, Kyle didn’t eat them all so I ate a few!

And here is a pic of Howie with sundae all over his face! 🙂

This morning started with a bowl of cereal for both Kyle and I. Then we were out the door to get our hair cuts and my hair colored.

I got an ombre look with layered layers and Kyle just got a trim. This is what my hair looks like…

Then we met up with my mom, Howie, and my sister for lunch at Boston’s. Kyle had a burger and I ordered a Mediterranean salad. Sorry no pic! 😦

But here is a pic of Kyle and Howie after we ate.

🙂 and Now I’m about to have myself a glass of wine! Burgers for dinner. I’ll post more later! 😉

Picture overload

Sorry I didn’t post again last night. We got back a little later than expected and I was exhausted! So let me tell you a little about my day. I watched Howie till the afternoon. Then my friend Laurie (the girl I’m moving in with this August) came over and we caught up. Since I haven’t been home since March I really missed shopping, so we decided to go to Target! One of my favorite stores! I bought a few things that I wanted and only one that I needed. ha. Figures.

For a snack before we left. I ate a thinkthin bar. I know I said I was going to do the cleanse but I figured I couldn’t do it this weekend because I forgot I had a few things going on.

Now, I’ll show you a few things I bought.

I bought this cute dress for a wedding that Kyle and I have to attend in September. I couldn’t pass it up! It was only 25 bucks!

Next, I bought some new sandals because I saw my sister had bought some and I thought they were so cute so I had to get them!

Of course I had to get them in two colors! 😉

Laurie got hungry, and I was craving Panera since I haven’t been able to have it! So we went. She ordered the turkey artichoke panini. And I of course ordered a salad. I ordered the Meditteranean Salmon salad. I love this salad. Ever since it came out, whenever I go there I order this with a slice of whole grain bread on the side.

I ate it all! I was soo hungry yesterday for some reason.

After our shopping and lunch date I headed home to get ready real quick to go to Costco. We arrived at Costco and realized it closed at 6, so we only had an hour to grocery shop! I kicked into high gear and grabbed everything I needed! For some reason the time crunch gave me a little anxiety that I wasn’t going to be able to get everything I wanted or I would forget something. Well, turns out I got everything I needed and more! 🙂

So here’s what we bought…this isn’t everything, but it’s most of it. I was too tired last night when we bought it all so I took a lot of things out of the fridge and did it that way! haha

After we left Costco we headed to Longhorn Steakhouse and waited a half hour before we were seated. We sat down and right away knew what we wanted. I ordered the chicken strawberry salad with a side of sweet potato because I freaking love roasted sweet potatoes at places. This salad was soo good. It came with fresh fruit, feta cheese, candied pecans, grilled chicken, and a raspberry vinagerette. I ordered it with no pecans because since they were candied I knew I wouldn’t eat them.

Sorry no picture, then we stopped at kohl’s and this happened…

So cute! Our last stop was culvers! I ordered a small concrete vanilla mixer with strawberries and bananas. They ended up not having bananas…I was soo mad. So the girl gave me a medium instead with extra strawberries and I thought since I didn’t get my pecans at dinner I’ll have them right now…So she added pecans as well. Can you say stuffed like a turkey?! That I was…almost uncomfortablly full actually. yuck. so today I started with coffee and lemon water! Lemon water is great for detox!

I’ll be having wheat toast with peanut butter and bananas for breakfast. Picture to come.
Now, to get the day started. I have a long day ahead of me! Walking the dog after breakfast and then getting ready for a graduation party in the city…should be fun! 🙂

Chili’s fail

Last night was relaxing. My parents and I originally planned on going to Costco but we decided to go today instead. For dinner we went to Chili’s. This was my first time ever going to that restaurant, but quite honestly I wasn’t impressed. I ordered the plain grilled chicken salad. However, when my order came out, there were tortilla chip pieces on top and honestly I’m picky and would not eat that. First because I think I may be gluten intolerant seeing as how I rarely consume glluten. Is that possible to become gluten intolerant just because for so long you have not consumed it?

So I didn’t eat the salad because the second time it came out it had the same tortilla pieces on top! Really?! and I waited an extra half hour! For a salad! I know, right?! It didn’t stop there though. Our waitress wasn’t very good either. We kept having to ask for more drinks. Usually I don’t mind, but yesterday I was a thirsty girl!

Last night after dinner, we went to bed, bath, and beyond and I found the best straws ever! The other day when Kyle and I went to Zarlengo’s for gelato he ordered a strawberry slush and in his slush was a really thick straw and I told him I wanted a straw like that. Well, B,B, and Beyond had them! You better believe I bought them.

This morning for breakfast I had chocolate shakeology with a banana mixed it. I will be doing the cleanse for the next two days just because I feel yucky and I need to reset my digestive system.

Today we are watching Howie and going to Costco! I loveeeeee going to Costco! It has everything in bulk and for a hungry beast like myself it’s perfect! I’ll post later what we buy!

Now I think I’m gonna go for a run!
Have a great morning! 🙂
