A New Day

Hey everyone!

I hope your day is going fantastic!

So recently I’ve been having a little trouble eating a little too much to the point where I’m almost overly stuffed! So today I wanted to cut that out and start eating a little better!

But here’s my ice cream from last night haha

This was a mix of oreo and cheesecake ice cream…you think it would be good kinda like a piece of oreo cheesecake! Nope…I was very disappointed, it was gross.

This morning started with banana protein pancakes with egg whites and spinach on the side dipped into some SF syrup. Now, I rarely ever use SF syrup. Usually I use low sugar because the SF kind contains aspartame which is an artificial sweetener. I try to stay far away from those.

I then took Howie and Armani (my dog) for a walk to the park. We stayed there for a little bit so I could get Howie and Armani away from Kyle and my dad. My dad and Kyle were working on building Howie a swing set! It’s coming out great. Tomorrow it should be done! I’ll make sure to take pictures!

When we got home I made Howie and myself lunch. I made Howie ravioli with a piece of buttered bread and I had this:

This was 2 pieces of falafel, piece of chicken, broc and cauliflower, a sliced pear, and some blackberries. It was delicious, but now my stomach hurts a little so I’m gonna go lay down!

Hope you guys have the best day ever! 🙂

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! 🙂
