Brownie for Breakfast

I was planning on hitting up the gym this morning, but I was soo tired so I decided to go back to bed. I told myself that when Kyle was back to work I would get my butt to the gym everyday. I guess I can’t expect myself to do that when I didn’t go to the gym EVERYDAY at school. What an unrealistic goal…

I woke up and waited a little while before I had breakfast to get hungry. When I finally did I had this…

It was blueberry cluster cereal from Kashi mixed with fiber one in almond milk. Then topped with blackberries, a drizzle of almond butter, and an orange walnut brownie. Yummm.

It was delicious. Now, I’m gonna go walk the dog in a bit and ride bikes with a friend. Today Kyle and I have an ice cream date with another couple. Funn! I’m getting soo sick of ice cream, but I really want to see them. We’ll see if I order anything…

And tomorrow I probably won’t post anything because I have to go back to Charleston (3 hr. drive) to pack up the rest of my apartment and put it in a storage shed. I’ll be gone ALLL day!

I hope you guys have a beautiful day today and tomorrow! Talk to you later loves!


Post Mother’s Day

Hey you guys!

I wanted to share a few things with you! First of all Happy Belated Mother’s Day! Sorry no post yesterday! I was trying to post from my phone, but it wasn’t working! I have a confession to make! I have eaten ice cream the last two nights! :/ And last night I went wayyyy over board with the sweets but let me show you what they were:

This was the MOST DELICIOUS thing I’ve ever tasted in my life! No seriously though, this was amazing! It was homemade cherry cheesecake made by my Auntie Carol. Amazing. Next I had a piece of this…

This was a cinnamon crumb bunt cake. Yes, my aunt put a flower in the middle like My Big Fat Greek Wedding, because my whole family loves that movie! We quote it alll the time! 😀 I’m not crazy about bunt cake though, so I had a veryyyy small peice! Then there were also frosted brownies, apple slices, and rice krispies. I couldn’t control myself yesterday so I had a brownie, TWO rice krispies ( a chocolate and vanilla), piece of cheesecake, and that piece of bunt cake. Okay I know right? What was I thinking?
ugh! Okay, then my sister drove me home after our family party and Kyle calls me. He asks if I want to go to Zarlengo’s ( one of my favorite ice cream places) because all of our friends are going up there. So I go. And I ordered something…I couldn’t resist! I would have been the only one not eating ice cream and I didn’t want to feel like the old days where I was always the one not eating. So I ordered a small gelato with a scoop of tiramisu and chocolate espresso. Tiramusu was my favorite. I wish I would have gotten all tiramisu.

Well, as you can guess this morning I woke up feeling bad and FAT. I know, I hate that word too. I decided to go to the gym this morning! Best idea ever! I’m sooo happy I went! All my old friends from the gym were still there and sooo happy to see me as I was them! I got in a good workout too! 750 calories burned! Yeahhh buddy! I went home and quickly made a chocolate shakeology with a banana. I was starving because I skipped out on breakfast. Again, because I felt FAT.

As I reflect on this morning and my own thoughts, I can’t tell if I’m really trying to eat better or if my ED is coming back and I’m trying to restrict again. Only time will tell, but I’m gonna do my best to NOT restrict!

Hope you guys all have the best intuitive eating 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! 🙂
