Rain Rain Go Away

Yup, lotsa rain :( Forgive me for not posting, but for some reason, my brand new ac adapter for my laptop dies and I couldn't charge my computer for a few days till I got a new one. Ugh.
I was home from work today because I switched shifts with someone else, and now I have to work her shift on
This morning started off with an epic bowl of oatmeal

And dinner tonight will be a HUGE salad topped with grilled chicken breast that my mom and dad gave me. I can't wait!!

I have a review of a product that I recently fell in love with after I picked it up at Whole Foods on Monday

I have to say these are definitely a 10/10!!, so delicious, they are a little pricey and the portion is somewhat small, but I would totally buy these again. I am really trying to cut back on my meat consumption, and these totally taste like chicken. Honestly. My friend did not know these were meatless, she thought it was really chicken. Super good and highly recommended!

My mom and dad also gave me a huge bag of avocados, I'm going to use some in the salad tonight, but I have no idea as to how to use the rest! I want to try to use them up before they go bad. Any ideas? :)

I had another nutritionist appointment yesterday, and for some reason my weight was down by 3 1 week! I'm eating pretty good meals, so I don't know :( Maybe too much exercise? So I have to go back in, in 2 weeks. My guess is maybe I am just not getting as many calories as I think I am getting and maybe over doing the exercise :( So now I have to try to get more calories in and cut down on my exercise. I hope that works.

Since I can't seem to find PB&C0's Mighty Maple anywhere here in Vancouver, I have been improvising. I made my own concoction of it with my natural peanut butter and mixing in some 100% Organic Maple Syrup :) Tastes pretty much just like it! Although the maple syrup was $14! It's quite large though and will last me a long time, I love real maple syrup!

Off to do some dished now and laundry :( Hope you all have a wonderful evening!!

Dear Blog

..No I haven't forgotten you! And I promise to update more than once a week! How is everyone?! The past week has been pretty much the same old..lotsa work, some P90x , some swimming and a great St. Patricks Day get together. First off a review...the lovely people from Betty Lou's Inc. sent me a HUGE package of goodies to review. They have a great mixture of healthy, yummy snacks..some are Gluten free, Vegan and Organic..thee is pretty much something for everyone! So far the samples I have tried have been amazing!

Almond Butter Balls..YUM.These are so good..and filling! I had one after my workout the other day and it was amazing. Not to sweet and lots of great Almond Butter flavor :)

Organic Chocolate Spirulina Patties. Ok, these are my fave so far! They taste so much like Amazing Grass' Green Superfood energy Bars..but in patty form! These are absolutely delicious.

So far that is all I have tried, but I am looking forward to trying all the rest..there are cookies, fruit bars and some protein shakes!
Check out the website at Betty Lou's

I saw my nutritionist on Tuesday and she said I am making great progress :) I do need to add a few more calories a day, but other than that I am right on track :) I want to stay on track like this :) I feel so good and healthy, summertime is coming and that is usually the hardest time for my eating. I don't really know why, maybe it's the heat and I'm really not that hungry? But this sumer I am determined to keep this up :)

I went to a St. patricks Day party on Wednesday, it was a blast, here are a few pics

Right now I am enjoying a lovely day off from work :) My work is being painted today so we didn't have to go in :) So I am going to enjoy a nice bowl of oatmeal and go swimming this afternoon and some P90x this evening.

I am so happy that it is the weekend! and it is sunny here in Vancouver :)

I hope it is sunny where you are :) I am going to make a HUGE effort to update everyday!..maybe even twice a day ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!


Erica Is having an awesome contest! head on over and check it out :)

Remember me?

Hello all! Sorry i have been away so mom was super sick for a few days so I went to stay with her, she's much better now. Then I was out and about enjoying the beautiful spring like weather here. Super sunny and warm. The street I live on is lined all the way down with bright pink cherry blossom trees. i am going to try and get some pics tomorrow and post them, because they are absolutely gorgeous :)

Tonight's dinner was something I've been eating quite a bit of the past week, mainly for lunch.

Veggie sandwich on Whole Grain Bread. I am happy to say that I have officially kicked my fear of bread to the curb! This sandwich is so yummy. You can pretty much use whatever you want on it. I use romaine lettuce, tomato, dill pickles, hot banana peppers(yum), thin sliced red bell pepper and avocado! I am so obsessed with these sandwiches. From someone who had the biggest fear of bread, I am now eating it 5 times a week :)

I'm still continuing on with my swimming and the p90x. I do swimming 4 mornings a week and p90x 5 times a week. I take weekends off :) I am still trying to conquer yoga. I just have so much trouble with it. I tell you, yoga may look easy but I assure you it is not. I break a sweat within 10 minutes easy. I guess it would help if I were a little more flexible :)

I went out on a limb and tried out a new peanut butter

Kraft !00% Natural Peanut butter. It's pretty darn good! Normally I buy organic PB, but my grocery store didn't have nay this time around.

I went to see Alice In Wonderland last night with some friends and wow was it amazing! If you get a chance , go see it!

I'm off to take a nice, hot bubble bath :) I will have a few reviews tomorrow :) I'll leave you with a few pics from after the movie last night. Enjoy your night loves!


New post tonight!

I'm here and still alive!!! I will have a fresh new post tonight :)
