Life is Too Short

To be anything but happy. Wouldn't it be great if I could actually actually live my life according to that motto? I'm going to start trying harder. For example, I could begin this post with a rant about the terrible morning commute yesterday...

But instead I'll show you the beautiful sunrise I enjoyed during my drive this morning.I wish this picture actually captured what I saw. It was gorgeous.

Should we talk eats?

Boo me, I forgot to take a picture of breakfast (again!) on Wednesday. I had a Light & Fit strawberry cheesecake yogurt with some grapes mixed in. I know the blog world hates these yogurts, but they were on sale last week! But now that I have some Chobani coupons from the awesome Melissa at Crunches for Cupcakes I can finally get some of the good stuff!

Wednesday's lunch was the world's best combination: cracked pepper turkey and spinach and artichoke cream cheese.
I ate this on a thin with some fresh baby spinach to top it off. I also had some sweet potato chips with apple butter for was recommended on the FSTG bag. It was a good mix but didn't compare to the almond butter combo! And of course I had more grapes.

Dinner was a Morningstar Farms black bean burger on a whole-wheat wrap topped with pickles, red onion, ketchup and sriracha.
On the side I had some jalapeno FSTG chips. Between the sriracha and chips my mouth was on FIRE! I also enjoyed a large diet coke (fountain of course) so I was feeling pretty full after.

But, I managed to make room for my last VitaBrownie!
Sad faceee! To it being the last one, of course, not to the brownie. It was yummmmy!

This morning's breakfast...
Maple and brown sugar oats featuring honey peanut butter. Oatmeal is just so much better with pb.

Lunch was some spinach and artichoke cream cheese with seedlander snackers and peas spiced up with pepper and garlic.
Lunch was on the light side so I could save room for...

Yogen Früz!!!
I had been looking forward to this for weeks! I met up with Bryan on my break and we headed to mall to get some froyo. Mine was chocolate topped with kiwis, strawberries, and chocolate shavings. Party in my mouth!!

Bryan got vanilla with pineapples, kiwis, strawberries, and white chocolate.
I really loved the pineapples in his.

Tonight's dinner featured my favorite sweet sammy...
Peanut butter and apple butter. Bye bye apple butter :( But I saved the jar for some OIAJ! I also had cucumbers and light dressing, barbecue popchips (the besttt) and strawberries. Yay for lots of fresh fruit today!

It's always tough to workout on Thursdays because by now I am totally drained but I WILL do turbosculpt at 8:30!!


  1. AHHH SOO JELOUS OF YOUR YOGEN FRUZ! that looks great girlfrand! yumm!

  2. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Yogen Fruz!!!!!!!!! They have one of those in the mall near me!! Love it!!

    I love your peter pan peanutbutter!! I have not seen that pb in a while!!!

    Love ya girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I would give ANYTHING for a fro-yo place near me! That looks incredible! :)

  4. Pictures never do sunrises/sunsets justice...what a beautiful way to start your day!!

    That froyo looks DELISH! I'm so glad ice cream season is right around the corner :)

  5. Funny thing is, we CAN live life by the motto! I personally always seem to get it in my head that life is too hard to be happy all the time, but that's not true. Sure, crappy things are going to happen, but WE are each control of our attitudes. So WAY TO GO for focusing on the beautiful sunrise :D

    Your eats are so colorful and pretty! And that VitaBrownie made my mouth water. Is it weird that they're pretty much my dessert of choice?

  6. Hey chickie I just wanted to say thank you on your sweet comment on my blog!

    delish eats as usual! esp the bbq popchips! my fave =)

  7. my only comment: STOP TAKING PICTURES WHILE YOU'RE DRIVING !!!!!!!!!
