So let’s rewind to Thursday’s eats.
I began my day with a bowl of apple butter oats. I think. Thursday seems so long ago!!! But I believe that’s what I had, and I believe it was delicious.
Bryan got his mixed with strawberries and pineapple, and topped with kiwi. Also a great combo! Love love fro-yo!
I packed up dinner to eat during the drive home.I had a cucumbers, baby spinach, red onions, and light veggie cream cheese on a multigrain thin. I also had a chocolate raspberry parfait, a 100 calorie pack of cinnamon roll thins, and the last of my barbecue popchips. The star of this meal was the cinnamon roll thins! So tastyyyy.
Friday’s breakfast was a bowl of cinnamon roll (overdoing it with the cinnamon stuff?) oatmeal.The flavor was good, but it may have been a stretch to call it “cinnamon roll”… “oatmeal smothered in cinnamon” would have been more appropriate.
I had packed up a lunch for Friday before we left because I have a VERY hard time controlling my portions when I’m home with my family. I had thin with turkey, baby spinach, sriracha, and feta and some baked chips. I had also packed a vanilla chobani but I don’t think it survived the car ride… it did not taste good! So I had to toss it L I also snuck a few bites of some of the other cold cuts and chips my family was enjoying.
The highlight of Friday was getting to meet my new baby cousin! My second cousin, Alyssa Marie, was born four weeks ago and I finally got to see her. There is nothing to not love about this child. She is amazing!This is a picture of my grandma with Alyssa, her first great-grandchild! I love this picture…Two gifts from God.
Another exciting part of my day…a trip to Trader Joe’s!
Next up was ahi tuna in a sauce called Island Soyaki.Bryan cooked this meal for my family and we could not get over how good it was! To die for!!!
Saturday started out with a gala apple. We were going to be tasting cakes for our wedding so I didn’t want to eat much! I wish I had taken pictures of the cakes we tried, but I felt a little weird about it. We decided on a simple, elegant cake with chocolate mousse and canoli fillings. Very excited!
Cake tasting got me in the mood for sweets so I had a pb&j sandwich for lunch with dark chocolate dreams and grape jelly. I also had some honey sesame sticks (TJ’s) which are PHENOM and leftover spinach salad. The salad wasn’t really doing it for me this time so I switched over to some raisin bran clusters.Loveddd these.
Saturday’s dinner began with a nice selection of appetizers…Roasted red pepper bruschetta, multigrain chips, a pepperoni and cheese roll, shrimp, and then some carrots and dressing that I added to the mix for a healthier alternative.
While my family had steak I enjoyed a Morningstar farms chipotle black bean burger. I also had creamed spinach, mushrooms, and onions. Their steaks looked good, but I did not feel like I was missing out at all. My burger was great! Dessert was a whole lot of TJ’s products…most covered in dark chocolate…all delicious…all unpictured. I eventually had an apple to fill me up so I’d stay away from the chocolate!
After church we visited the hotel our guests are staying at for the wedding where they gave us these amazing chocolate chip walnut cookies. Not a healthy choice, but totally worth it.
Lunch was sort of a repeat of dinner…another black bean burger topped with cheese, mushrooms, onions, and of course, sriracha and ketchup!
And finally, a fitness recap.
Monday 4/5 – Turbosculpt

Thursday 4/8 – 20 minute cardio workout, lifting (in the car!) with 5 lb weights
Friday & Saturday – Rest days. I brought home my sneakers, a sports bra, weights, Turbojam dvds…all so I would be prepared to workout. But there just wasn’t enough time to exercise!! Bummed. But I’ll get back on track J
I got a lot accomplished this weekend. I wish some of my accomplishments included working out and blogging, but hey, that’s life!
