330 Calorie Breakfast

Breakfast this morning consisted of a cup of mixed berries (saved for snack later), 1 slice whole wheat toast, 1 egg, 2 slices turkey bacon and 1 baby belle cheese. Not bad for a filling 330 calorie breakfast.

I’m on the fence about things like turkey bacon, there is a part of me that [...]

Berry Toast

This is my healthy alternative to fast food. I like to trick myself into thinking that eating healthier requires a lot of time, energy, effort and planning. And while sometimes it does, that isn’t always the case.

This breakfast was thrown together in just a couple of minutes and I have a feeling it’s [...]

Right Now

Written Last Night:

I want to eat something. Not because I’m hungry, but because I feel like I deserve it. Because I’m tired and I have a few busy days ahead of me. Because I’m worried about getting it all done. Because I’ve been so good eating-wise.

Instead, I’m going to drink a glass of [...]

My Attitude Adjustment

rotisserie chicken salad with brown rice

I’m finding that the best way to motivate myself and get stuff done is by changing my attitude. This isn’t easy. I’m a firm believer that if I don’t like something, I need to change it and if I can’t change it, I need to change how I [...]

My Favorite (Filling) Breakfast

Earth shattering, right? These breakfast burritos only have about 250-300 calories and they keep me full for hours! Just a scrambled egg with a little cheese and vegetables on a whole wheat wrap. So good! I found these wraps at the Fresh Market awhile ago and have been avoiding them because whole wheat wraps [...]

Work, Work, Work it Out

My workout this morning is brought to you by my love for cheesy pop music! This is the first workout that I’ve done in way too long that I was actually excited to do. It hit all of my workout requirements: 1) no watching time/countdowns/clocks etc. 2) [...]

Cultivating a Habit

The first thing I did this morning was put on my exercise clothes and start this workout that I mentioned yesterday. I’m determined to make morning exercise a habit. Only because I find it very hard to exercise in the evenings. Who I am kidding? I find it hard to exercise at all times, [...]

Internet Workout

I had a very fun and relaxing weekend and I hope you did too!

I made another Nicoise salad Friday evening and then we went out for drinks after, Saturday I made pancakes, went to the farmer’s market, made vegetable korma and practiced the piano, Sunday we went to the lake/beach and then stopped [...]

Weekend Favorites

This minty tea cooler from Creature Comforts. Good thing we’ve got lots of mint growing up around the house!

This Nars Beach Lover set. I’ve been feeling the call of the ocean lately. This could help ease the pain of the ocean being five hours [...]


Today is our third anniversary, which means lots of extra hugs and Indian food. I’m not overly comfortable sharing my feelings about my husband on the internet of all places, but what I will say is that he is the best husband and partner for me. There are never days that go by that [...]
