True Love

A few weeks ago when I was in the grocery store, I found these…

… And it’s been true love ever since!

That’s from last night, but don’t worry! It was after dinner! (Chicken breast, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and a baked sweet potato)


This morning when my alarm went off, I practically bounced out of bed. This was a serious shocker to me because normally in the mornings, I’m a little bit like this…

Since I was up and ready earlier than usual, I had enough time to enjoy coffee while reading some morning blog posts. Usually I’m running out the door with my coffee in a travel mug. It was a nice change and made for a less stressful morning. 🙂

Breakfast this morning was another yogurt bowl of plain Chobani, vanilla, splenda, cinnamon, chopped apple, and peanut butter.

I was productive and packed my lunch last night so that I could grab it before work this morning. It was a good one!

Spinach, chicken, and egg salad with hummus for “dressing.” I also had one of Yoplait’s new strawberry greek yogurts. Ehh, it was okay. I love Chobani, Oikos, and Fage SO much more!



3 mile run on the treadmill after work. Man it feels so good to sweat after a long day! Bring on those endorphins!

Protein shake to recover… enjoyed outside with my doggies. 🙂 This also doubles as my afternoon snack because after one of these, I’m never hungry for anything else.


I’m on my own tonight for dinner because Chad’s gone to a meeting, so you know I’ll be eating something random. 😉

Hope you all had a terrific Tuesday!
