Sorry I have been MIA… I have been so busy and I just don’t know when I am going to be able to get back on here… I would just like to say… 24 hours until Twilight Eclipse comes out and I will be watching it 😀 I am so excited and just can’t wait!

Well everyone have a great night!!!

So tired today…

I didn’t even set my alarm today like I usually do. I just wanted to get as much sleep as possible because I was so exhausted from being in the sun all day and everything. I slept until like 11am and I am still tired but I got out of bed anyway and I will just have to go to bed early tonight so I can catch up on my sleep and feel rested for tomorrow. Anyway, for breakfast I made…

waffles with some yummy banana, raspberries, blueberries and sugar free syrup on them. Oh, so yummy! I love waffles. Then, after I was done eating I worked on some posts and before I knew it, it was time for lunch because I was hungry again. I had some…

pasta salad (leftovers from last night), with some tuna, and fat free mayo. On the side I had a fuji apple. I didn’t think I was going to like the tuna and mayo in the pasta but it was really good. I think I might have to try it with shredded chicken next time thought. I think I would like it even more with that.

Well, I am off. I will be back a little later.

Jimmy Buffet Concert tonight…

and it definitely was a crazy day. When I woke up this morning after I ate breakfast, I had to marinate (in a Caribbean jerk marinade) and cook the chicken for the wraps. After cooking the chicken before I could make the wraps I had to put the chicken in the fridge so that it could get cold. While I was cooking the chicken I was cooking the pasta and making the sauce for the pasta salad. After the pasta salad was done I threw that in a container and put it into the fridge as well so that it would be cold. While the chicken was getting cold I jumped in the shower and got 95% dressed (I had a tank top on) because I didn’t want to get anything on my shirt (that was going over the tank) while I was making the wraps.

I took the chicken out of the fridge and shredded it with a fork. I took 5 LaTortilla Factory multigrain wraps and divided it between the tortillas. Then I took some shredded lettuce and some reduced fat cheddar cheese and sprinkled it over everything and folded them up and wrapped them in foil. Once they were wrapped in foil I cut them down the middle and put them into a container so that they would stay sitting up right so that everything wouldn’t fall out of them. Sorry there aren’t any pictures, I was in a major rush to get everything ready to leave.

Once we left we went to where the limo bus was picking us up and packed everything in and we were off. It took us forever to get to were the concert was being held and to get in the parking lot but at least none of us had to drive. On the way there we all (16 of us) partied. I had like 6 jello shots that someone made. They were so good. I wasn’t going to have that many but it was a party. Other then them I didn’t drink anything else except some diet mt. dew that I brought and some water. We got pictures of everyone in the limo but I have to get them from whoever took them so I will post them in this post when I get them.

At around 8pm the concert started but we decided to stay in the parking lot and barbecue some while the line to get in died down. Here are a couple pictures from the concert…

It was a great concert as usually. Next year I’m sure will be just as fun if not more 😀

I finally…

watched Twilight for the first time and I thought it was really good 😀 I thought I wouldn’t like it but to my surprise I really did. I am really excited to watch New Moon and get ready for Eclipse to come out Wednesday at midnight. Once I get some time I am going to get the books and read them all. I was already looking on amazon.com to see how much I was going to have to spend on all 4 books. Now I wish I would have seen it sooner and jumped on the Twilight train before every movie already came out.

Anyway, let us backtrack to dinner. I made…

some whole grain pasta, marinara sauce, sliced red peppers, some left over onion, and some fat free mozzarella cheese. It was so yummy! I was going to put some mushrooms on the pasta also but I think they got bad in the fridge because they just didn’t smell like that mushroomy (my new word) smell.

Well, I’m off to bed now. Have a wonderful night!!

Ugh! Monday..

The weekend went by way to fast this week. Before I knew it it was over 😦 But there is always another weekend coming up so I guess it will be okay.. Since I went to bed last night I thought it would be a good idea to sleep in and they to get at least 7 hours of sleep. If I didn’t do that I think I would have been a little cranky… haha. Finally when I woke up I had breakfast…

a filling bowl of multi-grain cheerios with banana, raspberries, blueberries, and Silk brand almond milk poured over it. Yes, there are cheerios underneath all that fruit.. haha. When I looked at the bowl it only looked like fruit with almond milk. So yummy and filling. I have noticed that I get hungry really quick after eating breakfast most of the time. So I thought I would try and bulk it up a little bit and see what it would do. It definitely helped hold me over until lunch time and I didn’t have to have a snack in between. For lunch I made…

a regular it seems like because it is so quick and easy to whip up. a Morningstar Farms Chik’n Patty with, onion and pickles. On the side my homemade yummy fries 🙂 Well, now I am off to do a little work that I have been meaning to do but have been majorly procrastinating on. I will be back in a little while. Have a wonderful day!!!

Spent the day with…

My Dad! Of course 😀 We decided to stay in and just make something at home for lunch. We couldn’t think of anything that we wanted at the time. So I made…

a shredded chicken wrap with some mayo, grapes, onion, slivered almonds, and some black pepper. On the side i have a juicy peach and half of a Fuji apple. I was so filling and so good. Around 7pm we went to my grandma’s house because my dad wanted to go see her new puppy. The puppy was a lot more spunky then she was when I was over there last week. We stayed there for a couple hours and on the way home we were trying to figure out something to getting for dinner. Everything we thought of was already closed because everything closes so early on Sundays. I suggested that we just run in the grocery store and get some things to make at home and then we can watch one of the movies that we rented. So we went to the store and brought home…

a tuscan style chicken flatbread pizza. My mom and I shared it and it was rather filling and not horrible in calories. While we ate we watched Shutter Island. It was kind of creepy in some parts, and definitely twisty. Well, I’m off to bed. Night!!

Well today was weigh in…

It went okay but not the greatest. I lost 0.3 pounds which isn’t bad because I still lost but I wish it would have been more. It could be getting to be that TOM so that could be the reason I didn’t lose that much. Oh well, it happens just move on and continue doing what I am doing 🙂

After I weighed myself I was starving so I had…

a bowl of multi-grain and chocolate cheerios, Silk almond milk, and some yummy raspberries. I love the raspberries in this cereal, so good! Now I am watching the Tigers baseball game with my dad and we’re trying to think of something to have for lunch. I will be back a little later with more. Have a wonderful Sunday, and Happy Father’s Day Daddy! I love you!!! 😀
