A Peek Into My World & My Journey To Find Healthy Success

So Cold!

I am just so ready for winter to be over with right about now.  I just can’t stand the cold weather anymore.  The best thing to do though when it is cold out is to make a yummy bowl of soup.  And that is exactly what I did =)

The only thing that I did different was I used no yolk noddles instead of egg noodles because that is what I had on hand but it was still really good and so easy.  I will definitely be making it again.  If you would like to try out this recipe then click here.  Oh, another thing that I left out was the flat-leaf parley at the end because I just didn’t have any but I didn’t really make a difference.  Come to think of it now, I did have some dry parley but I just didn’t think about it.  Well, I am off to read a little bit and then go to sleep.  Goodnight all!

Question:  Do you like to cook?  What are some of your favorite recipes?


Hope everyone is having a…

wonderful Saturday. To start I had breakfast. I made…

A wrap consisting a ½ cup of Egg beaters with some onion, a little shredded cheddar cheese, and a tablespoon of taco sauce. For some reason I was like overly hungry today and I was a little full from my breakfast but not enough. I had a little snack like an hour later. My snack was…

a bagel with cream cheese. It really hit the spot and held me over until lunch time…

I had a peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich and some chocolate goldfish. I was going to have an apple but it seemed a little mushy so I had pineapple instead. Then after I ate I did some work and then before I knew it, it was dinner time. I had…

A wrap with some shredded chicken with onion, fat free mayo, and a little pepper. On the side I had some tomato soup and some honey wheat pretzels. After dinner I jumped in the shower and went to the grocery store. I have to get fruit. I ran out and I was going crazy. I also had to rent a couple movies from redbox. I had to get both Twilight movies because I am going to see the new one at midnight on June 30th and I want to be able to know what is going on in it. I also got the first Sex and the City movie because I haven’t seen it and I would like to see the second one with it comes out on dvd also.

Well, I’m off, have a wonderful night.


Major storm on the way…

so I am going to have to make this one fast. For lunch I made…

a burrito with some leftover rice, re-fried beans, salsa, and a little cheese. Also I had some chicken noodle soup. There is some many odds and ends in this house I am trying to use some of the things up. I am going to have to go grocery shopping soon. I’m running out of fruit and veggies so shopping mandatory very soon.

For dinner I made…

a morningstar farms hot & spicy sausage pattie with polenta. On the side I had some cannelinni beans, onion, corn and tomatoes with parmesan sprinkled over everything, and a corn muffin with a little hummus on it. So yummy!

Well, I am off to watch the rest of Transformers and do some work. I’ll be back tomorrow 😀


I guess I was wrong!

I guess yesterday it just felt like a food fail. I woke up this morning and totally expecting to see a gain on the scale this morning (weigh in day) but I was so wrong and very excited. I lost another 1.5 pounds, which brings my total to 21 pounds in 14 weeks. I think that is amazing really. I am so excited for next week now.

Anyway, so far today I haven’t ate anything at all. I am going to have to find something sooner or later even though I am not going to be able to taste it at all. My nose is even more stuffed up then yesterday, but at least I don’t have the sinus headache right now. My dad just went to the store to get me some better medicine because this stuff I bought yesterday worked for like 2 minutes. I ended up only getting like 6 hours of sleep and that was all sitting up because once I would lay down I couldn’t breath. Hopefully when I get the new medicine it actually works because I can’t go another night sitting up to sleep.

Well, I am going to attempt to eat some soup.

I don’t want anything that will scratch my throat even more. I can’t taste anything anyway so hopefully it fills me up a little and then later I can try to eat something more yummy when I see if the medicine works. I added some parmesan goldfish crackers that I put in the soup so they would get soft.

Throughout the day I took several naps. I was just so tired. At some point I had lunch. I didn’t really want to take the time to cook anything so I just threw something together.

I had an everything bagel thin with cream cheese, a banana with some pudding, and grapes. From what I could taste it was yummy.. haha.

Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!! 😀
