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

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 😀

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!!

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.

Work work work…

At lunch time I made…

a chicken wrap with almonds and some sweet potato fries (sorry the picture is a little blurry). well, they were a little soft to be fries but with a little cinnamon sprinkled on them and they were great! After I ate lunch I work on some things and before I knew it it was dinner time…

I made some brown rice with some crushed tomatoes, onion, and red pepper flakes. I also had some yellow pepper with some hummus. Yummy! I love hummus. I had store-bought today but I would like to make my own once the stuff I have is gone.

Well, I am getting tired and I am planning on going for a bike ride tomorrow. We will see how the weather is tomorrow though.

Non-stop day…

Sorry it took me so long to get this post up. I felt like I was going non-stop today since I woke up at 8am. Right when I woke up I jumped in the shower, got dressed, grabbed a Fiber One Oats & Strawberry granola bar and was out the door. Off to the mall again, Semi-annual sale at Victoria’s Secret 😀 My mom came along with me and once we got there everyone was going crazy trying to get the good stuff. We were there for around 2 hours and then we decided to grab some lunch around 11am.

We went to P.F. Chang’s and had…

lettuce wraps, sichuan-style asparagus, and brown rice. It was so good as usual. Then we went to Juicy Couture and I bought a purse and wallet. Then we ended up at Express and my mom bought a jacket. After we went to another mall because my mom couldn’t find the tank top the she was looking for. Once we got there we ended up going to Victoria’s Secret again and I bought some workout clothes that I am in desperate need of.

On the way home I stopped at the YMCA to get my card for the gym and looked around a little bit. After I got home I decided to go out again and go visit my grandma and her new puppy that she just brought home today. It was so cute. She was a little spunky puppy once she had a little nap. All the excitement that she had throughout the day wore her right out. She was laying on my grandma’s lap and she just couldn’t keep her little eye open when I got there. I stayed there for a few hours and then came home and had…

a chicken wrap, apple, and some pringles for dinner. I could have probably did without half of the chips but I was starving.

Now I am off to watch some tv and pass out. I am exhausted. Have a wonderful night!! 😀
