Gettin’ There

Well, second test down and two more to go. It’s always so nice after finishing a class because you get to get rid of ALL of the old STUFF!! Woo hoo!

This afternoon I went to Target to kill some time. I chose Target because they usually have a pretty good magazine section and I really wanted to get the new copy of Clean Eating Magazine. I LOVE this magazine and especially love Tosca Reno’s Clean Eating books. They didn’t have it which was a bummer but I did find a cute little white shirt on sale for $6.99. I couldn’t resist.

I went to gas up my car (whom I call Vanna White…it’s a white car, and it’s purty) after because I didn’t think I would get a chance before Wednesday and I was almost on empty. I was so happy that it only cost $20!  Much better than the $40 it was costing me not too long ago. Even though gas prices are much lower it’s still sad that our economy is less than stellar (understatement of the year). It has been interesting to be taking Finance this past semester because we got to do a lot of research on the market and the bail out plan. My major is Finance and I find all of that stuff so interesting…Just me?

I brought out the Magic Bullet when I got back around 4:00pm. This combo was with Peach Kefir, half of a cold naner (as my friend Polly calls em’!), and about a cup of frozen strawberries that I am trying to finish before Wednesday…I may have to take them home in a cooler.

It was delish. I just love a smoothie! That Magic Bullet has been a lifesaver. And a pretty good deal too since we got it at Bed Bath and Beyond. Do you guys get those 20% off coupons in the mail? You know they never expire! They have an expiration date but they will still take them. AND you can use one for every item you buy. That’s just the best and made the MB worth the mulah.

I stopped at Mother Earth Market again on my outing this afternoon because I knew they would have my Clean Eating magazine and I wanted to get something from their hot bar for dinner. I got Israeli Couscous with Black Beans and Roasted Veggies. My meal was only $3.70 ($6.99/lb). I was pretty excited since dinner out is usually more like $7-$10. I put a little bit of Greek Yogurt on top of the bean/couscous mixture a few bites in and it was delicious. I had never had this kind of couscous before and I loved both the taste and texture.

Hope you had a great evening. I will be resting tonight and waking up to do it all over again tomorrow. Luckily my Dad will be in town for dinner though. He travels often for work and pass through Gainesville often. He will be in town tomorrow night AND it’s his birthday so we will get to celebrate together!

Good Night!

My appetite is here and in FULL force. This past weekend, my eating times were strange and I never felt very hungry. I’m glad to report that my appetite is back in action.

I woke up in the middle of the night (4 am to be exact) absolutely STARVING! It was a little distracting but I managed to fall back asleep until 7am. For breakfast I had oats in hopes (rhyme?) that it would hold me over until lunch. Typically it does. But NOO.

A mere 2.5 hours later…Peach Kefir smoothie with half a banana and frozen mango.

AND…half an Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel English Muffin with a thin layer of PB.

This should hold me over for a late lunch.
