I don’t have any pictures of my breakfast or lunch yesterday.  Oops!  But I only ate a blueberry muffin and a steak & cheese.  Nothing crazy! My mom came to visit me yesterday so I spent the afternoon with her.  We enjoyed walking around Boston, even with the gale force winds blowing sand in our […]

Muve to the Gruve

Another bowl of Peanut Butter Puffins cereal with Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter.  Simple, filling, and it tastes SO good. Preppy work attire and some new ballet flats from the GAP.  Plus I think I deserve extra credit because it’s been a long time since I’ve bothered to straighten my hair for work. I order […]

Unpacking pains

After an uneventful plane ride home from Baltimore with Ali and Julie, I faced my worst nightmare: Unpacking!  (Borrowed this gorgeous airport shot from Ali!  Picnic lunch, yay!) I may have lost the battle, but Unpacking isn’t going to win the war.  I swear I’m going to put everything away when I get home from […]

Runners Raffle

Patricia from Run Foodie Run is hosting a raffle to win a Garmin Forerunner 305!  Enter from March 5-April for your chance to win! I had a bowl of Kashi cereal for breakfast. It didn’t keep my full for very long.  After an hour at work, I started munching on some Cinnamon flavored Food Should […]

Berries Galore

I loved having lots of fresh fruit leftover from dessert yesterday.  I added blueberries and strawberries to an otherwise boring bowl of cereal. Plus ate more fruit when I got to work. I made a salad with the only leftover piece of BBQ chicken from yesterday’s lunch.  Plus I used greens, carrots, red peppers, grape […]

Mighty Bites

I had a bowl of Mighty Bites for breakfast.  This is Jared’s favorite breakfast cereal.  Since I’m following a relaxed vegetarian diet for my Challenge, milk and milk products are ok.  Have patience with me please.  😕 Later today, I’m going to be researching how animals benefit from a person’s vegetarian diet.  This will include […]

Wrap It Up

Jared told me that I can shout it from the rooftops:  The month of January is over and I didn’t use my credit card.  Woohoo, no spending money on pointless shopping and unessential items.  It was a challenge and Jared bet that I wouldn’t make it.  But we’re both happy I proved him wrong. We’re […]


I was feeling pretty snackie last night.  I had 1/2 of wheat bagel with homemade veggie cream cheese and a small bowl of cucumbers with French dressing. It seemed impossible to fill myself up so I had a handful of Triscuits and cheese. I also got a little stir crazy.  So while watching the Biggest […]

If it Ain’t Broken

Then Don’t Fix It! My soup and grilled cheese was so tasty that I knew it would be on the menu again today.  I wasn’t in the mood to mess with a good thing! But first, there was breakfast… I had a bowl of Special K with Red Berries. I would love to follow the […]

Boring Eats

I had a bowl of Raisin Bran before I left for work.  I probably should’ve poured a mug of coffee before I left but I was running short on time.  I decided I’d power through the day instead.  I’m a little bit sleepy! I snacked on a Clemintine.  This is an especially good box since […]
