Spring Chickens.

Hey sunshines, happy spring!! (Even though there are three days of snow in this week's forecast..!) Depsite the title, I am far from a spring chicken today! ha.  So, I'm just making a quick, pointless post because I probably won't be updating for a bit because I'm broken and gimped again!

That 'torn stomach muscle' from last month (and the last five years..) is back, but I know it is not a torn muscle and I'll be going back to the hospital/GI specialist tomorrow. I feel like an episode of stomach scans came out blood work was awesome..the doctor told me I was healthier than he was..I don't have any other what the cripes is wrong with me?!

I've been in bed since last night, wasn't able to go to Steve's roomate's birthday/St. Patty's party last night, no gym or fun times outside's just debilitating, frustrating and tear-inducing pain! And I hate being in bed all day..I like to be out and about doing stuff, especially when it's nice out :(
Ok, enough whining..

Instead, pictures!

Today's lunch. Egg white omelet with spinach, onions and feta. Why don't I make these more often? Adding feta to this made it off the charts delicious.

Fortunately I was able to get up and limp to the fresh produce place and then to the grocery store this afternoon and walk around like a hunched old lady grasping the carraige for dear life. Apples, grapefruit, oranges, strawberries, cinnamon almonds, fresh basil, lots of veggies, chicken boobs, egg whites and I grabbed some coconut milk for the first time. Can you believe I've never had it before?

Spaghetti squash with chicken, feta, delicioso marinara, baked tomatoes and green beans. Surprisingly filling dinner!

This is what I just filled my belly with for tonight's dinner. Basically a veggie plate with italian basil chiken, spinach and Annie's honey mustard dressing for happy dippins'!

I treated myself to a manicure yesterday afternoon. Haven't done that in years. I needed one so badly, my nails were a serious wreck from winter! It felt so good to treat myself, definitely need to do this more often!

Silly "progess" pics from after Friday's lazy cardio workout. Sorry for the serious face! Yeah I'm the douche-head taking pictures in the locker room.

Dessert from St. Patty's day! Home made frozen yogurt. I didn't forget about the ice cream recipes I promised, I just have one more I want to experiment with when I'm feeling up to it!! :) 

I'm off to lay around some more :( and hopefully experiment with coconut milk later! Any suggestions??
Along with the ice cream recipes, I've been letting Steve wear my BodyMedia for fun, so I'll post about that too..dude cranks out some serious freakin' calories!

Today's motivation;


  1. Ice cream recipes?! I am so excited! I hope you feel better soon girl! Looks like you got some good food stock up there!

    Awesome motivational picture, I always love them!

  2. OUCH that sounds torturous! I'm sorry!! =( Hope you are feeling better SOON and someone figures out what's going on!

  3. Ugh...hope you get better. I am just fed up with stomach issues!

    Can't wait to see what's Steve's bodymedia stats are. I have been wanting to see what my bf's calorie burn is. I am sure I will be mighty jealous. =P

  4. I always forget that a pound of carrots (as I just pick up a few bags) actually weighs 1 lbd. It's funny how much food weighs. Your progress pics are not silly; I can barely tell the difference in your progress and the motivation!

  5. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am so glad I found yours now...great workout motivation for sure. I will be adding you to my google reader! Your nails look awesome. That is something I haven't done in a looong time is a nice treat. :)

  6. That picture is definitely motivation for me! Geez! I want to be that strong. lol Don't know if it will ever happen but wish wish wish. :)

    Hope you feel better!!! Uuuuuug! I'm in the same situation with my hormones- no one can figure out WHY I don't have them. lol

    YAY to taking some "ME" time and having your nails done. They're so pretty! Don't you LOVE that. I just got mine done too and I can't stop looking at them. :)

  7. OMG! Are you ok? How ya feeling today? Next time you need a manicure buddy, I'm there:-)
    Hope you feel better soon! Looks like you got some goodies to munch on! We gotta get the guys in shape!! LOL!

  8. Hope you are feeling better love !!!!!

    Have a great day! xoxo
