whoop whoop!

Day is nearly over, and I am posting for the first time. What up, what up?

I left my camera cord at home, so that excuses my lack of lunchtime post. I have not quite gotten all my ducks in a row with the new camera and all.

So anyway this morning I was a bit lazy, due to not going to bed until 1 am, and I chose to sleep in a bit instead of getting in my regular morning sweat fest. I did not get up until 6:45 and enjoyed a morning of leisure. Or not. More like a quick blow dry, makeup application, clothes toss and vita mix whirlin’.


Vita mix product.

  • spinach
  • cocoa
  • vanilla whey protein
  • dcd
  • frozen banana
  • soy milk
  • ice

It may or may not have had a bit too much cocoa powder. I downed it like a champ anyway.

And then like Tigger, I bounced over to work.

Actually I drove, but despite it being Monday, I was feeling a little bouncy. Perhaps it was all the nice comments I received regarding my baptism. Thanks guys, ya’ll are really sweet. I appreciated the congrats, not that I posted it for that or anything. I like to keep my blog real, and that was what was a happenin’ in my life yesterday, so I posted on it.

Anyway, your comments were sweet, and I may have teared up a bit reading some of them, but I don’t cry.

So on to lunch.

Hugh Jass galore.


  • Curly lettuce
  • baby spinach
  • 1/2 a mango
  • 3 large strawberries
  • and there may have been a whole avocado in there. I’ll never tell.


Yes that is a mixing bowl. Yes I drew odd glances and had a few comments thrown my way, even though by now my co-workers are used to my eating habits.


green, green and some red.

The mango part seems to be hiding, but trust me it was there. And so delicious.

Greenery makes me productive, I do believe, cause after consuming that mixing bowl, I got a lot of stuff done. Given that I have a short week, that is a good thing.

Not a good thing:


This was supposed to be my snack. The rest of mango + a kiwi.

One bite out of Mr. Kiwi and if I were prone to projectile vomit, it would have been in the next room. Ever had a rotten kiwi? It ferments. Or as far as I could tell it did. Better believe he hit the trash can faster than you can say BLECH!!!

The mango was still yummy. But unfulfilling.

So I sliced up 3 more strawberries.


Yummy as well, but I was still not satisfied.

I began rummaging through cabinets in valiant search of something to satisfy this rumbly tummy.


I ate that.

Ummm, I also stopped trying after it. I realized that I was probably not going to find anything to satisfy me, especially if I was stooping to such lengths as to eat dried beef.

So that was my snack; the full uncondensed version.

Due to my general lack of getting to bed last evening, I had a little one on one time with Jillian when I got home. Level 3 of the shred. I cried. Not really, but I sweated buckets, and finished up with a 20 minute Gentle Hatha Yoga download. Yoga makes me happy.

So dinner. Originally I was thinking breakfast for dinner. More specifically oatmeal or pancakes.

I should have stuck with that idea, but once I was sweaty that was no longer appealing.


Enter Stuffed Patty Pan squash.


He has a delicious filling of:

  • eggplant
  • cherry tomatoes
  • spinach
  • onion
  • cheese

Unfortunately he himself is not quite as tasty.


But really, he should be. He looks so pretty sitting there.

I just ate the filling. If anyone has a delicious patty pan squash recipe, send it over. Otherwise just make this filling and eat it. That’s what I do.

Instead of looking for a dinner alternative I settled for convenience.


The bottom of the fro-yo carton and a bit of dcd. It makes me happy, plus I needed the protein. Or so I told myself.

As if that were not enough, I added some Newman O’s to the mix.


Two chocolatey and decadent bits of glory.

Mama D. made brownies.


I sampled a crumble and flexed my muscles.


Apparently my skin matches the kitchen cabinets. Don’t know when that happened.

Now I am taking my chocoholic self somewhere, even it is just to read blogs. This insanity has to stop.
