My Fabulous baby boy turns 15 years old today!!!!!! I have had Koko Loco since he was 2 months old so you can only imagine how close we are. I love this boy =)

This picture was Halloween 06

Eats and Workouts

Ayer for Lunch I ordered a Caesar Salad with no Croutons, Dressing on the side and added Sundried Tomatoes, Shaved Parm, and 4 Fried Shrimp

I had a very stressful day at work ayer (Karma for coming in late to workout) and all I wanted to do when I got home was pop in my Garden State CD and do some Yoga (I burned 170 calories in 40 minutes). If you guys are looking for a mellow CD I totally recommend this.

For din-din I had WW Pasta mixed with Sauteed Mushrooms, Onion, and Red Pepper in a PB, Sesame Teriyaki, and Chili Bean Paste Sauce

Quick question: you guys know I switched over to Jif Natural PB, is it normal for it to be watery when you first open it? It says "no need to stir" on the jar so I assumed it would always be smooth when I open it and it has been until ayer when I opened this new jar. It does state in the back "minimal oil separation is natural" so I guess this is normal.

For Dessert I had an Alfajor Cookie

This morning I woke up pretty early and had an amazing workout...sweat was dripping everywhere lol. I warmed up with 10 minutes of Jillian's Kickboxing DVD and then I did her No More Trouble Zone DVD and burned 500 Calories.
For Breakfast I had Kashi Oatmeal, with Jif PB, and a Banana with my usual coffee. It has been about a week since I had a bowl of oats (I have been neglecting it since I discovered Pumpkin Pancakes) and I forgot how delish this combination is.

I think today is going to be another hectic day over here so I should get to it...have a great one!


  1. Hope todAy is a little less stressful! Happy bday kolo loco!!

  2. Happy Birthday KoKo!!

    I think it is natural to have a little bit of settling on natural peanut butter!!

  3. It's definitely natural with the whole peanut butter thing. The husband loves smucker's natural pb and even though it says no stir, you have to stir it at least once.

    Happy birthday to KoKo-he's so adorable!

  4. That's totally normal. I'm so glad you switched to Natural, it's so much better for you :)

    Happy Birthday to Koko!!

  5. Yep, it's normal! It happens otmost peanut butters, even the non-natural ones, if they sit for a while.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Garden state CD. I purchased it right after seeing the movie about two years ago. I still listen to it quite often, not yet sick of it!

  6. Phew, thank God =) I thought I had funky pb lol...

    Gina, lol I also got it right after seeing the movie. I think it is one of the best soundtracks EVER. I don't get tired of hearing it, even transferred over to my itouch to listen to it while driving lol

  7. Aw happy birthday to Koko! So cute!

    I usually have the same issue with pb so I think it is pretty normal!

  8. Happy birthday, Koko!!! Yeah, my natural pb does that (like everyone elses it seems). We're busy chicas...SAVE US SOMEONE!!

  9. Your dog is too cute. A salad with shrimp sounds so good right now!

  10. the oil is normal. if its a pool of oil i would spill it out but a little bit is natural. usually the natural stuff ground fresh needs to be stirred because POOLS of oil form making stirring NECESSARY.

    Happy Birthday KOKO

  11. Your post made me want sundried tomatoes....and Oatmeal :-)

    Thanks it was a loooong morning of traveling!

  12. Oh and your dog is SO cute!!!

  13. garden state soundtrack is great mellow music! i agree

  14. Aw, happy birthday to your dog! My dog is getting up there as well, and soon turning 10!

  15. Happy Birthday KoKo Loco!

    Wow, you take great care of your baby, that is why he is here today!

    God Bless

  16. Haha I know! If L&O is on I have trouble leaving the house ;-)

  17. Happy happy b-day!!!
    Yikes, idk abt the water :(

  18. Happy b'day to your little boy! I feel the same way about my kitty .. hez my baby! Btw, where did u get that Alfajor cookie?? I've been wanting to get my hands on that stuff .. yummmmmmmmmm.

  19. yes the oily layer is totally normal on all 'all natural' pb's and almond butters, no worries!!

    happy birthday to koko wow what a cutie!!
