Going To Kick Him….

Remind me to never tell my coworker anything! I am leaving work early today to go to the Gym’s Holiday Lunch and I told my 9-5 Jefe that I had an appt…So all of a sudden this morning he goes “oh you are leaving early right? for the Christmas Party” I never mentioned it to him but DID tell my coworker and I guess he told him…I am going to KICK him when he comes in. So now my jefe is asking me what I am wearing to the party (he is blind). Note to Self: Kick Tiago when he walks in!

On a bright side…I get to leave around 12:30ish to go to the Lunch and then going to pick up lil lady from school and bringing over to my place but first we need to make a stop to Subway so she can get a sammie “that’s healthy titi” The power of the Biggest Loser ha

Eats and Workouts

Ayer for lunch I had leftovers from the Jardin de China; Steak with Onions, Rice, and Red Beans


For dinner I was craving veggies! I had Roasted Brussels Sprouts with EVOO, Garlic, and Salt. 1/2 a cup of Spanish Style Roman Beans with Onions and Peppers. I paired it with Cranberry and Apple Dressing and I took Joanne’s advice and threw in a splash of Orange Juice and Cinnamon….YUUUUUMS! Thanks chickie!


I also had 2 servings of “Cookie Dough”


And since Mo Diva said that she loves my honesty…I guess I should also tell ya’ll that I snacked on a bag of Tollhouse chips while hanging out with “Dante” and texting Mo lol (I can’t wait for Sunday)



This morning I woke up DARK and Early lol and did Jillian’s No More Trouble Zones and burned 354 Calories. Third day of my challenge is going strong!

For Breakfast I had Chobani Peach Yogurt with PB and my usual coffee
