The Other Shoe Dropped…

So it is official, I will be out of a full time job in February. I’ m not going to go into that many details (closing down) but I just wanted to let you guys know the situation. Ha I feel like the “Situation!” Damn Jersey Shore Overload ha

Eats And Workouts

Ayer for lunch I had more rice and beans! How tired are you of looking at this???? With 1/2 a Banana on the side. Many of you guys never tried rice and beans with a Banana…I am Dominican and this is how we do it ha. Give it a try =)


After work I rushed home (again) and made a quick dinner! Who says quick can’t be healthy??? Not me! lol. I threw together Brussels Sprouts, Mushrooms, Onions, Red Peppers, and Tofu in Oil, Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic, and Salt

I then added some PB, Sesame Teriyaki Sauce, Szechuan Hot Paste, and Slivered Almonds.

After din din, I rushed (sense a theme) to go train my client.

I could not WAIT to get home last night and just loaf on my couch and watch bad reality tv…((((((((fist pumping))))))))

I snacked on Protein Cookie Dough



This morning, I struggled to get up since I was up until midnight watching Jersey Shore but Missy and I made a pact via twitter that we would both do morning workouts even though we were up late. Today Jil Jil focused on abs and I burned 187 Calories in 32 minutes.

For breakfast I had the best bowl of Yogurt Messes EVER! Honey Chobani, with Raisins, 2 Oatmeal Raisin cookies, and PB! Heaven in my mouth! (that sounded dirty lol)


Hey Chobani or Oikos…maybe you can send me a free year supply of yogurt since I will be jobless! lol just putting it out there =)…I kid I kid

For Lunch I had….c’mon guess….just guess! you can do it. RICE AND BEANS


But this time I paired it with leftover Apple and Cranberry Dressing


I have so much work to do over here in the next couple of weeks…packing up, shredding etc…I should get to it.
