Running On Empty…

I know I have said this before but damn I am ti-ired! I slept for about 4 hours last night and have been chugging coffee all morning and I still feel like ass lol.

On Monday I went to Red Lobster with mi familia for Linner…I love this place even if some people call it “Ghetto Seafood” lol…

We started off with some Biscuits…


And to this day, they still make the BEST Piña Colada…”hello lova”


I then had a Garden Salad with French Dressing…


And for my Main Course, I had Crab-Crusted Tilapia; Fresh tilapia topped with a creamy blend of sweet crabmeat, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs, then baked crispy and golden. Served with fresh broccoli and Baked Potatoe. This was an amazing dish! Oh and I also enjoyed some of my sister’s leftovers! Thanks Jenn!



Ayer I woke up early and decided to make some Muffins…and I enjoyed one with Oikos Honey Yogurt in a Peanut Butter Jar with my usual cafe con leche


I studied for most of the day and then had a Green Monster before heading into the city for an Intensati class. This GM consisted of Spinach, 1/2 a Banana, P90X Orange Recovery Powder, Coffee, Splenda, and FF Milk


I had another amazing IntenSati class ayer! It was Patricia’s and it was fabulous! I thought I was at a house party, we even did some “fist pumping!” I was looking around for Snookie! ha

After class, Missy and I did our usual Whole Foods run and of course I got some sushi. This time I ordered Spicy Tuna Roll with Avocado and Brown Rice…I always tell them to make it EXTRA SPICY and they always make it mild…”I can handle the heat!”


I mentioned on Facebook ayer that I was making muffins and Missy “hinted” that she would love to have one so I obliged and brought some for dessert…and she LOVED IT!



This morning my alarm went off at 4:20 and I wanted to hit snooze but instead I sat up and started to read emails…anything to make my body wake up.

Don’t you guys love making new friends??? I met this girl a couple of weeks ago (she is doing the IntenSati Challenge too) and it turns out that she lives a couple of blocks away from me! Small world. We bumped into each other on the bus this morning and it was nice to chat with someone during our hour long commute into the city.

Today it was Natalia’s class! Have I mentioned how much I am going to miss this woman =/ sad panda. Today Natalia was talking about how this weekend she would talk to various people in her life that were doing great things and she was happy for them but still felt a little twinge of jealousy. And I could totally relate to this…I try NOT to compare myself to others but every so often that little voice creeps into my head. Do you ever feel this way?

After class, Jenny (new friend) and I headed back into Queens…we stopped off at Starbucks for some Iced coffee and a little more girl talk. I ordered a grande Skinny Vanilla Latte which I enjoyed with one of my muffins…

I then walked to Forest Park to see my niece and little sisters. They signed up for a Track and Field Summer Program. Before I show you the pictures…can I just say how hard it was to walk in the park and NOT run! I kept looking at all the people running and I just wanted to throw my purse on the ground and join them but instead I walked in the park for about 30 minutes.

Now to the pictures! lol

I am so proud of all three of them!

In about 2 weeks they will competing against 9 other city park teams! I can already hear the “Rocky” song! I am about to take them to the park myself and train them!!!! hahahahaha

After the park I ran some errands, did laundry, and cleaned up my apartment a little bit.

I was hungry again so I had Breakfast part deux lol which was Oikos Honey Yogurt with one of my muffins and cafe con leche…


I have to start getting ready in a little bit… the fabulous Angela invited me to her housewarming party tonight and I am meeting Missy Miss at 6ish…maybe I should take a nap before I go. Do you find that naps make you feel better or worse?

Oh and one quick thing! I want to thank the sweetest couple, AMANDA and ANDY! for an AMAZING BIRTHDAY GIFT!!!!!!!!
