Back to Basics…

Hello loves! I hope everyone is having a great day and had a even better weekend.

My weekend consisted of volunteering, studying, and working out =) ohhhh and fabulous eats! Here are some of the Highlights of my Eats…



My mom was nice enough to make some for me without meat… DSCN9764

I also enjoyed a seafood soup that my dad’s wife made…I had a fever over the weekend so this totally hit the spot


Cooler temperature means one thing in my house…BAKING! I made Protein Cinnamon Muffins which I enjoyed with Peanut butter…


But even cooler temperatures can’t keep me away from my precious Green Monsters..


But I had to warm up with Campbell’s V8 Butternut Squash Soup


Ayer I went to the park and had a fabulous jog despite the fact that it was raining…I need to invest in a rain jacket for my runs…do ya’ll have any recommendations???


This morning I woke up a little sluggish so I decided to have breakfast before working out. I enjoyed a fabulous bowl of Oat Bran with Blueberries and Jif Natural Peanut Butter and my usual Cafe con Leche…

After I digested and watched the Wendy William Show, I started my workout…first I did Turbo Fire 55 EZ and then did Core 20. It was a sweaty mess and I enjoyed every minute of it.

For lunch I made one of my black bean burgers with Trader Joe’s Swiss Cheese, Ketchup, Lettuce, and Tomato in a Arnold Thin with a side of Alexia Spicy Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries with Ketchup.


Well that is all for today…I am off to catch up on your blogs! I have missed you all VERY MUCH!



  1. yay! you're back!!!! :) :) I've missed you posting.

  2. Yum I am craving a burger and sweet potato fries now! Might have to make that for dinner! See ya sooooon!

  3. I hope you're feeling better! The husband has had a little something on and off for the past few weeks, but never actually got sick. Hopefully, you won't either!

    Oh and Unless it's below 60 I wouldn't recommend running in a jacket in the rain. It gets to be too hot really fast. Although there are some super light weight raining ones on the market. I just never invested in one, cause I have to draw the line somewhere. =)

  4. Hey girl! Love the new header.
    I want that burger :)

  12. Oooh! Sweet potato fries! I was just thinking about some fall foods I need to pick up :) Glad you enjoyed the weekend!

  15. You sure do like your ketchup! Hope you are feeling better - soup always makes me feel good!

  16. Nice eats. The soup looks good and whatever that first thing pictured is looks good too. So nice when people make things without meat. I like when people do that for me, but I do not expect it.

  17. My mom watching the Wendy William's show. She loves it. I'll be honest, I think she's abnoxious (spelling??). But hey, that's probably why people love her! My mom watches it when she works out.

    Glad you had a delicious weekend (sorry to hear you had a fever!). I can't wait for my first bite of butter squash soup. Yum! And, I love TJ's swiss cheese. I buy the reduced fat one alllll the time.
