From now on I want to focus on sharing with friends, family or whoever drops by, the life I'm living instead of the food I'm eating. Feel free to come say Hi and I'm sure as time allows I'll still be dropping by some of the blogs I always hung out at to say Hi. : )

So at the Healthy Living Summit this past weekend Kath said how that if it weren’t for Windows Live Writer she would never still be blogging. Hearing her talk about it perked my interest and I decided that I just had to give it a try. So right now I’m on my trial run. So far it’s been pretty easy to set up. I know I have a big weekend recap post to do but for now I’m just going to fill everyone in out what I ate today.
Since I had a barney butter sample to use I decided oatmeal was the perfect breakfast for me.
I really wasn’t planning on having a snack but something about my being at works means I’m hungry every 3 hours. I decided on my yogurt and some fiber one cereal
Lunch followed soon after. Since we just got back last night it wasn’t very well planned. I was just grabbing things out of the fridge this morning.
Carrots, Cauliflower & an Apple
The fact that I ate all that and still didn’t feel full wasn’t a good sign. So a couple hours later I knew I wasn’t going to make it the rest of the work day without something else to eat. When I went for my walk over my break I decided to swing by Sheetz to see what I could find. I ended up with a lite iced latte and some crackers. It hit the spot.
I’m already ready for dinner when I get home from work(at 3:30). Yeah, that’s a bad thing because that means come evening I’m starved when I really shouldn’t be thinking about food. Oh well, I decided to eat when I got home anyway. I even ate my snack too…
My pita bread omelet sandwich with pepper jack cheese and spinach plus some Trader Joe’s cinnamon almonds which I love!!!
And last but not lease a chocolate brownie Z-Bar
It was raining cats and dogs a little while ago and right now the sky looks a little iffy but I might attempt a walk. I’ll be back later with my weekend re-cap!!
Oh and aside from my trying to figure out resizing pictures(I need to reference my notes) I think I’m going to love Windows Live Writer!!!

To a few days off of work and a weekend away!!! : D
Cantaloupe & Cereal & Milk
Yellow Watermelon!! Yum!!
CousCous, black beans, lima beans, parmesan cheese & cilantro lime olive oil dressing... plus some red pepper flakes. I'm happy to annouce that this was a random idea that turned out very yummy!! I'm glad I get to eat it again for lunch tomorrow!!
Some other randam (and probably not necessarily needed) snacks were a nutrigrain bar, peach cobbler, piece of dark chocolate, cereal & raisins mixed with nuts... If only I could conquer my evening hunger!! I'm going to blame it on the 45 mins of tennis and 30 min walk but my snacks were way more calories than the 800 that I burned during exercise...

My real life sunflower garden!! It's so pretty buy they are all facing AWAY from my house so I don't really get to enjoy them unless I'm standing at the back of the yard. Ohhhh well....
This was my lunch on Sunday and I can't believe I ate a whole tomato!! First time ever cause I don't really like them...

Plus some almond butter(my last pack and I EXTREMELY sad about that) and some home made peach jelly
The final "yogurt mess" : ) Greek yogurt is quickly becoming my new favorite food. I love the stuff and wish it wasn't so expensive!!
And a frozen healthy choices dinner. This is what happens when I get tired of figuring out what to pack for lunch. Don't be surprised to see more of these in the near future.
My afternoon was just as long as my morning. I did get out for a 20 min walk. Normally after my walk I have a few minutes to spare and I like to sit at some picnic tables that are at work. The problem is people started throwing trash in a random blue barrel that was sitting around. This wasn't really a supposed to be used for trash which meant it never got emptied. It's been WEEKS and it starting to really smell BAD!!! I tried to move it but it was to heavy. I think because there was rain water in the bottom of it. So anyway, I emailed our maintenance guy and he got in touch with somebody and now the blue barrel is "supposedly" going to be thrown out. I hope so. I miss sitting outside in the afternoon for my little break away from it all!!
Cereal when I got home from work
This dreamy desserts! advertisement also came in the mail. I swear the whole world must know that I have the biggest sweet tooth ever. Do they have to tempt me??!!
Still hungry after my cereal and I knew Dad and I were going to play some tennis so I had two bites of leftover parleyed potatos from the fridge and a peanut butter banana : )
Dad and I got our 45 mins of tennis playing in. This is about the 3rd time we've gone this year and I think I'm already seeing some improvement. I'm hitting the ball a little more anyway. HAHA!! After tennis I took a short break and then headed out for a 45 min walk. My legs were very tired and I dreamed about calling home for someone to come pick me up. But I was strong and pushed through my tiredness!! : )
I decided to snack on some more Mary's Crackers, some pepper jack cheese and salsa, I had a second similar plate with just crackers and salad but no cheese.
And sugar free jello made it's apperence again. There's still two more left in the fridge and they'll be gone... Have I mentioned that I'm still very hungry?? I feel like I ate enough. I drank water but I'm hungry. I can't decide on another snack or not...
I tried to jump rope again tonight and my jump rope broke. This is my third one that I've broken. I guess I'll have to pick another one up at the store. Any suggestions?
Question of the day: What is your morning skin/makeup routine? Do you have "problem skin" and how do you keep blemished under control??

I started my day off with a yogurt "mess" a light & fit yogurt with an apple, fiber one and a tablespoon of almond butter
Lunch was a veggie mixture
This afternoon my boss stopped by my desk with a treat. A sugar free Popsicle. I didn't feel to bad eating it even though I think I probably eat to many things with artificial sweeteners in them. It's really hard to escape them...
Supper was bran flakes mixed with fiber one, some walnuts, some peaches and fat free milk. I LOVE cereal and eating it every day is something I plan on doing. I just can't eat it for breakfast because it doesn't keep me full long enough in the morning.
Tonight I actually sat down at the piano after I ate my cereal and played for 30 mins. It's a new goal of mine to play every day or at least every other. I normally only play on Sunday mornings at church. Only playing once a week is fine. It keeps me from getting rusty. But I'd like to be a little better than I am and I know that's never going to happen if I don't practice more.
Question of the day: Is there anything that you've gotten "rusty" at because you didn't practice as much as you should have?
