One more day……

Thursday, I’m happy to see you because your brother FRIDAY comes right behind you!   I didn’t run yesterday because…well…because I didn’t want to! I was tired and I am learning to listen to my body more often. I am also learning to not beat myself up for NOT working out.  It’s just a waste of time to constantly feed yourself with negative ideas. BTW…I’m still working on that about my BODY image and learning to love me! ⚠️ #selfESTEEM #underCONSTRUCTION ⚠️

I was tired this morning but I realized that I haven’t been taking iron tablet like I am supposed to! #badPA.  I restated just this morning.😃

Since the beginning of the year , I have made some dietary changes.  It has taken some time but I am a BREAKFAST lover!!! I found a new cereal last weekend in Orlando… 

Remember THIS??? LOVE this cereal!!


When I got home to Publix, I practically sprinted to the cereal aisle.  I was so sad that they didn’t have it!😢. I DID find a substitute that made up for it… 


I have a serving size (3/4 cup) with blueberries and Almond milk.  (Sorry no pictures because it’s usually eaten early,around 4:20 am AND I eat it so fast!!!).  

My lunch was great and really look forward to that salad. I’m still not bored with it yet!   


What’s in it, you asked? 

  • Mixed greens – baby spinach, kale, and radicchio
  • Romaine lettuce 
  • 1/2 of a cucumber 
  • Sliced black olives 
  • 1/2 can of Southwestern corn mix – corn, black beans, onions, and red peppers
  • Ken’s Lite Balsalmic Vinagrette (2 tablespoons)
  • Fried onions !!!!

    Finished product!


This is pretty much what I eat every day!!! Those onions fill my “chip” void! “Hi, I’m Angie and I LOVE chips!!!!“. This fills me UP!!!!

Work was a blur….a multitude of sick people! I mean, it IS what I do….! A few other complaints from patients to switch it up…then the day is over. I was really looking forward to my run today. My partner was having a tooth extracted, so understandly, she couldn’t join me! I wanted to try something different while running…. 


Instead of MUSIC, I listened to my Audiobook from Audible. I really didn’t think I was going to like it, but I DID!  I like how I really didn’t think so much. I just ran….and listened. It was nice! You should try it……  This book is GREAT. If you don’t like audiobooks, get it the traditional way. It is weird and odd….and I love it! 

Hubby, home from out of town, made one of my favorites for dinner….Picadillo

He makes a lighter version with ground chicken (Picadillo de Pollo) instead of ground beef. This is seasoned with Sofrito, minced garlic and the usual suspects of  seasoning.   It is served over white rice and we always top it off with some sliced avocado. It’s so easy to make (says the lady who DOESN’T cook!) and so EASY to eat. It’s my comfort food. Oh…..and my other favorite- 

 TOSTONES (fried plantains) #nuffSAID

I’m a lucky gal because hubs does ALL the cooking! And it is GOOD!!!! 

Glad the day is done.  Here I sit and wait for Friday, planning if I will try to squeeze one more run in!


Your thoughts on Kashi cereals?

    #underconstruction. Hah! I LOVE it! I think I’m gonna have to steal that one.

    Your salad looks so yummy! I can’t believe I haven’t thought to add that mixed corn medley to mine. And, if we eat chips while running in place can we justify it then?! I think so!

    It’s no nice to hear that you don’t cook. Here I was thinking there was something wrong with me. Hah!!

    And, here’s to getting Cinderella-drunk this weekend! Cheers! 🙂
