the answer is no.

in meals,moves

sigh, i guess i better not go with that plan.  too bad.


yesterday’s lunch was a repeat of monday’s.  wrap + meatloaf + sprouts + LCL + lettuce along with a veggie plate+hummus (naturally)

i DID have a little something different for lunch yesterday though..

mi madre!

my mom is the cutest ever. i can’t wait to be exactly like her in thirty years :)

post workout and pre dinner i munched on a couple items thanks to danica:

  • TJ’s bbq pop chips
  • TJ’s PB & A nut mix
  • TJ’s PB filled pretzels

sooo.. yesterday was special-ish.  two years ago yesterday was the first day i ever went to marshall’s house.  i remember it so vividly.  i got all cute and ready and whatnot, i even shaved my legs *gasp* and i drove to his house ultra nervous.. even though marshall and i had worked together for 2 years prior to this, we had never actually hung out.. and 2 days before june 9, 2007 we went on a date to a movie and we both were too lame to hold each othr’s hand even though we both wanted to. haha. hahaha. so anyway two years ago on the way to his house i was constantly reapplying my lip gloss on the 30 minute drive to his place and wondering what we would do and if his friends would like me and, and, and.. when i got there his house was clean. his room was SPOTLESS. i remember it well. i even remember what i was wearing.oh and marshall’s face was NOT hairy at all. and i knocked on his door.

then i compare it to last night as i drove to his house.. i had worked out and then showered, threw my hair in a ponytail, no makeup, wore my VS pj pants and a volcom tshirt and flip flops to his house. and i got there and of course his whole house, especially his room, was the usual mess. marshall’s face was hairy as ever (i give him a lot of grief, i hate pokey hairy facial hair!).. marshall was in puma soccer shorts and lounging on the couch (reading the fourth twilight book no less) and i just let myself in as per usual. and we laughed about all this when i got there. a lot changes in two years, it was fun to look back on that first day i went to his house though.

i always remember dates. i am a date/number freak. i mean, i count my steps when going up and down stairs and i look for synchronicities in phone numbers. am i alone here or do you guys remember the most insignificant dates as well?

dinner was good. hamburger salad!

  • 7 lettuce blend
  • spinach
  • mushrooms
  • tomatoes
  • avocado
  • sprouts
  • 1 hamburger patty (i have millions left over from my birthday bbq)
  • shredded cheddah
  • ketchup, mustard & frank’s


who needs salad dressing when you have burger condiments?

marshall is cute. he posed his burger and asked me to take a photo. i love him. he has never read my food blog (he reads my real-life blog) but he asked for the address to it last night. perhaps he will check it out :)

oh! as you all know, marshall’s roomies are who i refer to as “the vegans”.. and they have been working on getting buff lately. it is hard to get all your protein in as a vegan, well, if you are going for high protein intake that is. nick had this weird looking loaf thing. i did a double take.

apparently it is vegetable loaf.. and that bad boy packs 140 grams of protein!! wow! and 30 grams of fat. he didn’t know the carb content, i would like to know.

he gave me a taste. it was pretty good, but very, very dense.  i couldn’t eat much of it, that is for sure. he didn’t eat the whole thing.. but daaaang, that is a lot of protein in such a little loaf! have you guys tried this? i like the way they shaped it.

it was a classic TWSS moment when i said, “i love the way it looks, and it is so big!” ahaha.. everyone had a good laugh at my remark.

i got to the gym yesterday for a high intensity interval training sesh! it was a classic BFL-style HIIT.

minutes 1-2 warm up @ 5mph

minute 3 @ 6 mph

minute 4 @ 6.5 mph

minute 5 @ 7 mph

minute 6 @ 7.5 mph

minutes 7 – 18 repeat of the cycle above

minute 19 @ 8.5 mph

minute 20 @ 4.0 mph

sooo my ankle is messed up. the left one. i thought it was just sore from my run the other day, but the soreness has gone away from the right ankle and the left one is giving me grief. so bad that i had to stop running and step on the side of the treadmill a few times. i hope it is nothing serious, because i have a 10k in less than a month! ugh. better get to the doc just to be safe.

i was going to go on a hike after my run. utah is known for our glorious hikes, they are all in my backyard, it is sooo rad.  but then as i was driving home it was basically like i was driving into the depths of hell and a huge thunderstorm struck. my friends still went hiking in the madness of the storm.. but i bailed and went to marshall’s. i already had worked out twice yesterday, i think i was ok on passing up the hike. next time, next time.

plus i have killer DOMS in my hamstrings from my deadlifts monday!!!! love it. hurts so good.


i was late for work today. 40 minutes late. i can not wake up to save my life.  all you lovely bloggie friends are SUCH morning people.. you are like yeah, i woke up late at 7 AM.  waking up late for me would be noon.. really.. i don’t know if i will ever be a morning person.

i turned to an old friend for breakfast.. ohhh how i have missed my protein oats! made with good old fashioned quaker oats.  i used to eat this every single day of my life when i was doing strict body for life challenges. i forgot how much i love them!

this bowl was spectacular. it included:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 scoop EAS vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup water

then i cooked it in the micro on level 3 for 4 minutes and added:

  • splash of almond milk
  • 1/2 of a medium banana
  • scoop of creamy PB

deliciousness in a bowl.

and i had some coffee.

lunch came next, i just got done eating it actually. i had a pizza wrap and i took a play-by-play while making it.. enjoy!

flat out + TJ’s red pepper spread

turkey pepperoni+spinach

green pepper+mushrooms

sprouts+extra sharp cheddar (the sharper the better)

as i was trying to wrap it up, i was the only one there to answer phones at the moment so i had three failed attempts at my wrapping up business! but i finally got it handled and it was glorious!

i ate it in halves.

the insides!

polished it off with some agua.

okay! well.. my posting times have been weird lately, seems like i have lost my routine and am posting half of two days instead of all of one day. oh well, it still works out i think! i will continue to roll with the punches.

thanks for all your suggestions on the potluck! i forgot to mention it is not totally a potluck, we have this group of amazzzing mexican bbq-ers that work here. ever since they started working in our factory we have swapped out the regular potluck for mexican fiestas because they make the most amazing marinated carne asada, authentic beans, rice and cabbage slaw.. oh and salsa that would make jess blush.. seriously their cooking is off the chain amazing.

but my boss loves my cooking too, so he asked me to make and bring some stuff.. i have decided to whip up a huge batch of guacamole and then do two different salad.. probably a pasta salad and a green salad. haven’t decided which salads yet exactly though.. better figure it out quick since it is tomorrow!

i better bail, i have a lot to get done today before i am off work.. and then after work i have to do an upper body workout, the shred, grocery store, target, cook for the luncheon, shower, head up north to the boy’s town to go see the hangover! oh but my week goals are going just swimmingly!  i have managed to get a full gallon in both monday and tuesday, actually way more than a gallon yesterday. i have knocked out two days of the shred and one HIIT session and one weight training session. i tried two new foods (PB vitatop & vegetable loaf). i have done 440 ab reps and my goal is 1000, but i am not counting the reps from the shred dvd.. this is separate.


1. have you always been a morning person? are you one now? or are you like me and could sleep til noon and not even wake up to pee…

2. do you love DOMS like i do? or do you haaaate it?

ciao for now!

I am drooling one of those wraps- they look AMAZING! Wow. Impressive stuff girl!

I interpret the cartoon means that you need some dipping material (wait, am I just analyzing a cartoon about hummus?..oy vey) hehe. I love TFD- have you checked out Vimrod?

I am obsessed with dates- I can’t tell you what I did this morning, but I can tell you exactly what I did on this day last year (nothing special but I keep diaries to look back and be like, “exactly one year ago I was at X doing Y”)

I’d send you some of my morning energy if you’d send me some night energy- I crash out by 9:30pm despite my loading up on caffeine to keep going all night (that’s what she said!)

Oh just remembered an amazing pasta salad I used to make for potlucks that was so easy and so good- you just mix chopped canned tomatoes with mayo until it is the colour of thousand island dressing, then ad cooked spinach and ricotta tortellini. It’s AMAZING!

Whoa, that veggie loaf looks dense! I will eat tofurkey loafs which looks somewhat similar for holidays, etc. I don’t mind DOMS but sometimes I end up looking ridiculous when I walk because of it.

Leah June 10, 2009 at 2:45 pm

I am definitely a morning person. I’m always ready for bed by like 10.. including weekends lol. I’m lame, I know.

jenngirl June 10, 2009 at 3:05 pm

I love comparing the “little” moments in life like that! What a funny way to look at your visits to his house, haha I like the comparison/contrast. Oh how time changes things :)

Love the oats AND that pizza wrap! YUM!

I’m definitely a morning person, and I think deep down I always have been, but a few years ago, sleeping late was my way of life. Now, I realize that my mind, body, and whole self just work better in the hours before noon everyday, and I love it!

Coco Knudson June 10, 2009 at 3:30 pm

I’m an abnormally early morning person, even if I have a huge f**ing hangover and want to curl up in a ball haha. I don’t know what it is, but I can’t sleep in anymore!!! BAHHH!!! your protein oats look so yummy. Someday we should do a bloggie swap and send eachother a few things cuz I have been dying to try flatout wraps and they are non-existent here in Boston!!!!!

Susan June 10, 2009 at 3:33 pm

Me and my boyfriend are the same way now too, we joke about it all the time. The fun part though is randomly getting dressed nice for him and seeing his reaction! :)

Your mom is so cute!!! Now I totally miss my mom!

HIIT on the treadmill always makes my ankles hurt. I think I run funny when I push the high speeds. But that’s no good if you actually had to hop off a few times. Hopefully it feels better!!!

Oh and I NEVER used to be a morning person. My professors went on strike third year and I honestly slept 10-11 hours a night. Then I randomly started waking up at 7am everyday this year. My mom says it’s hormones – ie I’m getting old. My random work times don’t help much either…

Em June 10, 2009 at 4:11 pm

OH MY GOSH! Your mom is too cute, and looks just like you too :)

I am so a morning person, it kinda sucks though because even if I try to sleep in I am usually up bright and early. I always lay in my bed trying to go back to sleep, but then I think how much I want a cup of coffee and Im up!haha.

Hope your having a great day dear <33

P.S. I totally went out and bought the new Sounds album. I haven't fully made it all the way though yet. Im not sure what I think in comparison to the others…what do you think about it?

ksgoodeats June 10, 2009 at 4:24 pm

Let’s rebel and ONLY eat hummus – you’ve got your protein, healthy fats, fruit and veggies (lemon lovers? roasted red pepper?).

Your mom is BEAUTIFUL!! What a cute story about your ‘anniversary’ of going to his house – oh how times change! I can make poke fun at the vegans because I’m vegetarian (right?!) but that thing looks like a grenade! Hahah! Very interesting!

I’ve just trained myself to be a morning person – I REALLY can’t sleep in any more! It’s weird, 8:30 is my max! Your pizza wrap puts mine to shame!

What DOMS? I’m dumb and I don’t get it :(

Anne K. June 10, 2009 at 4:40 pm

Aw your momma is so cute! And I love that story about you and Marshall. That’s so adorable, and it’s funny how relationships change like that. You guys sound so cute together :D

Love the hamburger salad! Those are always winners. That loaf thing is crazy! I thought it was some sort of corn on the cob gone terribly wrong. A veg loaf sounds interesting, though!

I hope your ankle is okay. Yea, it’s best to go to the doctor and get it checked out. Do you know if you pronate when you run? Or do you have flat feet? I had a ton of foot/ankle problems when I wasn’t in the right shoes (I need motion control), and before I got my orthotics.

Love the pizza wrap! That’s some major deliciousness right there.

1) I’m NOT a morning person. It’s funny though, I hate waking up late cause it messes with my meal times and I feel like I slept the day away. I like getting up around 7:30-8.

2) I like DOMS, but I don’t like when it keeps me from working out again! Haha :D

broccolihut June 10, 2009 at 11:01 pm

Burger salad? Pizza Wrap? You are all about re-making classics–and I love them all!

snackface June 10, 2009 at 11:51 pm

First off, I’m with K and don’t know what DOMS is. I swear I’m not that dumb. Or am I?

Your Mama is SOOOO cute! Oh my gosh she is too fabulous!

Awww I love the reminiscing about your first date with Marshall and how it’s changed over two years. I haven’t been with anyone long enough to make lovely comparisons like that, but I can say that prickly facial hair is the worst. Don’t mess with my beaut complexion, bro!

I think I saw that vegetable loaf today in an Asian supermarket. They also had a vegetarian ham loaf, half a chicken, shrimp, duck neck and other disgusting things I don’t think vegans would actually want to eat. I failed to check out the nutrition stats on that loaf, but I’m pretty sure it could be used as a weapon.

Burger salad is outta control! I love it!

Jessica (jesslikesithot) June 11, 2009 at 12:33 am

Salsa i’d blush over?!!! Hmmmmm, send me some!! ;) The spicier the betta!

And aww that first night at your bf’s house sounds so cute!! It’s hilarious that you two both put SO much effort into it at first, and 2 years in you can be comfortable and casual with each other….. hairy, makeup-less and all!

I usually wake up (in the summer time) between 9 and 10, so i’m in the middle!

Ps-your mom is the cutest thing!!! She’s posing with her wrap just like my mom would!

coco June 11, 2009 at 3:43 am

I’ve always been a morning person and more lately! Now I go to bed around 9.30-10pm and wake (without and alarm) at 5.30am! Love this way to workout in the morning! :)
I like your salads, wraps and gigantic bowl of salads!

Michelle June 11, 2009 at 9:47 am

Love the cute cartoon about the hummus!! LOL Made me smile :)

I’ve always been a morning person; the latest I’ve ever slept in my life was 11 am, and that was only once.

I get up daily (weekdays) at 5:15 am for a workout before work, and on the weekends don’t usually sleep past 7:00-7:30 am! Crazy, I know!!

Lovin’ that pizza wrap mmmm!

Lori June 11, 2009 at 3:57 pm

I love avocado on burgers! The burger salad looks great, but I’d have to skip the ketchup and mayo. Maybe bbq sauce and Franks for me. :)

Mom June 11, 2009 at 6:50 pm

Whoa, where to start – the gigantic humungous loaf made me laugh! I agree, it looks like corn on the cob after a fire! You memory of your first time at Marshall’s is priceless, glad you have such a terrific memory! Your food is making my mouth water as I am consuming yet another “meal drink” I am such a loser! Oh that you could cook for me daily! I LOVED the lunch wrap, yum, thanks for being so awesome!! xoxoxo
P.S> Thanks to all of you for being so complimentary of me!
