flashback friday round seventeen.

by Janetha on December 18, 2009

in meals,moves

this may possibly be the flashiest flashback friday ever.  and i mean flash as in quick—not as in blingin’.

i have somewhere to be at 8 PM and oh~it is 8:02! woops!


the highlight of today’s meals was my breakfast!  well, i didn’t have it until about 10 AM so is that brunch?  maybe so.

taco soup scramble + ww toast


i took two eggs and scrambled them with a wedge of laughing cow and then to that i added some leftover taco soup from last night~just not the brothy part. it made for a fantastic mexican scramble! topped with a dollop of fat free sour cream and a sprinkle of cheddar and paired with one slice of nature’s path whole wheat toast. yum.


another highlight of today?


nuts & cranberry luna, you never let me down.

i drank a gallon of water today. finally. i’ve been slacking.  i need to check in on my december goals! tomorrow…


i made up a rad HIIT hills routine today!

how funny.. i noticed how my beer consumption went from lots.. to moderate.. to little.. to none. hah. guess i am not the party animal i used to be ;) i lke to go out still but more often than not i find myself staying in with marshall and the dogs. and i am totally ok with that.

welp. that’s all i’ve got for you guys tonight. i am off to a party~it’s a toys for tots party and everyone has to bring a toy to donate. so rad. i love my friends.

hope you all have a GREAT night and FABULOUS weekend~get all that last minute christmas shopping done :)


1. are you more of a “going out” type of person or are you a homebody who likes to stay in? the older i get.. the more i like to stay home. but tonight i am going out! see ya!

2. quick! tell me the BEST meal you had this week and the BEST workout you did this week! my best meal was the soup and sunbutter+muenster grilled cheese the other night and the best workout was the treadmill one i showed you above.

Aww, Mabel and the mini schnauzer- wayyy too cute (along with Miss P and Randy of course).

You look so great in all of those shots- not a bad one in the bunch. Lots of red eyes in the dec 2006 photo (not yours though!). All your friends are so pretty too. Fun snowboarding shots- cute outfit too. It’s hard to wear white and look that slim!

Total stay at home grandma!

Best workout: Jump Roping overlooking the Pacific ocean today. Rad.

Best meal: Honestly, greek yogurt with berries, Some of Beeks chia granola and my own homemade almond butter.

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) December 19, 2009 at 8:41 am

By the way, (totally different post) I have been spelling omelet wrong my whole life. Even spellcheck doesn’t know what I’m trying to say when I spell it. And I eat eggs almost every.day.of.my.life. :-/ Tongue, omelet, whateveh

traynharder23 December 18, 2009 at 9:10 pm

staying in! for SURE! i went clubbing once and that settled it!

best meal: korean marinated chicken thigh. ummm delish. 12/17 workout. i love kettlebells and i love situps/abs shit.

Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) December 18, 2009 at 9:10 pm

Your friends + You = Total Hotties!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy going on honey b/c if you ever have a kid, you’ll be “in” way more than you’d probably like. 95% of the time it’s cool but there are times I long for that spontaneous going out moment. Like right now, but hey, hubs is passed out and so is kidlet, and I get alone computer time, which is cool too :)

HAVE FUN tonite!!!!!!!!!!!

Brittany December 18, 2009 at 9:18 pm

Ahh. I loved all the photos of you in this post. Looks like you’ve had some good times these past couple of years.

I’m with you on wanting to stay in more as I get older… something about staying at home and cuddling on the couch (or blogging) is more appealing now! :)

Have fun at the party my lady!

Lisa December 18, 2009 at 9:47 pm

I’m much more of a homebody than I used to be. Fridays are generally my “stay in” days and Saturday are my go out nights. I’d much rather go to dinner and a movie with friends rather than a bar or a club.

My favorite was my Turkey Minestrone I made!

kbwood December 18, 2009 at 9:53 pm

1. depends on the night!! i love going out and having a good time- i never regret it! but i get bored/stircrazy staying in!!

2. BEST meal..umm oatmeal w. PB? bahaha..best workout was def a 6 miler (on headache drugs..it was AWESOME)

i love those flashback pics! LOVE your blonde hair!

Megan December 18, 2009 at 10:08 pm

toasted nuts and cranberry = the BEST luna bar ever!!

and i love your flashback fridays :)

1. I think it depends on my mood.. sometimes I love staying in and just hanging out but other times I love going out and having a good time!!

2. Best meal I’ve had this week… my dinner tonight! Haha, it was a greek yogurt mess with chocolate protein powder stirred in, with a crumbled chocolate brownie Zbar, and crumbled graham crackers!! It tasted like a s’more.. SO GOOD!

Best workout this week… a lovely 8 miler right after I finished my last final of the semester!!

Stef @ moretolifethanlettuce December 18, 2009 at 10:11 pm

nuts and cranberry lunas never let me down either! that mini schnauzer is SO CUTE i want him! you look gorgeous in all of those pics!

1. i think i’m a homebody, but i try to drag myself out there because once i’m out i have fun!
2. best meal this week: quorn chick’n patty i discovered for the first time, farmer’s market veggies, ww couscous, mixed up with a little bit of hummus AND guac. NOM!
best workout: tonight walking for ~1 hour through beautiful (hilly!) neighborhoods in san francisco enjoying the sunset and perfect temperature

Bekah December 18, 2009 at 10:14 pm

you are a hottie janetha. any and whichever year you pick. you win. 130 pounds? 110 pounds? psh. any pounds. you’re hot.

best workout? thursdays are my hard days with weights- so i go really heavy, so yeterday was a damn good workout, and this morning i did a yoga podcast that was one of the best ones ive ever done. that in combination with the soreness from yesterday? holyy jeeze. i’m wiped.

i’m replying to your e-mail as i type. :)

Carbzilla December 18, 2009 at 10:52 pm

Awwwww, sweet Mabel. And the mini-schnauzer… so cute. What did she name him/her?

You’re hot either way, but you look younger with bangs – just sayin’

I hope you don’t hate me for sometimes ignoring your questions. Sometimes I only have time to comment and then have to scoot. :)

Lynn at The Actors Diet December 18, 2009 at 11:18 pm

total homebody.
that puppy was so cute – still cute?!

mom December 18, 2009 at 11:41 pm

Oh yumm I must make the taco soup and then have the egg scramble mmmgood! Glad for all the flash back photos…great memories and oh my how we’ve changed:)

I like to go out but I really like my comfy clothes and a good book!

The best meal was probably all the fudge I consumed today ugh!!! Xoxoxo

Nicci December 18, 2009 at 11:46 pm

The best meal I had was some veggie soup and best workout was a crunch cardio workout. I wish I had some snow in my life right now.

Karin December 19, 2009 at 12:36 am

That flashback friday is fabulous! I also used to be quite a party monster but not that much any more these days.. Except for tonight ;).
My best meal was the Italian veggie bulgur that I whipped up the other day and best workout was yesterday’s yoga class. SO GOOD!

Lauren December 19, 2009 at 5:37 am

Love this collection of FF pics! Don’t you just love looking back through old photos. It brings me so much joy. ;)

OMG the schnauzer is soooo freaking adorable! And Marshall is pretty darn cute too! :)

Have fun tonight. I am definitely more of a homebody. Going out is overrated in your 20’s! haha.

Best meal I’ve had this week was my Roasted Veggie and Shrimp in a Balsamic Dijon Cream Sauce. Oh it was pretty much amazing!

Emily (The Experimentarian) December 19, 2009 at 6:15 am

I love how you have had the same group of friends forever–that is so nice!

Um, you already k now that I will stay in like an old lady any day of the week :)

Best meal: ginger glazed ham and cauliflower mac n cheese. Best workout: Shiz. I haven’t really had an awesome workout this week bc everything’s been so busy. BUT, I do have to say that rockin my new elliptical trainer has been pretty sweet. merry Christmas to me :) Ugh–I have not done weights at all this week though–mayja slacker! P.S. holla if you want to swing by later today and exchange goodies. Miss your face! xoxo

Jocelyn December 19, 2009 at 6:37 am

love all of the flashback pictures :)
I think the party idea (toys for tots) is a great idea! Have fun! <3

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is December 19, 2009 at 6:51 am

I am such a homebody. I really am a dork. I love to stay in. :)

Michal December 19, 2009 at 7:31 am

mmm taco soup scramble. yum!

I love all of the flashback pictures, the doggies are so cute :)

ellie December 19, 2009 at 7:41 am

LOVE FF! The scramble sounds awesome too. I have been craving eggs big time lately. Odd.

1. are you more of a “going out” type of person or are you a homebody who likes to stay in? HOME! I used to love going out, but really don’t like it anymore. I don’t drink anymore so not a fan of clubs/bars where everyone is drunk. Early dinner and nice coffee shops are my nights out!

2. quick! tell me the BEST meal you had this week and the BEST workout you did this week! Best meal was a bean/butternut squash loaf with yogurt dressing over a salad with roasted vegetables, best work out was a Jillian Michaels DVD.

Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) December 19, 2009 at 7:57 am

I love the use of your soup in breakfast- so creative!

Cute FBF pics! Esp that puppy- too cute!

1. I go out every once in a while, after all- I am still in college! But I love staying at home.
2. Best meal: Minestrone soup with quinoa
Best workout: 1 h run on Monday =)

Hope you had fun at the party!


Abby (Nibble, Nourish, Run) December 19, 2009 at 8:12 am

Omg puppy – I’m in love so cute!

1. Best meal – chicken paillard – so delish!
2. HOMEBODY!! Although tis the season to be social and spirited right!?

Sarah (Finding My Balance) December 19, 2009 at 8:30 am

Mm, your breakfast looks so good, girlie-o. Smart thinking!

1. I like to stay in. Here, I “have to” go out, or else I would never see people with whom I can easily communicate..
2. Best meal-a big salad! Or FREE coffee at Starbucks (free makes things taste tonnns better, eh?)
Best workout-does “running” about a mile to work in sub-zero temperatures while carrying 2 heavy bags count as a workout? If so, I did that 3 times this week. Might need to work on time management. Maybe….

Lindsay December 19, 2009 at 9:28 am

Girl your hair looks perf in every picture. Gorgeous! I used to be a going-out girl, but you’re so right the older I get the more homebody-ish I become. However, my little sis just turned legal age and she is a college party animal sooo my Christmas break might be a little crazzyyy… Have a great weekend!!

Jess December 19, 2009 at 11:38 am

1. are you more of a “going out” type of person or are you a homebody who likes to stay in? I’m definitely a stay-in type of girl – I love going out during the day with the sunshine, but evenings are for curling up with husbands and books!

2. quick! tell me the BEST meal you had this week and the BEST workout you did this week! Meal: Cabbage stew with cauliflower dip on the side . . .
Workout – yoga at home.

Andrea@WellnessNotes December 19, 2009 at 11:47 am

Great flashback pics!

1. As I got older, I appreciated staying in more. However, right now I’m staying in a lot (a bit too much) because of the toddler, so I can’t wait to go out a bit more again…
2. Best workout: 60 sweaty minutes on the stair climber. Best meal: Dinner at my mother-in-laws.

Happy Weekend! :)

Katie December 19, 2009 at 12:43 pm

Ha! Great flashback photos!

I love how your workouts are so organized – and they are great to follow on your blog!

Happy weekend,


Tamzin December 19, 2009 at 1:59 pm

What cute dogs!
The best workout has to be my spin class on wednesday and favorite meal would be yesterdays, I had rice noodles, olives, steamed veg and sundried tomato sauce so good!

Have a fun night x x

Erica December 19, 2009 at 2:05 pm

How freaking cute is that mini schnauzer? I just want to give him a hug! Love your pictures over the years. My drinking has def moved the same way too :)

1. I like a nice combo of both… but mostly a home body :)

2. Best meal= black bean chocolate chili from last night yummmm, best workout- this morning teaching Body Step and then Body Pump woo woo

Devan December 19, 2009 at 2:19 pm


1.I like both. Definatly more of a homebody.. but when I go out.. i Parrrtaaay<3 ;-)

2.roasted bsprouts. not a meal.. but they were SO good I was madly craving them

Susan December 20, 2009 at 7:37 am

You must get this a lot – but you look so different without bangs!!! Not in a good or bad way though, because you’re seriously h-o-t in all your pics ;)

I’m breaking out into a sweat just looking at that treadmill workout. I must try that. I may fail though, incline workouts kiiiiill me. Way more than speed.

1. I used to be all about the going out, but not so much anymore. I still like going out, but I also crash and burn come 11 pm. And I can’t sleep in, so it’s kinda taken the fun out of going out for me, as I’m always wrecked the next day (booze or no booze)

2. Hm, either my molasses custard oats, or one of my tofurkey wraps smothered in mustard and pickles. I loved all my workouts this week! I think the best was the full-body weight lifting sesh though. I don’t do intense ones like that anymore because of my bum hip, but it left me mega sore for three whole days.

Jenny December 20, 2009 at 4:08 pm

I don’t know what your talking about – this FBF was totally blingin’!

I used to be a party animal throughout high school… then I guess after graduation I matured 70 years over night and now I prefer staying in and watching movies and drinking tea. I know, I’m cool… you don’t have to tell me twice



lowandbhold December 21, 2009 at 9:11 am

Mini schnauzers might be the cutest pups ever. Love.

I definitely go out less each year. I still like to once in a blue moon, mainly for drinks with close friends and to bed early.

Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) December 31, 2009 at 11:46 am

omg I love the puppy pictures!!! I can’t help it, I love puppies.

I love all of the going out pictures too. The older I get, the less I go out but I really enjoy it when I do.
