dinner plan B.

hey, guys! it’s a cereal for dinner night.

you see, we had some enchiladas in the oven. i was parked on the couch while they baked. i had a big basset hound on me. he was pooped from a long day at doggy daycare. 


after about 45 minutes, i asked marshall to check on the enchiladas since i was stuck under randy. wouldn’t want to disturb the pup!

well.. come to find out, the upper oven was preheated.. and the enchiladas were in the lower oven. whoops! hahah.. i am still laughing about it. 

marshall is going to wait it out until they are done cooking.. but i was SO hungry. i had gone from work to the gym to the mall–i was ready to eat my arm.  i had cereal instead. gotta keep those arms in case i need them! 

my workout today was super short! but fun. it’s called squatch and goes like this:

i finished in 14:42, which was 13 seconds quicker than last time i did this in september. yay for getting speedier. and yay for workouts that last less than 15 minutes! oh–utah locals! GPP is on groupon right now. clickity click. way good deal. come work out with me!

like i said, i went to the mall after the gym to help kristen find shoes for her engagement photos. i am so excited for her–the wedding is coming right up!

after the mall i went to GNC for some supplements. i got fish oil and evening primrose oil. i also got marshall some creatine. 


i will be adding these to my supplement lineup. i have been out of fish oil for quite awhile so it’s good that i re-upped. i have never taken the evening primrose oil, but i will let you know how i like it!

i have two giveaway winners to announce–the good bean giveaway winner is #127, amy, and the more peas, thank you giveaway winner is #36 chatelaine. congrats!

anyway, that’s all i’ve really got to share tonight. i know, kinda boring. or i guess you could look at it as short and sweet?!

here are a few ecards that caught my eye.. just for fun.

That first card is so true!! Even when we look great, we’re never happy. It’s tough being a girl!

My last kitchen fail was chilli. I thought I was too cool to follow the recipe, got distracted and put in WAY too much chicken broth. It was basically soup. My husband was a trooper for the night, but he opted to buy lunch the next day instead of take leftovers. Whoops!

I have one at least once a week. My latest was trying to make something to curb my chocolate cravings that wouldn’t enlarge my backside as much as the Oreos in the pantry. I decided to roast some almonds coated with a little concoction of cocoa powder, salt and stevia drops. They tasted like butt. The good news is that I had lost my appetite for the night. I guess technically I curbed the craving.

Denise April 12, 2013 at 10:34 am

Hahaaaa! They tasted like butt. Hilarious,

kendra @ kennygump April 10, 2013 at 11:02 pm

i’ve got the housewife thing down. now my husband is working on the getting rich part.

when i remember, i take a prenatal (the best women’s multi), fish oil, glucosamine (for my running and weight lifting joints) and echinacea.

Annie April 11, 2013 at 1:32 am

Hi Janetha,

I love your website! I take CLA and amino acids and protein powder every day. i also have a multivitamin but often forget to take it.

BTW I totally love the protein smoothy you posted a while ago and became hooked but now i seem to have become affected by xanthan gum :( :(

Michelle @ Eat Move Balance April 11, 2013 at 3:23 am

Fish oil and probiotics. Probiotics have probably had the biggest impact though. They help so much with digestion, I can’t believe the difference. Interesting about the evening primrose–let us know!

Jan @ Sprouts n Squats April 11, 2013 at 4:47 am

Got to love cereal for dinner :)

Nicole @ Fruit 'N' Fitness April 11, 2013 at 5:17 am

Randy does look like he had a hard day at daycare! I am horrible about remembering to take vitamins but when I do I take a multi, biotin and calcium.

Anna @AnnaTheApple April 11, 2013 at 5:32 am

I literally laughed out loud at those ecards. So true about the cleaning.
I don’t take any vitamins at all…maybe I should but I just haven’t felt the need. Though fish oils I guess would probably be a good one!

Erica April 11, 2013 at 7:41 am

hahahhahahhaha. That is SO something I would do. Good times ;) Cereal it is! Oats is always my go to.

1. what was your last kitchen fail? I forgot a major ingredient in a bar recipe. Whoops- thats what happens when you think you know a recipe by heart ;)

2. what supplements/vitamins do you take daily? Just a multi

Carly @ Snack Therapy April 11, 2013 at 7:59 am

That first e-card cracks me up. So true! And cereal for dinner sounds pretty perfect to me. Can’t really go wrong with that, right?

Debbie (Accidently Delish) April 11, 2013 at 8:09 am

Sometimes when we clean our stove top if we don’t put the tops back on correctly they don’t heat up. There have been SO many times I’ve turned it on and walked away to come back 15 minutes later expecting a hot pot but its still completely cold! I always laugh!

Suzanne April 11, 2013 at 8:09 am

So glad I found your website via Pinterest. I just purchased the groupon for GPP, awesome! We just moved to the area and I am always looking for new things to try.

Janetha April 11, 2013 at 9:34 am

Awesome! What time do you plan to go?

Suzanne April 11, 2013 at 10:09 am

Thinking of trying the 6:30 class tonight and the 9:30 tomorrow. I have never done anything like this so I am a little worried.

Janetha April 11, 2013 at 11:35 am

Don’t be worried! It is fun and everyone is so kind. I won’t be at either of those times, but my good friends go to the 9:30 AM every day. I usually go to 5 or 5:45 PM. I hope to meet you one of these days!

Heather @ Fit Mama Real Food April 11, 2013 at 8:31 am

Bahahaha love those cards! And I would totally have made it a cereal or pancake night. If I’m hungry, no way am I going to wait a long time to eat! Great quick workout. Those are the best kind!

Linz @ Itz Linz April 11, 2013 at 9:04 am

lol! that’s really funny about the enchiladas!! once time i got my crockpot all ready with this chicken recipe and came home expecting a wonderfully smelling house… and nothin’! i forgot to turn it on!! DOH!

Annette@FitnessPerks April 11, 2013 at 9:40 am

That’s hilarious about the enchiladas!!

My last kitchen fail was not spraying the pan before putting the pizza on it. Goodbye crust!

Chatelaine April 11, 2013 at 10:54 am

thanks again for the giveaway! Looking forward to trying something out :)

Those cards are so perfect! The last one cracks me up as that’s what I have to do tonight before the in-laws come over……

Kitchen fails are happening more often as I try new veggie salads. It’s usually the dressings that are way off when they say – juice from one lemon, 1 whole avocado, 2 garlic cloves and all my veggie sizes are way off……

supplements? nothing more than protein shakes although a good probiotic might be worth trying.

Katie April 11, 2013 at 3:43 pm

Ahhh, that last ecard made my bust out laughing because it’s just so true.

(and my bum is sore from Squatch yesterday.)

Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning April 11, 2013 at 6:17 pm

Lol- that first e card rings SO true with me. I always say that I gained weight back so that I could realize how stupid I was to think that I was fat 20 lbs ago. I’d like to go back in time and slap that skinny bitch!
I haven’t taken any of my supplements/vitamins in almost 2 weeks. I didn’t bring any with me to CO and just haven’t gotten back in the habit yet. I wonder if it REALLLLLY makes a difference…..

BroccoliHut April 11, 2013 at 6:31 pm

Ha! Love those ecards.
My last kitchen fail…not sure, but it was probably burning grilled cheese. That happens way more often than I’d like to admit.
I take vitamin D and selenium daily.

Mary April 11, 2013 at 8:57 pm

I love the last card about the cleaning. Its so true that come people (including me) can make a real effort and clean up really super quickly when someone is coming over.

Denise April 12, 2013 at 10:39 am

Love your hound….adorable,

Sarah (The Simple Dietitian) April 12, 2013 at 11:26 am

Hahaha!! That cooking episode is definitely something that I would do. I’ve definitely done cereal for dinner more than once over the past month because of SOMETHING that went wrong. ;)

kris April 12, 2013 at 6:10 pm

haha, Totally did that before with my ovens. Squatch looks like an awesome (-ly hard) workout!

Stephanie April 13, 2013 at 8:46 pm

I started taking evening primrose oil to try to help clear my acne about 2 weeks ago. It made me nauseous and constipated and I had to stop taking it. Now I’m taking pantothenic acid which is supposed to have no side effects…hopefully it works! Anyway, good luck with the EPO and I hope it works for you!

Calee April 14, 2013 at 10:44 am

evening primrose oil is amazing. curious what you are going to take it for? I take it the week before my “friend” visits and during b/c it kills my PMS symptoms (that previously required muscle relaxers!).

Janetha April 14, 2013 at 10:22 pm

it’s great for skin and a wonderful source of healthy fat!

Trisha April 14, 2013 at 4:08 pm

Oh man, I can SO relate with all of those e-cards. Especially the first one! I had a baking fail on Thursday when I tried to sub butter with avocado in cookies. done it before, swapping half of the butter for avocado, but this time I went all out and they just didn’t taste great. :(

Trisha April 14, 2013 at 4:08 pm

*I’ve* done it before…

Janetha April 14, 2013 at 10:22 pm

bummer.. but that is an awesome idea!!
