i'm that girl

happy HUMP day my pretties :) i feel like this week is going by quite fast- yay for that!! this week has been another busy one so far- lots of work and school. blah. my mom is a caterer (can't remember if i have mentioned that before or not) so her season is just kicking in as well and i've been helping her in addition to all of my other commitments. i'm beginning to realize i'm somewhat of a work-a-holic- i can't decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing? thoughts? i mean i would MUCH rather being running around like a chicken with my head cut off than sitting around doing nothing. my favorite days at work are insanely busy ones with lots of work to be done- those slow, quiet days go by sooo painfully slowly. yuck.

okay, so sunday was spent being productive- laundry, bathing ollie, homework, etc etc. i did 70 minutes of cardio at the gym. on the way i picked up a much needed non-fat cappucino (with an

extra shot of espresso) from starbs.

holiday cups make me smile :) my smile would be even bigger if it was actually COLD out instead of this ridiculous 89 degree weather. it's very hard to get in the holiday spirit when it feels like the middle of summer. this cup says it all- i wish for a snow day...sigh...

sundays eating was kind of sparse during the day- i had an unpictured chobani and z bar for a late brunch and then nothing until dinner. i just wasn't hungry- very unlike me hah. dinner was nice and light.

amy's alphabet soup :) i felt like a little kid again- it was fab!

monday was an uber early morning- my mom had a huge breakfast and luncheon for our local hospital association. the alarm went off at 5, and let me tell you i am NOT a morning person. my first stop was for coffee, obvi. the event went great and i was done by 3. after working with food for hours the last thing i want to do is eat. i did snack on a zucchini muffin and a little bit of chicken salad at the event however. i hit up the gym for 80 insanely sweaty minutes of cardio and headed home happy as a clam :) i got even happier when i saw 2 packages on my doorstep...

package numero uno was from corinne at pop chips- she sent me a fabulous variety of pop chips to review for the blog. i cannot wait to try them after reading so many good things about them from other bloggies. thank you SO much corinne!

package numbero dos was from gabriela at une vie saine- she was kind enough to send me some seasonal clif bars (pumpkin pie, gingerbread, and cranberry orange nut) after hearing that i couldn't find them any where in my town. she also send me two cookies from magnolia's bakery in nyc (where she lives). gab you ROCKKKKKK! these cookies were INSANE and i cannot wait to try the bars. thank you thank you thank you- you made my week! ps if you dolls haven't checked out her blog, please do- i guarantee you will love it :)

dinner was a french salad made with love by momma sue- and 1 and half pieces of mulitgrain boule.

the salad was a mixture of fresh boston and bib lettuce with tomato, avocado, hard boiled egg, and a petit marmit dressing. twas ridiculously delish! as was the toast of course :) it was followed by a somewhat disappointed episode of gossip girl- i mean come on, couldn't they have created a better 3some then dan, olivia, and vanessa?!? i was thinking of something more scandelous- along the lines of chuck, jenny, and nate?!? i know- i'm bad.

tuesday actually started out with BREAKFAST! i woke up early and decided to have an unpictured bowl of cheerios with low fat milk and naner slices. nom nom. this kept me full until about 2ish, when i had an unpictured pumpkin yogurt with granola. sorry i was really bad with the camera yesterday! after work i did 80 minutes of cardio and rushed home for my ultimate tv night- 90210, the hills, the city, and styl'd. yes, i'm THAT girl- who likes THOSE shows. trashy tv is my guilty pleasure- ain't no shame in my game :) dinner was amy's tuscan bean and rice soup with some added sauteed mushrooms.

this soup was really good- but extremely filling. i only ate about half of the mug and then had a toasted arnie with a smear of jalepeno hummus. i was close to a food pregnancy when i finished. oopsey daisy.
today has been a fairly busy day at work. mid-morning i had pumpkin yogurt with a tiny spoonful of udi's. as you can tell i am LOVING the stonyfield pump yog! lunch was two tiny slices of unpictured veggie pizza with tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, and vidalia onions. i also had a few bites of greek salad. i cannot remember the last time i had pizza for lunch. it was SOOOOO good, but now my tummy is hurting. i just can't eat like that at lunch. oh well, ya live ya learn.
okay back to work, then gym, then studying. blah. xoxo that girl


  1. I'm not a workaholic at all. If I enjoyed my job I think I would be, but I just go to work do my tasks and surf the internet. That sounds really bad!!

    I haven't watched the new 90210. I was OBSESSED with the old one when I was in high school and college so I feel like I'm betraying them by watching the new one. I'm really weird like that.

  2. You're lucky, I;m definitely not a workaholic, though I often wish I were! I'm so glad you liked the package, and it looks like the cookies got there in one piece- I was worried they would crumble! (They're brown sugar...I think I forgot to put that in the card?) Your salad looks super yummy, anything with avocadoes is good in my book! Have a great night :)

  3. POPCHIPS! ahhh girl your gonna love them, espeically the bbq flavor! pretty sure i'm drooling just thinking about them right now! :) Hope you had a great hump day babe! oxox

  4. I love to be busy too so I completely understand!! I hate when things are slow at work.. yeah I wasn't to impressed with this weeks Gossip Girl!!

    I love popchips too! I am reviewing one's they sent me tomorrow!

    THanks for the sweet comment on my blog!!

  5. magnolia baker rocks. hands down best place in NYC :D

    mm you sure did get some great Clif Bars :)

  6. I know! I love the holiday cups...but we are having 80 degree weather here too....BOOO!

    I've had Amy's yummy alphabet soup, but I have not had the tuscan bean and rice soup.....I need to get on that!

  7. i love amys alphabet and also non fat cap's!! we are just twinnies, girl!!

    80 min of cardio?! damn girl!! thats a long time!

    but yes, I think I am that girl too who loves the trashy TV shows :)

  8. The alphabet soup is classic. I haven't seen a can of that in years, heck I forgot it existed.

    As for the 70 minutes of cardio - whoa! You don't want to release the nasty hormone called "cortisol" and that stuff will eat away at your muscle. And you don't want that.

  9. JUST found your blog and wanted to say hi ;)

    looking forward to reading more!

  10. Amy's soup! I bought one by accident (it seriously just fell in the cart) so now I'll try it. Lentil. Hope it's greedy-good.

  11. Hope all is well with you!!
