I just thought I would let you all know that I may not be able to update my blog for the next month and a half.  I am coming to the end of my school semester and I have so much work that has to get done.  I have assignments/quizzes due every week and then (due at the end of the semester) I have a…

  • 3 – 4.5 page paper due for sociology
  • 5 – 7 page paper due for American Government
  • 7 – 10 page paper due for my Internet Law class

I will try to do at least one post once a week but I can’t guarantee anything.  I am going to be a busy bee until the end of the semester.  I wish I could do everything, blog twice a day and get all this school work done but I just have to focus on my schoolwork.  Don’t worry if I do not post I will be back April 20 for sure.  While I am away though I will still be taking picture of my eats and I will have posts of all the highlights while I’m away.



This morning I was looking for something fast.  I don’t have a lot of time to cook today so I went with some eggs.  On the side I had some honeydew and cantaloupe, by the way the cantaloupe is already gone.  I think I am going to have to get another one today.  Also, I had some left over waffles from yesterday so I threw them in the freezer, wrapped in plastic wrap.  I thought I would try and put one in the toaster(hoping that it would come out good).  Let me tell you, it was great!  I am definitely going to make and freeze some more.  To wrap up the whole meal I had a glass of milk (it was a whole glass but by the time I finished cooking the eggs it was only half full).  This meal was so easy and with school coming to an end I definitely need some quick ideas for meals.

Well, I am off; I have some much needed grocery shopping to do, laundry and I also have some homework that is due tomorrow that I have to work on.  Have a wonderful Monday!

Ps.  I almost forgot… At the beginning of the 100 Days of Real Food Challenge I thought I would weigh myself to see how much I could lose throughout the 100 Days.  Well today ways that start of week 2 and I am already down 2.75 pounds.  It is just so exciting and I have been eating awesome food and have not been depriving myself with not enough food.  I also feel like I have more energy throughout the day.  It is amazing that eating whole foods. for such a short time, can change the way you feel almost instantly.

This morning I decided to make some more waffles.  They were just so good, my mom wanted some more and I wanted my dad to try them also.  This time I thought I would just have them with some strawberries and maple syrup.  I also had an organic orange on the side.

Today I didn’t end up eating lunch.  The waffles filled me up and I was munching on some cantaloupe and honeydew melon while I was cutting them up and I just wasn’t hungry.



Dinner tonight was simple.  Pasta with mushroom and onion tomato sauce.  I had a couple cans of plain tomato sauce in the pantry so I just sautéed up some onion, cremini mushrooms and garlic.  Then I just poured the mixture into a sauce pan with the tomato sauce and added oregano, parsley, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.  So good!

For the rest of the night I am going to be looking at recipes and trying to figure out a meal plan for this week.  Also, I am going to finish watching Monsters Inc.  So cute!  I also have to get ready to start school again tomorrow.  I had a week off because of spring break but the semester is almost over.  April 19 and I am free for the summer; I can’t wait!!  Have a great Sunday night!

Yesterday just seemed like it went by too fast… at the beginning of the day I didn’t really do much because I had some homework that had to be done.  Once I was done with that I decided to finally go check out Tj Maxx.  I have been reading on a lot of blogs I read people going there and finding amazing deals.  So I thought why not go see what they have.  I did find some awesome deal but walked out empty handed.  I will definitely be going back though very soon!  After I went to the grocery store and spent way to much time there.  I got there around 8:30pm and didn’t leave until after 10pm.  To tell you the truth that is pretty good for me to get out of there in under 2 hours but that is when I am doing a major shopping trip.  The trip there yesterday was just to get a few things.

Anyway once I finally got out of the grocery store I came home and made some dinner.  I know it was late but time totally went by too fast and I forgot about dinner.

For dinner I made some yummy fajitas (x2)!

They were so good!  Well, I have an American government exam to take (which I was going to take yesterday) so I will good for now but I will be back later 🙂

I didn’t even do that much (except homework) but I am just feeling exhausted…  I started off my day just lounging around because it was just too cold in my house to get out of bed.  Once I did decide to get up I had lunch for breakfast and breakfast for lunch..haha!!

Since I am trying to get rid of all the processed foods in the house I had some popcorn chicken and some fries that were at the bottom of the freezer.. I didn’t even know they were still in there until I started digging!  After eating I had some homework to get done before I knew it my stomach was grumblin again!  I looked at the clock and it was already time for lunch… I decided to have some cereal.  I don’t know why but I was totally craving cereal.  Again once I finished lunch I got back to work on some homework and blog stuff while being distracted by the television a few dozen times.  During the day I can’t seem to turn off the t.v. because I can’t stand sitting in a quiet house.  I have to have some noise while I am working.

Well right now it is 9pm. I just got done eating dinner… nothing special thought. I had a veggie burger with some bread that was starting to get a little dry but needed to be eaten.  On the side I had some green beans and some cheese mashed potatoes that I found in the back of the pantry… I can’t wait until all this bad food is out of the house.  I am so excited to start this 100 Days of REAL Food Challenge… If you would like to join in on the challenge click here to check out Bobbi’s blog.  I am sure you can still join in on the challenge 🙂

I am trying to plan some exciting meals to share with you all when this challenge start.  I am hoping eating my whole foods helps me feel more energized and just feeling great.

So today I was trying to figure out if I should actually write a post because absolutely nothing exciting happened today until I got a call for an interview.  Let’s rewind to the beginning of the day first.  To start off the day my school was closed but that doesn’t help me out one bit because I am taking all online courses this semester.  After I woke up I had a really quick breakfast of waffles (trying to eat some of the processed foods in the house) and a banana.  Sorry there is no picture, I didn’t think it was that exciting so I forgot too.

After that I decided to work on some homework until it was lunch time.  Then I got a call for an interview I am going to on Wednesday.  I was not expecting an interview at all from this place.  I filled out the application around like Christmas time but they finally called and I just can’t wait.  I am hoping I get it because I need to get out of this house sometimes.

Dinner time came and went… I made some pierogies and green beans on the side.  Now I am just sitting here watching the rest of Pretty Little Liars and then I am going to get back to work on my homework. Night!!

Here we go again, More Snow!!  I thought this snow was over but of course I was wrong.  I am so ready to for some warm weather.  Those couple of days that it was 50 degrees was just trying there to tease us here in Michigan.  Also, all the snow had melted from our last snow storm and now look at it 😦

Anyway, for a late lunch (or maybe it was an early dinner) it was a great day to have pizza delivered to the house.  I was definitely not going to go driving in this weather.  It’s not that I mind driving in the snow it’s just everyone else driving also.  When the snow starts to fall for some reason people forget how to drive.  So, I am happy to stay in the house and keep warm!  Well, this American government paper I have to finish by Wednesday isn’t going to write itself so I am off to do just that.  Have a great night!

the most boring paper I have ever had to write.  I just can’t wait to be done with it but then I have more assignment that I have to do.  Anyway, nothing really exciting happened today.  I basically just sat around working on my paper and watching movies.  I watched Step Up, Step Up 2, Dirty Dancing, and Titanic.  Does anyone see a theme? Well except for the last one.. haha.  For lunch it was nothing too excited so I decided not to take a picture of it but I had a turkey dog and an orange.  The orange I had was so good, probably one of the best I have had in a long time.  After I ate lunch I decided to do some more work on my American Government midterm essay.

Around 8 I was starving and thought it would be a good idea to have some dinner.  I had…

pasta that was left over from yesterday, peas, tuna, dill and some mayo.  Well I am off to work on some more of my paper.  Night!!

Question:  What are some of your all time favorite movies?
