A New Favorite

When I pulled in the driveway tonight at 7:10, I had a list in my head of things I wanted to accomplish before the night was over. Cleaning was one... starting to pack was two.... I have now done neither of those things and it's 10:10.

I had ab/core class from 6-7.. I was feeling pretty good, but considering my lack of workouts lately, I was not wanting to move. I sat in the car until almost 7:30.... well - that was a little less than productive. I finally managed to move from the car to the house... took laundry out of the dryer and then started to watch Biggest Loser.

It took me 45 to realize I hadn't eaten dinner yet and was quite hungry. So I searched a bit for a different tuna salad recipe and came upon this. A. MAZ. ING.  I added a couple of my own ingredients


2 whole-wheat pitas
1 can tuna canned in water without salt
Lemon juice from 2 wedges
2 tsps olive oil
1/2 small onion diced (purple or red onion adds color)
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1 tbsp chopped parsley
Salt and pepper

I also added a dash of dill relish for more color.

I also added a wedge of laughing cow cheese, creamy swiss. I warmed the tortilla for 20 seconds and then spread the cheese. I have to tell you, I felt so GOOD about this meal. I didn't want to eat crap or have a chip chaser, so I just had the wrap and sucked on my water.

The fitsugar.com website said the two pitas were 391 calories and 38.6 carbs. That's something I can deal with AND feel good about!!

Ahhh ... and a trip

Aahhhh... fabulous Saturday of spoiling myself.

I haven't had a mani or a pedi in eons... felt so good!! CJ is leaving for San Diego on Monday. I'm flying out on Thursday and then we fly home together on Sunday. I'm so looking forward to it as I've never been there. If you know me at all, you know I'll be using the opportunity to knock out 3 more baseball stadiums... Anaheim Angels, San Diego Padres, and LA Dodgers. Wooot!!!

I told CJ that I wanted to drive through Beverly Hills before we leave... I think it's a flashback from 90210. ;)

Last Saturday in February

Here's how it works: describe your life -or something- in six words. Explain or don't, either way, have fun! Visit Cate at Show My Face to read all about it and get started! :)

There's a pedi calling my name!

Free Saturday? Yup!! I think pedi, shopping, and lunch on the plaza. :)

Handing God the Pen

I'm a little late in writing this, but...

January's book of the month was When God Writes Your Love Story by Eric and Leslie Ludy. I must say - I was a little hesitant at first. I had been wanting to read it for quite some time, and was scared it was going to let me down.

I won't tell the entire book, there has to be SOME mystery. There were points that made me think, "Act/speak like your future spouse is watching you." Wow. It definitely made me think before spouting off at the mouth!!

There are things that some Christian author's talk about - especially when it comes to kissing, making out, etc., that not everyone can understand. If you're waiting until you get married to have sex, and that's your weakness - making out may not be the brightest idea. Stay away from the temptations because the devil knows where you're weak and he will attack you there.

I loved the fact that a husband and wife wrote the book. Eric wrote parts and Leslie wrote parts so you got both perspectives about how they felt and what they experienced. It wasn't just another feel good self-help book. As a single girl, it gave me a tad more hope and just a little peace about how God is working in my life. :)

February's book of the month is kinda long... and I haven't been reading a lot - so it might take up two months. Then again - I just gave up facebook for lent, so I'll probably be reading more. ;)

Love you guys!
Until next time ~

Poke Me in the Eye

Have you ever had your eyes dilated?
I had not, until today. Let me say, it was... weird. Close up vision stinks and everything is brighter than normal. For my lovely eyes that have these pockets (not what the doctor called them, but I can't remember the word)... that were all dilated, everything was 10x. Yikes!!! I picked out some new glasses - which I'm super excited to get!! Doc checked my eyes after a few minutes and didn't see anything wrong that would correlate with diabetes. So that was a plus.

I came home and sat in my dark bedroom, not being able to text or anything because I couldn't read...


Obviously, my eyesight has returned to normal. :) Over the weekend I finished January's book of the month. I'll blog about that tomorrow.

Goodnight, friends! How are you ending the day?
