sasha and peanut butter jelly time.

ryan is still away.

the good news is, i have been getting a lot of my sasha time in.

thursday she came over after work and alice was more than ecstatic to see her..

this was her within a minute of sash sitting down:

..the girl¬†doesn’t¬†waist any time.

sasha and i had a very nice date out to sushi!

i have been craving sushi and italian food all week!

pretty much simultaneously. this helped for a moment..the craving comes right back though..

when we got home i made us desert:

in sasha’s

  • almond butter
  • bran cereal-total bran/weetibix

it had been way..to long. it was absolutely fantastic.

i sent rye a good morning kiss.

have i showed you these lemons? lululemons ūüôā (please pardon the messy bathroom!)

getting to the gym was really hard and once i finished cardio and only one weight machine i was done!

i got home and couldnt even get myself to shower before crashing on the couch.

dave wasted no time in taking that opportunity for cuddle time, alice was hard at work on a bone:

i took all of these photos for rye..even one of my bachelorette house keeping skills….

and one of my sleepy face with bags under my eyes..:(

sasha came over again ūüôā

we watched 127 hours..i thought it was really good!….not to mention upsetting…. the movie was really well done and captivating especially¬†considering¬†it took place almost in one location the entire movie.

for dinner i made broiled cheese bread and veggies:

(have i mentioned these are inspired by “http://www.peanutbutterrunner.com/” blog’s, i really love her blog and these are great! just put on your¬†desirables¬†and stick them under the broiler for about 6 min. give or take….but watch them, they will burn before you know it! trust….i know from¬†experience.)

for the cheesy toast:

  • la brea bakery multi grain
  • spinach
  • greens
  • alfalfa¬†sprouts
  • raw mushrooms
  • veganese
  • dijon mustard

  • 1 toast con colby jack cheese
  • ūüėČ

dessert we had mini chocolate cheesecakes from whole foods, i put it on a plate over a little¬†dollop¬†of whipped cream with a¬†piece¬†of xo dark chocolate with cherries….the cheesecake wasn’t as great as i thought.. ūüė¶ )

alice and dave were adorable! and being snuggle bunnies:

i love that trio.

junkie sunday

enjoying coffee and breakfast at home is truly a peaceful and joyous occassion for me..

this weekend i was a bachelorette.

i awoke at 3:45 to drive rye to his departing destination.

i was back at home and asleep again by 4:30.

the feeling of going back to sleep when the night was still dark and the air was still cold,

and getting into that cozy bed,

was unexplainably wonderful.

when i awoke around 9,

i made some successful coffee:

i started on my homework around 10:30 and hardly had time to eat any breakfast!

i decided it was time to take a break and eat something when noon was nearing.

i didnt even have time to put any thought or time into something memorable.

it was decent but nothing special.

  • 365 honey morning o’s
  • fiber cereal
  • chia/fiber mix
  • almond butter
  • pear
  • unsweetened van. alm. milk

my cousin sent me the cutest picture ever of her inspired oats in a marmalade jar:

i continued on with my homework and worked dilegently until 2 and needed another break!!

i went for a quick workout and before i knew it i was back to work again..

i called it a day around 5 and threw down the rest of the salad from the ramen night before my night out with some co-workers:

i ate it so quickly i almost forgot to take a picture:

it was a fun night! we went to a bar called carbon in century city.

a bit to loud for my comfort but fun.

i was out until 2!! i cannot remember the last time i was awake at 2 much less out.

as you can imagine i had been drinking and arrived home with the munchies.

i hadnt eaten much all day, i had a few bites of sushi that was left over at a friends before the bar but that was dinner along with the rest of that salad.

on the way home they stopped and got jack in the box….i did not participate..

i made myself the most delicious grilled cheese!!

2:30 in the morning and i was happily eating a grilled cheese….who was that person?

ps for dessert i had some honey morning o’s. then i was off to bed.

Sunday was a quiet, homework, laundry lounge day.

alice, dave and i missed ryan.

alice got me up around 10 for a walk. i was very thankful to her.

another delicious coffee at home time!

see what happens when ryan is away….:

i wasnt very hungry after my late snacking saturday night after the bar.

after a work out and around 2 all i wanted was a salmon veggie salad!

i was really trying to want something breakfast-y and sweet but it just wasnt for me..

this was amazing.

i worked on it while i worked on an essay.

i was a fast food junkie for dinner:  

i added a few special touches to my ramen:

i discovered this new vodka..

i never like vodka but this is fantastic!

it¬†it absolute “wild tea”, mix it with¬†tonic water and a slice of lime….its so good.¬†

 

ps did i mention what my wonderful man brought me before he left!:

you make me coffee, i make you breakfast.

ok, now this is a special coffee..

look at that:

he says he makes them with love..that would explain it.

i stayed in bed and did homework and indulged in my beautfiul warm drink, in my cozy warm bed, with my cute warm dog cuddled under the covers with me, for quite some time.

as i made my way out of bed to start some breakfast i found this:

isnt he cute?.. (xbox)

he makes me coffees, i make us breakfast, its our sunday tradition.

these..amazing! really though..so good.

my guy is an egg guy.

i started like this: (ps isnt my new cutting board gorgeous?!)

i added some butter to a hot pan.

sizzleeee, sizzleeeeee, sizzzzzlleeeeee

in went to eggs:

i readied this, it was destined to be toasted:

add spinach:

presto!

um..mom wheres mine?

i didnt forget the kids!

they get special sunday breakfast too:

she was very pleased:

i attempted to recreate the berries and cream like yesterday..but i was out of vanilla protein..

i failed..it was really nothing to brag about:

it really had good potential! but it was lacking the vanilla/cream aspect.

the highlight was really the almond butter and granola..

rye and i had a really good workout!

he burned 1000 calories! whoa! i was super proud.

i had a good balance of cardio, legs and abs but my arms were very soar.

thats me, and you can see rye behind me in the blue:

dinner wasnt to exciting. leftover pizza from saturday and a yummy salad i made.

lets have a great week!

berries and cream smoothie

 

saturday morning, a glorious morning of sleeping in.

my coffee wasnt so exciting,

i made it:

ryan¬†was off to work early so i had to fend for myself…

it was good, just not special.

my breakfast however….

now that was incredible!

i woke up with a smoothie in mind.

i knew it was what i had to do.

so after my workout..a really good one might i add!

i got to work on this:

i call it the berries and cream! or..the berries with green ūüėČ

ok so the color does not justice but it was incredible!

a true winner:

  

the berries and cream:

  • 1/4 greek yogurt
  • about 2.5 handfuls of organic spinach
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter
  • 5 frozen large organic strawberries
  • 1/3 cup organic frozen blueberries-i threw in a few fresh too..just had them on hand
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey¬†(i¬†like jay robb¬†or biochem) protein powder

blend blend blend and then add 3 ice cubes, a little water give or take..i like mine really thick, then blend a bit more and..tadah!! delicious!!

i was off to school for some math lab..incredibly happy with my smoothie in hand..

my arms were shaky from all the weights that morning. i was pleased…but a lil shaky….

 

school..i was here for 3 hours..

isnt the library beautiful!

 

breakfast sundae

this morning was another day of not zz’s for me’s.

i had a meeting at work..it is my day off..it was at 5:30am

needless to say i had another day like yesterday..

zombie-ish feelings..

no getting back to sleep..

i had a very nice 30 min. cardio workout that i was quite proud of myself for..it was a toughy

after lounging and coffee sipping from my guy..it was a truly a fancy indulging one:

i started some laundry and got my breakfast goin on..

i wanted to get in some greens..

  • little less than 1/2 a organic pear
  • 1 kiwi
  • handful of organic spinach
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut butter
  • little over a tablespoon of organic raw honey
  • tiny bit of water
  • blend away

from a hovering giants point of view:

i didnt want to combine the smoothie with yogurt,

because i still enjoy the texture of the yogurt at its natural state.

so i layered the two:

 

  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • little bit of smoothie
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • more smoothie

topped with:

  • natures path vanilla almond granola
  • organic blueberries
  • a little organic pear
  • a little almond/peanut butter

it was a beauty

from an indulging point of view:

i watched the runaways and browsed bloggers..the runaways..not so good..

ps: star fruit of the day: KIWI

i learned that the seeds actually have omega 3 fatty acids in them..along with plenty of good stuff; vitamins.. minerals. very neat.

i found this awsome blog that taught me such a thing:
