Accidentally & finally

I finally went to yoga. Not on purpose, but when I have to go about 45 mins to ONE HOUR early to get my hand stamped for TurboKick, I decided why not make it at 8:30 for yoga as well.

Lunch involved hard-boiled egg whites. There’s so much more volume in a hard-boiled egg. I fed the yolks to the dogs.



Then I picked up American Thighs and decided that I DID NOT LIKE ALL OF THE CAPITALIZATION. It was random and constant.

Instead, I started reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. A few pages into it, I thought to myself, haven’t I read this before? Yep. I found the page I dog-eared and it was quite far into the book. Duh.

This is going to be a quick book! 🙂

Afterwards, we headed to Costco. We got shampoo and samples of lots of meat.

Then I decided to return some books and get a couple of history books and movies.

My cousin got some fro-yo. I ate a little bit of honeydew yogurt.

I showered and ended my attempt to go to the gym at night for my knee’s sake.

While my cousin is watching “Stuart Little,” I’m going to have my green juice and then go buy supplies for more green juices: apples and cukes are out. :/

Dinner: rotisserie chicken shredded with some tomatoes, spicy mustard, and guac hummus to make a chicken salad



Books I’d like to get to soon:

  • Room

  • Life of Pi

  • Middlesex
  • One Hundred Years of Solitude

How many things

1 step n’ sculpt class enjoyed. I liked alternating between stepping and sculpting rather than attempting to do both. 🙂 I was also rocking stepping, which hasn’t been typical here. Next week, I’m taking this class again!

2 loaves of healthy/low cal carbs purchased. I bought lite English muffins and Western Alternative sweet wheat bagel. My little cousin has been sharing my English muffins and my other cousin asked for healthier bagels so I delivered.

2 white peaches bought + 1 pluot to try. I never liked nectarines, but since I get to taste them at the farmer’s markets, I’ve become a bit addicted. They’re so easy. On my way home from the store, I stopped by Smith Farms to nab a couple of peaches. I’ve been itching to try pluots due to Live Laugh Eat’s immense love for them and finally got one. Saving the peaches for another day and having a pluot later! 🙂 Maybe Allie’s favorite guava another day – I’ve never had them. So much to be discovered.


Same lunch from yesterday. Chicken breast marinated with something my cousin made with a lite English muffin and pumpkin + Tofutti cream cheese. 🙂 Everyone has been posting pumpkin recipes lately and I can still taste that pumpkin pie cupcake from the other day. Mmm.


7 receptionist jobs applied for.

Fat Girl’s Guide to Life finished. I’ve been reading so slowly that I can’t wait to delve into a new book. I got American Thighs so maybe that.

60 minutes of napping. My body or well, my shoulders are sore from sculpting. I’ve been a tad lazy and not working out twice a day, but I’m going with it because heck, I work out a lot.

1 green juice ready for consumption.

45 minute bike ride on the horizon.
