Omelet Bomb

What up! It’s Monday again. The weeks just go by SO fast for me. Each time it’s Monday again I’m amazed.

But I’m here to tell you about Sunday. Trusting my body, I decided against my morning run for my hip’s sake and instead had a leisurely morning of reading The Girl Who Plated with Fire (obsessed) and doing a couple loads of laundry.

Once I worked up an appetite, the husband and I went to our favorite breakfast place in town, Wild Berries:

Wild Berries serves up fresh and delicious breakfasts – and their omelet’s are the bomb!

Though this tempted me…

I stuck with my tried and true veggie omelet…

which was as big as my head! Seriously! But there omelets are the bomb – SO dang good. Plus a side of fruit – and a couple bites of Shane’s pancakes. I probably got through 2/3 the omelet before throwing in the towel  napkin. haha

Wild Berries also has a sweet coffee/smoothie bar in the middle of the restaurant and mile long list of shakes/smoothies/coffee drinks. Although I just stuck with coffee and half and half, I got a little excited when I spotted a couple sexy Vita-Mixes:

Oooh yeah 😉 bahah

It was nice to have a relaxing breakfast out for a change. Between my weekend runs, training clients, and being out of town on weekends, we hardly get a chance to do it, but it was quite nice! Plus, this breakfast kept me full for a good five hours, clearly.

I think I’m still full…

Ok we know that’s a lie 😉

Well I’m off for an easy four miler + some ab work! Hopefully the body will cooperate with me this time 🙂

What do you usually order when out for breakfast? I’m usually an omelet girl – just because I rarely make omelets at home. I’m horrible at it!!

Veggies Give you Wings!

Happy Friday, Bloggy Friends!! 😀 My Friday has buzzed by, as it always does, but I’ve got a lot done so far.

Lately I’ve been noticing I haven’t been getting as many veggies in my diet as I should be, so I’m making eating vegetables a priority. Additionally, I feel as though I get way too much sugar in my daily diet. If you take a look at a typical day of eats, nearly all of my snacks are sweet rather than savory, same with breakfast, and most of the time with lunch. If I incoporate more veggies, I’ll bet it will make my sugar stats plummet:) And I really think having too much sugar yesterday made my run go to the pot. Although, I bet if anyone could sweeten up veggies, it’d be me. Mmm carrot cake anyone? Kidding, kidding 😉

With that said, I woke up today and made a delicious green monster!!

It contained:

  • spinach
  • Greens + Superfood
  • 1 organic carrot
  • half a frozen banana
  • ice, water

It was scrumptious! I found this combination staved off my hunger longer than my typical green monsters do for some reason. I didn’t even mosey on over to the cafeteria at work until 8:30! Usually I’m there and eating by 7:30 😀

And instead of my usual sweet bowl of cereal or oats, I opted for a veggie omelet!

Along side was a piece of whole wheat toast with strawberry preserves.

The omelet was made with All-Eggs, mushrooms, onions, tomatos, green pepper and cheese. It was sooo good, and whatdya know? Kept me fuller longer!

I did end up having a snack around 10:45 before I left for the day. I had a facial afterward, and didn’t want my tummy grumbling while I was trying to pass out relax. So I had a bowl of 0% fage with blueberries, and a vitamuffin top!

I used this Vita Top, which was SO much better than the chocolate peanut butter fudge one I had yesterday.

I really, really liked this flavor. Hopefully I can find them somewhere around here soon!!

My facial was amaaazing. It was an Aveda Relaxing Facial, and my salon has a special on them this month by giving their customers %20 off. Since I can’t refuse a bargain, when my hair stylist asked me, I said, “signb me up!” It was pretty much the shiz. Afterward, I took my clean (and bare) face to Fresh Market to get next week’s groceries:

I’ve done a total 180 on saying I wouldn’t buy produce here. It really isn’t more expensive, and it’s SO fresh, and doesn’t all come from Mexico.

Then I had to make a pit-stop at Kroger to get a couple staple items that I knew for sure would be more expensive at FM, like zip lock bags and a couple other items.

Continuing my quest for increasing my veggie quota, I set out to make a veggie-filled lunch.

It started with some homemade hummus, layered with spinach and tomatoes, sprouts, cucumbers, and avocado:


In a wrap, of course!

It was a wee too big for the wrap, but don’t you worry, I managed just fine 😉

Along side was a sliced Pink Lady apple with some Barney Butter:


But the Barney Butter wasn’t what I chose at first. I was going to eat the Cinnamon Swirl Peanut Butter first:

But…The Barney Butter had 6 less grams of sugar, so I opted for that. Plus, with apples, you really don’t need flavored nut butters in my opinion.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to become some sugar gram counting freak 😉 I’ve just noticed it’s something I need to pay attention to a little more, and if it’s affecting my running and energy levels, it needs to be a priority.

Speaking of running, I’m so pumped for my race tomorrow morning!! My dad’s going to be in Morton tonight, so he’s picking my packet up for me and meeting me at the race tomorrow. I have an all out fan club that will be rooting me on! My mom, dad, hubski, BFF, and BFF’s mom are coming. And, the race is at 7:30 a.m!! These are some pretty special people I have in my life 😉

Tonight I’m going out to dinner with thte girls for one their birthdays at a place called, Biaggi’s, then I’m coming straight home to prep for the morning, so there might not be another post before the race. We’ll see though – I love writing out all my thoughts and nerves to you guys before a good race!!

I hope all of you have an awesome Friday night!

Do you feel like you get “too much” of something in your day-to-day eats?

What are your plans for the night?

Sunday Funday

If your definition of Funday=having an old school One Tree Hill marathon with your hubski, at least! Ah, lazy Sundays. We always have at least one Sunday a month where we lay in the basement and do nothing but watch movies/shows on the projector alll day long.

Part of the reason today’s so lazy is because of last night! My friend had a (costume themed) birthday party. Shane and I went as a hula girl and cabana boy.

Even her dog, Oscar got in on the fun!

I forgot to take a picture of Shane in his costume, though 😦 It was a lot of fun. Grilling, friends, yard games, oh, and beer (hence the lazy day.) Yes, I was a wee bit hungover when I woke up. Not horrible, but not feeling in tip top shape. Luckily, I planned my rest day as today, with that in mind. Since the party was about an hour away, we ended up staying there, and just came home this morning.

I forgoed the McDonalds when Shane stopped there to get a couple breakfast sandwhiches for himself (his hangover cure) and made a nice yummy breakfast when we got home. I made a spinach and cheese omelet

some flax bread with almond butter

and a green monster which entailed: 2 cups of spinach, a granny smith apple, a frozen banana, almond milk, and a carrot
The color turned out bright green once again. And it was very good, and I swear it cured my hangover!
Yumtopia!

This held me over until close to dinner time, when we decided to order some Chinese (which always happens on the lazy Sunday.) I got my usual – broccoli and chicken hot and spicy. A little bit later, I was craving something sweet, and remembered I got this at the grocery store the other day:
There’s only five ingredients in it! It was very very good, and satisfied my sweet tooth for sure.

Ok, now back to Sunday Funday, and yet another epi of OTH! I hope everyone had a great weekend 😀
