If ya like it then you better put a ring on it..

Hey Hey!
I've broken down this post into sections!  Have fun!

So...very productive day!  As I previously stated...my clothes have been feeling tight..so I decided to go for a nice hilly run. O.M.G. So.Hard.

I have run these hills (florida hills lol) before and part of my half marathon ran over these "inclines".  But seriously...I don't know if it's Jillian or what but my legs were hating me.  I ran about .75 miles..yes POINT 75...and had to stop and stretch.  Then at about 3.3 I had to stop again after conquering a huge hill to stretch.  THEN at 4.0 I had to stop and walk .1 and then ran the rest of the .6 home.  Needless to say..I feel great HAHA!

I was really slow though but oh well.

Time- 49:02
Distance- 4.66 miles

I have so much respect for you hilly runners.

Before I ran I had half a whole wheat bagel.  When I got back I had some gatorade (I was out of coco water!!) the other half of the bagel with egg whites, 1/2 slice of gouda and a banana.  YUM.

about 10 almonds

Oh lunch.  I love fish.  I could never eat meat again as long as I had fish.  So..I made a fish taco with
  • tilapia baked in the oven
  • 1/4 mashed avocado
  • red onion
  • tomato
  • lettuce
  • whole grain wrap
with some Vanilla Okios and strawberries.  SO FILLING.

Kind of looks like frosting...or ice cream...or whipped cream...alas, it's yogurt..

As you all know, everyone in my life is getting in engaged.  Tonight was my friend Beka's engagement dinner (not a real one, just a "i want to try on your ring, tell me the story again and again" one).  So before dinner I held myself over with a nice ApplePie Larabar...and for dinner we went to 

SWAMP.  If you have ever been to Gainesville, you have been here.  New menu...still good.

I got the shrimp salad with:
  • grilled shrimp ( kinda measly.. but tasty)
  • roasted red peppers
  • corn
  • black beans
  • mixed cheese

honestly, it didn't even need dressing. I also stole a few sweet potato fries..that counts as healthy..right?

Starving after dinner.  Apparently I had a black hole for stomach so I had some flax cereal, raisins and skim milk :)  Heaven.


Here is the Bride to Be!  Doesn't she look so happy! Don't I look so jealous?!

The Girlies.

Did anyone hear that LuAnn from Real Housewives was getting divorced?!!?  Keep your ears open...pretty sure the Countess just lost her title!!

Also, head over to Ryan's site...she is hosting a vegan challange for the month of April!  I am going to try to do a few days of vegan eating this month.  I'll let you know when!


  1. Love the engagement dinner photos! I hate hills too and avoid them as much as possible!

  2. Is flax cereal tasty?? Or, is it more like cardboard?? I like Fiber-One which is very high in fiber, slightly sweet and made with Neutrasweet. It is filling and low in calories.

  3. Yes. I really like the flax cereal and it does not contain any artificial sweetners!

  4. Your fish taco looks awesome...do you put any spices on the tilapia before putting it in the oven or do you pretty much eat it plain? I never know how to season my fish which is probably why I don't eat it that much!

  5. Well, I smashed up an avocado which had A TON of flavor!! I just put some salt and pepper on the fish and baked it for about 10min..it was soo good. If I am just eating the fish alone, I'll sautee it in olive oil, add some lemon and spice (like creole seasoning)...the other night I put sweet thai chili sauce on it! You can always marinate it in dressing too :)

  6. I LOVE coco water. It totally saved me when I tried Bikram Yoga for the first time!

  7. I'll try the Vegan challenge with you next week! Not sure how long I'll last, but it will be fun to try for awhile.

  8. Thanks for the tips on the fish! I think I'm going to try something similiar this week. I've been craving tilapia since reading this lol...that pretty much NEVER happens.

  9. Put it in a taco type thing..I guarantee you'll love it!!! Let me know how it is!

    Yay Shaef!! Vegan Week Here we Come! Starting Monday.

    Fitchic-- I want to do Bikram!! But I'm scared!
