Bacon Ranch Pringles, my three favorite things in one...well, they don't make Boobies Facebook Pringles but this is good enough.

 It's hot! That's all I'm going to say about that.

Smoothie (with frozen blueberries, 3 tablespoons yogurt, 1/2 cup skim milk and one scoop of Amazing Grass berry flavor drink powder)
3/4 cup Raisin Bran with 1% milk

My workout for today was 30 minutes on the cross trainer, a 45 minute spin class and 1 hour of vinyasa yoga

Grapes, a whole wheat wrap (with brown rice, salsa, white beans and grilled chicken) and MORE SALSA :D

After work snack:
One of the peanut butter cookies I made the other day. Superrrr.

Turkey burger on a whole wheat bun with fresh spinach, tomato, ketchup, avocado and bacon!
 I'm not even going to try and kid myself, I love bacon. The only thing I love more than bacon is more bacon. It was amazing.

I just built a working catapult. It's designed as a chair, which tends to throw a lot of people.

Oh hellooooo! Long time no... food blog? Yeah.
I think the main reason I stopped food blogging for a bit was not only was it time consuming (and I am super lazy), but I was afraid of being pretentious. Or seeming pretentious. Which is crazy because I thoroughly enjoy  reading food blogs (especially Rebeccas, I read hers daily and enjoy it so much!) and think they are a fabulous concept. But I doubted my own food blogging, I guess. I think I have this person in my head that's constantly screaming WHO THE FUCK CARES and she's a pain in my ass.
WELL, I care about what I eat and I'm going to give this food blogging thing another go, and I hope I stick with it because it's a huge motivator and really helps me keep track of what I'm eating.


I guess I should give a quick update?
-I've still been losing weight and I'm hovering around 140 now (typically between 139-142). I like the fact that it's taken me around 3 years to lose 43 pounds because I know I've done it through lifestyle changes that ensure I'm not going to gain it back.
-I started working out daily. I don't go all out every day but I feel that it's important to get my butt moving for at least an hour every day. Right now I'm logging around 8-13 hours a week at the gym, including non-aerobic classes like yoga and pilates.
-I start the Undergraduate program in Speech Disorders at Mercy College in the fall. WOO!
-I am being weaned off Metformin after taking it for 4 years. Which is a really big deal to me! That means I've managed my weight enough to have control over my PCOS symptoms.

1 egg, 1 egg white, 1 medium tomato and 1/4 cup of oats with 1tsp of honey

More like BESTfast, amirite???

I then drank a gallon of coffee and headed off to the gym for 1 hour of kickboxing, 30 minutes on the cross-trainer and 30 minutes on the stair master.

Small whole wheat burrito (with black beans, brown rice, salsa, avocado and grilled chicken) lettuce and MORE SALSA (yay!)
I feel that shoving things I enjoy into a burrito is the best and easiest way to make a meal.

My after work snack:
It's a blurry nectarine because I absolutely could not get my camera to take a not awful picture (it was totally drinking Hennessy while I was at work) and I got fed up so there ya go.

Lasagna (made with whole wheat pasta, skim ricotta cheese, spinach, basil, garlic and tomato), garlic bread and some salad.

I should probably note that I began taking calcium and multivitamin supplements every day, although I won't be including pictures of them in my posts.
