There was a two month period when Ryan and I would eat tacos at least one time a week. We became a little obsessed with the ease of crock pot chicken tacos and made the yummy meal over and over again.

What meal do you make over and over again?

After a brief hiatus, the tacos made a return last Friday, and we were reminded of how tasty those lil’ tortilla and hard shell delights really are.

Tonight tacos made another appearance and were just as delicious as ever!

I opted for a ginormous taco salad tonight consisting of taco-seasoned chicken, shredded ice berg lettuce, a sliced plum tomato, salsa and two crumbled hard shell tacos.

Fiesta for my Mouth

Stirred Up


After dinner, I had a couple small handfulls of glazed pecans for dessert. Pecans are my favorite nut and when they’re glazed, they taste that much better. Get in mah belly!

Ryan will enjoy his dinner and dessert after his soccer game tonight. Cross your fingers for a win!

I’m off to catch up with some of my girlfriends via the ol’ cell phone before settling down to read Wicked and hanging out with Ryan when he gets back.

F-R-I-D-A-Y tomorrow! Woop, woop!

Working Lunch

I had take out lunch today because we had a manager’s meeting at my work and had food delivered from Pom Pom’s Teahouse & Sandwicheria.

It was great because they took everyone’s individual order rather than ordering a bunch of food for all of us to share. I love selecting my own food and jumped at the chance to enjoy a fresh lunch.

I chose the “create your own salad” option and though I didn’t get the chance to snap a picture, I’ll take you through the contents of my salad:

Swiss Cheese


Creamy Basil Dressing

It was tasty!

I really loved my salad but was pretty jealous of one of my coworker’s sandwiches. He ordered Mama Ling Ling’s Thanksgiving sandwich which came loaded with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and gravy to dip the sandwich in. I wish I would’ve noticed that on the menu!

Why I Love My Friends

I got a wonderful email from my friend Merri today detailing her fantastic lunch.

Just a simple lunch of 1,463 calories…

*Great email, huh? 😀

Day of the Week Rankings

Good morning and happy Friday eve! 🙂

Yesterday Ryan and I were discussing how each day of the week feels. Here’s my rating (5 stars is the best):

  • Monday: **
  • Tuesday: *
  • Wednesday: ***
  • Thursday: ****
  • Friday: *****
  • Saturday: *****
  • Sunday: ****

Days of the Week

Yes, I actually ranked Tuesdays worse than Mondays… I always feel fresh on Mondays and then Tuesday is when the “blah” feeling kicks in. Thankfully it’s all up from there! 🙂

What is your favorite day of the week?

I am inclined to say Saturday, but honestly I’ve always loved Fridays. Even though I have to go to work, everyone is generally in a good mood and I love the excitement and anticipation of a fun weekend ahead.


Today’s cardio workout was a goodie!

I followed a 25 minute treadmill workout I clipped out of Oxygen Magazine a few months ago.

25 Minute Treadmill Training

I made a couple of modifications, like only bringing the incline down to one, not zero, and warming up/cooling down at a 4.0 pace rather than a 3.5 pace.

After the 25 minute treadmill fun, I walked for another 10 minutes on an incline before finishing up with 15 minutes on the elliptical.


Chocolate attack!

Chocolate Delight

Today my breakfast was a bowl of chocolate goodness:

Thursday's Breakfast

As Dale from Doug would say, “Yum, yum, eat ’em up!” Yes, I did just reference a classic Nickelodeon show. Doug was the best!
