happy ttttttttuuuuesssdaaaayyyy!!!!!

I'm not sure why I'm in such a spunky mood today, but I am. Despite my horrible night of sleeping and the more than gloomy weather outside, I am just in such a GREEEEAAAT (tony the tiger anyone?) mood!

"t" for tuesday! :)

I had lots of snacks last night for a couple of reasons: 1) I had extra time on my hands (::gasp::) and had some sitting around time - which leads to eating!!!! :) 2) I ran 7 miles yesterday so I needed to fuel up even though I wasn't really hungry and 3) I just love food - no explanation needed.

One of these snacks included a homemade cereal concoction! I call it: Blueberry Muffin Crunch Cereal!

  • one toasted blueberry muffin (think warm and gooey)
  • handful of raisins
  • couple of figs cut up
  • blueberries
  • almonds and/or other nuts of choice
  • cinnamon
  • loads of almond milk



This morning I popped out of bed around 7 and was ready for some breakfast! It was a typical one but delicious nonetheless. I decided to add more toppings on it today to try and up the food intake (which I am always trying to do). I have been consciously eating more lately, but I lost weight. I think it's due to stress (hello wedding in 10 days and moving into new house in 4), but I think eating more will help.
Sometimes I just can't believe how much food I need to eat in order to sustain myself/maintain my weight because I eat so clean/healthy. You can eat so much! For example, on Sunday, my aunt and uncle came over for dinner and my aunt commented on my eating. She said, "my goodness you are like a vulture!!!" Yup!! Proud of it too! :)

Anyways, back to breakfast:

overnight oats topped with blueberries, raisins, chopped naner, coconut, cinnamon, and pb

you are so good to me
I SWEAR tomorrow and Friday (happy birthday to me!) will be different breakfasts. Kelsey and I have a virtual breakfast date on Friday, so expect to see the same food from us!
Have a great Tuesday lovies!


  1. Haha. People always comment on how much I eat too, and they usually can't believe it because I'm so thin... but that's what clean eating gets you, I suppose. That and extremely happy tastebuds and a satisfied tummy.

    Speaking of which... your blueberry muffin crunch concoction looks like it would rock my world. I'm trying that with banana bread stat.

  2. people say that about my eating too! i'm like eat healthy and you can eat A LOT more! i'm so glad your in a chipper mood..makes me wanta go run around the house or something. lol..OMG wedding??? 10 days. wow. I'm excited for you. :)

  3. That's awesome that you can eat a good amount and still be healthy! You go girl! haha

  4. Ha ha... ever since my training started, my hunger/need to consume a bit more has increased and sometimes I can't believe how much food I take in during the day!

    Not complaining, though... :)

    Send some of those good vibes my way, please! My still being tired combined with the overcast weather is making today a struggle... ugh!

  5. Woah, those cereal concoctions look yummy! I made a yogurt mess this morning much like your cereal one :)

    It's amazing how much more you need to eat when you eat fresh 85% of the time - I actually unintentionally lost weight when I started eating more veggies and fruits and now I'm having to scramble to gain it back! Wahoo, lots of food for moi!

  6. DAMN right we've got a date!! woot friday date night girl! haha im loving ur excited mood, it literally jumps out through the page :)

    enjoy ur gorgeous tuesday, gorgeous girlie!


  7. Loving that blueberry muffin snack! That looks so good!

    Try not to stress too much....you are going to have a blast moving into a new house and getting married!
