confessions of a foodaholic

sharing my life through food

being grateful

on January 13, 2012

today nutritionally was a little up and down

i’ve discovered that when i don’t plan out my week’s meal plan

i go off track pretty quickly

and now that i’m back in school, i have to really start planning

since two nights a week i’ll be gone from home from 8am until 9:30pm

planning is key

so…how’d my day look?


oatmeal made with almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and a teaspoon of biscoff spread

1 egg, over easy

coffee with almond toffee creamer

might i add, breakfast was deliciously awesome!


by the time i got to work a few hours later i wasn’t overly hungry, but def in the mood to chew

so i munched on some garlic parmesan pretzel crisps

work then became incredibly hectic, and i didn’t get a chance to eat for another 4 hours


at this point, i was starving

i ordered a large salad and piece of cheese pizza from the pizza place upstairs

nothing too amazing, but it satiated my hunger


a few hours later i was feeling a little drowsy, so i brewed another cup of coffee

now i’m home, and i know i should eat something green, but there’s nothing in the house

it’s that time of the week to go grocery shopping, and i haven’t planned a thing yet

tomorow is going to be one crazy day

i have my NLN exam in the morning (neeeeeed to pass this to get into nursing school!)

then back to Willi to work

and then back to school to Micro lab

(my teacher, by the way, is AHMAZING!)

i have a feeling that after this class i’m going to want to work in infectious diseases! 

so, tying back into the title of this post, one of my goals for 2012 is to be more grateful

so often, it’s easy to focus on what’s going wrong in life

however, i want to try to start focusing on the positive

so what am i grateful for today?

1. sleeping in until 7:30 am! it was much needed

2. getting my nursing application submitted before the deadline

3. having an awesome microbiology teacher

4. coming home to two puppies who love me

5. green and black’s hot chocolate

6. psych…this show cracks me up

7. my husband is feeling better!!

so with that, i’ll leave you with some pictures

i’ve been trying to get more into photoblogging what i’m eating/doing

pardon the poor quality, i’m still learning 😉

 Just for your entertainment, here’s my handsome man Bishop! He’s getting so white!!

and this is my other handsome man D’argo! don’t trust that innocent face!!
