Staying True...

Two days of blogging in a row! How fun :-) and this time I have pictures!! Woo Hoo!

Yesterday was pretty darn good. Last night I went grocery shopping with my cousin and sister and got some chicken breasts, asparagus, lentils, a 6-pack of V8 cans and 4 Fruit2Day juices. (Love these things! If you haven't tried them yet, definitely do!) Then I went out with my friend Tyler to dinner at Red Robin. It was tempting but I drank WATER and had a SALAD. How fun! I was really proud of myself. I got the Apple Harvest Chicken Salad, which was absolutely divine! I ate a little over half and saved the rest for lunch today. Lunch today was

a Garden Vegetable Boca burger,

1/2 of my salad from last night

and a little Toblerone from my co-worker for desert :-)

I did have a piece of pizza for breakfast though, which isn't all that great but I tried to pick the smallest piece possible. Tonight I'm going to whip up a couple of chicken breasts and cook some lentils and asparagus for dinner and lunch for the rest of the week. Food has been very good and rather easy when I actually put in the effort.

Last night my sister and I went to the gym at about 9:30. For weight lifting, I focused on legs. I pushed my legs pretty hard but looking back on it, I feel as though I could have pushed them harder. Next time I will remember this. I also did light triceps, shoulders, lower abs and obliques. After that was done I hopped on the stationary bike for 40 minutes. I left there suuuuper tired but feeling really good. We have plans to go again tonight but at 8 instead of 9 cause we didn’t get home until midnight last night!

I'm very excited because today after work I get to go check out a Hummer Limo that I'm going to rent for my friend and I's 21st bday dinner on October 9th. (My actual bday is the 17th and hers is the 10th) I wanted the Escalade Limo that they had but it got rented before I had a chance to snatch it up. Oh well, I think the Hummer will be just as nice. Also, here are a couple pictures of dresses that I've picked out to try to fit into by the dinner. My #1 choice is the black and pink one. Which one do you guys like the most?

Now, I'd like to introduce you to a good friend of mine: my water bottle. LOVE this water bottle! Basically because it has a straw but also because it holds about 28oz of water, it's BPA free even though it's plastic and it has a double wall so it never sweats! I drink about 3-4 of these a day but lately I've been lacking and only drinking about 1 1/2. I definitely need to step this up asap.

Alright, that's it for today. Have a wonderful night everyone. Big Brother tomorrow!! (Last night's episode was AMAZING!)


  1. LOVE the pink & black one! You'll look gorgeous. Have fun!

  2. For what it's worth, I think the black is the best choice and I'm sure you will really lovely.

    Good luck with your goals, and no worries. You CAN be the person you want to be.

    Take care and best wishes.

    :-) :-).
