Eats And Excuses

Hey y’all.

Hope you all had a great weekend and for you mama’s out there…a great Mothers Day!

I spent the morning at church with Kevin and his parents followed by lunch at Ruby Tuesday’s.  It was really nice to spend time with them.  In the afternoon we picked up a party platter from Jimmy John’s and met my mom and her boyfriend at the Ledges.  We had a great time!

photo(8)So I have been making a lot of excuses…about my poor eating and lack of consistency in working out.  Wanna hear some?

1.  I can’t make it to Crossfit because there is an ambulance on my road.

2.  I don’t want to be a calorie counter.  I should eat what makes me happy.

3.  My workout buddy isn’t coming today…I don’t want to go to Crossfit without her.

4.  I am sore.  I need to rest just one more day.

5.  My back hurts

6.  I had a bad day.  Fro-yo is the only thing that will make me feel better.

7.  I don’t eat chips very often so I should eat half of this bag.


Good gravy I stink.  Time to get back on track.  I have been slacking a bit and I don’t like what I see in that picture of me at the Ledges.  Just needed that visual to remind myself what I am working hard for.

Here are some of my recent eats…not bad at all but just eating it in horrible quantities 😉

photoThis smoothie was the best.  Full of fresh pineapple and coconut butter….yum!

photo(1)I had a coupon that made these just $.75.  They were okay but Baby Belle loved them.

photo(2)My very favorite breakfast scramble.  Fried potatoes covered in sausage, avocado and a fried egg.  I eat it every weekend I have time to make a hot breakfast.

photo(3)Finally got to try these.  I think I may have mentioned them before.  This flavor is my fave.

photo(4)I think I mentioned these too.  I got a free sample of this soup from Smiley360.  I have tried all of the flavors and love them.

photo(5)This coconut flavor was so delish.  Oh good gravy I loved it.

photo(6)The chocolate FiberOne cereal is such a good snack.  Love it!


How was your Mothers Day?
