Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Good recipe up in here

Since I’ve been cutting back on desserts/sugary snacks this week, I’ve been trying to integrate sweet into my meals. Last night I made a couscous salad and it turned out really well.

I cup dry whole wheat couscous

1 package mushrooms

1 apple-diced

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1 tbsp olive oil

1-2 cups balsamic vinegar.

SauteeΒ sliced mushrooms and diced apple in olive oil while water is boiling for couscous.

When water is at a boil, dump in cup couscous which will automatically soak up all the water

dump mushroom, apple and cranberries into the pot and let sit a lowest heat.

Pour vinegar into separate pot and let boil until it reduces down dramatically. Sauce should be thick and smell really sweet. Β It takes a lot of vinegar to make a little bit of reduction. When sauce is done, dump into pot of couscous,etc and stir. Done and Done.

Simple and SO SO tasty. It serves 3 -4 good size portions.

I paired the couscous salad with a veggie burger and it was a great dinner. Next time I’ll probably add another veggie to the mix such as spinach or broccoli.

Yesterdays breakfast was simple but I sort of felt like a perv eating it. Peanut butter spread on a low carb wrap wrapped around a banana. I like to call it, Penis in a Blanket.

Don't pretend that you wouldn't have thought that too.

Today was our last day of booty for the week! Having Len on board makes it a million times easier to get up in the morning and get out the door. It’s such a welcomed change. Today we did a lot of sprints and upper body. I literally have ZERO arm muscle so the exercises are SO hard. We used bands the whole time and worked our shoulders, back, and triceps (I think). I felt the burn, for sure.

Upon arriving home I immediately wanted eggs and ketchup. Not sure which one sounded better! This whole egg kick that I’m on is SO not like me. I’m telling you, eggs are such creepy little things but for some reason I’m loving them this week. I hope this obsession sticks around because I definitely need more protein in my life. A light english muffin with butter was also enjoyed. Butter is not something I struggle with and 99.9 percent of the time don’t use. This morning was just plain strange.

You should know that I passed on ice cream the last two nights and didn’t go near the bins of hell yesterday at my internship. I feel better already.

P.S. Do you guys have one boob bigger than the other? My left one is definitely bigger.

  4. My boobs are so small that it’s really hard to tell either way. True story. But I think when I was a little “curvier” (aka hello freshmen 15), my right was bigger.

    I used to love eggs and ketchup. Why is that such a wonderful creation? And who came up with it??? Too bad I’m not so much a fan of ketchup anymore…

  11. Mmm couscous salad. Seriously anything with balsamic vinegar is amazing in my book πŸ™‚ Oddly enough I don’t think my boobs are are differently sized… maybe I just don’t stare at mine enough πŸ˜‰

  12. Great job getting up and working out! My boobs were 2 very different sizes, I am told a difference is perfectly normal to be a little uneven. No one is perfect!

  15. Oh wow, I MUST try that couscous salad, it sounds right up my alley!
    And uh, pretty sure anyone with a working BRAIN would have thought “penis” when they saw your brekkie, so you’re not a perv, hehe πŸ˜‰
    Also: I thiiiink my left boob surpasses my right boob in the size department. But I could be getting that backwards. Damned mirrors.

  19. Bahaha @ penis in a blanket. You are hilarious girl.

    My girls are a little bit mismatched too. Seems to be the norm? Much how guys have different sized balls – since we’re on the topic of private parts.

  21. Funny you bring it up.. we had this convo at the bar on friday night. Most girls have one boob bigger than the other and the general consensus with the boys is that its always the left..
