back and still homeless

5 Aug

It’s true, sadly I’m back in tally sleeping on a sheetless mattress again because I’m not technically moved in yet 😦

In fact, I’ve gotten so desperate that when I went to work out I also showered at the gym. I know this is a normal thing for many people but I think it makes it ultra sad that I showered there out of necessity and not convenience. Oh well only 2 more days!!

I can’t wait to decorate my room. Seriously. You guys have no idea how excited I am to post the before and after pics!! Although I will warn you, don’t expect tooooo much but I’m just super excited to FINALLY have my own place.

So back to today’s activities:

left home around 12:30 and drove 4 long hours to tally…yuck. Then proceed to the gym (as mentioned before) to workout legs that were stiff from driving. After a quick shower I was hungrrryyy and really wanted healthy food that I didn’t have to make so I rushed over to new leaf hoping for the best but it was already 8 so I wasn’t sure if their hot bar would still be open…..it was!!! success.

this was my first hot bar expirience guys and I must say, it was heaven.

ate the whole thing 🙂

and now some random eats from home:

I got in as many juices as possible while I was home since I don’t have a juicer 😦 Momma always makes carrot +apple + beet + ginger

I told her to go heavy on the ginger for ultra juice powers! She didn’t disappoint lol it was strong!

I also ate this twice

I don’t think I would at all mind eating this everyday for the rest of my life. Quinoa + Eden’s organic pasta sauce +avocado. Simple, classic and delish.

I also tried my first spaghetti squash! I didn’t feel like a savory meal at the time though so I turned it into dessert.

Spaghetti squash + bananas + cinnamon

topped with pecans

It was pretty yummy but I think it would have been even better with some apples instead and maybe some stevia or brown sugar.But I am officially a fan of spaghetti squash. It really turns into spaghetti noodles, who would have thought!

Have you ever had spaghetti squash? What’s your fav way to prepare it so I have some ideas for next time lol?

Oh mylanta!

Talk about a busy day! I’m back home in Orlando finally and stressed out of my mind! I have been running around doing errands all day because I only have 1 1/2 ish days left home. It’s going so fast! It really sounded like a lot longer when I planned it out but I have to make due with what I have because this was the only time I could go home 😦

The day started with a workout- 30 min. cardio + some back exercises. Then ran back home to get in some food.

We had planned to stop by the eye doctor but they were booked 😦 so we made an appointment for wednesday instead and jetted to COSTCO!! only one of my fav places ever. I’m a loser, i love a good bargain.

After loading up on toilet paper, paper towels, oats and coffee for the rest of my life lol we went to whole foods to get some food since there was absolutely NOTHING to eat at the house. It was actually kind of strange. I had a hard time understanding what my parents eat when their hungry and then I remembered…”oh there’s actually kind of a lot when you consider that they eat like normal people” lol. My brain obviously no longer works that way.

After that, it was bed bath and beyond, then kohl’s, then publix, then BACK to bed bath and beyond, then target (it was obvious that we were starting to get a little loopy from all shopping and could no longer make up our minds).

Somewhere in that we managed to eat and I even made my step dad’s fav vegan coffee cake again!

He’s been missing it alot since I’m the only person that can make it according to him lol.

look at that choc chip goodness! (recipe adapted from the clean eating mama)

And to end the day I enjoyed one of my new favs oat bran VOO!!!

It’s more pudding-y because the oat bran is so small and mealy. It’s prob my second fav after rolled oats. What can I say, I like to chew my food!!

Oh and in case you were wondering this is where I slept the night before I drove home and the conditions I’ll be sleeping in again for 2 more days after I return to tally thursday

yes that’s my new room and yes, that is a sheetless mattress 😦 it made me feel so homeless. not fun. Can’t wait to move in my stuff and actually have a HOME again!

MIA Blogger- part I

1 Aug

Hey guys!

Sorry I’ve been so MIA lately but a lot has been going on around here. Now add to that the fact that I haven’t had internet 😦 it’s been a sad and blogless life around here but it’s also been filled with some pretty awesome stuff that I can’t wait to share!

And since I have so much stuff I’m splitting it into 2 parts so…

Part I:

So let’s start from the beginning. As you know, I’m officially homeless. Friday was completely consumed with packing and filling my car to capacity with all the junk I seem to accumulate.

just a couple things

Oh, and did I mention the A/C went out that day…ya it was NOT FUN to say the least. Pretty much wanted to kill myself but I stuck through it and ended with a nice cold shower at my friend Kayla’s place who so kindly let me stay with her.

I swear it was like experiencing a/c for the first time again. I was literally in heaven. And on top of that she had a nice clean apartment and not one filled with dirty dishes that have accumulated from your body builder roommate who is depressed from his dieting that he can’t muster up the strength to clean them himself, gross.

Forgive the digression, let’s continue on. So after my holy shower, me and bebler had some much needed couple time on a dinner date at Sakura Japanese. After working so hard and being so stressed out from the moving to the accounting final, it was nice to enjoy some good food and alone time.

I have to admit something now…I ate fish. And it was damn good.

I’ve actually been thinking about reintroducing fish and eggs back in my diet for a while now. I haven’t made any decisions yet, but that night I did splurge and enjoy something I’ve always loved. Do I regret it? No. I don’t know if it’s just because I’ve been stressed or because I haven’t been buying enough of a variety of foods but my diet hasn’t been satisfying me lately. I feel really constricted on what I can eat and helpless when I’m hungry. I don’t think anyone should feel like this and we should all be happy eating what we like and what makes us feel good. So for right now I’m weighing my options and I’m going to see what works best for me and my lifestyle right now. I’m sorry if this offends any non-meat eaters or anyone else, but I don’t think I should be a hypocrite and lie to you guys either.

So going back to dinner at Sakura we enjoyed some pretty great food.

For starters I had miso soup,

And bebler got his fav gyoza (pork dumplings)

Then we ordered the July roll (bebler’s fav),

The sakura roll,

The fantastic roll, which was literally FANTASTIC (my fav)

And one other I can’t remember the name of

Sooooo good. Man I missed sushi 🙂 and don’t worry, we had left overs. but usually me and carson can put down sushi like it’s our job! the waiters always used to come back and say “wow, looks like you guys were hungry” and then I would get self conscious lol

Then after, bebler went out with the boys while me and Kayla went to see Charlie St. Cloud….it was just ok. We felt like it didn’t do a good job of explaining things and it was just kind of weird. But at least we got some entertainment. And then we got back to her apartment and watched the new JERSEY SHORE IN MIAMI!!! Man I miss the GTL, drama, and fist pumping! Good ending to a rough day 🙂

Stay tuned for part II TRUST ME you don’t want to miss what happened the next day…
