Ahh Sunday, one of my favorite and also one of my least favorite days of the week. I am staying positive though, and today will dub it as my favorite day!
Before I talk abotu the weekend, I will back up to Thursday where I left off. After work, my mom and I went bed shopping (SUCCESS!) I got a queen size being delivered on Saturday right to my apartment.
Bed-off the checklist
Ok back to my Thursday, where my mom and I went to my new favorite store.
I got this cute mug!
And almost got this one as well. But it was very heavy. Cute, but too heavy.
Cosmo Jellybeans!! I didn't get them, but they were too awesome to not take a picture of.
Remember when I talked about my Favorite Childhood gadget? Well look what I found in X-mas tree Shops! A whole shelf of the little guys!
16k Engagement ring for Me.
Just kidding! How cute are these napkin holders?!
I munched on some cocoa roasted almonds that I brought with me from my Trip to Tarjay.
WHen I came home I made April's low carb sweet bread!
- 1 cup ground flaxseed
- 1 cup wheat-bran
- 1/4-1/2 cup pure pumpkin (depending how moist you like your bread- I like mine really moist so I used 1/2 cup)
- 1 cup liquid egg substitute
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1 tbsp each baking powder and cinnamon
- 2 tsp pure stevia extract
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick baking spray.
- Combine all ingredients.
- Pour into baking pan, bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
MMMM good! I think I used too much sweetener, so next time I will monitor my 'eyeballing' of this ingredient! So good, April!!!
Dinner Thursday Night was a simple salad with some honey mustard and some Dr Kracker Crackers.
A meatless meatball mess with some roasted brocolli and eggplant, homemade tomato sauce and a LC wedge (microwaved and all mixed up after picture)

Can you believe that I have never tried BB??
BB and Jam Wrap!! SO good. It was thick and creamy and so flavorful!
Lunch-Ensalada with carrot chips, tomaters, red pepp, cuke, broc and some no salt seasonings on top with balsamic vinegar. I also had a turkey wrap but I am sure you are all wrapped out so I will let your imaginations run wild with what it looked like :)

Came home and ate this beast. 1/2 C cottage cheese with 1/2 scoop BSN cinnamon Roll Protein Powder. 1/2 Apple and a handful of Kashi Puff.
For dinner I went with Jason to the Golden Temple which is a chinese Restaurant in Brookline, MA. It is really good and easy to keep dinner healthy too!
Started with a mandarin orange salad with mandarin orange dressing and slices!, mushroom and black sesame seeds. WAY too much dressing on this!! We couldn't finish it because it was doused in dressing! ( I hate that)
I got the chicken vegatable delight which is steamed mixed veggies, chicken breast and a light oyster sauce, I also asked for no oil. Very delish and healthy! we also got some brown fried rice and jason got beef and green beans.
Saturday morning Breakast! 1/2 C oats, with strawberries, some blueberries, 1/2 banana and chia. PB on the bottom!! COFFEE.
I hit the gym shortly after for a 10:30 BodyCombat Class!! WOW this is SO FUN! I have done it before, but I wasn't in the 'mood' so I left early. Today I had such high energy and the class was packed, which I love and I was a sweaty beast! Here is a little vid you can watch to see what the class is like! its high intensity cardio with lots of kick boxing moves. My HRM said i burned 448 cal's in 55 minutes! Not too bad! I ended with 15 minutes on the arc trainer and some abs ( I am loving DECLINE leg lifts these days!)
Turkey Wrap with lettuce, sprouts, tomaters, hummus.
SOme sea salt soy crisps on the side!
My mom and I ventured to the Natick Mall shortly after for me to find a dress to wear to Jasons Brother's wedding in April. I found 3!! I bought one from Karen Millen. i had never stepped foot in this store before but it looked good and I liked the style of the clothes so I went in. I found TWO dresses!! I had one ordered because they didn't have my size and took one home. THen I went to Cache (which I really dislike most of the time) BUT I found one dress that was really beautiful, ordered in my size being shipped. I don't know if this one will fit because they only had a size 2 which didn't fit over my knees so We shall see!
TODAY, Sunday. I am PACKING for my big move next week!! Maybe later Jason and I will go to BJ's I want to get a TV and some things for the apartment.

- Have you ever found a piece of clothing at an unexpected store that you never go into? I did at Karen Millen and Cache!
Peace and Love,
