food blogging=not for everyone.

I just don't think that I am cut out to do food blogging.  Sure, it is really fun to read food blogs.  But actually doing them is wayyyyy too time consuming.  And I am just entirely too busy for it. =/  In fact, I should be doing homework right now!  So, I don't plan on updating as much as I should. Maybe when I have a little more time on my hands, I can then enjoy the wonders of food blogging.  Until then, take care!

you gotta know me now.

Today's eats were interesting.  Ever since I developed an eating disorder, my choices of food and eating patterns have been so strange, which is pretty consistent with the many symptoms of disordered eating.  For example, I add sweetener to just about EVERYTHING!  Even meats!  I add cayenne pepper to everything because I believe that it speeds up my metabolism (E.D. related).  I like for my meals to last me at least twenty minutes (E.D. related), so I eat slowly and with a baby spoon.  And I love to eat out of COFFEE MUGS!  So, now I present to you my very peculiar eat-genda:


A turkey burger!  Lol, that's right...a burger at 9:00 a.m.  Well, who says you have to have eggs and toast for breakfast anyway? {crickets} =)
-3 oz Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey grilled on the G.F.
-1/2 slice of Sargento Reduced Sodium Colby-Jack
On a One Minute Muffin formed into a bun, tweaked my way, with a side of red radishes smothered in low carb ketchup and Walden Farms Pancake syrup.  Radishes are pretty much a staple in my diet now.

40 minutes of pilates


A very strange fish taco.  It consisted of:
-4 oz tilapia, steamed with homemade BBQ sauce, dill, lemon, red pepper flakes, and black pepper (I know, sounds ridiculous, but it was good...I promise)
-on top of a bed of mixed cole slaw that was steamed and dressed in Galeo's Wasabi
-wrapped in a Tumaro's Low Carb Tortilla
With a side of steamed broccoli
Not pictured, but eaten lol: Oiko's 0% Plain Greek Yogurt with the usual sweet fixings and Starbucks Protein powder

Snack 1:
Pb and J on a tortilla

Snack 2:

Chocolite bar

Now this is the strangest of them all. It's:
122 g of Libby's Pure Pumpkin, sweetened with a packet of truvia
4 oz cooked Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey
Topped with 15 g of sugar free sweet relish and cayenne pepper
Eaten out of my favorite coffee mug
Now, tell me that's not weird! Lol.  I got the pumpkin/meat combo idea from April.  But the rest of the weirdness is all me. And the thing is...I'M HOOKED on this particular meal.  It's a weekly staple for me. 

I had a side of steamed broccoli as well, and a hot chocolate for dessert.

Bedtime Snack:
The usual.  But I reverted back to Dannon for Greek Yogurt.  Not gonna lie, I just buy what's on sale and in stock.  I used to only eat Chobani and Trader Joe's Greek yogurt, because I thought they were the best.  But, I've come to the conclusion that they all taste about the same and have similar stats.  Except the yoplait kind.  It's loaded with carbs.

Anyway, I've been in the process of creating my About Me page (hence the title of this post).  I love reading other people's About Me section, so I'd like to make mine interesting like the ones that I've read.  As soon as I finish collecting all of my pictures, it'll be complete.  However, I don't know when that will be.  I'm going to Alabama tomorrow, and then to New Orleans on Monday, and Florida on Wednesday...for SPRING BREAK! Woo hoo!  So, I probably won't be posting again for another week.  So until then, take care!

weight update

Ello.  Here's today's busy eat-genda (that's a play on the word "agenda", in case you didn't get it lol):

Breakfast was 143 g of red radishes, a serving of eggbeaters with leftover extra lean ground turkey breast made in an egg cooker, and  Ginny's One Minute Bread, the Next Minute Toast that was also made in the egg cooker smothered in low carb ketchup and Walden Farms Pancake Syrup

My tweaks:
1 tsp of Smart Balance Light
1/2 tsp of grated Parmesan
50 g Egg Beaters
11 g of Jennifer's Splendid Low Carb Bake Mix
About 7 g of golden flax
And everything else according to her recipe

40 Minutes of Pilates


But I made it into a single serving with:
215 g of steamed faux rice (cauliflower)
1 tbsp of diced green peppers
2 tbsp of Hunt's No Salt Added Tomato Sauce
2 oz Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast

30 g of canned baby corn
1/4 of a small chopped tomato
Topped with:
1 tbsp of sweet onion salsa
1 tbsp of Dannon Greek Yogurt (I also ate the rest of the container on the side with the usual sweet fixings)
11 g of low-fat shredded cheddar cheese


But I halved the recipe
-used an 8x8 pan, instead of a loaf pan
-nixed the raisins for 1/2 an ounce of chopped walnuts
-used a container of Gerber pureed bananas
-used 100 g of the Splendid Low Carb Bake Mix (I really love this stuff)
-used Starbucks' Sugar Free Cinnamon Dulce Syrup
-used egg beaters instead of eggs
 Nom nom nom nom lol

Snack 2:

1 tbsp of Polaner Sugar Free with Fiber Grape Jelly
1 Tumaro's Multi Grain Low Carb Tortilla


A wrap that consisted of:
Another Tumaro's Multi Grain Low Carb Tortilla
110 g of leftover chicken breast tenderloins
A handful of baby spinach
Some bell pepper (didn't measure)
About 1/2 tbsp of whipped cream cheese
A tbsp of April's Homemade BBQ Sauce (but mine has brown sugar twin, and low carb ketchup)

Snack 3:
(sneakily enjoyed whilst at work lol)
The last piece of that cinnamon-raisin bread =(  I gotta make more soon!

And last but not least,
Bedtime Snack:
1 container of Oiko's 0% Plain
Sweetened with Walden Farms Caramel Dip and Truvia, and topped off with chopped walnuts
Another piece of the nummy banana bread.  Naughty naughty!

So, about my weight: I'm too afraid to weigh myself, but I know I've gained since January 11, when I was about 99 pounds. I've noticed that my pants feel tighter around the thighs, albeit it is TTOM.  I'm still wearing a size 0, but I feel so much bigger and healthier.
