Dead battery

I started this morning, quite uneventfully, with another bagel with light cream cheese, but when I was about to snap a photo my camera shut itself off.  Boo!  Dead battery!!  Thankfully my old camera was the same brand so now I have 2 battery chargers – 1 at home and 1 in my work purse.  This post would have been a whole lot less exciting otherwise 😀 

Let’s get straight to lunch because it was kind of the highlight of today’s eats.  I couldn’t get the b.good southwestern chicken salad I just had a few days ago out of my mind (obsessed much? 😉 ), so today I decided to try one of their other salads.  If you’ve been following my blog for awhile you’ll know that I hardly ever buy lunch.  In fact, I’m not even sure if I’ve ever bought lunch since starting this blog!  That’s just crazy, because just a year ago I always bought lunch.  Anyways, today I bundled up and braved the cold to head to b.good.  I didn’t want to be too boring so I ordered the sesame-ginger chicken saladmesclun, carrots, jicama, edamame, grilled chicken, sesame seeds, sesame sticks, orange-soy dressing.

The verdict?  It was good, but not mind blowing southwestern chicken salad good 😀  I also went through a stage where I put Newman’s Own Light Sesame Ginger dressing on everything, so I think I ODed on that flavor.  Anyways, I still enjoyed it!



flavored rice, sun-dried tomato chicken sausage, snap peas and sun dried tomatoes

yogurt with mango, puffins, granola and honey roasted nuts

love bar

Oops, I just realized I promised Lara I wasn’t going to have any sugary sweets today.  That’s actually why I made that little yogurt concoction for “dessert” after dinner, but alas a few hours later I totally forgot about my little goal and grabbed the guy above.  Love bars… mmm, best sh*t evuh!! 😆

No workout today again.  My stomach hasn’t been my friend the last few days.  Hopefully tomorrow…

Oh, we’re going to Foxwoods Casinos in CT tomorrow night for the night, so I won’t blog until Saturday.  I’ll take lots of pics though and will do a recap for sure!  We’re going to a nice restaurant there so I’m sure there will be delicious eats to report about.  I’m not a gambler, but maybe my husband will come back a millionaire?!  Yeah ok. 😉

*edited to add* How could I forget?!  Angela of Oh She Glows is holding an Honest Foods giveaway, so if you haven’t done so yet, click on the link and enter to win a box of their goodies.  I’m dying to try out their products (I search for them at every Whole Foods I ever go to… with no luck so far) so maybe this is my chance.  On that note, you know what, don’t click on that link.  This will increase my chances of winning… j/k :)

  • Aww, that’s ok 😉 Sorry I didn’t respond to your comments sooner–the list of blogs I now visit daily is getting OOC! I usually save all my favorites to do later in the day 😉
    Yeah, no sugar treats sucks. If I could keep it controlled there wouldn’t be a problem, but lately the problem is stopping after one! Yikes. Everything you eat always looks reasonable so I don’t think you should restrict!
    Good luck on the OSG contest…you have some stiff competition 😉

    I just went through this entire blog, and honestly, it’s probably one of the coolest sites I’ve seen in a long time! Going through your posts is actually really inspiring, and I’m way more motivated to be aware of my food choices and their effects on me. It also gives me new snack and dinner ideas, which I’m sure Kyle will more than appreciate! 😉

    This is great-keep it up!

  • […] choices as I’m trying to work with a calorie “budget”.  About 2 months ago, when I went there for a salad for lunch (thank you blog for helping me keep my food straight ) I dropped my business card in one […]
