It’s happening!

January 20th, 2010 · 21 Comments · Uncategorized

It’s no joke, our kitchen is officially under construction. This is what I saw when I walked into the house tonight…

It’s happening, it’s really happening!! :mrgreen:

Work was crazy busy but I stayed on track with my food, despite being unable to fit a workout in. I knew it would be the case, so I didn’t even bring my workout clothes with me. This way I didn’t feel guilty at all – it was all about finishing my project… which I did, seconds before my boss left! Phew.

I’m running a bit late, so here are my eats for the day. Let me know if something jumps out and you want more details :)

The highlight of my eats was this fig pastry I got at Tatte as my treat of the day. SO AMAZING!!

I tried to eat only half…

… but went back for more later in the night. 😳 I’ll try to keep it extra clean today to make up for it. Worth every calorie though!!

I’m so happy it’s Wednesday already. Happy hump day everybody!! 😀

  • #3 - Coco

    Congrats girl on remodeling your kitchen! We def have to have a cooking session in there when it’s complete! Yum yum yum that mac and cheese looks divine. I’ve never spruced up a boxed macaroni, but it’s such a great idea!!!! I’m going to step and sculpt tonight if your interested!

    Congrats on the kitchen moving forward! Quick question – are you and your husband able to leave the contractor there by himself to work on it? My wife and I would like to redo our kitchen, but it’s not really possible for one of us to be home for the week or two it would take. But it sounds like it’s possible to find someone trustworthy enough to leave them there for the day?

    Maria – cool. You got it!

    Innz – it’s Niman Ranch ham. It’s the best ham ever!! All natural, etc. and tastes incredible. As I was slicing it up, I said I prefer it over chocolate. Of course after buying that fig tart, dessert won 😆

    Coco – I’m going to spin at lunch. Let me know how the step and sculpt class is. I think it’s a new instructor!

    Shannon – I definitely will. :)

    Jon – yes, I trust our contractor so we gave him a set of keys so neither one of us has to be home. I think that’s how it’s usually done. You really need to trust the person to work on your house so leaving the keys wasn’t a big deal for us. Good luck with your remodel!

    where do you get those somersaults? they look delicious!

  • #19 - Elina

    Gabriela- hmm, there is nothing good right there, but if you’re willing to walk a bit (or take a short cab ride), I can probably suggest a few places. Let me think about it!

    Evan – no, these are the Zen bakery mango blueberry (they come in a container of 4)… I did get them at WF.

    Amy – I got these particular mini packs from the company, but I have purchased the slightly larger bags directly from and also from Amazon. They ARE delicious :)

  • #20 - Jenna

  • #21 - Lara (Thinspired)

    Now I get it 😉 How exciting though! When is it due to be finished?
