I love You...

..all of MY READERS and especially my fellow blogger Sweet Heather!!!!!!!

Nothing to exciting happened last night. I did make a really random but good dinner. My camera battery was dead so no pics but I threw together a stir fry that consisted of..
  • Chicken
  • Italian chicken sausage
  • Sugar snap peas
  • Onions
  • Red pepper
  • Sweet potato, chopped in 1/2 inch pieces
  • lots of garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • splash of soy sauce
  • ginger soy sauce, from Whole Foods
It was interesting but really good and easy.

This morning at the gym the coolest thing ever happened to me!!! I stepped on the treadmill when the girl next to me asked "are you Justine"? Of course I replied yes but was trying to think how I knew her. Then she said she reads my BLOGGIE (and Heathers of course)!! Well she didn't say "bloggie", but you catch the drift. How cool is that to get recognized from your blog? Her name was Kim (shot me if I am wrong) and we had a little chat but I wish we could have talked more. Kim, if you are out there shot me an email and we can get our little ones together for a play date :). That was a great start to my day!

When I got home I was really hot and sweaty and a bowl of hot oats didn't sound good for the first time ever in my life. I deiced on a protein packed shake to cool me off.
In the mix...
  • 2 tbsp. brown rice protein powder
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • banana
  • dark chocolate stevia
  • unsweetened chocolate almond milk
  • ice and water
Yummy :)

Then I began getting ready for my little date with my loved one. hehe I ate this to tide me over til lunch...
It was this Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage from Trader Joes, a ww La Tortilla Factory tortilla, spinach and mustard.

I was so hungry when we got to the restaurant, Cafe Rakka of course. I pigged out on this lovely hummus and a shit load some fresh baked whole wheat pita (that's eggplant in the middle and roasted garlic along the edges)
While Heather and I chatted about her ovaries and my rash :). I also munched on this side salad..
After our fabulously full lunch we headed over to Wal-Mart for some peanut butter where I held up the express lane due to my demagnetized credit card and a few very necessary peanut butter pics...
I am pretty sure there were people cussing me....

Heather, I always have an awesome time with you. Lets do it again, sooner than later!!!

The rest of the day was spent planning the little ones 4th Birthday party which is coming up next week. Hope everyone had a fabulous fast week and as fun of a day as I did!!!!

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: After eating a meal out like today I sort of feel like I fell off the wagon. Its hard for me to get back on and I feel like I should just eat junk the rest of the day. I guess its kinda like all or nothing for me. A habit I definitely need to break!!!!


  1. I am the exact same way when I eat unhealthy.. I have such damaging thoughts sometimes!! I love your confessions... and you and your blog too! It looks like you and Heather had fun. Which I could be there sometimes!!!

  2. Get back on the wagon! You can do it! I know it's hard :( The last few days have been rough for me too. But I'm trying :)

  3. What a nice surprise! It must have been lovely meeting someone who reads your blog. You're famous :-)

    I'm an all or nothing girl too.. if I eat a little bit of junk I feel like I've already ruined the day so might as well have more. But I try to talk myself out of this (silly) reasoning. In any event, I understand where you are coming from.

    Cute picture of you and Heather!

  4. That plate of hummus looks so amazingly good - I would have had trouble limiting my intake!

  5. hey Justine it was so nice to meet you! I felt like a big sweaty dork the whole time we were talking.. and it would be great to get together with our kids..just let me know!

  6. I want to bathe in the plate of hummus! DIVINE!

    You and Heather look adorable as usual! How cool, you're famous :)

    Totally fell off the wagon yesterday as you know full well from my Naturally More text message confession. :) That's okay, but I did it again today! Went out to eat with CD and my family...THEN we went and got dessert. Ahhh, the evil dairy. Oops. It was so good, but I know I'll pay tomorrow.

    Love you my friend. Not sure if I'm going to wedding tomorrow. I do not want to drive to Memphis if it's pouring rain on the way there and the way back. My windshield wipers suck.

    Jay Robb is on his way. Lots of sexy hot vanilla for you. :)

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. you are very pretty.

  9. ahh, i am so jeal of the fabulous times you and heather are always having together!! why does no one live near me?!

    so cool that someone recognized you! what a perfect way to start the day :)

  10. I love your blog Justine! I'm not sure if i've posted before, but I always pop by to see what's going on in your world :) Your posts are great, and never fail to bring a smile to my face.

    I totally know what you mean about falling off the wagon, and then just wanting to pig out the rest of the day. It is a bad habit I have as well, and definitely need to shake!
