CAUTION: Extreme Sausage Consumption

....and excessive levels of sodium intake!!!! No matter how hard I try there is no chance of getting away from how dirty that sounds!!

We will start with Friday because this is the day that I ate way to much spicy sausage. I didn't workout Friday morning because the man left at 5am. I don't have a pic of the oats I ate at breakfast but do I really need to tell you what else I had? Ok I will anyway, SAUSAGE!
Not really sure what my morning snack was but Ill say a shake. I then headed to my moms to clean. Lunch was butternut squash fries (pre oven)..
So pretty and bright!!! Annnnddddd......more Trader Joes Spicy sausage a top a bed of greens...
By the time I finished cleaning it was time for my pre dinner snack and I was starving, so I rushed home to find a pretty empty fridge and pantry. My only choice???? You guessed it, SAUSAGE!!
and a bowl of brownie batter (aka peanut butter and rice protein goo).
Dinner, you ask? I could let you down by saying chicken, but I wont :). SAUSAGE!!!! With cottage cheese (lactose free) and a salad.
I am pretty sure my sodium intake was lethal considering each sausage contained about 580mg of sodium. Oh well *shrugs shoulders*.

Saturday I got up ate a bowl of chocolate rice protein filled oats with peanut butter...
It looks prettier all mixed up...
and then hit the gyzzzm for a sweat session. I then took my beautiful nieces shopping at the Nashville's new Urban Outfitters. One of my beautiful darlings and I in the dressing room...
We pretty much spent the day shopping in Nashville but I made sure to eat before so I wouldn't have to eat out. When I got home the sweet, sweet man had a small Dairy Queen Oreo cheesecake blizzard waiting for me. I was surprised and was thinking "how sweet" and "damn him!" all at the same time. I happily and hesitantly ate half and then trashed the rest. For dinner I made Turkey Chickpea Burgers....
I ate mine with a salad...

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained
  • 1/2 cup scallions
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (I used Soy)
  • 3/4 lb ground turkey (I used a 1lb)
  • cooking spray

  1. In a food processor blend chickpeas, scallions, cumin, pepper, salt, and Worcestershire sauce, until smooth.
  2. Transfer mixture into large bowl and mix with turkey until well combined.
  3. Divide into 4 equal portions (I got 6) Heat large non stick skillet over medium heat and cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side.

1 6oz patty contains 190 cals, 4.5g fat, 16 carbs, 26g protein

I will leave you with this pic of my 2 angels who are currently bathing...

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I have stretch marks!!!!!!


  1. I won't even go into the stretch mark thing. I'll leave it at you're not alone.

    So, did you ever figure out what was bothering your stomach? At least you balanced out all the sausage intake with lots of veggies...and a little chocolate. :)

    Haha, it makes me laugh that that is the 2nd picture you've taken in the Urban Outfitters dressing room. Your niece is gorgeous by the way, and as always, the Little One looks adorable. :)

  2. OH girl... don't get me started on stretch marks!! haha After losing weight and having a baby... forget it! Not to mention lots and lots of loose skin from both, too ;)

    Sausage looks SO yummy... I still have some more TJ's chicken sausage in my fridge... now i know what's for lunch :)

    I still haven't made it to the Nashville Urban Outfitters!! Since I'm broke... I should probably stay away anyway :) Looks like you had a great time, though! :)

  3. aw you guys are all so cute! I love days out with the girls :)

    those turkey chickpea burgers reallllly make me wish i wasnt a vegetarian. grr. YUM!

  4. Oooh, I like the burger recipe. They look so nice in the pictures. And I never really eat a lot of turkey, but its such a good lean meat!

    I love your sausage addiction (haha..) I never even knew there were so many varieties of sausage until I started reading your blog!

    Also, I have stretch marks and I haven't had a child. At least you got something out of it!
