I Managed To Hold Back

Mornin’ lovelies! How’s Tuesday treating ya so far?

Well, I didn’t really have all that much going on yesterday evening, so I figured I’d wait and share it with you all today. Like I’ve said before, no sense in chatting when there’s not much to chat about, right?


Jay and I were actually planning on trying out a new dish for dinner last night, but my stomach was a little off for some reason and it got late out of nowhere (how does that happen all the time?!?), so we decided to save that for tonight.

Our fridge is currently ridiculously STUFFED with food (I’d take a picture, but it’s sort of embarrassing) so we decided it’d be a good night to work on clearing it out.


I heated up the last of my Chicken & Veggie Stew and paired it with two corn tortillas.


I filled each corn tortilla with one slice of low-sodium deli turkey and half a slice of cheddar cheese. Tossed ‘em under the broiler for a couple of minutes, and I had myself a couple of melty turkey & cheese tortillas. Yum!


I also did a little baking yesterday…


While we were at Jay’s work party over the weekend, I promised some of the guys that I’d make them some cupcakes since it’s been a while (they’re needy). I wound up doing a slight variation of one of my previous recipes, which I think has some potential…

Unfortunately, they’re still not frosted because my first batch of frosting turned out to be a disaster. I’m going for attempt #2 later today and hopefully get them out of my sight because holy crap do I really want to dig into ‘em.

Alas, I managed to hold back and had one of these bad boys for dessert last night instead. VitaTops now makes these 50-calorie VitaCakes which are actually pretty tasty when you’re in need of a chocolate fix.


I just heat it up in the microwave for about 20 seconds and I’ve got myself a warm, gooey chocolate dessert.


Don’t be fooled though…I went back for a second one and enjoyed it while getting sucked into the vortex that is The Bachelor. I’m sort of hit or miss with that show (the last season I truly watched was with Allie and Roberto) but I’m finding myself becoming intrigued by this season.


All I’ll say is…that chick Courtney is NOT doing a very good job of representin’ the name, and I swear that Emily’s mouth is smushed to the side more than it is normal. Did anyone else notice that??



I wound up sleeping through my alarm AGAIN this morning (yikes!), so I decided to just hold off on a workout and skip right to breakfast since I woke up fairly hungry. Today was deemed a cereal combo day.


I did a combo of Kashi Go Lean + Special K Protein Plus with unsweetened almond milk, strawberries, half a banana, and chia seeds. Totally loving the strawberry-banana combo today!


And thank goodness, I’m back to having good coffee again. Muuuuch better. Smile


Time to let breakfast digest, squeeze in a workout, and get going with the rest of my day…lots to do!

    Courtney is definitely not doing a good job of repping your name. I am so not a fan of her!

    You have some crazy willpower girl. If I had all those cupcakes, I don’t tbibk I’d be able to not try one. But that vitatop cake does look really yummy. Must try!

    I agree with Gina up there on the vita tops. I walk past them every week but unjust can’t justify the $5 box!! Maybe I’ll get creative in the kitchen this weekend make my own healthy muffin tops!

    I noticed that last night, Emily’s mouth is weird and I swear Courtney looks EXACTLY like Jessica Simpson. Am I the only one that thinks that?

    I love vitatops. I never buy them because they are so expensive but I might have to find those snack cakes. Sounds yummy!

    I am with you on needing to clear out the food in my house! We leave on vacation on Sunday yet I am still buying groceries. What is my deal?? I haven’t seen the Vitacakes in stores around me yet, but I am definitely buying them when I do! I love Vitatops so I know I’ll dig them. Have a good day!

    We’ve got an opposite situation going on in our house- our fridge is looking a little sparse but it’s making us be creative and make some totally random, new dishes!

    P.S. I loveee VitaTops and could eat one with each meal of the day, but haven’t tried the new VitaCakes- are they the same as a top just rectangular and smaller?!

    P.P.S. The Bachelor this season is so bad it’s so good- can’t not watch 😛

    Haha – I noticed that exact same thing about Emily last night! She could not stop smushing her mouth from one side to the other!

  7. says

    I have never heard of Vita Cakes! I will have to keep my eyes peeled for them! ALSO I just started watching the Bachelor for the first time ever and I must agree Courtney is disgracing your name!
