Let’s not forgot my EATS for the day! 


I had 2 slices of the always “yummy” Publix Breakfast Bread with a glass of orange juice for breakfast


Can you see a lunch theme this week???  

Yes, I had another turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato & a little mayo on a whole-wheat thin bagel with a sliced pear on the side this time. 


Due to my 2+ hour gym visit I did not get home until after 8pm, I was also in great need of a shower when I got home so dinner had to wait until after that…….so I didn’t get around to eating until almost 9pm and seeing as it was so late I didn’t feel like making anything so a small bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats and 1/2 a sliced banana became my dinner. 

Do you ever eat cereal for dinner???

I used to in the past a lot, when I was “single”.  However, ever since I got married I have made dinners and haven’t in a very long time. 

A bit of TV followed dinner until I started to fall asleep on the couch and finally headed upstairs around 11pm.



Your A-to-Z Guide to a Flat Belly

W-Work the bicycle crunch.

This move—touching your left elbow to your right knee, and vice versa, while crunching up—gives your stomach muscles more than twice the challenge of a traditional crunch, a study from San Diego State University reports.



STAY TUNED for the weekend post about Meal Planning & Grocery Shopping 101“!!!

    I love the Publix breakfast bread! Since I don’t live near one anymore, my parents always bring it when they come to visit. I am going to get some hopefully this wknd when I go to Murfreesboro to visit a friend!

      Oh, I would hate it if I didn’t live close to a Publix as I love the store! Hope you get some bread this weekend……=)

    USe to love to eat cereal for breakfast, esp when I was in college. Now, however, that is the only family time we get together (hubbie and 2 kids) so I always try to make something and eat as a family,esp since my kids are so little! I love breakfast for dinner but the hubbie is not a fan :{

      That is my problem, exactly! The hubby had fast food last night and the little one ate at the grandparents so I was on my own for a change. =)
