Short run, best pace!

Last night was beautiful outside and I love that it is dark by 530pm, so I went for a short run! I was running against the wind for the majority of it and mostly uphill, but something kept telling me to keep at it. I managed to run 1.92 miles in 23 min and I paced at 11 min/mile, that is a personal best for me. I am sure all you experienced runners mock me, but for me, I’m owning it as a NSV!!! Had to share!

My muffin tin is getting a workout!

I really like small compact meals, and this is one of them

Sorry but I am no photographer ,nor do I claim to be, but this is fresh from the oven loveliness. I had some left over meatloaf, who doesn’t when you make one, and this concoction arose. Place 2 thin wonton wrappers in a Pam sprayed tin, scoop in some leftover meatloaf,spaghetti sauce,taco sauce (whatever you have) then cut up 1 Armstrong cheese stick( or use any cheese you have). Bake at 400 for about 10-15 min, I like mine crispy! There you have it ,portable compact meal to go!

Yummy goodness!

Breakfast Food Porn!

Today , after sleeping 11 hours, I woke up hungry! So this is what was consumed and let me tell you, it was to die for

Easy peasy to make as well, so here it goes
spray muffin tin with Pam
Place 1 slice of deli ham in each tin
crack an egg into each ham slice,stir it up
I put in chopped peppers, dash of salt and pepper, then topped with 1 Armstrong cheese stick(cut up)
Now you could easily put any ingredients in this, but today I wanted simple easy prep! My peppers are the precut , frozen ones, easy!
Now bake for 20 min at 400 and viola , you got a lovely breakky! I have yet to input the stats into myfitnesspal, but I’m sure they are not too bad! Will edit this with stats ASAP!

Have a glorious day!

It’s Friday, Friday gotta get down on Friday!!!

I just have to say that I feel absolutely fantastic today! I went back to my old love, Treadmill. We made up and I’m so happy we are friends again. I must admit though, I really really love to run outside, the fresh air, the darkness and looking into people’s home at night keeps me entertained, but, today I ran like a good little hamster on the treadmill. It felt awesome, no knee pain at all. I even found I was pacing at 11 min/mile which is a goal of mine! After my little run session I wandered over to my other love, Weight room.! I did a few machines and some amazing arm workouts and for the rest of the day my endorphins were in overdrive! On a side note, my baby kitty who has been missing for 3 days returned home today, crying at the back door. It was like a Christmas miracle! Mini diva has been devastated that poor Sam Sam was in a coyote’s belly. Nope, he’s home now and on a leash! Seriously, she put a leash on him! Hope you all had a fabulous day like me! Stay postive people, good things come to good people!

Ciao!

Plastics Consult!!!!

So I received a letter in the mail yesterday informing me of my plastic surgery consult for Dec 12, this year!!! Yippee! Pretty stoked , my amazing surgeon who did my hernia repair this past summer referred me on to this surgeon just Sept 19th so I am very pleased with the turn around time! I am praying and crossing my fingers that I can get the surgery I need covered by OHIP! This will be an amazing Christmas gift to get this year, a nice flat tummy and maybe some perky new girls! Will keep you all posted !

Happy Halloween!

Honestly, this day means absolutely nothing to me. I have a youngster, mini diva who loves this day, but to me it is pure evil! All you lil ole tiny wrapped chocolate bars stare at me with evil eyes. You know you want me to eat you, but I will not! Not now, not ever! This will be the second year since my RNY that Halloween has come and gone without me gaining an ounce! The only treats I ever loved were those bars and the itsy bitsy chip bags, candy never interested me! So this year I will joyfully hand out treats to all the lil goblins and make sure there is nothing left over for me to pick at. I did however make an amazing Sheppard’s Pie for dinner that will get gobbled up!

Have a ghostly Halloween peeps!

Dear H&M We are now bestfriends!

So took mini diva on a shopping adventure today, hoping to pick up some Xmas gifts for the fam when we wandered into H&M. I love this store and could never ever fit into anything other than a braclet(that was pushing it) or maybe a scarf! Today, these called out my name

Skinny jeans! I bought them and they fit so darn good , all this running is paying off 10 fold! 115lbs lbs ago these would have been a very big not a chance, not even Lane Bryant sized! So I may just rock these bad boys tomorrow with my black blazer and some cute boots! FASHIONISTA!
Look out world Inkdgirl is here to stay!

My weekend read!

This is what I’m reading this weekend, yes I know it’s been around forever, I just took some time getting it! I love it! These girls are fantastic and I so get their humour! I love to read a book that openly has curse words every second sentence! I am now even more wanting to purchase Forks Over Knives on ITUNES and watch it this weekend. I am getting closer and closer to ditching meat and eggs forever. I am not there yet peeps, BABY STEPS! So until then I will continue to eat small portions of those dreaded animal parts and carry on with my protein intake!

My Take on Take Out!

Ok, I guess I’d be a hypocrite to say that I never eat take out, there is a big difference between take out and fast food my friends! Yes I am all about convience on those days when life has you running in circles, but I do not make my stops at the big giant Arches or any of those places.. This is what I fancy for my take out meal

Now as a post op, all 9 will not be consumed in one sitting, this actually counts as 3 meals for me. I only eat 3 pieces at a time and I do not use the soya packet as the sodium is just too much for me! (personal choice only) So I thank you Bento Sushi http://www.bentosushi.com/en/ for providing me with the most awesome take out lunch ever!

 

What I’m currently obsessing on!

THIS GUY! Yup I love you Anderson Cooper, I PVR his new talk show daily. He is the new O! His laugh makes me giggle and I have the biggest crush! He does all his shows with heart, amazing content and real stories that affect each and everyone of us! I just finished watching his Food Revolution Part 2, about a young girl who weighs in it 320lbs, and it really brings to light the desperate state we are in regarding childhood obesity. 1 in 3 teens are overweight? That is a scary statistic. Are we as parents to blame, I say yes! We are the ones who provide, cook and stock our kitchens. Please think about what you are buying the next time you enter the grocery store. SHOP THE PERIMETER of the store. There is nothing down the aisles that you need! Ok well maybe coffee ! However, what we as parents need to instill in our kids at an early age is that fruits and veggies are good! No you do not need to load them up with brown sugar to make them good either! I try each and everyday to include healthy meal items for my family and stick by the motto, If it wasn’t picked from a tree or pulled from the ground, don’t eat it! Ok enough preaching, here is my other obsession

My magazine subscriptions, I have about 12 yearly ones currently and you know what, I am ok with that! I do not drink,smoke or eat fast food so if this is my vice, I’ll take it! I am a voracious reader who devours as many books and articles I can get my hands on. I retain as much info as I can from these! I also love to collect recipes from these mag’s, there is a wealth of information in magazines that could change your life or lifestyle in general. So to the nay sayer’s who claim it’s a waste of money- I say BOO to you!   Ok , enough for now, I have some Anderson to catch up on!

Ciao!
