Pretty and Clean

September 29, 2015

Yesterday in a nutshell.

I walked 3 miles. I registered for a 5K. Yippee! I finally made it over to visit a friend of mine who has a new baby. Adorable. I forgot how much Mike and I both love Quinoa. I’m addicted to these stupid sweat pants that I bought at Walmart a few weeks ago. 

Yep, bought em in Dark Gray, Light Gray, Black and Light Gray Capri’s! The most important thing to me when deciding what to wear for the day? Being comfy. This is what you will find me in 90% of the time. Tank top and comfy pants. Seriously though, who would NOT want these Walmart gems??? Guys….they have pockets!


Oh, and…my doggies were groomed yesterday and now they are pretty and clean.

Speaking of pretty and clean…..

We’ve been doing a few things around the house to clean it up since it is 16 years old. Hopefully the landscape project that was started last week will be finished by the end of today and the yard will look pretty and clean. So many of the shrubs were dying, we decided to have all of them removed and start over.

We have a painter coming today to make the baseboards and window sills and Mike’s office look all pretty and clean. It feels good to be getting things done and freshening up the house a bit.

My mom is coming over for coffee any minute. She’s always pretty and clean.

I have plans to go to dinner tonight with girlfriends. I probably won’t be able to leave the house today for an exercise class, so maybe Yoga on Demand?

Now if the dogs could just move in with my daughter and we could get all new carpet. Ahhhhh, pretty and clean.

Here are yesterday’s eats….

Pre-Breakfast – 3 PPV

Frothy Coffee made with Pumpkin Spice Coffee and sprinkled with Pumpkin Pie Spice, Un-pictured Almonds



Breakfast – 4 PPV

Thank’s Ronda. Your suggestion of eating the apples on the pancakes was delicious!!

Pumpkin Pancake’s topped with 1 T. Pumpkin Butter and Warm Cinnamon Apples….Yes I am all ready for Pumpkin!



Lunch –  6 PPV

Quinoa Bowl made with 1/2 C Cooked Quinoa, 1/4 C Black Beans, 4 Scrambled Egg Whites, Salsa and One Queso Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge



Snack – 2 PPV

150 g Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt with Vanilla Flavored Stevia Drops and Cinnamon mixed in, and strawberries added.



Dinner – 12 PPV

This is an awful picture! Dinner was odd. I made a Quinoa Skillet with leftover chicken, but there really wasn’t enough for Mike and I each to have dinner, so I gave him most of it, and I looked for something else to eat with my portion.

Two Veggie Burgers (5 PPV), Avocado (2 PPV), Red Bell Pepper strips (0 PPV) Quinoa Skillet (5 PPV), Strawberries (0 PPV)

I can eat 26 PPV a day.

I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise, and eat them if I choose.

I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

    Yikes. That’s hot! It’s in the 70’s now, and that is my absolute favorite. I’ll eat a little extra pumpkin for you!

  4. Thanks to me? They’re your recipes!!!! 😜 Pumpkins – apples – cinnamon … How could any thing go wrong ? I’m just patiently waiting for fall here – I start seeing all these pumpkin recipes on Pinterest every year around this time and here it’s still in the hundreds – 108 yesterday, 104 today … We usually don’t cool down here in the SW desert until the end of October – But I did have frozen pumpkin purée in my protein soothe this morning!
