One Long Day

June 7, 2017 — 8 Comments

Yesterday was one of those days that I thought would never end. I still had so many things to get done last night at 9:00. I finally turned off the lights and walked away from it all. I like going to bed with all things done, the kitchen counter tops empty, the blankets folded and put away in the living room. You know, things are done. I feel restless if I go to bed with things unfinished. I’ve gone to bed before with things “undone” and had to get up and do them so I could go to sleep. I know. I’m weird. I know. I know.

I worked my meeting yesterday, where I have some of the best WW members out there. Last week we talked about numbers and how they describe us, but they do NOT define us. When the members walked in to weigh yesterday, I had this waiting for them.


It felt good to start the meeting off reminding them of this. Who doesn’t want to hear that they are amazing?

After the meeting, I had to take both pups to the vet. A weeks salary later, we came home. Tucker has really bad allergies, so we’re trying something new for him and Mishka, the 15 year old, has a UTI. Poor pups.

After coming home from the vet, I was off to visit my cousin at the nursing home. My mom hasn’t been feeling so great, so she skipped this trip. I was trying really hard to get out for a visit every other Tuesday, but it just didn’t happen during the month of May. We might have to try for the first Tuesday of each month for a while. I can tell that she is upset about our lack of visits this month too. Here is some good news and some bad news. Her old next door neighbor (best friends!) fell and injured her leg about two weeks ago, and is at the same facility. Bad news obviously that she was hurt, but happy that my cousin has her friend to visit with daily, for awhile anyhow.

I came home, made dinner, then watched just a few minutes of this. It’s happening……

Oh, and when I walked in the door, Mike told me that when he started working on the bathroom last night, he found a dead bat in the tub. Yep.


These are my steps for the day. How can such a busy day bring you so little steps??? Sometimes you just can’t get it all done and you just have to be okay with that.

I guess yesterday was my rest day for the StepBet. Oh the irony!


I slept a solid 9 1/2 hours, so apparently I really was tired. Listen to your body.

It’s a great day for a food truck lunch!

Happy Hump Day!

Breakfast – 4 SP

This was going to be an omelette, then a frittata, then back to an omelette.

I call it….Frittomelette. It’s ugly but it was good!

Egg Whites, Veggies, 1/2 Slice Center Cut Bacon, 1 Wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese topped with 22 g Avocado with 1 tsp Nut Butter and fruit.


Lunch – 10 SP

All that Chicken that I grilled on Sunday is really coming in handy! I bought new Square plates at Target. They are deep and big and I love them! I might be just a tad proud of my Avocado Rose. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mixed Greens, 5 oz Grilled Chicken, Peppers, Onion, Tomatoes, 80g Avocado and 2 T. Bolthouse Salad Dressing.


Snacks – 10 SP

Oops. This was an accident. I had a small handful of Raw Cashews (3 SP) and still wanted something crunchy with salt.

I opened up the new bag of Trader Joe’s Roasted Plantains, ate a few, then ate a few more. I was counting them, but just wasn’t thinking about the points! Glad I had a low point breakfast!

30 Chips – 7 SP


Dinner – 7 SP

Salmon, Asparagus and this Butternut Squash that is shaped like Crinkle Cut Fries that I found at Trader Joe’s.

I like to switch things up once in a while, so yesterday I picked a WW meeting to go to that I’ve never been to, then found a park to walk in that I’ve never walked in, and I finished listening to my book on tape, which I’ve never done before.

The WW meeting was great and I love the Leader, Liz. The park had more moms and kids under the age of 5 than anything I’ve ever seen. I like the way that my book ended.

Have you ever listened to a book on tape? I’m not sure how I feel about it. This particular book is a memoir and was narrated by the the author.


The voice that she spoke with through the entire book was very monotone. The memoir is about her upbringing as a child in a polygamist family and her story was very sad.  I found it hard to listen to at times. I’m aware that the voice matched the tone of the story, but I think I would have preferred to read this story and conjure up my own idea of her expressions and her voice throughout the story.

I’ll listen to another book on tape and see what I think. Maybe listening to a memoir for my first book on tape wasn’t such a great idea?



Yesterday was the first day of the StepBet, and this is actually just a warm up week and doesn’t count in the “bet”, but I’m treating it as though it does.

The app sets your goal for you based on your past activity and your daily step goal that you have set for yourself. (I’m pretty sure this is how it works.)

The StepBet is 4 Active Days (9,727 steps for me), 2 Stretch Days (12,027 steps for me) and 1 rest day.

Yesterday was a success and I plan to complete all six weeks successfully! 

Here are yesterday’s eats!

Breakfast – 7 SP

A Bar…in the Car.


Lunch – 8 SP

Mixed Greens, Grilled Chicken, Berries, Red Onion, Raw Slivered Onions, Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar.


Snack – 2 SP

Premier Protein Vanilla in a cup of Iced Coffee


Dinner – 10 SP

Mixed Greens, lots and lots of veggies, Grilled Chicken, Bolthouse Salad Dressing and Avocado.

“love the life you live, live the life you love”

Hello Monday!!

June 5, 2017 — 4 Comments

It’s going to be a full week and starting my Sunday off with a hot yoga class was the perfect way to get the week going!

I meal prepped yesterday, worked at getting in a lot of water and made mental notes about the rest of the week and the best times to get my steps in.

Today starts my first ever StepBet! I follow Amy at myjourney2goal on Instagram and she is doing a Step Bet that starts today and last for 6 weeks.

From Amy…..
“Here is how it works:
-You must have an Apple Watch or Fitbit to participate. -Pay $40 -StepBet calculates your step goals based on your recent activity. You have 4 active days, 2 stretch days & 1 “free” day. -The first week is a “warm-up” week so you don’t have to make your goals that week, though I highly encourage it!
-Everyone who makes their weekly goals splits the pot at the end!”

I was looking for new ways to challenge myself with my steps and I’m really looking forward to being a part of this challenge!

Have a great week!

Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Breakfast – 12 SP

Sweet Potato Hash with Chicken Apple Sausage topped with two Eggs. Bacon on the side.


Snack – 2 SP

Looking for a low point sweet treat? You know I love my nut butters.

Pear with 1 tsp Trader Joe’s Mixed Nut Butter, Cinnamon and 1/2 tsp Cocoa Nibs (typically found in the health food area of the grocery store)


Lunch – 10 SP

One Tortilla filled with Chicken Salad (but more salad than Chicken! I went a little overboard with the grapes and celery, but I do love the sweetness and the crunch!), Trader Joe’s Roasted Plantains and an Orange.


Dinner – 10 SP

I promise you that I have never made this Fall Chopped Salad and thought to myself….”Eh, dinner was okay I guess.”

Every time that I make this we both LOVE it!

“love the life you live, live the life you love”

When I skip a few days of blogging it either means that the days are just too busy to fit in a blog, or I’m eating and drinking crap and I need to figure out why so I can blog about it. lol

Well, both of these things happen to be true here. I have been busy and I’ve also been busy eating and drinking.

After working my early morning meeting on Thursday, I ran a couple of errands, then met some girlfriends for a birthday lunch for a friend where we sipped on wine.


My salad was delicious! The dressing on the side really wasn’t even needed with all of the deliciousness already in this bowl.


After lunch a few of us went to a patio for a cold beer (okay, we had two cold beers.) I went for a long walk when I got home, then skipped dinner. I think I had an Apple. I just wasn’t hungry.

Friday morning I was out the door early to head downtown to the West Bottoms. Here I am patiently waiting at a stop light. I swear.

I seriously do NOT think that my bangs are that white in person!! Are they???


The West Bottoms is the place with all of the vintage shops, so I like to go early and shop and spend half of my paycheck before the day even gets started. I did not disappoint! After I figure out where I’m going to hang what I bought, I’ll show it to you.

Friday after work (and a long shower…nobody wants to smell like a cheeseburger all night long), I met a few girlfriends for Happy Hour (cuz it’s Friday night!). We all got caught up, a few girls had to leave, then there were three. We invited the husbands over and we all went to dinner, where I enjoyed Street Taco’s and a flight of Beer. Dang it. I’ve liked beer since Middle School. KIDDING!! Just seeing if you’re paying attention.

I’ve been trying new Stouts. These were so good! Think Coffee and Beer combined. Only if you think that sounds good of course. If you think that sounds gross, then, well, just don’t think about it.


At some point during my Friday evening I got a text from my daughter Tess telling me that her Instagram post was shared on the Weight Watcher Instagram Story! Weight Watchers has over 590,000 followers on Instagram, so Tess was pretty stoked, as you can imagine. That’s a lot of people reading your post!

She was celebrating #NationalDonutDay and made mud_hustler’s 1 SmartPoints donut. That’s the same guy that I got the Big Ass Waffle recipe from. He is kind of a big deal on the WW Connect App and with the Weight Watcher Social Media team. Tess is on the Social Media team with Southwest Airlines, so anything Social Media related can be a fun topic when your own post is shared.

This is her original post.



Well, Weight Watchers “liked” her post and so did Mud, so she was all excited. Then it got even better because WW asked her if they could share her post! Cool, right? And now…..Mud Hustler is following Tess on her sippinongymandjuice Instagram page! Yay! All sorts of fun stuff.

Here is the WW share.

When you slide up on Instagram, WW even linked to her blog, I may be partial because I’m her mom, but I think it’s a great blog!


Okay, so If you know what all of that means, then you know that she was ecstatic and in the social media world, it’s kind of a big deal.

If none of that makes any sense to you whatsoever, then it’s all good. Just know that Tess was very excited and that I was very excited for her. 

Can you handle some even more exciting news??

Our son in law, Cortney, recently got a new job and he and our daughter Anne and their two kids moved to Oklahoma. I’ve shared that already.

Anne and Cortney have been together since they were 14 years old. They are both now 28. They have two kids with one on the way. We have watched these two work really hard in their young years. They bought their first home at a young age, they are doing a great job raising two awesome kids, Cortney has worked hard and continued to take college classes after high school graduation and Anne  opened her own salon and was very successful with her business.

Yesterday, we watched Cortney graduate from college! Super proud of him and so happy for the whole family!

Congrats Cort!


This picture is funny for a couple of reasons. One, Malik is totally doing a photo bomb between Cortney and Mike. Two, I am in the picture beside Anne. Mike and I decided to take the convertible with the top down since it was nice outside. I guess I should have gone to the bathroom to look in a mirror at some point. My hair was in a pony tail but I have TWO very large hair wings sticking straight out from each side of my head and nobody told me!! My shirt is not at all flattering either. So….I’m out!


After dinner, we all went out for BBQ, where I did not have any beer, but drank about three gallons of water. We went to the same BBQ place that we went to with Tess and Manuel last weekend.

I ordered the Burnt Ends and a Veggie Kabob. I passed on the bread and whatever that white stuff was. Horseradish something??

We got home at around 3:00. I walked in the house, went right to my room and put on pajama’s and crawled into bed where I slept for over two hours. I’m not a napper typically, but that felt good.

After my nap, I walked aimlessly around the grocery store for over an hour and came home with only a few things. Nothing sounded good, I wasn’t particularly hungry, I had no plan and I guess I was still half asleep.

I came home and told Mike that dinner was on his own. He grabbed some take out and I was back in bed before 10:00.

I’m rested now!

I started off my Sunday with a Hot Yoga Class! It was an awesome class this morning. Extra Hot!


Yoga put me in a great mood and I came home and started pulling out of the fridge what food I did have.

Butternut Squash to Roast. Bacon to cook up for the week. Chicken Apple Sausage to have for the week. Chicken Breast to thaw and marinade and grill tonight, a Salmon fillet for lunch one day and a Veggie Hash for breakfast today.

I have a Rotisserie Chicken to use in some Chicken Salad and to use for our Salad for tonights dinner.


In the fitness department of things in this last week, I did get in one Yoga Class with Tess here and three days of over 12,000 steps, but my goal is to do that five days a week. Not terrible, but needs improvement.

Most of you that are regular readers, know that I have always struggled with my socializing choices and the summer months always seem more difficult to me.

There is something about the ambiance of a Cold Beer on a Patio with friends that I really enjoy. Yes, I can enjoy non alcoholic beverages too, and I do often, I just need to do so more often in order for me to have more balance.

This week, I will work on my Summer cravings and finding balance so I can enjoy them.

I have a lot of extra things on the calendar this week, so it will be a busy one!

Oh….Mike is starting our Master Bedroom Demolition, (I can hear the walls coming down as I type this!) so be expecting some dramatic blog post from yours truly about that experience!! He is gutting the whole thing and moving walls and putting in heated floors and a whole slew of other things. I think it all sounds overwhelming, but he has promised that if it starts to feel like too much, he will hire help. Prayers please. (Okay, I’m already being dramatic. I know.)

I hope you all have an awesome week planned!

It was a busy and rainy day at the food truck on Wednesday. We even had a four legged friend stop by!


His name was Petey and he was delighted to have a bite of burger!


We could tell that he was not enjoying the rain. After a burger, we were able to get his name and number from his collar and call his owner, who happened to be out looking for him. Happy Ending!

After coming home from the truck, the sun finally came out!

I got some steps in before dinner.


After dinner I crashed. I think I was asleep by 9:30 and it was heaven.

That is all. More of the same for the rest of the week. I’ll try to come up with something exciting to say tomorrow.


Breakfast – 7 SP

Scrambled Egg Whites topped with Smashed Avocado, Light English Muffin topped with 2 tsp Almond Butter and Blueberries


Lunch – 8 SP

Un-pictured bites of Buffalo Chicken at the food truck.

Leftover Mango Salsa mixed with Leftover Grilled Chicken, Red Onions and Blueberries.

This was really yummy and now I’m anxious to make that Grilled Shrimp and Mango Salad from the day before!

“love the life you live, live the life you love”

After working my WW meeting yesterday, I called my mom to see if she would like to meet for lunch. It was a perfect day for a short walk in Downtown Overland Park and it was good to get her out of the house. We had a good girly chat.

When I got home, I had inventory to do. The one part of the WW At Work Leader job that I must admit that I don’t love, is the mini store you basically keep at your house. Four times a year you do inventory, and yesterday was my first experience at that. 

After inventory, I had food on the brain. I had bought all of the ingredients the day before for the dinner I had in mind. I make a lot of recipes from Trina over at Every time I make one of her recipes, I love it!

Yesterday I made her Grilled Shrimp and Mango Salad.

Just as I was wrapping up dinner prep, the sky turned pretty dark so I decided to cook the shrimp in the skillet. As I was heating up the oil in the skillet, I decided what the heck, I’ll give the grill a go. I went out and pulled the grill over right by the door. I lucked out and was able to grill dinner in a light rain. I’m so glad I grilled this!

I wasn’t sure if Mike would like this, but dinner was a hit!

Here are the rest of yesterday’s eats…..

Breakfast – 3 SP

Veggie and Egg White Scramble topped with 30g Avocado and fruit on the side.


Lunch – 10 SP

I ordered the Grilled Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Salad with Salsa as my dressing. This was delicious!!


Snack – 2 SP

Doing WW Inventory makes you want a WW Snack!


Dinner – 14 SP

Salad – 5 SP

Wine – 9 SP

This salad was delicious and my picture does not do it justice. The shrimp marinade and the homemade Vinaigrette were easy and oh so good!

A Happy Long Weekend

May 31, 2017 — 2 Comments

Such a great long weekend. Everything that I hoped that it would be.

I picked up my daughter Tess and her boyfriend Manuel at the airport early Friday morning. We spent Friday morning and afternoon relaxing and getting caught up. Our phone chats are always good, but those in person convo’s curled up on the couch or sitting on the deck with a cup of joe are always so much better.

Friday night was a family get together that included two month old granddaughter, Wrenley and two week old grandson, Sawyer.

Wrenley is so big already!


Sawyer is just a little newbie still. So sweet.


The evening was spent holding and kissing babies. Who needs anything more? Oh, and maybe dogs.


I love those cheeks!


Such a proud Papa! So sweet to see Jake with his little girl.


Uncle Jake meeting Sawyer for the first time.


Sawyer Graye. So sweet.


Manuel might be in love with Wrenley. I mean….she is adorable.

I don’t have to say anything about this girl. You already know.  My heart, my heart.


For our evening entertainment, Mike thought it would be fun to pull out some old home videos. This is just after our wedding as we pulled away from the church. My dad bought a 1938 Packard Limo in 1963 (three years before I was born) and through my lifetime I have been on many rides in this car.

He sold it about 5 years ago. It was kind of a sad day. I have a lot of childhood memories in this car from simple Sunday ice cream trips to my 9th Grade Farewell dance.

Anyhow, it was fun to be able to share this car with Mike and have my dad drive us away from the church on our wedding day.


We also watched our home video of when Mike and I and our four kids moved into our house. It will be 18 years in just a few short days. The video was hilarious to watch with everyone. What a bunch of goofballs we all were.

Now we have these new goofballs that we call grand children. I have no idea what is going on here, but I’m sure its super important.


This I know for a fact is important. She is a very serious block builder and I can’t seem to take my eyes off of her.


So many snuggles.


We grilled out…..Chicken Brats, Hot Dogs and Chicken Breast. Nothing fancy, but low in points and everyone seemed to be satisfied.


Eventually, everyone had to go home and we all went to bed, but it was such a great Friday night holding babies.

It was so great having Tess in town, but so odd having our daughter Anne and her family not here now that they have moved to Oklahoma. I’m all about change, but sometimes it does take some getting used to. 

Saturday morning? Hot Yoga with Tess while Manuel went for a run.

I was so happy to be back at Yoga. I let my foot issues keep me away, and really while it didn’t feel great on my foot, it did feel great to be at the Yoga studio.

After Yoga, a nice big breakfast of Sweet Potato Hash, Bacon and Eggs.

During Savasana (the last few minutes of Yoga where you lay flat on your back and think of nothing) I was dreaming of Sweet Potato Hash. My stomach was growling. I couldn’t help it!


Lots of coffee on the deck after breakfast.


My mom came over and joined us. Then a crazy thunderstorm rolled in and it was just so dang cozy and dark!

After the storm, mom went home and Tess and Manuel had plans to go visit friends.

I took a bath and read. Mike worked. Seriously, this was an awesome day.

Yoga…coffee…yummy breakfast hash….thunderstorm….more coffee….and a bath!!


When Tess and Manuel got home, we all agreed that a movie night and frozen pizza sounded perfect.

We rented Hidden Figures. Loved the movie and I think we were all in bed by 10:00.

Sunday morning I was feeling waffles. We added cooked bacon and cinnamon chips to the batter. Uh…..YUMMMMM.


Waffle Egg Sandwich anybody?


After breakfast, more deck time.


Eventually, coffee began to come out of our ears, so we decided to get on with our day.

The boys headed out for a ride in the Convertible, then to the driving range. Tess and I were undecided. Then we decided. Beers on a patio conveniently located by the driving range.


Tess was telling me all about her new workouts…..


The boys eventually joined us!


We shared an appetizer called the Rueben Roll. I would order that again in a heartbeat!!!


We decided to have BBQ for dinner, since you know, it is a Kansas City thing and we have not introduced Manuel to all of the BBQ that KC has to offer. We headed down the street from the pub to Jack Stack BBQ, where I ordered that delicious plate of Shrimp (swimming in BBQ Butter) with a Veggie Kabob. Someone else ate my bread and I ate everyone else’s pickles!


After our late lunch, a nap on the deck before heading to the airport.

It was great spending time with family and relaxing. We packed in a lot of stuff but I never felt stressed or rushed. We planned nothing really and just let the weekend happen. Sometimes those are the best kind of weekends.

I tracked every bite of food and every drink of beer and wine. 

We got in our Hot Yoga class on Saturday and I took a 3 mile walk when we got home from the airport Sunday night.

Monday morning I headed out for a 3 mile walk and I stopped at the high school on the way home and did four flights of stairs. I don’t know where that came from but I am feeling it in my calves today. It was beautiful outside.


It was a relaxing day at home on Monday with nothing planned. That can be a really good thing sometimes. Mike had his own “to do” list while I read on the deck in between 25 loads of laundry. (Slight exaggeration here.)

For dinner, I decided to try grilled Cauliflower. Olive Oil and Sea Salt. Easy, different and good.

I also had a yummy bunless burger topped with tomato, red onion, Primal Kitchen Chipotle Mayo and Avocado. Dinner was great!


That sums up the long weekend here.

I hope that you all had a great weekend and that you were able to enjoy a few extra hours with family and friends.

 “love the life you live, live the life you love”

Time Off….

May 26, 2017

I’m not taking the weekend off of tracking. I’m going to track like a WW fool over this long weekend because we have a lot going on and I want to feel good about my choices at the end of the weekend, but I am taking the weekend off of blogging so there is plenty of time for family fun.

I picked up my daughter Tess and her boyfriend Manuel early this morning and we plan to spend the weekend holding babies and spending time with family.

A cookout here tonight and spontaneous stuff for the rest of the weekend.

I hope that you all have a great weekend and be safe! I hope that you get an extra day off to enjoy family and friends.

We started off our morning with these pancakes!

I made the Big Ass Waffle batter and made pancakes. We shared the recipe for one which gave each of us four cute little cakes. We topped each pancake with 1 tsp of Almond Butter, 1/2 T of Pure Maple Syrup, 1/2 Banana and stuffed a slice of bacon in there.

This plate….

6 Smartpoints.


I just made myself a yummy beverage and now we’re headed to the deck!

Lime LaCroix, Frozen Strawberries (you know I picked these!), lime and ice.

So refreshing.

0 SmartPoints.

HapPy WeekEnd!!!

“love the life you live, live the life you love”

So….Just Food Again

May 25, 2017

Wednesday was spent working at the food truck, then paying bills and paperwork crud, then dinner, then a 90 minute bath and some reading. You know you might be in there too long when you have to add hot water…..twice.

It really did feel good.

I did crappy on steps yesterday, but I forgot to mention in the post before that I had a great step day on Tuesday.

Yesterday – Blah Blah Blah….whatever. Standing in the food truck for four hours doesn’t give you ANY step cred!!



Tuesday – A nice walk with Becky as we got caught up with each other.

Okay, food…

Breakfast – 6 SP

Pancakes made using the Big Ass Waffle batter.

Topped with Warm Cinnamon Apples and 1 T. Pure Maple Syrup


Lunch – 12 SP

I packed some raw veggies and an egg to take to the food truck.

I had a Burger with an Egg on my mind. Why have I not done this at the food truck before???

Bed of mixed greens, Burger, Egg, and the Salsa and 1 T. of the Jalapeรฑo Aioli that we put on our Boom Boom Burgers.

Lunch was awesome!!


Dinner – 15 SP

Baked Almond Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard and Fruit.

Chicken Fingers – 10. I ate more than pictured here. They’re REALLY good!

Honey Mustard – 5

Just the Food

May 25, 2017

Busy day, no time for spilling all my thoughts here, but need to post my food. I’ll have a hard time going to sleep if I don’t do it.

Maybe something will sound good to you?


Breakfast – 8 SP

Sweet Potato Hash made with Peppers and Onions and Zucchini topped with two Soft Boiled Eggs.

For Soft Boiled Eggs, bring water to a boil. Add eggs and boil for 6 min. Remove eggs from boiling water and place in a bowl of Ice Water for 2 min.

Peel and enjoy.


Lunch – 5 SP

Bell Peppers, Hummus and One Chicken Brat on Toast with Dijon Mustard.


Snack – 4 SP

Still hungry after lunch….

Two Mama Lupe’s Low Carb Whole Wheat Tortilla’s with Hummus


Snack – 2 SP

Enjoyed an afternoon Iced Coffee with this Caramel flavor of Premier Protein.


Dinner – 9 SP

Leftover Pot Roast from Sunday and steamed Broccoli for a little color!

This doesn’t look extremely delicious, but there is a bunch of juice under all of that food and it tasted really good with the broccoli!

Snack – 4 SP

I decided to use my last 2 Smartpoints for the day on 1/2 cup of this delicious Vanilla Ice Cream, then I ate a cup instead.

Really shouldn’t eat out of the container……

I love Dancing With The Stars. 

I wanna dance.
