I Won!!!

Good Morning everyone!

I have some very exciting news!!  I won not one, but two giveaways in the past 2 weeks!!  I am beyond thrilled, especially as this blog is pretty new, but I’ve been an avid reader for a year! My wins:

A gift set of Yoplait goodness from Yogurt and Berries… Yoplait coupons for free yogurts and a Yoplait tote, notepad, and water bottle!  Sweet!

And today I just found out I won Stonyfield coupons from Erica!!  So excited!

I hope this lucky streak keeps up, although every blogger/reader deserves to win so I wish you all good luck as well on upcoming giveaways!! 🙂  I’ll post pics. of the goodies as soon as I get them! 🙂

THANK YOU all for being such a great, supportive, wonderful network of bloggers! 😀  YOU ALL ROCK!!

Anywho, onto the eats.

Last night for dinner I roasted up that asparagus that’s been in my fridge for a little too long haha.

I roasted the asparagus in the oven with a tsp of evoo, salt, pepper, and italian seasonings for about 30 minutes.

I am VERY annoyed because I took some great pictures of dinner and they’re…GONE.  GR! You guys will just have to visualize…

I topped the asparagus with a sprinkle of feta cheese (awesome flavor combo!) and on the side had a toasted Stop & Shop Light Raisin English Muffin with a little Smart Balance.  I also had a Yoplait Thick & Creamy Cherry Cobbler Yogurt with a couple tbsps of Optimum Power cereal sprinkled on top!

Last night I went to a bar with a few friends for a 21st birthday.  We kept it low-key, and we had a really great time.  I had two drinks, several handfuls of VERY tasty bar popcorn and on the way home we stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts and I had a Reduced-Fat Blueberry Muffin (delish!).  Not the healthiest choice in the world, but I was actually HUNGRY, probably from lack of a snack before we went out.  I had a Kashi bar in my bag, as always, however the birthday girl hadn’t had a chance to eat dinner, and not wanting her to drink on an empty stomach, I happily surrendered it!

This morning I got up eary and had a good workout:

40 minutes on the elliptical, varying intervals

15 minutes on the tread, 3.0 incline, with a brief sprint thrown in there

10 mins. abs.

Calories Burned:  430 ish

After a quick shower, I re-fueled with an oat bowl!  I LOVE my new oat bran, but was craving regular oats today!

The mix:

1/3 cup quick oats

Couple spoonfuls (probably a 1/2 cup worth) canned pumpkin

Mixed with skim milk and water until enough liquid

Sprinkle of flax (1/2 tbsp)

Sprinkle of cinn

Tbsp of Mighty Maple Love!

Small 1/2 tsp of Skippy Natural, Creamy (Old jar, trying to get rid of it!  Although, it tasted off so I think I’m going to chuck it….can’t stand wasting food!!)

Drizzle SF Maple Syrup 🙂


Delicious as always!

Today’s Agenda:
