The Payoff

“The most prepared are the most dedicated”

Haiii everyone!  It’s Sunday, let’s do the happy dance 😉 you’re wondering about my quote it’s because today is a very big day for my boyfriend who is now sitting in front of a computer taking his medical boards licensing exam 😮 I have never seen anyone put in so much effort into studying for an exam ever. He has literally not left his apartment for months except for work and groceries.

Today is finally the big payoff so I’m wishing him all the best and I can’t wait for him to finish so we can go out to eat 😀 I think this may actually be our first restaurant date “gasp!!” We never go out to eat because we love making our own food or if we do eat out it’s after a night of drinking and we usually end up at a pizza joint lol But tonight is very special and we have been planning Chinese for a long time now. I’m super excited! This will bring him one step closer to being a practicing MD. I’m so proud “tear”

My morning was pretty mellow. I woke up, went to the gym for a little cardio and came home to grub on an awesome breakfast

Chocolate Banana Oats

I’m really loving those bunny graham crackers! Today though, I added a little something extra that I found at Publix.

Cranberry Pecan
It was bogo! How in the world could I say no? I love the cranberry pieces. Overall this baby gets two thumbs up for sure.
Double Thumbs Up


Some of my past eats have been equally as yummy. On Saturday I decided to make myself a little egg muffin for lunch. I’ve been craving eggs pretty bad lately.

I think it looks so cute! Lol 😀 I made it with 2 eggs, 3 ounces of ham, and some cheese both inside and on top. I also added some red pepper flakes for heat. Yum 😀 (word of advice: Spray a lot of cooking spray in your ramekin or pyrex)

I also got inventive with my protein powder and made my casein pudding shake again with strawberries.

Protein Parfait

I love how creamy the shake comes out and with the addition of Kashi it was perfect 😉

This weekend I took advantage of my boyfriend’s ice cream machine and we made more fro-yo 😀 (Yes I know I have a problem with fro-yo and oatmeal :()

Mine 😀


That cheater threw a vitatop in there 😦 I didn’t have the calories, but I did use a 100 calorie chocolate pretzel snack pack  and a reddi-wip finish.

Hope everyday is having a great weekend 😀

  • Any recent food obsessions?

(mine are obvious hehe ;))
