Valentines Day xoxo

I have had the flu all week and fell behind in work, school, and running ūüė¶

Now that I have had a couple of days to get it all together, I will share my Valentine with you.  he is such a cute little BRAT!

¬†Isn‚Äôt he a cutie pie? I got him his easter clothes the other day…

My handsome man surprised me with these after working a 12pm to 2am on Saturday.  He promised me we were not doing anything for each other.  When I got home these were waiting for me on the counter.

He is the best!

I couldn’t even force myself to eat anything from Monday-Wednesday.  Thursday I was feeling a little better and my man had made some chicken and veggies over rice.  I tried to eat some of that.

Thursday and Friday I survived off of these:

¬†Saturday I worked a double between both of my jobs and was ravenous by the time I got off at 2am. ¬†All I could find around was pizza. ¬†Sunday and Monday I finally got a real appetite back and didn‚Äôt have to work doubles. ¬†I spent all of my time catching up on sleep, studying, and spending time with my handsome man (we managed to pack in 3 dates in two days). ¬†We both work two jobs and sometimes don;t get to spend enough quality time together…. ¬†I am always glad for the days we get to snuggle and relax ūüôā

 Clearly, this is so not a good workout week of healthy eating week for me.  Starting with the flu and ending in a pizza gorge. I start my healthy eating plan and workouts tomorrow to make up for last week.  I am rested and my fridge is well stocked with all HEALTHY foods. YUM!!

I have a thing for eggs lately…

I have been eating vegetables and eggs at least once a day (sometimes for every meal) for two weeks! I chop up a bunch of different vegetables at the beginning of the week. Then, when I get hungry I throw some veggies in a pan and fry up an egg or two with it. I like to incorporate anything I have left over in the fridge too! I love leftover baked potatoes and mashed potatoes with eggs. ¬† I don’t know how I ever ate eggs without them. ¬†Healthy doesn’t get any easier, more convenient, or delicious than this. Not to mention this is inexpensive and a great way to use up leftovers!
