Dessert/ Dinner

Oh, Jillian

hey y’all 🙂

Hope your Tuesday was fabulous. Mine was interesting…a few interesting dramatic moments followed by a calming evening spent working at the yoga studio. I can’t complain!

Before heading out, I snacked on an apple with almond butter!


And then, lucky me, my mama had dinner left for me on the stove when I got home at 8!



A big salad with walnuts, apples, carrots and Annie’s goddess dressing and blueberry maple chicken (out of the maple syrup cookbook!) and a baked sweet potato. So good!

As I watched the season premiere of The Biggest Loser, I stuffed my face with a toasted arnold sandwich thin with chocolate peanut butter. Take that, Jillian and Bob!! 😉


Got to go….this is getting good!

    It seems like I’m always eating dessert while watching the biggest loser. You’d think it would encourage me to put the chocolate down! 😉

    I am totally sitting on my couch catching up on my reader and watching The Biggest Loser too! Lol. I think like all of blog land is, I love it!

    And I am totally thinking about dessert as I watch these people work their booty off. Is that a bad thing? Your dessert looks delish. Off the couch and to the kitchen I go 🙂

    Have a good night, enjoy TBL!

    Love apple and almond butter – one of my fave snacks – so satisfying!!! Now that Honeycrisp apples are back in season, I’ll be having this snack several times a week!

    your chicken looks fantastic!

    I made a blueberry chicken that was awesome a while back. It’s getting harder and harder to find the berries now that it’s turning to fall. 🙁

    I’m in love with this show and I totally stuffed my face with dinner during it and didn’t care whatsoever! But I think I have some moments of insanity where I would love to work out w/Bob & Jillian b/c I think having some intensity coming at you is a good way to re-motivate yourself. Already can’t wait for next week!

    Oh and the dark chocolate dreams pb? Heaven in a jar 🙂

    Oh you are so lucky to be able to watch BL! 🙂 I’m hoping to find it online since we don’t have cable here in Japan, but hate waiting the week it takes NBC to release it on their web site!

    Jillian was even more aggressive then normal tonight!

    I actually totally missed my workout so I did the 30 day shred while watching. Usually I am much more likely to be drinking wine and eating cheese 🙂

    Haha, that reminds me of me….eating ice cream last night while I watched the BL!!! In my defense, 1) it was my birthday, and 2) it was “healthier” soy ice cream 😉 Does that make it better?

    I told The Boy recently that part of the reason I love going to the gym so late on Tuesday evenings is that I like watching Biggest Loser while I am there, LOL. It’s something I enjoy watching but don’t normally watch if I am home. 🙂
