Happy Thursday!

I love Thursdays... because they mean that tomorrow is Friday!

Last night's class dragged on forever and I did not get home until after 10pm, just in time to whip up a quick english muffin, make lunch for today, and lay my head on my pillow. I was fast asleep within 15 minutes of walking in the door... literally.

Moving onwards...

One year ago today I was sitting on the sandy beaches of Aruba next to the love of my life. Little did I know that within hours he would be down on one knee proposing to me...

Here is a glimpse back at us a year ago today...


On our way to dinner the night he proposed (I still had no clue of what was to come at this point...)

Alone on the beach. Just us, the waves, and the stars... and of course a bottle of wine!

Moments before he proposed...


And in less than 6 months we will be walking down the aisle and saying I DO! emoticon

Today starts CARB CYCLING! and today is the first low-carb day which means my goal is to eat no more than 125g of carbs and to eat 80g of protein (which as a vegetarian is very hard to do!).... with today's meal plan I am very close to both of those goals!


1 whole egg, 1 egg white, 1/4 cup chopped green pepper, 1/4 cup chopped onion, 1/2 cup spinach, and feta cheese all scrambled together! ... with 16 oz. of water!



1 10" multi-grain tortilla quesadilla stuffed with 1/2 cup of black beans, 1/4 cup chopped pepper, 1/4 cup chopped onion, Trader Joe's fresh salsa, and 1/2 cup of shredded mexican cheese blend

Mid-Afternoon Snack:

1 serving of cocoa roasted almonds

Tonight turned into a nightmare... no exercise and I downed 3/4 of a small pizza.

Calories: more than 1,600
Carbs (goal under 125g): 160g
Protein (goal over 80g): 77g
Fat: more than 60g
Sodium: more than 2,600mg

My friend invited me to go indoor skydiving with her Sunday! I am super excited!!!!!!! I hear it is just like the real thing minus the jumping out of the plane...
