Heat Wave?

I don’t know what is going on here but it was 72* today! How crazy is that! I mean, it’s snowing in Arizona, and people here were walking around in shorts and sandals!


I got up this morning and started my morning with a nice cardio workout. Afterward I sat down with a wonderful waffle tower. I seriously love these! Mmm, best breakfast ever.



I ate a quick lunch before heading in for another crazy day at work. I kept it simple with a turkey sandwich, apple, and carrots. The best part of lunch was a slice of banana bread that my mom baked this morning which I had as a sweet ending to my meal. Delish. Then it was off to work!




Work was even busier today than yesterday, if that’s possible. I was running around like a maniac all day. I started feeling a little weak so I snuck into the back a few times to gobble down my Peanut Butter Luna Cookie. This one was really good too but I think I liked the mint better.Ā 



My feet hurt when I got home but luckily I had a great dinner to make me feel better. Tonight we had tilapia, quinoa with mushrooms and onions, and roasted asparagus. The tilapia was baked in a sauce made from wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, cilantro, jalapenos and lime. It was really good and had a nice kick to it. Very good.



Dinner was really filling but I don’t think I could go a night without dessert even if you paid me. Tonight I had my all time favorite berries and whipped cream. I honestly have an unhealthy obsession with fat free reddi-whip. I know how fake and bad it is but I just love it so much. Honestly I think it’s in my top 5 favorite foods. How disgusting is that!? Haha who am I? Oh well, it was delicious. I may have had some more whipped cream straight from my spoon too. Oops!


I finished Breaking Dawn today and it was excellent. Thanks to everyone who recommended the Twilight series—I LOVED it! Now I need a new book to read, so some good book recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I’m so excited because tomorrow I’m going to the STEELERS game with my dad. Let’s hope the weather stays nice for it!

    Oh, it was totally 80 degrees here today! Isn’t that insane? And the high tomorrow is like 55…WTF Mississippi?!

    I want to try those Luna cookies! I’m not a fan of most of their bars, but I’m willing to try anything once šŸ˜‰

    haha I think your obsession with reddi whip is A-okay, we all need our little quirks in healthy eating here and there šŸ™‚

    I’m seriously on the last 50 pages of Breaking Dawn tonight, in fact, I think I’m going to go finish it right now! Now I need new books too, I’ll let you know if I find any!

    Hope you had a fab evening, sorry for this long post, but I had so much to say!

    ps- thanks for your message earlier, I needed that more than you could know.

    Well clearly, you stole my heat! Give it back! NOW! šŸ™‚

    Your waffle tower looks extra yummy with all those berries today! You are the waffle tower queen!

    That banana bread looks really good! And I’m going to have to try those Luna cookies after your positive reviews.

    And geez, that tilapia looks amazing! Everything is great, Sarah. And you want to know the good news about Reddi Whip? I think it’s actually made with real cream, so it’s not fake like Cool Whip! I love the fat free stuff, too! It’s what I use on my Coffee Cocoa every morning!

    I am really glad you enjoyed the Twilight series. I’m re-reading the series now, but once I’m done I’m going to start reading some of the books I got for Christmas, including Three Cups of Tea and Sarah’s Key. Have you read either of those?

    Have fun at the game!! That’s exciting!

    What’s the deal with these Luna Cookies? Are they different than the Tea Cakes? I’ve never seen them before and anything with PB equals instant šŸ™‚ from me!

    Banana bread…soooo good!

    Wow I’ve never seen those Luna cookies before, I assume they are different than the tea cakes? I’ll be on the lookout for them šŸ™‚ Love the waffle tower! Perfect breakfast šŸ™‚ Oooh and I hope you are enjoying the chocolate treats I sent !!

    Ugh its warm and muggy here too!

    That’s great you finished Twilight! I recommend “Water For Elephants.” It’s a super good book about a guy who joins a circus (don’t worry- it’s not as cheesy as it sounds!). šŸ˜›

    I’m just saying. You could have a unhealthier obsession! šŸ™‚
