Pizza + Wine + Bravo = good life. Is there anything better? Let me be real with you. This week I have been exhausted… my workout, eating, and life plans didn’t go as I thought they would.
The BF started a new job, which I am pumped for, don’t get me wrong, but he is working a lot. I hate it, I’m trying not to be bitter about it, but I am. It’s Friday night and he will be at work until at least 8. There are some nights where I have some work to do after the normal working hours, but I think I may be better at communicating that to him. I feel like no matter how long you’ve been together, the communication always has to be worked on or rather, you have to give each other a break. It doesn’t help that I feel exhausted. Exhaustion + annoyance rarely ends well 😉 So now I’m drinking this:
and watching this:
Oye. Trying to focus on the good things 🙂
QA: How has your week been? Better or worse than you thought? How do you turn your week around when you feel down?
Good evening, all! Hope everyone had a good Wednesday!
So here is what I had today to eat, however, a few things are missing: half of the eggs and 2 pieces of turkey bacon, 4-5 chocolate covered pretzels, a few pieces of pita chips, an apple, and a yogurt.
note to self: don’t come home and start making dinner while absolutely starving, you will eat chocolate covered pretzels ;D
Anywho! Here we go:
breakfast: egg whites with ketchup; 3 pieces of turkey bacon
lunch: roast beef wrap with lettuce, avocado, and mustard; Dannon Pure yogurt [so good]; chocolate covered pretzels
dinner: chicken fajitas; onions and peppers; avocado; cheese; lettuce
QA: What’d you eat today?
Man, did I make a good dinner tonight (if I have to say so myself!)!

My only tweak to the recipe… I used ground turkey meat instead of sausage! Otherwise, followed it as detailed in the link.
QA: What’s your favorite new recipe?
