I am feeling the Blogger LOVE ~ Thanks all!

I have to send a HUGE thanks to all of you ~ You are seriously helping me ROCK THE VOTE!! Words cannot describe how lucky I feel to have such fantastic followers and blogging friends! I am truly touched and beyond words……

I owe a special thanks to my good friends who gave me a shout out yesterday and to those who gave me a helped me get votes today ~ Thanks Kath, Caitlin, Bobbi & Erica for believing in my and giving a voting call!

Meghann ~ You always amaze me and are such a great friend to have! Thanks for giving your readers some incentive to make it to the voting polls and vote for me~ You Rock!!!

I am back in the lead thanks to all of you ~ Keep those VOTES coming because I have to maintain my lead through Thursday!!!

Ok ~ enough mushy, gushy stuff and onto the rest of my day. I HAD to get out at lunch because I had so much nervous energy going on ~ the suspense! I hit up the treadmill at the gym and pounded out 35 minutes of run/walk intervals. It felt amazing and I burned 369 calories.

I came back and made up a FANTASTIC Sandwich.


* 1 Slice Trader Joe’s 3-Seeded Bread, toasted

* 2 Tbsp Artichoke Hummus

* Organic Mixed Greens

* 2 Slices 97% FF honey ham & 3 slices 99% FF honey roasted turkey

* 1 slice Tillamook Colby Cheese

* Cucumber Chips aka Pickles

So amazing….I LOVE HUMMUS and Cheese on really good bread!!! I think I could eat this sammie EVERY DAY!

For dessert, I had a nice fruit salad that I only managed to eat 1/2 of before getting pulled into a meeting.


* 1 Plurine

* 1 Puot

* Handful of raspberries & blueberries

All together with fizzy water (minus 1 bite ~ oops!), it was a VERY filling lunch!


When I got out of my meeting, I had this HUGE plate of bites sitting at my desk ~ What?!?!?!?! Co-workers can be such a bad influence I tell ya! One of my co-workers hit up The Model Bakery and brought treats for us to all share. They said that I usually like to just try them and gave me one bite of each LOL…..My other co-worker bought my FAVORITE cake on the bottom right ~ Strawberry Fields……I pondered taking it home to The Husband, but, then, I decided to dig in.


As you can see, I didn’t get very far before I was on over the top sugar load. Surprisingly I didn’t really like too many of the things (even all that Red Velvet Frosting) ~ shocker huh?!


Needless to say I didn’t need my healthy afternoon snack *sigh*

I am off to figure out dinner for The Husband before he has to go to bed. Maybe I should start getting up with him at 3 am to get my workouts in…I just think that might be too early!
