No internet?? What?

on May 22, 2012

Well, I was without internet last night and part of today, but it’s no big thang! The DSL box simply went bad and the lovely people at Windstream came right out and gave me a new one!  I had my second Orthodontist appointment yesterday and it went really well!  I am one step closer to getting the metal on my teeth.

When I got there, they were really quick to get me in the back to get started.  This trip was mainly to take pictures of my teeth, and take some impressions of my teeth for the mouthpiece that I will wear for six months.  It was kind of funny, you’re in this big room with all of the other patients and you have your mouth wide open and you are afraid you are going to gag on the biscuit dough that is in your mouth!

Have you ever seen the episode of King of Queens where Doug goes to the dentist??  That stuff that they use to get the impressions makes me want to gag!!


Here is some of what I ate yesterday:

After my appointment, I went to my favorite place in the world.  🙂   Just a regular coffee with some skim milk.  Yum!


I also did some yard work yesterday and it took about 3 hours!  Once I was finished, and cooled off, I made a new smoothie.



Blueberry Smoothie:

  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • Lite sugar Raspberry/Lemonade drink 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 cup of Almond milk
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 scoops of Visalus
  • 5 ice cubes



When my alarm went off this morning, I literally thought that I was dreaming.  I wasn’t.  😦  I drank some water to hydrate myself and then made me a cup of coffee.  A little later, I made myself some breakfast.


One egg, egg whites, spinach, turkey sausage, and one Udi’s multi-grain bagel.





Cafe Latte Smoothie:

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1/3 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp of instant coffee
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 5-6 cubes of ice


This one was not my favorite by any means.  Which really surprised me, because I love the taste of coffee.  🙂   This smoothie was also just (and I mean just) over 200 calories and did not fill me up.  A little later I grabbed one of Luna’s peanut butter and chocolate protein bars.  Yum and yum.





I was really in the mood to cook something when I got home and this is what I came up with.  I purchased a Spaghetti Squash the other day and so I cut it up, wrapped it up and put it in the microwave for 10 minutes.  I had some organic sauce and I also made some turkey meat to go with it.   To top it off, I roasted up some asparagus.  This meal was amazing!



I didn’t know what I wanted to do and even walked around the house looking at all of the DVD’s that I had.  Nothing.  I thought about going outside and going for a run.  Nope.  Hmmm???   I eventually settled on one of Bob’s workouts.  Ultimate Cardio workout!  A full hour of sweat dripping from my face workout is what it was!


I hope you have a great night!

  1. Your dinner looks delicious! I love that squash.

    Looks like a great dinner! I notice you quite often have smoothies – is that convenience or preference? Just curious 🙂 You certainly make some wonderful smoothie combinations so I can understand you wanting them regularly!

    Glad you got your internet back too!

    • It was! 🙂 I haven’t cooked like that in a long time. Does it count when you “cook” it in the microwave?? 😉 I do love smoothies! A friend of mine is working with a company called Visalus and they make this amazing protein powder that does so much for you. If you are interested in just reading about it, they have a great website. I will post the link for ya!

  3. I remember when I had to get impressions…it was so freaking strange!

    • It was strange, just when you think that you are going to swallow the stuff, they lift your head and tell you that you are all done. Until they say, “um, we didn’t get a good one and we are going to have to do it again!” lol!
