Well, today is the big day!   Braces!!   I have to be up there at 9:30 this morning so I am up early to start my day!   I can’t tell you how long I have waited for this day!  Smile 


The past two days I have been going through some boxes of things and well, basically throwing away things that I don’t need.  It really feels good to get rid of some things that I don’t need.  My parents and I are going to have a yard sale this Spring so we are getting ready for that as well.  I can’t wait for the yard sale, but lets be honest……they’re a lot of work! 



Yesterday’s lunch:






Very random, but really good…..  Two egg omelet with spinach, steamed broccoli, and one Minneola (tangelo)



Nutrition Facts on Minneola’s:


  • you get the Minneola’s by combining the Duncan grapefruits and the Dancy Mandarin Oranges
  • only 70 calories
  • High in vitamin C.  100% of your daily recommended value
  • 13 carbs: including 9 sugars, 2 dietary fibers, and 1 protein


And they are super juicy!! 













I wanted to try something a bit different for dinner… I really love throwing things together and putting it in a bowl!  I took 1/2 of a sweet potato and roasted it, made some brown rice and chicken and then I also added some spinach… delicious!


1/2 Sweet potato

2 ounces of chicken

1/2 (maybe a bit less) brown rice







One mile run!  This year I really wanted to concentrate on living healthy all of the time, not just necessarily goals per say.  I mean I want to set goals in my life, but when it comes to healthy living, sometimes I feel restricted.  I also feel really guilty when I don’t reach them.  So, this year it is all about living healthy every day.  With that said, one of the things that I have been working on is having an 8 minute mile.  I have come close, 8:15, but it was on a speed drill.  Which is nothing to cough at, but I want to be able to run one mile at a consistent pace and reach that 8 minute mile.  Last night I ran one mile at 8:15……no speed drill!! 








Oatmeal with almond butter and coffee  (recycled photo….it’s dark outside)  Winking smile 




What are your plans for today??  There is a Fresh Market right next to where I will be at today and I need to stop there and pick up some Apple Cider Vinegar…  but I am thinking that I will want to get home after having my mouth open for a couple of hours.  In fact, they lady I spoke to last week said to go ahead and take some Tylenol before I came. 

I also have to go by the post office to mail my sweetie a package.  (He’s in Washington State) I know, it’s far, but one day I will tell you how we met! Winking smile


That’s it……braces, Fresh Market, post office and then probably a nap. 


Have a great day!!

  1. Good luck with the braces. You won’t be eating solid food for a while from what I have heard from people. 🙂

  2. Good luck, your smile is gonna be beautiful (not that it isn’t already!)

    Good luck love! I hope you took Tylenol before you left because you’ll need it ha, but it gets better quick! Your food from yesterday looks great…Big Kid and I were just looking at them and we both said yum! I love throwing things in a bowl for dinner too…get a little bit of everything that way 🙂 And I like how you want to focus on healthy living every day…that’s my goal too….although an 8 minute mile is an awesome thing to shoot for too! I know you can do it 🙂
