Finally on the Jay Robb Train

LOST season finale is on tonight! I better hurry up  :)  2 hours of one of my favorite shows? It’s going to be crazy and I’m gonna love every minute.

Lunch today was leftovers of the ham/veggie/mac’n’cheese


Plus some leftover broccoli and a sliced tomato







Work, schmork. Nick and I ate our lunch while watching previews of LOST tonight and a really funny cartoon video of a LOST recap. Then we went to Target to get a new cd holder before heading back to the office.

I had a snack around 3:30 this afternoon to hold me through our workout, which was a weight watcher chocolate smoothie packet mixed with 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup water, 5 frozen cherries (the last of a bag) and 2 cups of spinach. This was definitely was not the prettiest OR green, so it did not get a close up :)


Plus an orange that I didn’t eat with my lunch


BodyPump didn’t happen, but we’re planning on going Friday for the last time. We were going to go today, but Nick forgot his gym bag at home so we just came home and ran since we had another nice day! I was so excited to have 2 nice days in a row – it feels like it’s been way too long. I’m glad we were able to get out and enjoy it since I think it’s supposed to be rainy again tomorrow and this weekend :(

I went 3.9 miles today and my legs felt great – not as tight as yesterday and I made sure to stretch really good before and after. I’m starting to feel more like normal after the weekend of sitting and eating.

I’d been waiting for dinner all day. I haven’t made regular spaghetti in a while, so I was excited to have it.


Spaghetti Bowl


  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 6 oz. cremini mushrooms
  • 1 large (28 oz.) can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 14 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • oregano
  • garlic powder
  • chopped onion
  • italian seasoning
  • crushed red pepper
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Heat pot over medium heat.
  2. Add mushrooms and cook until browned. Add in onions now, if using and let cook until softened.
  3. Add in ground  beef/other protein source of choice and let brown.
  4. Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste and water. Stir together.
  5. Add in all spices to taste and let simmer 10 minutes.

I made a layered pasta bowl for dinner and it was good! 1.5 cups spinach on the bottom, 1/2  cup green beans, 1 cup whole wheat angel hair pasta, 1/2 cup of so of the sauce.


so why the title? Well, my winnings from Sweetie Pie’s 100th post giveaway came today and I found a little packet of love staring me down among the other prizes:


I cannot wait to try all the new stuff! Now, I’m counting on Heather, Sarah, and Sweetie Pie to give me some suggestions on how to use my ONE packet of Jay Robb.

Okay, 8 minutes and counting! I hope you’re watching tonight – it’s going to be awesome.

    You got chocolate protein powder? I would probably put PB in it or mix it up with some raspberries or strawberries. Yum.
