Puppy Runs, Wedding Dress, and Ice Cream

Evenin’ Bloggies! How was your start to the week? Mine was pretty good, if I do say so myself! My morning started off super early, at 5:15am, since I had to be at class at 8am. I always manage to have time for a yummy, filling breakfast though!!


Cereal it was again this morning!! In the mix:

  • 1 cup Multigrain Cheerios
  • 1/2 cup Quaker Oat Squares
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • Raspberries

And some yummy Spring Blend coffee! Divine!


Mmmm, I love raspberries!! Although, I think blueberries are my ALL TIME fave! How about you, what’s your favorite berry?


I got home from class around 11:15 and was so hungry and ready for lunch! I made a Turkey Sandwich on a Bagel Thin (have y’all tried these?), some veggies and hummus, and cantaloupe. I was so ready to eat that I forgot to take a picture! Woops! I gotta get back in the food blogger mode! Haha.


Lunch really didn’t hold me over well and by 2:30 I was starving again! So, I had some cereal. I seriously can never have enough cereal!!


3/4 cup of Oh’s with 1/2 cup Almond Milk. Yum! Filled me right up!!


After my snack, it was time to go to my first wedding dress fitting! Now, as I’m sure most of you know, I had a wedding dress issue when I first got my wedding dress sent to me! Well, everyone thought it looked great on me today and were hesitant to let it out a tiny bit like I was wanting! Luckily, they agreed to let it out 1 inch just for my comfort :) I know wedding dresses are supposed to fit snuggly, especially if it is a fitted dress like mine, but I am not comfortable in tight things! Guess I just gotta get used to it!! I absolutely LOVE it though and can’t wait to wear it!! It was fun to try it on again and have all the bridal salon people oh and ah over me! Hehe. Plus, I got to see how my shoes looked like with my dress!! Can’t wait to try it on again after they alter it! I am also getting a French Bustle added to it :)


When I got home, I was ready to do some form of exercise. I immediately saw Sadie’s cute little face and knew I wanted to take her running! We did our usual run/walk increments of 2 mins running and 1 minute walking for 2 miles. Our first mile was a 10:38 pace and our second mile was at a 9:36 pace!! Crazy that out mile splits were so fast even with our walking segments!!When we were running, we were booking it! We finished out our workout with another 1 mile of walking. Sadie was so pooped when we go home! I on the other hand finished up with about 8 minutes of ab work.


After getting a shower, it was time to make dinner! On the menu tonight: Erin’s Sloppy Joes!


These are the best Sloppy Joes ever! And the fact that you know all the ingredients that went into it is so much better than eating the Manwich kind out of the can!! We ate ours on Whole Wheat English Muffins! The fiancé gave this recipe 2 thumbs up :)


On the side: Broccoli roasted with garlic salt and pepper and Country Bob’s BBQ Sauce for dipping!


And a fruit salad that contained:

  • Mango
  • Cantaloupe
  • Raspberries
  • Clementine

Such a perfect dinner!!

And for dessert… ICE CREAM!! The problem was, which kind do I choose??


Peanut Butter Cup or Samoas??

How about both? Hehe :) Luckily, I had enough calories left (I’m still counting them everyday) to enjoy some of both!!


I love, love, love ice cream!! After this bowl, I seriously wanted another one!! Good thing I ran out of calories! Ha!!

That’s all for tonight!! I have another busy day tomorrow that is starting out with an early morning run (hopefully!!)!! Good night!!

Do you prefer working out in the morning, afternoon, or evening? I like morning workouts because it’s nice to get them out of the way first thing, but it’s been harder and harder for me to get them done!! I’ve been doing a lot more afternoon and evening workouts/runs and am really enjoying them! Sometimes a little change can really help get you motivated and out of a rut!


  1. I can't do morning workouts, but I have a TON of respect for people who do.

  2. I think my favorite berry is the blueberry too but I also love blackberries.

    We always eat our sloppy joes on EM's too! I love using them for burger buns. So much more flavorful.

    Have a wonderful Tuesday hun!
