All You Need Is Love...

First of all let me just give you a big "THANK YOU" to all of your comments, e-mails, and texts...WOW! You guys are amazing and I love love love you! How great is it to have such a wonderful group of girls in this "blogging community". You ALL had me smiling all day!

Yesterday I experimented with a sandwich combo. I started out thinking I just wanted to make a grilled cheese with tomatoes, but then I figured out that I was CRAVING more veggies. And I am a firm believer that you should always listen to your cravings, because its probably what your body needs. So I made up this little concoction of a sammie :)


  • Two slices of Whole Wheat Bread
  • Cucumber Slices
  • Ooey Gooey Melty Yummy Cheeeeese
  • Four Slices of Tomato
  • LOADS of Spinach
  • Spicy Mustard
  • Onions

Lets just say that this combo was GOOD and definitely satisfied my craving for lots of veggies. Here is a close-up for ya as well:


I also had a pear on the side, you can kinda see it in the background there.

After lunch I ran on over to the gym for just a quick workout that included:

  • 35 minutes on the eliptical
  • 20 minutes on the arc trainer

I tried what some of you have suggested and did one of the "interval training" on the arc thing-y. I think I looked ABSOLUTELY RIDIC!! First of all, I had NO idea how to work this thing, so I was just pressing buttons and I could not figure out how to up the workout, so it kept yelling at me SLOW DOWN when my heart rate got over 120. hahaha what?! 120?! What kind of workout is that. But I ended up pressing things and ignoring the warnings and managed to get in a nice and schweaty workout.

When I got home I showered and got ready for the wednesday night ritual of playing pool at this local bar. On wednesday nights ladies can play for free, so Britt and I have been going with some other friends and brushing up on our pool shark skilllzz. I guess you could say we are pretty close to going pro by now. :) Here are some photos from said night.

We usually catch up on our blogs and have a glass of wine to start out the night. Oh the life of internet nerds. haha

Me and the Bestie, Britt.

She was having boy problems as well. This is a facial representation of what guys will do to ya! haha

and here is a facial representation of what a night out with friends that love you will do to ya!

Pool Shark #1

Pool Shark #2

My friends Grant, he is really not as creepy as he looks. haha

By the end of the night we were all smiles, and not worried about any stupid guy problems...cause who needs that?!

Ok gals, im off the dun dun dun TARGET with the mother. Im going to try my hardest not to go completely broke from shopping there. But its really hard...right?! I'll update you later on whether or not I picked up anything "blog worthy". Until then....

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday. Lots of Love <3 Ems.

A sandwich is much better with veggies. I've learnt if I do that it's more healthy and fills me up.

Ohh supercute pics from last night. I'm glad the fun night out helped. Cause really, why wouldn't it. And that sandwich is looking AWESOME.

I confess, I googled how to use an arc trainer since I haven't seen em. It does in fact look ridiculous, but I'm sure you made it work. :)

Hey girl! Im a first time reader..but I think i will definately continue to be reading!! That sandwich looks DELICIOUS!!!!

I didnt make it in time to comment on your last post, but i did read it..and im in the SAME boat. normally, i would be crawling back to ED to keep my mind occupied and to get over that damn boy..but this time, im going against it and becoming a stronger, healthier person. Ive realized that granted, guys DO like girls that are beautiful and skinny...but not a skeleton. Guys like healthy girls that like to eat..and if that boy see's you and you're healthy and happy, he's gunna want you back! And you're going to say "nope, boy, you had your chance! Im better off without you!"

I know its tough, but just keep on smiling and hanging out with good friends! Thats the best way to get through things! Hang in there girl!
