Bess Be Fit

A former collegiate athlete's journey of trying to stay and get as fit as possible in life after soccer!


Playing catch-up

We will sort of be playing catch up on the ole bloggie this morning since I was rather lazy with my posting this weekend (aka just re-posting from Mike’s blog)

So let’s see….Saturday I got a package from an awesome Canadian reader chicka who played food package swapsies with me…I immediately dug into the dried strawberries and dark chocolate…

The dried strawberries were pretty much gummy candy…and I loved them!

Saturday night I went over to my friend Molly’s apartment…had a couple of glasses of wine…and then this happened:


Sunday morning I decided to start out on a more healthy note to balance out the entire box of brownie mix from the night before…

Oatmeal with egg whites and cinnamon.

I was super busy all day yesterday which is partly why I didn’t blog.  I was out and about getting things done!  I did, however, have the best dinner I’ve had in a long time!

Look at all those vegetables!  Squash, spinach, asparagus…with some brown rice and the most delicious chicken breast of all time!  I also spent lots of time yesterday evening watching the Real Housewives of Orange County reruns until the premiere of the new season came on last night.  As you know from previous posts the OC ladies are my favorites to watch so I was mindlessly entertained for a while.

The alarm clock came much to quickly this morning but I got up and tried to be excited for Monday morning!! I have to play mind games with myself sometimes 😉  I even curled my hair for work (which I never do, mostly because I’m too lazy but also because my hair barely will hold a curl for 2 minutes)

Mike’s mom gave me a fancy shmancy italian curling iron for my birthday so I used that…so far so good and the curls are actually holding without even using hair spray!  So we will see how it holds throughout the day…I’ll be pumped if the curls stay!

Here’s what I wore (one of the most comfy outfits ever)

Tank: Forever 21

Jacket: F21

Leggings: VS

Shoes:  Roxy (from DSW)

Needless to say I’m mighty comfy at my desk right now 🙂

For breakfast this morning I made a chocolate protein pancake by using chocolate protein powder instead of the usual vanilla (I’m out, wahh!) and I added some unsweetened cocoa powder for a more chocolatey taste.  I also had to put it in a tupperware to take it to work to eat

doesn't fit...

now it does!

I took some greek yogurt as well to dip the pancake in but the rest is going to be for a snack

It’s Fage brand and I have to say I’m not crazy about it…it’s too bitter for me I think.  I much more prefer Chobani and their creamy deliciousness!

Also, I packed another snack in case I’m not in the mood to force feed myself Fage…one that I am rather excited about!  It may end up being more of a lunch instead of a snack but I might not be able to contain my excitement about eating it.

Steak, egg white, spinach, and light mayo wrap

Maverick wanted it, too! He loves steak 🙂

So that’s about it so far!  I hope everyone has a great Monday!!

Do you curl or straighten your hair?  Is your hair naturally curly or straight? Mine is definitely straight and STRAIGHT up hates being curled…totally never cooperates but hopefully today that will change!

Do you have a favorite brand of greek yogurt?? I think mine is Chobani, but I like Oikos, too…it’s just a little more expensive with its organic-ness.



Leftovers for lunchie

My dinner was so deeeeeelicious last night I decided to have it again for lunch and added in a little extra broccoli and grilled chicken.

and a little later I had a snack that you are going TO HATE ME FOR.  Seriously these are the kinds of pictures I get angry at seeing because they make me so hungry.  So….sorry in advance.

That picture isn’t so bad…some pb and slightly melted dark chocolate chips…

It gets better…

Oops…sorry 😉

For dinner after work I had a roast beef and spinach wrap with a sweet potato

And then immediately after I had a nice bowl of no sugar added fudge tracks ice cream.  I love those little mini peanut butter cups in there…so good.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate is one of the best combinations of foods ever.  Except for some reason whenever I eat a lot of chocolate I always want a sugary candy like skittles or starburst.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? I love mint chocolate chip, oreo, take the cake, etc, I could go on and on.

What is your favorite combo of foods? I also love greek yogurt with honey.  Honey is good.
