A Comfortable Life

Standard

Happy Easter Everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying spending time with your friends and family on this beautiful day. Sam and I are getting ready to go visit his family before he has to work. That’s the life of a bartender…always working.

Yesterday, I spent the day with my sister, Megan. We came across a…..get ready for it…healthy chocolate chip cookie thanks to Shape Magazine.

Before

After we finished making our very healthy chocolate chip cookies…only 108 calories, 5 grams of fat and 1 gram of fiber for 2 cookies, we ran a couple of errands and then I treated us to Asian food. Meg has been helping with a project so it’s the least I could do. After we finished eating we were brought our fortune cookies. This is what mine said. Not the best picture in the world but I was rather pleased with my fortune!

Well y’all its time to spend a little OT with the family. I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter Sunday!

Just Another Manic Monday!

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Yesterday started out on the wrong foot…Oops!!

Sam and I were invited over to a friend’s house yesterday to watch the Daytona 5o0 and someone I know and love volunteered me to make dessert! Let me just tell you I am not the best cook/baker in the world but I do what I can! Sam was a little disappointed the cookies were not homemade, but I was pressed for time. We had a great lunch which consisted of chili and cornbread but unfortunately for some the race was rained out. Anyone out there into NASCAR?! I had no clue about anything racing until I met Sam almost 7 years ago. I will watch some races but I usually end up taking a little nap during the race.

Fast forward to Monday morning…I didn’t sleep very well last night so I was a little more disoriented than usual when I woke up this morning which caused me to trip over the ironing board on my way to the bathroom…smooth move, I know! When I got to work this morning I had a Dannon Greek Yogurt . Source

Yummy!! I think I need to check with my trainer to see if the amount of sugar is too hight?! If so, I will just have to switch to a different type.

 What is your favorite type of Greek Yogurt?
