A Comfortable Life


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.


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!


Awesome Turkey Meatballs


Howdy Everyone,

It has been a long time since I have written a blog post and to be honest I felt like I didn’t have anything to write about. I wasn’t eating super healthy so I didn’t have great recipes to share but I have been working out with a personal trainer at my local gym, ACT by Deese and I love it. I use to think that I could go to the gym 5 times a week and do pretty much the same routine and get awesome results but once I started working out with my trainer I finally saw the light!

One thing I am working on is keeping a daily exercise log so I can share them with all of you!

Today during work I had a free moment so I decided to look up a recipe for turkey meatballs…and I found one I really love!!

1lb lean ground turkey

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup onions, finely chopped

1/4 cup parsley, chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup dy breadcrumbs


1. Mix all the ingredients and shape into 25-30 meatballs approximately 1″ across.

2. You can either cook the meatballs in a nonstick pan coated lightly with veggie oil (I found this to take way too long so I decided to bake mine).

3. If you choose to bake the meatballs preheat oven to 375 degrees place meatballs on nonstick cookie tray lined with tinfoil and bake for 20 minutes, turning meatballs after 10mins. Source

I used Barilla whole wheat pasta and Ragu pasta sauce and put the meatballs onto. The great thing about the meatballs is that they are 165.7 calories for 6! It definitely made for a light and yummy dinner!

No, I didn't eat all of these! 😉

Well y’all it’s time to do the dishes and get ready to watch the SERIES finale of One Tree Hill. I know, I know, it might be cheesy but I’ve been watching OTH since I was in college so I can’t help but be sad that it is ending after all these years. Enjoy your evening!
