Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way: Day 22

Happy Friday! Here is a recap of my eats yesterday. I came home late and went straight to bed. Since my family is in town and it seems to be birthday season, I have a lot of social events and dinners coming up. Instead of throwing in the towel, I am trying to eat as clean as possible during the day and to get workouts in no...

Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way: Day 21

Guys it’s almost been a month since I started this blogging experiment! I am sorry that this post is low on pictures, I wasn’t able to get pics of my two first meals. So I will tell you what I noticed so far in terms of my “lazy girl” efforts: What’s working: -Exercising more often and adding short cardio sessions to my routine -Walking everywhere. -Lifting...

Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way : Day 20

I forgot to have coffee this morning and only realized after a few hours of feeling unusually sluggish. Who am I?! How did I forget to have coffee when it’s been part of my routine for years?? It all started with my new, apple cider vinegar morning habit.  I usually stick to water (and wine) for my beverage of choice but I decided to try mixing...

Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way : Day 19

Hello. Are you ready to see more pics of restaurant meals? I am very grateful that I am able to dine out so much. It’s a huge part of my lifestyle and that’s how I learned to manage my restaurant habit and my waistline. I keep my breakfasts and snacks healthy most of the time. And sometimes I just eat small snacks throughout the day until...

Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way: Day 16, 17 and 18

Hey guys! I am back. As you might have guessed from my last post, I spent a couple of days recovering from a stomach bug and eating was either inexistent or not too exciting: But I did make a new health discovery: Apple cider vinegar. I had purchased a bottle of the unfiltered, unpasteurized, organic kind a few months ago. When I saw online that...

Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way: Day 15

Guys I am siiiiiiick. That’s why I disappeared last night, I apologize. I must have caught a stomach bug. Last evening I started feeling really sick and nauseous.  I’ll spare you the details but after a few hours I managed to have Gatorade (it’s so important to stay hdyrated and replenish lost electrolytes). I am now having applesauce, which is my first meal since last afternoon. Here is...

Good evening, So I had white wine and a cupcake for dinner today. Let me explain! I was invited to the Sid Lee Land meet and greet event, hosted by the renowned marketing agency Sid Lee.  Sid Lee Land is the summer internship program of the company.

Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way : Day 13

Good evening! I started the day with the adult version of Eggos: Two Nature’s Path whole-grain, hemp waffles. I had a fried egg on the side (fried in a bit of olive oil margarine) and I topped the waffles with a bit more margarine and a drizzle of maple syrup. I alternate between butter and olive oil margarine for no other reason than laziness. I think...

Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way : Days 11 and 12

Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. Mine consisted of catching up on work for my online creative writing class and spending much-needed time with my boyfriend. I am writing a mystery novel. I am still working on my outline, which is a long process because it involves crafting a mystery with clues and false leads and an investigation. I found this incredible...

Getting ready for a beach getaway the lazy way: Day 10

Hi ! Here is a quick recap of what I ate today.   I made plain oatmeal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, raspberries and a banana. I added half a scoop of vegan protein powder in it (make sure you use extra liquid) after cooking for extra staying power. I have done that in the past with other brands of protein and it was really...
