Eating, Wearing, Doing

I’m a little late with this…but as they(who?) say better late than never. I had a lot going on yesterday that I will fill you all in on VERY shortly. Thank you to everyone who wished me a better day after my bad day… I know it could always be worse and nothing was so traumatizing that I can’t laugh about it now – so no more pity party for me :) I felt like myself again yesterday!

My What I ate Wednesday from Jenn’s blog is going to be my What I wore, ate and did Monday!

First up food… Last week I showed you a normal day of eating. Monday’s was NOT so normal. But it’s all about balance :)

Breakfast: Pretty large bowl of Raisin Bran. This is the ONLY cereal that can keep me full for hours. It may also be because I probably had 2 1/2 servings in there!

Lunch: Met up with my boyfriend at his work and went to a Thai Restaurant. We had the worst service ever. I ate all of my soup and half of my main dish. My mouth was on fire! Soup: Sweet Corn w/ Chicken & Main Dish: Hot Garlic w/ sautéed Shrimp and Jasmine Rice

Dinner: Since I was still in NJ, I met up with my boyfriend to run some errands – We were starving afterwards and stopped at Sullivans in Hoboken. I was in the mood for buffalo sauce again. Shocker. My meal was Grilled Chicken w/ melted Mozzarella and Buffalo sauce on italian bread with a side of fries. I ate one half of the sandwich and maybe half of the fries. We wanted to walk to a dessert place so we didn’t want to be too stuffed.

Dessert: My boyfriend and I split the Marshmallow Crunch Sundae from Ralph’s Ice. This place has the best sundaes!! We’ve gotten 2 kinds here before and I’ve never been disappointed. In this particular one: Vanilla soft serve, Hot choc syrup, Marshmallow fluff, Mini chocolate chips and homemade crushed graham crackers. Deliciousness.

What I wore Monday:

It was a tad bit windy on Monday so this dress only lasted for a portion of the day.

Since we are on the topic of fashion, here are 10 fun facts I came across yesterday!

10 interesting fashion facts of the day

1. Clothes that are dry cleaned last longer.
2. False eyelashes were first invented for producer D.W. Griffith who wanted to enhance one of his actresses eyes in a 1916 film. The eyelashes were made out of human hair.
3. It is within the last 200 years that children have had their own distinct clothes. They used to just wear a smaller size of adult clothing.
4. An item of clothing is considered vintage if it dates back from 1920 to 1960. Anything after this date is considered retro.
5. The skirt is the second oldest women’s garment in history.
6. The use of perfume goes as ar back as the Egyptian era, where they would use perfume in religious rituals.
7. Before 1850 clothes were hand stitched by those that wore them. Clothes were not made for fashion, but rather for commodity.
8. In the 1500’s fashion designers showed off their designs by making doll size clothing versions of their own fashions.
9. Egyptian women used to use henna to lighten their hair.
10. In Canada alone, each person creates about 7 kilograms of textile waste that fills our landfills.
I found these very interesting. Fake eyelashes have almost been around for 100 years!?
I don’t have a gym I can attend near my boyfriend’s house and wasn’t in the mood for a run outside so I did a quick 20 minute at home workout. As long as your moving it’s good for you! Here is one of the moves. Try it out at home
This move rolls yoga and strength into one neat package. They’re so effective because every exercise calls on your entire core and requires balance (thanks to the yoga moves), so your whole body–not just the targeted muscle–works through its full range of motion. Tackle the move two nonconsecutive days a week and you’ll notice sleeker definition–and a calmer mindset–within four weeks.
Lateral Bend and Reach*Works core, shoulders, hamstrings, and inner thighs

Grab a pair of 5- to 10-pound dumbbells and stand with your feet about four feet apart. Turn your left foot out 90 degrees. Raise your right arm straight up above your shoulder, palm facing in (A). Brace your abs and bend to the left, lowering the left dumbbell to your left ankle (B). Rise back up, keeping your right arm overhead. Do 12 to 15 reps, then repeat on the other side. Do three sets, resting for up to 30 seconds between sets.

I’m off for a Morning workout…Long day ahead of me! Have a wonderful day :)

QUESTIONS: Do you ever have days you eat out more than once? It’s not my preferred way of eating my meals but it happens! Do you do at home workouts if you cant make it to a gym? I tend to do more in the Summer because I can take it outside.

  1. When I’m home I don’t usually eat out more than once…usually…haha I would love to but hate spending the money! Thai food is YUM!! I haven’t had it in sooo long-that might have to be my next eating out place!
    I will sometimes do little workout at home but I lose my motivation quickly by myself!

  2. I love your yellow dress!

    I usually don’t work out at home because I like separation of my environments, but I will if it’s raining outside and I just can’t even think about driving to the gym. It happens, just not often.

    P.S. I love your lists – they’re always so much fun to read!! Keep ‘em coming! :)

  3. Your outfit is so cute, especially that yellow dress!!! And that ice cream…wow!! That looks so good! I eat out more than once a day sometimes, but I always feel sluggish if I do it.

  4. I always hit up my ipad or my free weights/bender ball for an at-home ab workout. for some reason, I never do it outside, though! and I rarely eat out more than once in a day, but I definitely overindulge when I do.

  5. Ahh I love that move! I squat when I do mine though. It hurts in places no other move gets. Have a good day :)

  6. I am loving your fashion facts! They were really neat. I am a fan of gym and home workouts. It really just depends on my mood.

  7. ohh your sundae looks super tasty! Every once in a while I eat out more than once a day, but that is usually just when traveling. I have been meaning to start trying at home workouts but I never have before! My friend has insanity videos so I have done some of those with her… but we do it in an empty room at my universitys gym!

  8. OMG I want that sundae. It sounds and looks fabulous. I prefer outdoor running, spin, and some weights. All depends on my mood & what the body is telling me to do !

  9. I really try to not eat out more than once a day, but eh it happens now and then.

    When I was in Egypt we went to a scent shop..fascinating stuff!

  10. I want that marshmallow sundae. I can’t even comment anything else because I’m so distracted by it!

  11. You look stunning in that yellow dress, Alyssa! Love it.

    I’m drooling over the marshmallow crunch topping. When I turned five, I requested a jar of marshmallow fluff instead of a birthday cake. My mom stuck a candle in the jar. Haha.

    I definitely have days where I eat out more than once! In fact, it will be happening this weekend. I know I’ll be indulging more than usual, but I can always get back on track next week!

  12. hmmm… i mainly only eat out at japanese restuarants for sushi but there are days when i hit up the campus salad bar more than once. i always try to pack enough food for the day (i’m there 8am-8pm three days a week) but it never ends up being enough!

    i like going to the gym because i always tend to slack off when i stay at home. although, i do prefer to do my ab workouts at home – nothing’s better than doing pilates while watching tv … except maybe just watching tv! :)

    love the yellow dress w/ brown belt – it’s those finishing touches that make an outfit pop! :)

  13. Lately I prefer working out at home, we have been having some gorgeous weather here and I can not stomach going into a gym :) maybe once it gets too hot and humid out. There are days (usually weekends) for me that I end up eating out more than 1x per day… normally I am not happy about it but like you said – it happens! Love the fashion facts!

  14. I love that yellow dress of yours! Yellow sundresses are my favorite. Sometimes I eat out more than once in a day on vacations or if I’m busy all day, but I definitely prefer packing my own lunch and eating out for dinner or just packing healthy snacks.

  15. i LOVE your outfit!! and ur dessert! :)… there are the rare days when I eat out more than once.. definitely happens when im on holiday! its not my preference but i deal!

  16. I dont usually eat out more than once in a day, unless Im on vacation, but I do tend to notice that I eat worse on days I eat out!! After I eat out I then usually want some form of dessert, so I usually go home and either make cookies or ice cream. Not sure why, I just do it!

  17. Wow yellow is definitely your color, you look smoking in that gorgeous dress. I love the wedges too, they are way too cute. Great WIAW eats btw. The sammie and fries look delish and nothing better than ice cream for dessert. After seeing that marshmallow crunch sundae you are making me crave chocolate and ice cream really bad!!

  18. I try not to eat out twice in a day unless I’m on vacation, and then I definitely will.

  19. Crazy about the eyelashes!

    And I’m actually having a Saturday full of eats out. Starting with breakfast and ending with a dinner at a winery… already super excited!

  20. I try not to eat out a ton, but sometimes I just go with the flow and live it up ;) That ice cream looks redonkkkk! YUM!

  21. Love the sunny yellow dress! Rock it girl!!

    The ice cream looks delicious as ever!!!

    When I come back to dc in august we are hanging out!!

  22. I only workout at home, so I guess, yes?

    Lady, I laughed about your buffalo sauce craving – I totally have those moments and especially w/ that, it’s like if you crave it, you CRAVE it. I’m glad that you’re turning the corner and things are starting to get brighter after that atrocious day!

  23. that sundae looks sooooooo goooooood (**** drools on computer ***). I usually don’t eat out more than once but I’ll eat ALOT at that one meal as opposed to two normal sized meals at two different outings….I like your way better ;) haha

  24. eew about the false eyelashes. Kinda gross to think of someone elses eyelashes on your own!
    Love the yellow dress! So cute on you!

  25. love the yellow dress for the spring!! when are you moving to hobo for good?! I have a few friends and co-workers who live there. it’s such an easy PATH ride to the city :D

  26. I love your yellow dress!!! If I can’t make it to the gym I try to do some sort of workout at home. I’ll do my pilates dvd’s or something along those lines! I’m trying to start running so we’ll see how that plays out haha

  27. I LOVE the fashion facts- too funny that kids used to just wear smaller adult clothes- never thought about that one ;)
    I LOVE arden b- super cute clothes & shoes!

  28. I was late on WIAW this week too. No biggie! I LOVE that cute dress from Monday – precious!

  29. I have eaten out more than once in a day but I can’t say I feel good afterwards! I love that yellow dr3ess btw!

    I also prefer working out at home or taking it outside as opposed to the gym!

  30. When I go back home for a visit, we basically eat out all the time because my mom doesn’t really cook. Its sometimes hard to eat out and still be healthy, which is frustrating!

  31. Cute outfit! Also, cute chocolate chips! I sooooo want a sandae now!

  32. id rather you refer to me as Adam than my boyfriend, thanks :)
