Shoed Up

This morning when I woke up I didn’t feel like working out. I wasn’t feeling so hot last night so I decided to lounge this morning and will do my workout this afternoon.

Breakfast was literally the same exact thing I had yesterday. It was even in the same bowl. (Clean of course)

Cereal Combo – Kashi heart to heart, Fiber one 80 calorie, blueberries, strawberries, lots of cinnamon, chia seeds and almond milk.

After reading some of my favorite blogs I turned on Regis and Kelly and unpacked the last of my boxes to fill the dresser drawers. It feels good to have all of the boxes out of the house!

Yeah, we both have to share that… Good Luck, Adam 😉

While I was unpacking I realized that I have A LOT of shoes, A LOT of clothes and A LOT of jewelry. I always thought my shoe collection was impressive until I read this article a couple of weeks ago. Suri Cruise’s shoe collection is worth $150,000. Way to get shown up by a 5-year-old, Alyssa.

Suri is a big fan of Marc Jacobs and has most of her shoes custom-made so she can have a heel… She even owns a pair of Louboutin’s. Um, yeah I’m totally jealous over here……

I’m going to finish putting away my pathetic shoe collection and go for a long bike ride.

I have 2 bananas that want to be baked into something yummy later – Any ideas??

QUESTIONS: What do you have a lot of? Clothes, Shoes or Accessories? What should these bananas be baked into!?

Valentine Fashion & Vegan Day 1

Day 1 of being a Vegan was….challenging. I’m not sure if I was over thinking my meals or if that many items really are made with animal products. When I went on the Peta website to check out the approved list, EVERYTHING seemed so unhealthy: 7-11 apple pies, candy galore, famous amos cookies and kettle chips. I was looking for guidance on what type of Salad dressings I could use, not what type of processed foods I could load up on! In the end, I stuck to my goal of eating Vegan for the day (6 more days to go!) but got a little frustrated come dinner time when I was ready to gnaw off my arm after the gym and didn’t want to think of what I  was and wasn’t able to  eat.

Here were my meals…


Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Oatmeal w/ Almond Milk, Better n Peanut Butter, Banana, Vegan Carob Chips

Snack: 100 calorie pack of almonds & clementine

Lunch: Apple and Avocado Spinach Salad

Dinner: Every single vegetable in my house with a half of a pita and pureed black beans

Dessert: Frozen Banana Ice Cream

After work I ran 3.5 miles and tried to come up with some more exciting recipes I could eat during the week so I wasn’t on Veggie overload. Stay tuned to see how I do!

I have been on the hunt for something to wear for Valentines day.. I don’t need or care to be decked out in hearts, pink and red but I do like to have a little something to represent love. Here are some looks I put together. Some of the items are WAY too pricey but it gives you an idea of what to look for…



QUESTIONS: Do you usually dress up for Valentines Day? If you are Vegan, post a link of your favorite Vegan meal… OK, I know this isn’t a question. But I still want to know 🙂

Day 13: Goals

To be honest I’d rather tip toe through the daisies, wandering down my creative path, creating my own recipes, blogging, and not worry about where I’m headed or what I’m accomplishing. Except that it’s quite clear I’m not accomplishing as much as I’d really like to be. And there’s this strange feeling in my gut that has a slight dissatisfaction about it. So, I set goals… Life goals, Relationship goals and Hobbie goals.


  • To be trustworthy.
  • Earn a good living.


  • Respect the feelings and rights that my partner has in the relationship. Don’t become overbearing.
  • Don’t ever let the fun fizzle out of your relationship. Do keep an open mind and try new things.


  • Run a marathon one day.
  • Cook 10 new recipes a month.
