Food Obsessions

 Monday morning when I woke up my foot was still in quite a bit of pain. Fail. I called my orthopedic specialist and made an appointment for that afternoon. To put things bluntly, the good doctor had no idea why my foot is in so much pain. The x-rays looks good and there isn't any intensely centralized pain, bruising, etc.
I have an MRI scheduled for tomorrow night that can hopefully provide some more insight.
Despite having to put my marathon training on hold, I've still been getting some good workouts in.
Sunday: P90X Ab Ripper and 60 minutes of yoga
Monday: Not a thing:-)
Tuesday: 20 minutes of ankle weights,48 pull-ups, plank, wall sit and a 45 minute yoga workout
Tomorrow I plan to take a Pilates class and run a few miles....As crazy as that sounds I think I want to slightly irritate my foot before my MRI so everything shows up nice and clear.
Since I can't talk too much about running, I'll move right along to one of my other favorite things, food.
In case you didn't know, I have a very obsessive personality. When I really love something, I eat it every day (sometimes more than once) for weeks and weeks. My current obsessions are:
 1. Oatmeal
2. Eggs
3.  Apples with nut butter (I seriously think I've eaten about 6 apples with sunflower or almond butter since Saturday)
4. Quinoa
5. Avocado
6. Wheat Thins
My dinners this week:
Quinoa, roasted broccoli, fresh red and yellow peppers, kielbasa, garlic hummus and my Cholula.

Kaitlyn asked me if we could make chocolate covered strawberries for dinner. Strawberries are another thing that we (mostly Kaitlyn) eat a TON of. I think I've spent $20 on strawberries in the past week.
I know they look like crap but that is Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate and it's amazing.

Quinoa, scrambled eggs, fresh tomatoes, avocado and my Cholula.

This was tonight's dinner. Super good and easy again. Scrambled eggs with sauteed onions and red pepper, avocado and my Cholula.....along with a couple handfuls of Spicy Buffalo Wheat Thins! How excited was I to find these! Love anything SPICY and seriously love Wheat Thins. I give them 3 days.
I plan to have the same exact thing for breakfast. Well, take out the Wheat Thins and put a whole wheat english muffin there, or apple w/nut butter (haha)...not that I'm above Wheat Thins for breakfast, because I'm not, I just wouldn't document it.


  1. I'm seriously in love with apples with nut butter as well. I try to only eat half an apple at a time with a tbsp or two of natural peanut butter. YUM! I could eat oatmeal with peanut butter for breakfast every morning for breakfast. Or mangoes with strawberries.

    1. Why only half the apple?? The apple isn't bad for you! lol.

      I love Sun Butter in my oatmeal.

      My daughter and I will kill a mango in one sitting:-)

    2. I think I only eat half so that way I trick myself into thinking I have more..aka I can have the snack more often because I'm having 6 halves instead of three apples. Not sure. But mangoes, I will eat an ENTIRE mango in one sitting. I LOVE LOVE LOVE mangoes. I lived in Costa Rica with a host family and every morning my host mom gave me a mango with my breakfast. That's where I fell in love, and I've never looked back :)

    3. A whole mango with breakfast every day?? I don't think that I'd leave!! haha. It's hard to find good mangos though (especially in the summer). I think the ripeness has to be perfect!

  2. I love Cholula! So much! I pour it on s much as I can. My boyfriend fears all things spicy and I just don't get it.

    1. I don't think a man who doesn't like spicy food can be trusted.....haha. jk. Cholula is amazing! I had a gallon jug of it that just ran out:-(

  3. Please update us on your MRI once you get them! I hope that it is something that can be cured/fixed soon :)

    My daughter loves strawberries too... so thanks for the reminder to dip them in chocolate. She is going to love it.

    1. My daughter likes them with cream cheese too!

      MRI didn't get done. Hopefully I'll post about it tonight.

  4. I can totally relate to the food obsession! I get on something and can't get off of it. Praying your MRI has good results!

    1. haha. Yeah. It takes weeks! I'm also obsessed with Maple Almond Butter on my sweet potatoes:-)


  5. I hope you get some answers to your foot pain.

    So that's Cholula - I didn't make the connection.

    Those strawberries look yum!

    1. you've never had Cholula?? You havn't lived!!
