This time of the month. Oh what fun experiences you bring.
I should be packing. But it stresses me out and I'm tired. So I'll make a list. Of things I love. Things I'm excited to start loving and things I look forward to.

Here we go.

Cherry blossom. I took this picture at my friends house. Thank you Zach :)
I am a dog lover. Especially mini huskies :)
Nights like this. Ya know the ones where you go to dennys till 2 am
then toilet paper houses for the first time, lay in the middle of the street
talk to the cops in said street at 4 am, hop fences and jump into pools
Those kind of nights.
Laughing like this. With people like her. 
  Playing your dream role.
Playing a role made for me...or so I like to think :) Come on she sings
"I feel pretty, oh so pretty" and "There's a place for us...somewhere, somehow, someday."
This boy.
Running. Actually running!
 JILLIAN MICHAELS. She inspired me to start p90x and insanity. AND to start making meal plans and workout plans for people. This pic also is for my love of exercise.

Alright Folks. Probably a billion people have asked me what I eat and how I work out. I reply that I eat healthy and that I'm in the gym a lot... BUT I've been wanting to write down some of my favorite healthy meals, snacks, foods in general, and people have been wanting me to do so also! So here it is... Finally. Its not all by any means, but I have a few min right now so I thought I'd write some down :) Enjoy :)

First of all, I do not ever use butter to cook. Never ever. One its bad for you, two its high calorie and three why use it when "I can't believe its not butter" Spray is amazing? BUY IT. Its in a spray bottle and it is 0 Calories!
Salt = don't use it. Or don't use it much. There is already a lot of salt in stuff. There is plenty. Mrs Dash has no salt seasonings which are so amazing!
Truvia = BUY IT. Its all natural, and its a great way to get something sweet without eating real sugar.

EAT SATURATED FATS! Our body needs them
Three or four servings of the following foods will be enough for a day
-Dark chocolate
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Strawberries!  (Probably the best/lowest calorie snack ever)
A whole carton is around 40-50 calories
Dip them in no calorie sweetener

Top a Graham Cracker with Cool whip and Strawberries!
Total Calories = around 150

Fruit and Milk
Unsweetened Almond Milk is what I use for everything, cereal, fruit you name it.
This works with Fresh or Frozen fruit

1 cup of fruit
1 cup Almond milk
Total Calories = 100

I love fish a lot... it was sad coming to Utah because I personally don't think its a good idea to eat fish in a landlocked state. Especially because I come from Oregon. Land of delicious fresh daily fish. BUT I have given in.

Season all with "I can't believe its not butter" Spray and Mrs Dash NO SALT
1 Talapia fillet
1 Med red potato
1-2 Cup veggies
Total Calories = 230-270 (Depending on the type of veggies you choose and how much)

Ok I have lots more, but right now I don't have time!

Keep looking back for more :)
