Frozen Library

Transformed the little library into a Frozen library today :-) partly due to the bookfair! Drawing and painting the characters was a lesson in patience for sure!

Teacher Tuesday

Quick update on the library... I started decorating today... Pictures will be posted next Tuesday! I LOVE how my hallway display turned out! Even better than what was in my head! Now I just need to work on the hall of fame area... I left it a mess... I wasn't a fan.

Pirates galore!

Meal Pinning Monday

Linking up with Emily after taking a week off from the blog!

Last Monday, I started a 30 day transformation (no cheats + exercise), so I have a full blown meal plan for the entire month. With that said, I do not have much planned for eating from pinterest this month. I am, however, going to try to find something similar on pinterest that would serve the purpose!


Shake Day :)

B- steel cut oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder
S- Greek Yogurt with Xypstick
L- Chicken Salad (Chopped grilled chicken, a little greek yogurt, a little jalapeno, a little dijion mustard) 
all served in a romaine lettuce cup
S- Lean Shake
D- Grilled Pork Chop and Grilled Zucchini Salad (I will probably make the following with a drizzle of this yummy Ranch Vinaigrette).

B- Shake with banana
L- a version of the below... this is my least favorite meal. it will be hard to eat, but I can also have salsa and a little bit of cheese, so I may use grilled chicken and mix it all up and make it like a taco bowl or something.

D- Grilled Steak and a Salad

B-2 boiled eggs and a piece of wheat toast
L- Grilled Chicken Salad
D- Grilled Steak with Parmesan Asparagus :)

B- Wheat Toast with Almond Butter
L-Chef Salad
D- Pork Chop with Kale Salad

B- Oatmeal with Lean
L- hamburger patty
D- Quinoa, Paleo Tilapia I pinned a few weeks back and never cooked

L- Turkey Sandwich
D- Grilled Chicken Salad

Bring On Week 1! Ready to Kick Butt!!

Weight Loss Wednesday.... Substitutions

One thing miss is good chips! I love Cheetos, sun chips, and I really miss "hot chips and cheese," but none of those are low carb friendly on my xyngular diet, so I had to come up with some substitutions. 

The first one is my Low Carb Chips and Dip. Just baking pepperoni gives you a nice crispy snack with a lot of flavor!

The second is new to me. I've mentioned before that I am super picky!! I am trying to test something new once a week. A few weeks ago, that was zucchini! It really has no flavor and works perfectly as a chip for salsa (and hummus if you like it). 

The third chip substitution comes from the Louisiana Bride Blog. It's her BBQ Kale Chips. I don't know how to put into words how great these little things are!!!

I am always open to other substitutions, so if you have any, please share!!!

Meal Planning Monday.... a little late in the day!

I'm linking up a little late in the day with Emily... I couldn't get the link to work for me today! 

I'm a little late today. I spent the day wedding dress shopping with my friend Katie! After 6 hours, she finally said yes to a dress!!!


I didn't cook the pizza and breadsticks Sunday, so I will cook those tomorrow! 


I will be eating leftovers on Wednesday because I am going home for a few days, and I need to clean out the fridge.

The rest of the week I will be at home and/or my aunt's house... I am thinking about cooking some fun 4th of July things.... I will picture a few of my choices below.
