~whatcha eatin'??~

Happy Friday!!!!!

I love love love Fridays......
yes, you know this cuz I probably
say it only every time I post
on a Friday....:)


ok....the last time we chatted...I was
going on & on about our fabulous
weather.....sunshine....things budding...
etc...

welp, it's all gone...
yup....the rain is seriously back...


and you would think we could
just   g  r  a  d  u  a  l  l  y   ease into the
massive rain
but nah....
nope...
we gotta just go from 0 -60....
one day happy sunny flowers about to bloom spring ~ the next grey gloomy
depressing nonstop rain....



now I am most definitely not
complaining....cuz I just don't do that
sort of thing....
{yes, I know I am lying here....hahahaha}
you can't NOT complain about the
rain!!!


well yes, I suppose it is humanly possible...
I do have a friend who says...

*insert sarcasm here*
"I love the rain...it doesn't bother me..."
*insert very bad attitude here*
uh huh....sure it doesn't....
ya right~ hehehe :)


so what does the rain have to do with eating???
well.......nothing.

just had to update ya...cuz I know you
are just dying to know what the
weather is like & how I feel about it right??

so what in the world is this post about?

f.o.o.d.

watcha eatin????


Mr. T & T and I have gotten serious...
serious about leaning up....
serious about working out...
all that stuff...


and unless of course you've been living
under a rock
{no offense of course if you are living under a rock or just haven't heard this!! ;)}
.....it's a pretty well known fact
that diet accounts for at least 80% of
your results.....

"you can't exercise away a bad diet.."

so we've been eating a lot of what we call
"green & white"


that would be
green veggies & white meat....:)

but we are not so over the top that we
don't add any condiments & stuff...
but primarily smaller meals, protein & veggies
and moderate complex carbs....
and lifting weights mixed with cardio...
{and in case anyone is curious~ I am still running about 2-3x week!:)}


now granted....we are only really a week into
this "for real this time" situation....
but we've been having fun!

we've been meeting at the gym in the late
afternoons & working out together
 ~ ahhhhh so nice ;)
{boy am I so sarcastic today??!!}


wow~ check out those abs!!!!
well those will "never" be mine
not with the gigantic babies
I was blessed with....but one can dream huh??


so these recipes here are actually healthy...
even the cake!!
yep!! chocolate protein powder & other good
stuff is used in it ~


so if you try them let me know!


I'll be trying at least a couple of these
recipes in the next week or so ~
I'll let you know!



have an awesome weekend!!


xoxo,



Shellagh

Hurray for you! I am happy to hear you are still running and eating so well! That's a lot of inspiration for me! I have to remember...green and white!

Love all you images of the white open shelving I have that at the lake and if I add one more thing to the shelves they will fall down. It's hard not to want to display every white or unique piece you own!

I hope the rain eases up...we finally had some snow today!

XO,
Jane

Well, we Texans are still happy to see the rain. Had a bit more last night. ;-)
Good luck with your green and white diet. Your dishes look delicious!

How nice that you two meet in the afternoon to workout together, i always like having Duane with me when I walk and especially when we bike. With the white stuff on the ground right now, we better find another form of working out because I can feel the effects of winter when i try to zip up my jeans!!!
LOVE the kitchen photos, gorgeous!

You know what? I think if my kitchen looked like the kitchen in your photos....I wouldn't have to eat. I would just want to sit in the middle of it and gaze at it lovingly....Now that's MY kinda diet.

However....if it really starts to bother you that you're sitting in your pretty kitchen eating that gorgeous chocolate cake without me and wondering if I'd want a (BIG) piece....you'd be right. Feel free to stuff one in an envelope and mail it right out to me. :)

Way to go Shellagh! It sounds like you are enjoying the healthy eating. After Dale found out he had type two diabetes we have been eating so much better too. It really makes a difference!

Darn that rain!!!! I hope you see the sun soon : )

sending hugs...

I hope the sun
is shining by
now, Shellagh!
Mom and Dad
are coming home
from a three week
cruise {from Hawaii
to Tahiti, no less}
and it will be a bummer
if it's all grey and
gloom. Are all those
pics of YOUR kitchen?
Seriously loving each
and every one. Some
day I will have a white
kitchen, again : )

SUNNY {but crisp} hugs
from Minnesota!
