Hey friends! Thanks for watching the randomness that is my latest VLOG!
- Some of you mentioned I called it a “vee-log” instead of a “vlog” (rhymes with blog). Yeah, that’s how I roll.
- I need more VLOG ideas! What do you want to see more of? Less of? Leave me a comment, and let me know!
Anyways…this morning started with a delectable, filling brekkie. I sauteed a huge handful of spinach in a smidge of EVOO + garlic, then added two eggs and a thawed Sunshine breakfast patty. With two pieces of sprouted Ezekiel bread with a smidge of buttah, this was the perfect way to start the day…
Total: 28 grams of protein, 24 grams of healthy fat and roughly 600 calories. Love it.
Unfortunately, lunch ended up being about 5 hours later, which left me ravenous waiting for my Chipotle bowl of love. Sooo…I started lunch off with five of these. Yes, five Valentine heart York Peppermint Patties. No shame.
I had packed a lunch, but when my coworkers said they were making a Chipotle run, I couldn’t say no. It just wouldn’t be right, even if it was my 2nd Chipotle bowl of the week. I got my usual veggie burrito bol, which contains:
mild salsa (aka tomatoes)
extra, extra guac
That’s 300 calories of chocolate + 600 calories of Chipotle right thurre.
You know me, usually I don’t count calories. But, for some reason, I am doing it on this post. Just go with it.
Call me Suge Knight, because I downed the suge (ahem, candy) today. I LOVE candy. I do. It stretches all the way back to being a kid, where I would attempt to give up candy for Lent every year. I don’t think I ever made it. After lunch, I had six of these Dove caramel chocolates…
That’s another two-hundo in kcals.
Even though I usually don’t count calories, I do think once in awhile it isn’t a bad thing. It is a great way to check-in and make sure your serving sizes are correct, you’re eating the right amount and keeping everything balanced. Clearly, today was obvs not the best day to count for me (hello chocolate!), but whatevs.
After work, I headed off to a stretch-tastic 75-minute Power Yoga class. I needed it so badly, and I am so glad I went. When I arrived home, I ate dinner (which was originally supposed to be my lunch)…
Veggie Spaghetti (400 kcals)
And my new fave Choco Apple Berry Snack (200 calories)…
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup frozen strawbs
1 tbsp. carob chips
1 tbsp. shredded coconut
Seriously. Try this now. It’s delicious.
Total = 2100 calories
Exercise = – 200 calories
Net = 1900 calories
Not too shabby, considering all the sugar I ate today.
Alrighty kiddos, it’s Friday night, and I am laying in bed watching the Olympic opening ceremonies. Usually, this part doesn’t excite me. However, it’s been a long week, my bed is ridiculously comfortable and Nelly Furtado is performing.
Mama + Daddy Everythingtarian are also coming to visit tomorrow! Woowoo!

How do you feel about counting calories? I couldn’t do it everyday because I would go insane, but every once in awhile, I like to check in by counting them up!
