Back to School!

Well, I officially (re)started my higher learning process yesterday, and it seems like I’m going to be okay. I’m in an extremely accelerated class (one semester condensed into 2 weeks), but the work seems like it will be easy as long as I stay on top of things.

My challenge: Get an A. I know I can do it. It isn’t an “if,” it’s a “when” I get an A, and when that happens, I’ll treat myself to…new clothes? a car? drinks with friends? I don’t know, but I’m treating myself to something!

One does not simply breeze through a class....

One does not simply breeze through a 2 week class….

I’m still going strong on my HASfit program. Week 2 Day 1 was challenging, and I loved it!



I’m doing well on my eating awesome foods and drinking my weight in water, but one of my Facebook friends started a clean eating challenge that I am  more than happy to be a part of. I’m still working on my bread-making ability. I made a new one last night that seems to be moist, but I will let you know the actual verdict when I have it for breakfast tomorrow.

My diet right now, by the way, consists of 5 small meals a day. Why? Because I love to eat and I love to plan. So if I plan to eat several times a day, I’m a happy camper. What’s on the docket for lunch? My world famous pretty tasty Tortzagna! Basically it’s lasagna with whole wheat tortillas instead of noodles. It doesn’t sit as heavy, and I think it’s delectable (PattyCakes says he loves it, but I think that’s because he doesn’t want to hurt my feelings). I make my sauce my own and use skim mozzarella and fat free ricotta or cottage cheese depending on how I feel. It always tastes better the next day because the seasonings have had time to do their thing. Yum! Come on 1300!

Buuuut I’d better get back to work; there are people out there who need me!

Until next time,

Mrs. P


I am a 20 something focused on being a kickass mommy, fiance, cook, and worker-outer. I love everything about cooking (besides desserts, but I'm working on that), and I always try to make everything healthy. I live in Houston with my fiance PattyCakes, my son, The Bug, and my 2 puppies, Sir Reginald and Beaux. I absolutely love my family and would do anything for them. But I won't do that. I love crappy scary movies, disney movies, indie music, Hank III, classic rock, horribly childish jokes, naughty language, reading, Harry Potter, lifting weights, cooking, football, Nebraska, and being outdoors. I am getting married in May to the absolute love of my life. He is my greatest supporter in everything that I do, and my best friend and joke-provider. I lost a shit ton of weight a few years ago (193 down to 142 in 3 months) by eating healthy and doing P90X. I gained 25 pounds of that back, and am now working to get back down to a healthy weight using Weight Watchers and LiveFit. So far so good! So, read, enjoy, learn something, teach me something, and have fun!

  1. I laughed out loud when I read the picture. Good luck with your courses. If you believe you can do it, you will make it happen 🙂
