Hi there. I'm sort of back. I have lots of pictures but not much substance behind them. For the last 5 days I was out on LI for not the happiest of reasons. My uncle passed away after an illness. Needless to say it hasn't been exactly fun. It's always so hard to lose someone too soon.

Anyway...that's where I've been.

So here's a recap of what I've taken mostly by my crappy cell phone camera. I'll do a full report of La Fonda del Sol and my pasta and shrimp in pink sauce that I made before I came out here (seriously delicious) later in the week. Until then - here you go.

Thursday: Breakfast: bagel and light onion and chive cream cheese, Lunch: Turkey and Swiss on Whole Wheat, Dinner: Paninis (mozzarella and tomato, turkey swiss and honey mustard, chicken and roasted red peppers, salad

Friday: Breakfast: unpictured - 1/2 bagel with butter, lunch, onion roll + butter, Penne a la Vodka with chicken, (also unpictured - wine, half a slice of chocolate cake and strawberries)

Saturday: I was Snackie Magee ALL DAY but I ran 2 miles w/my sister. Stuff today is mostly unpictured - Breakfast: 1/2 bagel with butter, Lunch: leftover Penne a la Vodka, the end of a bag of Jalepeno potato chips, a handful of pumpernickel pretzels and hummus, a couple of tortilla chips, Dinner: Pasta w/Turkey Meatballs, one piece of garlic bread, Dessert: 2 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Sunday: Ran 1.8 miles, Breakfast: (unpictured - 1/2 bagel w/PB). Lunch - tuna on a whole wheat light EM Dinner: tba (but trust me - homemade and delicious)

So there you have it. That's what I've eaten since you've "seen" me last. Hopefully happier (and healthier) days are ahead.

Catch you later.


  1. I'm sorry to hear your uncle passed. Take care of yourself! Way to keep tracking your food + exercise. :)

  2. Thanks Shan. It wasn't exactly unexpected but still a tough week. It's times like these though that I truly realize how much my habits have changed so there's that.

  3. I've been reading your blog for about 2 months now and wanted to offer my deepest sympathy for the loss of your Uncle. Take care and know that your readers are thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.

  4. So sorry to hear about your uncle and my sympathies go out to you and your family. Keep up the positive attitude and we are thinking about you!

  5. Thank you so much Anon and Jocie. I weigh in on Wednesday and I'm freaking out a little but I'll be a little easier on myself all things considered. I am just so close to being in the next 'decade' I can't wait to get there!! Still there are things in life that are far more important.

    Thank you again for the good thoughts. I (and my family too) really do appreciate it.
