less talk, more rock.

August 30, 2009

and by rock, i actually mean photos of food.

it is 1:41 AM and i just got home, but since i get to sleep in and i haven’t posted today i thought i would throw something up! mainly because if i don’t then i will have a mega marathon post later, i already have enough to post now as it is.  this is going to be all my photos and hardly any witty commentary, i know, you are crying inside.

so without further ado…


last night i went up to brighton~my local ski resort~because there was a party going on.  i took my eats on the road and i am fairly certain it was

meal 5: turkey roll up @ 9ish PM

8-29-09 078

this was a flat out wrap, turkey & annie’s dijon mustard

8-29-09 073

it actually worked out to be a pretty balanced meal. 150 calories, 19g protein, 17g carbs and 3.5g fat…8-29-09 075 8-29-09 074

it was good times in the mountains, i didn’t take a lot of photos.. well we took ONE.


who’s short? janetha’s short.

8-29-09 084

8-29-09 003 

then sleep.


so i woke up today and was really feeling like a pepsi.

8-29-09 004

noooooo. not really guys.  it was an iced americano in a pepsi glass. i don’t do the soda juice.

and then it was straight to the gym!

then i found my old notebook from my first body for life challenge. i thought it would be fun to read, i had written down all my meals and workouts and thoughts…

i rode the bike for 15 minutes while reading the journal. ha, it was good stuff. i write some funny things down.

stats: duration=37:44, max HR=181 (again?!), ave HR=131, calories=223


sooo today WAS going to be free day but marshall had some plans come up and so i figured i could just eat clean instead, no sense in eating crappy if i was not going to go out anywhere.

meal 1: turkey roll uppp (yes, same as yesterday) @ 12:00 PM

8-29-09 007

then i went to sunflower market, GNC and the regular grocery store…

meal 2: muscle milk light @ 3:00 PM

8-29-09 008

we were having a bbq later so i made some of susan’s delicious sunflower hummus~

 8-29-09 009

8-29-09 010

oops forgot to snap a photo of the finished product!

meal 3: oikos, PB2 & choco protein powder @ 6 PM

8-29-09 012

this was heaven in a tub.

thennn it was off to allie & maynard’s for the BBQ!

lots of good snacky appetizers~all from scratch mind you..

  • my veggies & hummus
  • lindsay’s fruit & dip
  • neal’s blueberry salsa
  • jaime’s chips & salsa (no photo)
  • allie’s jalepeno artichoke dip & pita chips (ok, that one was from coscto)

 8-29-09 015  8-29-09 017

8-29-09 018

8-29-09 016

remember when neal cooked for us here and here? well he was at it again. on the menu? fresh alaskan halibut crusted in cilantro macadamia pesto topped with blueberry salsa, served with tri-color pepper rice


maynard recently got back from fishing in alaska so this fish was fresher than the prince of bel air.

i got a play by play.

8-29-09 020

neal coated the fish in the pesto & olive oil + garlic aioli but his hands were very messy while doing so.

8-29-09 025

maynard helped him out with a drink. (goofy friends, i love them)

8-29-09 023

8-29-09 032

8-29-09 034

8-29-09 038


the rice~

8-29-09 037

8-29-09 039

the pesto had cilantro, macadamia nuts, olive oil, red wine vinegar, lime juice, love… and prob some other stuff.

my plate~

before i topped it with the blueberry salsa~

8-29-09 044

and after..

 8-29-09 045

it was good. marshall hates fish and he went back for seconds!

8-29-09 052

photo time!

 8-29-09 024 8-29-09 027

see the girl on the right? yeah. we made fun of bayley all. night. long. why? because she is wearing a romper.  i am sorry, i know they are somewhat “in style” these days, but those should be reserved for infants and toddlers… not 25 year old school teachers. but i love her just the same.

8-29-09 028

the gracious chef neal himself!8-29-09 048 8-29-09 049  8-29-09 064 we played darts…8-29-09 071

i got a bullseye!!8-29-09 072 

oh and i had whipped up white chocolate raspberry cheesecakes for dessert…

8-29-09 054

glorious, no? i didn’t eat one. but everyone else enjoyed them! i was on plan, remember? i am glad i kept my eats in check and got my workout in today, that means tomorrow is total relaxation station.

well no time for talk, it is now 2:27 and i am going to hit the hay. just wanted to throw these amazing eats up here before the post backlog got too long ;)

free day tomorrow! i will catch up with you all then, i didn’t have much computer face time today.


1. do you like seafood? what is your fave? i looove all seafood.. but crab and hamachi are up high on the list.

    Ooer, first comment! I’m the only one who’s up so freakin’ early on a Sunday :P Gotta occupy the early morning hours at work somehow, right?

    Aaanyways… that halibut is blowing my mind. Fresh off the boat in Alaska? That’s about as delicious as you’re going to get! Also, I didn’t know the stats on Flatouts were so amazing! All the wrap/tortilla breads around here are 200+ calories and chock full of carbs, hence my pita obsession.

    1. LOVE seafood. My fave is probably salmon and mussels. But I will pretty much eat anything that comes from the water.

    2. Plain cheesecake, followed closely by carrot cake with a cream cheese icing. Oh! And my mom’s strawberry shortcake :)

    Have a great Sunday JB!!

    Woww that looks like the best BBQ food ever!!

    1. I like some seafood, salmon, lobster, most other fishes, but I really don’t like shrimp, clams, they creep me out.
    2. Hmmm favorite dessert. I don’t think I can pick one. Cheesecake is good but I like regular cake too… brownies? I don’t know, I can’t decide!!

  3. August 30, 2009 6:41 am

    Mmm, what a gourmet BBQ!

    I LOVE seafood, I grew up in a beach 5 minutes from the Ocean so I love all fresh seafood- but shrimp, salmon and fresh flounder top my list (and anything rolled in rice and nori, of course!)

    Favorite dessert is HARD! Ice cream is my alltime fave, but I also love cheesecake and carrot cake. Yum!


  4. August 30, 2009 7:21 am

    The blueberry salsa looks so pretty; I’ll have to experiment… ;)

    Way to stay on plan with all the delicious food!

    I love seafood. When I make it myself, I usually make salmon, halibut, or shrimp.

    Favorite dessert? I used to not like sweet things, so I never used to eat dessert. Unfortunately, that changed at one point… Right now, I like to eat a little dark chocolate with almond butter after dinner.

    Arggh… Google reader is handy but you do get a heart attack when it starts coming up with numbers above 20…
    I’m so sad I missed national banana day! :(… but loved the post (especially the quote about the swimming coach; creepy but funny) and I love your new car! Very nice…
    When I saw the pic of you making waffles, I thought you poured something all over your keyboard first, then I realized it was a waffle iron (hehe… they look alike..)
    And I’m working on an exercise plan as we speak, based on and inspired by you and your advice!
    Muchos gracias chica xxx

    Such a fun time!! :-D

    1.) I used to LOVE seafood – lobster tails and shrimp cocktails were always my favorite.

    2.) Chocolate.

  7. August 30, 2009 7:55 am

    What a fun-lookin’ get together–good for you for sticking to the plan. Now you have today to enjoy.

    Seafood makes my heart thump! I can’t get enough of it. Top 3 are shrimp, calamari, and scallops. Crab is up there too but I only enjoy it when it’s Alaskan [gargantuan] king crab legs…otherwise the cracking and peeling gets to be too much. I used to be allergic to most seafood so I grew up missing out and disliking it but now I can and DO eat/order it whenever I can!

    Dessert? I think we all know it’s carrot cake :)

  8. August 30, 2009 8:31 am

    That fish looks incredible! So you your cheesecakes!

    I love seafood. Salmon and shrimp are my favorites!

    My favorite dessert is ice cream.

  9. August 30, 2009 8:32 am

    Yeayurrr for HIIT!!

    Wow that grill-out sounds amazing, delicious indeed :)

    1. I love Mahi Mahi and salmon, but it’s sooo hard to choose, I love all seafood basically ;)

    2. Anything sweet will do .

    Great job on that 10 mph!! Thats insane!

    Favorite seafood is salmon for sure. And dessert.. hmm anything with pb or chocolate!

  11. August 30, 2009 8:40 am

    Hello Greek yog, rice, and cheesecake! Come to, mama :) They look delicious! Glad you had a great time!

    I’ve never been a seafood girl but when I was forced to go to Red Lobster as a youngin’, I’d dominate that popcorn shrimp!

    First of all Neal is awesome and I’m pretty sure you should come to NY and bring your cheesecake cups and Neal’s fish or whatever he cooks. Second of all what a fun night! And I love love love that all your friends eat so healthy! If only mine did too..haha.

    I love fish! If only Deej or me made it more often! I do love me some good old shrimpies too!

    Fav dessert? Hmmm I loveeeeee pie! I don’t reeallly eat it anymore but at the holidays I like making ‘healthier’ versions and what not.

    I’m actually surprised I was able to remember both questions without having to scroll back up. Anddd this was a super long comment haha but I just had so much to say about your life…

    Uh creep? Ha ha

    Um, hello cutie cook friend? Shoooo. To be honest, I got a little gaggy looking at the halibut. I convinced myself to like some seafood, like salmon and tilapia, but never really liked it. Just kinda choked it down. Why I would do that? No idea. I did, however, love shrimp and crab. No mo, tho!

    Janetha, can you really ask what our favorite dessert is? Have you any idea how impossible that is to answer! Haha, ummmm, I’m going with chocolatechipcookiebrownieicecream. As long as there’s chocolate, I’m good.

    I hope you have a phenomenal Sunday! Pumped for the free day eats!

    ahhhhh i know i can be friends with your friends after seeing that. plus, that neal surely is a chef baller, and totally cute. hmmm, is he single? just wonderin?….

    woowoo for you for eatin’ clean and relaxing tomorrow – what kind of choc protein powder do you buy? i am thinking of investing in some, but i want one that is goooood and chocolatey!!!

    hold on…i have to go to the bathroom. so i don’t know why i wrote that, but i did.

    i’m not a huge seafood person, but i am growing up and learning to appreciate. crab is good, as is walleye. mmmm LOVE walleye.

    fave dessert? ice cream. always.

    happy sunday love :)

    Wow, that fresh fish looks great! What a gourmet meal!

    Sounds like you had a really fun night, and the cheesecakes looked bomb!

  16. August 30, 2009 9:46 am

    haha uhh I actually think her romper is really cute.

    My favorite dessert would have to be anything that’s really custard-y. mmm like Boston Cream Pie!

  17. August 30, 2009 10:01 am

    haha how cute are you wedged between all of those blonde skyscrapers! you girls are stunnahs.

    my mom used to always make those mini cheeseckes — they’re so clutch and def. saved your girl from devouring the entire cake myself.. cheesecake is my weakness.

    1. fav seafood — lobster.. i know, i’m so classy
    2. carrot cake! it’s an obsession.

  18. August 30, 2009 10:04 am

    Looks like you’re doing great with the clean eating, and having fun times too :D That fish looks delicious!

    1) Yep! I love salmon and tuna steaks

    2) cheesecake for sure!

  19. August 30, 2009 10:05 am

    Flat outs in the US have diff nutritional stats, interesting!! I don’t eat seafood – always disliked it – but I love any chocolate dessert!

    I only eat fish. I don’t like seafood because…well, I find it icky. I don’t like their anatomy :D
    and my favorite dessert? any :) Specially if it’s with chocolate. I don’t care for fruit in desserts that much.

    I’m always the short one in the group, too! Allllll of that food looks SO good!! I love fish – it’s basically the only kind of meat I eat right now and I don’t make it at home much but I order it quite a bit when we go out to eat. I love cod and halibut, but I think crab is delicious. Not a lobster fan actually – I think it’s highly overrated!

    Dessert…mmm…anything with PB and/or coconut?

  22. August 30, 2009 12:22 pm

    OMG that fish looks amazing!

    1. Chilean Sea Bass- like eating a stick of butter (in a good way!)

    2. Dessert: if calories are no object: something chocolatey or vanilla-y with peanut butter swirls throughout.

    2b. Dessert: if calories need to be roped in :
    THRIFTY ICE CREAM (from Rite Aid only)…Chocolate Malted Crunch. And 150 cals for a scoop. Life altering.

    1. Mmm I don’t eat seafood.. but I never liked it – well except for fish sticks and I don’t know if that counts lol

    2. Hm… tiramisu I think. But I’m really picky when it comes to it.

    p.s. that blueberry salsa looks awesome!

  24. August 30, 2009 1:11 pm

    Looks like so much fun! If Neal is ever in my area, he is more than welcome to come cook for me :P Hehe. All the cool kids ate greek yogurt + PB2 this weekend. LOVE it.

    1. do you like seafood? what is your fave? Oy. I love seafood. I think I would have to say that smoked haddock is my favourite?

    2. favorite dessert? BANOFFEE PIE!!!!!!!!!

    Enjoy your free day :D

    August 30, 2009 1:30 pm

    Whoa, I can answer your questions today – almost any seafood, but salmon has to be way up on the top of the list. Taramisu, mmmmmmm, well and pretty much anything chocolate.

    Love that you are so determined and are staying on the plan, you are a rock star!!

    Your favorite dessert – is yourself?? I need an answer!!

    That halibut looks wonderful, I would like to come when Neal cooks again!! xoxo

  26. August 30, 2009 2:30 pm

    I’m short! I’m short!

    I don’t eat seafood but I did use to love me some shrimp cocktail! I use to eat Swedish Fish a lot too. You know, the candy kind.

    My favorite dessert? Oh man. Anything with frosting. You eat the cake for me mmmmk?

  27. August 30, 2009 2:45 pm

    Wow that fish with the blueberry salsa looks amazing!!! I made something similar awhile ago, it was a almond tilapia with a blueberry/grapefruit salsa and this was very good so I can only imagine how good yours must have tasted.

    What a great night with friends! Glad you are having a wonderful weekend girl!

    PS- I think you are the cutest not the shortest! ;)

    The food looks so good!!

    1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE seafood.. I’ll eat it ALL! My favorites I think are crab and squid (yes, I LOVE squid!)

    2. Favorite dessert… such a tough question!! I love chocolate cake, brownies, basically anything chocolate!

  29. August 30, 2009 3:19 pm

    Janetha – you’re so cute and little! I love it! I’ve wanted to be petite my whole life, but at 5’6”, I don’t quite cut it. Such beautiful pictures of you, as usual…and loving the flatouts! I’m obsessed at the moment.

  30. August 30, 2009 3:42 pm

    1. don’t eat seafood, and was never a fan of it even before I was vegetarian! Maybe it was having pet fish growing up?
    2. My favorite dessert . . .that’s so tough! I have a sweet tooth for sure. Anything with chocolate, and if there’s peanut butter in the mix too then all the better!

  31. August 30, 2009 3:46 pm

    what! your friends romper was so cuuuute!! where did she get it? haha :) is it okay for 22 year olds?

  32. August 30, 2009 6:33 pm

    what a gourmet cookout!

    1. I used to love fish. it was the last thing I “gave up” before effectively going vegan a few years back.

    2. hmm, I think it’s gotta be ice cream. coconut milk, preferably chocolate. so amazing! ice cream, or just straight up dark chocolate.

    hope you’re having a great free day! celebrate with a toasted marshmallow, perhaps? :)

  33. August 30, 2009 10:05 pm

    Haha, you mind if I ask you how tall you are? Jenn (EatingBender) and I were talking awhile back how it’s so hard to tell from blogs how tall people are in real life.

  34. August 31, 2009 4:59 am

    YUM. The turkey roll is so simple but looks so so good. Like something I would have as a kid, but the healthier version ;)
    Favorite seafood: shrimp and salmon!
    Favorite dessert: red velvet cake or bananas foster

  35. August 31, 2009 12:00 pm

    Fresher than the Prince of Bel Air? That is why I think we are sisters from other misters. No doubt.

    Blueberry salsa! Dang chica! That looks delish. I would definitely eat some of that. The halibut sounds amazing too – anything fresh outta the water gets my seal of approval – amazing.

    Fiber worms look good!!

    Rompers= fool’s wear. Or child’s wear. I’m sure your friend is not a fool or a child though.

    Your Mom is such an amazing lady. Still happy after reading her guest post!
    1) Sole.
    2) Chocolate brownies with vanilla ice cream OR carrot cake. I’m torn.

  36. August 31, 2009 1:20 pm

    dude you are always having so much fun! i am jealous lol.
    1. love seafood. love sushi the best. esp eel!
    2. cake with frosting. or cupcakes. really just frosting. LOL.

  37. August 31, 2009 5:48 pm

    That looks like it was a lot of fun!

    1. loooove seafood. i probably love sushi the most even though i don’t get to eat it that often.

    2. my favorite dessert would probably be cheesecake, or fudge brownies. yum.
