Salad Attacker

Hi guys 😀 Happy Sunday! Hope you’re having a beautiful and relaxing morning.

It’s been a pretty amazing weekend in Orlando <3 To be honest, I almost didn’t come. We just got back from the Bahamas last Wednesday -our house is a vacation tornado- and traveling will suck the life out of ya but it was so worth it 😀 I had to come celebrate with my cousin and seeing the familia always makes me happy.

Something else that makes me very happy:


Seasons 52 😀

We did the to-go thing last night since we were all tired from the graduation festivities. Everyone else ordered Olive Garden, so I had a little minestrone soup:


I just eat around the noodles- it’s one of my favorite soups 🙂 I never thought I’d miss Olive Garden so much- we don’t have one in Valdizzy

And the Mediterranean Shrimp Salad from Seasons 52 with goat cheese instead of feta


I don’t really “eat” salad… I attack it! I devour a glorious salad with such gusto and vigor, it’s probably startling to most people. That thing had no chance 😉

Little beggars:


The pilot and I called it an early night and then bright and early this morning, my little bro did Insanity with me. Pure Cardio! He’s a trouper 🙂 I took him to Whole Paycheck for a smoothie and got a green juice for myself:

green juice

We make a little stop at Einstein’s and brought back some bagels for the fam.

My carby delight:


Good grains bagel + egg white + lox + capers

Why am I so in love with smoked salmon lately? I could eat it all day 🙂

Well I’m off to shower my stinky face, go to my cousin’s graduation party , get on the road to Valdizzy and then write up this week’s Summer Shape Up workout! Yeahhhhh 😀 I’m so excited about this one!

Enjoy your day lovely bloggies <3



Something to do: Meet me back here in the morning for Summer Shape Up 2010 😀

    Spending time with the family is always worth it.

    And, woo-hoo for the summer shape up! I remember loving it last year.

  2. Ilana on May 23, 2010 at 11:31 am

    Ahhh! Can’t wait for Summer Shapeup! Perfect timing!

    Whole Paycheck is right! I don’t think I’ve been in there ever since I started shopping for my own kitchen and I was in shock and awe and ran out without buying anything 🙂

    I love how you stick to your own eats when you’re with the fam, I know how hard it can be, but that bagel looks like its worth any side trip to another restaurant! Can’t wait for summer shape up:)

    Ooo, I can’t wait for Whole Paycheck!!! We do have a Macaroni Grill that just opened on base here in Germany, and it is NOT like the ones in the states. Such a tease!

  6. Julie @ Pickley Pear on May 23, 2010 at 11:49 am

  17. Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind on May 23, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    I, too, ATTACK salads. Sometimes, I really have no idea how I’m able to eat the monstrous salads I do. *It’s a gift.* 😉

    Yay for fam time!

  18. breakingsilence @ Freshman -15 on May 23, 2010 at 2:40 pm

  19. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on May 23, 2010 at 2:42 pm

    Hehe I love your salad enthusiasm!! I attack them as well… especially if they contain any almonds, chicken, or tuna! Can’t wait for your summer shape up workout! 🙂

  20. Kat on May 23, 2010 at 3:24 pm

  21. kristi (sweet cheeks) on May 23, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    I can’t wait for tomorrow morning!!!!!

  22. Claire (College:Raw) on May 23, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    I do the exact same thing with minestrone…whenever I order it I pray that it has potatoes instead of pasta, but that usually fails, haha.

  23. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on May 23, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    I’m so excited about the Summer Shape Up!! I’m traveling now and all next week so I won’t have access to my normal classes so I will try to follow along with the Summer Shape Up while I’m away!

  24. Brynne on May 23, 2010 at 6:51 pm

  28. Katherine on May 23, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    there is nothing like a fresh bagel
    no substitutions for it ever

    my friend knows the developer of seasons 52 idea (52 weeks/year; each menu is seasonal) and she gets the best tables any time she goes. ya I’m not at all envious of her or anything…

  29. Paige (Running around Normal) on May 23, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Excited to see what you have planned for summer shape up!
    That salmon does look good…and I don’t even eat salmon!

  30. That salad looks delish!! And I have a little beggar at my house too!

    So glad that you decided to go and got to spend time with your family!!

    I’m super excited for the sumer shape up! I discovered your blog right in the middle of it last year.

    Glad you had a great weekend!!

  31. Liza on May 23, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    That salad looks beast, and I’m SOOOO excited for the Summer Shape-Up! See you bright & early! 😉

  32. christina on May 24, 2010 at 12:27 am

    I attacked a salad in the same fashion today. haha

  33. Luna on May 24, 2010 at 3:45 am

    ooohhhh minestrone 🙂 it’s such a comfort food for me…I remember coming home at night during winter after my track and field training, and my mom usually made minestrone for dinner…I loved to eat the “ditali” pasta with the fork too 😀
