also!

after sleeping in till 1 pm today, i woke up and whipped up breakfast lunch of toasted tortillas with chicken, black beans, corn, spinach and cheese. it was really tasty but the tortillas definetly did not stay in-tact so it was kind of really messy.
oh well...you live, you learn. it made for some laughs.

im hitting up the gym later on to work on my arms. gotta get these babies in shape, seeing as im going to wear a one-sleeved wedding dress  :) im glad i finally hopped on the workout boat, i feel like i can really tighten up my body in time for summer (and thailand!). but its not only about working out, its about eating healthier. in smaller portions and more frequently. just wanted to share some of the yummy salads i have been indulging in :

one of my favorites: cucumber, tomato, hard boiled egg, carrot, feta cheese, turkey, roasted sunflower seeds, onion and red wine vinegrette
inspired by this. avacado, tomato, baby greens, turkey and feta with red wine vinegrette
baby greens with spinach, turkey, tomato, onion, rockfort cheese and red wine vinegrette
snacks for a long day of work + school: strawberries, yogurt, an apple with a spoonful of chunky peanut butter, a pear and carrots
also! dekels wedding band arrived and its a beautiful dark titanium band. plus my engagement ring finally arrived and i couldnt be more happy. its perfect!
also! i wanted to share a super cute up-do i succeeded in recreating. inspired by this twisted pony, but i made it a little bun & i got so many compliments on it.
 also! my bestie just got back from a way cool adventure from new york for christmas and canada for new years and she sent me a HOT v-day card & picked me up a little present.
 feather earrings made from reused bicycle tire rubber. how cool?! thank you, dandi!!!

this post is full of awesomeness :) First of all, that dress...in white....it's so YOU and it will look amazing!!! And I kind of want it in black now....except that I have definitely NOT been eating salads OR working out so the only way I'd be wearing that dress is with some liposuction ;)

(p.s. sent you an e-mail with my last name :)

I've been working out for about three solid weeks now, and it is amazing how much of a difference I can tell in my body, how I feel, etc. Plus, I've been eating healthy, drinking carrot juices, etc. Of course, I still have my cheat day, which usually included pizza :) Good luck and keep it up, because you will LOVE the way it makes you feel.

Those salads look soooo yummy! Congrats on getting the wedding bands and the hair looks amazing! I love how it is done but still looks kinda messy in a bun. Great job!
