I think that’s why most of my dinners can be assembled and on the table in less than 20 minutes. I like ’em speedy!
Tonight’s dinner was another easy-peasy creation.
I made meatball subs using Quorn meatless meatballs, marinara sauce and shredded cheese.
After topping a hot dog bun with the meatballs, sauce and cheese, I placed the subs in the oven and broiled them until the cheese melted.
On the side I enjoyed roasted broccoli for some added nutrients.
You know what tonight is… The Bachelorette!!! Home town dates – Woohoo!
My friend Merri is about to come over to watch it and show me how to properly use a foam roller. We’re multi-taskers. 😉
Another Round of Q & A
What is your religion? Is it the same as your fiancés?
Both Ryan and I are Lutheran, though I consider myself simply Christian and go to a Christian church.
What time do you usually eat your meals and snacks?
I eat whenever I feel hungry, though I seem to eat around these times every day:
- 8 a.m. breakfast
- 10 a.m. snack
- 12:30 p.m. lunch
- 3:30 p.m. snack
- 6:30 p.m. dinner
- 8:30 p.m. snack (if hungry)
Do you drink alcohol?
Yes, but not regularly.
What are your bust/waist/hip measurements?
Just like the weight question, I am hesitant to answer this because I know that reading my measurements may cause some of you to compare yourself to me. Please know that my measurements are my measurements and are right for me. Your measurements are right for you!
When I was measured for my bridal gown my measurements were 32” bust/24” waist/38” hip.
Do you pay any fees to maintain your blog?
Nope. I upgraded my WordPress account to “Custom CSS” for $14.95/year so that I could customize the header of my blog, but that is the only re-occurring fee I’ve ever paid. I also paid $75 to The Blog Fairy in January to redesign my blog and worked with her to create my banner and a look that I really liked. (The Blog Fairy is awesome and amazingly easy to work with. I highly recommend her if you need someone to help you customize your blog.)
I just had my heart broken by the love of my life. Have you ever had your heart broken? What did you do? Any advice would really help.
*Knock on wood* I have never actually had my heart broken, though I did go through some heartache when my high school boyfriend of 3+ years and I broke up during my freshman year of college. When you’re with someone for such a long time, they become more than just your boyfriend, they become your best friend, too. For me, losing my high school boyfriend’s friendship was the hardest part about losing him.
All I can say is have faith that there is someone out there who will make you smile brighter and laugh harder than you can ever imagine. Sometimes it takes meeting someone new to realize what you may have been missing before. Right now, take time to be sad (and angry, if that’s the case), but also take time to realize why the relationship didn’t work out and what you’re looking for from a future partner.
Lean on your family and friends and those who care about you. I also find that keeping busy can help keep your mind off thinking about something painful. You could look into setting a new goal for yourself, so you can feel happiness as you accomplish something new!
What do your snacks usually look like: morning, noon and night?
I actually tend to eat the same kinds of food for my morning, afternoon and evening snacks, though they change daily. I typically enjoy the following:
- Quesadilla (string cheese microwaved on a whole-wheat tortilla)… This is probably my favorite snack. I eat this one at some point every day!
- Greek yogurt with nuts and fruit
- Yogurt pudding
- Apple with peanut butter
- Homemade trail mix (nuts, whole-grain cereal, peanut butter/butterscotch/chocolate chips)
- Popcorn sprinkled with protein powder
- Sandwich thin with peanut butter
Would you do a giveaway on your blog?
Yep! I’ve done quite a few, but I will not host a giveaway for something I, myself, wouldn’t want to win! 😀
When you sometimes have dessert or go out and have a special treat, do you still eat the same as you usually do and snack? I love how you eat healthy but don’t deprive yourself of the things that you like. I think that’s really awesome and healthy.
I usually do eat the same regardless as to whether or not I eat dessert or go out to eat, though I will often skip my evening snack because I’m simply too full after an indulgent meal or dessert. In the past I found myself trying to skip snacks or lighten up meals before going out to eat, which only led me to overeat because I felt famished once I arrived at the restaurant. Now I try to keep my meals and snacking consistent, whether I go out to eat and enjoy dessert or not.
See ya in the mornin’!
