See ya Later Cocktails & Best Dessert

Hello my loves!! Happy hump day!! How’s your day treating you??? Mine has been pretty good so far!! Mostly because I ate socca for breakfast! 🙂

If you missed my last post…I mentioned that I will be competing in one month!!! WOW!! I already told you that I am trying to lose some weight, and I’ve decided that I am giving up cocktails!!! I have always made sure to drink my healthified cocktails, but I think it’s time to cut drinking out all together. I am not saying I will never drink again, because that would be crazy!!! BUT I’ve decided to quit it for the next month!! It’s important for me to be in my best physical shape!! Look at these dancers bodies!!

I think it’s important to NOT compare your bodies to someone else’s!! But I do find dancers bodies extremely inspirational!! I mean they are rock solid!! There is nothing more sexy than a curvy woman with amazing tone!! They are slim but they have a shape and so many muscles!! Dancing trains your body to use muscles you never knew you had!! Exercise in disguise my friends…

MOVING ON…

Food!! Taking about yesterday’s eats…..

Breakfast

Lunch

This is my bulked up Trader Joe’s salad!! I took a TJ’s pre made southwest salad and bulked it up with extra romaine and chickpeas!! It was a salad monster that made me happy!!

Snack

Usually around 4PM me and my co worker have POPCORN TIME!! No..not T-shirt time!! POPCORN TIME!!!

Dinner

I am not going to pretend this dinner looks appetizing…but I’ll show you anyways!!!

I used these noodles:

Bleh! Not a fan!!!

I made TJ’s seafood blend and ate it with the pasta and spaghetti sauce!! Let me tell you….not that great! I tried out this pasta because it was on sale at Whole Foods, but I was disappointed!! I would have rather had a small serving of real whole wheat pasta, then eating this huge bowl of gross noodles! I ate it anyways, but won’t be making it again anytime soon.

See, there are fails in the Hungry Dancer kitchen!!!

Dessert

My night of eats turned around when I made this amazing dessert!! I am totally one of those people who needs dessert after dinner, always!!

So glorious!!!

  • 1/2 cup plain 0% greek yogurt
  • 1 T cocoa powder
  • Sliced strawberries
  • 2 T dark chocolate covered pomegranate seeds. (!!!!)

Seriously, I die!! This was heaven in a bowl. I am drooling on the counter at work just thinking about it!!!

P.S I forgot to tell you about my most recent CELEBRITY SIGHTINGS!!!

1. Lo Bosworth of the Hills at Trader Joe’s! She was super cute and slim in person!

2. Heidi Klum in my store!!! She was shopping with her kids!! One of her body guards were standing in front of the store, the other inside with her and the kids! She is drop dead gorgeous!! I’m sure you already knew that though!!

What’s the best yogurt bowl you’ve made lately?

Do you drink? If so, do you like to healthify your cocktails?

Best celebrity sighting you’ve ever had?

  1. I would LOVE to have a dancer’s body! I used to dance in High School but that’s about it!

    You can do anything you put your mind to! I don’t really drink. Only when I go to bars\clubs which is not often! I’ll also have wine with my husband but, not often!

    Your yogurt bowl looks awesome! I’ve been meaning to put cocoa powder in my plain greek yogurt! I’m seriously gonna try it tonight and top with strawberries!
    Thanks so much!

  2. Not going to lie…I do probably drink a little too much! If you do healthify your cocktails, I hope you post them all! I could use some tips! And yes! Those strawberries look crazy good!

  3. Hey love!! I think it’s awesome you are doing this, it’s always good to have a challenge! I hope it goes good for you love!!!! So cool you saw Heidi Klum!! She is so beautiful!!

  4. dark choc pom!! YUM!! oh yes cocktails have SOO MANY calories its annoying !i stick to diet coke and vodka.. does the trick and is the lowest in cals!

  5. I don’t really drink, but I usually mix liquor with diet soda. The calories really add up in mixed drinks!

  6. I am in love with Karina Smirnoff and Lacey’s body. They are so beautiful and definitely not stickly thin. 100 calorie popcorn is the best! I love making them for a quick little snack. And dark chocolate pom? I’ve never seen these! 😀

  7. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a celeb in person! haha

  8. I totally admire those dancers because I know it took a LOT of hard work, persistance, and skill to get their bodies to where they are now. Even more than the bodies, I admire their discipline and work ethic! 🙂

    Those strawberries look so good! Simple fruit can be so delicious.
