These two lovelies.
Dinner was this quick and easy salad of arugala, tomatoes, mushrooms and beans! And a repeat of last night’s dessert.
I love salad a lot, but I love dessert a lot more. And since today well let’s talk about my hump day:
So tomorrow is another chance to fit into those two bikinis for the cruise happening REAL effing quick like. Catch up on, everything. AND it’s one day closer to the weekend. Don’t let the world swallow you… I leave you with this:

Two Huge wins for humanity this week!
1. The FDA on Wednesday rejected the Corn Refiners Association’s bid to rename high fructose corn syrup to “corn sugar.” And that makes me think of this:
You may not find it to be big deal that this happened, but it is. America has a sad abusive relationship with food that we need to break up with. But to break up, we have to actually acknowledge that it’s unhealthy, and walk away. I could rant for hours about how we got here, and how we change it, but I will spare you that for now. Just be happy the FDA is on our side (on this one).
2. The mayor of New Yorks want to ban the sale of sugary drinks over 16 ounces. AND I think this is awesome. Hubs thinks it’s whack and limiting free will yada yada yada, but shit we have to start somewhere. Unfortunately, the government in some way has to step in and help us out. Maybe it’s regulating some of these big old businesses and what they can sell us.
Educated guess here, but I don’t think you can sell lead-acid in soda fountains because it definitely causes cancer. So why can’t we create legislation based off the fact that the size and quality of our food causes cancer, obesity, heart-disease… the list goes on forever.
Fact is, I think we know shit ain’t right in the American diet and we have to celebrate the small victories to find our way back. So I am celebrating the failure of corn sugar, and NYC at least getting some press on the fact that we have a problem with wanting to consume 16 ounces of crap or more. Celebrating the best way I know how…
While consuming Dance Moms Miami, a healthy veggie bowl for dinner, and a glass of red to wash it down.
And don’t even get me started on Splenda, or the fact that my favorite shows are about drag queens or crazy parents.

Did chubby used to be a flattering term? Or at least not as offensive? I die for this old Lane Bryant AD I found today.
Whatever. At least someone used to call it like they saw it. Kind of funny, anyone ever watch Weeds? Remember Huskeroos? Just own it.
Watch this right now.
Huskeroo huskeroo you’re beautiful in all the things you do!!
Discuss amongst yourselves. This makes me laugh because we take ourselves too seriously, we do not educate ourselves or our children on how to eat properly, and we are addicted to decadence. AND I personally just showered in some chips’n queso from Baja Betty’s, so I am not even trying to judge. I am just sayin’, I wish we cared a bit more about nutrition for ourselves and the youth, and I wish when we had a cookie we just were okay with it. Because we work hard enough as it is.
And don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame society for making me feeling bad in a bikini, I blame myself for just not owning it and/or appreciating the fact that I work hard but I am not perfect. I do hope, wish and work towards a more better, more nutritious world for my children, but that happens one glass of water, one less chip at a time.
In the meantime I do have a delicious veggie burger recipe for all of you who are chubbies at heart, but know and feel eating clean is better for your body and soul.
Stay sane, stay true, be you. x to the ohhh
