dont tell my mom…. she probably wont see this post unless by some random chance she decides to check ye ole blog today…but just in case she does… Mom..Im will NEVER happen again. 🙂 

So most of you know that before getting pregnant I had been working out with my mom for almost a year and had lost a little over 40lbs. It was awesome getting to spend more time with her…but more over it was really great getting myself together and really proving that I could push myself beyond what I ever expected! Well…part of my dieting and workout regimen included lots of fresh fruits and veggies…staying away from lots of breads and sugars…you know, all the stuff that tastes good. 🙂 So, this post could get me in a LOT of trouble… I am getting ready to head into the studio to work on some images and start with my giant January to do list, but I wanted to eat lunch first so…I sliced an orange..broke out some left over celery sticks….and made a box of crappy mac and cheese (you know..the kind with the powder stuff…oh yeah! Thats what Im talking about!!!). I havent had this stuff since before I got married (3 and 1/2 years ago!) and let me tell was TOO GOOD!  Yea its full of preservatives and all kind of chemical craziness, but it was so tasty I just closed my eyes and went with it! I DID, however, restrict myself to ONE serving of this fake cheesy goodness which equaled to 1 cup…you’ll see I measured it out, and the rest went into the trash…its the ONLY way I know I wouldnt eat anymore!!! I ate my serving, washed it down with the orange and celery..and Im definitely planning a walk today so…dont kill me mom…its the kid’s fault. 🙂 


I got ravenous…I dont know what I was thinking!!!!???!!!!



Look at it all steamy and yummy looking in its perfectly portioned cup…mmmmmmmmm



Oops!!!! One casualty though…poor little noodle. The baby belly has become its own force of nature and it tends to catch things I drop. Shesh…


Okay…well…thats all for now. back to work I go. 🙂 Have a good day friends!!!

    So funny. I craved KRAFT mac ‘n cheese during my second pregnancy. I understand the craving! 🙂

    Mac n’ cheese tasted better than STEAK while I was pregnant. I used to devour it. In fact, I’d often order a side of mac n’ cheese with a regular meal when we went out. And I bought boxes and boxes of the Kraft kind too. Enjoy it now, because after you have the baby it goes back to being blah blah boring tasting again.
