Today we are heading to Midland, Tx (Hector’s hometown) for his birthday weekend! I am super excited but every time I go out of town, I get a little worried that my heathy ways will be interrupted. It’s tempting to stop at gas stations along the way for some unhealthy snacks to pass the time. It’s also a little tricky when you are eating at someone else’s house and going out to eat for special occasions. 
Although I’m sure I’ll be eating a little birthday cake, I’m determined to stick to my healthy ways! So to help myself stay on track,  I packed snacks so we won’t have to buy any unhealthy ones on the way there or on the way back.
These are some of my favorites so I thought I would share: 
-Whole wheat/flax seed crackers with Laughing Cow cheese (DUH!)
-Strawberries sprinkled with Truvia
-Whole wheat blueberry/cranberry muffins
-Pop Chips (THESE ARE AMAZING) I packed the baked potato flavor! 
-Cherry tomatoes 
-Carmel flavored Quaker rice cakes
-Bananas
-Yogurt covered pretzels (100 calorie packs)
-Apples
and LOTS of water (:

SNACK IDEA OF THE DAY (: 
Quaker Rice Cakes! Because they are amazing… Somehow they have gotten a bad reputation for being yucky when in fact the opposite is true! They make sweet ones, salty ones, cheesy ones, chocolately ones! And it’s usually like 17 rice cakes for 120 calories which is awesome. They make you feel like you are eating something unhealthy when you aren’t. (which in my opinion is the best kid of snack) 
Yummm… Enjoy!

Looking forward to my first v-beam laser treatment tomorrow... Ready to do whatever it takes to make the last traces of rhabdo disappear!

Good tips on how to get a flat tummy! and be healthy in general (:

I’m sick of seeing people pin and post pictures like this one and say things like “skinniest is prettiest” and “nothing tastes better than skinny feels.”
No… I’m not a doctor. But this doesn’t look healthy. Shouldn’t healthy be the goal? I’m not sure when this became beautiful, but I don’t like it.
I wish healthy was in style.

Snack of the day: LAUGHING COW CHEESE! 
Yummmmmm….
This is prettiest much my favorite snack in the world. My friends make fun of how much I love it. The hardest thing I’ve had to deal with since my lifestyle change is not coating everything I eat in cheese like I used to. Laughing Cow always gives me my cheese fix and the best part is that a wedge is ONLY 35 CALORIES! They are easy to stick in a lunch bag and take on the go. I like to get a few whole wheat/flax crackers and eat it that way (:
Happy cheese eating!
