WIAW #33

(How do people make up creative titles? I struggle so much with it…)

Hi! Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well and that you’re staying warm! (Seriously, does anyone actually like winter?? šŸ˜‰ )

Some fun news: if you didn’t notice, I now own my domain name! Welcome to livliveslife.com! I mainly bought it on a whim, but I’m glad I did…I like how it looks. šŸ™‚

Well, I have a lot of work and reading to get to (that’s what I get for being an English major, history minor!), so on to WIAW!



Hosted by Jenn of Peas and Crayons.

As it turns out, I didn’t take too many pictures of my weekend eats. I’m not sure why, really, but I think it has something to do with not having a camera. It’s my goal this weekend to go and get it checked out! Hopefully it’ll be an easy fix for the shop, and not cost too much money…


Greek yogurt, raisins, and Special K. Yum yum yum.



A salmon burger with ketchup, and some mixed veggies on the side.


A tomato and mozzarella panino from Panera, with a side salad. Yumo.

My final day of a regular diet was wrapped up with homemade sloppy joes. My mom makes the best. I paired it with a giant salad.



Sooooo I made some cookies.


Some realllllly good cookies.

But I’m going to be mean and make you wait for the recipe. Sorry! Check back tomorrow!!



Workouts Feb 3-9
Sunday: Jillian Michael’s 6 Week 6 Pack
Monday: off
Tuesday: 20 minutes jogging + 30 minutes walking on treadmill
Wednesday: 6 Week 6 Pack
Thursday: rest
Friday: 25 minutes jogging + 30 minutes walking on treamdill
Saturday: Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown

So, see those Jillian Michael’s workouts up there? Well, the other day I received an awesome package in the mail that contained three workout DVDs! I had ordered it a few weeks ago off Groupon but didn’t expect it to arrive so soon!

(Check out that price! When I bought it, it was $20 and they were comparing it to $50! Such a great deal.)

I’ve got to be honest: I think 6 Week 6 Pack is one of the most difficult workouts I’ve ever done. And that’s coming from a person who has done P90X! It kicked my butt but in a good way…as in, I’m still sore today. I’m excited to try it again, as well as the others!

In other news, on Saturday, my mom and dad, Dan, and I went out for dance lessons! For our birthdays (mine and my dad’s) my mom got us Groupons to a local dance studio. All of us are very challenged when it comes to dancing, so it really was a good idea on my mom’s part. Our instructor was very nice and broke the dances down so they were so elementary they didn’t even feel like dances! But the Groupon includes two more lessons plus a group class, which I’m looking forward to. We were taught the Box Step, Fox Trot, and one other that I can’t remember. I’m an 80 year old at heart, so I’m really looking forward to learning more swing dances!

My Pescetarian February is going pretty well so far. I really don’t miss meat at all (of course, it’s only six days in…) and I love being creative with my food. I made some amazing veggie burgers over the weekend, which I’ll share soon. I can foresee that I’ll have the hardest time when it comes to getting pizza – I love pepperoni! But anyway, so far so good. šŸ™‚

Finally, Ella got a hair cut the other day and is suuuuuper cute. I could not stop taking pictures of her this weekend.


Just thought you’d want to know. šŸ˜‰

Do you have a favorite workout DVD? Any suggestions?

Are you a good dancer, or are you challenged like me?

Other than the typical base, those cookies have seven fun ingredients in them! Can you guess what they are? šŸ™‚

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!


  1. I’m with Ella here: Want the cookie!!!! šŸ˜€
    Neah, I can’t do dvds. I’m too lazy, or I better go clean something than doing things in front of TV šŸ˜€ I have to get my workouts done in the gym.
    Happy Wednesday, hun!

    1. Haha I do understand that, too! You too! šŸ™‚

  2. I am so hopeless as thinking of titles for a blog post, it what I struggle with most! Well done on the url change, its something I’ve been meaning to do for awhile, hopefully my internet will be fixed by this weekend, and then I’m on it. Love all of your eats!

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only one who has a hard time with it! And thanks, I’m glad I made the change. Hopefully your internet is fixed soon! šŸ™‚

  3. The only DVD of those three I don’t have it’s the 6 pack abs. I really enjoy the shred it with weights! I also like bob harpers DVDs a lot. I’ve had a lot of success with home DVDs šŸ™‚

    1. Good to know! I have Bob Harper’s yoga DVD…I’ll have to check out some others!

    You’re holding out on us with the recipe? COME ONNNNNNNNNN (I feel like a kid complaining to their mom hahahah). They look delicious so I’ll be back for sure to check it out šŸ˜‰
    And that panera sandwich. Good lord I’m drooling. And not in an attractive way.

    1. I know, I’m sorry! My blog usually takes priority over my homework (I shouldn’t admit that) but I just had to get some work done last night. šŸ™‚

      Haha I understand.

  5. Is it bad that I have the Saturday night live sloppy joe song stuck in my head now? oops…

    1. I don’t know that song…I’ll have to check it out. Or maybe not, if it’s a sticker… šŸ˜›

      1. oh my gosh! look it up on youtube, it’s with adam sandler and chris farley and it’s hilarious!

      2. Oh gosh. That is classic.

  6. your dog is adorable. and the fact you put one of my favorite foods sprinkles in cookies makes me bow down to you.

    1. Aw, thanks. Hooray for sprinkles!

  7. Cookies with sprinkles? I’m sold. Looks like a good days worth of eats!

    1. Haha exactly! Everything is better with sprinkles.

  8. Those cookies look good! And your workouts do too. I love a good DVD from time to time.

    1. Thanks! I’ll have the recipe up tomorrow!

  9. Hmmm, I’m thinking sprinkles, nuts, chocolate chips, maybe dried fruit? Wow, you got me there!

    1. Good guesses! You got the sprinkles and chocolate right! šŸ™‚

  10. Glad you’re liking your pescetarian diet change! How was your mom make those sloppy joes to fit that?

    I have no idea how to come up with creative titles. So don’t ask me. Lol.

    Cookies look awesome. Can’t wait to see what all you put in them!

    1. I had those sloppy joes on January 31st – the last day of my regular diet! šŸ˜‰

      Haha I’m glad someone shares my pain. šŸ˜€

      1. Oh, I see! šŸ™‚ They still sound great though!

  11. I was about to comment on the panini from Panera because that’s the one I always get and then I saw your amazing cookies! I’m excited to see the recipe tomorrow- yum!

    1. It’s so good, isn’t it?? Be sure to check back! šŸ™‚

  12. I know I’m not the norm, but I actually prefer winter to summer, hands down.
    Your dog is so ridiculously adorable!!!!
    HUGE fan of workout DVD’s, I’m a beachbody snob and have turbo fire, chalean extreme, power 90, p90x and rev abs.

    1. Really? I think snow is pretty at first, but then after a few days of it, I’m ready for summer!

      Aw, thanks! šŸ™‚

      Wow, lots of good suggestions! I’ve never heard of a few of those…I’ll have to check them out! Thanks for sharing!

  13. the panini looks so appetizing!

    1. They really are!

  14. what do you think of jillian’s yoga video? I had it, but I didn’t think it was her best work. BTW, your dog is scrumptious!

    1. I haven’t tried it yet (but will this weekend). It’s interesting to hear your opinion on it. I think yoga must be a challenging thing to teach/instruct, just because there are so many people who prefer it in different ways. Thanks for the feedback!

  15. What do you think about the yoga meltdown DVD?

    1. I’ll be trying it for the first time this weekend. I’ve heard mixed reviews about it, though. Have you done it before?

  16. Your photos are absolutely stunning! So colourful and beautifully clear! What camera did you use for this week’s pics? Was it the broken one? I need a new camera so I’d love to hear your recommendations.
    Those cookies look incredibly good! I can’t wait to check out the recipe!
    p.s. Ella is so adorable and photogenic!

    1. Thank you! I’ve actually been using my brother’s camera for a few months now. It’s a Canon…a Rebel, I think? I will double check for you and let you know!

      Aw, thanks! I seriously love taking pictures of her. šŸ™‚

  17. Ella looks adorable! Miss you sweetie – we love you !

    1. Miss and love you too! šŸ˜€

  18. I can’t dance… It’s too awkward. Hahaha.

    Those cookies look so good! Chocolate chips, and do I see some hundreds and thousands? I love those!

    1. šŸ™‚ Thanks! Definitely chocolate chips…I’ve never heard of “hundreds and thousands” though. What are they?

  19. Happy WIAW! Ella’s haircut looks cute! šŸ™‚ Your cookies look great.
    I like the Tracy Anderson Cardio dance. I am a terrible dancer but I still have fun. I have no Idea what is in your cookies but I do see chocolate chips. Always a good sign!!!

    1. I haven’t heard of that workout. I’ll have to check it out!

    I have never tried salmon burgers before. Is there a certain brand you buy, or do you make your own?? šŸ™‚

    1. Yep, I buy a brand from Costco. They’re Alaskan Salmon Burgers from a brand called “Trident”. Delicious!
