4 Days 9 Hours and 20 Minutes

until I leave Kansas :(

What? Did Amy just put a sad face?!?! Yes.

After putting more thought about moving, I realized everything I will miss in Kansas.
  • My friends
  • My mom
  • My sisters
  • The stars
  • The sunsets
  • The sunrise
  • Metropolitan Coffee
  • Brooks on Main St.
  • My high school
  • My cross country team
  • The thunder storms
  • The landscape
  • My "house"
and the list goes on....
such a bittersweet moment.

Next time I post my blog, I will either be on the road to Virginia or in Virginia.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

Until next time. Chau.

No consistency whatsoever!

My post are random, which I really don't mind. I just noticed it. That is all :]


Breakfast: Soy chocolate frozen banana smoothie.
(I was in a hurry to work, sorry no picture).

There are so many spiders at work. Don't get me wrong, I am not afraid of all bugs and what not, but these spiders look identical to the poisonous ones. The one in the picture below made a sneaky move and tried to drop on me. Luckily, it missed. I am not paranoid, right?

Lunch: 1/2 Wheat sandwich with cheese, ham, peppers, and pickles. Toasted. Grapes on the side.

Snack: Yogurt Ice Cream cone.

Dinner: Veggie burger and fries from BK.
I know, I know. NOT healthy, but trust me the burger was tasty so I did no finish it.

Dessert: Homemade strawberry ice cream with brownie.

I DID exercise today, so I do not feel guilty for eating my treats. It was an intense workout!
I DO feel the burn. haha.
Let me elaborate....:
I basically ran in circles through my neighborhood, each round was an equivalence of 1.2 miles.
It was 90+ degree weather. I was only able to run 4 intervals before stopping. I walked another one, and then ran a last lap as a cool down. It was about 7 miles. I am getting there!

It got to the point where the drained water looked so good to drink. I know, what was I thinking?
Au Revoir!

I was reading MANY blogs today and it really inspired me to eat healthy/exercise more often.

Thursday Schedule:

Breakfast: Soy Chocolate Banana Vivanno Smoothie. YUM

Work: Walk doggies

Grocery Shopping. I got double the goodness!
Preparing lunch.
Scrambling tofu before putting it in the pan.

Lunch: Scramble tofu cooked with bacon, spinach, and a slice of bread with almond butter.

A walk through town with a friend. My phone was acting weird.

Dinner: Microwaved bowl of mushrooms, spices, black olives, spinach, and cheese.

Dessert: Peach Greek yogurt with pecans.

Au Revoir!


It is 1:33 in the morning and I NEED to sleep, but I just can't. *sigh

I thought it was about time to update my blog. :]

What I've been up to lately:
  • Working
  • Running (YAY)
  • Napping (From lack of sleep. I know, bad Amy.)
Changing subjects, I wanted to say:
Wouldn't it be awesome to major in gastronomy? Travel the world and eat amazing food here and there. =D

After reading so many healthy life style food blogs, I got myself motivated to change my eating habits! *Insert a crowd cheering here.*
For Breakfast:
Half a banana & a chocolate chip PB spread on bread.

My excuse: I was on a hurry after work ti eat lunch. Besides, I order two FRESCO tacos.

The reason I do not like working in the rain.

Brrrrrr. (Yes, it is possible to be freezing in the summer!)

Now this (below), I do like!

My fourth of July dinner. Thanks to my good friend Andrea!

Walking the two dogs reminded me of an old married couple.
Always side by side.

Goodnight everyone!
Vamos Espana!!

The summer of O'ten.

I apologize for my absence. Summer is going by fast/slow. haha

Fast Mode: Spending time with friends/family.
Slow Mode: Working.

A few things I been doing since I last posted:
  • I went to my freshman orientation. It was amazing! My only fear is the freshmen 15.
  • Working 6 out of 7 days a week. Sometimes it feels like school. The same feeling when you have to get out of bed early morning and go to sleep early.
  • Watching the World Cup!
  • Baking desserts
  • Exercising. My stress reliever =]
On my way to orientation!

Random street

Walking dogs. They were the "cooperative" ones.
There are also the "pullers", which unfortunately I could not take a picture of.

A two dollar drink at Starbucks. Soy Chocolate Vivanno Smoothie.
*We got a discount :D


The B-E-A-U-tiful weather in the bike trail.

I was at the wrong place to watch the sunset, but I least I got to see the sky changing colors in a matter of seconds.

When I went walking, I spotted these flowers. What are they called?
