Smile More, Eat Less

Ok. Can we just talk about the title before getting into my weekend recap?

I was reading a gossip magazine at the beauty saloon today (**edited to add – it actually happend on Friday!), and I found an advertisement with this one simple sentence: “Smile More, Eat Less”.


I think it´s so wrong that advertisings like this get to be part of magazines. Ok, they were gossip ones, but stil… It´s just WRONG to tell someone to eat less and smile more! It´s such a STUPID and RIDICULOUS advice!

I´m sorry, guys. I think I´ve let it get to me too much… Oh, well.

How do you feel about this type of advertisment?

Let´s move on to happy things now…

I have a lot to say and a only a few minutes to spend(as usual)!

Friday was fun… I was so excited by the fact that I had a party to go to… :)



Recently-discovered love :)


1 sliced apple, 1 teaspoon of PB&Co´s Cinnamon Raisinn Swirl. YUM!

Morning Snack


Nature Valley´s Oats N´Honey granola bar.



1 big chunk of baked butternut squash, sliced carrot, sliced tomato, grilled chicken, mashed squash and sprinkled grated beets, PLUS…


2 tbsp of black beans.


I think I fell in love! Haha :)



2 slices of whole wheat with 2 tbsp of cottage cheese and an apple :)

After dinner, I went to the party –it was TONS of fun! I spent some time with friends I rarely see – unfortunately! Goofy-moment:



Gotta LOOVE these girls!

When I got back home, I was a little hungry – so I managed to have some papaya and melon slices… Fresh fruit, y´all!




I woke up by 10 am on Saturday… Which I regretted SO much, later on. I should´ve slept until noon! Haha ;)


Two words: terrific. combo.


~4 tbsp of cottage cheese, 1/2 cumbled granola bar…


And an apple.


Altogether, now. Can´t get any better :)


After breakfast, I spent the whole day studying Physics. I´m not even kidding – I only paused for lunch at around 4 pm. The rest of the afternoon was all about STUDIES! Argh…


1 baked sweet potato, steamed califlower, tomato slices, sprinkled carrots and beets, and a side of 3 tbsp of black beans. Never gets old!


Actually, I went to a party last night… It was my Aunt´s baby shower! The baby is due to May. I told her I think May 2th will be the big day… I just feel it ;)

They were making crêpes at the party! Obviously, I ended up trying one.


Heart-Of-Palms and Spinach crêpe with lettuce and (only a few, unfortunately) mini-tukey brest slices. Can you see the really small sprinkles…?

It was actually good! I know it´s the weirdest combo, but I swear it was really yummy :)

Night Snack

As I had eaten an early dinner, by 11 pm my stomach started to complain. So I cut some pineapple slices… Fresh n´Fabulous!


I know – my cutting skills are nonexistent. But the pineapple was totally worth it :D


Hum. Today was quite a day…

I woke up at around noon (I know – INCREDIBLE, right?), with my friend calling me on the phone. She needed some help with physics, so I quickly got up and started studying – for hours and hours! It was 2 pm before I knew it. And had completely forgotten about breakfast! This had never happend before!

This is weird. In a bad way :/

By 2:15 pm, Mom called – she said we would go out for lunch. I quickly took a shower and got dressed. When she arrived, though, Bruna asked out loud: “Did you have breakfast? ´Cause I didn´t see it.”

It was enough for my Mom to begin screaming at me. She said a million things… And made me feel like crap. I started crying so hard…

We fought and shouted at each other for a long time. It was awful. I hate discussing with Mom :(

But let´s cut to the good part. Eventually, we agreeded to stop. When we arrived at the mall, things were still a little weird between us – she wouldn´t talk to me. After a while, though…

She said she didn´t want me be sick. And that she wouldn´t pay me salads, sandwiches or veggie combos – I should eat “real food”. Oh, crap.

We ended up at a buffet-style restaurant, where you only pay for what you´re eating. Obviously, she made sure I would fill up my plate. It was SO much food…



Oh, yeah. Like I said – TONS of food.

In the “mix”:

-Steamed Cauliflower, Broccoli and Zucchini


-Cucumber and White Cheese Salad

-Heart-Of-Palms “Heart-y” Cupcake

-Red and Yellow Peppers

-1 (really tiny) slice of Grilled Salmon

-Salmon Lasagna


I gotta admit – it was good. But it was REALLY heavy! I almost could´ve lift up my tray…(ok, exaggerating a bit…But still)

With a Peach-Flavoured Iced Tea…



I´m glad I made up with Mom. She´s the best, and fighting with her is the worst thing in the world… I love her too much.

And then, last but not least…



I´ve had two whole wheat toasts.

Toast One: melted white cheese.

Toast Two: 1 tbsp of cottage cheese.


And a drizzle of dijon mustard added a little later – LOVE!

And, for dessert…


Three gorgeous slices of fresh pineapple.

I´m addicted :D

Anyhow – I need to get back to the grind! After lunch, we spent a few hours shopping… And Mom bought me the cutest pair of jeans :D

Physics time!



Hope y´all had an amazing weekend. And thanks for the latest comments, guys - you´re all too sweet!
