November 21st, 2008: Lunch

Hi guys! I’m doing a lunch post because I’m not sure what Scott and I are doing for dinner this evening. We’re either staying in or having a date night and going out. Both sound appealing to me, especially date night because then I can wear a skirt!

Can we discuss how cold it was this morning for my run? It was 20degrees with 10mph winds which brought wind chill with it. Brrrr! I had my toboggan on and my hood up! I have to roll my hood a little bit because it’s too big for my head. :p I look goofy but it works!

I did my new longerish route today because I didn’t run yesterday and my shins were just peachy so I piled on the miles!! It took me a little longer thanks to the wind. Thank you Mo’ Nature for deciding I needed some resistance training during my run today! I was the only one out and about, I didn’t see any other joggers today.

I came back and drank down a big glass of CS and then it was back out with Rocks. He normally loves cold weather, but I think today was even too cold for him and he had his big boy jacket on too!

I did not do any Wii Yoga today, I kicked that to the curb for today. I showered which felt soooo amazing! A hot shower after a workout is one of my favorite things ever. Then I made us some lunch and did the dishes.



Since I felt like a lug yesterday, I decided to make sure I got in veggies today! I made a HUGE salad for lunch, it had:

  • Spinach
  • Romaine
  • 1/4 Chicken breast that I made yesterday
  • A couple of scoops of rice and beans from Wednesday
  • Chopped red onion
  • Sunflower and pumpkin seeds


I topped that with a small drizzle of WF ranch dressing. In the middle is carrot, celery, and cumcuber, WF veggie chips with some roasted red pepper hummus.

I dig the veggie chips but don’t eat too much since I believe these are still fried. They are better dipped in something like hummus or pizza sauce (or so I’ve heard! ;) ).

As I was cleaning up I had some nuts! I bought a bag of mixed whole nuts at WF. They are so good! I had a Brazil nut, 1/2 a pecan, and an almond. Mmmmmm (No pic because it REFUSED to upload.  Bugger.)

After lunch it was time for weekly house cleaning. I busted that out in record time and it was finally time to just sit and relax in the office working and doing bloggy related things. As I was reading blogs I saw that Bobbi gave me an award! Wheee!! That’s my first bloggy award!

Here are the rules:

Post the award on your blog
Link to me for giving it to you
Link the originating post here
Pass it on to five deserving people
Post these rules for your recipients

I’ve got four, so I’m giving this out to:

CarolineBee over at Banana Cabana, she just started her blog so she needs all our foodie support!

Alison at Alison’s Lunch, guys if you haven’t seen her site, go now! She’s in Alaska and posts the most amazing veggie dishes made with local ingredients.

Bryan at Cheaplander, we all can use tips to live within a budget and how to handle the current economy.

Dragon over at Dragon’s Kitchen, she posts some of the most beautiful recipes.



I started getting a little hungry late afternoon so I opted for some peppermint tea, 1/4 C of 2% fage with some bear naked  banana nut, and a peppermint square.

YUM!  The peppermint square totally hit the spot and went so well with the tea.

Okay guys, I’m off to figure out what to do about dinner and feed Rocks. Happy Friday!!
