Lazy Saturday

Lazy Saturday? Yep, I have that down to a science.

The rainy, blah weather motivated me to accomplish absolutely nothing today. Ok, I did a little work, but, really, I was such a waste of space. I even blew off my 10-mile run with my team this morning. Wicked lame, right? Yea, I feel bad about that. Sorry, Nick and Elizabeth. Please don’t kick me off of the team!

I slept until 9:30 this morning, which is some sort of record for me, so when I finally got out of bed, my stomach was growling like crazy. It’s used to eating at 7:00 AM!

For breakfast, Mal whipped up a couple of egg and cheese sandwiches for us. I had mine on a toasted poppy seed Bagel Thin with an iced coffee on the side.

After breakfast, I spent the rest of the morning catching up with emails and other work since I’m still a little behind after my trip to Las Vegas last week.


For lunch, I enjoyed Oats In A Jar. In the mix: oats, soy milk, banana slices, walnuts, chia seeds, and a little extra peanut butter.

While I ate, Murphy watched closely. He knows that I’ll give him the rest of the peanut butter jar once I am finished eating. A pug never forgets things like this.

I guess I took my sweet time eating because Murphy started to give me a few dirty looks. He’s so impatient sometimes. He must get that from me.

Eventually, Murphy’s persistence paid off.

At one point, Murphy backed the jar into a corner for better peanut butter licking.

He’s so smart. He must get that from me his dad.

Murphy went to town on the peanut butter jar, so Mal and I stood by and laughed (at him).

A few hours later, Mal brought home a new bag of dog food.

Murphy was PSYCHED!!! Look at those crazy pug eyes!

He’s so food obsessed! He definitely gets that from me!

I wasn’t in the mood to make anything elaborate for dinner tonight (and our kitchen was in shambles because Mal was fixing our sink), so I threw a frozen Barbeque Chicken pizza from Whole Foods in the oven. Quick and simple.

The pizza tasted pretty good, but, for the price ($5), I’m not sure I’d buy it again. (There was a coupon in The Whole Deal for $1 off, so I gave it a try this time.)

With the pizza, I added a big arugula salad topped with flax oil and balsamic vinegar.

I also ate a bunch of Chocolate Sunflower Butter Cookies over the course of the day. There’s actually only ONE left now! I should probably just finish it off, right?

I hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday night. I’m off to continue my laziness. I haven’t even showered yet today.


  1. I love your dog!
    K let’s talk lazy- I DROVE to a yoga class tonight and didn’t feel like going in, so I DROVE home. How lazy is that? I felt bad too- but there I will make up for it tomorrow. It was hatha yoga too… not even power yoga! Yikes.

    Have a great evening…

  2. Lazy Saturdays are the best. After a late night on fri, all I did was lie on my bed yday! The best part is that there’s still Sunday left to get things done!

  3. I miss my dogs! They’re living with my mother until I’m through with apartment living… First order of business when I get them back? OIAJ! haha Murphy looks so cute attacking that jar!

  4. I totally had a lazy Saturday in as well! The rain wasn’t very motivating at all…I totally understand. And Murphy is so cute. I finished reading your book yesterday (yes, I’m fast), and I loved reading more about him. 🙂

  5. You seem so blue , Tina 🙁 Seems to me it must not be fun to have a lazy Saturday, but not really allow yourself to enjoy it. Hope you feel better tomorrow!! <3

  6. When we buy a new bag of dog food, we let Chase have a (very short) self-serve buffet, just because it’s so funny to watch him go to town on a massive pile of food. Dogs are so funny!

  7. Hahaha! We’d NEVER kick you off the team. I completely wiped out on D Street (on a slippery grate thing) and ran the next 7 miles covered in dirt. Very attractive. Hope you enjoyed your lazy Saturday– you’ve got to take those when you can get ’em! 🙂

  8. I love a good lazy Saturday with my husband. However he does not sit around to well so these do not happen very often, but are always better when they do!
