Oh my goodness, I’ve eaten so much delicious food today!! Basically, I ate allllll day long. I’m not complaining, but holy moly! The good eats just don’t stop coming! But, doesn’t healthy living = good eating!? 😉 Lunch Kath did a great job planning the menu for the HLS lunch. It was healthy, delicious, and fun! Watching other bloggers take photos of their food never gets old. I feel right at home with these folks!…

Something crazy happened at Body Pump tonight: I increased my weight on biceps to 23 pounds!!! Ok, this probably doesn’t blow your mind at all, but this is a huge deal for me. I’ve been taking Body Pump classes, 2-3 times per week, for nearly 7 months now, but I have yet to increase my weight on biceps. It’s the only muscle group where I haven’t made progress. Before the biceps track started, Mal saw…

Umm… Excuse me, sir, you know you’re not supposed to have that stuffed pug. Murphy knew I was watching his every move, but he didn’t care. What a butthead. Lunch I had a few sushi rolls leftover from last night’s dinner, so I added them to a big salad for lunch today. I thought the rolls might taste funky sitting in the fridge overnight, but they didn’t at all. Also in the mix: lettuce, celery,…

As you probably know, my husband thinks pug meat is delicious. Apparently, Murphy does too! 😉 Check out what Murphy got a hold of this morning. It’s the little stuffed pug that sits on our bed. (My webmaster gave it to me long before Murphy came into my life.) A pug eating a pug. Isn’t that pug cannibalism? The whole situation was pretty funny. Murphy knew that he wasn’t supposed to have the stuffed pug…

Yowsahs!! Where has this day gone!?! It’s lunchtime and I haven’t even blogged yet. Jeez. Let’s get right to it then! 😀 Breakfast I started my day with a piece of leftover Tortilla-Crusted Feta-and-Broccoli Quiche and an iced coffee with vanilla soy milk. The quiche was really yummy, by the way. I reheated it in the microwave and the tortilla crust stayed crispy. Snack After breakfast, I snacked on a banana. I planned to go to a…

Don’t you love it when recipes turn out so better than you expect? I had high hopes for tonight’s dinner and it definitely surpassed them. It was an egg-cellent meal! 😉 Tortilla-Crusted Feta-and-Broccoli Quiche Recipe inspired by Rachel Ray’s Tortilla-Crusted Goat Cheese-and-Asparagus Quiche INGREDIENTS: Four 7-inch whole wheat tortillas 1 cup broccoli florets 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 red onion, finely chopped 4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled 4 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 1…

My food cravings are so random sometimes. A few hours after breakfast (overnight oats + iced coffee) this morning, my taste-buds wanted something cool, sweet, and creamy, but also crunchy and salty. There were lots of competing cravings, but I just went with it. So, for lunch today, I ended up pairing a banana smoothie with kale chips. It was random, yet nutritious and delicious. The banana smoothie was easily the highlight of the meal. In…

As I was uploading my photos into Ecto for this post, I realized that it was very Carrots ‘N’ Cake-like. It starts with a healthy salad, ends with dessert, and there’s a cute pug in the middle. Doesn’t it just scream CNC?!? 😉 After a 4.5-hour bus ride home from NYC, Mal picked me up from the T station and we headed straight home to make dinner. We were both starving, so we threw together…

I can’t believe my weekend in Vermont is all over. How sad. 😥 BUT, Mal and I already have a plan in the works to visit again this fall. Hopefully, I can make it until then! 😉 Breakfast After a late-night of partying, we ended up sleeping in a little bit. Once we got moving, Mal, Murphy, and I headed out to grab iced coffees for everyone while Dave and Marie started on breakfast. Dave…

Murphy has a lot of nicknames: Turd Ferguson (or just “Turd” for short) Gremlin Piranha Brickhead (Mal calls him this) Lazy Pants McGee Today, he’s been Lazy Pants McGee all day long. Murphy even slept while sitting in my lap. Well, sorta. Snack Mid-morning, my stomach started to grumble, so I made half of wrap with Barney Butter and a sprinkle of ground flaxseed meal spread inside. It kept my stomach quiet until lunchtime. Lunch…

I had planned to go for a serious power walk after work today, but the rain messed up my plans. Boooo! Instead, I got my bootay moving in the kitchen! 😉 I whipped up a batch of Cherry-Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies. Oh, yes, I did! 😀 Cherry-Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Makes approximately 10 cookies Ingredients: 1 cup old-fashioned oats 1/3 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 cup dried cherries 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips 1…

This afternoon, Mal and I received the best anniversary card in the mail from my mom. It pretty much sums up our marriage! 😉 Inside, it says: “Making faces behind the back of whoever’s acting childish helps, too.” Love it! Mal and I are always acting childish and goofy together. I swear, we act like we’re 5-years-old most of the time! 😉 But, hey, lots of laugher makes for a great marriage, right? Lunch I…

Woah. Monday is really flying by for me! I’m not complaining since I am getting a lot done and we’re that much closer to the weekend, but, jeez, where did the hours go!?! (Is it bad that I’m already looking forward to next weekend? 😉 ) Lunch Lunch was fast, simple, and especially delicious this afternoon. I made a big salad with lots of fresh veggies, basil & tomato Athenos feta, and balsamic vinegar. There were…

My husband is awesome, but he sometimes forgets to tell me about plans he’s made for the two of us– like today, for instance, when he told his friend we’d go on his boat. I’m not complaining (boating + friends is lots of fun), but I was sure surprised when Mal told me this at 9 o’clock this morning! 😯 After waking up at the Hotel Veritas, we met Dave and Marie at their apartment…

I woke up feeling like a zombie this morning. Traveling + time zones totally messed me up. I had one of those mornings when you wake up and have no idea where you are or what day it is. It actually took me a little while to figure it out! Mal and I made plans with Dave and Marie to go to Body Pump, so I forced my butt out of bed. Thankfully, Body Pump…
