Ice Cream for Dinner

This is going to be a quickie -- I'm watching the MTV Movie Awards (for the first time in like a decade).  You know you're getting hold when you do not recognize 75% of the actors/actresses in the audience! :)  But the New Moon trailer is premiering so that's enough to old my attention.   [...]

40 Miles!

The last long bike ride before my Metric Century was a success!  :) Kelly and I drove about 45 miles southwest of Orlando to the Van Fleet State Trail, which is about 30-miles long in total. It was an amazing trail -- long, straight, shaded, and flat.  It's in a rural area so there were [...]

Carb Loading :)

Morning!  I'm going on a 40-mile bike ride with Kelly, Meghann's sister.   We're traveling to the General James A. Van Fleet State Trail, a 30-mile rail-trail west of Orlando.  A rail-trail is a former railroad that has been converted to a trail. This rail-trail is one of Florida’s most rural. It runs through the [...]

Not as Easy as It Looks

Two and a half hours later, several blisters, and one popped tube.... I changed both of the tubes and one of the tires on my bike!   I watched this video and I read this article before I started. Replacing the front tire and tube was really easy (well, it took me about 30 minutes).  [...]

Biking Peer Pressure

Afternoon!  Sorry I've been away so long -- its been a wild and crazy Saturday, as usual.    I worked from 8 am to 2:00 PM.  I packed my lunch per my usual MO: The star of my lunch was an AWESOME Kettle Corn Pro Bar.  It had REAL chunks of toasted corn in it! [...]

Smashed Banana Waffles

Good morning! I feel a little better today, but just a little tired.  Although that could be from waking up at 6 for work....   Breakfast was a nice pick-me-upper: From the freezer, I unearthed two Hodsgon's Mills Insta Bake waffles I had made earlier in the week and froze.  After toasting them, I topped [...]

Beer and Pizza Make Me Feel Better

I feel a lot better - maybe I just needed some R&R?   Mid-afternoon snack was Kashi Heart to Heart: And for dinner, I finally took the suggestion off the back of the Flat Out Wrap package and made myself a pizza. My Flat Out Pizza runneth over! I was super impressed with the Flat [...]

More New Moon Updates

I'm sure the vast majority of my readers think I'm behaving like a 12-year old for being so obsessed with Twilight, but at the same time -- I know a LOT of you are JUST AS OBSESSED!   Did you know the New Moon trailer is debuting on Sunday on the MTV Movie Awards?   [...]

Bicycling Etiquette

I worked for about an hour this AM and called off sick.  I feel terrible!   Not terrible enough to skip lunch though, of course. :) I had 1/2 cup Roasted Red Pepper soup, a whole wheat English muffin with melted cheese, and broc.  It was a nice lunch for a lady with a sick [...]

Bittersweet

My sleepover with Meghann was so fun!  We watched So You Think You Can Dance and talked about the marathon she's running on Sunday.  We discussed fueling options and how I secretly think she's going to qualify for Boston.  :)   We woke up at 5:50 AM so I could take her to the airport [...]

Bumper Stickers!

I want to clarify one of my statements made on the Good, Bad, and the Ugly of Food Blogs post.  When I said I delete negative comments, I did not mean "dissenting" comments.  Some of you took this remark out of context -- I do NOT delete opinions that differ from mine or constructively criticize; [...]

Ginger and Brazil Nut Tofu

I loved hearing your feedback on the Good, Bad, and Ugly of food blogs.  Keep those comments coming; I know other people like to read them, too.   Lunch was something to celebrate! I haven't eaten tofu in DAYS and was really looking forward to a tofu-centric meal!   The star ingredient was.... I based [...]

I am so excited! I woke up to an e-mail from Ryan at Chasing Daylight letting me know she was moving into an apartment that is LITERALLY 2.0 miles from my house!  Ryan is a really sweet girl, and I'm super pumped to have a new neighbor!   It made my morning!   So did [...]
