BBQ on the Brain and MORE Wedding Details

Chobani & Wedding Details

So last night, Future Husband and his friend really wanted to get out of the house.  I was pretty beat, but agreed to (mostly because I haven't gotten to spend ANY time with Future Hus lately).  They wanted to go to Friday's, drink beers, and watch football.   I wasn't feeling the booze... so I [...]


BBQ Chicken Mini Pizza

BBQ Chicken Pizza is one of my favorite "bad" meals.  Back in my glory days of unhealthy eating, I would eat a small BBQ Chicken Pizza (4 slices) for lunch--by myself.  I seriously thought it was a SINGLE PORTION, until I looked up the nutritional information online and discovered it had a whopping 1,200 calories [...]

Saturday Errands

Sometimes it's best to get your workout done first thing in the morning.... it just frees up the day for much more entertaining  activities!   Before I left, I had two lovely macaroons, which Gina gave me last night at dinner. And then, Meghann and I took a trip to the best WHOLE FOODS ever!  This [...]


Sweat it Out

Clearly, I am getting old/weak/lame, because those two glasses of wine totally did me in! I woke up with a dry mouth and a teeny headache.  I know from experience that the best thing I can do is go SWEAT IT OUT, so I headed to the gym.   To calm my quesy stomach, I [...]


Seasons 52

You've got to love a restaurant where the waitress introduces herself and then states, "Everything on the menu is 475 calories or less, and we use no butter, oily saturated fats, or deep drying."  Seasons 52 is food bloggers HEAVEN!   And yes, between five bloggers at one table, there was a CRAZY amount of [...]



I cannot...move...from...the couch.  After my AM post, I actually fell asleep on the couch/floor, in all my clothes! I woke up STUNNED an hour and a half later. :)   Of course, I woke up hungry.  A reader had e-mailed me about tofu cooking methods, which obviously made me carve TOFU! I made a rub [...]


Slow and Steady

Sorry for the late post, but it takes a LONG TIME to run 14.0 miles! YUP -- I DID IT!  I'm so happy to know that I can run this distance, and it makes me feel much more confident for my 15k (1 week) and Half Marathon (2 weeks).  Here are my statistics:   Duration: [...]


Why Not?

On my 5.0 mile run tonight, I got to thinking about why I run.  I realized I can't define it in just one sentence or even two.   I run because one day I might not be able to. I run because it's more Earth-friendly than driving to the gym and plugging into the treadmill. [...]



Hello, hello! Is it just me, or is this day FLYING by? It's actually a BAD thing because I have a LOAD of work to do and not enough time! GULP! Nothing a little overtime won't fix. :)   Mid-Morning Snack   Normally, I have a piece of fruit in the AM, but I was [...]


Tropical Thursday

Three cheers for Thursday! I'm particularly excited because (1) I have tomorrow off; and (2) I get to go running tonight! I've only run ONCE this week, and the lack of mileage is seriously killing me. :) I can't wait for work to be over so I can run, run, run!   Last night's blogger [...]


Pot Luck Dinner with Bloggers

You've got to hand it to the power of the Internet -- it sure brings people together! I think we were all suppose to be sticking out our tongues on that photo! I couldn't stop laughing. :)    Tonight's blogger pot luck with Meghann and Jenna was very fun--and we saved tons of cash by [...]


Key Supplements

Work has been.... well, work. You know.   Around 10:00, I had a lovely banana. Check out those dual monitors in the background; fancy, huh? And at 11:30 (again, so early!... I must stop with the early lunches), I had a baked tofu + black bean + spinach wrap. A delicious combo!   And on [...]


Someone Put a Vegetable in My Smoothie!

It's official -- putting veggies in a smoothie adds another dimension of taste.  I've tried spinach, which was fabulous, and this  morning, I added 1/2 a sweet potato. Breakfast- Peaches and Potato Smoothie   Packed with fiber AND protein, this smoothie is sure to keep my tummy feeling satisfied all morning long.   Ingredients   [...]
