Good afternoon! How are you? I’m good… work is work. I have a lot to do this week, so I’m totally buckling down and focusing.
A Fine Balance
I did take a brief break to look at the news (gotta stay up to date on the election!) and I saw this article on New York Times. It’s a very interesting profile of a gourmet chef who took up running and lost 45 pounds while training for the NY Marathon. Because he loves food so much, he has a very balanced outlook on running and eating:
“If you have to get up at 7 a.m. and run a 20k, maybe you have a half a glass of wine instead of three, because three at Mile 4 — you start to feel every ounce of that wine,” he said.
It’s Freezing in Here!
By the way, it’s FREEZING in central Florida right now…. relatively speaking. I cracked all the windows so I could turn off the AC, and now it’s an ice box in my apartment. Maggie is walking around in her winter coat to stay warm (James has enough fur as it is):
She could be a model, seriously.
Snacks and Lunch
Around 10, I had a Spooky Smores Z-Bar. Do you think they’ll come out with a Christmas flavor?!
And for lunch, I was positively craving a grilled cheese sammie. I love to eat hot sandwiches when it’s cold outside!
I added some spinach to make it a tad healthier…
And I sliced the sandwich into quarters to make it last a little longer. Otherwise, I tend to just shove the whole half in my mouth at once!
On the side, I had a huge carrot and a Gala apple, sprinkled with cinnamon.
Wedding Details: Favors!
I wanted to show you all our wedding favors. We are doing tons of "DIY" projects for the wedding (favors, programs, candles, etc). We decided to go with candy for the favors because we wanted something inexpensive and practical. And who doesn’t like candy?
I bought silver boxes from Beaucoup.com, and we’re going to fill them up with yellow M&Ms (our wedding color).
I used MyWeddingLabels.com to create lovely scallop-shaped stickers that say our names and "Thank You." The palm tree motif is part of our overall Florida theme.
I hope our guests will enjoy them! I always like receiving candy at weddings. 🙂
Back to the grind! See you for a workout and dinner!
