Ruined My Dinner

in All Posts

I am this close to finishing the Food Chapter of Operation Beautiful.  The Food Chapter discusses three topics:  fad diets, eating in moderation, and eating disorders.  Not surprisingly, its working out to be the longest chapter in the book.  I have another 5 hours to do before it’s done.


Wine helped, too:


I ended up slacking off today!  The Husband and I had one of those excellent afternoons when you just lay in bed, lazily talking and snoozing.  It was great.  I need to do nothing more often.  It’s so liberating.


I woke up around 5:30 and ate a huge snack, which ruined my dinner:


I had granola + Greek yogurt + raspberries, times two.  :)  I went back for a refill.  I just LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE yogurt. 


As a result, my appetite was pretty ruined for a legitimate dinner.  I snacked on carrots and peanut butter around 8:30:


As well as a shot of wheatgrass:


I shared my carrots with Maggie and James.  Those furbabies just love their carrots!


Crazy eyes:


Off to watch some television – more wine may be in order.  My plans for tomorrow include:


  • Yoga Sculpt in the morning
  • Last Healthy Tailgate of the season!  🙁
  • Writing?  Maybe.  Let’s hope so!


Have a nice Friday!

    I could sometimes eat Greek yogurt for every meal of the day. SO good. Love that your dogs eat carrots. Will have to bring some to the shelter dogs I walk!

    Keep chugging!! Writing, I mean! Well you can keep chugging the wine too if that helps.

    glad you are almost done with that chapter!

    I love scary eyeball dog pictures! 🙂 Good luck with your writing – sounds like you’re doing a really good job of staying motivated.

    I think wine needs a special acknowledgement at the beginning of the book 😉
    Have fun tailgating! Can’t believe the season’s over

    I did yoga sculpt today and it was awesome! Love the doggie pics, my fur baby loves carrots too 🙂

    Yeah, Greek yogurt certainly does ruin appetites. It’s so filling! o_o I still haven’t tried carrots + PB, even though it’s been around the blogosphere for agggges. I’ll get to that sooner or later, but it may have to be cooked…

    Good luck writing your food chapter!

    Good luck finishing!! I love the looks on your puppies faces as they chomp on those carrots. The intensity, the focus. 🙂 Yogurt and berries are worth ruining dinner for. 😉 Yumm!

    I love the look in their eyes. Peanut and Leo look like that when we feed them snack too.

    And lounging in bed is awesome. Hunni and I did that yesterday just because we could 🙂

  • Courtney November 27, 2009, 10:34 pm

    Awwww, I miss those lazy days of lounging around!!

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is November 27, 2009, 10:51 pm

    We spent the majority of the day laying and napping and it was WONDERFUL. Love days like that.

  • Errign November 27, 2009, 11:11 pm

    McKinley, my Australian Shepherd, loves carrots too!

  • Brynne November 27, 2009, 11:36 pm

    My puppies love carrots too! Everyone thinks its weird we by bags of carrots just for them.

  • Jolene ( November 28, 2009, 12:13 am

    Those eyes sure are crazy – and so adorable! My dog always loved carrots too … strange!!!

    Sometimes everyone deserves a much needed rest day. Hopefully it will make you even more productive today.

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg November 28, 2009, 7:05 am

    That’s so funny! I’ve never tried to feed my dogs carrots, but they eat just about anything, so I’m sure they’d go for it.

    Good luck getting the rest of that chapter written!

    I love lazy days 🙂 And I also ruined my dinner with too much snacking. I think it’s normal around the holidays 🙂

  • MelissaNibbles November 28, 2009, 8:20 am

    You deserved a rest after your rumble and tumble bike ride!

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite November 28, 2009, 8:23 am

    My dog LOVES carrots! I give him a whole carrot as a treat each day 🙂

  • Lauren November 28, 2009, 8:43 am

    Greek yogurt, fruit, and granola is my favorite snack/mini-meal by far. I love the dog pics!!

  • Laura Georgina November 28, 2009, 10:39 am

    Those are great dog pictures–how many shots did it take to get the perfect pic? If it’s less than 10, you’ve got yourself some VERY well-trained dogs! And good eaters, too; mine HATES carrots….
