Oh friends!  Thanks for talking sense into me this morning when I contemplated signing up for a Half Ironman.  Although I do this the race would be awesomely fun and exciting, I should just chill out and enjoy doing a few more sprints and Olympics.  Sometimes I really do let readers make my life decisions.  Heh.


Well – on that note, I’m going to call it an early night because I’ve got to be at the airport for a 6 AM flight.  I have an Operation Beautiful presentation to deliver to a group of Catholic teens in Michigan tomorrow – and I’m doing a crazy out-and-back trip in just one day.


I did eat some delicious meals today!  Sometimes the simplest things really are the tastiest.  Lunch was scrambled eggs with Mmmm Sauce and some greens with beets and balsamic.


Mmmm Sauce is SOOO FABULOUS with eggs.  Try it!


The Husband was in charge of dinner.  He put this plate in front of me with a flourish.  Roasted purple potatoes, broccoli, collard greens, and Wolfgang Puck veggie soup.

    Have a great trip!! I’m sure everything You do In coordination With operation beautiful is Just as or more inspiring than what I see on this blog And in the book.. which is hard to believe.

  • Johanna July 4, 2011, 10:14 pm

    I have decided that I must make Mmmmm Sauce soon! Hope you have a smooth trip!

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga July 4, 2011, 10:15 pm

    Good luck with your day trip. That’s an ambitious trip but I know you’ll rock your presentation.

    Mmmm sauce. I think you are the biggest champion of that sauce to date in the sphere. I need to make it yet. I know, I am slow and behind the times 🙂

    I love Mmmm sauce, and you are right it is good on everything! Have a great trip, happy July 4th!

  • ashley@cookingforjohn July 4, 2011, 10:20 pm

    have a safe flight, where are you traveling to in michigan?

  • Sam July 4, 2011, 10:20 pm

    Yum, I have wanted to try that sauce for so long! I bet it was awesome on eggs. I love eggs and toast!

  • Sarah July 4, 2011, 10:22 pm

    I love that sauce beyond words. Yes, put it on eggs, salad, pasta, rice and sandwiches. There is nothing I have put it on that it hasn’t enhanced.
    The sauce and I are BFF’s now.

    Have a safe trip tomorrow!

    I missed your post today about thinking about signing up for a 1/2 Ironman — I admit that I briefly (key word: briefly) considered signing up for one after reading about a few bloggers training for them. But there is no way I can fit that training into my schedule and I don’t think my body is ready for it either!

    Hsve a great 1 day trip! I was just in Michigan this past weekend. It was fantastic!

  • Corrie Anne July 4, 2011, 10:47 pm

    Awwa you’re cute! Have a good trip! That’s probably a good decision although I don’t have tri advice for you since I’ve never tried one. But maybe you will inspire me to do it one day. I haven’t been brave enough to venture out on anything but my own two feet. haha

  • Lizzy July 4, 2011, 10:57 pm

    safe travels! supposed to be a BEAUTIFUL day tomorrow here in good ol’ Michigan!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing July 4, 2011, 11:05 pm

    Every blog I read tonight makes me crave something different… and now, scrambled eggs!!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 4, 2011, 11:35 pm

    I gotta try mmmm sauce! Thanks 🙂

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 4, 2011, 11:40 pm

    Have fun in Michigan!

  • Fit Chick Britt July 4, 2011, 11:43 pm

    I think focusing on sprint and olympic before tackling a half ironman is a good idea. I need to try mmm sauce!

  • Khushboo July 5, 2011, 1:12 am

    Safe travels!

  • Aine @ Something to Chew Over July 5, 2011, 5:25 am

    Looks great! Have a safe flight and good luck with your presentation.

  • Gina G July 5, 2011, 8:26 am

    Where at in Michigan?!?! haha sorry, i live hear and I would be so so excited if i lived close by and could come to the presentation!

    • Gina G July 5, 2011, 8:27 am


      • Caitlin July 5, 2011, 10:38 am

        Flint! 🙂 It’s a private presentation though – we’d have to sneak you in!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 5, 2011, 12:13 pm

    I think that’s a good decision – you deserve to relax for a bit after finishing your book instead of hopping right into training. You’ve still got your whole life ahead of you to do a half Ironman! 🙂
