Breakfast success!


Combine in a bowl:

  • plain or vanilla greek yogurt [I like vanilla, and Oikos!]
  • Kashi Go Lean Crunch
  • Apple, chopped, cinnamoned and microwaved

Mouth party!


Open invitation. [twss]

Lunch = Operation Veggie.


Two things:

  • Yams
  • Broccoli

Both were had in ginormous portions. Love.


In all my Halloween celebrations I realized I had been remiss in sharing pictures of the little sisters!

I ignored the most basic rule of blogging, which is: Kids or dogs are usually cuter than you.

Native American riding a pink horse! Wonder what influenced that decision?

Cute cowgirl + Nerd.

Both were perfect in their own way!


Fun news:

Holly ran her first half marathon yesterday and rocked it! Way to go, girl!

I registered for the Fitbloggin’ conference over the weekend. Who else is going?

Yo! 😉

Glad everyone enjoyed our pumpkin carving festivities. ‘Twas a night to be remembered indeed. If you are looking to throw a pah-tay I suggest pumpkin carving as a theme, indeed.

This morn I could not think of a quickie breakfast I wanted more than toast.

So toast it was.


And what a toast!

Strawberry + Ricotta toast and plain Butter toast.

Both come strongly recommended from my toast lovin’ mouth.

Lunchi was exciting, because guess who remembered their pasta sauce from last week?

ME, that’s who!

So I had a Hugh Jass bowl of carb loading 15 mile running pasta.


AND, although it looks to have no veggies, it’s fooling you.



There’s an entire carrot and a zucchini in that sucka!

Now it’s work, work, work and gym lata! Gotta work those kinks out of these legs.

You know what would make me really cheery?

A S’more Z-bar up in this joint.

But alas, they are cleverly hiding from me, so I picked up a Luna S’more instead.

Recently Updated

But I don’t think that’s really the same.

It doesn’t have that cute Halloween packaging.

Anyway, these flowers cheered me up.

Because they are quite lovely, that is why.

And then this dinner did much more than cheer me up.


It also filled me up.

  • Organic Ragu
  • 1 grated carrot
  • 1 grated zucchini
  • 1/2 can garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 onion

Serve over whole wheat penne and top with feta cheese.


  • Makes 2 meals
  • Delicious


  • Dirties multiple pots

The pros far outweigh the cons in this case.


Also making me cheery: Bublé singing ‘Heartache Tonight’. 😀

Well I know everyone has just been on pins and needles waiting to hear whether I actually got up and went to spin class this morning.

I know I was.

The answer is, I DID. And it was wondrous. Might be a new Thursday routine. Except I don’t really like getting ready for work in the gym locker room, but that’s a small price to pay for getting my work out in early.

Plus, Starbucks is nearby, so I could have breakfast there on Thursdays. Now that’s a temptation.

Today though, I had a slice of banana bread I packed.


Plus a giant mug of coffee.


And then my boss offered me half a blueberry scone, which I promptly gobbled up.


That was all well and good and delicious.

Now lunch.

Well lunch on the other hand, I have been having a hard time getting excited for lately.

I literally never want anything to eat at lunch time.

And I just pick at my food.

Much like I am doing to this salad currently.


I mean, it’s such a pretty salad.


Why don’t I want to eat it?

I did eat this apple.


But I didn’t love it.

And I have eaten this half of a bagel.


Meh, didn’t really care for that either.

And an apple and a bagel does not a lunch make.

An apple and a bagel just =  a lot of carbs.


Look at that pretty lunch!

But I just don’t have any appetite for it. In fact I am quite miserable about it.

I used to love lunch. Lunch was the highlight of my day.

And now that love is just gone. Gone. Gone.

Like the wind.

Behold the return of…


MR Z-BAR!!!!

Sorry to say that Mr. Z-bar did not do anything interesting today. I was too busy working.

And then I got busy going to the gym.

Pushups, crunches and an hour on the treadmill.

Can hardly walk or use my upper body.

Ah, well it’s all for a greater good, right? 😉

Since I didn’t get to have oatmeal at breakfast, I chose that for dinner.


Spicy, spinachy, eggy oatmeal!


  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 3/4 cup water
  • feta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • hot sauce


Runny yolk = love. ♥


6 am spin class in the morning! Fingers crossed that I don’t oversleep again!

Two Question Tuesday:

See above ^ for my answer.

2.) Who’s your celeb crush?

Mine varies, but it’s usually a singer. Something about a man with a sexy voice…oh my.

In answer to the question [although it’s obvious] right now it’s Bublé.

Nothing special here.


Buttered toast.

‘Twas my breakfast, yes indeed.

And then when I got to the office, I had a coffee.


Well, a rather large coffee.

And for lunch, I packed something I haven’t had in a while.


Mixing Bowl Salad.


Hugh Jass Salad.


Strawberry Poppyseed Salad.



And well, salad is not really a fall food.

Fall is more for soup. And cider. And hot chocolate.

Not really salad.

Especially fruity salad.


With fruit on the side.


But regardless, that’s what I had.

And that’s what I ate.

Tell me. What foods make you think of fall?


Currently obsessed with:

Thanks to blog reader Ava, for recommending this song, and Meghan for letting me know the video was on Youtube. Love.
