And the cold sets in

You should see me – I am wrapped in my favorite fleece blanket. It is cold, bone chilling cold. Dramatic? Maybe, but I am not used to this fall weather yet. It was a beautiful sunny day but the high was only 61 and right now it’s 50. Brrrr! However, I am extremely cold all of the time!
PS – Jenna, I am so sorry that your heater isn’t working right now! 😦

Well, onto today.
This morning I woke up, brewed some java and starting getting down to business. Writing.

As I have been mentioning I am going to be writing nutritional articles to an online personal fit website. I needed to submit my first one, along with a bio, this weekend and another one in the next few days. I wrote my first article on Clean Eating – what else?! I promise to post links as soon as can!

All that writing made me hungry so I made a nice bowl of yogurt, granola, apple slices and almond butter – it hit the spot!

Weird fact about me #598: I can’t eat lunch BEFORE I take a shower. It has to be AFTER. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the joy of knowing I get to go into the kitchen and make myself something yummy after a nice hot shower. Or maybe I feel the need to be clean so late in the day. Strange, huh.
What is a crazy fact about you and food?

Today I nibbled on some terriyaki bits that I made a few days back while I was contemplating what I REALLY was going to eat.

I finally settled on a chicken breast sandwich.

  • sprouted bread
  • lots of hummus
  • baby spinach leaves
  • avocado, added after the fact
  • tomato slices
  • s & p
  • chicken breast chunks that Marc bbqued last night

Paired with a nice cup of Pacific french onion soup.


And since it was Sunday and game day I had to have a beer. I ended up only drinking half but it really hit the spot!

I am sad to say that this will be the last produce I get from my little container garden this year. =(

Since the frost is coming, my plants will soon be black and dead. I was able to salvage the last of my un-ripened tomatoes and my cute little green peppers. I seriously don’t know what happened to my peppers this year – they are not supposed to be this small and this is the first time I picked from the plant. Hopefully they will taste good! I know the tomatoes ROCK but they will have to ripen in the window for a while. I have never had green tomatoes, as in fried green tomatoes, because they just don’t sound that appealing to me. Oh well…

After the bulk of the games were over with we went to the grocery store to pick up some fruit and a few other items. Jordan has outgrown all of his hats so we went to the baby section and found an adorable fleece hat! (Fred Meyer rocks because it’s a grocery store AND a department store!) We also found the cutest outfit for dress up dinners or nice events. It’s a little big but should fit him this winter. I think I am going to wrap it up and have him open it at his party.

If you are a parent, what did you buy your little one for their first birthday?

Marc and I ate rather late tonight, around 7:30. We had separate dinners tonight so I went a little creative. I am bored of my salads and I saw a post tonight on veggie burgers and it looked so appetizing! Veggie burger it was!

  • flat bread bread/bun
  • pesto
  • feta
  • veggie burger
  • tomato
  • spinach leaves
  • s & p
  • avocado

OMG – I could have eaten two (or more) of these! I scarfed it down so quickly, you would have thought I hadn’t eaten in days! This is definitely a combo I am eating again, very soon!

And a nice bowl of big, juicy green grapes.

Today was a perfect Sunday – surrounded by the ones I love the most. I hope everyone had a great weekend, as well. Enjoy your Monday!

  1. I usually have to shower after a workout before I can eat…but not when I'm not dripping sweat!! Your bfast yogurt bowl looks SO good…I'm planning on yogurt in the morning and I'm gonna add some AB too!

  2. That sandwich looks amazing! For our little one's first birthday, we bought him the laugh and learn house. I also find that bubble machines and mini ball pits are a huge hit with that age.

  3. Your eats look delicious! Here in Phoenix it is still in the 80s and 90s, but after it being 115 all summer, I have been pulling out the long sleeves!

  4. Thank goodness your man retrieved all your hard work!!!Arent sammies the best with hummus? Yours looks fab. And the soup. I am going to have to go on a hunt for that one. I love french onion!Gosh I cant really remember what we got the little one for her first B-Day. One thing I remember is a big pool looking thing that had tons of balls in it. And maybe a Dora tent. Lots of coordination type toys and games. Have a great Monday :)~Justine

  5. Hooooray for clean eating- can't wait to read the article. I originally began a month of clean eating as a challenge and now eat clean 90%ish of the time!
