Super Snacky!

First of all...you guys are so great! Thanks for the supportive running comments...I know it will get better once I can get outside for my runs more often. It's just this cold weather combined with SO much snow...I'm not that hardcore yet :) I also very much realize that it's also very much a mental thing...there are sometimes I'll be running and it's not that my legs are tired or I'm out of breath, I just don't like the feeling and want to stop...I need that to go away!

I decided to not do all running at the gym last night and thank goodness because I forgot part of my HRM at home and left my ipod in the car!! So I did 25min on the step mill with a magazine and then decided to just bust out a mile on the treadmill afterward. Then did I hit up a few nautilus machines which I haven't done in quite a while.

Rewind to Breakfast yesterday

It was a chilly morning so I wanted warm comforting Oats!The Mix:
  • 1/3 cup of oats, water, and milk
  • salt
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp pumpkin butter
  • granola (found a little left of my last batch...need to make more ASAP)
  • candied pecans, chopped
  • golden raisins
  • 3 choc. chips, 3 PB chips
  • spoon of White choc. PB!
Delicious as usualLunch was a re-make of Monday's dinner...and is also pretty much what I packed for today too!
  • TJ's Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup
  • Frozen veggies added to soup: green beans, peas, corn
  • WW Sandwich Thin
  • 1/2 of sandwich with Honey Maple Turkey, American Cheese, Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 with ham, sopresatta, American cheese, Dijon
  • Roasted Gorgonzola cracker!!
After my gym trip I was hankering for some Brenner (?) Breakfast for Dinner!

Made a scramble with:
  • 1 egg, 2 egg whites
  • zucchini
  • red onion
  • red pepper
  • spinach
  • American Cheese
  • ham
With a side of TJ's Cinnamon Raisin British Muffin...half with Smart Balance, half with lite cream cheese!Scrumptious!!

Random new snack to try:Picked up at TJ's...I figure since I love gummi bears/sour patch kids so much these would be a good option!

Wedding Planning + Food = Super Happy Bridget!!

We have another Tasting tonight!! We had a couple before when we were trying to decide on a caterer. Now that we have our caterer, we are having a second tasting to finalize the menu options.

I want to have a fish and chicken dish as the options. I decided to forgo beef because its more $$ and more people will pick it...where as the fish may be just as $$ but not as many will choose it. I also want to make sure the chicken dish is Awesome...not bland unexciting chicken. So I sent my caterer a long email of ideas...you can only imagine how my mind was racing with ideas. So she's going to take all the info, talk to the chefs and surprise us tonight!

Can't wait to post about it later :) Plus last time we had so much food we brought home lots of leftover...mmmm!

  1. I love Brenner! I haven't had it in awhile though.

    About your question to me about running - When I run I don't take walking breaks. If I stopped I wouldn't start again!

  2. Hey girl! Glad you got a nice workout despite not having your ipod (I HATE when I forget my ipod!). Hooray for breakfast for dinner :) Good choices for the wedding. We did do steak and chicken and most people picked steak. I had a giant salad and french fries! I had given up french fries for a year before the wedding and decided it would be nice to have them on the night of our wedding.

  4. Have fun tasting food tonight!! Hope it's all delicious :)

    I didn't get to comment on your post about running the other day, but I think it's so hard to get into running when it's cold and you are limited to the treadmill. Be patient until the spring when you can get in some awesome outdoor runs!

  5. I totally agree about the chicken and fish deal!! I dunno WHAT i would choose b/c I love both, but I would probably go with fish cuz it's more of a treat! A lot of people do steer clear of fish though so I'm sure you'll have a nice even split, good luck can't wait to hear.
