Remember Me?

Oh hi! 

I miss my blog!!!  I’ll spare you the gory details but work has been a wrench in my side for the past 3 weeks!!  Big Project = Late Nights (and weekends) = no cooking, no working out, and a sad face.  That’s on top of the freaking insane snow, but I know you’ve heard enough about that already.

Literally I’ve had TWO workouts in just under 3 weeks!!  WTF.  I really hate that.  And how is it, that sitting in front of a computer being sedentary for hours makes you SO much more tired than normal? 

Anyways, deadline is done and now hopefully I can get back to normal.  I’m almost scared for my next workout because my last one was rough. One of the two workouts was this past Sunday, kick boxing.  Usually I dominate that class, and its hard!  But on Sunday I found myself getting out of breath much too often and had to slow down at times…grrr.

Time to get back at it, full force!

While I don’t have any exciting culinary creations to share, I did snap a few photos during the past few weeks to share…

Working from home.  It’s rare I can do it, but getting up early on a Sunday was actually quite nice.IMG_7555

Was able to make breakfast, eat and work with lots of natural light!

Good For You French Toast was on the menu.


A little almond butter combo on one slice


Who needs a blanket when you can put this little heater on your lap


There was a particularly delicious bowl of oatmeal in my new Anthro bowl



The one time we DID cook dinner was Tacos!

Sous chef Brian…




Grass fed beef I had in the freezer 




Delicious beverage…


This is Goose Island’s Sofie!  I first tried this at the Belgian Beer Fest back in November and was so excited when I saw it in the store!

I mixed the ground beef with a can of black beans, chopped red peppers, and the taco seasoning.

Salad for me!

  • Romaine
  • Avocado
  • red onion
  • beef/bean/peppers
  • sprinkle of reduced fat cheese
  • salsa
  • light sour cream
  • Fresh cilantro
  • squeeze of lime juice


Deeee licious! IMG_7586 

And finally I leave you with my absolute FAVORITE veggie pizza.  I was non-stop today and actually missed lunch.  Thankfully had a few snacks to get through the day but Brian and I were getting home late so I decided to get a pizza & salad!

I give you the Farmer’s Garden from Kendra & Anthony’s


I love a good veggie pizza, but this one goes over the top!

Fresh broccoli, caramelized sweet onions, sautéed button mushrooms, marinated artichoke hearts, grilled asparagus, sautéed peppers, and a sprinkle of our cheese blend.

The caramelized onions and grilled asparagus really make it stand out!  Amazing.  Luckily its in a nearby town and somewhat on my way home from work!


Confession:  I was so hungry I ate a slice as soon as I got back in the car…  yeah. 


Now the plan is to relax, workout, and get back in the kitchen!! 

Oh yeah, and I finally ACTUALLY registered for the half-marathon in May….holy crap its really happening!!  Better get my run on!

TGTF (thank god tomorrow’s Friday!)
