How do you boil an egg? Please? First my eats of the day:
I’ve got a lot on my mind these days. Getting married! yay! Finding an apartment with Bill! Saving money to pay for said wedding and apartment! Looking good, real good, for the big day! Many more things (job? real estate? marathon?) but I won’t bore you with the details.
Valentine’s Day flowers still blooming, I’ve been pruning them too to keep ’em looking lively :-)
Anyways, March is the month of saving – money and calories. Here are my eats for the day:
Salad mix with tuna fish, feta, and corn… the combo of feta and corn was really good! Tuna, not so much.
Snack: Nature’s Valley Bar Peanut Butter Bar… not a fan, I left my trailmix in the car this morning so it was the best our vending machine could offer.
Dinner: Asian turkey meatball things? With rice and shredded carrots. I can’t remember what exactly was in the meatballs, but they had a chewy tang that was delish! An apple on the side, and a test of one of the hardboiled eggs I cooked up for the week. I made a small bowl of the mix above and might just take an extra meatball for lunch tomorrow.
Not pictured: slice of bread with tbs of peanut butter. I have this before I walk out the door in the morning. It’s probably too much to have each morning, but I feel like I need to have something in my stomach before I get on my commuter rail. Any suggestions?
Workout today: 30 minutes on the elliptical (blah) I did 15 minutes worth of 15 sec super hard and 45 secs more catch up at level 12. I worked up a sweat but it wasn’t what I was hoping for today.
On my kindle right now: Smart Women Finish Rich. I feel like my brain is on overload, but I kind of like it.
Things I’m working on:
- blogging more….
- getting rid of this cold
- getting up in time for the gym in the morning
- making decisions
- keeping perspective
- defining my goals and my values
- getting in shape for my marathon!
Have a lovely weekend!
Like “L”‘s much? Yesterday my friend and I went to Lowell. I had gone over Thanksgiving on a hot chocolate hunt and was impressed by the historical architecture and artsy vibe of the downtown area. Huge textile mills, cobblestone streets and old churches are pretty cool to me!
We went to lunch at Life Alive. I had heard of this place at my Kickboxing class and put at the top of my list, and a few months later I found an excuse and a willing friend to go with me. Lowell itself was absolutely deserted. Not a soul around. It appeared, however, that everyone in the town was in this particular restaurant though! We got the last available table and it was awesome. I ordered their Suri Poet Salad — apples, craisins, cashews, red-lentil hummus, and greens in some kind of vinaigrette dressing. (Also 5 chocolate covered almonds to share for dessert).
This is very sadly, my ONLY picture from our trip. I actually used my Mac to take a picture of the meal, because I left my camera at home. The best camera is the camera you have on you right?!
Go to Life Alive!
Many of you have already heard about the new Anthropologie wedding shop — BHLDN (beholden). oh.my.god. I love it all! Besides from the gorgeous dresses….(which will not be pictured here in detail! ;-)) They have bridesmaid dresses and accessories.
There is also an “explore” feature. Where you answer 5 questions and they peg you as a certain type of bride. Mine was Lady with a Twist. Maybe I’m lovestruck, but I kind of think that is straight on for me.
Updates: Bill is within an hour away in approx 36 hours. awesome.
Operation Get in Shape: 2 runs so far this week, and they felt great! Tomorrow I need to get my jumping in ;-)
