Never a minute spent at home

I’m so ready for Christmas right now.


Saturday morning I headed to the gym before work where I did 45 minutes on the elliptical. I haven’t used an elliptical in a while so it was nice. I love them! I never snapped a pic of breakfast but I ate it in the car between the gym and work. Larabar + string cheese. I worked from 9-3 and don’t even remember what I had for lunch! The exciting part happens after work though. I headed up to my first blogger meet-up!!! Heather invited me to the CDNY Eat Drink Blog Cookie Swap. Except that it was kind of last minute and I didn’t have time to make cookies or a dish to bring up for dinner. I felt bad for not bringing any cookies so I didn’t take any home but I took a bunch of pictures of all the goods!













Heather was such a great hostess and I has so much fun meeting other bloggers! Hopefully there will be another meet-up while I’m home for winter break. :)


Back to the good old usual breakfast:



Then church. When I got home I started making some Bean and Barley soup to have for the rest of the week. It wasn’t ready for lunch though, sadly. Instead:


DSC01521 Chia bread w/ Teddie unsalted p.b. and cinnamon

DSC01522 Plain 0% Chobani w/ ground flaxseed, blueberries, and strawberries

I wasn’t home for long before I was once again out the door. I swear lately all I do at home is sleep! I headed down to my friend Eva’s to spend the afternoon with her since I hadn’t seen her in forever. We watched Rudolph and Santa Claus is Coming to Town and drank tea. Her parent’s also made a delicious dinner: Roast chicken, sweet potato, acorn squash, zucchini, and her dad’s creation: greek enchilada (= awesome!)



Oh how the weekend passes so quickly. Well obviously when you work on Saturdays, then the weekend isn’t really a weekend. I was so tired from all this driving around (both the blogger meet-up and Eva’s house are over an hour drive for me). So this morning I forced myself out of bed (slowly) and headed to the gym. I ended up getting there a half hour after I planned to and thus was a half hour “late” for work. I say late in quotations because I don’t really have to be there at 9 but I like to be. My schedule is pretty flexible which is great!

I did 45 minutes on the elliptical again. And forgot to take a picture of breakfast, again. This time it was a banana and a slice of chia bread. Lunch also went unpictured but was a bowl of Bean and Barley soup, a string cheese, and a bunch of strawberries. Today was a pretty good day, uneventful, which at this point I was glad for.

I had to inhale dinner in about 10 minutes when I got home. Egglplant parm and salad.



Then once again I was out! This time for a couple hours of church choir practice. It was long. Too long. I basically can’t function at this point I’m so tired. To make matters worse tomorrow is the long day at work. We are open until 7 instead of 5:30 so I will be working a 10 hour day. I think I need some gel insoles for my shoes because standing all day is killer on my feet!

Alright I’m done whining. Goodnight!


  1. Glad I got to see you again! We should meet up for coffee soon while you're still in town!

  2. Oooh, it looks like there were lots of yummy eats at the blogger meet-up! I'm especially intrigued with that chocolate chip cookie dough dip...Do you know what's in it?

    Your eggplant parm looks delicious. :-)
