I JUST learned how to do this:


Did it seriously take me that long to learn how to format it? (Talking like months of blog envy of others!) I had to do a Google search. Is this common knowledge, and I am just supremely out of the loop?!

Sad day, people.

Well, not really that sad because I learned how to do it!! Whoo! Expect to see an egregious excess a bit more of it in future posts, because it's brilliant and cracks me up every single time I read about it on other blogs!

I can't believe I just spent that much time on that topic! :) I obviously need to get a life am easily amused.

What's one thing you have learned recently? No matter how seemingly trivial, it'll be way cooler than mine...so let me know!

And now for some lovely eats of the past few days!

My most blog worthy meal:

-sauteed veggies (I bought a HUGE bag of spinach from Costco, which is why you'll see a lot of spinach in the next few days!)
-scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese
-leftover eggplant salad from WF
-Red Wine!! :)

This meal is quite similar...just add avocado, ketchup and crackers.

And yet another one: (I tend to go through phases of eating a certain food/meals frequently. It has nothing to do with ED behaviors; really I'm just lazy and in this case, the sauteed veggies and eggs meals fulfills: cheap, easy, healthy and delicious!)

One night this week I treated myself to a beer that I was looking forward to:

It was ONE OF THE BEST BEERS I'VE EVER HAD! So delicious! I wish I could buy it around me! :( However, I am now making it a goal to try various other cherry beers in hopes of finding a good substitute. It's a reeeally tough mission, but someone's got to do it and I accept! ;)

Moving forward--here's a very typical snack:

(Greek yogurt, Fiber One, almond butter, banana)

and another one:

(apple and AB)

Also, a VERY exciting (to me) breakfast:

(Up close and personal: oats, Greek yogurt, strawberries, AB, and trail mix...and the slice of toast from above is spelt bread with AB)

And another semi-exciting breakfast. (Well not at all, but I get extremely excited about ANY breakfast! It + coffee is why I get out of bed!)

Lastly, I had an Emergen-C packet in their new tropical flavor, which I LOVED! In general, I am a HUGE fan of their products, because they taste great and are so convenient, while providing many nutrients!


I went grocery shopping and came back with the following:

-organic tomatoes (on sale!)
-yellow squash
-butternut squash
-organic baby carrots
-frozen broccoli
-whole grain chocolate cookies and spelt crackers (both clearanced at WF--otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought them due to cost)

And now, I'm heading to bed. I'm REALLY trying to get to bed earlier. Usually I don't sleep until 1 or 2am, but I'm really trying to change that and my goal is to be in bed by midnight most nights if/when I can.)

What time do you go to sleep?

Good night!


  1. I'm trying to get more sleep, too. I'm shooting for at least 7 hrs. this semester (fingers crossed). But that means I have to be in bed by 10 pm!

  2. Do you really want to know? Around 2 am and I am up by 9:30!!! Yay, for learning something new :)

  3. i'm REALLY trying to get to bed earlier, too, but I just can't seem to do it fast enough. I'm getting to bed earlier about 30 mins per day. Progress, at least. I used to go to bed about 4 am. Now, I'm at about 2 am.

    I learned that raw food can actually be quite good. Not as good as cooked food, but it's ok. Will be reviewing raw products sometime soon. :-)

  4. just found your blog. that beer looks amazing, I've never had it! have a good weekend Lisa!

  5. wow 1 or 2 am...I can' even remember what those hours look like!

    I wanted to tell you that 5.8 to 6.2 is not slow!! You are a totally normal runner and should feel very comfortable running with any one!

  6. Yum all your eats look wonderful.
    I've been sleeping great lately, I usually go to bed around 11:00-12:00 and sleep till 6:00ish. I find I need about 6 or 7 hours sleep.
