A whole new blogger world

Happy Tuesday!

Not sure where Monday went, but sure glad it’s already Tuesday! This past weekend was very productive. I was in DE and we ran 14 miles plus and did some free comcast exercising, got some new jeans, cleaned house, had some good meals, and enjoyed a good movie. I finally saw Gran Torino, very good movie!

So, somehow I stumbled upon this exciting new world of blogs that are all about being active and eating/living healthy. Many seem to be young professional woman, like myself, and they post pictures of their daily meals, write about their workouts, new recipes to try, and just general life happenings. I’m loving all the inspiration! So far I’ve been inspired to rekindle my love of oatmeal with all kinds of easy simple ways to spice up my breakfast and get in some key nutrients. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day after all! I’m also loving all the different creations many are making with yogurt. I love yogurt, but I’m sort of traditional in just eating out of the plastic container. Sometimes I add granola, but I have so many new ideas to really learn to love yogurt, there seem to be all kinds of cool creations one can make.

Now, I’m not sure if I will take pictures of all my meals, although I love the idea of a picture food journal. I may post pictures of super awesome meals I’ve created every now and then and of course any good recipes I come across. I may even be inspired to begin my picture a day again. Who knows, but I love the new found inspiration!


Guess What?

It’s still raining! We have been hit with so many storms the past few days (well, maybe just today, but in total, it’s rained a lot the past few months), there is no end in sight! I did catch a break between storms this evening and had a pleasant walk home. Trying to avoid puddles and streams of water was almost like a fun little game. I saw some cute rain boots on sale a few months back, I’m really kicking myself for not buying them. At the time I thought it was an impulse buy, who knew they would actually be quite handy right about now. Note to self, put rain boots on list of things to purchase, clearly the DC area has become a rain forest, rain boots would no longer be considered an impulse buy.

It’s Tuesday, but it already seems like the longest week. I had a great weekend hanging out with Dave. We went to check out a local winery, discovered a few statues in DC, saw lions, ran from lions (not really, but the way I was running this weekend, I would have been considered ‘fast food’ to a lion), and had some good grub.

I have a weird red spot on my head, which I got checked out yesterday and walked out of the doctors office with two stitches. They did a biopsy to figure out whats going on exactly, I’ve had it for a few months now. If this was high school, I would be so embarrassed because I’ve had to wear a small bandage on my forehead (to protect the stitches). Thank goodness in 10 years, I have grown up, it doesn’t bother me at all, in fact I wish I had a hot pink band-aid I could be sporting (because let’s face it (ha) if you’ve got to wear one on your face, you might as well make a statement).

Oh yeah, and I’m officially debt free – made my last car payment on Friday! A car payment didn’t necessarily seem like debt to me as it just seemed like one of my regular monthly bills, but it is nice knowing I’ll have some extra change in my pocket! Time to save up for my cowboy boots 🙂
