Blah, blah, blah

I'm not a big fan of Tuesday, today was just blah. I don't mind Mondays because for some reason I get so many things done that I didn't get to over the weekend. When Tuesday comes, I don't seem to have any ambition left...I know, weirdo! lol It's just an in between day with no weekend in sight, I guess!

Today for breakfast I made a little concoction of Chocolate-Peanut Butter-Banana Oatmeal on the stove with some water and a little milk. After it was done cooking I added some cinnamon, cocoa powder, sliced banana, a nice big scoop of Barney butter and chia seeds. It was quite delicious  and hit the spot for fueling up before my run.

After my run I had a handful of walnuts and water before hitting the shower. My run went well, it was a beautiful day! I think the Fall is going to be my favorite season for running, the cool, clear and crisp mornings are so refreshing!

For lunch I had some leftover chowder, it was so much better than last night!! Yum!!! :D

For dinner I decided to try this new dinner packet from Good Earth, Mediterranean Chicken

They were on sale last week for $2.99 and I had a $1.00 coupon so I thought what the heck if it's not good it was only $1.99 down the drain! The packet included whole wheat angel hair pasta, seasoned whole wheat flour, cream sauce with olive oil and a Mediterranean seasoning with tomatoes. All you have to do is add your chicken and I always have that in my freezer, just dredge the chicken in the flour and cook in a little bit of olive oil while the pasta is cooking. Once the chicken is done you add water, milk and the cream sauce and simmer for 8 minutes. Then add the pasta to the pan and serve.

It was good, for a packaged dinner. Very flavorful and the seasoning on the chicken was perfect! For the price, ease of use and quality of ingredients, it is something I may go back to on night where I don't have a lot of time.

Did you know that The Biggest Loser Season 10 premieres one week from tonight?  Can't wait!! All the contestants inspire me in some way to want to be a better, healthier person. If they can do it so can I, although Jillian would make me cry at the drop of a hat...just sayin' ;)



  1. So glad to hear you had a good run. I really am looking forward to hearing about your progress. We had some friends who did that program and ran their 1st 5K about 3 wks ago and beat their expected times by at least 3 minutes.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my site! I am excited for BL next week too :)

  3. Glad to hear your runs are going well. Fall is definitely better than summer for running. I know I feel tons better on these cool mornings!
