Not much new...

Today's CC post...

Another Tuesday

Yesterday was not a good day.  I think mostly because I was (still am) very tired from this weekend.  It did end well, with some time w/ hub. and some cheesecake pudding with graham crackers. 

Food today: B: Banana over Good Friends, milk; L: 3 corn tortillas, leftover rice & beans; Sn: Banana, Pretzels; D: grilled pizza

I got some latvah? bread - flatbread anyway, from trader joes to try for the grilled pizza tonight - they only had onion pitas.  Will use the rest of the canadian bacon from last week, pineapple, mushrooms, etc.  the bread is 120 cal for 1/2 of it (which is huge...)  It's thinner than a pita, so will have to be careful not to burn it :-)

I played a softball game last night.  We lost - they hit probably 10-15 grounders right up the middle.  Our pitcher has bad knees so they get past him pretty easy (great pitcher though!).  I have no excuse, on the other hand.  Played a short left center/rover, then 2nd base.  Missed probably 8 of them.  They beat us off of singles.  :-)  Oh well, we had fun.

I like Clairelaine's painting of the day thing - I'm going to add photos sometimes.  This one is from last June, at Cape Lookout State Park, near Tillamook, OR.


Today I'm going to step class.  Hopefully the normal teacher is back this week.  I got a new pair of workout shorts this weekend - don't usually wear shorts, but like to have 1 pair.  Maybe I'll check them out tonight.  They are from the Columbia employee store - mountain hardware.  I love shopping there - quality stuff for a LOT less money. :-) 

Guess that's about it for now.  Have a great Tuesday!

Been a while again...

Ok, so I nearly daily post on a website called Calorie Count, so I decided that I'm just going to copy it over to this as well, and see if anyone picks up on it. It will be a bit heavy on the what I ate stuff. Will try to get back into including recipes, maybe photos. Post from today...

What a weekend. Drove down to Portland Friday am, made it in good time - 4hrs almost exactly.

Friday activities: went to the Columbia Sportswear employee store, as is customary when we visit. Ahh the discount - 50-60% off is awesome! Dinner w/ my parents also included some friends from down there. Also met w/ our financial advisor.

Friday food: b: cereal probably w/ fruit (don't remember); l: half a reuben sandwich, fruit plate (1 banana, few strawberries, bit of cantelope, watermelon); d: really good german sausage (made in Portland by Zenner's Sausage Co), with some baked beans, pasta salad, fruit and chips, followed by dessert of strawberry-blueberry-rhubarb crisp (stuff from parent's yard) and vanilla ice cream.

Saturday activities: Took husband to a friends house (people we had dinner w/ Fri) to play D&D all weekend. Stopped at my favorite coffee shop, Insomnia Coffee Co, but have given up coffee for a bit - ended up w/ a racing heart last week, decided I'd had enough caffeine for a while... Got jasmine tea. My FAVORITE tea right now. As long as I can support them, it's good. Then my parents and I went to my grandparents for lunch - hadn't seen them for a while, so that was really good. Then went sailing for a couple hours on my parents Thistle. It's a very active sail, and we were on the Wilamette, which is a very...blustery sail. One of my friends came down after she got off work and we took her out for about half an hour also. She and I grabbed some burgers afterward, then I went back home w/ my parents.

Sat. Food: B: multigrain cheerios w/ a ton of freshly picked blueberries, 2 slices of pumpkin bread; L: a responsible sized piece of salmon, grandma's coleslaw, too much pumpkin bread and cookies; D: heart attack on a bun - Burger I got was a 1/2lb (locally raised/grassfed beef) burger, complege w/ canadian bacon and bacon bacon, bbq sauce and cheese. YUM. I cut it in half and actually only ate half! Ate all the fries. Had more crisp w/ ice cream when we got home.

Sunday Activities: Church, Krispy Kreme, Lunch, Bike Shopping, relaxing, train ride home.

Sunday Food: B: Same as Sat, no bread. :-); S: Apple fritter, 1/2 a strawberry milk at krispy kreme; L: 1 egg (steamed - kinda poached) 3 blueberry pancakes w/ syrup, ice lychee tea (grandpa's favorite...); snack: wheat thins, grapes, 8oz mojito; d: roast beef sandwich, string cheese, too many kettle chips, and a cookie I shouldn't have eatten.

All in all, it was a great weekend. The bike shopping was good - I think I'm definitely ready to try riding some now, and hopefully buy one in the next few weeks.

Softball game tonight at 8:45. Trying to decide if i want to work out before that...maybe bike ride?

Food for today: Breakfast: Good friends mixed w/ a bit of GoLean Crunch, bunch of blueberries, milk. Lunch: leftover Spanish rice w/ black beans, two corn tortillas, pretzels, snap peas. Dinner: mac & cheese from a box (um...we definitely have no food in the house...), possibly some hotdogs in the m&c.

Ok...enough :-) Have a great Monday!
