Springs rolls for lunch, all week long.  I had to get my spring in someway....since that bitch Mother Nature kept denying me.

And that's today.

The tri-training is officially underway.  Swimming, biking, running.  A little something almost every day.  Feeling pretty good these days.  Taking some vitamins has increased my energy level (as has a few appearances by the sun), food choices have been good, even lost a few pounds.  Most importantly, I am feeling better on the inside.  Doing my best to throw more self love my way, be kinder to myself and remind myself that I'm actually pretty ok.  And that's today.

Happy Chickens

Just because I eat them, doesn't mean I don't want them to have a happy life beforehand.

Never before noticed this rating system.

My lunches this week are a two, but I'd like to find some fives to enjoy.

Fresh from my swim workout, I take the extra time today to sit and enjoy my breakfast on this glorious morning rather than wolf it down in the car.  And that's today.

Back Up Plan

The breakfast I brought with me to work had spoiled.  So instead of going to the McDonalds across the street for a quick fix, I drove to the nearest market for Kashi cereal and almond milk.  And that's today.

5 Dollars Worth of Spinach

This is what 5 dollars worth of spinach looks like.
Washing spinach in my kitchen sink.
Eating organic ain't cheap, but I hope that someday, organic will be the norm and the prices won't be so high. A girl can dream.

Also, a 3 mile run this morning and a 2 mile walk in the sunshine at lunch. And that's today.

Focal Point

I need a focal point.  A goal to works towards.  Something to get me going again.  And so, this weekend, I committed to doing a Sprint-Tri.  And the training program begins soon.  Woot!  Since I've done one before,  I'm not terrified, I'm actually really excited.  And that's today. 

Dinner at Taste of Thailand
Lunches for the week, Greek chicken.

The trip to the co-op could have gone horribly wrong.  He didn't really want to be there, I was a little bit crabby.  I was trying to calmly make my point, to explain why I was asking to spend more money on groceries we could get cheaper somewhere else.  He was in turn trying to make his point and we were both trying not to be assholes to each other, especially in public.  In the end, we compromised.  The meatloaf was made of organic chicken and turkey.  He added both fresh organic vegetables and frozen organic vegetables instead of the can of veg-all he initially proposed.  Because of all his efforts, I agreed that he could wrap the meatloaf in bacon for the grilling/smoking process.  Not only that, but he used brown rice pasta in the macaroni and cheese.  It might not have been pretty getting there, but in the end, it was success.  And I was really, really happy!!!!  And that was yesterday.
