Monday Monday

Well, it's my last furlough day till May so I'm just lazing about this morning watching the Today Show. That's one of the things that I hate most about going to work- that I can't watch every day.

I went to the grocery store yesterday and planned some meals for the week. I'll be on vacation in 3 weeks and I always wait till the last minute before I freak out and have to clean myself up in very little time. For the first time in, maybe forever, I bought 90% of my items on the outside perimeter of the store.

Some produce included in my purchases:
Mandarin Orange Cuties
Vine Tomatoes
Grape Tomatoes

I refuse to let any go to waste so yes, I'll be cooking with Leeks this week. I've never had a leek. I don't even know what it tastes like. But I have a BLT (Bacon Leek Tomato) Pasta recipe I wanted to try so I've got to figure out what to do with the other 2 leeks. I'll also be trying out some turkey burgers with some fresh ground turkey I bought. Lunch packing for tomorrow-Friday will consist of sandwichs, carrots, fruit, pretzels.

Well, it's almost 9 so I'm off to eat a quick breakfast and then take a walk/run around the block. (it's about 3/4 a mile I think but it has the most awful 2 hills you've seen in your life. They suck so bad that I'm sucking wind within the first 20 feet of running up them.)

Lets just hope I don't pass out and then get sunburned this early in the morning.

That would be bad.

UPDATE: Slight change in plans. I decided to let Jillian Michaels kick my @ss for 30 minutes instead of running. 30 day shred day 1 complete. I must go buy some smaller weights. How embarrassing that I can't use my lightest 8 lb weights for more than 4 reps without crying and setting them back on the ground so I can just lift air instead.

Breakfast: 1 egg omelet with a leetle bit of cheddar cheese (I'll try tomato and leek tomorrow Liz!) and 2 mandarin orange cuties- I love those things! oh and a cup of milk.

Too bad all I want is a bag of chips and a chocolate bar. But I refuse. It's only 3 weeks.


  1. Turkey burgs are delicious! I use the 99% fat free ground turkey, add in some seasoning (i use all seasoning mix) and my trick, a little sprinkle of the Parmesan shake cheese. i don't eat any ground beef anymore, only turkey and it's delicious!

  2. I mostly use leeks for soups, but they can be substituted in many recipe's that call for onions... they're a more subtle onion flavor. How about a tomato leek omelet?
