Friday the 13th, Let’s Celebrate Kurt Warner!

oooo spooky it’s Friday the 13, I am gonna make it Kurt Warner day!!!! Just in case you didn’t know, his jersey number is 13!

I can’t believe all the stinky clothes out there, that need some WIN! Keep the entries coming their making me laugh. I also love the workout tips I am getting, I plan on making a list of them to put together on a post to come!

Yesterday was very interesting. Hubby and I had a meeting to go to in Long Beach, so after the meeting we hit up some lunch together. I don’t remember the last time hubby and I had a lunch date! We didn’t have a date night this week( due to me having lab), so this worked out perfect. We were right next to the South Coast Plaza, the nicest mall ever, so we went inside to find a place to eat. We decided on Wolfgang Puck’s Cafe….ooo yummy!

I ordered the Warm Mediterranean Veggie Melt Sandwich:


I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a out to eat meal, as much as I did this one. I haven’t had this much bread in FOREVER! It was so good, the bread was like pizza crust covered in herbs,olive oil, and parmesan sprinkles.

The sandwich/wrap had warm red peppers,zucchini,mushrooms,sun dried tomatoes,and goat cheese melted inside. I could have just eaten half, but I thought what the heck, if I am going to enjoy this, I better enjoy it all! Thank you WOLFGANG PUCK! I think I shall make this on a pizza soon! photo

Hubby had a lucky break, he ordered a pepperoni pizza and they said it was supposed to be bigger, so they sent him home with another one in a to go box!!!


I had to go to work after lunch, and we got stuck in some major OC traffic! I didn’t end up getting to work until 4pm and I am usually off at 5:15pm, so I went in there and baked with the kids for our Valentines day party, and then was off before I knew it!

I went to AKB last night and tried to work off that heavy lunch, I think my arms were a lot more sore this time, because I was punching like a mad women! LOL…I went to Jamba Juice after class, I thankfully had a gift card:) I got a Z Bar, and a light Strawberry Nirvana smoothie to take to Thursday night group with me.

Group was awesome, I am so loving this book LOVE AND RESPECT. It keeps teaching me more and more about myself, and ways that I respond in certain situations. If you ever want truly love your husbands more then you could have ever imagined pick up this book, it can only better even the best of marriages!!!!

I had snack duty for group and decided to make Tina’s Banana Oatmeal Chip Cookies, I am known as the “Healthy One” at group, so I had to rise to the occasion. I also didn’t want to spend a lot of money, and I happened to have all the ingredients on hand. Love how easy they were to make!


TINA, these were amazing! Everyone ate them up so fast, hubby didn’t even get to try one. They insisted I get there hands in the photo.



Can you believe I am in week 7 of my Boston Training! I can’t, that means I am half way there!!!  I was supposed to have today off of running but since I didn’t run yesterday I had to run my 5 mile tempo run today. It took everything in me to get all layered up and out of the house, but I did it! The first few miles were cold and windy and I was having negative thoughts, then I thought of all of you in the Midwest who are freezing your tushes off, and laughed at my 39 degree weather!


Total Miles: 6.15
Time: 49:30
Tempo Average Pace: 5 miles at 7:41
Average Total pace: 8:03
calories burned: 700( estimated)

I have a 15 mile run planned for Sunday, but I hear it is supposed to rain. I could still run in the rain, but is that smart? I mean it’s not as cold as it is in Wisconsin, but is it smart to rain when your soaking wet? hmmmmm…I ll have to check on this.

Tonight I planned a girls movie night with my friends. We are going to see “He’s Just Not that Into You”, it should be cute. Were stopping by Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf before to get some energy, it’s a later movie. I get off at 4pm today so my plan is to come home and cook dinner for hubby and I before the movie.


I need some inspiration tonight for dinner, I don’t want to buy anything to make, we have already spent our grocery budget for the week. Here is what I got. Tofu, lots of veggies, all startches(pasta, rice,bread), turkey meat, and fruit. Any ideas!!!! Feel free to shoot me an email with a recipe, I promise to feature it on my blog:)!!!!

Alright folks I am out of here, need to make breakfast, oatmeal sounds divine:) I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and share love with all that you come across. I am not the biggest Valentines day fan, I think LOVE is something that should be a daily thing, not reserved for just one day. But it is a sweet holiday. I guess I better live it up since hubby and I don’t have kids yet:) Maybe I should at least get hubby a card! Hope he doesn’t read this.
