Caught Up On Life

March 31, 2009

Well I haven’t gotten much school work done today, but I’ve been working nonstop since I left you last!

Tasks accomplished:

  1. Cleaned the bathroom
  2. Caught up on emails
  3. Mailed 2 packages
  4. Ordered more stamps
  5. Printed out Clinical notes
  6. RVSPed to a wedding
  7. Had a call with a possible freelance op ( :) )
  8. Did the dishes
  9. Folded 2 loads of laundry
  10. Sorted and put away the “don’t know what to do with this” pile on my washing machine
  11. Reorganized the hooks in the laundry room
  12. Rode to the ATM on my bike and deposited checks
  13. Rode to gym, workout
  14. Showered
  15. Made a new recipe
  16. Ate lunch
  17. Did the dishes again
  18. Blogged!

So now I feel super organized and ready to move onward with my work.

But first  – this lunch was awesome!! I didn’t get back from the gym until 1:30 and was pretty hungry, but I am so glad I took the 10 extra minutes to make this because it rocked! :frog:


I made what I am calling Fiesta Broccoli Dip (<—recipe) that is inspired by Heather’s Broc Guac. Somebody ate all the avocado, so I didn’t have much to work with, but I had lots of peppers, so I made it a chunky mix instead. Cilantro is the key ingredient!



I couldn’t decide between a more-filling GH bun or the more-fun Food Should Taste Good multigrain flax chips, so I had both! The Fietsta Spread was deposited on both of these delivery carbs – 



And lastly, a mango and some blackberries!! I actually got too full to finish this so I am saving it for a snack.



Off to do important things!! :angel4:

5 life coach jen March 31, 2009 at 2:31 pm

You reorganized the hooks in your bathroom? I would pay for half of your organizational skills!


6 Rose March 31, 2009 at 2:35 pm

OMG, you got that many things done today? So jealous! You’re super woman :)


7 Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) March 31, 2009 at 2:41 pm

Gotta love productivity! I need to channel that and get some work done over here! Lunch looks yummers.


8 Leah @ Simply Fabulous Now March 31, 2009 at 2:45 pm

Wow, quite the To-Do list you’ve accomplished so far!

Enjoy the rest of your day!


9 Lisa March 31, 2009 at 2:48 pm

Broc guac – what a fantastic idea!


10 megan March 31, 2009 at 2:49 pm

Your organization skills impress me! I always have big plans to get a lot done, but after work I just feel so lazy and end up reading/cooking/hanging out with my husband instead. :)


11 Sara March 31, 2009 at 2:51 pm

That broc/guac looks great! What a delicious looking lunch!


12 Betsy March 31, 2009 at 2:51 pm

I can’t even begin to compete with that list… but working full time doesn’t lend many extra minutes or energy to do so! I wish I had your schedule! :)


13 Elizabeth March 31, 2009 at 2:51 pm

Can’t wait to try that broccoli dip – yum! Congrats on getting so much accomplished on a day off…. wish I could say the same! LOL


14 Shannon (The Daily Balance) March 31, 2009 at 2:54 pm

nice work on crossing things off your list! Isn’t it an amazing feeling?

That broccoli dip looks delish! I’m definitely going to be trying this!!


15 sue March 31, 2009 at 2:55 pm

wow you’re such a busy bee! off your list, i can say i’ve completed #16 :) and i’m pretty happy with just that. haha


16 Marisa (trim the fat) March 31, 2009 at 2:55 pm

So interesting -I’ll have to try that broc dip:)


17 Marissa March 31, 2009 at 2:58 pm

Yum!! Broc makes everything better :)


18 zestycook March 31, 2009 at 3:00 pm

Kath, I feel like I did nothing compared to you. Lunch looks great :)



19 Ashley March 31, 2009 at 3:08 pm

That dip looks awesome!


20 Jennifer March 31, 2009 at 3:09 pm

It so funny, I can do the same thing. I can be a super procrastinator OR have days like yours, where you get a ton of stuff done.

I like the feeling of accomplishment of getting a lot of stuff done.

I needed to clean “my side of the bedroom” because I am the messier one between me and my hubby and I’m sure it drives him crazy that there is always a ton of stuff on the floor next to my dresser, tons of stuff on my dresser. I tackled that yesterday and in about an hour it looked fantastic! I had been thinking about doing it for son long and once I got started it wasn’t so bad! Now, my dresser is neat, nothing on the floor, I bought a cute rug and tiny lamp for my dresser. I felt a huge weight off of me!

Here’s to a continued successful day Kath!


21 Hallie March 31, 2009 at 3:16 pm

That guac/dip recipe is SO creative! I’m going to try that soon as I’m just not incorporating avocado into my diet. I didn’t like it for the longest time (and living in avocado country, this was quite the sin) but I’m coming around. It’s so good for you and a great way to add healthy, filling fat to a meal! I can only handle it in small doses, so the dip sounds PERFECT to me :-)


22 brandi March 31, 2009 at 3:17 pm

looks great, but i would need more of that avocado! i gotta have a good amount of protein in my meals :)


23 rhodeygirl (sabrina) March 31, 2009 at 3:20 pm

looks great kath!

(the completed to do list AND the new lunch!)


24 Kerri March 31, 2009 at 3:22 pm

That salad looks so colorful!


25 Alicia March 31, 2009 at 3:28 pm

That broc dip looks amazing… a perfect way to use up the bag I have in the fridge.

I am also amazed that you got all of the to-do list done in the morning… it takes me days to finish the simplest of tasks


26 Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) March 31, 2009 at 3:34 pm

Wow Kath, you got a ton of stuff done before lunch. I love crossing things off my to-do list, especially early in the day.

I just looked at your recipe, and I must try your version soon. I bet the yogurt made it so creamy, and I agree, cilantro is definitely key.

Thanks again for the shout-out. :)


27 Tyler (Raspberry Runner) March 31, 2009 at 3:39 pm

wow, way to be productive! can’t believe you had time to do all that AND come up with a fabulous lunch :)


28 Kiersten March 31, 2009 at 3:40 pm

You did more in those few hours than I have done my entire day so far!

I love the picture of the mango and blackberries. It’s simple, yet so pretty.


29 Heather March 31, 2009 at 4:14 pm

Way to get things done!! 😀 Bet it feels good to have all that accomplished!

What a YUMMY lunch!! That fruit looks so good, it could be fake!


30 Natalie March 31, 2009 at 4:15 pm

I wish I could get all that stuff done!

Your dip looks great :)


31 Emily March 31, 2009 at 4:24 pm


15 to-dos crossed off before lunch is ridiculously impressive! I like to go to the gym first thing in the morning so if I can do that and take my little sis to school I’m nomally home at noon. THEN my day can begin. Hats off to you!

And I just have to say that the photography in this post looks incredible. Really, really nice. The shot of the mangos and blackberries made me want to lick the screen. Did you get a new camera?

Have a great rest of your day!

With Love,



32 KatieTX March 31, 2009 at 4:50 pm

I am glad I am not the only one who bikes to the ATM!! I always feel a little silly! Great new recipe idea!


33 K March 31, 2009 at 4:53 pm

You were certainly Miss Productive this morning! Way to go!! Love the dip :)


34 Sarah (lovINmytummy) March 31, 2009 at 5:00 pm

You should try making edamole! Like broc guac, but more protein!


35 Bec March 31, 2009 at 5:20 pm

36 Niki March 31, 2009 at 5:27 pm

Wow! You got a lot accomplished today! Awesome job! Your lunch looked great!!


37 Lisa D March 31, 2009 at 5:40 pm

That dip looks awesome. and your to-do list accomplishments make me feel like a bum! that mango also looks perfect! yum


38 Making Love In The Kitchen March 31, 2009 at 5:52 pm

The broc guac looks amazing. I have never thought of that combination before. Adding to the list for sure.


39 haya (living and learning) March 31, 2009 at 6:02 pm

i adore that feeling of super accomplishment. it is almost motivation enough for me to keep plugging away at things even when i don’t really feel like it. satisfying.

that guac looks yum! i think you win for “eating the rainbow”


40 The Duo Dishes March 31, 2009 at 6:07 pm

Yes to the dip on those chips! That broccoli dip would be so tasty.


41 Meg March 31, 2009 at 6:21 pm

You sure got a lot accomplished today!

That dip looks super delicious!


42 Kath March 31, 2009 at 6:52 pm

Emily ,
I got a new camera in January? But I think I messed up the settings for a few days and they are back to normal. Perhaps that’s it? Thanks!

Sarah (lovINmytummy),
Oo that does look good!



43 Meaghen March 31, 2009 at 7:14 pm

The mango and blackberries look so good together!


44 Kori March 31, 2009 at 7:22 pm

“10. Sorted and put away the “don’t know what to do with this” pile on my washing machine”

And I thought I was the only one who had this kind of pile! hahaha! I’m jealous of your accomplishments Kath and that beautiful bowl full of green for lunch!


45 Susan March 31, 2009 at 7:43 pm

“delivery carbs” – love it!! So true!

That’s quite the list!! I find I get tons more stuff done when I should be doing school work instead 😛


46 Michelle Hisae March 31, 2009 at 8:35 pm

Wow you got so much done! I love those days!

I just signed up for Todoist, and I can’t wait to try it! April is going to be a “get organized/streamlining” month, so I’m so excited to use this and get started!


47 Kara March 31, 2009 at 8:51 pm

sometimes i like to organize everything before i start doing my school work… it makes me feel more focused… or it’s just a really good way to procrastinate :)


48 healthy ahsley April 1, 2009 at 9:03 am

This lunch looks perfect! I love the mango/blackberries combo!
