Fast Forward

November 10, 2008

My life is on fast forward this morning! I’ve been doing a million things a minute!!!

For example, I have 4 minutes to type this before I have to leave for Winthrop.

After a nice gym session (when I didn’t realize how late I was making myself), I quickly showered while the husband made us lunch. (He’s good, isn’t he!?)


Ham sandwiches on GH honey wheat with goat cheese (the hard kind) –




Carrots with PB


And a yogurt, pom + walnut cup :)



If I’m the Queen of Oats, he’s the King of Bread! He had a bread sandwich plus bread on the side! We’ve got 4 loaves in the house right now so we have to eat that over more expensive things.


OK, I am now officially 15 minutes late for lab and still have a 30 minute commute. Whoops!!!!! And my hair is wet!!

5 Maggie November 10, 2008 at 1:53 pm

Cool header!

Bobby has bread with everything too. He’s a carb addict :)


6 polly November 10, 2008 at 1:56 pm

hi Kath, love the header too!

Did I tell you that my hubby worked for THE MILL bread company for a while as a baker? He worked his buns OFF during that time. I wondered if Matt has been upping his food intake, as I’m sure he’s working out by just “working!” My hub lost quite a bit of weight in that time, he was soo skinny and he ate a TON of fresh bread and pb! 😉 Keep on eatin’ that bread, Matt!


7 zestycook November 10, 2008 at 1:57 pm

lunch looks great Kath – Hurry to the lab! Sharp pic Matt!



8 Erica November 10, 2008 at 1:57 pm

thats great that the husband made you lunch! I could eat soooooo much bread :) I wish there was a high carb diet haha


9 Miss Tiffie November 10, 2008 at 2:01 pm

10 Alison November 10, 2008 at 2:02 pm

I just watched your and Jenna’s video- what fun! Now can we please get Ann’s recipe for the pumpkin chocolate bars??


11 rhodeygirl November 10, 2008 at 2:06 pm

cute new header!

how nice your hubbie made lunch!!


12 Megan November 10, 2008 at 2:10 pm

Love the new header! I bet I can guess who was behind that one!!!

Love the GH bread sandwiches. That stuff rocks!


13 Megan November 10, 2008 at 2:10 pm

love the new header! your lunch looks delicious! I had goat cheese on my sandwich today too, crumbles though. I can’t find the hard kind of goat cheese…where do you get yours?
Hope you’re not too late to lab!!


14 Halie Wright November 10, 2008 at 2:11 pm

I like the new header!

You are a very fortunate lady to have a husband that makes you lunch!

Good for him eating all that bread! My husband is NO carbphobic but he feels bread is “too dry” to eat very much of. I love bread but I have such bad TMJ that I can’t eat my favorite chewy varieties anymore!


15 Beadie November 10, 2008 at 2:13 pm

Love the new header! And free bread sounds awesome!


16 caroline F. November 10, 2008 at 2:15 pm

Where can I get one of those, I need a bread King! :)
Good luck getting things movin, Im in the same boat today!!! Master Procrastinator over here!


17 Toni J. November 10, 2008 at 2:18 pm

I just noticed the header! That is very cool.

Your husband’s plate is my idea of heaven. I could subsist on bread and PB alone.


18 Amy13 November 10, 2008 at 2:21 pm

Love the new header! :)


19 Jenn (eating bender) November 10, 2008 at 2:22 pm

I love the new header, Kath! Very classy and very you :) Haha, and the picture with the husband + bread is great! I agree with Toni J. – my idea of heaven, for sure!


20 Rachel November 10, 2008 at 2:22 pm

I didn’t know such a thing as hard goat cheese existed! Hmm… will have to investigate.

Good luck with your busy day!


21 VeggieGirl November 10, 2008 at 2:22 pm

Gorgeous food!!

Haha, Matt looks quite happy 😀

Good luck with the busyness!!


22 Fancy November 10, 2008 at 2:27 pm

Ok. That bread looks amazing! I am officially sooooo excited to try it :)


23 linds November 10, 2008 at 2:31 pm

The new header looks awesome :) and a question about your pom seeds- how can you tell when it’s ripe?? I just bought one and I’m not sure when to cut it…

Have a great day Kath!


24 Shelby November 10, 2008 at 2:40 pm

Ooo, how nice of the hubby to make you lunch =)
I love the little yogurt cup…too bad i’m out of pom seeds! haha bread with a side of bread

Love the new header.


25 Ange C. November 10, 2008 at 2:42 pm

Enjoyed your chicago video! Fun to see all the action live.

And CUTE new header up top! Very fitting with the oatmeal. Thanks for your fun site. 😉


26 Runeatrepeat November 10, 2008 at 2:48 pm

The Husband’s sandwich looks so good. I love bread!


27 KatieTX November 10, 2008 at 2:52 pm

I agree on the new header. It looks more appetizing than brussel sprouts!


28 Mom November 10, 2008 at 2:53 pm

I’ve been dying for a new header (you know how I feel about b. sprouts) but as the mom, I try not to make TOO many suggestions. But I love it!


29 Justy2003 November 10, 2008 at 3:11 pm

I love the new header! It’s the first thing I noticed when I got on! And I love the picture of the oats…I assume it’s from one of your famous bowls 😉


30 Oh She Glows November 10, 2008 at 3:13 pm

Oh my gosh I wish I had a man’s metabolism!!! I would eat copious amounts of bread too!!!


31 Oh She Glows November 10, 2008 at 3:14 pm

Oh and I love the new avatar on the blog!


32 Krista November 10, 2008 at 3:15 pm

Great header!
My daughter is a bread freak!


33 Allison K November 10, 2008 at 3:20 pm

Love the new header! and those grapes look beautiful, I’m totally craving some now.


34 Cat November 10, 2008 at 3:20 pm

Haha the “bread king” and Erica’s comment about a “high carb diet” made me totally think of the movie Mean Girls. …you just eat tons of carbs and lose weight!


35 Santa Barbara Dreaming November 10, 2008 at 3:24 pm

The blueberry looks so juicy in your header :)
Carrots with PB=yum. I’m laughing at how he’s having a sammie with bread on the side


36 Ally November 10, 2008 at 3:46 pm

Hey Kath! Glad you had a great trip, still haven’t had time to catch up on your adventures but I’m looking forward to it.
Sounds like you guys have bread overload! Do you end up throwing alot out or do you freeze any of it?
Also just wanted to say if you do have extra one thing you can do is make bread crumbs with it and store them in the freezer for when you need to use them. My Mom always uses fresh bread crumbs now and its a real time saver if they are all ready to go!


37 Jenny November 10, 2008 at 4:14 pm

Hope you made it on time!!

Haha the husband’s plate cracks me up!!


38 ashley (sweet & natural) November 10, 2008 at 4:26 pm

The husband’s bread looks so soft and fresh!!


39 Tina November 10, 2008 at 4:31 pm

I like the new header, Kath! When did it go up? Or am I just really slow?


40 Maureen November 10, 2008 at 4:33 pm

The new header looks cool. Did you design it yourself?


41 Jennifer November 10, 2008 at 4:38 pm

Hallie, I have TMJ too… do you take anything for it, or just deal with it like I do?


42 Amanda in Pittsburgh November 10, 2008 at 4:48 pm

LOVE the new header, Kath! It seems to fit your personality better – more bubbly!! :o)

PS – What do carrots and peanut butter taste like? It looks good!


43 bobbi November 10, 2008 at 5:23 pm

Love the new banner!!! Love the pic of hubby too cute!


44 seelee live (for the love of peanut butter) November 10, 2008 at 5:35 pm

I’ve got a question–anyone can answer this. I am a tad “afraid” of ham deli meat-is it as high in protein as turkey? What are the nutritional stats?!


45 Amanda in Pittsburgh November 10, 2008 at 5:38 pm

PS, Kath, the Polar FT40 is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I just have to figure out how to get my training more in the fat burning zone; it was only in the fat burning zone for 6 minutes of my hour workout!


46 molls November 10, 2008 at 5:43 pm

I love your new web heading look!


47 runjess November 10, 2008 at 6:04 pm

Whoa, there’s hard goat cheese?


48 Katie November 10, 2008 at 6:07 pm

Mmm I am so jealous of all the bread you have! I got a bit too excited at the grocery store about a month ago, so I refrigerated a bunch and now it’s hard. Oh well, nothing the toaster can’t fix!


49 Melissa P. November 10, 2008 at 6:19 pm

Yikes, the husband must have a roof of his mouth that is like steal. Whenever I eat a lot of bread, it hurts the roof of my mouth. Odd…
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to eat all that bread and not gain weight though… Sigh…


50 Kath November 10, 2008 at 6:28 pm

SO GLAD you guys like the header!!! More on that tonight 😉

polly ,
I think he does a good bit of nibbling, but he’ll have to see.

Megan ,
Any gourmet cheese counter should have hard goat cheese. Harris Teeter has it, and this one’s from EF.

linds ,
I don’t know when they’re ripe – I think they always are in the store? But always try to get one heavy for its size.

Justy2003 ,
It IS one of my bowls 😉

Ally ,
This is our first week being overloaded with bread – we have been able to finish all 3 loaves the other weeks (esp. b/c the husband was taking some for breakfast sandwiches too) but we also give a lot of it away here and there.

seelee live (for the love of peanut butter),
Deli ham is just ham! It’s a little higher in fat and sometimes sodium (although I haven’t compared turkey + ham or deli ham vs. carved ham so I’m just guessing), but nothing to be afraid of. I think it’s got much more flavor than turkey on a sandwich.

Melissa P.,
GH bread is very soft!



51 Ruth Mauntz November 10, 2008 at 7:15 pm

I love the new header!!


52 Runjen November 10, 2008 at 8:26 pm

Love the new header! Did you do it or have it done? Looks great.

Also, I watched your video last night on classic oats and made them this a.m. Uh Muh Guh! So good! I am so glad that you posted this. You need to post more videos. They are so informative and clear!


53 Madison (FollowMyWeigh) November 10, 2008 at 8:29 pm

i think the new header is more you :) (oatmeal…)
