I am at such a loss for words today!!

Sides-2Blog-2

Monday Musings
  • I got my debit card back
  • I’m working on a webinar on Vitamin D for my RD continuing ed
  • I haven’t yet started my bakery newsletter blasts
  • 2 packages just arrived on the doorstep. I think they are frames for posters to hang in the basement! Once that is done I can finish the second part of Home Neat Home basement!
  • Went to Chris’s Body Pump this morning. Told him how we have tons of mutual friends. Class was hard, but not our hardest. I was thankful we didn’t do calf raises today.
  • I saw the sun for about 10 seconds
  • Ate a random mix for lunch

I really want to try Body Pump! Have you posted longer review about your experience at all? It’d be great to hear what you think about them!

My apologies for my mishap comment earlier. I am glad you found your debit card. Those pears look delicious. And cinnamon is a great enhancement for just about any food. ;)

Sounds like a busy day! I had a pear today as well. I never thought to add cinnamon to it. Must try! :)

5 Johanna B December 5, 2011 at 2:54 pm

I add cinnamon to everything. My favorite thing to add it to is Greek Yogurt. I add a splash of good vanilla and some cinnamon. Yummo.

Great photos speakage! ;) I totally love carrots and hummus-so delicious! Oh and packages–fun!!

I am feelling the BodyPUMP soreness today —gotta love a hard class (esp when you teach it! hah).

Oh BodyPump! I haven’t gone in weeks because of my running schedule, but I think I need to get started again before they release #80. It’s supposed to be crazy hard!

Reply

13 Laura @ She Eats Well December 5, 2011 at 3:10 pm

I think your lunch looks absolutely lovely. But then again, a fried egg sandwich (or any type of variation on that) is perfect in my book any day. :)

Reply

14 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious December 5, 2011 at 3:11 pm

I have been vegan for 3+ years, I thought all of my egg replacements have been quite good. I have even made “dippy” eggs, but your real eggs on toast remind me of the one’s my grandmother used to make me in my pre-vegan years. I now know, I have to find a way to replicate that look!

15 Andrea @FrSeed2Stomach December 5, 2011 at 3:19 pm

my favorite kind of lunch. :-)

16 Kate @ PastaFreeRunner December 5, 2011 at 3:20 pm

First of all, I LOVE that all of your drink glasses are mason jars! Such a cute idea! Second of all, that is the greatest placemat! and third of all, your food looks delicious today!

17 Kinley @ Better Off Barefoot December 5, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Monday’s = brains not wanting to work or be creative… I like how you still managed to get a little something typed though :) And had a pretty yummy looking random lunch!

18 Emily G. @ from my messy desk December 5, 2011 at 3:22 pm

I would really love to try Body Pump. My gym offers it, but you can’t buy classes, you have to pay the pricey membership! Boo!

Anyway – I love dippy eggs on toast! It’s so easy yet I always forget about it!

yummy! What a tasty lunch!

I would be very interested to hear what you learn about vitamin D. I’ve been reading a lot about it lately and how it protects the body in many ways from disease and how a lot of us have low levels. I know our skin makes it from the sun but I’m interested in learning how to get more vit D in my diet.

Not related to this post, but have you heard about this yet? Thought you would be interested since you own the same (or similar?) shirt….

I hear ya – some days there’s just not much to say! That lunch looks incredible – the egg is perfectly cooked! Did you do it in the microwave?? I love throwing together random things and calling it a meal :)

Love Body Pump, but hate calf raises…i’m with you! Also really excited about the full view super setting in google reader…thanks again for mentioning that! :)

27 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga December 5, 2011 at 3:57 pm

10 seconds of seeing the sun is NOT enough. Those winter days are…well…not my favorites.

Here’s to more sun in your world tomorrow. And to getting all your projects accomplished and webinar written/done. Always a nice feeling once you can cross that stuff off your list.

Sometimes, random meals are the best…a little bit of everything to satisfy all the cravings!

Yum! I just finished a snack of carrots and hummus after taking a hiatus from them for a while. Is that the peanut butter hummus? I always add strange things to my hummus too!

Seriously, everything you eat always looks so, so tasteful and 10.000 times better then when I would make it. That’s an amazing skill :) I wish I would have you cook for me now and again !

I also like the combination of your yellow and while tablecloth with black and white placemat!

Sometimes no words are needed and it’s best to just let the pictures do the talking. You somehow always manage to make a sunny-side up egg look like an elegant delicacy. What’s your secret to a perfectly cooked egg? Mine always come out all runny and goopy. I think I need a good egg tutorial.
Have a great Monday! You should deem yourself lucky to have even seen the sun at all today. We’ve gone a good three days in a row now with no sunlight whatsoever :(

I had a similar lunch today, although my pear was not nearly as pretty as yours, but probably just as tasty :-) Super cute font you used on your pics, I especially love the curly-cues on the ‘g’s in “Eggs”!

Hey Kath. Your photos always speak 1000 words. : ) Glad you found your debit card. Whew. In addition to Vitamin D-rich foods, I have found that Shaklee’s Vitamin D3 is a great, inexpensive supplement that gets results. Looking forward to your next Home Clean Home post.

Totally random question, but do you drink tap water filtered or unfiltered? If filtered, what system do you use? Just curious…I’m looking at purchasing a system. Thanks!

Tap :)

Towards the end of my pregnancy, I ate a pear sprinkled with cinnamon almost every night. And my belly made a built-in table for it. We don’t have pears on Oki….I’ve been considering ordering some of those Frog ones you eat, or the Harry & David ones but I’m too nervous about how they’d hold up during shipping.

I’m loving sunny and runny eggs lately on my bfast sandwiches [with a touch of jam]! Apples, citrus, and pears are the best fall/ winter fruits [IMO] :D Your hummus looks super thick- homemade?!

P.S. Yay for getting your debit card back, could have been worse…
