Rainy Rainbow

August 31, 2009

Blah to the rainy day, but 1) at least it’s not super hot (I’m wearing JEANS!) and 2) We’ve got a stellar forecast for the rest of the week!

Matt and I went to the gym mid-morning via AUTOMOBILE . I can’t remember the last time I drove to the gym. It was strange! Biking there is such a part of my workout experience now. I did 35 minutes on the elliptical and lifted weights until my arms and legs were tired – about 15 minutes.

Shower –> Glam –> Lunch

I made a sandwich of Applegate Farms Turkey and Laughing Cow with Lettuce + Tomato

And enjoyed a big scoop of Gena’s Pizza Cheese with a rainbow of veggies

This stuff goes down like water and I know in the back of my mind it’s essentially a nut butter, so I tried to serve myself what looked like an appropriate amount to get a dab on each of my veggies and put the rest away for another meal.

Off to double classes! I’m wearing bright colors to combat the dreary day. And I’ve got strawberries for a snack!

bright colors do make days better-I had a friend who owned BRIGHT yellow shoes that she wore to school any day she was tired/stressed/etc. she said that she could look at her feet and instantly feel better :-)

lunch looks awesome, have a great afternoon of classes!


4 Leianna August 31, 2009 at 12:16 pm

Looks like a lovely array of lunch eats, love the colorful veggies! Rain doesn’t sound good though!

/Gosh i just love the bread you use – it looks amazing!
I have been wearing jeans all summer as i am cold natured but there were those days i wish i owned some shorts. i got a few pairs but never had the courage to wear em.

Fun colored foods on rainy days are perfect! Enjoy classes. :-)

I love your Gather article and the tip to match hunger levels with portion size when eating out. I’ve always heard we should attempt to divide our meal in half when our food arrives at a restaurant. That way we can save the leftovers for the next day..but this just never seems to work for me lol. Your tip is more realistic and will help us avoid over eating– and not have to worry about diving into the doggy bag in the fridge late at night . :) Lovely lunch! That seed covered bread looks so great!


8 Greta August 31, 2009 at 12:27 pm

Your bread always looks awesome, does Great Harvest do online orders?


9 Britt August 31, 2009 at 12:29 pm

Yummy lunch!

Great Gather article…. next time in NOLA head uptown for a run. When I went to college there I LOVED running along the streetcar line or around Audubon Park.

Fallon ,
They do make a Spelt bread, but it is made in the same equipment as the regular wheat breads.
