The morning was successful. After getting some stuff done, we finally made it to the gym around 11:30. Luckily the weather held up and we were able to bike there, but it’s pouring now!! I spent some time on the ET with a good magazine and then we met up for some pull-ups and dips.
You know how I’ve been raving about Mrs. Meyers All-Purpose cleaner? Well I discovered it works really well on our hardwood floors. It’s designed for all surfaces, so it is so nice to have 1 cleaner for the whole house in 1 spray bottle. One reason I HATE cleaning our floors is that I hate getting out the bucket, moving all the furniture, using the vinegar, waiting for it to dry, using the OrangeGlo, waiting for it to dry. It takes like 30-45 minutes. But I discovered that the Mrs. Meyers works just as well as those two (at least for weekly cleanings – I’ll still use the distilled vinegar/move furniture once a month). I’m happy that I can just wet my O-Mop, spritz the floor and be done in 5 minutes. Sweet!
For lunch I decided to have half a turkey + cheese sandwich with some tasty sides. This was 1 slice of Applegate Farm’s Herb Roasted Turkey with some mustard, Parrano cheese and jalapenos under the broiler for a few.
Plus I had a side salad made with CSA mystery greens, some pear (that’s the husband’s handiwork!) and Karen’s lemon dressing (I’m going to get her recipe for this soon).
And a delicious yogurt-granola-pear parfait topped with TJ’s Pumpkin Butter, which is great. It’s just like pumpkin jam. This was the TJ’s European yogurt. I liked it a lot, but nothing compared to the thickness of greek yogurt. But this kind was thick and tangy. It reminded me of the Emmi brand swiss yogurt I used to buy at the Fresh Market. This European was DEFINITELY better than your average plain yogurt. For the cost, I’d say it’ll be a supplement to our greek supply in the future.
The husband, it being a “Saturday” and all, made a huge bowl of dessert. And I found a little sampling in my empty parfait glass!
We are planning to go to the movie after dinner instead of this afternoon. And I think we’re going to sneak in some wine! Until then, I’ve got to buckle down and get some studying done 😥
Danielle shared this great video on women’s body image this morning. Check it out. Not only does it have a good message, but I LOVE how creative it is with the visual and music.
