Too Sleepy for Glee

by Meghann on February 16, 2011

Good Morning! πŸ™‚

I know it’s way past my bedtime when I fall asleep on the couch trying to watch the new episode of Glee via DVR. It was my treat after a long night of filming, but I couldn’t even make it past the opening credits before passing out.

Don’t worry, though. I’m catching up right now. The Bieber Experience is taking over my TV as we speak. πŸ˜‰

This morning I ran a great 5 miler and was happy to keep a 9:00 min/mile pace for the second day in a row. After 3 years of running I’ve come to appreciate the 9:00 min/mile as my comfortable natural pace.

Also, I ran with the new Garmin and have concluded that I need to find a way to transfer the velcro strap from the old Garmin to the new one.


The velcro strap was a Christmas gift from my sister. I didn’t realize how much I had grown to love it until I ran without it this morning. The velcro strap forms to your wrist and doesn’t budge at all when running. It’s much more comfortable than the stiff plastic strap. However, I lost the little tool it came with, so finding a way to transfer it is going to be a toughie. hmmmm….. any ideas?




Hello, Beautiful!

Overnight Oats in a Jar are my favorite. Obviously. πŸ™‚


In the Jar:

  • 1/2 cup Rolled Oats
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Almond Milk
  • Chia Seeds
  • Cinnamon
  • Raisins
  • Cocoa Almond Pieces

On top:


Still wasn’t a fan of the Chocolate Mint Cookie Granola, but wanted to use up the rest of the sample packet.


Maddie smells.

I think she needs a bath.

Another item to add to the list today.

Le sigh.

Dog smell fills me with dread because I know a bath is imminent, which means I end up soaked and have to clean the bathroom. We’ve taken to washing Roxie in the backyard with the hose, so she can zoom around after!

I LOVED Glee last night! I’m glad you’re catching up because it was an awesome one. I thought the Bieber songs were good, but what I REALLY loved was Take Me Or Leave Me, because one of my besties and I used to rock out to it as our pre-bar song in unversity (random, I know!) Have a good one Meghann!

Butbutbutbutbut… GLEE!! It was suuuuuch a good episode! Although anything with a Rent song is probably going to get my vote – and I totally caught Beiber Fever from it. Don’t tell anyone.

And dog washing used to be one of the banes of my existence (especially since I’ve got two pupsters!) before I bought a handheld attachment for the shower that has a little on/off toggle on the handle. Now instead of drying myself off after each doggie shower, I can just enjoy the hilarity that is watching the two of them zoom around the house trying to dry off!

Mint flavors just wouldn’t mesh with anything I would actually use yogurt with, i.e. fruit, yogurt, etc. Maybe the other flavors will be better…

I just got my first Garmin and I haven’t been able to use it because of all this ice we’ve had out here πŸ™ Now I want that velcro band and I really want to try out my Garmin! I need help setting it up though. Me = not savvy with technical stuff.

Glee was awesome last night. I even teared up a little when Mr. Schuster took Sue to the pediatric cancer ward. It was so sweet!!

I took French classes in high school so everytime you say Le Sigh I have to giggle. Your breakfast looks really good! I hope you have a good day. πŸ™‚

15 Erin February 16, 2011 at 10:51 am

I bet you could take your Garmins to a jewelry store or one of those watch kiosks in the mall (do you have those?) and they could swap the straps for you. Or, at the very least, sell you the tool you need πŸ™‚

I bathe my Rascal in the shower when I take a shower. It probably doesn’t take but maybe five additional minutes. You should try it sometime. We’ve always done it this way because Rascal is such an attention whore so he prefers to be with me and my husband and all times.

Oh, the Chocolate Mint Cookie Granola sounds great. Is it the taste you don’t like or a texture thing?

I totally need a velcro strap for my Garmin. I have tiny wrists, so it’s always bouncing around, which is super uncomfortable!

22 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) February 16, 2011 at 11:18 am

I think I need to buy some PB in a jar specifically for oats in a jar. I have a spoon that is perfect for scraping nut butter jars clean, so I always eat them before I can put oats in them πŸ™‚

I second the suggestion of a jewelry store to swap out the velcro wrist band.

I had vegan overnight oats for breakfast this morning and think it needed to be in an almost empty jar of pb. Have fun dog washing!

I really can’t stand the smell of “dog”! Hope you enjoyed what sounds like a relaxing morning!

I had a velcro strap like that for a normal watch, and I believe I just used an eyeglass screwdriver – ya know, the teeny tiny itsy bitsy ones? Not sure if it’s the same mechanism, but I thought I’d throw it out there! πŸ™‚

If you have one of those detachable spray nozzles for your shower it makes the bath go much faster.
