Some Food

by Meghann on November 14, 2012

Psst… I updated the wedding page today. Check out the progress I’ve made on the Bridal Shape-Up plan thus far.

Look what arrived in the mail today.

I’m on an Ironman research kick lately. This is one of three books I ordered off of Amazon last week. Truth be told, I have no idea how to train for an Ironman, so I’m using these books as a jumping off point in figuring out what exactly I’m getting myself into. So far I’ve discovered I’m in for lots of pain, dozens of potential injuries, hours in the pool/on the track/in the saddle, and an insatiable appetite. Noted. Am I crazy if I’m still really excited about doing it? Yes, but according to these books, at least I’m not alone.

My lunch today was a little Mexican fiesta.

The chicken tortilla soup is from the Publix deli. I love their deli soups, they’re quick, tasty, and easy.

On the side I made a mini quesadilla with a blue flaxseed tortilla, cheddar cheese, and half an avocado.

Dinner was simple: italian sausage with peppers and onion, mashed sweet potatoes, and roasted broccoli/cauliflower.

I also had a handful of nuts as an afternoon snack.

Derek and I were able to tackle a few wedding tasks this evening – I love checking items off of the to-do list! We also caught up on How I Met Your Mother (love the show!) and Gossip Girl (more for me than him). The makings of a good night. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now it’s time to get some sleep.

Good night!

Mmm, I LOVE avocados! I have been stuffing them with crab meat, tomato, and cucumber lately, then drizzling with a little soy sauce and some green onion & sesame seed for garnish. I have also been pureeing avocado and making salad dressing it. So versatile! I still need to try avocado in brownies…..

Doesn’t it feel good to catch up and check off more wedding to-do’s? It will be here before you know it! ๐Ÿ™‚

That avocado looks amazing. But even more amazing is that you can get Derek to sit through Gossip Girl! My BF runs from the room the minute he hears the show start lol

I don’t think I could ever make it through an Ironman considering just looking at the cover of that book intimidates me haha. And your quesadilla looks delicious!

I am a huge fan of book research. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck on the training. Of course I always fixate on the food pictures. That avocado looks scrumptious. ๐Ÿ™‚

Not going to lie–the Ironman book excites me, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Can you write a review when you’re done reading it, Meghann? (#trigeek over here!)

Any night where you can check items off your To Do list and watch gossip girl is a good night!

Yay Publix! I miss them so much since I’ve moved. Every time I come back home a Publix sub and sweet tea is always one of the first things I get.
