Kale Cures All

by Meghann on December 12, 2012

Derek’s sick. :(

Poor baby was up all night with the shakes. We don’t know if it’s a nasty cold, virus, or what, but he feels awful. I feel pretty helpless knowing there’s not much I can do but help him feel comfortable as he fights this thing.

I broke out some kale for lunch today and asked Derek if he wanted any as he entered the kitchen to see what I was up to. He asked if it would help him feel better. I had to think about that one, I mean it’s full of good-for-you vitamins and greens, right? What could it hurt? Sure. Why not. He made a huge plate of it and ate it plain. Man, he really will try anything if it helps him feel better.

I opted to sauté my kale in a little lemon juice, salt, and evoo with some leftovers from last night’s dinner (turkey burger, brussels sprouts, and potatoes) and topped it all with cheese.


Tasted pretty good to me.


I’m crossing my finger that the kale kicks whatever Derek has butt, in hopes that it will prevent it from hitting me. We have a bad habit of trading colds and I could do without this one thankyouverymuch. I’m also loading up on vitamin C, airborne, and every other preventative measures out there that probably won’t actually work, but in the slim chance they do, I’m not taking any chances. ;)

Dirty Girl Florida

Looks like I’ll be spending my 28th birthday getting dirty!!

Dirty Girl is coming to the Tampa Bay area on February 9th and tapped a few of the Tampa Bay Lady Bloggers to give the 5k mud run hell. After having so much fun getting muddy at Pretty Muddy in November, I can’t wait to reunite with my girls for this race!


Dirty Girl is a “girl power” mud run that takes all the pressure off of the usual mud run atmosphere by removing chip timers, giving participants the option to go around obstacles, and encouraging costumes, teamwork, and just plain fun. Dirty Girl Mud Runs take place all over the U.S. and are coming to Florida this January/ February (Miami Jan 19th, Jacksonville Jan 26th, and Tampa Feb 9th).

The February 9th race takes place the day after my 28th birthday, so I plan to celebrate with this race in style. Maybe a big birthday hat? Multiple tutus? Some other completely obnoxious costume? The sky is the limit!

If you would like to celebrate with us, you can register for the Tampa Dirty Girl Mud Run now using the code FLBLOGGUEST for 20% off the race entry! The code is also good for the Miami and Jacksonville races in January. The TBLB will be kicking the race off in the 8:00am wave – please join us!!

Bonus: Anyone who registers for the Miami, Jacksonville or Tampa Dirty Girl Mud Runs between Dec. 5th and 11:59 PM on Dec. 24th will automatically be entered to win a gym membership of her choice valued up to $500!

Have you ever done a birthday race? Did you dress up? Any suggestions for a fun costume?!

Disclosure: I’m a Dirty Girl Ambassador, selected because of my general awesome nature and ability to inspire. In return for spreading the word, my Dirty Girl Mud Run is comped, but all opinions are my own.
