It’s so strange to go from such a great high yesterday with Caitlin’s wedding to such a low today.

I managed to sleep in this morning until 9:00am which is so unlike me. Even though I had plenty of sleep, I still woke up completely exhausted. Then I had problems uploading my blog entries and that mixed with anger at my Mom’s camera not being up to my high standards has just put me in such an unpleasant mood. I apologize in advance if this entry is not up to my normal perky standards, I am in desperate need of sleep ASAP!

I did make a great breakfast this morning, however I was so angry with my blog at the moment I could not enjoy it. I hate it when bad moods get in the way of good food.


I had two slice of Whole Wheat French Toast, topped with Blackberries and Syrup.

Abbie has been staying at my parents the past week since i have been uber busy with New Years and wedding stuff. I was so excited to be able to go pick her up today!

When I got to my parents all I wanted was a Publix Sub and some soup. My family had already ate lunch, but my Dad was nice enough to drive me to Publix to pick up a veggie packed sub.


I got a whole Veggie Sub on Wheat. Inside is Swiss Cheese, Jalepenos, Banana Peppers, Tomato, Onion, and Lettuce. I ate half and am saving the rest for tomorrow. I also had a mug of V8 Butternut Squash Soup.

My Sis had make some Chocolate Chip cookies the night before so I treated myself to one that was staring at me on the cake stand.


My Parents gave each other a Kayak for Christmas. I have been seeing the photos pop up on Facebook of my other family members enjoying the Kayak, but today was the first time I got to experiment with the new toy.

We took it out to the Indian River, it was so quiet and peaceful. It would be a great place to go and think.

After kayaking we came back for a great dinner. My Dad decided to be a little creative with the Salmon for dinner.


He usually cooks the Salmon in lots of butter and heavy whipping cream. It always tastes wonderful, but its not the best for the waist line. I have been getting on him for healthier versions to the salmon and he’s always willing to humor me with different cooking methods.

Tonight we baked the salmon in the over in a foil pouch. On the salmon we had fresh oregano, garlic, onion, lemon and carrot. It came out wonderfully light and refreshing.


As I was complaining about above, my mom’s camera does not take the best photos, so I apologize for the poor quality. On the side of the salmon I had a small baked potato and steamed green beans.

When I got home I had a handful of cherries to tame my sweet tooth.


Now it’s FINALLY time for me to go to bed! I have to go back to the real world tomorrow… BOOOO…..

All of your eats/pics look great today! It’s always a good feeling when you can affect your family members in a healthy way ๐Ÿ™‚

I hear ya about the work week ahead. After all of the shortened weeks and fun holiday events, 5 days of work seems impossible. Hey, the weekend will be here before we know it! Keep your head up, girl!

11 Sharon January 4, 2009 at 10:43 pm

Hope you catch up on sleep, and great eats !

Random question: I’m training for the half marathon in April and have never carried water with me before… I’m going to need to start in a couple of weeks and I don’t know what kind of bottle/belt/whatever to buy! Do you have any suggestions? Do you use a belt or a camelbak or anything on your long runs?

Thanks in advance, you are so fab!

13 Meghann January 5, 2009 at 8:24 am

Hey Amanda! I find it easy jsut to carry a waterbottle in my hands, any kind will work. Just make sure its small and light enough that your hand won’t hurt from carrying it. I had asked for a lightweight Camelback for christmas, but did not recieve it. If I had the extra $$ I would invest in one of those. I try to stay away from teh water belts, jsut becuase I feel they throw my weight off, but to each their own. ๐Ÿ™‚

Your parents kayak? So cool! I bet my Mom doesn’t even know what one is. I’ve done it a couple of times and I agree that it’s very peaceful. I’m already ready for summer to get here to do it again.

Meghann, sorry you had a rough day. At least you got Abbie back and some time in with the fam! Your fruit continues to amaze me…those blackberries…man, they look good!

17 Erica January 5, 2009 at 6:13 am

18 Kimberly January 5, 2009 at 7:05 am

Aw, sorry about your exhaustion/lack of perk. Hopefully you got some rest last night!

And YUM! I loooove Publix veggie subs — their seedy/multigrain bread is awesome.

19 Elina January 5, 2009 at 8:35 am

Hope you got a good night of sleep and are feeling better! Don’t worry about less than perfect pics for a few weeks – we’ll stick around ๐Ÿ˜€ Plus, your food still looks delicious! The french toast, especially… yum!

20 Erin January 5, 2009 at 10:57 am

I hear you! Having a blast and then just chillin out is totally weird!
How fun is kayaking though, right? I love those kind of sports and nontraditional workouts.
The berries! I’m so jealous! THey look delicious!

21 Andrea [bella eats] January 5, 2009 at 12:05 pm
