    I’m glad you’re liking the gym. When I saw your gym card I about died. I worked out at one of the other gyms in that chain when I was living in Michigan. They have great equipment and great classes in my opinion!
    I can’t wait to watch House tonight!

    I think it’s an interesting thing to be blogging and then have people who you interact with on a daily basis your your inner thoughts/struggles etc. I am ALWAYS weary of having men who I am going on dates with etc. find me online. I have had one guy find me on YouTube and then read my blogs and watch my videos. It surprised me how open I have been with random people..and yet I felt a bit weird about someone like that being part of my life. It’s an interesting balance as a blogger, but I wouldn’t and won’t hold back because of that.

    My relationship status with my gym would be “it’s complicated” even after being a member for over four years. I can’t believe I put up with the BS that I do at Bally Total Fitness. Hope your gym relationship isn’t as “complicated” as mine!

    I was watching that House episode tonight too, and chuckled at the same line that you pointed out πŸ™‚

    I LOVE HOUSE (as evidenced by my Twitter page). I need to find that race. I am too lazy to make rice generally…

    I’m kind of over my gym and am looking forward to a new, exciting relationship with a better, more fulfilling gym once I move!

    I watched House! Actually, that line made me feel like I always feel about my blog: I wish I could be more open on it. But I’m still a bit reserved. I couldn’t say everything I’d want to say on there or my family (some of my most loyal readers…feel free to stop by!) may disown me. πŸ™‚

    I love House but didn’t see it tonight… the blogger quote is so true though! I know a lot more about some bloggers day to day life than my own (in real life) friends.

    I didn’t watch tonight’s ep just yet – I recorded it on the DVR while we were out grocery shopping, now I’m even more eager to watch it! I tend to be reserved on my blog, but am trying to loosen up a bit πŸ™‚

    My husband is obsessed with House (I would say equal to mine and the blogging world) and was watching it when I got home from a meeting. I caught the last few minutes. He turned to me and said “You missed House. It was about some crazy blogging chick. You would have appreciated her weirdness.” Haha, he won’t ever get it. πŸ™‚

    Hahah good line! I’ve never seen House – that’s the medical one right, with Hugh Laurie? It looks like it should be good but it’s always on at some stupid o’clock hour here πŸ™
    LOVE the dinner!

    I think you’re going to find that the gym helps you to keep your workout routine fresh. When I didn’t belong to one, I would get into exercise ruts because all I would do was run and use the same at-home DVDs all the time. I don’t go to the gym everyday, but it helps to have access to such a wide variety of exercise equipment, classes, etc.

    I’m in a committed relationship with my gym and it’s become my second home! I could never give up my membership because I’d miss the people there so much. And I have a major Mexican craving, so that dinner looks perfect!

    That minute rice is one of my STAPLES!! πŸ™‚
    I even put in my oatmeal! It makes a great addition to a wrap too!
    I keep them on hand at all times and they’re great for work lunches because they only take a minute! Glad you discovered them! πŸ™‚

    I hope you and your gym are happy together for a long, long time. I love my gym. They have lots of locations so it’s convenient no matter where I am (usually). Also, they sponsor 5Ks (I’m doing one this weekend) and send out health information e-mails. πŸ™‚

    I watched House!! That was definitely the best line! I also liked when House said something like what does she blog about “….cooking? I could use some recipes!” Loved it πŸ™‚

    I love House too! I was so excited for a new episode and this was a good one. Did you ever watch That 70’s Show? That was one of my favorites when I first started college…the blogger was Donna Pinciotti! πŸ™‚

    I thought that was a great episode of House! I thought about all the blogs that I read and how you feel like you know people even though I don’t.

    Those little rice bowls are so cute! I love your lunch idea, sounds delish and easy to make! And yay for joining a gym. I love having the option to go there and join in a group excersize class or just lift some weights from time to time. But I still love to run outside too. Now you have the best of both worlds!

    Good for you finding a great gym! πŸ™‚ I recently found a fantastic gym, but they only have 12 month and 24 month memberships and it sucks.

    Anyway, I love your blog and your eats always look sooooo good!:)

    Congrats on the gym membership. Since I live way up north I couldn’t survive the winter without one.

    How cute that you and the little girl were challenging each other. πŸ™‚

    Hi Meghann,

    Long time lurker, first time commenter. Thought I would share a tip about freezing brown rice so you can save money and still enjoy rice in a few minutes.

    When I make rice, I make a big pot so I have leftovers. I used to freeze the leftovers in little individual baggies, but I felt bad about the waste. Then I came upon the idea to make little brown rice “pucks” with a 1/2 cup measuring cup. I place all the pucks on a cookie sheet and freeze. Once they’re frozen then go into one big ziploc baggie and I can grab one at a moments notice.

    Hope you it works for you!

    I tried that rice a year ago and thought it was awful!! Tasted like dried up mice poop.
