First of all – Group Skype is awesome.

Screen shot 2011-07-19 at 7.33.37 PM.png

I was able to video chat with both my parents (+ Scooby!) and my twin brother (all the way in California!) at the same time. I haven’t seen ( or even really chatted) with my brother since he moved to Los Angeles last month, so it was nice to catch up. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dr. Anderson seems to be settling into the crazy L.A. lifestyle effortlessly. He’s been consistently working the 8:00pm – 10:00am shift at the hospital, sight seeing when ever he’s not working, and has learned that caffeine is his new best friend. I’m hoping I can fly out there and visit him soon!

Besides the 45 minute group chat, my day was pretty typical around here. Lots of computer work followed by lots of good food.


It’s hot outside and when it’s hot I tend to lean towards cool, refreshing salads lunch.


Today’s Mix

  • Spinach
  • Chickpeas
  • Roasted Red Peppers
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Raisins
  • Spicy Jack Cheese
  • Dressing = EVOO + Vinegar + Lemon Juice


Cinnamon Pita Chips are my new favorite thing. ๐Ÿ˜‰



Afternoon Cereal Snack




Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite go-to meals because it’s ridiculously easy to make. (At least the way I do it is…)

  • Coat thin chicken cutlets with seasoned bread crumbs
  • Bake at 400 for 5 minutes
  • Flip
  • Top with marinara sauce and cheese
  • Bake 5 more minutes
  • Done!


Easy peasy! And Delicious! It’s one of Derek’s faves. ๐Ÿ™‚

I kept it easy with some steamed frozen veggies on the side.


A new dessert: frozen peaches and dark chocolate chips. ๐Ÿ™‚


Really good, but my teeth are just a tad too sensitive to eat so much frozen fruit in one sitting. I had to chase the fruit with a hot cup of tea. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s all from me.

Good Night!

A Running Fool

July 19, 2011

Just call me a running fool. ๐Ÿ™‚ Typical Tuesday. 60 minute spin class. 30 minute run. Scratch that. 36 minute run. I’m so over the treadmill. My legs wanted to run, so I took them outside and just let them go. And you know what? They felt great! After the accident the only thing I more ยป
