Hiding Under My Pillow

by Meghann on February 19, 2013

And…. I’m pretty sure I won’t be sleeping at all tonight.

Gulp. What was I thinking watching Waking Dead?!

Yes, it was highly recommended. Yes, it has about a gazillion awards. Yes, my Twitter feed and Facebook newsfeed blow up every time a new episode comes on AMC.

BUT…

I’m a big wimp when it comes to anything remotely scary or zombie related. I’m not built for that much anxiety!

Derek and I watched the first episode of Walking Dead on Netflix tonight and I spent the whole show hiding under a pillow.

Gah. I told you I was a wimp.

I’ve heard it gets better in later episodes, but I’m almost too terrified to find out. I think I need to take a day or two to recover from the pilot and let my heart rate come down first. :/

Are you a Walking Dead fan? Did the first episode give you a near-heart attack too?

Today’s snack: strawberry/ orange/ vanilla smoothie with a granola topper.

I love adding a granola topper to smoothies. It adds a nice crunch and, the best part is, once the smoothie is done, you can scrape the rest of the granola off the bottom with a spoon. Yum. yum. yum.

I tried this recipe for burmese spiced yogurt chicken for dinner tonight.

I used bone-in chicken breast instead of skinless/boneless, but I wish I would have deboned it before cooking. The bone-in chicken breast took about 30 minutes longer to cook than the recipe called for.

The chicken was good, but I wish I would have made more of the yogurt sauce to make up for the oversized chicken breast. I think this also would have been a better crock pot dish.

Alright, time to sleep. Let’s hope all the zombie nightmares stay far away!

Good Night!

Running Lingerie

February 19, 2013

Good morning! It was another gorgeous morning for a run. We’ve seriously been lucking out with great running weather in Tampa Bay lately, the slightly cooler weather makes training for speed so much more enjoyable. I had a 6 mile run on the schedule today with a 4 mile tempo @ 8:10 min/mi pace. I more »
