Blog Calm

I treasure the moment at the end of a busy day when I can sit down post on my blog and catch up on all my favourite blogs. It’s a great way to relax and unwind. So here I sit relaxing and unwinding. Today there was no getting up at 4:30am!! Thank Goodness! I slept very soundly for the first time in a very, very long time!

I really wish I had my camera at work today. My colleague and amazing friend brought me lunch that is so, so blothworthy!! Every bite I took I kept thinking about how I wished I had my camera!! He made me the best pasta salad with tri-colour rigatoni, chicken breast, feta cheese, black olives, red peppers tossed in an Italian dressing. It was fabulous! I wish I had a photo….darn…

I had a big, juicy apple and a Quaker’s Delights Bar. Yum!

The gym was so great today!!

Run Stats: 6.61 miles, 60 minutes, Average Pace: 9:04min/mil

This post is lacking photos and I haven’t posed any questions. I always have amazing ideas swirling in my head during the day. I will start writing them down during the day so I can blog at night. Relaxation leads to numbness of thought. haha

On to dinner and some photos! I was not in the mood to cook at all given that it was almost 8pm when I walked through the door. A salad was needed for sure because my day lacked fresh fruit & veggies. The salad included: mixed greens, sweet orange peppers, tomatoes, alfalf a sprouts, scallions, blueberries, sugar snap peas, avocadoes, sunflower seeds & dried cranberries tossed in raspberry vinagrette. The avocado added so much to the taste. It was just wonderful.

On the side I had whole wheat toast- one with President’s Choice Swiss Cheese Round and the other with peanut butter & strawberry rhubarb jam.

Have a great evening ladies & gents!

  1. Avocado is similar to peanut butter in that WHATEVER you add it to, it makes the taste about ten times better than before! The salad looks beautiful.

  2. Haha – I always eat the best food when I don’t have a camera. It’s definately annoying :-)I love your fruity salad – that’s definately super healthy! How do make your raspberry vinagrette?

    Great workout too. I’m just about to head off to the gym myself. I’ll use it as my inspiration!

  3. I love winding down by blog writing/reading too! I’ve had to start writing down the blog ideas I get during the course of the day as well. By the time I sit down to write, I always forget the important stuff!

  4. Eeek that salad looks amazing! Everything in it sounds delicious, and I agree, people say avacado is bland but I find it so flavor packed!

    I’m the same with blog writing, too. Throughout the day I think of something I want to say on the blog, but by the time I’m ready to write my mind is blank! Writing stuff down during the day is a good idea.

    Take care m’dear!

    Much love,

  5. That pasta salad sounds wonderful!

  6. I agree, blogging can be SO relaxing sometimes! How sweet of your friend to make you such a deicious lunchy. Your salad looks great- I love the fruit additions

  7. I’m another fan of adding fruit to salads. I made one with apricot at the weekend – it was delicious! Have never tried blueberries, but I will now :).

  8. Your salad is so colorful – love it!

    I love adding fruit to salads – sadly my husband thinks iceburg lettuce is a salad! 😀

  9. So glad that things calmed down at work (for you and for me)!

    Love the salad, it is so wonderfully colorful.

    Re: the WW comment on my blog…
    I’m sorry to hear you had to stop going to WW, I find the meetings very grounding and centering. I absolutely love me leader too. Do they have any weekend meetings by you? I hate when clothes don’t fit (too small or too big), it just sucks having to buy new stuff. I am not a shopper. 🙂

  10. wow thats such an impressive time for your milage!! totally jealous 😀

    love those quaker delight bars too!

  11. I definitely look forward to blogging at the end of the night.. very relaxing =)

    Those quaker delights bars make my life! the banana macadamia coconut one is my favorite for sure!

  12. Great job on the run!

  13. The salad looks good. I’m not too sure how I’d feel about it with the green pasta. Is that green pasta? Anyway, how about writing a blog about kitchen essentials; products every kitchen should have, like vinegar for instance.


  14. I love fruit + salad… yum yum

    That lunch sounds fabulous, how cool is it that you have such kind colleagues!
