Easy Does It

I can’t believe I forgot to post info about the football game tonight! I guess I was just too excited about my lunch + my dessert I made last night :)

While working this afternoon, I broke into this new trail mix I got at Trader Joe’s a few weekends ago that has cranberries, almonds, macadamia nuts, and crystallized ginger!


I love ginger. I’d never had crystallized ginger with cranberries, but it’s a great combo!


Then I had some of my dessert I made, but I can’t show it it  ;) Recipe tomorrow!

Once Nick got home, we headed out for a short run. We’re actually running in a 5K on Saturday, so we just took an easy one today and will be taking a rest day tomorrow.

I ended up going unplugged again today – no HRM, no watch at all, nothing. Just us, running, talking, and enjoying the weather. Based on other mileage we’ve done, we probably ran 2.5 miles.

It was really nice today – the clouds we’ve had the past couple of days have finally gone away, finally showing some blue skies.

It had been a while since we’ve had taco salads, and I was missing them!


I mixed up some guacamole while Nick cooked up some ground beef for his tacos.


I made a big salad with:

  • lettuce
  • veg. refried beans
  • tomato
  • guacamole!
  • blue TJs chips


Go me! I had a vegetarian day (on World Vegetarian Day) and I didn’t even plan it!


Football tonight!

It’s on already!

Colorado vs. West Virginia 7:30 pm,  ESPN

Leave your pick in the comment!


And a new The Office is on at 9!  :)

  1. I’ve never seen that TJ trail mix before. It sounds all great to me, except I’m not a fan for the macadamia nuts.

    I hate that the office and grey’s are on at the same time. They do that just to spite each other

  2. my fiance, who is a colorado alum, said they’re going to lose :-)

  3. I think I’m the only one in the world who doesn’t watch The Office. I’m going to go against my better judgment and go for Colorado tonight.

  4. West Virginia
