Box to Table

Thank goodness today is over!

I’m sitting on the couch in my pajamas have nothing else planned for tonight besides packing my lunch and having some tea and maybe some popcorn.

I had some almonds + dried apricots this afternoon – I knew we would probably be running once Nick got home from work.


I was not in the mood to run today, but I knew we needed to go. The rest of our week is either going to be bad weather or busy, so this may be the only night we get to go until this weekend.

So, we went. It wasn’t great – my legs were super tight the entire time, but we went anyway. Today was ran about 3 miles – something is better than nothing, right? I think any activity I can get in is good, especially since my job is just sitting for 8 hours.

At least dinner tonight was easy!


I took 2 boxes of Annie’s Whole Wheat Shells +White Cheddar and added the following:

  • 2 bags frozen mixed veggies (peppers, corn, broccoli, cauliflower)
  • 2 extra crowns of broccoli
  • 2 laughing cow wedges
  • 1/2 slice colby jack cheese
  • salt



I added some red pepper flakes to mine for a little kick.

We didn’t eat all of that tonight – I decided to go ahead and make both boxes I had in the cabinet so we could have some leftovers for lunch this week.


I can’t wait to have it tomorrow  :)


So much has been happening the past week, that I keep forgetting to post the voting reminder! I know I’m pretty far behind, but I might as well try while it’s still going!

Vote for me here to get the Good Mood Blog gig!
