It never fails. Every time I eat baby carrots, I get hiccups.  This can also happen if I eat a really hot cherry pepper but those hiccups are really fast and nauseating.  The baby carrot hiccups are simply annoying.

Today while I prepared my lunch, I grabbed some baby carrots and a TBS hummus to munch while creating.  …and got the hiccups.

carrots-and-hummusMy salad was a mix of broccoli slaw, watercress, spinach with cucumber slices, radish, sliced cherry toms, red pepper and F/F Ginger Sesame dressing. 

I also had 13 Bean Vegetable soup with 1/4 cup brown rice.  It was filling and satisfying.

Some people wonder how I can eat salad everyday. I love it. It is actually my favorite part of the meal. Probably because I really enjoy crunch.  Although I love bread, sandwiches can turn my stomach off if they are even a little soggy or have any soggy/soft fillings. Guess that’s why salads are my lunch of choice.









Tonights dinner was a quick frittata since we had class with Shane.   We threw together 2 chopped green onions, 3/4 chopped red bell pepper, 6 slices of Baked Ham Style vegetarian meat-chopped,


4 baby bella mushrooms-sliced, and about 3 cups baby spinach.  After those veggies were sauteed in olive oil, we added 1 1/2 cups egg whites and 2 whole eggs.  Topped the frittata with 2 sliced plum tomatoes, crumbled blue cheese, and parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheated 375 F oven for about 15 min.  It’s plenty large enough for left overs tomorrow.

As for the rest of the evening, we’ll relax. It has started icing up outside so we are definately in for the night.  I did want to try carob chip cookies at some point, but I don’t have it in me tonight.

Pleasant dreams!

Can you believe it is 52 Degrees!  The sun isn’t shining and it’s raining but… 52 Degrees! Unfortunately the temp is predicted to drop by the end of today, but this warm spell is nice because it keeps the snow accumulation in check.

Today’s work out was 40 minutes on the ET.  40 minutes  chest and biceps. 40 minutes walking really fast with Shane. The motivating factor for the fast walk this morning was 1.  It was raining, and 2. I didn’t dress for rain, I dressed for warm weather walking.  All in all, good morning activities.

Breakfast:  Prework out Jay Robb Shake.  Post workout eats were 1/4 cup GF Steel Cut oats with 1 TBS 10 grain cereal. 1/4 banana and cinnamon added during cooking.  Fruit was 1/2 a grapefruit. Protein was 1 scoop Jay Robb + 1/4 banana + lots of ice and water.
