Workout, lunch, giveaway

Today's workout: 1 hour of slow walking on the treadmill while reading "Swamplandia." 45 minutes of slow biking while continuing to read. I've been taking it easy since the marathon this weekend. Yoga class on Tuesday, which somehow turned out to be half pilates, and the easy workout today. My legs aren't feeling sore anymore, so I'm thinking about trying a couple of running miles tomorrow. Not running gets boring quickly.

Today's lunch: mixed greens topped with leftover steak (from my husband's fancy banker dinner out last night), grilled purple onion and red pepper, and avocados.

Salad in a mixing bowl

Today's giveaway: check out Mama Loves Medals who is giving away an awesome knitted headband. Her mom is custom knitting it for the winner in the color you choose. Crocheting is one of my recent loves, and knitters seem like magical yarn elves with their double needles. Is it as tricky as it looks?

Today's goal: finish "Swamplandia" before book club tonight at 8, and don't get blown away in a tornado. The winds and rains are kicking into high gear right now.

What did you have for lunch today? 

What are you going to accomplish by the end of the day?


  1. For lunch today I had a sandwich from Erik's Deli. It was awesome!!!

    By the end of the day I hope to accomplish a win for my basketball team against our city rivals. My varisty girls totally have the win in 'em, we just have to put it together.

    1. Win, win, win! I'm e-cheering for the girls!

  2. Magical yarn elves?!?! That is hilarious! I'll have to tell my mom that. :) Knitting is not hard at all, maybe a little at first but once you figure out what you are doing it's great. Almost meditative if the pattern you're working on isn't too hard. And your salad sounds delicious.

    On second thought, what my mom does with knitting does kind of make her a magical yarn elf. She is so talented with fiber arts. :)

    1. That's what I love about crocheting -- the meditative repetitiveness of it. I guess it's similar to footfalls in running.

      Your mom is very talented!

  3. That is one gorgeous salad of a lunch. I had a baked potato that I really don't think I cooked long enough. Haha. Followed by some chocolate covered espresso beans. I have to get my husband's cookies baked tonight! I have a hard time cutting myself away from blog reading!
