yum. run. !!!


hey thanks.

hi hi hi!

first of off [i used to have a health teacher in high school that always said that. he was a total nutcase.] anyways..sorry. im definitely the type of gal who gets sidetracked. ALL. THE. TIME.

where was i? oh yes. first of off i would like to send out rays of sunshine to all you lovelies who have welcomed me thus far. [though im well aware its due to my shameless whoring across the interweb. blush.]

oh my goodness gracious i ran TEN miles today. on a treadmill no less.

i am woman. hear me roar.

but lets start with breakfast. shall we? which was interesting to say the least. i think knowing that it would be my first food on the blog caused me to be a little googlie in the kitchen this morning. aka the ingredients in my oats were:
-frozen banana.
-rolled oats.
-water.
-pinch of salt.
-cinnamon.
-cumin.

yeah. you definitely read that right. CUMIN. which i thought was the cinnamon. interestingly enough the containers dont even look remotely similar.

im a trooper so i ate them anyway.

i topped my awkward oats with a couple chopped up figlets and my greenish tinged nut butter. aka my homemade cashachio butter. [cashew/pistachio?]

cumin oats.

close.

i didnt actually eat the oats on the shelf but i was trying to set the mood?

and please disregard that fossil calendar that seems to think its octobertwentyfourth.

after some cumintastic digestion i hit up the arc to get in my long run for the day. ten gosh darn miles. on a treadmill. in an hourandeighteen minutes no less. thatsĀ under eightminute miles. i think maybe i had a faulty treadmill? haha. either way. distance pr. woo. go me. :]

obnoxiously enough the treadmills at the arc only go up to sixtyminutes. so at about sevenandahalf miles i had to start a new workout.

afterwards i did a good ten minutes of stretching and then headed back to my apartment. on my trek back i gobbled up a baggie of figlets. no picture. but im sure we all know what figs look like. if not. see breakfast.

i imagine ill have lots of unpictured bites here and there..though i do hope that blogging will help keep that in check. im for sure a nibbler. especially late at night. oops.

lunch was my pauper attempt at pitapit. nom.

pitah!

i toasted up a pita in my handydandy toaster oven. it included:
-spinach.
-chicken. lunch meat style.
-green pepper.
-pineapple.
-bbq sauce.

i sizzled it all up and it was damn good if i do say so myself.

alongside it i had a schplop of cottage cheese and a clem and some grapes. imagine about a thousand more grapes than that. i definitely munch while i cook.

after my eats i got a splendid yoga session in.

i opted for a twenty minute hip opening flow from yogadownload.

yogadownload was a total godsend for me over christmas break when it was far too frigid to run outside and i had no access to a gym. i love you yd!

i started nibbling and munching in excess a little while later. so i decided to make dinner.

here we have my first attempt at a tofu scramble. along with some berries and nectarine. and half a sandwich thin smeared with my cashachio butter and some jam. mmm mmm mmm.

scramble.

scramble.

the scramble turned out real good since i didnt have a recipe of sorts and never tasted it along the way. its got some asparagus. carrot. pepper. soy sauce. and a mishmosh of spices. NO cumin. oh yeah. and some tofu.

sorry my pictures are so awful. my current camera is one that my friend gave to me because hes a photography major at some hip school in chicago and was far too superior for the craptastic camera. im in the process of looking for a new camera but well..im a poor college gal so well see what happens. bear with me!

[for dinner i posted a picture with flash and one without. which do you prefer!? i was thinking the second one. sans flash.]

i have not eaten near enough today. but no worries. im sure my evening will be filled with countless nibbles and noshes. ill try to capture them on film but well see. im pretty proud of my first day efforts. you can pat me on the back now. ;]

in other news. whata you chaps wanna hear..erm..read/konw about me?

i was thinking i could post a bit about the little cupcake factory i work at. and maybe a blurb about our awesome new workout facility here on campus? but thats really all i got. i want to make this blog really open and such. lemme know what you guys wanna see!

over and out.

oh p.s. sorry im so flighty. and use poor grammar. haha.

actually. im not overly sorry. i sort of like my quirks. :]
