First things first – if you haven’t read my Fitnessista guest post on Weight Watchers click *here*. There are some really good points and inspiring stories in the comments section! I also added the text to a new tab at the top called “Why Weight Watchers?”.
Remember how I found a nest in our of our backyard trees? Well, now it has eggs in it!
I think those are the coolest color of blue. I was ridiculously excited about this over the weekend, but somehow forgot to show Dan. I took him out there last night, but mama bird was there and she was not happy. She and a few of her bird friends starting circling us within seconds. Dan and I quickly raced inside. Birds are cute, but also kind of scary.
I know that we need to leave the next alone from now on – I wouldn’t want the mamma to abandon the eggs because we got too close.
I am looking forward to seeing little baby birds (from afar) in the next 12 to 14 days!
Now I feel a little guilty about the eggs I had for breakfast. They were pretty good scrambled with spinach and sliced bell pepper.
Lunch was one of the most filling and flavorful I have had in quite some time. I made *this recipe* for Thai Style Spicy Cabbage Slaw with Mint and Cilantro.
I headed to Fo Thai after work to pick up Dan’s birthday dinner to go. I think the name of that restaurant is very clever. It makes me think of bow-ties, faux Thai, and Pho. Genius.
While I was waiting for our order to be prepared I saw pineapple curry gelato with the symbol indicating spiciness on the dessert menu. I had to order it. The bartender gave me a weird look and asked, “are you sure?"
When the waiter brought it out he, along with the two people at the bar, watched me take my first bite. I thought it was delicious! It was like a frozen curry sauce with a little bit more sweetness, but just as savory and spicy. One of the most unique foods I have tried. After I told them that the bartender sighed with relief and said that 90% of the people who order it send it back. Craziness. I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite.
I ordered oven roasted chicken with Thai eggplant and curry sauce for my dinner.
I was really disappointed when I saw that there were no purple eggplants in there. However, after a little research found that Thai eggplants are green. Glad I didn’t call and complain.
Since I had dessert before dinner, after dinner I snacked on a few strawberries with Truvia while watching the birthday boy shoot some hoops.
Then I had some popcorn before bed (6).
When looking at mapmyrun.com a few weeks ago, I noticed a loop around my house that I didn’t know existed. Yesterday I left without my phone to go check it out. To make a long story short, the road turned into a blocked off road, which turned into a gravel road, which turned into a gravel trail, which turned into what seemed to be abandoned train yard. Then, one of the trains starting moving and then stopped seconds later. Then it did it again. Creepy. I gave up on the loop and turned back around. Based on the time I was gone, I ran a little over 5 miles. Next time I will know to test drive any new routes from mapmyrun.com.
