One Foot in Front of the Other

Hey all,

Long day today!

I had some of that harvest porridge I made yesterday for breakfast.  The recipe said I made 2 servings, but it’s more like 3 — it’s pretty filling!:

I know it doesn’t look that appetizing in this picture, but trust me, it’s yummy.

After breakfast I headed over to Bar Method to work the desk for a few hours.  Business there is crazy!  All the classes are full, the phone rings off the hook…  Pretty soon us desk people are going to need our own assistants!

Anyway, I grabbed a quick snack while I worked:

Yes, I cheated — that’s yesterday’s picture.  I didn’t take a shot of my egg and orange today because it was so darn busy.  Sorry!

After my shift, I ran over to The San Francisco Soup Company and grabbed a bowl of their organic smoky split pea (yum):

I managed to wolf down almost all of this before heading into the 3pm class.

I’ve been really going for it this week in class — you know, those weeks where you really push yourself while you’re exercising?  Well, let me tell you, my legs are tired!  This didn’t stop me from going for a walk with KC after he got home from work though.

I had a snack first (of course):

We thought Seuss might want to put her leash on and come with us:

She wasn’t amused:

She promptly hopped off the couch and popped her “safety collar” off.  I’d like to rename the safety collar the “you got out of that way too easy” collar.  Really Seuss?  What a beez.

We decided to walk up to Piedmont and look at the houses.  There are some super cute houses over in Piedmont — too bad I don’t have a spare $800K lying around…  Our walk was fun and it was nice to get outside, even though it was a little chilly!

By the way, walking with a friend or your significant other is a great way to get some exercise into your day.  Not to mention, it’s kind of just a nice way to spend time with someone.

After getting home from our walk, I threw dinner together:

Grilled Steelhead trout with thyme-scented quinoa and roasted vegetables.

This is super simple to make.  I threw 1 cup of red quinoa into the rice cooker with 2 cups of water, a little sea salt, and a couple thyme sprigs, and let it do its thing.  I chopped up whatever veggies I had on hand (broccoli, bell pepper, zucchini, crimini mushrooms, and a vidalia onion), tossed it all with some olive oil, salt and pepper, and threw it into the oven at 425° for 20-25 minutes.

The fish I just sprinkled with salt and pepper and grilled it in a little olive oil.  Easy and delicious!  A well-balanced meal chock full of Omega-3’s.

My plate:

After dinner, KC and I cleaned the apartment.  I know, exciting.  The nice part about having a tiny apartment is being able to clean the whole thing in under an hour.  The faster this place is clean, the happier I am.  I hate cleaning, but I sure love a clean apartment!

Alright, well I think there’s some Ben & Jerry’s calling my name from the freezer…

Chelsea, come eat the cookie dough out of this pint.”

Yep, definitely calling my name.

Hope your week is going well.  Tomorrow’s Thursday!  Almost Friday, which is almost the weekend!  Woo hoooo!

(Well, if you can’t get excited about it, I figured I’d do it for you.)

Ok off to rescue the ice cream from the freezer.  (It gets so lonely in there…)  Night!
