Cookie Dough

Last night, I made a ridiculous amount of cookies. As in, this tupperware times two!


I ate about four cookies worth of dough until I had a tummy ache. It was so good and hard to resist! I can’t wait to get these cookies out of here!

As Lindsey said, “life is not complete without cookie dough!” 😉


I was up pretty late with my baking adventures, so I slept in. I hit the gym for a quick 20 minute elliptical session and some arm strength training moves.

It was the perfect excuse to catch up on my Runner’s World reading!


On my way out, I left an Operation Beautiful note on the bathroom mirror. I haven’t left one in a while!


After my strength session, I was craving protein! With our massive Sam’s club carton of eggs, I figured omelets were the perfect solution!


My omelet had:

  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg white
  • tons of spinach
  • tomato
  • onion
  • cheddar cheese



Have a great Labor Day weekend!

Purple Oats

I actually slept in this morning until 7:30! Well… I woke up at 5, hugged Jason goodbye, and fell back asleep.

Once I was up, I had half a z-bar and headed to the gym for a speed workout. I’m not a huge treadmill fan, but it gets the job done when I need to be quick.

I ran 3.5 miles in about 31 minutes. I started at 6.0 for the first mile as a warm-up, and then jumped around ever 0.25 miles from 7.0 to 8.0, 6.5, 7.5… etc. for the rest of the workout. It felt great and I watched the news the whole time.

Once I got back, I was in a hurry. I have a dentist appointment in 20 minutes from now! I made oatmeal while I showered (benefit of microwaving!):


My oatmeal had:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 TBL flax
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • sprinkle of walnuts!


Once I mixed it up, it turned purple!


It tasted perfect! Such a good combination of flavors!

I’m off to the dentist. I have to get a small cavity filled. I’m like SUPER nervous because I hate the dentist. Last time I cried the whole way home when I found out I had to come back for this.  😦
