Attacking the pantry.

I am pretty sure my mom gets really happy when I suprise her and walk in her front door ready to take over her laundry room and I am ready to fill my empty stomach to the brim with all of her delicious food.  We usually do our laundry on Sunday but I needed to wash my favorite sports bra for the race this weekend.

Hairstyle and outfit of the week:   You know how it works, get home from work every day and change directly into the outfit of the week.  Wash it the next week if you feel like it (same goes for the hair).

The little one knows that her food isn’t safe when I am within 2 feet of her high chair.  Sorry about the ‘SEE FOOD’  I couldn’t figure out how to photoshop it out.

Billy treats his favorite cheese ball snacks as though it is an infant the way he cradles that jar and sings lullabies to it.

Billy continued the orange theme with some nachos and I felt like attempting to be healthy with a spinach/chicken/snap pea/mandarin orange/italian dressing salad.

For the last few days my sis has been telling me about the BEST ice cream combo in the world (don’t mind the note requesting whoever wants to eat her special ice cream to ask first;).

Coming from the ice cream expert (you know you can trust my opinion about this important matter), I really can’t get over how good it was.  Yes, I do realize that the last 5 posts have included ice cream.

What is YOUR workout today?

-A slow treadmill run for me this a.m.  Last run before Vegas Half (actually that is a lie, I might do 3 miles on Saturday).

What were the toppings of your last salad? I am always on the look out for new toppings to try!

Do you have your Christmas tree up?  Do you have a real or fake tree?

-Billy and I usually buy a real tree but I am not sure we will be this year.

That ice cream combo looks like the bees knees! Have you heard about the 12 days of Christmas Yogurtland is putting on? Go in today and get a card for free 2 ounces of yogurt for the first 12 days of December! SCORE!

My workout today is going down after my test! Not sure what I’m doing yet. :)
I had a Mexican salad the other day topped with feta, black beans, tomato, and onion with avocado poblano dressing yum!
My roommate and I put up our tree on Halloween! We are the biggest fans of Christmas! I have a fake one while I’m at school and a real one back home. I can’t wait to go home to sit by the fire, smell the fresh tree, and relax! I wish the semester would end already!

I didn’t know about that deal…thanks so much Britt…you know where I will be going today:) GOOD LUCK ON YOUR TEST and I love that you have had your tree up for so long. PS I need to make your salad!

MODERN FAMILY…my fave. Yeah, that ice cream looks and sounds pretty good. I have got to stop with all my Christmas baking, it’s just too hard to resist, not easy with kids and parties and all the things I have to bring crap too. I think it will have to be packaged (tightly) store bought from here on out. BTW, I only hope my kids use my laundry room when they get older. :) I tell my 9 year old he can live with me (and should) until he’s forty.

Reply

Don’t stop the Christmas baking:) I love that you want your kids to live with you forever…you are such a good mom!

I LOVE peppermint ice cream! My club made their own when I was little, actually they still do… I need to hit that up when I’m home for Christmas. And I’m about to go to 6 miles on the treadmill! I wanted to do a long run, but I have a 5K race Saturday and want to have fresh legs! I will be wearing a beard and santa hat after all…

Um…yeah you do, that sounds amazing. GOOD LUCK on your 5k…you are going to rock it!

Modern Family – love it. I totally have an outfit of the week. And pajamas of the week – ha!!

Gah that ice cream combo is just genius my friend! Does walking up and down the stairs repeatedly count as a workout? If so, that was mine….if not, today was a rest day :)! I just picked up rosemary-infused goat cheese, I’m excited to top my salad with it…something tells me it will be a winner! Have a great Thursday :D

Killer ice cream combo. This weekend I’m making chocolate peppermint cake balls. Should be delicious!

Anyways, my last salad had black beans, onions, peppers & hummus. Oh, some chicken too!

Reply

That sounds amazing…you better post your recipe! I forgot about hummus as a salad topper….I will be trying that again!

Today will be an easy 3 miles when I get home.

I have to say, yours is an “intense” salad! There IS lettuce, in there, right?? ;) My last salad had grilled chicken, dried cranberries, cashews, almond slivers, sunflower seeds (can you tell I like nuts?), and fresh strawberries.

No, I don’t have the tree up yet and it makes me very sad! I wanted to get it up early so I could enjoy it all month! This weekend, for sure.

Good luck in Vegas! You’re going to ROCK!! :)

There were a few leaves of spinach:) Okay, your salad sounds AMAZING!! Enjoy your three miles!

Trainer session this morning and then back later for a treadmill/speed workout (maybe).
There is nothing original about what I put on my salads.

We have YET to get our tree!! I’m almost considering skipping it this year – Clara’s at the age where she’ll def. pull it down. But the thought of not having one makes me sad. What to do?

Reply

stick a corral around it! my sister in law always does that to keep her kids off the tree. if you dont mind the way it looks… our girl is about to start crawling and i’m not sure if even a corral will keep her from pulling the tree over next year.

Reply

Not sure on my workout yet–it’s dumping snow outside, but not enough to snowshoe or anything, and I hate the treadmill! Might go to a spin class or something later.

I put up my tree on Sunday! It’s definitely real but with my entire fam being in the horticultural industry, fake trees aren’t really allowed :) Plus I absolutely LOVE the smell!!!

Reply

First of all – you look adorable even if a little crazy ;-) Do you really only wash your hair once a week? I wish mine would look that good after skipping just one day! And what brand is that sweater? I’ve been admiring it for several posts now :)

We had BOTH of those ice creams for Thanksgiving and I agree, it is an awesome combo!

My workout today will be 2 miles – hopefully. Last week I got in a 5k without ITB problems but then after 1.6 miles on Tuesday it started hurting… lots of anger there :-p Hopefully I can get to atleast 2 today and just walk after that.

Girl… I am so jealous and excited for you for your race this weekend! Can’t wait to hear and see pics all about it!! :) Good luck!!

O – and I had bocca crumbles on my salad (Im a vegetarian) and it was soooo good. Some taco seasoning cooked with the crumbles makes it like a taco salad, mmmmmm makes me want one right now even tho it is only 9am est!

So jealous of that ice cream right now…. :)

Pickles and beets! And of course hummus :)
We have had our tree up for 2 weeks…and it is fake, having a real one would mean waiting to put it up and I am too impatient ;)

My workout was a run on our terrible hotel treadmill again. Oh well.

I’m not sure what the last topping on my salad was, I think it was a oil and vinegar mixture.

Our tree is up and AWESOME. We chopped it down on Sunday, decorated it, then Bungee pulled it down, then we put it back up. I think it’s safe now :)

Reply

We’ll be getting our tree next weekend! We get a live tree, I love it!

My workout today will be a 2-2.5 mile run with mom, before cleaning my house for a CAbi party tonight.

My mom had knee surgery in July and really wanted to get back into running. I told her that I’d train with her and she’s running her first 5k this weekend with me!

I’m making cheese fondue I think for tonight’s party… now if only I can keep myself from inhaling the whole pot!

WOW…that is so neat. I am so excited that you will be running that 5k with her. SO COOL. Um, you definitely need to try a bowl or two of the fondue before you serve it:)

… or three? Haha, I looove cheese fondue. I’m making a chocolate fondue too but that doesn’t hold the appeal for me like the cheese one does! For dippables, we have granny smith apples, garlic bread bites and broccoli florets… those are healthy, right? hahaha

Successfully have gone to the gym before work [@ 5:30AM] the past three days- wahoo! Today I did 45 min on the elliptical and some abs…

What is YOUR workout today?
Most likely a slow four miles after work (favorite loop)

What were the toppings of your last salad? I am always on the look out for new toppings to try!
My answer is WAY too boring to add…

Do you have your Christmas tree up? Do you have a real or fake tree?
Totally up!! We have a real tree, but IMO it is only real by association since we were “forced” due to time constraints to buy from the tree lot.

The ice cream combo is haunting me already at 7:25 am. And I am thankful I am not the only one who avoids showers and clothing diversity. To that point, I also do laundry specifically to have my fav sports bra clean!

Reply

Enjoy your favorite loop today after work! That is awesome that your tree is already up and I think that you need to get some ice cream ASAP!! Good to know I am not alone in my hygiene situation.

um that ice cream looks DELICIOUS!!!!

modern family!

toppings on last salad: feta, edamame, bacon. yum.

i’m a real tree kind of girl. i love the smell and i like that they aren’t all perfect. my family only buys noble firs. but this year we went and cut down a little tree on our mapleton farm and… it doesn’t smell at all! i’m so sad. maybe i’ll stop watering it and let it die and convince b to buy me a new one that smells good.

workout is 3 mile jog around the neighborhood with baby g- hoping it wont snow. yet.

good luck in vegas!
ps how did your hairline fractures feel? b thinks he might have one.

Reply

HEY YOU!! Seriously, there is nothing better than the smell of a real tree! AHHHHH you might have a stress fracture? Mine was crazy painful and especially if I jumped up…the landing hurt really bad. I could barely stand on one leg at a time and had to lay down to put on my pants. I am praying that yours isn’t serious and please keep me updated!

PPS Bacon should always be on salads.

We are going to get a REAL tree this weekend! i cannot waaaaait. it will be the first year in probably 5 years we have had a real tree. I am thinking about spraying it with fake snow because this is my first xmas without snowy alaska. weird

you are watching modern family, SCORE! <3

workout today will be 5 miles of hills on the treadmill. hopefully this run goes better then yesterdays!

toppings on my last salad…my last one was at outback, which was awesome…especially bc i took your advice and used the tangy tomato dressing, party in my mouth!!

no christmas tree up yet…we are very undecided because we know as soon as we put one up, the cats will probably climb up into it and destroy it…trying to work around it, haha

Reply

Bummer about yesterday’s run but today’s WILL be awesome right:) I LOVE outback salad’s and I am so happy that you loved the dressing…I want to learn how to make it myself! Maybe put a fence around your tree;) Have an amazing day Theresa!

Reply

Ohhhhmygosh I LOVE peppermint!!! My favorite thing about Christmas!! next to everything being lit up with sparkles and good cheer :-D Another *fantastic* combo is Fresh Strawberry/Peppermint! the kind of Strawberry ice cream with strawberry halves in it!!

My workout last night was The Sunset Workout from ToneItUp.com and the first move was AWESOME! it was like a pike jump thingy… no run yesterday bc I’ve gotten a really bad cold/throat and didn’t wanna push it :(

NEWEST thing I’ve tried was making WHEAT BERRIES! They’re kinda chewy and I love it and I haven’t put them on a salad yet but I’m going to.. they’re a super grain like quinoa only I think I like them far far better.

My roommate and I have a mini tree.. and I also have a tiny silver sparkle tree with like 4 branches that looks like the Charlie Brown tree hahaha

P.S. I love that you wear that lululemon jacket all the time – let’s be real, when you have a new fav jacket it just gets worn EVERY day!

I am going to have to try the strawberry combo…thanks!!! I am going to try toneitup.com….sounds crazy hard! I have never eaten wheat berries…dang you are giving me all sorts of great ideas to try! Thanks Brittany!

Reply

Modern Family! It is my favorite show as well as The Big Bang Theory.

Workout: 5.5 miles of Speedwork on the treadmill this morning. I was supposed to do 6, but I ran out of time so I skipped the last half mile cooldown.

Last topping on salad: I had a salad yesterday with lettuce, celery, cheddar cheese and grilled chicken. I know, not very exciting, but it was all in the fridge.

Christmas tree: My husband and I bought an pre-lit artificial one last year and it is already up! I love it! I was against them for a while, but I like that we will be able to enjoy it longer. If you use multi-color lights on a tree it makes a HUGE difference if there are white lights mixed in. Not all sets have this and it really makes the tree brighter.

Reply

AWESOME WORKING!! You speedster. Cheddar cheese is an awesome salad topper. I am so happy your tree is already up and ready to go! Have an amazing day Crissy!

omg omg omg best ice cream combo ever!!! I mean, peppermint ice cream on top of a real brownie is good, so obviously that would be an epic combo. I’ve got the Edy’s (maybe it’s Dreyer’s out where you are?) Peppermint and after 2 days its like halfway gone. I need to find a way to keep my dad from eating it all before I get to it tonight!

When we run out of the brownie ice cream I will be trying your idea of putting the peppermint on top of a real brownie! HA….don’t you dare let anyone eat your ice cream (except for me maybe:)

I have started pool running this week and I love it! It’s such a different workout. My coach does not want me running on land for a couple weeks after the 50 miler so that I am fresh for Boston training. Pool running is the next best thing!

I had a salad at a restaurant last week that was to die for…roasted butternut squash, cashews, parmesan, winter greens, cranberry-balsamic….yummmm.

Reply

Jessica!! That is so so cool that you are enjoying pool running so much. Your coach is smart and I think I might try that before my next marathon cycle so I can start with super fresh legs! Um….your salad is making me drool!

ok don’t judge me….
apples, cheddar cheese, pretzels…and broccoli.

I need to try that peppermint ice cream!

My workout today is going to be some living room yoga and ab work. I’m on about hour 14 right now of my 16 hour workday and then I need to be back for another 16 about 7 hours after I leave (crazy, right?), so sleep seems like a much wiser use of my time than a long workout.

What were the toppings of your last salad? I am always on the look out for new toppings to try!
I’m pretty boring. My last salad had pears, grilled portobellas, grapes, and sunflower seeds with ginger dressing.

Do you have your Christmas tree up? Do you have a real or fake tree?
I just started doing a tiny bit of Christmas decorating the other day, but I think I may actually skip a tree this year. I like real ones so much more but I’ve been doing fake lately for the convenience.

Reply

haha modern family!

I picked up some tart frozen yogurt, like the kind pinkberry and I assume yogurtland has – it’s dangerous, and not safe in the house!

Reply

Mmm, peppermint ice cream sounds delish! No workout today … yet. I was too cozy this morning to get up and run in the cold, so I’m planning on doing something exercise related when I get home from work. We’ll see if it happens. (IT MUST!)

Reply

Lately I’ve been obsessed with butternut squash, brussel sprouts, and cranberries on my salad. I also love to throw fruit in there when I can (and when I think it might not be a weird taste combination).

I hope to get out for a run this evening. It’s getting tougher and tougher sicne it’s basically dark at 4:30pm.

Reply

We used to buy those industrial sized tubs of cheese balls for my daughter when she was little. She had perpetually orange fingers!

My workout today is a 2 mile run after work. It finally stopped raining/snowing so I’m excited to get outside.

I love chopped hardboiled eggs on a salad. I also like cucumbers, chick peas, quinoa or pearl couscous, artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes and, of course, lots of cheese!

We have one tree up. We bought a fake tree this year to put up in our living room and we will put a real tree in the family room, probably next weekend. I grew up with a real tree every year…I can’t imagine not having one!

Reply

We’re going Friday after my daughter’s school gets out to pick out a tree from a nearby Christmas tree farm (Peltzer Pines) …I’ve had this fake tree sitting in a box in our garage and I dread setting that monstrosity up.

Okay I know I’m going to get some weird looks on this, but I cut up leftover pizza slices and use that as my salad topper – the more pizza toppings on the leftover, the better the salad topping. (Some broccoli florets might make it on top of there too – depends on how much room is left in the bowl)

Reply

I’m obsessed with dicing apples and putting them in my salads now! Such a fun combo! Pepperoncinis are also a wonderful add :)

First day of advent calendars!!! You bet I just ate my piece at 10:38am!

MODERN FAMILY!!!! Love it!

My workout today is teaching an abs/core class and then teaching a zumba class.

My last salad was at Jason’s Deli, so I think it had every single vegetable they had available, hummus, and slight drizzle of balsamic and light honey mustard (so good together!). Oh yes, it also had some nuts and craisins. :)

I have a fake tree, but it is not going up this year. We are going to MEXICO for Christmas, so we won’t be home to celebrate. I am super pumped about a warm sunny Christmas on the beach with my family!!! This also means I don’t have to go through the whole “jamming the tree back into the box that it could not have possibly originaly been in because now it just won’t fit” deal.

You had me at peppermint ice cream–may favorite holiday treat! I’m going to do an easy run on the treadmill this afternoon.

Our place is pretty small, so we have decorations, but no tree :( My family grew up with a real one during the holidays though. Loved the process of picking one out, decorating, watering it…ah, the holidays!

Reply

I love decorating for Christmas, we have a fake tree, living in the middle of nowhere there isn’t a huge selection of ‘real’ trees, the grocery store usually gets a few in but they are pretty sad looking.

I haven’t had a salad in weeks, but usually it’s cucumbers, red peppers, feta, chia seeds and homemade balsamic.

Cannot wait to meet you Saturday, I am traveling with a crowd, but surely I can talk them into some ice cream, and Hungry Runner Girl!! I know one of my friends will be up for it, on our last run together we were talking about you!! She reads you too :)

I used to do that to my parents too!! but my new apt came with a washer/dryer so now I just steal her food. No lie, on Sundays she packs a target bag (sometimes 2) or groceries to give to me!

my run was a sloooow 5 miles. darn taper and the need to go slow. I hadn’t run in 3 days it made me think of you. I was going crazy, I cant imagine how you feel being on that routine for so long! that takes some big will power!

I seriously love you for showing me this ice cream combo. Chocolate and peppermint is soooo good!
I had an awesomeee 6 mile run. It was beautiful outside! :D
I went to panera for lunch and tried the new Turkey one? It had pears, walnuts I think, dried cherries, and gorgonzola. It was good but I could totally re-make it at home and make it even better. I liked the pears and dried cherries though!
I don’t have it up yet but I will soon!! We have a fake one. I think I’m just going to get a tree smelling candle :)

Wow, we are totally the same person. I always have an outfit of the week. Everyday when I get home, I change into it. This week it is a pair of sweatpants, a long sleeve T, and a hoodie, because it is COLD in our house.

My last workout for about a week (Cardio anyway) was elliptical and I decided to walk on the treadmill since I was getting surgery anyway haha.

Salad topping = orange slices on a spinach salad. It’s really good, I swear! I don’t believe you like blue cheese, but I swear it’s a good combo with pecans and the oranges!

PS. I have this recipe for mint brownies that I made (literally) 5 times in a month last Christmas. If you would like it, let me know! It’s SO easy.
