oh.... hello

wow. today i feel like poo. blame t.o.m.

t.m.i? maybe! too many acronyms? definitely!

last night my boyfriend and i had a nice date. we watched ferris beuller's day off at the movie theatre, and then he made me a delicious dinner of whole wheat spaghetti, meatballs, and vegetables with cheese. the meatballs were from sobey's and called "chicken and cheese." interesting texture... different than a beef or turkey ball, but still good. and only 100 calories and low fat for 4 of them. and they were reasonably sized balls, too. ok, enough ball talk.

for some reason, i have a problem with red pasta sauces. i like the taste, but sometimes they are too saucey. i like minimal sauce, or no sauce even. my bf and i compromise by using a can of tomato paste instead of sauce. it's flavourful, but not too saucey. perfecto! now i think he likes it better than regular sauce too.

this morning i left his abode at 7am, rode my bike home (about 3 miles, mostly downhill though), went swimming for 30 minutes, and then got ready for working in the burbs. i had a big carby breakfast. i am craving carbs like a crazy carb... lover. tonight i am hoping to get day 2 week 3 couch to 5k in, but we'll see based on how my lower half is feeling.

Look at you and all of your mini-meals!

hehe, I bought some of those tiny bananas and I'm just waiting for them to ripen. How cute!

You know you don't have to count a point for your baby carrots unless they are cooked, right? Still a zero point veggie when they are raw!
