Breakfast for dinner and my first day of "non-religious" lent

Hey guys!  I had a great day today.  Today is my first official day of "non-religious lent" as I call it, and it has been a success!  I know, I's only day one, but I am still optimistic.  As part of my internal cleansing I have started using the dry sauna at the gym after my workouts as a way to sweat out my toxins and clear out my skin and it feels great...why haven't I used this before!?  Well, today after class I went to the gym and did my workout and then sat in the sauna for 15 minutes.  I felt so good and clean afterwards, I think I will do it every day after I work out.  I never knew how good I could feel after just sitting and sweating and stretching, it was great! 
I injured  my knee yesterday when I was doing squats and was not able to run today.  I swear I am falling apart!  Two weeks ago, I re-sprained my right ankle, hurt my left foot (all on the same run) and then yesterday I hurt my left knee!  What the hell!?  Oh well, I am going to take about a week off from running and just cross train until my knee feels hard as it is to not run I need to listen to my body.
Today after my workout I went to this awesome little cafe with a friend of mine from my biology class and we sat and studied for about three and a half hours.  I got a lot accomplished!  I got some of my homework done and got a good start on my research project!  Woohoo!
When I came home I was itching to do something other than sit on my butt so I made an awesome dinner for Tim and myself.  I made him blueberry pancakes with apple smoked bacon and hashbrowns.  I made myself two little mini-blueberry pancakes and a boca burger patty, which tasted like cardboard but I needed to protein so I just ate it anyways.  Oh, and I had a glass of wine with dinner, and a cup of Cascade Fresh lemon yogurt for desert. This is the finished product minus about 3 pieces of bacon that Tim couldn't wait to eat. There's Tim..."Can you please take the picture so I can eat my tasty dinner!?" hehe There's my doesn't look as good as Tim's did, but it was still tasty and I enjoyed it. :) There's Spike wondering where his dinner is. I swear he thinks he is a dog because he will sit at our feet at the dinner table or in the living room if we are eating in front of the tv, and beg for a bite of whatever we are eating. He will try everything too. One time I gave him spicy salsa that was almost too hot for me, and he loved it...boy did that one backfire. Here's Princess Molly sitting at the dinner table waiting for her dinner. Tim got up for a few minute to go get something and she was right up in his chair waiting to be served. Our cats have the best personalities. Hope you enjoyed the pictures of my tasty dinner! There will be more to come next week. I work a crazy schedule this weekend so I don't know if I will have time to blog with all of the homework I will be catching up on. Catch up with you all soon! D


  1. Hi. I'm catching up on your posts. Your bookmark got moved somewhere and I couldn't find it and then I realized that all I had to do was click "followers" on my blog. Yay! I'm so glad you're looking forward to celebrating lent. I'm also spiritual & not religious, but have enjoyed celebrating lent many years, but am not doing so this year. Anyway, good luck with all your homework!!! And I hope you enjoy your Yogi IQ tea. I have that too!!

  2. Hi again, I just wanted to let you know I moved my blog to word press so my new address is:

    Also, if you click on the "Yoga" tab there is info about starting a home practice with yoga because some asked me a question about it a little while ago. Have a great day :-)
