Yogurt Thief!

Whomp whomp!

Quick run in this afternoon to tell you about my total office foul.

I was CRAVING a scone this morning (Carbo load for my long run tomorrow, right?).  But I talked myself out of it because I knew I had snacks left over at work from the week…including that delicious yogurt that I had yesterday.

So…I talked myself out of the scone and right when my snack time of 10 AM hit, I went to go get my yogurt and…

IT WAS GONE!

My yogurt was stolen!  What a bummer — I will find the thief.   Oh the joys of office environments.  Ironically enough this isn’t the first time I’ve had my snacks SO RUDELY stolen from work, but each time it’s been my yogurt!  I guess people like my taste in the good stuff….

Yogurt thief…I will find you!

Question of the Day: 

Does anyone else who work in an office environment have an issue with their food going missing?

TGIF

Good Morning and Happy Friday All 🙂

Last night ended with Zach and I enjoying the last of the cheesecake for dessert while I blogged and he started the “in and out of sleep” process.

I  must say, I was pretty impressed.  He made it until 10, and had been up since 230 AM MST.  Needless to say he is exhausted and will hopefully catch up on some much needed rest tonight.

I forgot last night…

I posted pictures of our dinner, but didn’t put any kind of recipe with it.

Beautiful Homemade Salad:

DSC_0625

1 head of rainbow chard

1/2 large yellow pepper

1 cup garden cherry tomatoes

1 bunch of garden basil

1/2 orange carrot (steamed)

1/2 purple carrot (steamed)

1/2 white carrot (steamed)

1 yellow beat (steamed)

lots of ground salt to taste

DRESSING:

2 tablespoons EVOO

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 tablespoon of spicy mustard

I chopped up the chard, and then put half of the dressing directly on it and put it back in the fridge to set.  I then started working on all of the other veggies, including getting the carrots and beat into the steamer to cook through.  Once everything was chopped and prepared, I put it all in the large salad bowl and tossed it together, adding a little more dressing and hot sauce to my own personal taste 🙂

The salmon that I had on top of my salad was just a frozen piece that required 22-24 minutes at 375 in the oven. I’m not going to mention the brand as they were not very good to be honest.

Zach grilled his bison on our large George Foreman for about 10 minutes and just like that, everything was ready.

This morning, thanks to it being my rest day, and thanks to Zach being amazing and taking Gus duties, I was able to sleep in until 720.   Glorious.

I always feel a little anxious about rest days, as I don’t burn out that energy working out, but man the sleeping in part sure is nice :).

So now it’s work until 5 — then date night tonight!  We haven’t chosen our location yet, but I’m excited to get out with my favorite boy 🙂

Question for the day:  Do you enjoy rest days or are you sometimes anxious to work out?

Back to the Norm

Quick check in for the evening 🙂

Zach made it home safe and sound.  Yay

I don’t know who was more excited that Zach was back home:  Gus or Zach?

Nothing overly exciting from work today:  snacks were similar to what they have been all week

Well…a different mix of the same general snack.  A much better version of yogurt (when you consider the ingredients) and the trail mix from our welcome bag from the wedding this weekend.  I ❤ free snacks!

I didn’t get a picture of the “break room today.”  That’s not because there weren’t temptations there.  It’s actually because there were MORE temptations outside of the break room

Turning down Einstein bagels did prove to be more of a challenge than the normal Archer Farms cookies at breakfast time.  Either way….I powered through and stuck with the (arguably) healthier snacks.

I was a bit more excited to get home tonight than I have been, as you may imagine.  I was greeted by Zach’s lovely face…and this:

Zach is more exciting than laundry.    On top of the laundry and Zach, I came home to

No, not August butt (well,  yes I guess August butt, but more importantly…) a wedding gift in the mail!  August loves boxes, both rubbing the outside and playing hide and seek inside.

A large food processor!   YAAAY!

After we caught up for a bit, worked on laundry, and opened up our wonderful shower gift (thanks Aunt Judy and Uncle Jim!) it was time to prep dinner.

As I mentioned, I was looking forward to falling back into our more normal routine and make a nice meal at home.  On the menu:  salad with salmon for me, and salad and bison steak for Zach.

My dinner 🙂

Zach talked me into opening up a bottle of wine, a Malbec and it was DeLisH!

After a long week, sometimes it’s nice to just unwind together with a glass of wine 🙂

And now, I just got back from a nice walk with Gus and am going to enjoy the rest of the night with Zach, before he crashes (he had to get up at 230 MST this morning to catch his flight on the east coast.  He’s struggling).

Oh….and dessert 🙂

Have  a great night all!

Question of the Night:  Do you look have a “norm” or “routine” that you have at home?  Do you miss it when you are busy/traveling?
