Zipped Up

Today was the end of the audit. It was so good to talk about all of the wonderful things that I do with my job. Watching unsuspecting and naive Americans come over for 41/2 months to discover who they priceless.

To get me through the day I had this awesome lunch of an organic chicken leg/thigh seasoned with Thai seasoning, 1/2 c. rice, and roasted butternut squash.

I snacked on 1/2 c. homemade apple sauce, 1/3. c. rice, 3 TB rice milk and cinnamon

P1013117I got home and CRANKED out my THIRD Tri workout.

  • 10 minutes of medium-high biking
  • 15 intervals: 20 hard, 40 sec medium


I WAS DEAD. My legs are sore and I was tired today. Working out had also made my crave carbs and honestly sugar. I actually think it’s because I am not drinking enough water–living off of coffee at work 😦

I came home and made such a yummy salad. Look I have a friend visit me.


My salad had:

  • Organic corn
  • Tuna cakes (4 oz tuna, 3 TB milk S/P, 1/4 c. gf flour–fried in 2 tsp EVOO and 2 tsp butter). It made 4 tuna cakes..I only ate 2 of them.
  • I made a dressing 2 tsp Tahini and 1 tsp rice milk and 1 tsp EVOO. 
  • JALAPENOS!!!!!!

I got a SWIMMING SUIT today & goggles and an awesome swimming cap.


I am starting my swimming tomorrow–YIKES! I love this suit because the back zips up!

Who really likes to try on a swimming suit?

However, after my post this morning about ending fat talk and starting LOVE talk I said to myself: ‘You know what Michelle, this suit is gonna look even better after all of your tri workouts.’

I hope that you help to support Fat Talk Free Week it’s such an important thing to do.

I am off to watch Gossip Girl and spread the love of my baking binge 🙂 Anzac Biscuits..if you haven’t tried them..then you should!

    I just stumbled upon your blog and glad I did. Seeing those anzac biscuits has made me homesick for Oz 🙂
    I love baking banana muffins as I always have a ridiculous amount of overripe bananas in the freezer that need to be used.

    Lovely suit!! So cute, and you have the proper attitude. You will look even better in it after you work out and get ready for the tri!!

    I love to bake cookies. They are small, and cute, and fabulous!

    I love baking muffins! I have the best muffin tin. It’s nothing fancy, but I love it. And I like controlling the portion size, too. With a cake or a bread loaf, I tend to want to cut myself a biiiig piece. With muffins, it’s already pre-portioned =D

    Speaking of muffins, I’ve been in a baking mood all day – I think I’m going to bake up some blueberry muffins when I get home tonight =P

    I like the suit! I think trying on one piece suits is sometimes even harder than trying on 2 piece suits because they always seem to suck you in in funny places and not in others. Or maybe that’s just me, who knows.
