I am no fashion expert, but is “hair tinsel” really the up-and-coming trend!??!
I have been seeing quite a few girls at the elementary schools I teach at–and even a couple of parents–sport these pieces of shiny flare speckled throughout their locks. Has anyone else seen these?
Living in Alaska, I feel so isolated, so please tell me what is trending right now! I believe Toms are popular right now as well as headbands with big bows, but what else?? Help, I live in an isolated ice box called Alaska right now!!
Sometimes I feel obligated to blog, but yesterday I had no desire to write a post, so I didn’t. It was a good feeling!! I actually spent the evening watching TV with Craig. . . . well, kind of–I still had to get up during the commercial breaks to do things. I am too much of a busy-body!!
Here’s a few highlights from my Sunday:
I made a Green Monster smoothie and added a kiwi. (I got the idea from a Runner’s World magazine.)
1/2 cup milk + 1 kiwi + 1/2 frozen banana + 2 cups spinach + 1 Tablespoon soy protein powder
I enjoyed this protein smoothie after my long run on Sunday along with a Peanut Butter-Banana Muffin that I pulled out of the freezer.
Workouts from last week (1/24 – 1/30):
Tuesday: ran 5 miles + 45 minutes lifted weights at the gym
Wednesday: ran 7 miles (a.m.) + ran 3 miles (p.m.)
Thursday: ran 7 miles + 90 minutes yoga
Friday: ran 4 miles
Saturday: ran 6 miles + 45 minutes lifted weights at the gym
Sunday: ran 12 miles
Since I did a long run yesterday, I took the day off today. It was SO nice to be able to sleep in until 6 a.m. (instead of 5 a.m.) and get nearly 9 hours of sleep. When I am running and training a lot, I definitely need the extra sleep!
Tonight I actually made dinner for us. I am pretty sure I didn’t make a meal at all last week.
(Based off this recipe.)
3 whole wheat tortilla shells
4 turkey bacon strips, diced
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon each salt, pepper and paprika
1. Grease a pie plate and line with the tortilla shells.
2. In a small skillet, cook the bacon, onion, and red pepper until vegetables are tender. Stir in spinach.
3. Spoon spinach mixture into pastry.
4. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, cottage cheese, cheese, and seasonings; pour over spinach mixture.
5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
Overall, I thought the quiche turned out really well. I loved all the spinach in it and lean protein.
The one change I would make would be to reduce or eliminate the oregano because the flavor from it was pretty overpowering.
I’m enjoying a little Bachelor action tonight and will be hitting the hay after that.
