Scott & I did a nice 9.7 mile bikeride through Richardson today! It would've been closer to 10.5 miles, but my iPod was dying so I just turned of RunKeeper early. It's pretty much the coolest app on my phone- it lets you track your pace, mileage, incline and calories burned (although I feel that number is way off on mine!). I like it much more then my Nike Plus and it's much more accurate apparently (and cheaper!) :)

We watched the Biggest Loser tonight- made me cry as usual! Agh!! I thought what the one team at the end did was very sweet. (No spoilers here!!) We also ate some pizza-I had my first meat in almost a week- Pepperoni. Probably not the smartest nutritional choice...and I still feel it like a log in my stomach. :( Not a good feeling. I think this week has taught me a lot about myself and what my body responds to. It's always good to know. Was I made to be more of a veggie eater rather then meat? It is starting to maybe seem that way. I need to join Caitlin on her Learn to Luv Veggies Challenge.

There has to be balance in health. I find myself getting a little too hung up on calories and points and miles and fat grams and "don't eat" and "must eat"s. :(

How do you find the balance in nutrition and fitness?

Serious obsession

I'm totally in LOVE with cabbage chopped salad!!!! Yummmm!! I'm on day 6 of no meat. Definitley easier then I thought. I havent really craved meat and my energy level has been great. :) also lost 5 pounds which is always a perk. ;)Last nights dinner was really yummy. Scott & I threw together a quick dinner at 8, we were SO hungry!! We sipped some red wine (it's called America's Favorite Chillian Wine), quite delish!! We made some whole wheat pasta, with broccoli & marinara sauce. :) then we made this nsanely delish Asian cabbage salad!

Asian Chop Salad:
1/2 head red cabbage, chopped
1/2 head white cabbage, chopped
1/4 cup of chopped or sliced almonds
1/4 cup of ground flax ( I ground mine in my blender)
1/4 cup of crispy rice noodles
1/4 cup of Asian sesame Ginger dressing. (store bought).

It was sooo good- we enjoyed that while watching the Dallas Cowboys game! Go Cowboys! :) my husband is so amazing. So adorable, so incredibly supportive. :)

What's your favorite chopped salad recipe?

Thursday's Daily Wear

Quick post before I run to work. I wanted to do a daily wear post since I happen to really love my outfit today. I've been spending a lot more time putting together clothing, cleaning out my closet and donating what I don't need. I've gotten pretty creative in the last week. Here's what I put together for today.

Today I have on a skirt from Harold's (ya'll remember them? Went out of business last year sad), a tank top from forever 21, Steve Madden navy silk heels, and my new white cashmire sweater (is that what you call it?). I'm also featuring another new piece, a tres adorable glass strawberry neckalace from forever 21. :)

That's all for is! :(

It's Fall- Scarves & Flowers! :)


Today I had a WONDERFUL day! :) Work was fine, nothing dramatic which is always good. The real fun, though, started post work when I headed to TJ Maxx to find a blue plaid pashmina that I can't get out of my mind. Imagine my delight when I saw- literally- a WALL full of scarves!!!

Isn't it glorious? I've already talked with my sweet husband about a similar concept. We have a spare bedroom that he has so graciously allowed us to convert into a "closet room"...more on that later. Regardless...super excited for my Pashmina display- even though it will be much smaller then The Wall!

I was looking through the Ralph Lauren catalouge today- saw the most beautiful bag! Unfortionatly it's priced right under a mere $17,000. Yes, that's right- $17,000! Like a car. It's beautiful, possibly the most beautiful bag I have ever I will be searching for a similar one- Hopefully a little closer to my price range. :)

So anyways, after my shopping trip I headed home with some nice fall essentials- white silk sweater, brown plaid pants, a Ralph Lauren cream egyptian cotton button down, teal tights, black tights and 2 blue plaid items- a Pashmina and a ruffled, scrunchy one. J'Adore! I walked in the door and my sweet husband brought me a glorious fall surprise. :)

Thank you Honey! I love you. Happy fall to you too. :)


This is fun!
