Even in sweating it's earliest days, I wasn't really one for posting pictures of my meals. There were a couple weeks during my first year of grad school where it was a bit of a fad for me, but other than that, I usually only post the most notable of meals here.
As part of the 28 Day Blog Challenge , one of my goals was to participate in more blogging communities, and one of the foremost on my list was #wiaw -- "what I ate Wednesday." So you all get to enjoy my extremely fascinating day and the fuel that got me through it. Lucky you!
(Interestingly enough, this post comes on the day Katy Widrick, host of the #28DBC, posted about how lifecasting is soon-to-be dead . I think it's been dead for me the entire time I've been blogging, but I'm up for giving anything a shot!)
Jake and I woke up at 7:15 and went for a walk. He was mesmerized by a squirrel
He seriously stood like this for a few minutes. Three-legged dog anyone? ;)
Mario Plate again. Trying to reduce dirty dishes!
Jake also had a carrot! I try to give him 1/3 a carrot every day to help him clean his teeth and get some veggies. He loves them!
In the afternoon I walked to our local Caribou Coffee and did some work on my thesis while sipping a Hazelnut "Northern Lite Latte." I love doing work in coffee shops. I can't really explain it, especially since I have an espresso machine at home that makes healthier, tastier lattes (for the most part). I think it's something about the perfect atmosphere or noise level... and the pressure to "look" like you're doing work for everyone who's watching you :)
Jake and I went for a long walk before dinner. Mike is at a work dinner tonight, so I was on my own. I heated up some leftover stir-fry from last night, made simply with some tofu, Japanese garlic sauce, and Trader Joe's pre-assembled fresh stir-fry veggies. So easy and quick!
Even better- so little clean up! All mixed in the blender!
The finished product, on a very very old cookie sheet.
