Quick and Full of Pictures

What up party people.  This little blogger is double “t” tired, as I only got about 3 hrs of sleep last night…was just all over the place, tossing and turning.  So early  night for this one!

But, after my rainy post yesterday I wanted to share with you a few other things!

I had a snack in the afternoon, and check out my phone sitting in my pen holder.  That is how I connect to the internet on my computer so I can blog for all you pretty people.  See, I love you all that much.

I went out for a pretty good and speedy run last night, when there was finally a let up in the rain.  Unfortunately it started again while I was running, and since I ran to get my bike, it was even worse when I was biking home.  I was a soaking mess by the time I got home.  But it was fun.  Ran I don’t know how far but it was 41 minutes total.  And I ran certain parts faster than others as it was kind of a there and back…and I was timing myself all over the place. Now this, is when I wish I had a GARMIN.

And of course what is better on a rainy day: SOUPPortabello mushroom, bell peppers, onions, and a Quorn Cutlet.  OH yeah…

From one of my best blogger buddies: Miss Gliding Calm.  Such a pretty homemade card..

And this one comes from my Grandma Gwen!  It had her famous pb filled pb cookies, popcorn, more pb, some sort of sweet bread, granola bars, goldfish, a birthday card and a bit of $$$. :)  I LOVE YOU GRANDMA!!  MISS YOU!

anyhow, bad night of sleep, wake up to a good breakfast!  Bananas are going bad fast, so oats w/ banana, cranberries and pb. Yum!

Bought some veggie chips from the bulk bin at WF last weekend, so I dug into those.  They were ok.  I don’t like sweet vegetables and many of them were (sweet potato, acorn squash, etc.) but the other pieces like different potatoes and green beans were great!

And the rest of my lunch: giant peach and apple

And a flat out wrap with lots of spinach, tomato, mustard and chik’n slices.

QUESTION for all of my readers though: Do you think I eat too much fruit?  I’ve gotten a few comments asking me about if I was worried about the sugar in fruits and such, but had never given it a second thought.  Suggestions?  Comments?

I had a baggie of tail mix just before the end of work and going on my super short run (14 minutes, about 1.6 miles) and doing some ST while watching Pirates…Love the first movie!

And then I settled on dinner super quick: spinach salad w/ cucumber, tomato, corn, a carrot and a tomato basil veg burger.

Off to bed!  I’ve got some planning to do for this weekend and those to come; I’m hoping to get down to Corpus Christi while I’m here to visit the other Hawkwatch Station in Hazelbaymore. We shall see!

    Hey Melissa – Your birthday packages look great! :)

    I definitely don't think that you eat too much fruit – is there such a thing!? I always love your beautiful fruit pictures. :)

    what a fun package!

    eh, I don't worry about fruit. it's healthy and whole foods.

    What a nice package from GC! Very cool.

    I wouldn't worry about it! The only thing I worry about is dairy, I try not to eat too much dairy (I love cheese and yogurt) – and that's because it makes me feel sick.
    As for fruit/vegetables – the more the merrier. I tend to eat around 2-3 servings of fruit a day, and try to eat 4-6 of veggies.
    NICE Packages!

    I never thought there could be such a thing as too much fruit, but I loooooooove the stuff.
    And I like the sound of PB filled PB cookies, yummy!

  7. Heather says:

    Hi Melissa – I tend to eat a lot more fruits then vegetables – I like them more. I try to eat more vegetables but I always figure that fruit is better then something like chips!

    I say, you can never eat too many fruit! Go for it.
