The Salad Case: I'm back!

Workout: 30 min Jackie Warner weights power circuit + 20 min interval run

It never fails, anytime I think (or say) "I'm back" I always think of George Costanza. In honor of him, here's a special treat:

It works the same for "I'll be back," but that one's a gimme. Are there any movie/tv lines that you always think of when you say something?

I know, I've been SO SO SO inconsistent with the working out/eating healthy -> not posting about it that  I don't even know where to begin. It hasn't been terrible but there were some unmentionables that shall remain unmentioned. Cough*chocolate b-day cake*cough!

Last night, as I was prepping for this week's Salad Case and roasting away I had a little thought - "It's a shame all this hard work can be undone in an instant (or several).

One of the things Jackie recommends is to have a list of reasons why you don't want to be fat with you to help you make the right choices. One of the things on my list would be to not let all this hard prep work go to waste! What would be on your list?

BTW, I'm pretty much done with Jackie's "This is Why You're Fat" book and fixing to start writing the review this week. I've already incorporated some recommendations into my daily routine, I just need to be consistent about it.

Back to today's case:

  • couple of handfuls of spinach
  • roasted veggies: eggplant, red peppers, carrots, purple onions
  • 1/2 cup roasted chickpeas
Don't you just love my photography skillz??? I work in a dungeon (there's literally no windows) and I fought hard for my office space to only use half the lights - there was too much glare and the people wanted it! 3 out of 15 people fought me on it, but we've compromised :) but now I can't use the flash setting without cluing people in to knowing I take pictures of my lovely salads ;)

On that note, I'm very happy to announce that I have signed up for the following:

Whoop! I can't wait!!! I'm sure you can't either, must be tough looking at my pictures sometimes!

Then there's pictures like these, that aren't that tough to look at!
