Swimming Deer and A Day Of Good Eats

Morning, happy Friday! Kidding. If only it were, right?

I dont know if you all have seen this as it is originally from last year, but I somehow just came across it and thought it was a pretty cool story.

A man was out on his fishing boat off the coast of Alaska and saw four deer swimming toward him and obviously looking for help, so he let them up into his boat and brought them back to shore and the deer seemed pretty thankful to get relieved from the icy water.

Both pictures were taken from here which is the man’s personal/business website who helped the deer out. You can read the full article/story and view more pictures there. (*Edited to add: if you are having a hard time opening that link, you can also find the story and pictures here as well!)

Pretty cute huh? They look so peaceful and nice. And to think… I was scared of a deer.


I finally had a lunch worth taking a picture of yesterday! (As in, not cheese and crackers, or a sammich).

In the mix is some romaine, tomato, cucumber, mozzarella cheese, pepper, Newman’s own oil and vinegar, sliced turkey, and pita chips!

I didnt go to training last night, but I plan to go tonight and tomorrow night . I did bring Kona on a long walk last night though which was nice since it was a little warmer than usual. I also managed to get some stuff done around the house and make a delicious dinner!

I cooked up some cod (using my “quick fish” way), half of a baked potato topped with a little cheese, steamed green beans, and a pea/sweet onion mix. Torrance is a fan of the pea/onion mix, they are just so-so for me, but the veggie selection in the house seems limited for some reason.

And for breakfast today I am enjoying some frozen strawberries and an egg, cheese, and turkey sandwich.

Still no egg n jelly! I havent been craving the sweet and savory mixture lately. I’m sure it will make its way back into my menu shortly though 🙂


Since I am cutting it short this morning, here is a link to a quick article – 7 Surprising Health Facts About Coffee that I found interesting. I am always happy to read that coffee has benefits though since I am a huge coffee drinker!

  • Are you a coffee drinker?
  • Do you like cheese on your salads?
  • What was your workout today, or what is your planned workout for later today?

  1. I hadn’t seen that story! That’s so great that he was able to help the deer.

    I love cheese on pretty much everything, but pepper jack is my favorite for salads.

  2. I am a coffee drinker? Sheesh….just hook that stuff up to my veins!

    And I think cheese is a necessity on absolutely everything; salads the most. I am thinking that a tour of the Tillamook factory is going to be in order soon in my household.

  3. Those deer are so cute!

    Also, just curious about your training…did you take measurements or anything at the beginning? Will you get to see at some point if it’s changing your body? Are you noticing your clothes fitting differently? Give us some details, girl! 🙂

  4. I am definitely a coffee drinker 🙂
    And that is possibly the cutest story I’ve ever heard in my entire life.

  5. I’m not even sure that I could eat a salad that didn’t have cheese on it! Cheese is a vital part of my life! 😉
