Broken Chairs & Food Prepping

So… here I am. Let’s not make this awkward… (long time no see?)

What have I been up to?

Well, alotta work.

Alotta working out.


(Love having a heart rate monitor by the way).

And alotta other random little things and projects. The weather here has been rainy so I have been taking care of some stuff around the house that has been long neglected.


If you’re reading this at the actual blog rather than in your email or the soon-to-be-dead Google Reader, then you will see the blog got a little makeover. Its not really done because as usual, my attention span withered quickly before I completed it… so expect a little bit of construction zone going on around here for a bit.

The heading kind of reminds me of Aladin, yeah? But I sort of like it. I wanted to go a lot more plain and clean with the whole blog. Not so much clutter – and definitely got sick of looking at the ridiculous picture of my mug and other random things I had up there. (Kona insisted on the name drop)

So anyway, besides that stuff, I finally got off my ass and went and got a little desk for our house finally. Torrance has a lot of paperwork that goes along with his job and spends some time on the computer after he is done at work. This meant that paperwork started to take over our kitchen table.


Cute huh?

I have some fun stuff to put up on the wall too with it… but at the rate I move with doing stuff like that, I’m sure it’ll be a month or so (ha!). Notice the lack of chair? Sadly the one I got was broken in the box. The whole wooden leg was busted so I had to order another one.


I also spent some time prepping some stuff this week for lunches, etc.

Hard boiled eggs, Quinoa cherry tomatoes, strawberries, sliced cucumbers, broccoli, diced green peppers.

It was actually pretty simple, and definitely more convenient. I steam broccoli a lot for dinner (since I can’t eat it raw) so it has definitely made that quicker. It only took me about 20-30 to clean, rinse, and cut everything up (and cook the quinoa) on Sunday afternoon.


Off to work – have a good Tuesday!

  • Do you use a heart rate monitor?
  • What do you think about the new [blog] design – easier to read? Not so busy?
  • Do you do any food prepping for the week? What kind of stuff do you like to prep ahead of time?

  1. I really like the redesign – the green and purple are great together.

    I eat hard boiled eggs a couple times a week. I really should start making them all at once, but I don’t.

    • Haha I dont use Google reader! Im a weirdo! there is something about going to someones blog and reading it haha. I literally just have a list in my favorites of blogs i read and visit them when im in the mood to read blogs and have downtime (usually at night, or lunchtime!). it works out well. google reader and those types of things make me feel overwhelmed haha. so this way its at my pace.

  5. Like the re-design, great job! I did a bit of food prepping yesterday, need to finish it up this afternoon, it totally makes meal times much easier!

  6. The new design is really fun! And simple. I like simple.

    I also like hrm’s! I use an FT4 as well and I love it. My brain is super inclined to number crunching and data, so the FT4 is a godsend.
