happy national egg day!

today is special! that is right my friends, today is not only june third.. it is also my brother doug’s birthday, national running day AND national egg day! i love eggs. and i love natalie dee. and toothpaste for dinner. so here are a few of the two comics i just mentioned in celebration of national egg day!:

and while i don’t agree with natalie’s view on the HB egg.. this one is cute too..

anyway, moving on. i did the shred last night for the first time. i really enjoyed it! i can see why all of you like it. since i have a gimpy robot arm for a left upper appendage, the shoulder press and lat raises were hard for me to do the whole time. basically my left arm just fails miserably and completely and i have to drop the weights. i wonder if my arm will ever be back to normal? am i doomed for life? does anyone else have a titanium rod holding them together? if so, how long did it take to get back to normal? it has been 2 years for me and it STILL gives me trouble. sheesh!

anyway. i say anyway quite a bit, don’t i? i should find a synonym. post workout it was already 9:30 PM and i was not feeling like making a big dinner nor feeling like eating one.. so i went with a simple, sweet & delicious parfait ala k!


this one had some fage 0%, a bluebran vitatop and some blueberries that had been previously fresh, then frozen, and then microwaved to defrost them a bit.. so they got all juicy and warm and delicious. paired with a piping hot toasted vita and this basically tasted like a warm piece of cake layered with cold ice cream. okay okay, maybe not exactly but it was really sweet and tasted like an ultra amazing dessert!

then i hit the sack.

this morning i had something we haven’t seen around here in quite some time actually…protein oats! oh how i have missed you!


all mixed up:

this bowl included:

  • 1/3 cup oat bran
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (EAS triple blend..13.5g protein per half scoop)
  • dollop of applesauce
  • dollop of oikos 0%
  • plethora of cinnamon like woah!

so most people spell “woah” like “w-h-o-a” but when i read it i say “who – ah” in my head. i have always spelled it “w-o-a-h” and people always try to correct me on it. meh.

moving on!<—i say that one a lot too. hmmm. whatevs.

lunch was a gigantor salad bigger than my basset hound’s head.

it had all sorts of things in it..

  • romaine
  • iceberg (ugh)
  • grilled chicken
  • broiled salmon
  • avocado
  • cucumber
  • green bells
  • red bells
  • cauliflower
  • red onion
  • baby carrots
  • roasted red pepper sabra for dressing


delicious! but then i had onion breath. i had to get rid of it. so i appropriately switched out my onion breath for coffee breath. upgrade? probably not. but it was a better taste in my mouth.

i followed kristie’s lead and whipped up an iced coffee in my bullet, using coffee, UVAB and ice. no sugar for this girl. i really hate sweet coffee.


i enjoyed it at my desk while i lurked on all of your lives read some blogs :)

the plan today is to go home, grab some things i need for tonight/tomorrow, head to mi madre’s so we can shred together <3 and then since it is my brother’s birthday.. the family celebration is tonight, we are getting some cold stone and having a gift exchange of sorts! super stoked! i love cold stone.. good thing i am going to burn some calories before i eat my weight in ice cream have a little post birthday treat!

OMG – I am cracking up OVER the egg stuff – LOVE it!

Your parfait looks amazing – I need to remember to hook up my bluebran vita that way!

Ice cream pictures – ummmm, maybe I shouldn’t check back tomorrow….but, you will probably get your bday gift so I’ll have to look and see :D

Call me crazy but I some how missed the fact you have a rod in your arm!! What’s the back story to that?

Your parfait is AMAZING!! Bluebran was one of my favs but I like your addition of the microwaved blueberries! After I read your whoa/woah issue I over thought how I spell it and so I have no idea what I usually do!

ONION BREATH IS THE WORST! I get onion hang overs too :( but I still love my stanky veggies!

Tomorrow I shall try to hunt down cognac cheesecake flavored fro but considering the fact that I can even find genuine vanilla fro, I don’t think it’s going to happen :(

k! i threw myself off a 65 foot jump. it was stellar. i actually went off the jump (snowboarding) and i had been going off of it all day, nice and smooth, but it got overcast and icy near the day’s end and i got too much speed and overshot the landing by about 10 feet.. so after flying 75 feet through the air i landed on flat ground and used my arm to stop my fall. you can see photos of the gnarliness on my about me page. it was less than fabulous, but i am glad i didn’t get paralyzed or something! super lucky in that sense!

LOL they have a day devoted to everything, don’t they?

Susan June 3, 2009 at 7:59 pm

Ahhhh!! I LOVE Natalie Dee!!! I even have her “Will knit for tattoos” tote bag :P

I can’t believe it’s national running day AND I ran today! What are the chances? It’s as if the stars aligned and the universe wanted me to finally run… or something…

Also, I now have to hit up the liquor store for cognac. And maybe a leather and mahogany chair to drink it on.

OOo I love eggs! Good to know they were honored today :)

Mmm that parfait sounds yummy, I loooove heating up berries!

Have a great night!

Wow, a triple holiday! Love the egg cartoons…hey, that’s like cartons…. cartons of eggs! haha wow I need to go to bed soon.

That parfait looks awesome! I need to pick up some vitatops stat and start making these. Love the salad, too. Big salads are my fave!

Have a great night, and happy birthday to Doug!

Ok I am SO jealous that you got to see the Sounds AND meet them. come on, janetha, that is just too much! I forgot that their new album came out the other day. I am going to have to go buy it TODAY. I just love them. I always feel like a bad ass when I listen to them and I pretend that I am a hard core female rocker!! haha.

Enjoy the ice cream girl! Get some coffee or mint chocolate chip flavor for me! :)

Your parfait looks SO GOOD! You and K have mastered the parfait presentation!
And glad you’re liking the shred…and working out with your mom!? Sooo cute!! Enjoy!

Hey Janetha! It’s Sarey from tracker….I haven’t been on there in ages because the wonky site wouldn’t let me on and now I’m on strike. Anyway….hooray for ice cream!!

In honor of the incredible edible egg, I think I’ll have me some breakfast for dinner…yum!

Is the shred Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred?? I bought that dvd a while back and lent it to my sis-in-law….I may have to swipe it back if it’s that good… after I finish my post-natal workout dvds, that is.

When I saw your K-parfait I thought, K would be so proud! Then I saw her comment and thought, K is so proud!

Onion breath is NO BUENO!

I totally didn’t partake in national running day due to my shin splints and weak ankles…but national egg day gives me confidence that I can full live this beautiful June 4th!

AND FROYO DAY IS GONNA BE BOSSY
