Hockey guys are hot

28 Feb

This afternoon was full of fun- I got a lot done!

I’m a poet and didn’t even know it-hehe.

I took Lincoln to the dog park and there was the most dogs I have ever seen at one time! I counted 27 little ones at one point and we stayed for about an hour. We were going to stay longer but this Boston Terrier kept nipping at Lincoln’s tail and Lincoln started whimpering šŸ˜¦ Poor baby.

We came home and I heated up leftover’s from Azteca last night. I had some rice and beans (I could eat this every day!!) and half an enchilada

The day was nearing to an end and I decided to go for a much neededĀ run after GorgeFestĀ 2010 this past wknd. I did about 3.6 miles and ran most of it but had to walk a bit. I don’t know what was up with my lungs today but they were just not wanting to cooperate with me.

I came home and the Men’s Olympic Hockey game between the US and Canada was still on. What. A. Game!!!!

And those men are hot–I have always been attracted to football players but bonjour hockey men, nice to meet ya!

I nourished with a Green Monster (Soy Milk, Spinach, Frozen Banana and Chocolate Whey)

Drinking one out of this cup always makes me smile. I don’t know if it’s because of the dogs or beer but it does šŸ™‚

Does anyone have any good recipes for acorn squash or how to prepare? I have heard about it alotĀ but never cooked with it, so if you do—let a sister know!

Ā  I cannot believe my first 5K is in less than two wks and I am nervous about it! But excited at the same time. I thinkĀ nervous because I don’t know what to expect and don’t know what the process is. I am expectingĀ someone on a golf cart and a bullhorn toĀ follow me and yell at me if I start walking lol. I hope this isn’t theĀ case!Ā  I am not trying to be gross but when I run, I find that I need to spit. Do I just do it or is there some proper etiquette? I like to think that I am once twice three times a lady but didn’t know if you could forgot about it or let it out?

Ā  After today’s run, I am in complete pain. Please tell me this running thing gets easier and I won’t be aching as much. Or lie to me at least! LOL

Dinner was my take on Spicy Chicken Cakes with Aioli from myrecipes.com that I made a few times

I didn’t have bread so I used breadcrumbs and used red onion and parsley in the mix. I made about six total which is perfect for the work wk since you can nuke them or make a sandwich out of them. I had leftover fries from Five Guys and couldn’t let go to waste.

I topped with Ken’s Lite Honey Mustard and it was delish!

And a measly side of broccoli—I had a small bag with five florets sitting in my freezer and didn’t want to throw them out

And where the hell did February go? I like to go into each month with a positive attitude and goals.

*Attend more networking events

*Pay down my credit card some more

    Running gets easier! It really does! I’m currently taking a break from running because of my knees but honestly I can’t wait to get out there again! I think i’m going to have to treadmill it or wait for the weather to warm up!

    Good luck on your upcoming 5k! You’ll rock it!

    I’ve made a stuffed acorn squash before. Here’s my recipe: http://foodologie.com/2009/12/05/snow-squash/ and this is the filling http://foodologie.com/2009/12/03/portabella-stuffed-with-quinoa-apples-and-cranberries/

    Pretty simple and delicious! Not a whole lot of fuss!

    thanks for entering my giveaway, good luck!! i LOVE acorn squash. i just cut it in half (watch out for your fingers!!) scooop out the seeds, slice it evenly, and then roast it. yum. stuffing it with grains and dried cranberries and walnuts is also fab

    Running DOES get easier (and that’s not a lie lol). I used to get so frustrated because I was hurting and I felt so weak. I could barely run a mile without getting winded. I stuck with it though and now 7 months later… I’m training for a marathon! And it doesn’t hurt nearly as much now as it did when I was trying to run 2 miles šŸ˜€

    I love acorn squash- you should try cutting it in half and roasting it, then using it as a “bowl” for filling šŸ˜€

    Wasn’t that an awesome hockey game?!?! Too bad the USA lost…but I was glad that if the USA had to lose then I am glad Canada won!

    Hahahaha, you crack me up! I missed ALL of the hockey game! I was too busy trying to write a speech for class tomorrow. I’m really proud of you for keeping up with the running. You’ll do great with the 5K; just make sure to take some pics for your blog, so we can all see them!

    While you roast up your squash, sautee up some onions and garlic. Then scoop out the insides of the squash and puree it with the onions and garlic and some warm veggie broth in a food processor or blender for some delish and nutrish soup!!!!
