Happy Birthday!

Today is the boyfriends 26th birthday, so happy birthday babe!  He’s not very excited about turning 26, so let’s make him feel better about it.  And, because he should have known better than to send me this picture, here’s a picture of baby Alex!

Isn’t he cute?  Haha, he looks exactly the same.  Lovee you, have a good birthday ;).

Last night was a rest day, and when I got home from work I immediately took some chicken out of the freezer and cut it up to marinate.  All day I’d been planning my dinner in my head, and I couldn’t wait to eat.  While the chicken marinated, I ran across the street to pick up a bottle of red and some frozen veggies to go with my dinner.  I was making my favorite teriyaki chicken stir fry with noodles.  In the mix went half a sweet onion, four cloves of garlic, broccoli florets, corn, and snap peas.  I used about three servings worth of whole wheat linguine, and two chicken breasts.

It was delicious, and I ate a giant plate full and brought leftovers for lunch today :).  After dinner I sat on the couch waiting for the Britney episode of Glee, and was excited to see one of the episodes of How I Met Your Mother that she was in, also was on last night.  Glee lived up to my expectations, and Heather Morris is a fantastic dancer.  I kind of felt bad for Lea Michelle when she did Baby One More Time, because her dancing was just not as good at all.  She still has a great voice though.  Was anyone else hoping for a John Stamos/Matt Morrison sing off though?  Maybe in a future episode?  Get on that Glee.

In other news, the Yankees are back in the playoffs this year hooray!  Now it’s just a battle between them and Tampa for first place in the division, playoff games start in a week.  I’m pumped.  Oh yeah, the Phillies are back too, so it’s only a matter of time before popular songs have their lyrics replaced by things about the Phils.  Like last year, when radio stations changed all the lyrics to Jay Z’s New York and made it about Philly.  Awful.  Anyway, I wouldn’t mind a Phillies/Yankees World Series again.  Makes it interesting, except the Yankees really need to pull it together if they want to make it that far.

Half-way through the week friends.  I think we can make it!

Finally, groceries!

Hooray my sister went grocery shopping yesterday, and for like the first time in two weeks we actually have food in the house.  I celebrated by whipping up my latest most favorite cooking creation.  The chicken teriyaki and noodle stir fry that I made a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately we didn’t have fettucine noodles, which really are the best ones to use, but whole wheat spaghetti was a fine substitute.  Along with the broccoli and corn, I also added snap peas this time.

better than take-out!

I was smarter this time and made a lot, so now there are leftovers for some point later in the week :).  Prior to dinner, and thanks to some motivation from my Twitter followers, I managed to drag my butt to the gym and get in a workout.  I really contemplated skipping it and making last night my rest day, but I can’t go tomorrow so I really had to.  In the end I’m glad I got there, even if my sister practically had to drag me in by my ponytail.  These are the stats from my run.

  • 3.9 miles
  • 35 minutes
  • 8:58 pace

Not too shabby for completely dreading the whole thing.  Unfortunately when I was sitting on the couch later, I noticed a good amount of swelling on the top of my left foot underneath my big toe and I have no idea what it could be.  For the last few months, ok last 8 months, I’ve been having some pain when I wear heels and walk barefoot but nothing really too bad and it doesn’t typically bother me when I run.  Now that I’ve had some swelling though, I’m a little concerned.  I’m going to pay a little closer attention to it for a while and see what happens.

Since The Bachelorette ended last week, :(, my sis and I were a little upset we wouldn’t have anything to watch, but then we remembered about Bachelor Pad.  That show may even be better than The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.  I’m not even the least bit embarrassed to admit that after one episode I’m addicted.  I also may have decided that Tenley is a fantastic name for a girl, as long as she is not bat shit crazy.

I think today is going to be a rough one, I was having some crazy dreams last night and didn’t really sleep well so I’m pretty exhausted.  Hopefully I make it through the day.  Happy Tuesday!
