A {Comeback} Virtual Coffee

Happy Tuesday.

I FINALLY have a small break to enjoy coffee with you. If we were really meeting for coffee today (and it was the morning) I’d treat myself to a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, but…since I’m stuck at work slaving away I’ll have to settle for water. YUM?

So first things first I have to bore you with football talk for just smidge, because Saturday’s game was off the hook…seriously…like edge of your seat type of stuff. Here’s the low down, at the half the Hawks were down 21 points and it looked bleak. But at the beginning of the fourth quarter we found our momentum and won! A 31-27 victory the biggest comeback in Iowa Football history! I almost bawled I was so excited.

Ok, enough football…oh, well one last thing. Football games are making me fat again. Like for real people. I can’t workout on Saturday mornings because the game is so early we start tailgating at 8 am, and I’ve been eating crap. Can you say four pieces of French toast on Saturday, three sausage links and a couple of doughnuts. Nice…I don’t think any of that is on the Farrell’s approved nutrition plan. YIKES! Not only that, but this week I haven’t been able to hit the gym once! UGH…

Next week. I keep telling myself … next week.

How about you, are you sticking with your fitness and nutrition goals? It’s so FREAKING hard sometimes, but the reward is worth it.

Oh, and I’m on the lookout for easy, healthy recipes. If you have any you’d like to share, or a website you find recipes let me know I need to break out of my dinnertime rut.

And since we are having coffee I’d show you this month’s copy of Real Simple magazine which features yours truly.

This photo is so totally us.

I’ll be blogging about my dinnertime makeover with them soon. For now I’ll tell you that it was a once in a lifetime opportunity and it inspired me. Hurrah!

What inspires you to cook? Are cooking challenged like myself?

Anyway, I think I’ve extended my break time.

So, I’ll meet you at Amy’s after work, keep the coffee warm for me.

I love that picture!! I totally want to read your story, and I'm looking forward to reading about your experience. :)
Healthy eating? Yes. Today is day two of being back on the active dieting to reach my final goal weight ... I think another ten pounds, and that will be that. I'm hoping it takes five weeks and that's it. Then maintenance for life. Here's to getting back on the wagon.

EEEEK! Congratulations on your publication! How very exciting! I will admit that at a first quick glance of your first photo I thought I saw a bunch of pumpkins, then I focused and realized I needed to stop reading blogs tonight because instead I was looking at a football audience!!! Oh my. I think it's time to turn off the computer!

sooo cooool for the magazine -- is it on stands yet!?!? i think a lot of people (eh, me) are in an exercise slump, but you have done way awesome with the farrell's program. tom is still talking about the game, too. thanks for the water :)

I saw pumpkins in the game picture too at first...I probably need to get new glasses!
Congrats on the magazine article! I'm revamping my cuisine lately too, and have a few blogs I read for inspiration, like Smitten Kitchen or My new roots or Nuts about Food. Will email you some links if you like!

I'm rather late getting around to Virtual Coffee this week too! But I'm so glad I stopped by. That's fantastic news about the magazine article!! Congratulations!!

Oh - and I *totally* get you about the limited space. {bleah}

Congrats again!!
