Eating With One Foot Out The Door

Hey Friends! 

Yikes! This time next week I will be all packed and ready to head to sunny San Diego. Boy, this meeting sure came up quick. Even after a whole year of planning, I still feel like I need more time to prepare.

Even though I’m a little lot stressed at work and always seem behind schedule, I still find time to run – no matter what. And, believe it or now, even when I work 10-12 hour days at our big meeting, I get up at the crack of dawn, actually before the crack of dawn, and run on the treadmill in the hotel. My coworkers say I’m crazy but really, it’s one thing that keeps me sane and feeling healthy during the busy week.

This morning started with a 4-mile run on the treadmill (55 degrees, but raining outside 🙁 ) Breakfast was a bowl of Honeynut Cheerios and walnuts…

10.22 breakfast

I was practically eating this cereal with one foot out the door because I was running so late. I really do NOT like eating “on the run”. I either don’t feel satisfied or my stomach ends up hurting. But, even with my tardiness, I did manage to stop by a Starbucks for a nice mocha frap – ahh, now that was worth being an extra 7 minutes late.

I only had one meeting this morning. Thank goodness for that because I have a bunch of “little” things to take care of before I leave. All of these little things have been put to the back burner so that I could take care of the big things. But now all of the little things have piled up and have become one BIG thing. Are you confused yet?

I stepped out, in the rain no less, around 1 PM for a little soup-to-go…

10.22 lunch

I didn’t even have time to put this in a fancy smancy bowl for y’all – just ate my minestrone straight out of the paper cup!

My commute home from work was terrible, even though I left at 4:20 PM! I was so happy to be home after 45 minutes of being in the car. I was also happy because I was able to see Scott before he left to teach his class. He made homemade chicken soup for us for dinner! It was piping hot on the stove which I promptly transferred straight to my bowl…

10.22 dinner

Yes, those are homemade noodles!!! A man who makes his own noodles and is a tech guru? Can it get any better than that?

After dinner, I was so busy doing laundry and playing on the Internet that I completely forgot about the new episode of The Office! Oh, where would I be without Hulu!

But, I DID remember to eat a little dessert…

10.22 cookie

It was another Cherly & Co. cookie that I snagged from work yesterday day. This double chocolate frosted cookie was fantastic! Honestly, it really was much smaller than it looks in the photo 😉

Now I’m off to do a little shopping – online! I still need some new clothes for next week and I have T-7 days to get them.

Have a great night!


  1. That’s awesome that you are that disciplined with your running. I need to work on that.

    That cookie looks crazy good.
