Starting the week off right.

I usually pack my lunch - saves time and money. I am pretty good about packing nutritious food - but will certainly pack whatever we have on hand . . . but I really try to pack good food - especially proud of my vegie combo with fruit on the side for this week.

My vegie combo is comprised of cucumbers, carrots, red - yellow or green peppers and roasted asparagus. In the morning I drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on the vegies and I am set. For my sweet tooth - it is pineapple and strawberries with a banana sliced. This is all very easy to prepare and worth it.

I love my glass containers that I purchased at Costco. So cute - an convenient.

Tomorrow mornings run will be a 3 mile loop. Looking forward to the start of the week - why do I always consider the week to start on Monday - wouldn't it be better if I thought about it starting on Sunday. When do you "think" the week starts?

It will be a busy week - because I have appointments on both Tuesday and Wednesday morning at church to do performance reviews. So although I won't be at work - I will be working on my vacation times. ;-) And it is Holy week.

For many of you (including my High School Senior) it is Spring Break. Although we don't have anything special planned - I do have a list of things for my son Charlie to do around the house and yard - and he will get paid for his work - which helps to motivate an 18 yr. old.

Have a great week. Run hard and play harder. ;-)

Enjoy each day.


  1. I love the prep of your lunches!

    I think of the week as Sunday through Saturday. But that's just because of how the calendar is printed so that is how I total my "weekly" mileage.

  2. You are so organized! I'm impressed :)

  3. Food looks yummy... love the glass containers. So much kinder to our Mother Earth. :-)

    Monday starts the week for me, too, mostly b/c my running log is set up that way. I like to think Sunday finishes the week, with rest and rejuvenation.

    YES! Spring break for me.. yay! (Sorry..just a big kid, I guess.) No compensation for my list of things to do, though...sigh...

    Hope you have a great week, too!


    p.s. Would LOVE for you to join us in St. Pete in Nov!!!!!!

  4. I love that I'm not the only one that plans like that for the work week. But, mine aren't quite THAT healthy --awesome job!!! Enjoy -- it will make you feel awesome too! Have a great week!

  5. Mmmm, can I have lunch at your house? Everything looks so good.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes!

  6. And...for life the calendar is Sun to Sat. For running it is Mon-Sun. Strange, I know.

  7. Wow, nice healthy lunches. Michael Pollan would be proud (I'm reading one of his books now, really good if you havent' read them). Thanks for your story about trying to get to Vancouver in the rainstorm. I can't imagine being stuck like that, especially before all the cell phones, etc. That's another reason I hate to fly. You never know what's going to happen. Hope your run went well...
