it's about time.

Um, I've never wanted to blog so badly as when I wasn't able to for the past 24 hours. Seriously.

I'll leave it at that, because I'm sure the Blogger folks were diligently trying to get Blogger back up. I'm ashamed to say I may have considered a break-up if things didn't turn around quickly, but I'm a little impatient and have a hard time remembering that everyone has flaws sometimes. (excluding myself, of course).

Britt (who blogs at FitChickBritt) called out to any Bloggers that wanted to join her in doing this:


Being the Jillian lover that I am, I jumped on the band wagon (albeit, a week behind Britt in the 4 week challenge) and started RIT on Tuesday. Holy geeze I'm sore. My little legs have been struggling with running this week because they're so sore. Yikes.

On Wednesday I branched out in another direction and tried spaghetti squash for the first time. I'll be honest, I was a little nervous.


I'm happy to report though that it was REALLY good. I've been trying to use up all the fresh produce in our fridge, so I mixed in some baby spinach/arugula, feta cheese, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and fresh basil with a little olive oil... DELICIOUS.

See what I mean?

Perhaps I'll try out being vegetarian... (Sean would die.)

It rained for the first time in FOREVER yesterday (which naturally means that everyone freaked out and drove at negative speeds. Don't think it's possible? Try driving home during rush hour on 290 in the rain. Negative speeds are possible).

But it did result in this:

Beautiful. The rain also resulted in my 5 mile run this morning happening in 64 degree weather. I'LL TAKE IT.

Oh and because I just can't stand to leave them out... how cute are they:

The one of Leo in the bag is an all time fave. Man he's cute! Since Sean was packing to go out of town, he tried to leave with Sean (rude).


  1. Love the pictures of your cats! Too cute!
    I was seriously at a loss without blogger--addicted? Maybe!

  2. Yay for the Jillian workout! You are much braver than I :) Maybe something for me to consider in June/July during my break from racing!!

    So glad someone other than me likes spaghetti squash. It is GOOD!I'll have to try it with spinach- great idea :)

    Have a good weekend!

  3. Your "cat in the bag" is adorable. It looks like he's really packed to go on a trip haha!
    I've never known what to do with Spaghetti Sqaush and what you did looks like a really good idea....

  4. I love spaghetti squash! Yours looks super tasty! Hope you're having a great weekend! :)

  5. I'm with you - blogger totally irritated me!

    And you are so good to sign up for that abs challenge. It looks hard! I'm an abs wuss, which probably means that I need a challenge of some sort. :-)
