Remember me?

I am the one who used to update her blog three times a day but now I barely do it once and with no pictures to boot!

I would like to blame my new job, but really it was my new, sloooooow computer at work.  How can one get a promotion but have to use an older, worse computer?  I have consulted with IT and am trying to figure out how to speed it up.  Because doing work is tedious enough, updating the blog wasn’t even on the itinerary.

The new job went ok.  There is a lot to do and remember.  My organizational skills will be put to the test!  I worked 9 hours and with my hour commute each way, I am out of the house for 11 straight hours.  It is hard to come home and cook a decent meal after that length of time!  Luckily, I arrived home to spaghetti on the stove.  Thank goodness for that.

Now I am going to bore the pants off of you and just write out what I ate today.  Promise you won’t fall asleep ok?

Breakfast:  Last piece of zucchini loaf; strawberry-flavoured Oikos

Snack:  Peach and a coconut/date bar (took a picture of it but it didn’t turn out!)

Lunch:  Salad and 2 squares of Lindt Sea Salt dark chocolate

Snack:  6 dried apricots, small handful of almonds

Dinner:  Spaghetti

Not sure what to have for dessert.  I have some brownies in the freezer that I can defrost.  There are some “Tiny Tom” donuts leftover, but they really, really suck the day after.  Not soft or warm or fresh!  All of the qualities that make Tiny Tom donuts so good have disappeared!  Not worth the calories.

I think we are going to go for a walk to decompress and get some fresh (hot, sticky, humid) air.  But first I must wake my husband off the couch.  Wish me luck with that one.

    I think ‘hubby’ needs to fill in temporarily as the frugal and fit blogger….. until you have more time on your hands…like when you have an infant. they pretty much take care of themselves, right?

      Agreed!! “Hubby” would bring much needed posts on steaks, burgers ands all the great meals Robyn leaves out… 🙂

        the blog would probably need a name change then… something to the effect of “the pursuit of mad cow and a heart attack”….

        mmmmm tofu…..

      I wonder what a day of Husband’s eating would look like? A lot like mine at the beginning and end of the day, but what he eats for lunch remains a great mystery to me…

      • 11. Sarah  |  August 4, 2010 at 5:49 pm

        see previous day’s blog – 1/2 a chicken,pulled pork and some sort of meat sandwich…..

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
