Yo Angela! Why don’t you post about food anymore?

I’ve had people ask me this in person and through e-mail.  I’m here to settle the subject.  I don’t post about my food anymore because I eat the same things all the time.  It’s not interesting.  It’s really about convenience with me.  Eating the same thing might be a little boring but I know how long it takes to make it and exactly what is in it.

That being said, when I eat something different I’ll be sure to let you know.

Willie made dinner! #salmon #peas #healthyeats #healthy #dinner
Willie made some salmon on Tuesday. That’s another reason I don’t post pictures anymore. I don’t really cook. I make Willie cook. You know why? I spent 3 years of my marriage making every meal we put in our mouths because Willie wouldn’t even boil water. Now he likes to cook so that takes some relief off me.

The salmon was good. He put some mustard, balsamic vinegar sauce on it and it was DELICIOUS. Probably took about 15 minutes to make the whole thing. It was done by the time I was done chatting it up with my buddy! My original plan was to made a little veggie medley with it but Willie pulled out the wrong peas so I rolled with the flow. It was good all in the same.

So I eat the same things everyday and I really don’t cook anymore.

When I do eat out I eat the same things: pancakes (after races ONLY and always with sugar free syrup), Pho because it’s delicious, Indian when I’m looking for a splurge and Greek to carb up for races. How many of those pictures do you really want to see?

Apparently, you want to see all of those pictures.

Maybe you want to have a “she’s just like me moment” which is fine with me. Just know, I’m just like you. I struggle, I celebrate, I laugh, I cry, I eat, I stress out, I work out and just have a good time like most people. What makes me different than you? For the most part I eat pretty healthy.  Lots of veggies, very little meat.

The bigs! The ladies got big cups.
I have a frozen yogurt addiction. Seriously, I have a freaking problem that I need to get under control. My friend doesn’t help me keep it under control either.  She encourages the froyo eating.  BOO! I run marathons so I can partake in froyo!  MY SECRET IT OUT!

See, so I’m just like you. I eat. I just don’t eat a lot of things I THINK is worth posting.  But I could be wrong!

Notes on Willie’s birthday and homemade frozen yogurt

Willie’s birthday was on Monday.  He’s growing into an old  wiser man!  He’s so low key that he didn’t want to do anything which made it hard for me.  I always want to make moments in his life super special but he’s happy with toned down and low key.  I guess it’s the time we spend together that makes it special, right? When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he said nothing. I wasn’t going to let that fly so I went searching for the perfect card and perfect present. The card search was a lot harder…

Froyo, I’m going to quit you!

Froyo, I’m going to quit you!

Froyo (aka frozen yogurt) is my thing.  When I was larger, I would sit down with quarts of ice cream and devour them while watching television…along with a McDonalds 20 pack of chicken nuggets, two double cheeseburgers, large fries and just for my own health, a medium order of fries too.  Not my healthiest moment, eh? But froyo was/is my trip off the beaten path in our new lifestyle change. I can eat my weight in froyo, run a half marathon and come back for more.  (You definitely know what I’ll be eating AFTER I finish my first marathon.) My…
