Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Date night was canceled this evening. Hubby got a chance to fill in for a softball game, and being the amazing considerate wife that I am of course I wanted him to play!!


I love watching baseball/softball, in the words of Eating Bender, “ it screams summer to me!” I can’t wait to go to a Dodgers game this summer!! There something about baseball that just warms my heart up, I think it’s the history of it all.

Kind of like my Rainbow Flip Flops, they so scream summer to me!


I knew that I would have to bring my dinner to the ball game, because I rode my bike straight to the ball park from work. That’s another point for  TSL challenge. Today at work we had leftover veggie burritos (I know this was my second burrito in one day), I grabbed one and heated it up before I left.


This burrito was filled with zucchini, eggs,potato and other yummy warm veggies. It was FREE , which was the best part!


Along with a very tiny Gala Apple, I brought from home.


There was a bake sale at school today, so you know I had to support! I bought two of the most amazing chocolate oatmeal cookies I have ever tasted in my life!!! I am hoping to steal the recipe from one of the moms! I waited all day to savor this cookie! Check out the gooey goodness on my fingers!!!


I didn’t do so HOT at  Raw Wednesday, but at least I had my Green Monster!! Oh and I almost forgot my afternoon snack!  


I had a Thomas' Hearty Grains Double Fiber English Muffin, with Organic Vanilla Stonyfiled fat free Yogurt, topped with some strawberries!!! WOW, this might be a new favorite!  

I am currently enjoying an avocado and mint mask and about to hit the hay!! I am excited to sleep in a little tomorrow my Kettlebell class isn’t until 8:45am. I know my body will love me for letting it rest a little:)



Today I racked up the TSL points!

4 points for transportation(biked to cafe, biked to bus, took bus, biked to ball field)
3 points for meals
1 point for not spending money for dinner at all!!!
1 point for going to a free ball game instead of spending money for date night!

9 points total!!

I have a Half Ironman this weekend, I will share all about it in the morning!!! Stay tuned….

Time to get the mask off!!!

P.S. I felt much more energetic today, but still had some major tummy issues!!! I plan on eating completely CLEAN tomorrow and try and figure out what is upsetting my tummers!

Could you count your mask as an "at-home" beauty treatment? Simple Life Challenge!

Baseball games always seem to remind me of summer! Going to a Dodger's game would be so much fun!

YUMMY snack with the Stonyfield EM... I am in LOVE with stonyfield yogurt.

Well, I'd say the mask was somewhat of a "raw Wednesday" plus. ;)

You not only win the considerate/awesome wife award, but the practical and green-living wife award. Plus, the award for the best skin tone. Look at how nice your legs are! (That sounds creepy, but I mean it in the most complimentary, non-creepy way possible!)

I love baseball too. maybe it's because I live in the midwest, and it's a sure sign of spring/summer!?!

I have to say - I LOVE your flip-flops!

A half Ironman?!?! You're one active active chick!

Brandi said...

half ironman? can't wait to hear about it!

that burrito looks so good. I love eggs in burritos.

You're doing so great on the simple life challenge! But then again, you are pretty good about keeping it simple. I agree with Meridith... at home beauty treatment... you deserve a point for that!

wait you have a half ironman this weekend? did I miss that training?!

That's brave showing a photo of your runners feet, but I have to say for all the torture you put them through, they look pretty good.

I am loving me steel cut oats. Have you ever soaked them overnight and eaten them chilled?? It's like a muesli style breakfast- add in dried fruit, shredded apples, a sweetener or anything you like. You might have to play with the soaking time to get them right, but on a warm morning they are so very refreshing.

You are so cute! I'm lovin' the face mask, and it sounds like you had an AWESOME day! I hope you figure out what's going on with your tummy, though! Have a good night :)
