Chicago Bound?

Holy moly am I draaaagginggg today.  All I want to do is go home and take a nap.  I was planning on getting in a run after work, but I’m not sure what would be better for me at this point.  Run it out & try to gain back some energy, or catch up on a little extra sleep?  I have a softball game later tonight @ 7:45, so I don’t want to tire myself out too much.  What to do, what to do…?? :)

Well, one thing I know I can’t blame my sluggishness on is hunger, because this morning’s bagel has kept me stuffed right up until lunch.  LOVE that! :)

So I’m not gonna lie…I’m pretty excited about today’s lunch…it’s veggie-rific! 😛  Last night, I was on top of my game, and decided to put together a salad of wonderful goodies for today.

In the mix is some romaine, cukes, carrots, grape tomatoes, green bell peppers, broccoli, dried cranberries, and a heap of leftover spaghetti squash.  I like to occasionally add cold pasta noodles to my salad, so I figured since I used the spaghetti squash as a “noodle substitute”, why not do it in my salad?

Check out all those colorful veggies!! 😀

I’m also adding some of my homemade croutons that I made a while back.  They’re still as fresh as they were the first day, if not more flavorful! :)

I drizzled it all with a little dressing mix I whipped up this morning with balsamic vinger, EVOO, S&P.  Simple, yet satisfying :)

On the side, I also packed some fresh cantaloupe.  YUMM! 😛

Hopefully all these veggies will give me the extra “boost” I need today!

I’m really interested in attending this year’s Healthy Living Summit!  I followed it and read allll about it last year, and it sounded like such a blast.  I still have to work out some details/budget stuff/schedule things, so nothing is definite.  I would be THRILLED to go this year, but to be honest, I’m a little nervous since I would know nobody! 

Did you go to the Healthy Living Summit last year?  Are you going this year?  If you’re going…is anyone interested in being a roomie??? 😛

    Hey! I didn’t go last year but am planning on going this year hopefully (if I can get a ticket!) I might be staying with friends so I save the expense of a hotel, but if not I’d definitely be looking for a roomie!

    Quick (non-topic related) question. Which shade of Laura Mercier foundation did you get? Medium or Fair? I had no idea it was such a limited selection on the starter kit, which is good. From your pictures my skin looks lighter than yours.

    Dude I would totally go and be your roomie!!! Unfortunately mozambique is a bit far… but definitely next year, I hope I can make it : ) so scary going when you don´t know people, but I bet it would be an AWESOME experience stepping out of the comfort zone and meeting like minded peeps!

    I’m definitely going to be there! (I say that now before I’m sitting on my laptop trying to get a ticket as soon as they go on sale…)

    Very excited- I’ve been reading up on it and contemplating going ever since I saw they’re going to be in Chicago…
