my less serious day: love struck

I am absolutely 100% utterly in love with this jacket. So in love that I may have worn it all last night over my PJ's. I'll tell you one thing, my friends, a jacket this beautiful makes even my bright red long johns and fuzzy lavender slippers look perfectly fantastic.

This morning began with a brisk 45-minute run with L, the first 30 minutes I ran at hard-working pace and the last 15 minutes I took it easy. As usual, I took two 10-minutes walks during my day. My afternoon workout was a 60-minute cycling class (intervals).


Today's breakfast was a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Post Great Grains Crunchy Pecans cereals, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk.

Lunch was 1/2 can Amy's Organic Creamy Tomato soup (must tastier than the butternut squash variety) and a spinach and arugula salad with tomato, carrot, broccoli, red bell peppers, sliced almonds,and hummus.

My afternoon snack was a delicious Honeycrisp apple and almonds. I was inspired to purchase the slightly more expensive Honeycrisp after seeing it repeatedly on blogs. It is worth the price and may just be competitive with the Pink Lady as my favorite apple variety.

Dinner was wild mushroom agnolotti (Buitoni) lightly drizzled in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roasted broccoli, carrots, and onions, alongside a festive Halloween spider.

Dessert was an Apple 'Wannabe' Cupcake using 1/2 Honeycrisp apple, almond butter, and Cascadian Farms dark chocolate almond granola.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Tuesday, November 1.


  1. Your jacket looks awesome!
    Mhmm! As uaual, your eats look great! I need to try that apple wannabe sounds so good! :)

  2. That apple wanna be cupcake looks so good! It looks better with the drippy nut butter. Your outfit is gorgeous as well :)

  3. Fabulous jacket, nice long sleeves. I think the spider goes well with the wild mushroom agnolotti. Great post.

  4. Haha. I think that was almost exactly my train of thought when first trying Honeycrips. LIke, okay, are these really that good? Oh, why yes they are. But I still like pink ladies the best!

  5. I love the "wannabe cupcake"!

  6. @Emma - lady versus honeycrisp is a hard decision. i'd have to eat them back to back to really decide. :)

  7. Woah. That wannabe cupcake sounds FANTASTIC! I want it like right now. haha

    Oh and that jacket is SUPER cute

  8. I hate to be a negative nancy, but I'm not a huge fan of the jacket. Looks too... "hey I just got off my motorcycle." Give it to Sharon!
