my less serious day: death by salad

Some people risk death for drug addictions. I risk death for over-topped salad beasts.

Dress: Loft; cardigan: Gap; pumps: Miz Mooz.


This morning I hit my at-home stationary bike for a 35-minute ramp interval ride followed by a short walk with the pup. Despite my troubled tummy, I have really been enjoying ditching work early and hitting double afternoon workouts at least once a week: a 45-minute spin class followed by a 60-minute Body Pump class.


Breakfast was a bowl of Kellogg's All Bran, Cheerios, Chocolate Chex, banana, and cow's milk.

Mid-morning snack was this ripe banana

This salad just looks like trouble, doesn't it? At the time it seemed like a brilliant idea. Romaine lettuce topped with tomatoes, portobello mushrooms, carrots, sharp cheddar cheese, leftover bbq chicken, and leftover sauerkraut. Delicious, but dangerous. This thing put me under for the rest of the day...

As a result, dinner was this bowl of plain Greek yogurt mixed with vanilla protein powder, Quaker Oatmeal squares, Post Great Grains, and cashews. I went back for more cereal and cashews and a glass of milk later on. 

Dessert was sugar-free vanilla pudding.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Wednesday, October 17. 


  1. Love the print of the dress. Im trying to switch out of my jeans/blouse rut into more cute, office-appropriate but still young and fun dresses and it's hard to find them - but maybe I'll have to go hit up Loft! Very cute :)

    1. Thanks Faith! I actually got told by my student that i looked like i was going to a night club when i walked into work in this dress!! if only. if only....

  2. Love your style! I want to go shopping with you so you can counsel me :D.

    Haha, see, salads can be dangerous! Maybe another reason why I'm not having them ;) - kidding.

  3. oh gosh but that salad beast looks to die for! i want it.

  4. Haha oh I remember eating huge salads that would knock me right out. I just can't do it anymore, though, so most of my 'salads' end up being pretty boring these days. Hope you managed to recover :)
