On-The-Go Mix

This morning before I went to the gym I threw together a quick "On-The-Go" gym mix, it could have been a bust, but it was suprising very motivating, enough to the point I was fist pumping while on the treadmill. But i'll chalk that up to the good pace I was keeping.

As requested on twitter - here is a list of the songs, it was on shuffle so the below order was not how it played.

Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas
I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas (this one came mid run and was key)
I'm Shipping Up to Boston - Dropkick Murphys
Poker Face - Lady GaGa
Right Round - Flo Rida (this will make every mix for the foreseeable future)
Stronger - Kanye West (was ok, but I may be over it)
Who Knew - Pink (another one that always makes the cut)
Mr. Brightside - The Killers (everyone MUST try this one, it is sure to please)
Love and Memories - O.A.R. (always like to add a little O.A.R.)
Live Your Life - T.I.

As I said, before I left the house I threw these together on my iPhone. I normally only use my iPod while at the gym as it has about 4,000 more songs then my phone does. But didn't want to bring anything more to the gym then I actually needed. No I do not use or check my phone while at the gym but was going to the store after and needed my "list". if I need to explain myself, judgey judgey pants...

Happy snowy Sunday from Boston, if you're watching the Pats do you feel Christmas in the air?

All Things Crock Pot

While googling how to make Pumpkin Spiced Latte's I found this great Blog

A Year of SlowCooking - it's great for all of us who love to use the crock pot.

I've linked a few I would like to try:

A couple of you asked about my Chicken Catchatori from Monday here's the run down.

While a lot of you had off on Monday I had to work but was able to work from home so that made working just fine for me. Ok sorry back to the catchatori....

Because I decided to workout rather then prep dinner (and or I forgot) I had to brown the chicken on the stove before I put it in the crockpot. I then cut up one red and green pepper and an onion. I used a jar and a half of pasta sauce which was just enough. I cut up the chicken placed it with the sauce and veggies, we also added fresh basil from the garden which may be one of our last time we'll be able to use it for the year and a little parm. I let it cook for about 4 hours, it was pretty good, easy and quick. If I was to prep it in the morning I would definitely have left it on low all day, I don't have a problem letting it cook while I'm not home.

I'll keep you posted if I make any of the above recipes!

Monday: Crock Pot Chicken Catchatori and salad

I haven't thought past Monday. I'm working tomorrow but will be at home so I'll figure out the weeks menu then! I told you I'd be honest about my menu's or lack there of!

Hope you're all having a great weekend.

Until next year Red Sox...until next year...

LETS GO PATS!!!! - Though I'd like a better showing then what you showed us today.

I'll check out my fridge and report back tomorrow with the rest of the weeks dinner options!

Menu Monday = weak

This week will be odd with our travel and work schedules, but I'll give it a shot.

Monday: Smart Ones - Chicken Quesadilla; one of my faves though it be because it's "ok" to smear low fat sour cream on them

Tuesday: Cereal - Raisin Bran; my single girl meal as I'm flying solo for dinner tonight

Wednesday: I won't be home until late from a work event so I may add cereal or a turkey sandwich in here depending on when I finally get home

Thursday: Chicken something or other if i remember to take the chicken out of the freezer Wed night. RJ always whips up something impressive off the cuff.

Friday: We have plans, they're TBD but chances are dinner won't be at home

Though it's an off week, I said I would post the menu so that is what I did. I can't promise it will always be top notch and sassy but I'm at least being honest! :)


Tonight is a big night for us Green Bay Packer fans...My beloved Packers will be playing the Vikings and Brett Favre this evening.

This is a CLASSIC tshirt from Sconnie Nation
"We'll never forget you Brent"...

There you have it, once you leave the Packers you're dead to us.

Let's go Pack!

**When did this turn into a football blog?!

Friday already?

It has been a super super busy week. But it's the weekend and what am I doing...blogging baby blogging.

Catching up on Days while getting some last minute work done for today. I'm cooked.

On a much funnier note we were talking about blogging and twittering at work and everyone is aware I blog but I don't tell me the actual site, I wouldn't have a problem with them reading it, but unless they ask I'm fine with how it is now.

While our happy blogging talk continued I brought up the fact I don't blog about work. And how I don't think it's good blogging etiquette to do so. Which then all of a sudden my boss was bummed out I don't spend my free time blogging about him and work. Ha! We can't access blogger or any blogs at work so if someone really wanted to read ATK they'd have to go home and read it.

Moving right along...I really wish I had more to report, but like I said no blogging about work so I really don't have anything else to say!
