Yuck

I did not like that Ecto experiment at all. I’m not sure I can continue with the trial! I am reposting the regular way because it is prettier …

Breakfast this morning was another slice of french toasted kitchen sink muffin. It was also the last slice, sadly, since my first attempt today resulted in the toast falling in that scary space between the oven and the counter. I almost cried.

(I topped the toast with Artisana cacao bliss (I will be very sad when this jar ends), unsweetened coconut, and cinnamon.)

After that, I popped two more ibuprofen for dessert (gotta keep the swelling down!) along with my vitamins and headed to the gym for some leg strength and cardio. Oh wait, I was moving so slowly to get ready for the gym that I got hungry again. Pineapple and watermelon (from MA) topped with hulled hemp seed:

Then I went to the gym, came back, and made this random lunch:

Key players included a heated Eggland’s Best hard-boiled and peeled egg (getting down to the wire on these, so I need to use them fast!) sprayed with Smart Balance and sprinkled with fresh black pepper:

A Peppadew salad with strawberries, watermelon, pineapple, and feta from home:

The TJ’s rice and bean chips that Elisabeth sent:

With fresh Union Market salsa (thanks, Tara!):

And Peppadew Mango Salsa:

Speaking of this mango salsa … I love it! Probably because it tastes like dessert. It would be delicious over yogurt.

Now,ย  I’m off to get more memory (birthday present from my parents!) installed in my little old computer and to pick up my official race packet on the Upper East Side (aka the other end of the earth) for Saturday’s half!

Have you ever used Ecto or another blog-editing software for Macs before? What do you think? I would love a time-saver, but not if it means I have to deal with ugliness!

    Packet pick ups are so exciting!!!! Can you use Windows Live Writer on your mac? I just downloaded it for free online and it has been a dream to use.

    I’ve never used Ecto but I’m starting to get fed up with the fact that none of my MAC documents open correctly when I send them to PC users…ugh, I love my mac but come on! On to food, those rice and bean chips sound great, I’ll have to try them next time I go to TJs. I love trying new types of chips.

    I think Andrea may have tried Ecto but got annoyed! My husband gets those eggs and I think it’s so cute how each one is individually stamped ๐Ÿ™‚
