A Little Pampering

After work I met a friend for much needed pedicures.


I love the place we go to. $24 gets the best foot and leg massage plus a pedicure. And the massaging chairs are divine.


I needed a little pampering after how hard I’ve been training lately. I also booked massages for next month. A massage two days before Reach the Beach to loosen up my legs and a recovery massage after the race. I can’t wait!

When I got home I made dinner for myself. (Michael was having popcorn while watching the Blazer game.) I sprinkled it with pepper, Lawry’s and topped it with some butter. I baked it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Then I made a concoction that turned out wonderful! I reheated the leftover quinoa. I chopped a few slices of orange pepper, chopped some cucumber, and mixed in some chickpeas. I added steamed brocolli and topped it with Goddess Dressing. Mixed it all together and ate it with the salmon. The quinoa salad ended up being really filling and delicious! I only ate half of my salmon as a result.

(Sorry It's Blurry)

Quinoa is my new favorite thing for dinner! ๐Ÿ™‚

Michael and I watched the finale of Project Runway. Seth Aaron works with Michael and he won!! Yay for Portland! (On a side note, I wish “Top Chef” would hurry up and start!) I ate a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich for dessert. Have a great night! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love making a similar salad with couscous – take 2 cups cooked whole wheat couscous that is cooled, add chopped tomato, cucumber, and a can of chickpeas drained a rinsed, then add in red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper and mix it all up. Cover and set it the fridge until ready to eat… it is SO good!

  2. Ohhh lucky you. I’m going for a pedi soon and can’t wait. My feet are in brutal shape from running. Not pretty!

  3. What is the name of your awesome Pedi spot and where is it? I’m always looking for a recommendation.

  4. aww pedicures are always worth it to me. I actually just got one and studied while I was doing it–figured t hat’d make studying a little easier!

  5. Have you been watching Top Chef Masters? I have two episodes on my DVR I need to watch over the weekend.

    I love quinoa too – took me a while to find it though since Whole Foods isn’t too close!

    Happy Friday!
