I am screaming with happiness on the inside because I love ice cream. A lot.
Since I had a big handful of chips and too much granola for my afternoon snack I had a lighter dinner of roasted broccoli and roasted chickpeas. I love roasted chickpeas!!! Yesterday Ben told me he doesn’t like chickpeas and I’m devastated. To get back at him I told him I don’t like beef jerky, but he wasn’t as devastated.
I am a nice little wifey and I made him a dinner he actually liked tonight – salmon, couscous and broccoli. I also smartly made enough so I don’t have to cook for him tomorrow night 😉A Few More Questions:
Question: I know I’m late but i wanted to know how long do you plan on blogging? Do you see yourself 2 even 5 years from now still updating you readers about what you eat? Do you see a point where you will eventually stop
Monica: I plan to blog forever – or at least as long as I can 😉 I would love to document my pregnancy and eating and exercise on my blog (and that wouldn’t be for another few years). I think it would be very interesting and informational for women. I know I would love to follow someone’s pregnancy as they deal with trying to stay healthy and make a baby! So, ideally at least I’ll blog until then.
I hope Run, Eat, Repeat continues to grow and I can continue to share my little life with anyone who cares to read 🙂
Question: If you could invite any 5 people (dead or alive) to a dinner party, who would you invite and what would you serve them?
Monica: This question took me longer than any one so far! I would invite Jesus, Nelson Mandela, Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt and Ben (so we could talk about that amazing dinner party for years to come).
Question: I was wondering what is your favorite thing to cook and to bake (and maybe put up the recipes :)?!?) and what would you consider your ultimate weakness food wise…
Monica: My favorite thing to cook for dinner is a tofu stirfry. It’s my favorite meal that I make. My favorite thing to bake is chocolate chip cookies because you get to eat the batter and the freshly baked cookies!
My ultimate weakness food wise is a tie between ice cream and chocolate chips cookies. Sorry, that answer was pretty predictable.
I am working on some new and improved pages on the blog and plan to expand my recipes! Thanks for asking 🙂
Question: What is the best advice book you ever read?
Monica: I don’t know if I would call them advice books, but rather self help and my number one pick would have to be Intuitive Eating. But – I also love Men are From Mars, Women are from Venus. I think it is really helpful to see how differently men and women think and keep that in mind when dealing with the opposite sex. This book taught me that after Ben has a bad day he doesn’t want me to ask him a million questions about it and try to get him to talk about it. He wants to go off in his “cave” for a while and it’s best for both of us if I let him do his own thing.
I also highly highly recommend It’s Called a Break Up Because It’s Broken to anyone going through a break up. This book really helped me get through a hard breakup.
Question: How do you make your iced coffee?
Monica: I actually pour the leftover coffee from Ben’s morning brew over ice and add soy milk and stevia (sometimes splenda). Nothing fancy!
I think that I’ve covered all the questions, if I missed your please email me as it was an oversight.
I have my MRI bright and early tomorrow morning – wish me luck!
