Christmas Lists and such…

Evening everyone!

I had an interesting day trying to get some things done here at home while trying to get my sleep schedule back to normal. The worst thing about working nights is getting used to working nights. Getting back into a regular (aka non nocturnal) sleep schedule after working a couple of night shifts can be very difficult.  I end up feeling tired all day and all night!

I subsequently ended up waking up very late today. Much too late for breakfast!! I had a variety of steamed veggies from yesterday’s leftovers and decided to make a warm winter vegetable salad:

Warmed winter salad

I used:

  • mixed greens
  • steamed broccoli, cauliflower, baby carrot, snow peas and zucchini
  • diced red bell pepper
  • spanish onion
  • dressed in balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp olive oil, kosher salt and ground black pepper

I ate this with one melba toast and enjoyed 1.5 mugs of coffee afterwards with 1% milk.

While I was initially planning to prepare some salmon for dinner, J and I were both in the mood for some sushi so we ordered from Koganei Sushi, my absolute favourite Japanese restaurant!


Spicy Salmon Rolls

Mmmmmmmmmmmm…..I had about 8 edamame pods and ended up having 10 spicy salmon rolls. It was delicious!

So both my hubby and sister in law have asked for my Christmas wish list–we generally do Kris Kringle amongst my husband’s family and my SIL has me this year. Although writing wish lists was really weird to me at first, I realized it just made things easier for everyone involved since we all ended up getting something we liked and didn’t have to sit around guessing. Also, hubby usually needs some direction in terms of buying for me. So I came up with a bunch of things that I thought would be good options for either of them in a variety of price ranges: (We generally spend ~ $150 for our Kris Kringle)

My Wish List:

  • A heart rate monitor–I figure I could really put this to use in starting up my running again! I’m thinking something simple that tracks calories, HR and pace. Something easy to use. Anyone have any suggestions as to which model??
  • Uggs style boots–perhaps people think they’re passe, but they just look so comfy and would be good for wearing to and from work/gym
  • Subscription to Martha Stewart Living or some other mag with great recipes
  • Gift certificate to: Aveda spa/Sephora/Spa Finder
  • Comfy pj’s
  • Yoga/exercise mat
  • Healthy cookbook
  • Cute tote for work
  • Great lip balm that has a “finger free” application
  • Peppermint flavoured coffee

So just a lot of random things that I’d end up buying for myself anyways…

What’s on your wish list? 🙂

Have a great night everyone!


ps.  A big announcement Monday regarding changes to The Plan and keeping track of The Stats.
