    I guess the fact that I was eating a ton of veggies made a female coworker ask, "Are you eating for you and the baby?"
     
    First of all, I AM NOT PREGNANT, nor do I look pregnant.  
    Second: I would never say that to another female even if she was pregnant. 
    Third: We are not even friends so she has no reason to speak to me as if it is ok to say whatever is on her mind.
    Four: She is much larger than me (I know petty but she just called me pregnant)
    Fifth: It took everything I had not to say a snarky comment back about her health. (The comment was incase you were wondering , "Gee, I guess we all can't have your girlish figure and be as fit as you while eating that"

    Ready for another one? This is a conversation that I actually had at work today. I am still confused by it.
    Coworker: What are you having for dinner?
    Ali: Meatloaf.
    Coworker: How can you have meatloaf?
    Ali: ... because it is a loaf made of meat? Also veggies.
    Coworker: No, I mean... you can't have meatloaf without oats.
    Ali: I would hazard a guess that you can, since it is in fact called a meat loaf and not an oat loaf. (Oat loaf would be a great band name.)
    Coworker: Well... but you can't have ketchup.
    Ali: I can if there are no sugar and no additives.
    Coworker: Where did you possibly find ketchup without sugar?
    Ali: Oh, I made some.
    Coworker: YOU CAN'T MAKE KETCHUP.
    Ali: ... yes you can.
    Coworker: HOW?
    Ali: I found a recipe on the internet.
    Coworker: YOU CAN'T FIND A RECIPE FOR KETCHUP ON THE INTERNET.
    Ali: ... there you go again. This is a thing I have done. It occurred in the past. It has already happened.
    Her tone was seriously as though I had stated I found a recipe for the philosopher's stone on the internet. KETCHUP: ONE OF THE LOST WONDERS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD, you guys.

    La Croix Sparkling Water is great! The grapefruit version is my favorite!
     
    I also buy the unsweetened green tea from Trader Joe's. It's refreshing all on it's own without needing a thing. Sometimes if I want to get crazy, I'll squeeze in some fresh lemon

    "I just don't understand why you would do that to yourself!" This was uttered last night by a colleague who trained 6 days a week for a year, and barely drank any alcohol in that time, preparing for an Ironman. If she doesn't understand, who will!
    Oh, and my best friend freaked out and practically threw a tantrum today when I said I won't be drinking at her birthday gathering next week. Good to know I'm such bad company sober!

    You ask for a food processor with shredder/chopper blades for Christmas - then you can have more stir fries or sweet potato hash without all the ridiculous amounts of prep-work!

    You can get a steak Cooked with no butter, no oil. They have a healthy options menu and it's either cooked with olive oil or nothing, I can't remember. And the broccoli is actually just plain steamed - no oil, butter or seasoning - but make sure you are ordering from the healthy choice section.

    Roz, for my birthday I was given three paleo cookbooks and then I turned around and ordered another one the next time.  I am in the double digits of cookbooks and there is no sign of it stopping.

    .... They are constantly baking sweet potatoes at random intervals to make sure they are supplied for post WOD snack at all times.
    To quote on of my favorite (late) comedians, Mitch Hedberg,
    "It takes forever to cook a baked potato in a conventional oven. Sometimes I just throw one in there, even if I don't want one. Cause by the time it's done, who knows?"
