Wednesday night Craig & I happened to be discussing the other people at the gym. Since we go every day so early in the morning- between 5am & 5:30am- we always see the same people. Now I’m hoping we are not the only ones that do this, but we have nicknames for all of them!
Here’s a list of them: The yoga people (they really don’t do yoga, but they are always doing some kind of strange moves), the lady with the head wrap, the lady with the tight SHORT shorts that go up her butt (<– ew, definitely don’t like seeing that at 5am!), my buddy (he’s really cool- we always talk to each other every morning about football- lol! he was rooting against the Steelers too :D), the jogger guy (<– he’ll just jog on the treadmill for an hour, then leave), the guy with the sweaty tight shirts (<–another thing that’s not too pleasant to see at 5am), & then there is an actual girl that we know & guess what her name is?! HOLLY! Woohoo for the Holly’s :D Now these people don’t come everyday to the gym, but we always see a mix of them.
I just find it funny because we refer to them in their nicknames whenever we talk about them, mainly because we don’t know their actual names (besides Holly) & we just think the nicknames are way better. And we always notice when they are not there & then wonder where they are- like ‘hmmmm I wonder where the guy with the super tight, sweaty shirt is today’ Hahaha! Maybe we just crack ourselves up..who knows ;)
Do you have nicknames for other people at the gym? Please tell me that we aren’t the only crazy ones with nicknames :D Have you made a gym buddy that you tend to socialize with while working out?
I have made this recipe before, but I feel like it should be shown on the blog again because it’s just THAT good. You may wonder where I got the recipe from…at this point I think it’s beyond obvious ;) Of course it is from the amazingly talented- Jessica & How Sweet It Is! (Oh have you seen her new cake truffles?! OMG- you MUST check them out! I think I might make them this weekend for a special someone ;) )
This is the ‘borrowed’ recipe from Jess’ page:
-1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders
-2 cups lowfat buttermilk
-1 packet ranch seasoning mix
-2 cups panko bread crumbs
-1/4 cup whole wheat flour
-1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Combine buttermilk and 1/2 packet of ranch mix in a baking dish. Add chicken tenders to buttermilk. Marinate for 2 hours or overnight. (I did this the night before, that way they had plenty of time to sit in the buttermilk. And instead of buttermilk I used 2 cups of skim milk mixed with 2 tbsp. lemon juice to create my own buttermilk)
Preheat oven to 450.
Combine panko, parmesan, remaining ranch seasoning and flour in a large bowl. Coat chicken pieces in panko mix, then lay on a wire rack sitting on a baking sheet. Continue with remaining chicken pieces. Spray each piece with cooking spray or olive oil.
^the set up
This is one of those recipes that is in our list of favorites. I keep a journal of Craig’s favorite meals & then for one week every other month or so, I ONLY make his favorite recipes. Lucky for him, this week was that week :) These chicken fingers are one of his all time favorites! (& one of mine too :D )
Now onto Day 14 : Your earliest Memory.
It would have to be that when I was in pre school there was this kid that bit his arm & then ran & told the teacher that I did it! What the heck?! So of course I got in BIG trouble & she had to tell my Dad when he came to pick me up. I tried to tell him that I didn’t do it, and that the kid bit himself, but he didn’t believe me & I had to get a talking to as to why biting it bad! LOL! :D
I am seriously such a cheese ball & I LOOOVVEEE Valentine’s day!! I think it’s because I just love love :) Ever since I can remember I have always looked forward to Valentine’s day…even before I had a boyfriend. I just like the idea of exchanging Valentines..it’s so cute.
We are actually going to celebrate tonight, since Valentine’s day in on Monday. Craig is taking me to one of my absolute favorite restaurants! I cannot wait :D He won’t get his presents until the ACTUAL day– Monday– but we are having our night out tonight. I can’t wait to give him his presents…I think he’s really going to like ‘em.
HAPPY FRIDAY! I feel like I’ve been waiting on week for this ;)
