Today, I took to the task of thinning out the lettuce. Once I got going, I was focused. I knew the plants needed to be 6 inches from one sprout to another; armed with my tape measure, I worked away the forest of green.

I ended up with a nice heaping of baby lettuce, which I promptly washed off and used as my dinner for the evening.

Coming back from vacation, I have yet to light the fire beneath my jogging feet but I have done a better job of eating healthier. I'm thinking Sunday will be the day I force myself back into jogging. But absolutely no more desserts, fatty meals at restaurants, or midnight snacks.

That's not to say that I can't treat myself every now and then each week but my waistline could definitely use a break from eating out.

I used a delicious sesame and ginger vinegarette. It was tangy and sweet but not overly sweet. The greens weren't bitter at all and they had a nice light crunch. I combined the bed of baby greens with some chicken and a roll of fresh bread. Divine! McDonald's and all those greasy fast food joints--eat your heart out! :)

That looks yuuuummmy! ;D

I need to get on that healthy eating and exercise bandwagon . . . your salad just inspired me to get back on track. Again.

The healthy eating is so much easier than the exercising for me. I wanted to go jogging tomorrow but it's supposed to be even warmer than today. Yikes!
