Lunch Time! Oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh

Workout: Ran on treadmill 2.75 miles (24 min), walked .75 miles

That was my last run before the Clearwater Iron Girl Half on Sunday.  I think I might take it easy during this race . It’s going to be HOT and this girl does not like running in the heat. I took a freezing cold shower this morning after my run and was still sweating for 30 minutes after I got out. And that was from running inside with A/C. I am such a wimp.

In random news, I had to reschedule my next chemical peel because the hub’s bought us tickets to this.


That would be a two-day techno festival that is also…a carnival. (Honestly, I couldn’t have come up with that if I tried.)

My peel was scheduled over the perfect 4-day weekend. Now it’s over a 2-day weekend, which means my face won’t be healed by the time I need to come back to work. Co-workers beware.


I don’t talk about food too often, but I assure you that the “Eat” part of this blog is still going strong. I like to do it everyday! 😉 Usually I eat the same stuff – the same bowl of oatmeal, the same protein smootie, the same salad, the same grilled chicken. I don’t think I vary what I eat enough to be a foodie blog. And the hubs has told me that when I do take pictures of food, it does not look appetizing.

Hmph! Boys.

However, today is a special day for my friends (or maybe just Becky) that think it’s crazy insane that I’ve never been to Jimmy Johns before.

Well, the day has come.

Hello Jimmy. Your new friend Paula has arrived and she’s hungry.

After driving around the UCF location forever trying to find parking, the hubs and I gave up and drove to the University location.

When we got inside, I was relieved that I read the bottom part of this sign, because I was about to take my shirt off. Close one.

I’m still on my low carb kick, for now, so I got the Club Lulu “JJ Unwich” (turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato) – minus the mayo.  

I didn’t “freak” like the sticker suggests unfortunatley, but they ARE fast at making sandwiches. That sticker don’t lie. Neither do hips, says Shakira.

The “unwich” was good. But I’m pretty sure I can eat 4 of these before I feel satisfied. It was pretty much like the acceptable form of eating a salad with your hands.

I paired it with a Deep Chocolate Vitatop. (I know those are carbs but trust me – eating 120g of carbs a day is low for me compared to my normal 300g.)

By the way, if you’re ever wondering how to look sexy and mysterious while eating an “unwich,” I have the formula for you right here.

I may or may not have a fun post I’m trying to put together for you tomorrow. We’ll see if the hubs cooperates on this one. 😉 If not, I will be back on Sunday with a race review. Until then, have a great weekend!

(Yes, the post title was a Hammer reference. You can take the girl out of the 80s but you can’t take the 80s out of the girl.)

Tell me about something you owned in the 80s/90s that was totally lame. Ok, me first (as usual): I owned those double-tongued Reeboks that Paula Abdul advertised. They looked like this…but mine were light pink. You never can get enough tongues on your sneakers, that’s what I always say.

  1. Haha your posts never fail to make me laugh! Good thing there is no one really in our office today so it wasn’t too awkward when I laughed out loud.

    Good luck this weekend! Kick some half marathon ass!

    I used to live by UCF…you can never get into anything, especially at lunch time. I’ve never been to Jimmy John’s before. I can’t believe I got through college without going.

    The lamest 80s/90s thing I owned was a bunch of those slapbands–the bands you slapped on your wrist to make a bracelet. I had hot pink, cheetah print, and other neon colors. It didn’t matter my wrists were always bruised from putting them on–we suffer for beauty, right?

    Good luck with your half this weekend!

  3. ohhhh the 80’s! gosh, i’d have to say my hair crimper & glitter hair spray! sparkley & crimped was the way to go…i’m actually considering bringing it back. you try it out first & let me know how it goes 🙂
    good luck with the half!!!

  4. Haha I had lunch from JJs too, I’m not a huge fan of it but it’s in my building – quick & convenient. Good luck this weekend!! 🙂

  5. You have no IDEA how jealous I am of you right now!! As soon as I saw the Jimmy John’s sign in your post, I had to skip down to the comments and share my excitement. I will return and drool over the rest of your post when I’m done typing this. Where do you live again? Got a spare room for a guest? 🙂

    • Now that I’ve read your entire post, I would like to say I’m intrigued by your unwich. Hmmm.
      Also, my double tongue shoes were black and orange. I thought I was dope. I always ask around and no one else seems to remember them, so thank you, you have saved my sanity.

    You’ll be fascinated to know that your SIL grew up with Jimmy John. Almost next door neighbors for 10 years. I think he still has a crush on her. Who’d of thunk?

    BAHAHAHA i need that sign!! that is hilarious!!!!! oh and i totally eat similar things each day tooo- thats why my posts are always scattered!

  8. haha, I love that sign in the restaurant!

  9. I loved jelly shoes.

    And I saw color changing shirts at Kohl’s today. What were the name of those? Hypercolor? You could see sweat marks from a mile away.

  10. pogs. like, wtf was the purpose?

    and no worries about not having lots of variety to be a food blogger. neither do it. i tend to eat the same thing day after day. until my next shopping trip where i load up for a week or two of different stuff. and eat the same thing all over again!

  11. I had the coolest big button phone! Oh! And a p’jammer which is basically the raddest alarm clock ever! Pink knobs, purple buttons, and headphones that had a little case that fit INTO the side. Badass.

    Have a great low pressure race on Sunday! 🙂
