spinach red onion tomato gorgonzola walnut salad Last night D made me go to the gym with him. And when I say made I mean he made me feel so guilty about the fact that we have a gym in our building and I’ve only been there twice that I just had to tag along. Worst thing ever. I don’t know about you but I think going to the gym is downright dreadful. That is the only place where you literally can feel every single second slowly crawling along. If I ever feel like time is going too fast now I know all I need to do is run down to the gym and that’s where it really slows down. O and another awful thing about the gym – it takes all the joy out of eating. Now that I know it will take me 10 torture-some minutes of pointless climbing on the stair master to burn off the calories in a single slice of bread – hmmm don’t think I’ll ever enjoy (or eat) bread again. With that in mind I thought today would be an appropriate day to post a salad — hopefully one that will not take too long to work off at the gym : )
