Ahh, the weather today is so much cooler and comfortable! I love it. Still haven't had my ipod turned in :( So I guess I have o buy a new one, and with no job now, that's tough. But I need an ipod! I went to the gym this morning, did my normal 45 mins on the treadmill and usually my ma heart rate is 170, but today it went all the way up to 204! I slowed don till it got back down to 170-175 and then in no time it was right back up to over 200! I wasn't doing anything different, I'm not sick or tired at all, so I don't know why i would be that high? I even tried another treadmill, and the same thing. Any ideas? Is that dangerous?

Dinner last night was another fabulous recipe from the whole foods website..this one was delicious!

My dad gave me some leftover grilled corn from their bbq, so it was perfect in this.

So now I'm off job hunting :( Blah. Then off to my old job to pick up my final pay cheque and my vacation pay. Then to Whole Foods..again. haha. I practically live there.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!!!! xoxoxoxooxooxxo

Love the recipes today!
As for the heart rate... that can be very scarey if you don't watch it. Your max heart rate is 220-your age. I would stop if it goes anywhere higher than that and relax for a while.

All these Whole Foods recipes look so delicious! And the grilled corn must have been perfect in the mix.

Good luck with the job search! :)
