We had kittens!

--Or rather, Killa did.  Our kitten (so no, it wasn’t planned, stop looking at me like that!)

They came out looking a bit like rats, acting a bit like chipmunks, but now, two weeks later, they’re starting to get cute (and play, which adds infinitely to their cuteness!)

Please excuse the "mess."

2 days old and resting.  Please excuse the mess.


4 days old, the “chipmunk” stage.


8 days old, with Mama Killa.

February 15-21 Food


  • thk-004003 Breakfast: Cereal, milk
  • Lunch: Eggplant Lasagna
    • I’ve been wanting to try this idea forever. While it made for a good dinner, it definitely didn’t feel like lasagna. Next time I’ll try my own recipe, and just sub the noodles with eggplant to see how it goes.
  • Dinner: Thai curry with veggies and rice


  • emp1Breakfast: Whole wheat spaghetti with cheese
  • Lunch: Indian-spiced lentils with rice
  • Dinner: Whole wheat empanadas
    • Not convincing. They were especially good when filled with the Indian Curry, but I think next time I’m trying to avoid a splurge, I’ll at least try an authentic dough recipe.




  • Breakfast: Hummus, whole wheat flatbread, banana with peanut butter, grapes
  • Lunch: Polenta with Nona’s Marinara Sauce, peach
    • This was used in the lasagna, and didn’t thrill me. 3 carrots?! I usually get good results from half of a small one. Sticking to my recipe, which is similar, but only has a bit of carrot, roasted red pepper, and crushed red pepper!
  • Dinner: Double Broccoli Quinoa
    • Fabulous, although overpowering with the raw garlic. I was tempted to not “waste” the pesto with quinoa, but it turned out excellent. I had to use frozen broccoli, which was fine, although I’m sure fresh would make it better. Next time I’ll halve the garlic, or roast it first.



  • Breakfast: Hummus and flatbread
  • Lunch: Raviolis con salsa fileto in Montevideo
  • Dinner: Pizza (Montevideo)

February 15-21 Goals

Okay, it’s actually Thursday of the week, and while I had goals in mind earlier, I’m definitely late in getting them finalized.  So, they’re a bit short, but here they are:


  • 3 cardio workouts, one that lasts an hour.
  • 4 days of Core Fusion.
  • 3 days of yoga.


  • Eat healthfully.

I’ll be travelling Sunday, and since it’s already Thursday I don’t have a lot of time to get things done.  However, I think these are realistic, and next week I’ll check in with some more concrete and challenging goals.
