Blogging In The Car!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on April 11, 2009

I have Eric’s Anywhere Internet in the car right now. It is a fun way to pass some time although I won’t be on here for long because the sun is beaming down on the screen and it is hard to see!

Eric packed the car this this morning and got out Sketchie’s travel bag:


He sat in the bag for a full 2 hours until we left! He loves car rides and he loves visiting the in-laws. They have 2 other kitties that Sketchie likes to torment.

Breakfast was a Peppermint Tea Green Monster, 3 pieces of a juicy cantaloupe, and 1 Wakey Wakey Glo Bar:


I had a fun and effective interval workout this morning!

Workout Stats:

  • Duration: 45 mins.
  • Max heart rate: 164 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 143 bpm
  • Feel the burn: 340 kcals

Here is what I did on the treadmill:

  • 2 min walking warm up, 4.0 mph, incline 7%
  • 15 min run, 4.6 mph, incline 7%
  • 1 min walk (same as above)
  • 10 min. run (same)
  • 1 min walk
  • 5 min run
  • Last 8-10 mins I walked at 4.1 mph, incline 5-%

I also got off 3 times and did a couple downward dogs and 1 set of 20 pushups. After my shower I was starving yet again, so I had a wrap with tomato paste spread all over it (sorry no pic!). It held me over to lunch.

Lunch was Salmon Veggie Wraps!



  • Baby organic Spinach
  • 1 can Gold Seal Flaked Salmon
  • Black pepper
  • Kraft Light Roasted Tomato Dressing (1 Tbsp approx)
  • Ground flax
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Pita Wrap (same pitas I showed yesterday)




With a huge Sunkist Orange:


I also made Flax and Pumpkin Seed bread to bring with us to the In-laws today!


I wanted to eat it so badly, but we had to save it!!


Once, in Toronto I dropped off my Glo order to the lovely Jessica. Jessica and I met through our photographers! Dave and Charlotte are shooting Jessica and her fiance’s wedding this August! :) She was super sweet and gave me a gift!


What a sweetie!! I can’t wait to try these out. Stay tuned for a review this weekend! I may just have to have some now! :)


Such a beautiful day outside!

Ok, I’m going to shut down now folks! I’ll leave you with another fun Yogi Tea quote. :)


We have about 50-60 mins. left of our drive. Luckily no Easter traffic when we passed through Toronto.

I brought a bag of snacks and I’m getting hungry so I might have some now.

Have a great day everyone!

Your cat is seriously so beautiful! Where did you get him?? Also I did the workout you posted…the one with the walking intervals that you dreamed up while working out lol and I LOVED it…I did the run intervals between 6.2 mph and 7.2 mph…it kicked my butt! Have fun with your family today and eat lots of snacks and goodies =) Thanks for being such great motivation!

Have fun on your trip!!!


Jaime April 11, 2009 at 4:28 pm

I love that Sketchie was excited for the trip. I have a similar bag and when I bring it out, my furry boy hides under the bed. He’s not a fan!

have a great time at the in-laws!


Amelia April 11, 2009 at 4:30 pm

The bread looks great! I’m sure your in-laws will love it. Enjoy the rest of your trip! :)


Laura April 11, 2009 at 4:55 pm

Enjoy your trip!

I’ve never heard of a cat that likes car rides! All the cats I’ve had over the years have run and hid anytime they saw their carriers.

I’m a recent lurker of your blog! I love it and I am trying to get caught up! How did you get your kitty to like car rides? That is awesome!

Did you start Sketchie as a kitten riding in the car?


Run Sarah April 11, 2009 at 6:54 pm

Have a safe drive over! That bread looks amazing, I’m sure your IL’s will love it.

Have a fun trip Angela! Salmon wraps look amazing.



Alison April 12, 2009 at 12:29 am

Adorable kitty picture. Is your cat dog-like in personality? I’ve never known a cat to like car rides. Mine hates them beyond words.

That salmon wrap looks absolutely delicious. I think I’m going to have to make one myself pretty soon. Have fun at the in-laws.
