Lessons Learned


Do you ever have one of those days/weeks when every decision turns into a lesson? Kinda the trial and error in life, right? But it’s the little things you think sound right (at the time) which later build character. Why? Maybe because you learn your lesson. haha!

Lesson 1:

  • When driving on a 2 way street on almost Empty, do not pass GO the one and only gas station, thinking you will make it home no prob. A random traffic back up on a Saturday can cause you to sweat bullets while waiting for that EMPTY light to go on. (I did make it…..barely).

Lesson 2:

  • Do not believe that Texas has a Spring. Nope, not at all. We went from winter to Summer in a blink of an eye. Do not think that you can run in the afternoon with 90 plus degree temperatures and a sun that’s reflecting the pavement like no other. That’s just silly.

Lesson 3:

  • Don’t under estimate the value of a dollar!! We’re trying to budget our grocery shopping these days and when you find something organic for a $1, you go for it! Thanks Helen’s Kitchen 4 organic chicken tofu steaks for 99 cents!

Blue Cornmeal Crusted Spicy BBQ Tofu Steaks


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Ingredients:
  • cut and pressed organic tofu or tofu steaks (I used Helen’s Kitchen Brand)
  • 2/3 cup organic blue cornmeal (yellow cornmeal can also be used)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • paprika, garlic, black pepper
  • 1 egg
Super easy Directions:
Crack egg in bowl, whisk in oil. In a separate bowl mix your cornmeal and spices. Coat each steak in egg batter then dust in cornmeal mix. Place on a baking sheet (greased) and bake at 400F for 10 minutes on each side. You might have to season a little more between flipping. Then broil for 2 to 3 minutes on each side again to make it extra crispy. Just depends on the strength setting of your broiler. Remove from oven and drizzle with spicy BBQ sauce.

So tell me, what lessons have you learned lately? I might need to know for future reference! haha.

Cheers,
LC

I've learned that running 18 miles in the heat is hard. LOL.

Cait said...

lindsay cotter said...

what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right? Glad you survived!
;)

OUCH! that does not sound like it was too great of a run!! ijust went running and its only 75 degrees and i was lagging!! i LOVE this tofu recipe- sounds fab!!... I've learned that there truly is no point worrying about tomorrow.

lindsay cotter said...

I think our bodies are not used to the heat yet, haha. Glad you had an awesome
PAIN FREE run. Woohoo!

Here is a lesson I learned: don't say yes to helping a friend move till you see how much stuff they have ;)

Plus not all air mattresses are created equally!

Heather said...

I've had a similar gas incident - my car says how many miles until you stop moving. I was on 0 - yelling at my husband who said I could make it home without a problem.

I've learned to savor the few days off I have this month - May will be here soon (but not soon enough).

Wendy said...

*Listening is often better than chatting.

*Strawberries make the best snack during yoga teacher training!

*Always, always, always listen to your intuition!

*If someone is on your mind in the morning, pray for understanding!

*It's okay to say, "I've done all I can on this, someone else needs to take over" or other such matter on a group project.

*Hard swedish fish will eventually become soft if given enough mouth time. (Learned at yesterday's Bull Run Run 50m...)

*It's best to write things down and ask questions when sorting ultra finishers' jackets, because after being awake since 3 am, the brain may not function properly!

*Always go to the bathroom before leaving- even if your next stop is only a "short distance" away (kind of like the gas piece).

*Always have extra food on hand when driving home from yoga teacher training (it can always become the next day's lunch afterall).

*Trust and be gentle with yourself.

Heather @ Where's the Beach said...

Girl I had a similar run yesterday and learned that I am going to have to learn to run with a fuel belt and take in electrolytes much sooner when it's hot like that. But at the same time, I realized that I can be pretty darn tough ;-)

Stephanie@MyThornsHaveRoses said...

Thanks for the tips! I'm off for a run right now. I often try to run IN the heat (weirdo) because I love the feel of hot and sweaty. BUT...not usually my fastest times and I'm hoping to increase the speed so it's now or never. I am so ashamed to admit that no matter how many times I've been VERY CLOSE to running out of gas I still tell myself I'll get somewhere. Ryan HATES it. It's probably up there with the top 2 pet peeves he has about me. :) :) :) I don't know why, but for some reason I despise pumping gas.

Christina said...

Hahaha love that video. So true! I've been to Texas in the summertime and it was a sauna. You can't get instant relief under shade!

Lesson learned: Don't assume mom will wake you up for school when your alarm clock doesn't work. Yikes!

Erin Stratton said...

I feel you on that lesson #1...I am the Queen of just one more mile gas tank COME ON YOU CAN DO IT! Not unlike what I do during my runs lol

I want to try more tofu recipies so thanks for an easy one. We are having stir fry this week with tofu so I am pumped!

Lately I have learned that sprinklers in my neighborhood go off between 6-8 in the morning so runs need to be scheduled during that time as much as possible so I can run through the sprinklers :)

Dorry said...

Love you, friend! I always love your videos - makes me miss you even more! I've learned a lot of lessons in marriage lately - some hard, some wonderful, all worth it.

Jess said...

Your video is a riot!! And those pics - you can just TELL you are DYING from the heat. Man, I would melt, I am sure of it. You are crazy for getting out there in that! But then again, that's why I love ya! ;-) My lesson learned? That it's high time I got my running legs back, and the only way to do that is to run, baby, run!

Geek Turned Athlete said...

haha. You do not look like a happy camper!! I hate the humidity, and I'm lucky to live somewhere where it is low. Otherwise, I would have a pretty good fro happening! Unfortunately, it is still cold out. I'm hoping to be able to ride my bike outside for the first time this week!

Shannon said...

I am not looking forward to the time when it's 90 degrees, 100% humidity by 10 in the morning! And I am so bad about gas. I live about 25 miles from the nearest gas station, so unless I have some other reason to go into town I don't get gas... I've held my breath driving to and from work, THEN into town hoping for enough gas many times!

A lesson I'm learning: If someone talks trash about you and is hateful to you, just deal with it, they'll end up getting theirs in the end and you'll end up with a 50% higher tip off of one of their tables just for talking to that table and taking care of their bill for them.

Also, just thinking "I can do this!" has some serious power!

Salah said...

I learned not to run outside in the heat as well....I died lol soooo hot!

lindsay cotter said...

seriously! What happened to cool crisp air for spring? sheesh.

i have learned that just when you think all is good, god/karma/high power will throw you a curve ball to see if you can handle it!

oh my, ain't that the truth. Just happened to us, again! We're working on a
slamming that curve ball out of the park though!

I hear you on the crazy weather! I'm in Oklahoma and it has been in the upper 80's to low 90's. That's nuts. What happened to spring and spring showers and rain boots and dresses with sweaters and bare legs? It's already too hot to wear jeans!

lindsay cotter said...

oh I know!! Scary to even think what Summer is going to be like. We need some
April showers ASAP!

I've just got on to tofu and I bet these are great with a crunch from the polenta, thanks!
I've been there on lesson 1 too... but I didn't learn :-)

oh yes, polenta would be PERFECT!! Sorry about lessson 1, I think we've all been
there. Sadly...haha.

Lauren said...

Lesson #2 is a great one! I switch my runs to the morning in the summer, so I don't get fried in the sun.

Chloe said...

Girl - how long have you lived in TX? :) You should know better! In Florida - there is no way in hell I would try to run (at least more then 3 miles) after 9am! Ohhh...love the summer time!

Bre said...

I had lesson #1 happen on the way to Quassy last year...you can save some gas by "drafting" Find a truck and tuck in behind ;) only works if you are on the highway though, not stuck in traffic.
ohh 90 degrees! I would run with you next time!

katie said...

LOVE your lessons :) you are still beautiful after a 90 degree run!! we hardly had spring either.. it was 90 here today too! ahhh SO hot!

katie said...

PS LOVE YOU!!!

Missy said...

Those Helen's steaks are a score! Wow.
Lesson I learned: Hard runs make Lindsay make really cute faces.

marathonmaiden said...

see, i think texas winter = spring. so i cannot wait for next year hahah!

Blonde Ponytail said...

whew! The Texas heat AND wind combo doesn't look pleasant! But, I would so prefer to sweat this time of year.

Great use of your food buget and cooking expertise!! You always make the most nutritious dense food!!

lindsay cotter said...

oh I will remember that next time. Drafting is good! I'll take you up on that
run.
;)

love the video-I cannot run in the heat at all-i'd rather wake up at the crack of dawn in hopes of shade and cool. It was finally 70 today, it was so exciting, EVERYONE was outside!!!!

Jess said...

Yum, yum, yum!! I cannot imagine running in that heat-WOW!

lindsay cotter said...

ya, I usually do that too! Now I know, stick too routine...even on Saturday!
 
Lindsay

audrey said...

about 48f in victoria bc today...very nice for running.
question: does skim milk powder make a good sub for protein powder??
a friend of mine is doing this.... it doesn't have all the extras pro.powder has, but i guess a good vitamin looks after that (?) but it is less expensive.
your thoughts lindsay...and anyone else.

lindsay cotter said...

ya, that would work. Or even goats milk powder. Lots of good calcium and some
extra protein. And nice running weather indeed!
 
Lindsay

Megan @munchercruncher said...

You are darling! I love that video! I can't run in heat like that. I am a total wuss and I always get super nauseous, so I am impressed!! I am a little jealous of the heat though. It's SNOWING in UT still. bleh!

Courtney L. said...

The tofu steaks sound wonderful.
I can't believe you hit 90 degrees - yowza!

Kath (My Funny Little Life) said...

Whew, that must've been a terribly exhausting run! I hope you're okay again by now!

Amber Shea @Almost Vegan said...

Blue cornmeal is so underrated! Love it. :)

Emilia Miller said...

Tofu- bluecorn STEAKS? Who- what- where- when? I'm not even kidding- that's totally a vegetarians dream. You are so, so, SO incredibly creative :) I'm making these asap when I get myself some bluecorn.
Solution for texas heat: come to CA!! :)

dashinginpearls said...

I ran 13.1 in that same weather today... it was HARD! We do have a spring but it's only for about a week... in February.

I've never tried tofu but for $1 I might have to get on that!

klh said...

The video was too cute! No spring in Texas, thats for sure! I learned that sometimes you just have to do what you don't want to...just because something is comfortable and what you are used to doesnt mean its right! Hope that made sense ;) Wishing you a great start to the week!

Katie :)

S @ extremebalance.net/blog said...

You can drive for SO LONG on empty!! :) Tried, tested and true--I was driving through the central stretch of BC, where it starts to look like the desert... and I *thought* I could make it to small town X. I don't even remember which one... because I didn't make it!! But I drove on empty for what felt like an eternity until I made it to some TEENY tiny town, with knots in my stomach (since I had no cell service either), and was thereafter very impressed that my little car didn't fail me. Let's hear it for some serendipity...

We used to say the same thing about Montreal--from too cold to too hot, and no in between. Everything's relative, right? Happy week!

AdrienneHJensen said...

What do you mean 90 degrees isn't great to run in? Here in Phoenix we wait for it to cool down to 90 degrees to run :) Of course you must take lots and lots of water and know your pace will be slower. The rest of the world is dethawing and we are coming out of 70-80 degree weather and gearing up for 120's eeek.

I've so Been there with the gas tank thing though....haven't run out yet.

Chuck said...

Totally have done number 1 a million times! I learned some lessons on fueling and recovery from a long ride today. Did a morning ride (69 miles woop) then went to do my run later on... Felt awesome! Then totally bonked at like 4.5 miles... but it was really weird- just like sever over heating? I could still elliptical, but I was done running for sure

Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) said...

Aww haha poor you on that run!! That video made me laugh!! I'm impressed that you managed a run- I probably would've collapsed in the first mile! :P I learned the important lesson of why you shouldn't procrastinate. I put off packing until the very last minute, and forgot my toothbrush! Typical me!

By the way, LOVED the hearts and souls in your last post!! Just saw it, and it made my morning!! Everyone has such BEAUTIFUL hearts, and I love you so much for showing this to the world:)

Lisakthrives said...

What a great bargain on the tofu! I feel like my most recent lesson is still in the works...I need to learn how to say no to people and jobs when I don't have time for them. So---being selective is my lesson! Getting in touch with what I actually want to do rather than just saying yes to everything because it was offered.
Hope you had a nice cool refreshing drink after your sweaty run! It may get to 70 today in NY, and people are over the moon about it :)

lindsay cotter said...

oh I am did collapse the first mile. But at least I elt tough, right? haha.
WRONG! Glad you are home. Can't wait to hear all about it!

wow, thats lucky. I did that once and well, did not make it! I think
it was crappy car though (at the time). So now I am always on edge when that gas

i was in canada. Sheesh!

This post made me smile!

A few lessons learned:
- things won't put themselves away. A tiny effort on my part has a huge payoff on my overall mood and wellness.
- cashew butter is my friend.
- it's ok to not answer the phone sometimes.

lindsay cotter said...

hehe, its good to start of the week with a giggle, right?
:)

steps, right? Glad its spring in NY!
 
Lindsay

Christine said...

Those pics of you grimacing are awesome, and the video, hahah! I live in Virginia, so I know all about the heat and humidity. Disgusting.

Lessons.

1. When you have a 4 year old child, always look at the steps you are walking on, because there is probably a matchbox car on at least one of them, and it's guaranteed you will step on it.
2. Don't buy things you have never tried before at COSTCO in BULK. You will almost certainly not like them and end up throwing that $20 away.

lindsay cotter said...

LOL! I've totally done the costco thing. Bought about 5lbs of certain premade
dish......hello SALT! not good.

For REAL about going straight to summer!

[Also, I was looking at this post in between my groups and one of the fifth graders walked in and said, "Why are you looking at pictures of meat?" So clearly, you CAN fool people into thinking tofu is real steak. ;)]

lindsay cotter said...

haha, I love it! Glad I can be tricky with the eye. hehe!
 
Lindsay

Jennifer Packer said...

I have a feeling that when we get through with winter here that we're going to do the same thing....straight to summer. Yuck! It's hard for me to even imagine 90 degree weather right now with snow still on the ground!
At least you still got out there and got it done! And I'm glad you didn't run out of gas!
Lessons? I would say that when something needs being done, do it right then. Because if you don't you'll most likely forget about it and then really pay for it later. I had a receipt that needed to be reimbursed, stuck it in my pocket, forgot about it, and then I'm sure I washed it. This was two weeks ago and I thought of it this morning while lying in bed. :(

jessiepants said...

1. Don't underestimate spring in the Butte - come wind, come snow, come what may.
2. Listen to my body

PS. Even after a run in 90 degree heat, you still look fabulous!

Sable@SquatLikeALady said...

Oh God. I have had so many close calls with running out of gas....when I was moving here (Montana) from Texas I had to drive through Wyoming. I had no idea just how desolate that state was... I had no cell phone service, my empty light was on, I didn't see a state trooper in the entire state, and I literally drove 100 miles before I got to a gas station. I was crying while I filled up, I was so relieved I made it! :)

That video is hilarious!!

Christina said...

I remember that about Texas!!! no season changes! Also, those tofu steaks looks AMAZING. NOMNOM

Kate said...

Ahh sorry about your run its been windy here too, not sure whats going on. Tofu steaks look amazing I love the cornmeal crust yum!

Shannon said...

Those cornmeal crusted tofu steaks caught my eye... yum! We had such a rough winter i'd love for it to be summer, but I'm happy that spring has FINALLY arrived :) And I'm running, so that is awesome. Focusing on the good things... ;)

Samanthaswalton said...

yum!! tofu steaks!

we are in full blown summer here in houston too - yuck! 5am is about the only time i can run outside.

lindsay cotter said...

ugh,  I know. Hello humidity for the next 8 months!

im with you on #1! not sure if it helps, but i always turn the radio and AC off in the car to avoid using extra gas! ha!

hmm lesson i have learned recently....try to plan your runs along wooded areas...or places where you know bathrooms are :)

janetha @ meals & moves said...

haha your video was cute. thanks for the heads up. however i don't think utah will have those conditions any time soon...

also, i am always almost out of gas!!!! talk about anxiety. i don't know why i do it to myself.

lindsay cotter said...

I think you should do all your long runs around a race event, that way there are
porta potties everywhere!! Right? haha.
 
Lindsay

Small town runner said...

LOL great advice video..;) AND....that's why I live in oregon! 80F with 100% humidity rearely happens. Not sure if it has ever happened. You could be sure I would hit the pool. Even when it's in the 80's, it's still 55-60 in the morning! You must be VERY tough.

The tofu steaks are interesting..Looks yummy how you fixed them!

lindsay cotter said...

oh how I wish I as in Oregon now with YOU! that weather sounds perfect. How's
the taper going?

hungryrunnergirl said...

Those tofu steaks look AMAZING!!! AHHHH no more running in the middle of the day.....NO SPRING?!?! I can't believe it, it was snowing here on Saturday. LOVE the video, it makes me feel like we are hanging out in real life. Lesson learned today---don't leave your curling iron plugged in and on your makeup bag, oops:)

Colleen Kingery said...

I learned a hard one yesterday - even if it feels cool when you start biking with arm sleeves, you will take them off and then you won't have any sunscreen on and will get burned. I do this EVERY.SINGLE.YEAR and have yet to learn my lesson...

lindsay cotter said...

LOL! I've never had to use arm warmers, ya maybe because I would rather get
on the compu trainer instead of the cold. I am a wuss. Show us those tan lines!
hehe.

OMG I am a freak about the gas light. If it goes on, I almost immediately get gas and stare at it the entire way to the gas station, convinced it will flip on ;-) And I am jealous of your summer-ish heat, though I know what you mean, summer and fall are such fleating, transitional seasons, far shorter than summer or winter here too (winter is like, three seasons here! ha).

(what runs) Lori said...

Ahhhh this looks SO good!

Holly said...

Ahh- it's the same way here- from winter to summer in the blink of an eye! Crazy!!
I'm SO glad you were able to make it home on E! That is a nerve racking feeling when you see the gas light.
