Three Tangent Tuesday

I am trying to be original here....I might be stretching this one out a little bit but oh well at least my Mom will still read my blog.

Basically on Tuesdays I will just be sharing three completely random/tangents/weirdo habits about myself.

Join in if you would like, what a fun way to get to know each other better.  But first take a look at breakfast.........

Fruit, cottage cheese and pb.  Amazing.


Tasted so good after 60 minutes on the stair climber and 30 minutes on the elliptical. (I watched Step Up 2 during my workout and I accidentally danced while on the stairmill.  It was probably awkward for everyone else there but I was enjoying myself thoroughly.

1.  First Tangent.  I am obsessed with purple.  Like I thought it was awesome this morning that I was wearing 3 different shades of purple at once.   It put me in the best mood.

I love purple so much that my wedding colors were purple, dark purple and light purple.


2.  I always have an extra outfit, pair of shoes, deodorant etc in the car for times when I do stupid stuff like I did this morning.  Somehow I was too deep in thought to notice this puddle on the way to the gym and completely drenched my tennis shoes.  Good one Janae.


3.  When I say I sweat into my eyeballs, I literally do.  I sweat more than anyone I know.


People think I am really weird at the gym as I was standing in front of the mirror taking a picture of a sweaty mess....isn't that when people don't take pictures of themselves...oh well.

Do you like Cottage Cheese? What do you eat with your cottage cheese?

-Oh yeah....fruit and cc were meant to be joined together.

Your turn.....tell me some random stuff about you.....go off on a tangent if you will:)

pickles with cc. no not really, but i might try it. the world never has enough purple. purple and gold was my high school and univeristy colors.

I was a little leery to try fruit with cottage cheese, but once I discovered how good it is, I always put it in now: applesauce, pineapple, frozen berries, whatever! I also like to add granola to cottage cheese!

Random bit about me: I have to shave my armpits every day--otherwise it grosses me out!

At December 21, 2010 at 2:58 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

when running, I count my footsteps. I always think that's weird, especially when I don't even realize I'm doing it...

I LOVE applesauce with cottage cheese. OOH ! another random thing about me!! I used to take applesauce + cottage cheese camping. EVERYONE thought I was weird. :D

At December 21, 2010 at 3:01 PM , Blogger Matt said...

I love cottage cheese! I eat it EVERY night before I go to sleep ;)

At December 21, 2010 at 3:02 PM , Blogger Big Daddy Diesel said...

I am obsessed with Chef Gordon Ramsey

OMG. I hate cottage cheese. Just thinking about it makes the chunks rise in my throat.

I was at least as sweaty as you this AM at the gym. Kicking ass on a treadmill minus a fan equals me as one hot mess. Oh Well!

PS I had to remove my previous post because I had misspelled almost every word. FAIL.

Cottage cheese, canned corn, and salsa. Try it.

At December 21, 2010 at 3:09 PM , Blogger Mallory said...

Mmm I love cottage cheese! I just eat it plain! I never thought of mixing it with someone.

Three things: 1. I love Hanson and I have since I was a teenager. Everyone makes fun of me for it, but that's okay. They're great. 2. My best friends live incredibly far away from me (I'm in MA, they're in ME, AL and MO.) and it's terribly hard to be a girl without your besties. 3. I have way too many pairs of shoes, coats, hats and bags...

At December 21, 2010 at 3:12 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Cottage cheese & baked potatoes!

At December 21, 2010 at 3:12 PM , Blogger Katie said...

LOL I dance on my treadmill sometimes, but this is alone at my house, I don't know if I would be able to do it at the gym.

No Cottage Cheese for me.

This isn't about me, but it is random and I wanted to tell you, I only know one other Janae, and she is also from Utah :)

At December 21, 2010 at 3:13 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I looooove cottage cheese!!!! Especially with peaches!
A random thing about me is that I have this thing against odd numbers. Like I always take an even number of steps, split my food in half, have an even number of ice cubes, put the tv volume on an even number, etc. OCD much?

At December 21, 2010 at 3:21 PM , Blogger Sarah said...

I hate cottage cheese!!! something about the texture...

Since you gave me permission to rant, all I have to say is I am sooo sick of being sick. It stinks, especially so close to the Holidays!

At December 21, 2010 at 3:24 PM , Blogger lauren said...

I dont think I like cottage cheese. But I'll try it sometime!

My random thing is I'm addicted to purses and bags and wallets! I have way more than any one person needs...

At December 21, 2010 at 3:25 PM , Blogger Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Lovin your Tangent Tuesdays idea!!

CC and pineapple are a fav combo of mine! I also like to add CC to chili for extra protein in place of regular ole cheese.

Tangent: I feel better/healthier if there is something green with every meal.
*Ex: Granny Smith apple versus Fuji, both super good for you, but the green thing gets me!

At December 21, 2010 at 3:27 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I have a request. Will you puh-lease do a post with your arm work out? I neeeeed mine to get toned like that! Um also, I know I have said this a million times, but your wedding pictures always leave me speechless! You are so gorgeous! And I love how all of your bridesmaids had different dresses!

At December 21, 2010 at 3:31 PM , Blogger Val said...

I don't like cottage cheese, but i do love me some yogurt and fruit :)

I sweat in my eye balls too it looks like I have pink eye when I leave the gym!

Random Facts:

I won't drink the last bit of water at the bottom of the water bottle
i'm obsessed with pink
i like to take pictures of my self all sweaty at the gym
I don't like cheese on my burgers but I will eat cheese on tacos, and burritos.

that's enough for now ;)

Love yoru wedding pictures

At December 21, 2010 at 3:40 PM , Blogger Shannon said...

Mmm, so agree cottage cheese was supposed to be paired with fruit. Pineapple, bananas, apples, peaches... this morning my cottage cheese has ground flaxseed, splenda, vanilla, and Cascadian Farms cinnamon raisin granola.

3 random things about me:
I am very picky about my cottage cheese. I like the low fat, small curd cottage cheese, and certain brands are definitely out. I got some of the single serve ones a while ago thinking "This is great! Now I won't be tempted to eat right out of the carton!" ...yeah, it was gross.
If I eat fruit snacks, skittles, or anything colored I have to sort it into each color and eat each color individually.
You wouldn't know it if you saw my room and desk right now, but I absolutely hate clutter. It stresses me out most the time.

At December 21, 2010 at 3:53 PM , Blogger Jogging with Fiction said...

not a big fan of the cottage cheese. Any other cheese, sign me up, but there's something about the consistency that I can't handle.

Random about me: I have two different thumbs. One looks normal, the other one looks like a toe. I know, gross.

At December 21, 2010 at 3:59 PM , Blogger Caroline said...

Love cottage cheese non fat only and love it with raw carrots
Things about me:
1. sadly I eat the exact same thing every day for all 3 meals
2. I have never been drunk
3 I never finish my cups of coffee

At December 21, 2010 at 4:12 PM , Blogger Nicole said...

i have that same sports bra.

& the most random thing about me... i have a birth mark on my right butt cheak & it looks like a #12. i am serious too.

hows that for random knowledge about a new stalker? hahahhahaha

I love cottage cheese with lots n lots of peper! mmmmmm :)

At December 21, 2010 at 4:13 PM , Blogger ms. caboo said...

I have a fabulous dark purple couch that I love dearly.

I eat my cottage cheese with just pepper on it. I like chopped up green onions in it, too. No fruit, though.

I had bruschetta for breakfast this morning since I skipped dinner last night and was hungry for dinner stuff at 7:30 this morning.

At December 21, 2010 at 4:24 PM , Blogger Pemberton Family said...

I love cottage cheese and I love it with fruit. Both my little boys do too. Healthy stuff! I may have to try the pepper everyone is raving about.

At December 21, 2010 at 4:25 PM , Blogger Colleen said...

I love cottage cheese! I eat it plain though... or maybe with some pineapple - weird, but yummo!

I love coffee.. I think I should have written coffee running blog instead

I love purple, too!! Funnily enough, it's Billy's favorite color. (There's one weird thing about Billy for you.) I carried a purple bouquet on the day we officially got married with traditional vows and a purple dress when we said our hand-written vows in Italy. I love it! I'm wearing a purple shirt right now. It's my favorite tee from Target. And now I'm wondering why I didn't find a purple shirt to wear during the half marathon...but blue did me well. AND my running shoes have purple accent so that counts. How's that for a tangent? :)

At December 21, 2010 at 4:54 PM , Blogger racing dawn said...

no cottage cheese for this girl. but i could watch step up 1 & 2 on repeat mode for it...

Do you like Cottage Cheese? What do you eat with your cottage cheese?
-Yes. Used to hate it. Only really like it sweet but it's good w/ ranch dip mix mixed in.

-my fave colors are black and purple.
-i have workout clothes, shoes and a change of outfit in the car w/ me at all times. occasionally i put on one of those items and forget to replace it and usually that is the one i need.
-people constantly come up to me in the gym and say 'how can someone so small have so much sweat in them?'...i blame being italian ;)


At December 21, 2010 at 5:16 PM , Blogger Heather said...

Don't hate me...but I hate cottage cheese!! I do like purple, though. :) Love your wedding dress - beautiful!

Randomness: I am really anal when I run. I have to run on the left side of whoever I am running with. I'm weird. The funny thing, my running buddy likes the right! Perfect! :)

Great post. I just found your blog and am your newest follower. :)

At December 21, 2010 at 5:27 PM , Blogger J said...

I am not a fan of CC. I honestly can't tell you why, but I had it a long time ago and just do not like the texture.

I have driven the same car since I was 16, until this past fall when the headlights switch broke and it cost way more to fix it than the car was worth so I got a new car. So i cleaned out the trunk. I used to keep an old pair of soccer cleats and basketball shoes in my car. Don't know why, I mean I did play bball for 13+ years but its not like I just happen across a game a lot and need shoes.

I should probably keep extra socks on my car because I always forget those when I pack for the gym.

I love Edward and Jacob both. I wish I could combine them together for the perfect man!

I wanted to be one of Janet Jackson's dancers when I was growing up.....seriously.

I want to be a part of the Sisterhood of the Traveling pants

I like cottage cheese with yogurt. I always buy a big tub from Costco, but never eat it though.

At December 21, 2010 at 5:56 PM , Blogger Regina said...

Love your tangent Tuesday idea! I should do something like that, I always go off into random tangents while talking it seems like.
Love cottage cheese! I just eat it with some fresh ground pepper on top-it grosses my hubby out.
I could watch Friends daily and never tire of it. (Thank goodness I have all 10 seasons- I went through them all when my youngest was a baby. she would NEVER sleep unless I held her, so I would watch episode upon episode it would seem like for those first 3 months :)

*I LOVE chocolate milk, but I don't like chocolate ice cream.
*I am a twin, but I think I like being a twin better and value it more than my sister does.
*I am a big sweater, too. I have to strip out of my sweaty clothes as soon as I'm done my workout or it makes me feel like my skin gets yucky.

(oh - and I tried to email you back from the comment you last left on my blog, but I'm not sure it worked.)

I dance while on the eliptical, all the time. It's why I exercise in the dark room. I'm that crazy person who is dancing while lip syncing furiously to crazy pop music its awesome/awkward haha.

At December 21, 2010 at 6:19 PM , Blogger Rachel Marie said...

Cottage cheese and unsweetened applesauce are as essential as my oatmeal/banana mess that I can't live without. Also CC with grapes-that equals happy me also.

Random factoid about me is that I can't read just one book. I usually have three or four going at once. And my bookshelves are in alphabetical order first by author, then title within each author. What can I say? I'm a dork.

At December 21, 2010 at 6:20 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Love me some cottage cheese. I use it for protein pancakes/waffles. I like to put fruit in it too! I just put a couple of spoonfuls in my meatballs that I cooked tonight. They were gooooood.

I sweat a ton too! I just noticed it this year, after I started spinning. ;) I love it! I sweat on the top of my hands...weird. Do you?

I love love love cottage cheese!
I eat it with anything and everything. I think it's the perfect side to any meal (my boyfriend doesn't agree). I think I could live off cottage cheese and be pretty content.

One weird thing about me? I can bend my toe all the way back so it touches my foot (or pretty darn close). Gross, I know.

I am a disgusting sweaty mess after I workout! My husband can't believe that anyone would stink as much as I do after a big sweat fest. He doesn't think it's normal. Thank heavens he loves me anyways.

Also, when i sleep on my stomach, my right foot twitches back and forth. By itself. I don't know why but I like it.

At December 21, 2010 at 7:41 PM , Blogger Carrie said...

I lovelove that you have peanut butter with EVERYTHING. Me too :D I eat cottage cheese, but not with as much joy and excitement as I enjoy pb. I once put pb on a clementine after I ran out of apples to put it was not quite what I expected but I rolled with it.
I sweat so much too. Photos just can't do it justice, but if you are ever in Ontario, you should come to hot yoga. I should be isolated in a kiddie pool or something.
I love dancing. Mostly I do it seated/alone in my living room because in real life I'm shy sometimes. I don't do it on the treadmill because one time early in my running life I got too into my tunes, I bailed so so badly. Not only did I fall onto my face on the treadmill, I actually got treadmill burn and was thrown off into the row of bikes behind me. And the gym was full of dudes. Mortified. However, I got back on the proverbial horse...okay, I only ran to escape to the change room.

Darn it, blogger ate my first attempt at a comment.

i LOVE cottage cheese, if I was near you when you were eating that, there may have been a battle over it ;-) Today I had it for a snack with apples, cinnamon, and apple pie spice.

I like purple, in fact when I was little, I wanted a purple room, sister wanted pink. We both got stuck with pink and to this day, my room is STILL pink at home complete with awful pink carpet.
I don't really have a favorite color, but I do have alot of pink stuff, especially gym stuff (gloves, gym bag, gym key lanyard, etc). My itouch case is purple though

Ummmm cottage cheese + spaghetti sauce and olives. It tastes like lasagna!! Seriously. Trust me.

Have you ever tried cottage cheese mixed with canned tuna, in place of mayonnaise? One of my favorite meals as a kid, and it still makes me smile.

I haven't been to Sundance, but it's on my must-do lifetime list!

I am not a fan of cottage cheese...something about the texture just kills me.

3 things to share:
1. I love napping, like I wish I could nap all day long.
2. I know the lyrics to soooo many rap songs and am not afraid to bust them out.
3. I am obsessed with McDonald's vanilla iced coffee.

Nasty! Cottage cheese with fruit?? We can no longer be twins. Sorry! I see now I'm going to have to return that fabulous Christmas gift I bought you. No, no, don't try to tell me you HATE fruit and cottage cheese now. It's too late.

Purple makes everything better! I'm confused about why you don't have a purple Speck case for your phone, though!! I love cottage cheese with pineapple, but no other fruit. I love PB with apples and bananas, but no other fruit. PB and cottage cheese do not belong in the same meal.

Loved the wedding pic you posted. Love purple! Purple is my favorite!

At December 22, 2010 at 12:30 AM , Blogger XLMIC said...

LazyMan's Lasagna... cooked pasta (any kind) with cottage cheese spooned into it and sauce poured on it... right from the jar. I used to eat a lot of cottage cheese. I'm with the others... PB and cottage cheese? together? not really even willing to try that! lol

At December 22, 2010 at 4:56 AM , Blogger Katefreak said...

Purple is my favorite color. My bridesmaid dresses are also purple. :)

Three random things about me?

1. I cannot get enough Disney. Seriously. Disney movies, Disney merchandise, I was even proposed to at DisneyWorld. Love it.
2. I always say hello to the water when I turn the shower on after a workout. I know, totally weird, and I just noticed it the other day. But it's true.
3. I hate talking on the phone. Drives me nuts. If I'm on the phone longer than 3 minutes, I can guaruntee I'm looking for a way to get off the phone in my head.

And I hate CC. Grosses me out.

Love your blog! It is super funny and inspiring. Anyway, I love cottage cheese and family and I have a breakfast item we jokingly call the "triple threat"...yogurt/cottage cheese, fruit, walnuts, and raw oatmeal...not sure why we named it triple threat because it has five ingredients but it was a catchy name!

At December 22, 2010 at 6:02 AM , Blogger Eat, Watch, Run said...

Cottage cheese w/ splenda, cinnamon, and a little bit of sugar free maple syrup = tasty taste

Random fact about me: I sleep with a cell phone on the night stand in case would be home invaders cut the phone lines. <--- watches too many horror movies

At December 22, 2010 at 6:18 AM , Blogger The "ME" in this team said...

I love cottage cheese in my spaghetti and on top of a hotdog roll. I know weird but oh so good. I discovered the spaghetti on a hot dog roll when we moved into our new house and I couldn’t find the silverware to eat the spaghetti after we already made it. So instead of unpacking more boxes we just used the rolls we already had. So now we toast the hotdog rolls add a little butter and garlic salt and pile the spaghetti and cc on it. DELISH and no need to use a fork. HAHA

I can’t stand finishing drinks at the bottom of a can or bottle. ICK and I also can’t stand using public restrooms ESP on airplanes. I will hold it for days if I have to. So many nasty things run in my head. OK That might be a crazy thing not a random weird thing. I have to use a paper towel in public restrooms such as work.

Love using cottage cheese instead of ricotta in lasagna. I have one-woman dance parties on my tm (it's in the garage so lucky for me, nobody sees that mess) Looks like your having fun!

At December 22, 2010 at 8:08 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

haha, this made me laugh. And reminded me that I haven't had cottage cheese in a long time! There are way too many weird, random things about me. So I will just share one. I always set my alarm to a time with a "2" at the end. ALWAYS. because you know, if I don't bad things will happen... :)

I love cottage cheese! I prefer it pure, however. I mix everything into my greek yougurt, though... does that count?

I love purple too, but I have to be careful not to wear too much or my kids make fun of me! Their school nurse ONLY wears purple.

I love cottage cheese with a little bit of tomato salsa, and then on a warm pitta bread. Mmmmmm :)
