How Do You Spell Hydration?

Cycle class was tough this morning because I think I started it on the tired end of the spectrum. I chugged lots of water before class, which meant that I had to leave class in the middle to use the bathroom! I came home and sipped some coconut water. And then ate water in melon form!!

Mmmm.

Feeling more hydrated now……and of course I have to go to the bathroom again!

That watermelon looks delicious! Even better than (dare I say it…) cake!

Yum! There is nothing like fresh watermelon! I hate cutting it though and taking out those black seeds. It’s time consuming but worth it in the end :)

Being a Weight Watchers Lifetime Member, I KNOW about needing to use the bathroom. Your sandwich looks tasty!

I was munching on pretzels as I read this and now I am SO thirsty!! I have a watermelon at home that I can’t wait to cut into this evening, especially after seeing your lovely wedges!

That looks like an amazing lunch! I’m going to have to try high 5 bread now.

Lol watermelon has the same effect on me, but I don’t mind because it’s SO delicious! Now I wish I had some of the one in my fridge at home here with me now. Great photos!

I never really even think about watermelon as having water in it :)

I hopped on my bicycle this morning to tool around with my 5 year old in the trailer. Forgot how that thing acts like a sail in the wind. SERIOUS wind resistance. Didn’t eat before hand either, so after about five miles I had no energy left. Had to come home and eat some fage with barney butter before I collapsed. Watermelon would have been a nice addition, but so far the watermelons here have been lackluster! Yours looks delishy!

Love love love watermelon. They’re so darn expensive here though. Well worth it for a treat!

Yummy lunch! I have yet to break into a watermelon this season – but once I do, it’ll be like an official summer kick-off! =)

Whenever I see your egg/avacado sandwich I tell myself I am going to make that and then I forget about it until I see one of your posts about it! It looks so delicious…and the same for the watermelon. I don’t really want a WHOLE watermelon though as that would be a bit much for one person.

This looks so delicious! It made me hungry, but I ate a really big portion of banana oatmeal with peanut butter like a hour ago :)

What a fabulous looking lunch!

I love watermelon but like Hope says, I hate cutting it and taking out the black seeds… so I just cut it and spit out the seeds in the plate!
Kath, the bigger the baby gets, the more bathrooms breaks you’ll HAVE to take!

This morning I didn’t have time to make myself egss (which I have been craving) so I thought I would have them for dinner. I decided pretty much on my way into work that I would have an egg and avocado sandwich for dinner! There must be some sort of egg and avocado combo fever in the air!

Did you know watermelon is a natural diuretic? I just found that out. Maybe that is why you had to go to the bathroom… of course along with the fact you have a human being reclining on your bladder. ;)

I blame the little human :)

Love that first picture with the “WATERMELON” written on it :) Also? Avocado + egg = THE BEST combo!

25 Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See May 16, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Oh what I would do for some watermelon right now…sadly I just pulled the melon out of the fridge, and it looked rather sad. Oh well, juice infused sparkling water will have to suffice !

I totally craved watermelon when I was pregnant!! ;)

Hard to believe it’s summer time! There’s nothing better than watermelon on a hot day.

I bought a couple watermelons a few weeks back and the first one was awesome, the next one so-so, but now I have watermelon cravings!

I had egg with avocado today too! It’s one of my favorites

Your lunch looks so delicious! I’m curious – do you usually eat everything on your plate? Seems like a lot of watermelon.

Reply

33 KathEats May 16, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Yeah, usually. Unless I say (dinners lately I haven’t been finishing). It was a mini watermelon if that helps with perspective?

Watermelon sounds so refreshing! However, ever since I became pregnant, I have had an aversion to eggs, and especially the whites of the eggs. I can eat a dippy egg, and force the whites down, but it is not my fave.

The best part of the sandwich, though, is the avocado and jalapenos.
