My Monday is going great thanks to a great start 🙂
After breakfast, I headed to a rec center for a nutrition and excercise class for Spanish-speeking women. It’s a low-cost class that is part nutrition education part exercise (stability balls, zumba and strength training) and part weight-loss boot camp (they are weighed and have BMI, body fat and blood pressure monitored). It was a cool class!! I helped out with the weighing and body fat using a hand-held gadget.
The whole morning was in SPANISH! I had 4 years of Spanish, two in high school and two in college, but I was never that great at it and it’s been 9 years since my last class. However, I felt I did really well understanding, especially the nutrition lesson. I remember a good amount of vocab words and visuals helped a lot. Languages are cool.
[Did you know Matt read the entire Harry Potter series in Spanish before spending a summer in Mexico in college?]
I’m now back at my desk working on my whole food presentation all afternoon.
Today’s lunchbox features a bright salad with romaine + spinach, carrot, broccoli (steamed slightly to take out that cigarette ashtray bite) and some hidden almonds. All topped with Curry Honey Hummus!
Siggi’s!!! A new flavor! The company sent me a few coupons to try more flavors after seeing me try out the plain kind a few weeks ago. I was expecting it to be fruit-on-the-bottom and was surprised that it wasn’t. I would have liked a bit of chewy pom or passion fruit seeds, but that’s what granola is for, right!? The flavor was great (akin to the passion fruits I ate in the back of a safari truck in Kenya!) and only 11 grams of sugar and 16 grams of protein met my approval with a thumbs up.
With Nature’s Path Hemp Plus crunch.
SO – I have 2 packets of coupons to give away!!!! But here’s the problem: the blog giveaways are hard to manage in that I get 400+ emails in my inbox that day andddd my blog comments tend to get really backed up (this week they were missing for a few days until I had to call my host and have a kink fixed). So I’m hesitatnt to do a “leave a comment” giveaway. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could manage entries?
Lastly, brown on brown on brown. A furry kiwi!
Happy Monday Afternoon
