Scary! We’ve got the perfect storm out there – midsummer Thunder + Lightening! I thought it was just our neighbors truck revving until I started to see the flash of lights every few seconds. Now it’s rattling the house!
Now, where did I leave off?
Around 2:00 Kelsey and I decided to do YogaDownload in our classroom! It was empty and we closed the door and turn down the lights and did a great 30 minute Hip Opening Flow (I think #4). I can see pre-Foodservice yoga becoming a regular activity….
Here are all of my packed snacks. PB Larabar, YouBar, Strawberries, Trail Mix, Apple.
I ate the Strawberries at 5:00 and then cracked open the YouBar at 6:30. But much to my disappointment, the YouBar was all glued to the wrapper. It would have been gross to be pulling it off with my teeth during class, so I put it away and got out the LaraBar. I’m not sure what I’ll do with the YouBar goo. Oatmeal? (I didn’t eat the trail mix or apple.)
I did get one of my tests back and was very disappointed 😥 A lot of the questions were numbers + stats, and I got them wrong. And a few were just strange. Bummer.
But I came home to a fun surprise!
Have you heard of them? All the info: Popchips.com. These girls LOVE them. (And I have never seen a more high quality music video!!!!)
So I knew I had leftover navy beans on the menu tonight, but I wanted to try the Pop Chips too, so I made a tasting plate meal. I tried the Salt + Pepper ones to start with a simple flavor:
I don’t think I have an opinion yet. I’m going to save it for my next bag. I didn’t dislike them, but they weren’t the most amazing things ever. They were really kind of like pork rinds! But I can see how they will grow on me, so I’ve got to try another flavor in the next few days.
1 bag (this pile) was only 100 calories –
I turned about half a cup of navy beans into insta-baked beans with some Country Bob’s, ketchup and Worcestershire.
And incorporated some veggies with a Sabra hummus bowl –
Per Wednesday late-night solo dinner fashion, I photographed and plopped myself on the couch with a House Hunters. I was really hungry when I sat down at 9:00 and now am too full to want to get in bed at the moment!
And had this piece of White Chocolate Cherry Swirl for dessert. I set off the smoke alarm and hopefully did not wake the Baker, who went to bed at 8:30!
Score On Scordo!
Scordo.com, a practical living “how-to” blog, did a feature post on KERF! Cool!
I definitely notice a difference in my hunger levels throughout the month and this blurb from this month’s SHAPE suggested why:
“The International Journal of Obesity found that women taken in between 90 to 500 extra calories during the two weeks before their period. ‘Our research shows that a woman’s stomach empties about 25 percent faster in the two weeks before her period than it does in the weeks immediately following it,” says Ixchel Brennan…This may be due to a rise in the levels of the hormone progesterone right after ovulation.'”
