Water and sweat, that is. I think sweating and thirst and the two biggest reasons a workout makes one feel much better when suffering from a hangover. I certainly felt much better after some deep breathing, sweating and H2O chugging on the elliptical this afternoon.
I had the most miserable morning – but not because I felt icky – because technology was fighting with me! After the Windows Live Writer troubles, my firewall and my Eye-Fi card began a power struggle that shut down my internet access over and over. After 2 hours of restarting my computer over and over with different settings, I finally came to a resolution.
At 1:30 I still hadn’t exercised, showered or had lunch! I wasn’t really hungry due to my upset digestive tract so I had a mini LaraBar as a snack and went to the gym. This was my first time trying pistachio flavor – it was just OK.
I came home from the gym craving veggies and had to make do with what we had on hand:
Carrots, celery and pickles with the last of my homemade hummus –
And I got my banana-oat fix in with some Fage topped with a sliced banana, a few wheatberries, and about 1/4 a cup of some muesli I bought from a bulk bin at EF ages ago.
But little did I know that I had no yet gotten my fill of banana today – this delightful tin arrived in the mail from VeggieGirl!
And it was filled with 6 Banana Fig Pistachio Muffins!!!
I was going to keep myself in suspense a few hours and have one for dessert tonight, but the husband decided he wanted one ASAP and after I saw him enjoying his, I had to try one too 🙂
They were definitely the moistest muffins I have ever had – and you guys know how I like doughy moist things!! The banana flavor was outstanding and I liked how the pistachios had a real chomp to them.
But the shining moment was when I discovered a FIG POCKET!! I love, love figs and this little guy had been perfectly preserved in the middle of the muffin. It was like eating a healthy jelly donut 🙂
Thank you so much VeggieGirl for sending the treats!!
I am finally showered and am off to the grocery store!
