I am lame.
This is my 2nd draft of this post. The first one involved a ridiculous story about my breakfast fighting my lunch and dinner for the affections of my morning time apple. Where I come up with these things, I do not know.
What I do know is that (a) I couldn’t post that story without hanging my head in shame, and (b) this bowl of Pumpkin Mocha Fauxmeal was meh.
1 1/2 packets Cream of Wheat
1 cup water
1/3 cup pumpkin
drizzle of agave + maple syrup
1 Starbucks Via instant coffee packet
While I was snarfing taking my time eating, I looked over and saw the hazy morning light beautifully illuminating my refrigerator. Naturally, my instinct was to take some shots and turn them into a collage for the blog. I mean, what else would you do?
Speaking of Cambodia, here is my shameless plug to donate and help build a well in Cambodia.
Also, that picture is of me and my Grandma from a road trip we took to the Badlands of South Dakota in the early 90’s. To this day, it is one of my favorite pictures of us, especially since Thanksgiving weekend marks the 1-year anniversary of her passing. I LOVE YOU G-MA!
Snack was another perfectly crunchy and tart organic Braeburn apple, ranked #2 just behind my fave Haralson.
Lunchtime involved the concoction I conjured up last night, which I have deemed Spinach Red Curry Lentils over brown rice and topped with roasted kabocha squash. Even though I would have made Julia Child shudder the way I accidentally oversalted the rice + lentils, it was still delish.
Dessert was a handful of yogurt raisins, cranberries, raisins cashews and almonds, while afternoon snackage involved a Clif Bar in the flavor of Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch. Not bad but not my fave.
Oh so luckily, I was on-call tonight at the PT job, but it turns out they didn’t need me! Woowoo! However, the excitement was short-lived, because for some reason, I’ve been kind of meh today.
To cheer myself up, I roasted shiteload of veggies – brussel sprouts + carrot fries!
It is perhaps my fave dinner I’ve had in awhile.
Now, I am going to hit up Dave Farmar for a yoga podcast and bake my brains out + frost a bajillion mini birthday cupcakes for my co-worker. Hopefully that should cheer me up!
- The flossing challenge instigated by Andrea + I is going well. I will admit I am not flossing everyday, but I am averaging every other day. I consider that a vast improvement from not doing it at all ;)!
- The yoga challenge Angharad and I decided to start is also going well. The first week, I made it to yoga 2/3 times, but this week I am already at 2/3 with yoga scheduled for tonight AND tomorrow, which makes it 4/3 this week (making up for the one I missed last week)!
Alright kiddos, sorry to be meh, but in the meantime…
