For some reason the majority of my passwords are set to expire around the same time, so I had to reset them all earlier this week. I keep an excel sheet with all of my logins/ids and passwords so I can keep track. Well I failed to write down a few and I am locked out of my school email and my work computer! These day every password needs an upper case, a lower case, a symbol, a number, and you can’t repeat them – how in the world are we supposed to keep track?
Anyways yesterday was a bustling day filled good eats and Matt even made dinner! But let’s rewind:
- 1/3 c Oatmeal
- 1/3 c Soy Milk
- 1/3 c Water
- 1 tbsp PB
- 1 tbsp Strawberry Preserves
- Sprinkle of Chia Seeds
Yes they were microwaved & yes it does look like they experienced some sort of oat explosion in the process.
Snack + Lunch
During Stats I snacked on a kiwi while I brainstormed about what I was going to eat for lunch.
This salad is up for nomination for a couple awards:
The Best Use of Leftovers
The Best Combination of Random Flavors
And The Best Tasting Salad for Someone Who Was Not in a Salad Mood
- Leftover Hamburger
- Blue Cheese Crumbles
- Newmans Own Mango Salsa
Snack + Dinner
At work I broke for a Luna Protein bar. I found these babies being sold by the 6 pack at Target if you are still not able to find them in your grocery stores!
After working all afternoon and early evening I headed home to Matt who made dinner!
Matt’s Man Dinner
Roasted Red Potatoes, Zucchini, & …Shake & Bake!
I have to be honest, I was a little hesitant about eating Shake & Bake for more than a couple of reasons, but Matt is such a good sport about eating what I make every single day so I said what the hell. Plus he was nice enough to cook me dinner for a change!
Matt grew up eating Shake & Bake (although I was a stranger to it until last night!) so this was definitely a tribute to his childhood meals. Although it probably won’t be a staple in my children’s diet I can allow him to enjoy boxed, processed, sodium filled meat breading once in a while, eh?
Growing up most of our dinners revolved around a meat, rice, and some vegetable – obviously heavy on the first two. But we did have some other normal rotations like pasta.
What was your ‘dinner’ situation like when you were growing up? Shake & Bake a la Matt? Meat, Carb, Veggie a la Kate? Or something completely different?
Also, does anyone have any suggestions on how to take decent photos once the sun has set? Without natural lighting I can hardly capture a decent shot of my dinner. Perhaps there is a solution besides tossing my camera out the window and spending 1/2 a grand on a new one?
Love Your Body
Day 9: Love Your Body
Take 5 minutes to zero in on your breathing. Count the seconds it takes you to inhale and take note. Then count the seconds it takes you to exhale. Again, take note. If the amount is not equal pick a number such as 4, and work to equalize your breath.
Day 10: Love Your Body
Take off your shoes and go for a stroll outside. Allow your feet to feel different sensations, temperatures, and textures.
I included today’s and tomorrows Love Your Body tip in today’s post since tomorrow I have a special swim related post headed your way. If you are new to swimming or dream about completing a triathlon you will definitely be interested in tomorrows post.
Anyone have any exciting plans for tomorrow? Perhaps taking of your shoes for an outdoor stroll is in order!
