I woke up wanting a fuss-free breakfast. I dug around and found a Quaker Instant Oatmeal pack + I was immediately sold. I’m a huge fan of Quaker. Did you know that a lot of Quaker products, including some flavors of Oatmeal Squares Cereal, are actually made in Iowa?
After breakfast I headed to work to partake in a pool/water safety day with a group of 2nd graders from a local elementary school. I had packed a sandwich + a piece of fruit for lunch, but I ended up enjoying two slices of pepperoni pizza with the work gang instead.
It looks something like this:
I made a quick dinner of Fridge Nachos before we headed out for the evening.
I layered some sautéed zucchini and onions on top of a bed of Garden of Eden Blue Chips. Then I added the appropriate nacho toppings: cheese, Greek yogurt + scallions.
It was a perfect dinner and significantly healthier than any restaurant version I can think of!
Wine + Exploration
We headed to Matt’s sister’s husband’s parent’s house (did you follow that?) for some wine + conversation.
We enjoyed some red as we poured over their photos from their trip to the Galapagos. Aside from discussing their nature exploration they also allowed me to explore their Canon Rebel.
Matt + I have toyed with the idea of buying a SLR for a while now, but my shaky track record with electronics has held us back from taking the leap until now. With the amount of traveling we do and with the quantity of photos I now take for the blog, I think we’re ready to make the purchase. Matt is meticulous when it comes to electronics, so we’re still in the research and review phase, but I think we’re getting close to a decision!
What kind of camera do you use? Do you swear by it or do you wish you did more research + reviews?
We brought over some watermelon to snack on throughout the evening and I ended up having two juicy, fresh pieces this size.
What are you built for?
Last weekend I had a side conversation with an instructor from my coaching class. We were chatting up fitness and sports related injuries when we stumbled upon the topic of running. I mentioned my love/hate relationship with running and the occasional desire I have to run a longer race such as a half or full marathon.
He mentioned that I wasn’t exactly built for running and all 5 feet of me immediately agreed. Of course I’m not built for running. But then I thought more about it. What exactly am I made for then? I’m naturally good at a few things and I inherently enjoy a few sports.
What are your thoughts? What do you think you are ‘built’ for? Do you think the harder something is to do the more important it is to do it?
Anyone else going to try to score Healthy Living Summit tickets tonight?
