I’ve been completely out of motivation since I returned home from St. Thomas. Today, I decided I would write down a To Do List, and give myself a reward if I completed everything by the end of the day. So far I’ve vacuumed, answered a few emails I’ve been putting off, filled out my parking permit request form, and am now writing my recap blog. Which means I’ve got a lot more to do (clean room, clean bathroom, SHRED, and write today’s blog). I’ll get it done, though, and my reward will be one glass of coke zero—yes, I’m bribing myself with a not-so-healthy diet soda. I’ve really got to get MOTIVATED! School starts soon, so I need to kick my rear in gear.
Now, here are some random things I ate this past week.
Frozen banana soft serve. This turned out really good, but I had to use 2 bananas in order for it to work in our little food processor.
Pasta with fresh home made basil pesto.
No, I didn’t eat her, but she just always looks so cute.
She was patiently waiting for me to let her inside the house.
My first bagel with Almond Butter. I wasn’t so sure about my previous experience with AB, but I discovered that I love love love it with something sweet. My new favorite is to dip grapes in a little dab of it.
Of course, there has been plenty of this old standby.
Peaches are in season and YUM!
More pesto with pasta. This time I added a tbs. ground flax. I love adding flax to things like this, but tend to forget until it’s too late.
This was my dinner last night. It was delightful for sure.
We’ve got a huge basket full of yellow squash, so we had squash casserole, and it turned out fabulously. There was also chicken topped with pesto, and a chopped carrot wish some hummus.
Again, this is not something I ate, but it will be showing up on the blog soon enough in finished form.
Morgan and I went to paint pottery, and I have been wanting to paint some little birdies for a while now. The pencil marks will burn off (I know they will, but it always scares me nonetheless), and hopefully it will turn out well. I love painting pottery every once in a while with Morgan, even though I am far from an artist.
So there you have it—a little taste of what I’ve been up to this past week. I will be back tonight with today’s eats, so please forgive me for being lax over the past week and come back :) I hope your Friday is going well!!!
