Ok, so I’ve finished my first cup of coffee and I’m just now getting to starting my post for the day. The fog that I thought was lifting is still sitting on my head. I feel ok…just Fogged.
Maybe I’m having trouble focusing because I’m thinking that I have to write a serious post tomorrow regarding the Relay For Life. Maybe it’s just because that’s the way life is lately.
Just got my second cup of Joe and I hope to get my brain in gear.
I’ve been feeling a little unfocused on the food front as well. This week has the excuse that I know I won’t be going to Weight Watchers on Saturday because the Relay will be finishing up around the time I usually go to my meeting. Of course I could go to another meeting which was my original intention but…I just don’t feel like it. Is that a valid excuse? Suppose so.
While waiting to be picked up to go out with Gail and Alice, I had a banana and read. Don’t remember how I felt as a child, but in recent years I haven’t been much of a banana fan. I keep reading how good they are for me and blah-dy blah. I keep trying. Ralph likes them so I buy them. I have to say that the bananas I’ve been getting at Aldi have totally won me over. Next time I buy them I have to take a photo. They’re totally green when I buy them, by next morning they are perfection. Don’t know how that happens. The banana fairies at work, I guess. Anyway, I am now a banana fan. They’re a great filling snack and they don’t count for any Points on WW. Ok by me!
Lunch ended up looking a lot like a breakfast.
Fiber One and peach Greek yogurt…Both from Aldi. So happy that Aldi now has the Greek in peach. They usually only have strawberry and blueberry, not my favorite. But this is really good. Can’t figure out why I LOVE strawberries and blueberries in their natural state but not things flavored with either. Ok, I’m weird and I know it.
Haven’t had a veggie dinner combo in a while, so what the heck. Let’s have one! Some of my veggies (broccoli for instance) were getting a little wilty so I needed to use them up. Cooking them this way can make even the wilty ones tasty. So…brocolli, yellow squash, red frying peppers, garlic, shredded cheese and crock pot black beans.
Some spices mixed in and of course a touch of sriracha sauce on top does the trick! This was just what I needed and it kept me satisfied for the evening. I like that in a dinner!
I think we might just have a sunny day today! Let’s hope the weather forecast holds for Friday evening/Saturday morning. It’s supposed to be sunny and clear. Last year we did the Relay in the rain and it was NOT fun. Hoping for a better outing this year.
Not sure what the day holds yet. Oh, yes…gotta get Ralph to sign some more paperwork and get it in the mail. Good luck with that!!
