No, not in that sense…not “I’m down today.” Wednesday was sort of a down time day, I guess.
I couldn’t get motivated to do much of anything…so I Didn’t! I don’t think I even went out of the house except to put out the recycling bin.
I should have been doing some of the many things that I need to do, but I suppose I’m looking at this week as still part of the holiday.
I probably shouldn’t have gotten out of my pj’s…could have saved some clean clothes!
Just remembered something I haven’t talked about that I’m enjoying. My friend Gail and I are both vegetarians. We’ve been discussing the fact that we both probably need more protein than what we usually get. We decided to order a protein powder to see how we liked it.
Naturade Pea Protein. Gail had done some research and decided this was a good choice to start. It certainly gives us some protein!
20 grams per serving and a serving costs us 3 points on Weight Watchers. Not a bad deal in my opinion.
I have a Magic Bullet and thought that would be a great way to whip up a quick smoothie. My problem is that when I would be wanting to make a smoothie, Ralph is asleep and it would probably wake him. Being a thoughtful wife, I looked for another alternative.
I had forgotten about this shaker bottle I had gotten along with a previous protein powder purchase. Can’t add fruit to it, but… 1 cup of almond milk, 1/3 of a cup of fat-free vanilla yogurt and 2 Tbsp of the pea protein powder makes a pretty tasty shake. It costs me 6 Points on WW and I get 23.3 grams of protein. It’s actually pretty filling too.
One of these days I need to test the theory of whether the Magic Bullet would actually wake Ralph up. Now that I’ve started this, I’d really like to try some fruit or shock of shocks…a Green Smoothie with some spinach thrown in for good measure. Now that I’ve started, I can’t stop!!
I’m slogging my way through Pride and Prejudice and with every page re-thinking my plan of reading “classics” this year. I refuse to stop reading the first book I’ve started for the year but to be honest, I’d like to. After I’ve finished I’ll give a little overview of what I think. My Mother loved it. I love my Mother. That’s as far as I can go with that thought!!
Happy Thursday! The Bennet Family is driving me Crazy!
