I’ve been home since Thursday night and yet I haven’t even made a dent in unpacking my suitcase. I basically take out whatever I need and leave everything else as is. So in this case, the only thing I’ve taken out was my toothbrush.
I’ve been doing anything and everything to avoid it.
Including baking muffins and making ribbons.
I’ve been thinking about the lemon poppyseed muffins I made a week and a half ago nonstop, so naturally I just had to make them again.
Halfway through mixing and gathering my ingredients I realized i didn’t have any almond milk, or any milk at all. Well, I had a carton of chocolate almond milk, but I didn’t think that would work too well, so I just went with water instead.
And it worked like a charm.
Since there used to be an actual muffin inside the muffin wrapper on the left in the photo below.
Someone was being sneaky…
As for the ribbons, they’re actually for my sister and her golf team.
I’m heading to the east coast bright and early tomorrow morning (I think my flight leaves at 8am? I should probably check on that) to watch two of my sisters golf tournaments.
One of the tournaments will be benefiting Susan G. Komen and I volunteered to make her team pink ribbons to tie on their golf bags to show their support!
On another note…
With all this traveling I’ve been doing lately, I realized I’ve kinda gone off track with my normal eats.
I usually eat pretty clean and make fairly good choices, but lately I’ve been eating tons of things I wouldn’t normally eat. And I’ve been seeing and feeling the effects.
So in an effort to get back on track mentally and physically, I made lunch today.
Sweet potato + greek yogurt + broccoli
It was really simple and a good reminder of how easy it can be to put together a delicious and healthy small meal.
And My last thought of the day:
Either True Vitality, my favorite protein powder, is really popular where I live, or the Whole Foods I buy it from just doesn’t stock enough of it.
This is the 2nd time I’ve gone to buy it and both times they’ve been sold out. And not just of the chocolate flavor. They were sold out of the vanilla flavor too. I went to Whole Foods two Wednesdays ago, the day before I went to Hong Kong, and they told me they would be getting it the next day. Since I wasn’t there the next day I went back today and it was out once again. Maybe its a sign telling me I shouldn’t always wait till the last minute to buy things.
So I settled for Spiru-tein, which I tried recently and quite liked. I still like true vitality more though.
Guess I’ll try my luck again next week when I’m home.
Now I really need to go pack – or rather unpack then repack – and do some laundry, take a couple quizzes and catch up on some lectures, and perhaps participate in a couple online class discussions.
Catch ya later!
