Thanks for the compliments on the dress and the shoes. I was definitely out of my element with a long dress and flat shoes, but I think I dig the look.
So now I’m on my second week of What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW), courtesy of Peas and Crayons.
Let’s do this….
1 packet TJ’s apple-cinn oats, huge dash of cinn, 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats + 1/3 scoop vanilla protein powder (water added at work) (ate at 9a) + 1 travel mug of Vermont Maple + Texas Turtle coffee (with cinn and vanilla creamer (drank at 730a).
Small crisp fuji apple at 1115a (needed a snack to get me through my meeting)
Leftover quinoa/turkey burger stuff pepper from Sunday night with a huge dose of hot salsa (ate at 1230p). *This is my plate from Sunday night – I ate out of tupperware at work sans the sides.
1/2 cup of PB Puffins cereal and ~20 blueberries (at between 3-430p).
Be warned, this dinner looks like it should be for a 5 yr old. I wasn’t even going to post it because I felt a little ashamed at eating such a mish-mash of nonsense food, but hey it happens
2 cut up Smart dogs with ketchup and mustard; 1 packet of SmartPop popcorn (eaten between 6 and 730p).
Dreyer’s Slow Churned Yogurt Blend: Key Lime Pie flavor. I die. I truly die. I have been on an ice cream kick lately and this is awesome. Thanks hubby for indulging yourself – you didn’t expect I’d like this huh? I even went on the website to see the other flavors and plan on going to town on all of them. Nom.
And now on to what I can’t get rid of:
I will never be on the show Hoarders. I like to purge my closet a couple times a year. I don’t get too emotionally attached to many items.
But for some reason, I can’t let go of these:
Yep, my undergrad and grad school files. I have pared down quite a bit (I had about 4x’s this amount), but this last bit, I’m clinging too. These are my engineering notes, my cheat sheets, my tabbed supplemental notes. Upstairs I have about half of my old textbooks, too. If I throw them away, am I throwing away the knowledge that I got from them? It may seem dramatic, but I do sort of feel this way. But truth be told, it’s been at least 4 years since I consulted any of my own notes.
Sigh, is it time to let go???
Does your dinner ever resemble something more suited for a 5 yr old? One of my other faves is mac’n’cheese
Have you kept your old notes and books from school?
