I find that reading all of these food blogs makes me super hungry!! But - I get lots of great ideas from them too!
This week, not too much to report! I'm excited for Sunday's race. The weather looks like it is going to be great and I just want to get out there and have fun. I haven't worn my iPod all summer - the only headphones that I like are my hatphones, so I'm not sure what to do about music!
I went back to the slower lane where people are friendly and there is less time between sets. What was happening was we'd make the intervals but when the set was over everyone would be BSing. There is nothing I can stand less than just sitting around BSing! And there is little of that in the lane I am swimming in now. Does anyone else do masters? Where are the young people? Why does it end up being 40 and 50 somethings? I always feel like a kid in these practices.
I started teaching swim lessons last week at the Y and the kids are cute - ages 3-5. Nick goes to the daycare at the Y while I'm teaching. Along with that, I'm doing some online grading for PRAXIS (teacher tests) and tutoring. So I feel like I'm working part-time (very little) which is nice. I'm finally settling into staying at home and feeling comfortable with my decision for right now. I'm very nervous as to when it comes time to decide what next.
My biggest problem time is dinner time. For some reason late afternoon I just pick and pick and pick. Nick's bedtime starts at 6:30 and takes an hour, so by the time we eat it is 8pm and I am usually full from picking but I eat anyway - then feel stuffed. It's all good food for the most part, but too much of it I guess. I am really going to try hard to count those calories again.
One thing I tried this week was GROATS (above). They were tasty - they take long so I started them and then went on the treadmill, they were done at the end. I like oats just as much - I felt like it was a smaller portion for the same # of calories.
Also, I made Nick yogurt! Whole milk yogurt from whole milk. The first time was a bust but this week it worked out. I don't have to spend crazy money on YoBaby! (+ that has added sugar).
Enjoy your end of the week and weekend! I have some Nuun to review - look for that soon!
