Heat = Indecisive Appetite

by Courtney on July 8, 2010

Yikes! Sorry for the backup today — I had a pretty busy afternoon, followed by a softball game, so I have been on the GO GO GO! Let’s get a quick recap…


I swear, this heat is playing games with my appetite today. I really wasn’t in mood, again, for much of anything once lunchtime rolled around, so I decided to stick with my “Monday Usual” selections.

A vanilla flavored Chobani, topped with strawberries & blueberries.

And eventually a little granola – YUMM. :-P

Along with some mixed veggies + roasted red pepper hommus.

A little later in the afternoon, Cody & I had some bonding time. He was not very happy when he saw his overexposure from last night, so I promised I’d make it up to him by posting some cuter, more “appropriate” photos. He obliged with some poses for the camera, and he’s a happy camper now. :)

“Hi Mom!”


Tonight, Jay and I had a softball game in the sweltering heat, but we won, so it’s acceptable. AND, I got myself a nice little double – WOOT WOOT! :-D Since our game was at 6:15, I definitely needed a little something to hold my appetite before we left, so I made myself a cereal combo bowl: Quaker Oatmeal Squares + Kashi Heart to Heart with vanilla almond milk.

After the game was over, the team enjoyed our usual cookout — I ended up having a piece of chicken off the grill with some yummy peppers and onions (Mom pulled out the big guns tonight – sausage & peppers + onions, grilled chicken, AND hot dogs…all out in the parking lot of the softball fields. You don’t see many teams doing that!) ;)

By the time we got home, Jay and I were still pretty warm, so we just finished up a nice nighttime swim. Normally, I’m not a night swimmer – sunshine and heat and normal necessities, but the hubby wanted some company, so I joined in. It was actually pretty refreshing and enjoyable, except for the fact that I was the happy recipient of THIS gigantic bug bite. GRR! :mad: Whenever I get bug bites, they grow ridiculously massive and itch like crazy. I’ve already tried making “X’s” with my fingernail in it numerous times; I try to tell myself it helps — whether or not it really does, who knows?!? ;)

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thursday! One more day til the weekend folks – WOO HOO! :-D

Dude, my appetite (most notably for sweet treats) has been off the chains in this heat. Chocolate, popcorn, caramel on a spoon: give it to me. My belly wishes for a cold snap right quick.
I’m sorry about your bug bite :( :( I’ll offer up the ol’ Big Fat Greek Wedding tip– WINDEX!

HAHAHA – LOVE the windex cure-all! ;)
And I also love the caramel on a spoon – I have some in my fridge right now I can share!

Tell people it’s a beauty mark ;)

I had a very similar lunch: carrots, cut up cuke, and two pieces of fruit. I think I may have O.Ded on berries last week if that’s even possible!

Haha, geez girl, you really must have enjoyed those berries – I dunno if I could ever O.D. on ‘em! (Then again, ya never know!) ;)
