Heat = Indecisive Appetite

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. 😛

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! 😀 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! 😡 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! 😀

    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!

    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 I’m always taking weird pictures of my dog. Not because I want to, but because she lays like an obese pig haha. Your picture of hummus makes me want to drive to the store and get some now!
