Sorry for the backup on posts this morning guys. I woke up early this morning to get ready for work, but instead was welcomed with a massive migraine headache. 😳 I have no idea what could have caused it, but this baby has been no fun, so I actually ended up having to take the day off of work, and I headed back to bed to try to rest up. Luckily things are slowly improving 🙂
I didn’t have too much of an appetite this morning (migraines tend to do that sometimes?) so I kept things light and simple with a cereal combo bowl (Quaker Oatmeal Squares + Kashi Go Lean) with light vanilla soy milk.
I also had some fresh mixed berries on the side which were delicious. Jay found these blueberries at the store yesterday for only $1.99…I was so psyched that he knew well enough to get 2 containers 😀
I’m starting to get some good questions coming in! Here’s a few:
Q: What are your thoughts on soy milk? I’ve read so much controversy that I’ve switched to almond milk…
A:I’ve also read a lot of the controversy on soy milk, and I’ve also read a lot of the benefits. While I certainly wouldn’t consider myself well-versed on the pros & cons of soy milk, I’ve decided that for now, I’m going to stick with it. The amount that I consume during any given week is pretty small (maybe 3-4 cups total?) so at this point I’m not concerned. There are a few side effects that I’ve read about, however, that I have experienced, so I am thinking about cutting it out for a week or two to see if I notice any difference.
Q: What is one of your favorite “guilty pleasure” foods?
A: If I’m going sweet, it’s most definitely a BIG ice cream flurry with caramel, oreos, & cookie dough. If I’m going salty, then it’s gotta be sweet potato fries. They’re my favorite!
Q: What is one of your favorite magazines:
A: I currently have subscriptions to Self, Shape, Glamour, & Cooking Light. (Yes, too many, but I like them all!)
Q: When are you coming back to Burlington, VT? lol 🙂
A: Hopefully soon! Jay and I had such a GREAT time when we visited back in April, but it was a little chilly so we didn’t get to do everything we hoped. We’re thinking maybe sometime over the summer…if we do, I’ll let you know, Kara!
Q: What’s your favorite TV show (besides Cougar Town)?
A: One Tree Hill!!! I’m obsessed with this show…I couldn’t BELIEVE the ending last week for the season finale! I cried like a baby 😳 hehe
Keep those questions comin’! 😀
I’m going to take it easy for the morning and hopefully be back up and running soon!
