I did not do a very good job of planning out my food to bring to work today. I’ve found that the toughest day for preparing food for work is actually Thursdays; since I don’t get home until later on Wednesday nights, it doesn’t leave much time (or desire) for prepping anything, and unless there’s leftovers, it’s hard for me to get my act together in the morning.
Luckily, I’ve done a pretty good job of stocking our fridge and kitchen with quick-fixes for all of the different food groups; so while it may not look like a big “meal” so-to-say, I was still able to throw a few things together that round out the different food groups pretty well.
A 100-calorie bag of kettle corn and a banana. (grains, fruits)
Baby carrots & celery sticks paired with Spinach Artichoke Greek yogurt veggie dip. (veggies, dairy-ish)
Unfortunately, I didn’t do a great job of packing much of a dinner, so I’m hoping that tonight doesn’t end up being a late night. Otherwise, I may have to head down the road to Moe’s for a chicken rice bowl and play around with the fancy soda machine again.
My Silly Make Up Tendencies
I realized the other day that I tend to do something kind of silly when it comes to my make up and I’m hoping that I’m not alone on this one…
It seems as though the moment I notice that any of my make up is starting to get low (i.e., I can see a tiny sliver of the bottom of the palette), I immediately think that I need to go and buy more.
This week- almost 3 months later– I finally opened two of them; and I actually have two more eyeshadows that are still untouched!
I don’t get it? I have no idea why I feel so compelled to go out and restock on these items at the first sign of running low. It’s almost like I think that it’s magically going to disappear overnight or something?
The funny thing is, I don’t feel the need to restock so quickly with everything. For example, last week I ran out of shampoo and actually had to use Jay’s for two days (sorry, babe). And there’s definitely been more than one occasion where I’ve ran out of face wash and have been stuck using…gasp…hand soap.
On a different note, I have quickly been finding myself becoming obsessed with searching for Christmas presents and/or decorations lately. I blame it on the mention of gift ideas this morning and the abundance of Christmas commercial jingles that are already popping up all over the place and are stuck in my head. Ohh goodness. 😉
Questions for the Afternoon:
What food groups would you say you eat the most foods from?
What food groups do you need to try and eat more foods from?
Does anyone else get a little ahead of the game with certain purchases?
