This is what I am doing tonight: drinking tea. Looks like my cold has hit me once again – damnit. It’s my throat that’s bothering me this time… cough… cough…. cough. AND I was supposed to go to my friends, Sam, house for a card party and I totally forgot! =( But I don’t think she would want my sick butt around her or her guests.
While grocery shopping I picked up this variety pack of teas:
And I quickly choose the Throat Coat – it’s really good! Sweet with licorice!
I really suck at drinking water during the winter months so I am hoping my tea stash will start helping me drink more fluids, besides coffee.
And speaking of coffee, I tried a packet of Starbucks Via this morning.
I wasn’t in the mood to really need a full cup or to dirty the coffee pot so I tried a packet. It was pretty simple to make: pour grounds in a cup, add HOT water, stir and let sit for a minute. (I’m not sure if this is part of the actual directions but it helped with the taste and body)
The verdict? Meh. It had that “sour” taste that I hate in coffee. I can see this being good for a Coffee Crisis (!!) but not everyday.
I also had some sprouted toast with PB and some blueberry Oikos.
The J and I cleaned up in the kitchen – he LOVES to help!
Even though I wasn’t feeling well I decided to hit the gym anyway. Just some light running and hill walking. It felt great even though I REALLY did not want to go.
I refueled with a Green Brown Monster.
- almond milk
- frozen peaches and berries
- flax meal
- Chocolate Amazing Meal
- 3 clementines
Sweet but good! I haven’t had Amazing Meal in a while because I really am not find of the chocolate flavor. But I felt I needed the extra nutrients.
And here is J’s HUGE pile of toys! Poor kid, I think he’s neglected! 😉
A few hours later I had lunch 2 – just a fun plate of goodness!
A carrot, celery, Mary’s crackers, olives, mozz cheese and the rest of my hummus. Just an FYI about me: I declare olives their own food group. I LOVE OLIVES! Black or green – I could just pop them al day long! I think it has to do with putting them on my fingers when I was a kid! 😉
I still have no idea what I am going to have for dinner – I’m not that hungry but since it’s 8:30 I better think of something. I recieved a few emails about our vase that is on our mantle so I thought I would show it off some more!
We found it at Costco this summer right after we bought our home. They ad a traveling showcase and we were lucky to go to the Costco that had the stand! It instantly reminded me of the Ocean! The original owners of our home had a blown piece of glass and it was so elegant! We knew we had to copy and find one of our own.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a great night! I just watched Shrek the Halls – LOVED IT!
