I’m still thinking about that delicious muffin I had for breakfast! If only Great Harvest were open tomorrow – I would totally be there. I will have to settle for Starbucks Monday instead.
I did enjoy my citrus-y/cucumber-y water today. Plus, I had fun using one of our wedding gifts.
I had a big project to do this afternoon, so I got some brain fuel ready – Cheerful Cherry Energy Bites and a Yerba Mate Latte (yerba mate tea with milk and organic cane sugar).
As for my “project” today. It made me want to PULL MY HAIR OUT! I was working on adding drop down lists to my menu for The Chic Life blog today. Even though I studied programming in college, it doesn’t mean it’s easy. Not to mention, programming is significantly more difficult when you don’t work with the code every day and there’s a reason why I’m not a programmer/developer by profession.
I spent HOURS and HOURS today trying to figure out how to do drop down lists on my own. I probably read 30 tutorials and used bits and pieces from a few different ones to piece together a solution.
Anywho, fiiiiiinally, after many frustrating hours, I figured it out. Sort of. I mean, the drop down list menu is far from perfect, but it works. At least…it works on my browser…not sure how it will function with older versions (upgrade people! please? ).
You can test it out by hovering over my “Fitness” link in the top menu. It’s the only one with a sub-menu.
Thanks to my project taking longer than I expected, I skipped Prep Day Sunday. I was pretty bummed, too, because hubby picked out a tasty looking Clean Food soup recipe. Perhaps I’ll make it this week or next Sunday?
Additionally, a home-cooked meal was not on the agenda. Hubby picked up Chinese take-out.
Half a small egg drop soup plus a couple pieces of crunchies.
3 Veggie pot stickers with dipping sauce.
Plus some veggie lo mein.
Everything was tasty, but a bit on the heavy side – especially that lo mein!
So, I talked the other day about snacking BEFORE a heavy dinner, but you can also snack AFTER a healthy dinner to have a healthier indulgence.
Healthy Eating Tip: Next time you’re having a heavy dinner, if you don’t want to fill up on the heavy foods, save some room for a healthy post-dinner snack.
I decided on some Stonyfield Oikos in Vanilla and some Earthfare Whole Grain Berry Granola.
My yogurt parfait was like a healthy snack AND dessert! Score!
Project Hydrate Day #7
Only Day #7 and I’m starting to lose count of which day of Project Hydrate I’m on! Anywho, so one week down and I’m feeling pretty good. I think the key to my hydration is the fact that I’m paying more attention to it. That and that I’m more prepared – I have more water/liquids on hand in order to hydrate myself AND I’m working harder on actually drinking more. The combination is really working for me.
- 5 cups of citrus water
- 1 cup of yerba mate tea
Ok, still not reaching my goal, but better than a typically Sunday. With these things, I measure success in improvements, not in reaching my goal day #1.
How are you measuring the success of your hydration goal?
Who’s ready for Monday? I think I need another Sunday still!
