Hi bloggies! I am SO happy right now!! I can’t even begin to tell you how stressed out I was this morning. I’m leaving for NY tomorrow straight after work and the next day I’m going to Israel. I had so much work to do before that, I swore I could stay up all night and probably would still be unable to finish all of it. I felt so helpless and overwhelmed… I didn’t want to disappoint anyone. My boss I believe thinks pretty highly of me, and I just couldn’t handle either not meeting my deadline or handing something in that was sub-par. So I got to work bright and early and started cracking down on the work. Unfortunately the more I read, the more anxious I got. So you know what I did? I asked my boss if there was any chance I could hand my assignment in after I get back from my trip. It made total sense. There was actually no reason to rush it, except checking the box, and I didn’t want the quality to suffer. And she was ok with it! I think I felt every muscle of my body relax that very moment. It was a huge weight that was lifted off my shoulders (even though of course I’ll still have to do the work next month). Anyway, this just goes to show you that sometimes all you have to do is ask. Things may work out in your favor
Here are my eats from the last 2 days. You’re missing another piece of cheesecake, the rest of the chocolate covered brownie from the bottom of this post, and dinner from last night (to be covered in a separate post)
Banana oats with coconut, almonds and chocolate chips:
I love how the chocolate chips just melt all over the warm oats. Coconut + banana, however, is a little weird
Oikos + fruit salad:
Leftover salmon + edamame from dinner at KO Prime:
Amazing Grass chocolate whole food energy bar:
I received this bar in the HLS swag bag as well, and I think this is the item I was the most excited to try. I knew it would be a little weird but something told me I would also love it. The verdict? Nope. This guy is not for me! I thought the chocolate coating was waxy, and the filling was fake tasting. The cocoa nibs stood out the most. I think this is what “healthy food” stereotypically tastes like, and that’s why I started this blog – to show people that healthy food does not have to be bland or weird, and can be exciting.
Something that’s healthy and I DO love: 1 Food for Life english muffin + 2 packets of Barney Butter and a large banana. Delicious and filling
And of course my obsession: 1 chocolate chip Paradise Bakery cookie + tea:
I hope to be able to blog from Israel but I don’t know what the internet situation is like there. We are staying with my grandmothers who supposedly have internet, but we’ll see if it’s workable. I may also finally try to figure out Ecto to make it all happen. Do you use Ecto? If you do, how do you bulk resize your pictures? I can’t figure it out for the life of me!
Next time you hear from me, I may be overseeas
