Hello, hello! How’s your Monday going so far?
I just got back from running a bunch of errands. I’m doing a big photo shoot for the recipes that I developed for the Almond Board of California on Wednesday, so I went out to buy some last-minute props and supplies. Tomorrow, I’m shopping for groceries and then cooking a few of the recipes ahead of time. Basically, Wednesday is going to be nuts (pun intended)! I’ve put some much work into these recipes and photo shoot, I just want everything to go well, ya know? I always put so much pressure on myself for these types of things, but I feel like I am really organized with this project (I’ve made so many lists and timelines), so I hope everything goes well!
FYI: My photos and recipes will be on CNC in the coming weeks. They’re slimmed-down, comfort foods using almonds and various almond ingredients. I can’t wait to share them with you guys!!
Ok, let’s get to some of my eats for the day!
Decaf almond milk latte
Dried white nectarines
Annie’s mac & cheese with steamed spinach and roasted Brussels sprouts
PiÃ±a colada coconut milk yogurt with a side of pug creeper
I saw this little tidbit in Health (January/February 2014) the other day and thought it was really interesting:
Exercise with up-and-down motions makes you less hungry? Say what?!
I read this little article early last week, so I took note of how I felt after my CrossFit workouts (jumping verses not jumping). Overall, I can’t really say that I noticed a big difference in my hunger, but there was one particular box jump workout where I didn’t get hungry for awhile afterward. Perhaps related?
Questions of the Day
How do you deal with big projects?
Are you someone who puts a lot of pressure on yourself?
Have you ever noticed that up-and-down workouts make you less hungry?
