Today I spend a lot of my morning figuring out my travel plans for this week. I am going to Mississippi tomorrow to cover a story about a church that is building a home for a family who lost everything in Katrina. Sounds like a great story, doesn’t it?! I am leaving tomorrow morning (early) and will be back by Thursday afternoon. I plan to continue blogging in MS, just need to find internet!
I am actually going to be staying with the volunteers in a camp set up for people that come to the area to help. I Google mapped the place and it doesn’t look runner friendly, so I may have to hold off on running until I get back. We’ll play that by ear. Also, my food option are going to be limited as I will be eating breakfast and dinner with the group.
My mid-morning snack was 1/2 or so of this HUGE Honey crisp apple. They were at TJ’s this weekend for $1.29 each. I generously gave the rest to Ben (last time I bought honey crisp I kept them for myself).
I threw together lunch super quick this morning since Ben had to be out the door. I went with a big salad and a PB&J. I used m new white bean dip from Costco and some cottage cheese for the dressing. I usually use Sabra hummus for dressing, but decided to try something new this week. That was a bad decision. This white bean dip does not even compare 🙁 Plus it’s a little bland and watery.
I’ve got some loose ends to tie up before going home to get things ready for the trip.
I found this website by Evelyn Tribole (one of the authors of Intuitive Eating) today. I absolutely love the book and her work in general! If you are interested in her philosophy and approaches check it out!
