Hi all. It’s been a hectic couple days. Not that I’m complaining though. I love being busy.
Saturday was spent decorating for our church connect dinner on Sunday evening. This year’s theme was a night in Paris. I wish I would have taken pics but didn’t get a chance. I did snap a little pic of a trellis and the candle holders I was working on at home though.
Sunday was a first for me; I attended a day long live Tedx all women’s event. It was fantastic. It started at 9:00 am (groan).
Lunch was served but left me so hungry I could have eaten the box afterwards. Oh sure everything was organic and vegetarian and compostable and it came with a unicorn that farted sprinkles and rainbows but cheese and rice, people. Would it kill you to add a little protein in there?
Tuesday night I went to a function that was sponsored by my investment firm. The food was fantastic; a mix of both Arabic and Italian dishes.
There was games and conversation and it was generally really nice evening . But as usually happens when I’m sitting at a table where alcohol and food is abundant, I tend to look around and remind myself of how much I have to be grateful for. I wonder how many of us realize that.
How many people go to bed at night hungry how many little kids don’t have breakfast how many kids don’t have lunch at school? It’s a sobering thought.
So despite my best intentions, copious amounts of food have been consumed over the past week. I was glad to eat at home today, and to eat clean and control my own portions.
I have been craving strawberries and yogurt lately. Isn’t that weird? This was my day of clean eating. Feels good to be back to a “normal” eating routine.
Have a great evening, all!
