Hey guys! Happy Saturday
Today’s looking like it’s going to be a good one– I literally have nothing on the agenda other than to get in some form of exercise (preferably in the AM), finish a quick homework assignment, and spend some follow-up quality time with my long-lost boyfriend.
Speaking of long-lost boyfriends, last night Will got off of work a few hours earlier than expected, so he came over and we watched The Stepford Wives on Netflix. I had seen the movie when it first came out, but honestly couldn’t remember a single thing about it, so it was like I was watching for the first time. Ah, the joys of having a short-term movie memory..
Although the movie was cute & entertaining, the BEST part of my evening took place when Will first arrived and finished prepping/eating dinner. Keep in mind that I just introduced him to the Livestrong Myplate program yesterday afternoon, and for the first time in his life he’s actually been made aware of how much he should be eating for his body-type. Allow me to play out the scene:
Will walks in my room with a full belly and lays down.
Will: “Ah, it’s so nice to finally get a chance to relax.”
Pause. Silence. Will gets up in a frantic rush.
Will: “Oh man!! I forgot to log my calories!!!!”
You and me both, Popcorn.
(although I will admit that a little bit of me smiled on the inside )
Same favorite, different twist!
- 1 cup Puffed millet
- 3/4 cup Cinnamon Puffins
- 1/2 cup puffed brown rice
- Sliced banana
- Frozen blueberries
The balls of puffed millet are so teeny tiny and light that they give me all the reason in the world to load ‘em into my breakfasts. Literally, a cupful of these airy babies have 60 calories– Hence, why I end up with overflowing breakfast bowls 8)
Served with a pile of turkey bacon on the side.
Make it a great one!
A bit to think about: Ever seen The Stepford Wives?
