Good afternoon! WHAT A MORNING! I’m busy at work, trying to catch up on election news, and just generally feeling GREAT. I can’t WAIT to go on a run later!
Around 9:30, I had a snack. I signed up to get a free Clif Bar sample about 8 weeks ago, and I finally got this little baby in the mail.
A 100-calorie sample of crunchy peanut butter, one of my fav Clif Bar flavors (dude, look how terribly scratched up my cell is?!).
I also had a plum in my favorite dish. 🙂
Meghann forgot to take home her Dad’s homemade leftover pork last night, so I ate it for lunch (thanks, Meghann!). It was REALLY good. I smothered it in a little bit of Anne’s Organic BBQ sauce.
On the side, I had roasted Brussel Sprouts, drizzled with some maple syrup prior to baking. Vegetables are BEAUTIFUL!
And 1/2 a sweet potato, cut into "fries" and roasted.
It was a VERY nutritious and delicious lunch. Food like this makes me feel GREAT!
And for my first mid-afternoon snack (eaten around 1 PM), I had Grape Nuts + yogurt.
Breaking Out Like a 13 Year Old Boy
My skin is going CRAZY. I normally only get a few zits a month, but right now my forehead looks like a minefield. I think it’s a combination of wedding-, work-, and election-related stress. Normally, Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 (with 10% benzoyl peroxide) squashes my zits immediately, but it’s NOT WORKING.
I was also wondering if my new headbands (Goody Stay Put) contain latex because I’m allergic, and it’s the only other new thing in my routine that may be causing the zits. I looked online, but I could find no mention of the product containing latex, so I don’t think it’s that.
Does anyone have any natural acne relief methods I could try? I don’t want to put more product on my face!
