So many of you asked what I planned to do with the dried hibiscus flowers!
Well, I tried to steep one in a cup of hot water. Hibiscus tea, anyone?
It was alright. 🙂 Any other suggestions?
Around 9:30, I became SO hungry. I really don’t like eating a mid-morning snack (I’d prefer to eat my calories in the afternoon), but I gave in and had a snack.
I ate 1/2 of the Eat Natural ‘Yoghurt’ bar that Sam gave me, all the way from England! They need to get these in America!
The star of lunch was Lundberg California Brown Rice. I was really excited to try an organic brown rice!
I paired the rice with baked tofu and steamed broc:
I really enjoyed the brown rice. Rice is one of those items that I can really taste a difference from the no-name vs. high quality brands. It was delish! It was especially good paired with the tofu, which I marinaded in mustard, garlic, EVOO, pepper, and some other random spices.
Cell Phones at the Gym?
I’ve been wanting to talk about this topic FOREVER, but I always forget to bring it up! What do you think about cell phones at the gym?
It seriously makes me want to reach across the treadmill and throttle someone when they are talking on their phone. Here’s why:
- One, I can hear your entire conversation, and trust me, I don’t want to!
- Two, if you can talk on the phone, you are not working out hard enough. Period.
- Three, the gym is my happy place, and your chatter about your sex life, your bills, and your dog is ruining it.
I’m not bothered by friends talking to each other AT the gym, but something about a cell phone user drives me bonkers! The Husband says it doesn’t bother him and that I need to chill out. 🙂
What do you think — are cell phones OK at the gym or not? If you’re OK with cell phone usage at the gym, please enlighten me! 🙂
I agree completely! When I see people talking on their cell phones at the gym, it makes me think..
1. they’re obviously not working hard enough
2. they don’t care about the people around them
i’ve actually seen someone talking on their phone while running on the treadmill and they eventually dropped it… (and secretly i was thinking that they kind of deserved it haha)
but yeah, i agree with you completely, i’m a NAY to cell phones at the gym! have a great thursday!
