I’m definitely influenced to an extent by things I read on other people’s blogs. There are definite trends that go around the blogosphere (Green Monsters and Banana Soft Serve for example). I figure that if everyone raves about certain recipes, they must be on to something. And so I test the waters. Maybe I like it, maybe I don’t, but I definitely try these food “trends.”
I swear, I have a point to this. For a while now, I’ve been seeing a lot of juice. At first I didn’t really think much of it, but then I saw Crazy Sexy Cancer and became very interested in green juices. I’d been coveting this juicer for a while and Jason bought it for me last week! It delivers tomorrow. In anticipation, I went to Costco after work and bought mass quantities of produce. I got a little carried away. Although the broccoli isn’t intended to be juiced.
I hope I like this. I guess the principle behind juicing is, especially with leafy greens, that since you aren’t getting the fiber from, say, spinach, you are able to eat/drink more of it and get more of the nutrients. Or somethin’ like that.
So, in addition to all of the push ups that I did last night (which btw, I did in increments of 20), today’s boot camp was very pushup-centric! By the end of the class, my pushup turned into me flopping onto my stomach and trying to myself back up. My chest/arms/shoulders are going to be sore tomorrow. We’d done this particular workout before; I have no idea why today was so hard. Actually, what am I talking about? It was hard because of the pushups that I did last night.
I’m not really talking about the details here, but my emotions about the wedding are all over the place. Not about actually getting married, but wedding planning. My parents are divorced, my dad is remarried and it’s just hard to get through this without everyone clashing, myself included. I’m not able to do some of it because I’m out of state. It’s just exhausting sometimes.
