I'M NOT DEAD!
I just feel like I've been run over by a very. large. truck! Not really, life is just so crazy, wonderfully busy lately! I've been teaching, cleaning, shuttling, typing, reading, learning, grading, sneezing, birthday-celebrating, organizing--and that's the abbreviated list! My daughter just had her 11th birthday--where has the time gone?? I am enjoying watching both of my kids grow up, and all the ups and downs (but especially the ups!) that accompany these times. We got to spend some time in Calabasas, CA with my phenomenal sister and her family. I always return inspired to take better care of myself--she's in incredible shape and always puts good nutrition as a top priority. One of my favorite Michelle-isms is from awhile back. She was talking about the importance of the right combination of food in a meal;I think this is how it went.
Me: What combo./ratio of protein to fat to carbs are good together?
Michelle: Well, for instance, if you are going to have carbs, you should always have protein with them. You would never want to eat fat and carbs together--that's a bad combination.
Me: Oh really? You mean like a SNICKERS BAR? Yeah, that would be wrong. I'd never want to do that.
I guess that's why she looks like she does, and I look like I do! Damn you, Snickers.
