More carbs :D

Image
It feels like I write this every other post but really, my diet has been all over the place again. I failed to meal prep last week and I ate a ton of candy. I've been logging most of my food in My Fitness Pal but I end up stopping halfway through the day  because I know that it's going to be over.

Monster cookie bars

I'm on a baking kick apparently. I told my slo-pitch team that I would bring cookies for our game on Tuesday so I made the survival cookies I just posted but they're too good to give away. So I found this recipe and I had to make it. As stated in the other post most times I cut the sugar in half in recipes. This is one of those recipes.

Survival cookies - a healthier cookie

Image
I made cookies the other night thinking they were going to be for my slo-pitch team but I gave some to my parents and the rest have found a home in my freezer where I've been eating 2-3 a day.

My new lunch bag

Image
I bought a new lunch bag last week. I have a few but they stink from stuff leaking and one of them turns stuff onto the side which is likely what's causing the leaking. My friend and I stopped in at Walmart and Superstore before heading home from camping on the search for umbrellas. I lost my good one a few weeks ago and she has a wedding to go to today and rain is in the forecast.

Two weeks of vacation!

Image
If you haven't noticed, I love summer. I love the heat, and HOT days. Tomorrow marks the end of my first week of vacation but I also have next week off. I started the weekend with a friend who came to visit. We went for dinner and played tourist, it was a lot of fun.

Spicy (not hot) chicken stir fry

Image
I got home from camping today and wow did I eat... and drink, a lot of calories since Sunday. I got some biking and hiking in but with the snacking, staying up late, and drinking I was still at a caloric surplus. Needless to say I'm not feeling very great. So I bought some frozen veggies while looking for an umbrella (it's been raining her the last 2 days).
I called it spicy stir fry because it doesn't use the 'traditional' sauces, spices, or herbs that most stir fries use. This one has cumin, paprika, and chili powder.
