I edited in some pictures into Wednesday's post, so please go check out A) my awesome headband/Olivia Newton-John look; and B) my newfound tire flipping skilz, yo. And also naptime at the gym (lol).
I am not a fan or believer in most 100-calorie packs, but the other day at the grocery store (HEB to my fellow Texans), I discovered the GREATEST 100-CALORIE PACK EVER. Ladies and gentlemen, I present...Wholly Guacamole's 100-calorie packs! Perfect for a turkey/guacamole sandwich, or for topping a turkey burger...really, the possibilities are endless! I love these because it's a decent amount of guacamole (2 oz.) and since you use the entire pack, you don't end up with brown guacamole (or waste part of an avocado). Now this is a 100-calorie snack pack I can get behind!
Oh, and speaking of turkey burgers, I made some the other day using my running buddy, Jenny's, recipe...you throw a package of fresh mushrooms in the food processor along with some celery and a handful of cilantro, then mix everything with two pounds of extra lean ground turkey and add whatever seasonings you like. Mine came out pretty good, despite the fact that I bought flat-leaf parsley and not cilantro, and didn't discover my mistake until I was about to make the burgers. So I just used the parsley...not bad! Next time I will pay more attention at the grocery store and actually buy cilantro, as I love it and I'll bet really makes a good addition. I used a quarter cup measuring cup to make the burgers and froze them...they cook up really quick right from the freezer. I've had a couple for dinner, and topped them with the guacamole - yum. To save on calories, I've eaten them "fork" style - no bun. Pretty tasty!
OK, the belt. To everyone who commented or sent me an email, thank you! I appreciate your ideas, suggestions and of course compliments! I played with the belts a bit more - moved them higher, lower and tried the silver one with a different outfit. Still not sure about the silver one - it may be going back. Oh, I returned a cute white t-shirt (decided it was too big) and bought this berry camisole, so now I have a brighter color to work with. And I'm wearing higher heels as some of you suggested. Let me know if you think any of these are better:
Belt is higher than I would normally wear it, but I think it looks good here - thanks, Kristen, et al, for that suggestion...feels a bit weird but I guess I can get used to it.
Belt at my "pants waist" (thanks for that term, Tina!) - I see what she means...not flattering at all - my belly is really showing.Buttoned boyfriend sweater - I love this look - slightly librarian, but fun. Not digging the shoes - I normally only wear them with pants, and I think I'm right about that.
Silver belt on a boring black dress...I kinda like it. Dress still needs a pop of color - maybe a bright camisole? And of course some jewelry! Bad shoes.
Finally, this is for Kristen - she bought a bunch of, as she puts it, "Kick-Ass Kohl's Dresses" and I loved one so much I went and bought it for myself! This is what I wore to work yesterday - we had one of our biggest receptions of the year and I wanted to look dressed up.
