Today was another greatly successful day at camp! The rain held off until we were in the bus on the way back to our home base, over a gallon of ice cream was consumed by 6 little girls without spoons, and many a hoop were hula-d. My boss was nice enough to bring me an iced coffee at about 3:45 which, just like all those Dunkin Donuts commercials, really made me feel refreshed and more awake.
During the ice cream eating contest, I noticed that I wasn’t doing something that I normally do. Usually, I have the ice cream scoop in my hand, mindlessly scooping spoonfuls of ice cream into my mouth. Today? One bite. That’s it. ONE BITE. After we cleaned up, I ate my Pure bar (review to come as soon as Adam does it!) and proceeded to play for about 20 minutes. This was a small victory for me… ok, fine, it was huge! Maybe it was the realization that the crappy bulk ice cream wasn’t anything worth wasting calories on, or maybe it was the satisfaction I had from my green monster with Amazing Grass in it this morning, but whatever it was, I hope it happens over and over.
There was awful traffic on my way home, and I noticed that the backs of my legs are sore… not from any sort of exercise but from sitting in my car seat. Ouch. The time in traffic made me really think about what I wanted to make for dinner. I had leftover grilled chicken from Sunday that needed eating, so what did I do?
- Chopped the chicken up into tiny pieces
- Added about 3 Tbsp. roasted red pepper hummus
- Added about 1 Tbsp. barbecue sauce
- Put mixture in a La Tortilla Factory wrap
- Added fat free singles
- Toasted in a pan.
Yup. It was pretty fantastic.
Tomorrow will bring a trip to Green Meadows Farm which is one of my favorite trips of the summer! There’s nothing like seeing little kids play with baby farm animals to make me smile.
Camper quote of the day: Mara! Mara! Look! There was a moskeeter on me and it bited me but I squished it and it exploded and now I have its blood on me! (Shows HUGE blood splatter with mosquito guts on her leg) I’m ok though. Don’t worry.
