The Jewelry Party went really well! I always feel really happy and empowered when I get together with a group of women. Through my job, I get the opportunity to work with Akron’s Knowledgeable Network of Women, but outside of work I don’t have a ton of women-only time these days. While the Jewelry party was fun, I wish there was something I could do to get a group of women together without the enticement of having to buy a product.
Here’s some pics of the grub:
Separately, it may sound odd but I felt kinda guilty for getting free jewelry based on my friends’ purchases. Yes it offset the cost of the food and drinks, but that’s the sort of thing I like doing for friends without expecting anything in return. Maybe I’m just weird — but regardless I don’t think I’ll have any sort of jewelry/tupperware/purse/candle etc parties in the future, but I’ll definitely have to think of another type of get together for my lady friends.
I was so exhausted from the party that I didn’t spend a ton of time on my meals today. At least I’m going to get to try out a new recipe for dinner tonight 😀
B1 – After my success with the Luna Bar earlier this week, I was pumped to try a new breakfast bar so I decided to go with the Dixie Diner Carb Counters Soy Rocks plus Flax Bars in Crunchy Chocolate….
I took approximately 1.5 bites before tossing the rest in the trash! I felt like I was eating a chocolate scented tire.
🙁 Two thumbs down Dixie Diner… Two thumbs down.
B2 = Oats and fruits!
L: I decided to use up some of the party leftovers and make a lavash sandwich with the new lavash bread I ordered from netrition– a lavawich if you will 😉 . You may be asking, what the heck is lavash? Well my friends, It’s basically a really thin flat bread. I loaded it up with some turkey/ham, and a ton of sprouts, tomatoes, onions, and half a laughing cow french onion wedge.
Check out the height on this sucker:
The bread doesn’t have much taste to it (which is actually good–most low carb products have a funky after taste). I think what I like most about this bread is the sheer size of it. My sandwich was on half of the lavash–but I think I’ll try making a monster flat bread pizza with it this weekend.
Stats on the Lavash: 1/2 of one lavash has 50 calories, 7g carbs, 3g dietary fiber, 5g protein
Man… can’t wait for the weekend to get here! Goal this weekend is to not spend any money — which is good because I could really use a low-key R&R couple of days!
Dinner plan this evening is to try out the stuffed peppers I posted earlier in the week and make some roasted broccoli. I’m really getting sick of frozen steamed veggies, that is for darn sure!
