Two More Tubs

I bought two more tubs of that protein powder. I likes it. :D I like the taste and the 24 grams of protein per serving keeps my tummy very happy for hours and hours. Today, I had a smoothie about ten this morning and wasn't hungry or thinking about lunch until well after three. I had a light grilled cheese and some Popchips for late lunch and I am already ravenous, again.

Hmmm... No brainer, there, Protein smoothie, good. Grilled cheese, tastes good but doesn't really get the job done. I ended up finishing the bag of Popchips. *sigh* 240 frakking calories I wasn't planning on taking in. I may just do a protein smoothie for dinner, tonight.

I sent William out after a battery for my scale. Time to face the music. *hold me!*

It is sunny today but not as warm as I had thought it was going to get. The wind has a little chill to it. Oh well. It's still better than snow and ice. Anything is better than that! lol

I am doing so much better drinking my water. I am getting in about three quarts, again between water and Crystal Light. I feel better for it, lemme tell you. I had really slacked off in the water department. I am not pushing for more than three quarts of fluid a day. I just can't do more and honestly, I don't think that it is necessary. Five, six quarts of water a day is a full time job and dammit! I have enough other shit to do and I hate living in the bathroom. If, when it starts to warm up, I consider increasing my intake a bit to keep myself hydrated as it heats up but I am not going to force myself to gulp so much water that I want to gag, just thinking about it.

I have started wearing my hair parted on the side. I am under the delusion that it makes me look younger. lol

Oh! What do you think of my new layout? I am kind of over the cutsie backgrounds and headers. (nothing wrong with them, I am just tired of them on my blogs.) So, I put up a simple stretch and made a matching header so that everything is nearly seamless and bright. I made my page wider and stretched my columns a bit, too. I think it makes my formerly closed in, cluttered blog page look better. :D

  2. I like the new layout!

    I wear my hair off to the side. I've always wanted to try parted in the middle but I always end up going back to the side.

    Enjoy your weekend!

      Hair will do it's thing, no matter how hard we try to control it, mine, especially. It is demonic. lol

      I hope that you had a great weekend.

    1. You are too kind. :)

      I also love protein. My bod craves it. The more I get, the happier I am.

  5. LOVE the new look of the blog. I used to wear my hair to the side, but my "natural part" was always down the middle, so that is how my hair is now. I super long hair, so it's hard to maintain sometimes. I noticed you have long hair as well. Any styles you prefer over the other? I am usually a wash and go girl!

    1. Thank you. I like the cleaner, brighter look. :D

      I am varying side and middle. Side when it is down, middle when it is up.

      My hair is just about waist length, straight right now. I personally am shooting for classic length. I had that length, once before and I loved it. My hair actually felt long to me and I could do many things with it. :D I wear my hair up and in braids, most of the time. My hair is heavy and too hot to wear down. Besides, I like updos. :D Wearing it up is also protective; guards against damage and that is important to anyone seriously growing their hair.

      Have you been to the Long Hair Community? It is a message board dedicated to growing and maintaining long, beautiful hair and supporting everyone who is growing in their journey. Please come join us, if you haven't checked it out, yet. We are a pretty friendly bunch. :D

  8. The new layout loads so much better on my computer. I like it! I bought my first container of protein powder last week too. I hate it. I ended up ordering a big container of spiru lean vanilla powder... at least I think that's what it is called. I tested a couple of single serving packages from the health food store and liked it, but it was much more expensive than the one I bought first. Sigh. I should know better.

    I know I don't post here usually, but I do follow you.
