What do you do when your significant other is busy writing papers?
You write about the things you’ve eaten while listening to a mix of Ben Harper and Christmas songs on Pandora.
Let’s get started, shall we?
How about a quick Movember update? So I officially have 25 Stachetastic Run Sponsors!!! THAT’S FREAKIN’ AWESOME! So at this point, I’m raising $2.50 for every mile I run in Movember! I’m not mathmagician, but that means I’ve raised $60 so far on this one component of my fundraising! It feels so awesome to contribute to the research of men’s health research! STACHETASTIC! (Psst…if you want in on this awesomeness, comment below or on my FB page!)
Alright, back to food and stuff. For breakfast, I just had a Jimmy Dean Breakfast sandwich. I’m not gonna lie, a part of the reason why I stopped writing food posts was because I was a little embarassed about how I eat pretty much the same thing every day for breakfast and lunch. As a blogger, it didn’t seem like good writing. But this blog isn’t going to always be foodporntastic like this photo from Sunday night (this photo is NSFES…Not Safe For Empty Stomachs). My weekly structure has been my bread and butter in the past. I need that so I don’t just eat out all the time. So bear with my as I try to make Jimmy Dean and his breakfast sandwiches sound interesting. (However, Jimmy Dean did sing an interesting ballad called “Big John” that I has always loved. Enjoy.) 5 points.
That time I ate with magnets: So I am a part of the Communicators’ Network at FSU, which is basically a group for every PR/marketing professional within the university. This week, we went on a field trip to the National High Magnetic Field Lab which is a part of the campus at Florida State. They gave us an awesome tour of where some of the world’s strongest magnets are created and used. In lieu of a food photo is a photo of the world’s strongest magnet: the 45 Tesla Hybrid Magnet System! Scientist and other nerds come from around the world to test materials by putting them inside a space of the magnet. What do they test? I’m not really sure, but our tour guide mentioned something about testing the material graphene inside of one of the magnets which is this super awesome material that will change technology in the future (you heard it here first people! From a food blog…from a kid who did pretty horribly in his science classes…) Anyway, the magnet is about three and a half stories high, but only has about an inch and a half of testing space. So that gives you an idea of how intense the magnet’s strength is. The Mag Lab in Tallahassee also has one of the coldest spots on earth…which is created by superconductors and liquid nitrogen and helium. As our awesome tour guide was explaining all of this, the only thing I could think of was Jesse Pinkman… So I said all of that to say this: Florida State University has more than just the best football team in the country, it is a world-class research institution. Basically, we are just awesome. Not much more needs to be said about that. Oh yeah, they also provided a fajita bar for lunch so I ate about 15 points at lunch.
Sorry for nerding out on you there. If you want to read more about my lifelong-love for the best university in the nation, click here and see how it all began.
COFFEE! It was a frigid 68 degrees today (what can I say? Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg) so I had myself a skinny caramel macchiato while working outside. (Landis Green is an awesome place to brainstorm.) A venti skinny is only 5 points!
Dinner: After work, we decided to grab some dinner since Megan was going to be locked up working all night. We stopped at Po’Boys and I had gator po’ boy (yes…a po’ boy sandwich with alligator) and fries. It was about 27 points.
Snack: Megan and I found this nifty trick that you can make popcorn in the microwave in a paper bag. We had an air popper which worked for a while, but then was possessed by Ann Coulter and now shoots the kernels everywhere like missiles. This is a much safer (and delicious) way of eating popcorn! Check it out how here! 3 points
So today was random, but good! I got to 55 points which is over, but not by much. I have plenty of flex points and activity points. Hooray for tracking! See ya tomorrow.
