Tidbit Tuesday

I have nothing but some random thoughts so I'm thinking bullets...

  • Dyed my hair last night.  So last year, I went pink for my 3 Day walk.  Well, in order to go pink, we had to bleach my hair so now when the brown dye fades, it turns an annoying yellowish type color.  So I usually just dye brown over it.  I also found my first gray hair the other day.  I tried to find it again but I couldn't but I know it was there so it was time to dye it.  My goal is to never know when I go gray.  Here's a pic, snapped bright and early with my phone at my desk at work.  This is my "It's not even 6 a.m. and I'm already locked in my cube" look.
  • Product Review:  Patak's cooking sauce, Butter Chicken.  Fantabulous!  Just sautee some chicken or veg, pour sauce over and let simmer for 15 minutes.  You can serve it over rice but we just had it with veggies and raspberries (for the girls - I like giving them fruit along with veggies).  My oldest had 3 helpings!  Nutritional information isn't too bad...a little more carbs than we'd prefer but not bad.  I will definitely be trying some of the other flavors they have.  The nutritional info here is for about 1/4 of the jar but you don't end up eating nearly that much of it.  
    • 181 cals, Sugar 6.5 g, Fat 15 g, Protein 1.2 g
  • Hubby lost 4 lbs this week!  He's a little disappointed as he's been doing really well with the low-carb primal eating but I think it's great.  He's worried that he's not posting huge numbers his first week going primal but I told him 4 lbs is a great number and he should be happy with it.  He's also not at optimal restriction yet.  Very proud of how he's doing.
  • Hubby's looking to start his own law practice the first of the year.  He's really nervous which makes me really nervous but I think it's the best thing we can do.  If he can just make what he makes now (because while it's tough, we survive) but be his own boss...I think he'd be exponentially happier.  And Happy Hubby = Happy Panda.
  • Did well with primal eating yesterday.  Even the butter chicken sauce is all natural so it's all good.  I did have an apple with Nutella last night so I didn't hit 100% but I'm OK with that.  
OK.  So I think that about covers it.  Hope everyone's week is getting off to a good start!

Nutella is the DEVIL! I can't even walk by it in the grocery store, it wants to jump in my buggy and then in my mouth!

Love the hair color. I have never tried Nutella. From Tessies comment I think I will stay away. I have enough vices.

Good job on the primal eating. Tell hubby congrats on his loss.

I think it will be awesome for him to go out on his own. He will rock.

If it makes you feel any better, I found my first grey hair (which we shall call strands of wisdom) when I was about 24!!! Its crazy. I am only 32 and if I dont color my hair every 8 weeks, its real real bad.

I agree with theresa nutella is the devil. I could eat a whole big jar by myself!

Ronnie said...

I love Nuetella, hubby makes it in the mornings with butter and toast. Thank goodness, I am only at home on the weekends when he gets up!

I like your hair, looks great! Mmmmm Nutella! Thanks - now I'm craving apples and Nutella!

Have a great one!

Nutella is pure EVIL! If it was you're worst thing of the day I'd say you did pretty darn good. :)

I like the color, very flattering.

Andrea said...

Yes, love the hair color!

Nora said...

Nutella is a big no no for me. I could just sit there with a spoon and be super happy. Great hair!

I've never tried Nutalla with apples, although I did fall off the wagon with apple slices laced with peanut butter today... oops.
