Hey chicas! Hope you all are doing swell! Its almost time for the weekend pour vous but two more days of au pair slavery until I am free to go to VERONA on sunday with my two favey au pairs on this side of the atlantic!
The weather here has done a complete 180 since last week. It is COLD! I’m talking 3 degrees celsius (37 degrees farenheit). Last week it was a warm but muggy 20C/68F, I way prefer that weather. Right now I am wearing two pairs of socks, jeans, a tank top, knit sweater, a knit cardi and scarf AND I am still cold. My low blood pressure may affect my heating issues but apparently here in italy they don’t turn on the thermostat until november! Which means I will be partially frozen by then and returning home missing a few limbs. Who needs ten fingers anyways?!
I headed out for my run this morning and almost ran all the way back inside my ice castle because it was WAY cold. I need to buy some cheap dollar store gloves because my filangees can’t handle the cold. My runs have been getting a bit better this week but now my body has to adjust to running in the cold again. When I played soccer my knee used to act up when the weather got colder and its starting to do that again here. Hopefully nothing bad comes of it and I can keep going out for my a.m. runs.
Now onto my yogurt creations… these aren’t as good as the ones at home because I have limited resources here in Italia but my tums was quite content with these suckers.
My first fage creation! I added some of the euro Nestle fitness cereal for some crunchage and some cinnamon. This mix taste like the cinnamon toast crunch cereal. Which is a total success in my book! I’m loving all the protein that is in fage! I’m guilty of not getting enough protein into my diet so fage will defs help resolve this issue.
Next up…This mix had Pineapple Vitasnella (which is Silhouette yog back in North America), Nestle fitness cereal, grapes and cinnamon with some fage hidden underneath. Me loved this flavour of vitasnella minus the aritifical ingredients but it was GOOOOD.
I’ve found a very simple solution to my carb addiction problem here. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner.. Pre cut my veggies, DUH! Totally came in handy the other night when I had a headache and went up to bed. I just brought my little yellow container of veggies along with me and called it a night.
There were more veggie in here, I swear! This picture was taken after I demolished 2/3 of the container. Now I am enjoying an episode of Una mamma per amica (Gilmore Girls) in english of course before I have to go collect some fire wood and start up lunch of the kids and their father. Thanks for all the kinds words on my running issues & my nursing program failure but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the other schools I have applied to for nursing.
By the way, please check out Homegirl’s bomba$s weekend in NYC – you will die!
