What is up with eating when I have to get work done?

I did get to work on my Haudenosaunee research. It’s going to be a long, long process, seeing as it’s going to be roughly 20 to 25 pages (longest paper to date!) but that’s not really what’s frustrating me. It’s the fact that it’s too natural for me to have a snack to eat as I do research. For instance, tonight I munched on M&Ms and then my mind kept wandering until an hour later, I had some of my grandmother’s nasal passage-clearing pickles. Granted, the pickles are to die for, so I don’t blame for taste buds– but still! I shouldn’t need a snack to keep my creative thoughts a-flowin’ when I’m getting work done. Anybody else have this issue?

Snapshots from today…

Whole Wheat Wrap with Ham, Spinach, Plum Tomato, and Pineapple Salsa

Yum, Yum, Yum.


My new obsession:

Newman's Own Pineapple Salsa


By the time lunch rolled around, I totally forgot I put pineapple salsa in the wrap. It was kind of like a little surprise! 😉

For dinner, I tried to actually cook a “real” meal.

Veggie Stir Fry with slice of sourdough bread


I felt so creative adding sprinkles of ginger and stir fry sauce into the pan. What can I say? I’m new at this whole cooking legit meals thing. I’ll get the hang of it! 🙂

I decided to brush my teeth about a half hour ago in hopes of ending my snacky behavior. Hopefully that minty feeling will keep me away from the fridge and cupboard. Now it’s on to American Idol (I watch it for my daily Ellen Degeneres humor) and maybe a little The Biggest Loser. Good night!
