10 Photos of Foods/Beverages I Don't Enjoy & Why

(none of these photos are mine. I Googled them.)

The idea for this post wasn't actually mine at all. It was my daughter Elena's. She suggested I take last weeks post and just flip it. 


Honestly, I'd like to think of myself as a person that is not picky, but alas I am. This post may not be too hard for me to complete. I'll let ya know if it was. 

1. 

So the first item would have to be tomatoes. At least, tomatoes that are uncooked. I can't stand the squishy & wet texture of a slice of tomato. I can totally dig them roasted, sauce and even thinly sliced and baked on a pizza or focaccia, but I can't handle the taste of a tomato when it is uncooked and fresh off the vine. It's just texturally wrong for me. *shudder*. Just giving a thought to the texture in my mouth gives me the heebie-jeebies.

2. 

Sweet Tea is one of those drinks you either love or hate. Personally I can't stand it. I managed to learn how to make a pretty good Sweet Tea while living in Georgia, but I cannot handle drinking it. It's just gross. I don't get drinking tea cold and sweetened with sugar. I've always associated tea as a comforting drink that I consume while sick with a cold. Sweetened with honey and a little bit of lemon  while I am wrapped in blankets. Cold Tea in a glass with ice on a sunny day? The idea of drinking tea isn't he most "thirst-quenching" thing for me. I know a lot of you Southerners are thinking I'm insane, but I just can't stand Sweet Tea.

3. 

Iceberg Lettuce. 
This stuff frustrates me. I mean, I will eat it on a burger, but I'd rather have arugula or even spinach. If you've never had these greens on a burger before, try it! You'll thank me. Anyway, iceberg lettuce is disappointing. It's just water and doesn't have much going for it. 

4. 

Cucumbers aren't my favorite for some of the same reasons as iceberg. It's just not very tasty to me. I can't get into them. 

5.


Cilantro 
Ugh.... This stuff is nasty. It tastes bad and smells worse. I cannot stand it. That is all.

6.

White Chocolate 
This stuff is gross. It's sugary and has no dimension in its flavor profile. It's too heavy and leaves a funky film in my mouth.

7.

Sparkling Cider
I will never be able to get into this stuff. I know it's a typical go-to for New Year, but. I don't enjoy it. Again, the sweetness factor is a bit much for me. I tend to toast in New Year with water or something else. If I am given a glass of it I have a small sip and just hand it over to my hubby.

8.

Chocolate with fruit flavoring.
Gross. I can't understand why chocolate should be infused with fruity notes. Icky. It's not for me. 

9.

Pickles have never been a friend. I just don't enjoy an overly briny experience on my palate. Add to that the fact that they are Cucumbers and I just can't deal. 

10.
Any hot peppers. Yup. I do not tolerate heat well. Nope. I'm a wimp. Nuff said. 

Well, that's todays post. Wasn't too hard to put together. 

What foods do you dislike?

Welp....See you next Saturday!!

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
