Science with Associates
My good friend Janna can be doing The Collect Spherical Chemistry Unit together with her youngsters proper now, so we acquired collectively yesterday for some experimenting. It was such a blast! Hailey acquired to point out off her new favourite pour carbon dioxide on a candle trick, Kaitlyn confirmed off water stress, and Janna had a number of superior experiments set up- making rock sweet, testing pH with purple cabbage, and so many extra. It was such a enjoyable afternoon for youths and adults alike.
On Monday I utilized my Nutrisense CGM (AHS25 for $25 off) and it’s been such an enchanting week watching my blood sugar. Some issues have been proper consistent with my understanding- a veggie and egg breakfast scramble with avocado retains my blood sugars good and regular. And different occasions I really feel so confused- why did my blood sugar spike excessive randomly within the afternoon? Due to this, I’m actually grateful for Mia’s enter and help. All Nutrisense subscriptions include RD help, and I see why; it’s extremely useful.
I’ve realized the order you eat your meals in makes a distinction, however that may differ barely per individual. For me, veggies/fiber first, then protein and fats, then carbs appears to assist maintain issues regular. Additionally, I’ve a Jimmy John sandwich for lunch yesterday and noticed my highest spike of the week.

I had been shopping for natural tampons at Costco, however they weren’t there anymore on my final journey. I noticed it because the nudge I wanted to reorder with LOLA. Lola gives quite a lot of merchandise for ladies’s well being, however I used to be targeted totally on two items- tampons for me and a primary interval equipment. This refer a good friend hyperlink will get you $5 off your order.

Mini Crockpot and Souper Cubes
I used to be impressed by Paige to drag out my mini crockpot and I’m so glad I used to be. I’ve been utilizing it in two methods which have been actually useful for lunches. Method primary: freezing selfmade soup in souper cubes then popping one into the crockpot at breakfast and having heat, selfmade soup prepared and ready at lunch. Method quantity two: Throwing a rooster breast or two in at breakfast with a splash of broth and having a neater protein able to go on a salad, wrap, or bowl at lunch time. Such a helpful little equipment!
Okay, that is self-indulgent, however as a result of David and the youngsters are sick of me wavering backwards and forwards and speaking by the professionals and cons then not making a choice… please assist me. My hair is getting fairly lengthy. Some days I adore it and different days I need to chop it to shoulder size for ease. My hair is thick and wavy so it wants a bit size to assist weigh it down, nevertheless it’s lots to cope with so some days it appears like an excessive amount of to try to model at its present size.
I’ve by no means felt my hair is a safety blanket, however now it seems like one. I additionally understand how lengthy it takes me to develop my hair out, in order that makes me hesitate, too. I do know it’s simply hair and it’s not a giant deal, however I’d love your two cents… chop it? Trim it? Let it keep lengthy? I don’t know what to do!
