Neosporin in My Nose

I promise we’ll get to the title of this post, but first let’s talk about some food and fitness :)


I was running late this morning and still felt pretty stuffed from all the food I ate over the weekend so I grabbed the most random breakfast of all time.

Carrots and Sabra Hummus

Carrots and hummus!  It required no effort and made me happy.  I felt a little funky crunching away at carrots and hummus at my desk first thing in the morning, but my co-workers didn’t seem to mind.  For lunch I had a bowl of chickpea salad (chickpeas, red onion, lemon juice, goat cheese, arugula, spices to taste).

The red onion was crazy strong and kind of took over the whole salad but I still enjoyed it and am looking forward to having it for the rest of the week.  Yay for meal prep!  Oh, and with my chickpea salad I had two Ryvita Rye & Oat Crackers.  For my afternoon snack I had a S’mores Luna Bar which was a new flavor to me and super delicious.

And for dinner Josh made us pork (which we bought in a mustard marinade ahead of time) along with roasted veggies and quinoa salad.

I left work around 6:40pm and after it raining all day I was in no mood to work out.  I did, however, pack another box of kitchen stuff so I feel good about that ;) .


Not to be gross…but this morning I woke up and the inside of my nose just felt weird and dry and blech.  I didn’t feel sick but I wasn’t comfortable either.  (I won’t go into more detail than necessary here.)  Josh informed me the best thing to do was to put neosporin on a q-tip and then proceed to put it in my nose.  It worked…but it’s just weird!  This was definitely never an issue in the south.

Question of the Day
