Tuesday Tidbits

The packing continues... yesterday food and staples from the salon lockers... always good to get to the bottom of the lockers to see what is actually there!  I do try to keep an accurate inventory, but things get missed.

And today, I packed up the head (that's the powder room/bathroom) lockers... cosmetics, and what I refer to as 'drugstore stuff'... and then a few dishes from the galley I like to have along... also some clothing - running gear for sure!  And tomorrow morning, a bit more clothing and the contents of the refrigerator as we head to shore.

I have managed to get in a couple of walks and tonight I will do a strength workout while I watch the finale of the Biggest Loser.

Yesterday I made us each a smoothie in the afternoon with my newest addiction.... Coconut Dream!

Last week I did a post on my food blog about using it to make our morning oats, and the lovely Christy left me a comment saying that she likes it in smoothies.  All righty then.

I mixed half a cup of this luscious creamy coconut milk with a whole small banana, and the result was fantastic.  Thanks, Christy!  I owe ya one!

Sadly,  I used the last of the carton in our oats again this morning, along with some raisins, and then a blob of chunky natural pb on the top! Mmmmmm.

Today, Marcia posted a giveaway from Planet Gear that she has going on until December 17th, and also mentioned a great promo that Planet Gear has going on.  If you LIKE their Facebook Page by December 15th, they will donate a can of food to a food bank in your honor.  If you use Facebook, do go LIKE their page.  And check out Marcia's giveaway while you are at it!

Tomorrow we move!  Hurray!  I am not very good in transition mode.


  1. i love to do my strength training/ab work during BL...it is so motivating to me :) good luck with the move! will be sending you positive thoughts that everything goes well and smoothly!

  2. Yum! I have never tried Coconut Dream but it looks so good! I had a smoothie today too and it was absolutely delicious. Good luck with moving. Transition periods are the worst so I hope everything goes as quickly and as smoothly as possible!

  3. wow, that sounds good but I've never tried it either.

  4. I love Coconut milk in smoothies... but plain it makes me queasy. Weird because I LOVE coconut! Happy packing!

  5. I just tagged you with a versatile blogger award. Check it out!

  6. I have to get some of that coconut milk! It sounds amazing!

  7. pina colada smoothies?! Sign me up! Also, your oats sounds delicious - I wonder what they would taste like with a little shredded carrot in there!

    I have been too afraid to buy the coconut milk, but I might just include it in my next shopping trip!

    I also don't know how you do it - moving in and out every winter...your organization is outstanding!

  8. You know what else is amazing is coconut butter. I add a scoop of that to my protein shake and it's amazing!

  9. Coconut milk is yummy! My family is moving into an Rv for a year next summer. So fun to read your sailing adventures. I hopped over from Livin' the Fit Life give away. Have a great day, Claire


Love it when you leave me a comment!
