For those of you who don't know, I work in the back end of a jewelry store, selling pre-owned and antique jewelry on eBay (eBay ID: thebarefootjeweler if you're interested). Well yesterday we had a question about an 18K yellow gold and garnet ring in a size 7 1/4. It's very pretty, even though it's huge and not my style, so I tried it on. It FIT MY FINGER!
Remember how excited I was when my wedding rings dropped two sizes before Christmas? Well my engagement ring is now a 7 3/4 and my wedding ring is an 8 because it's a wide band. This ring is a whole HALF SIZE SMALLER than my wedding rings and it fits FINE. Score!
NSV #2 is the banana debacle. So yesterday I ate my banana after dinner. NO PROBLEMS. I think I might have been a teensy bit hungrier than usual in the morning but that's way easier to deal with than being starving all day.
My very non-scientific deduction is that the heavy dose of carbs in the morning is too much for my system and I should stick to peanut butter or eggs and a whole grain English muffin instead.
Thanks for all the suggestions as to how to eat the bananas, though! I think someone suggested slicing them and freezing them. I think I'll do that and half dip them in melted dark chocolate for a treat sometime. =)
On a side note, I read a blog yesterday where someone gushed over "clean eating" and then described their favorite snack as a Fiber One bar topped with PB2. Not to bitch, but I'm pretty sure that's not "clean eating". (DISCLAIMER: I am neither for nor against clean eating. It probably works for some people, just not for me.)
To clear up confusion here is the definition from cleaneatingmag.com:
"The soul of clean eating is consuming food in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible."
