Doesn’t come in a jar! Bug Juice comes from who you are!
Classic Disney Channel reality television, before reality television was your only option. I thought of this show today because it’s a scortchah in New England, which means summer, which means summer camp, which means BUG JUICE: my favorite summer TV show of all time. I definitely just watched the first 10 minutes of Episode 1 on Youtube. I love the internet.
I was dying to go to summer camp as a kid, but I was never able to. I’m guessing it was too expensive. For some reason, I felt like summer camp would have been the best experience ever. And by felt, I mean feel because I still wish I had gone to camp as a kid. I still feel like I missed out on something special. Wah wah wah poor me. I’ll shut-up. Anyone out there lucky enough to go? I’m jealous.
Work it Out
I did something out of character today.
I woke up at 5:15, and went to the gym.
That’s right, I squeezed in a workout before work. I thought it was impossible. Overly ambitious. And crazy. But I did it! And it was great! I ended up doing a machine mix-up workout (25 min treadmill, 10 min elliptical), inspired by pbfingers. Here’s what it looked like:
After finishing my cardio, I drove home and did Week 4 of Ripped in 30. Then I showered, ate some breakfast, and headed into the office! I was on time too, bonus points.
I wanted to get a workout in this morning because after work, my family was getting together for dinner to celebrate my cousin’s birthday. Before I left for the cookout, I stopped at the apartment to quickly install my air conditioner. I was welcomed by a thermostat that read 93 degrees. Thank God for AC!
While I was home, I whipped up a quick batch of fruit dip to bring to the party. Here’s the recipe!
Honey Goat Cheese Fruit Dip
Adapted from Peanut Butter Fingers. Serves 1.
1 oz goat cheese
2 1/4 tsp honey
Stir crumbled goat cheese and honey together until a creamy texture is achieved. Serve with fruit (or anything else your little heart desires!)
This dip was super yummy! I didn’t get too many good pictures of it (it was 93 degrees, remember? gimmeabreak), but don’t let the lack of photos fool you. I think I prefer this dip to the cream cheese/fluff one I’ve made before, and this is definitely much healthier!
The family cookout was fun, and delicious! I had some pulled pork, with a little pasta and potato salad. I snacked a little too much on the chips…and once the cookies were brought out, I knew I was in trouble.
Lesson learned: Meghan. You cannot eat one cookie. One cookie will ALWAYS equal at least 3 cookies.
Lesbehonest, 5 cookies.
I feel sick.
