Verse of the day:
“God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’” – Job 37:5-6
Our first basketball game of the season was played last night! We came out on top with a score of 63 to our opponent’s 39.
For lunch, I knew I wanted something carb-friendly, so I used a few components that I had around the house for some successful game fuel ( I had pumpkin oats with ff cottage cheese & sugar free syrup for bfast, too but it was camera shy ;)).
-1 serving of a frozen steamfresh blend containing long grain and brown rice, peas, carrots, and corn.
-1 serving Steamfresh snap peas
-1 egg + 2 whites microwaved until cooked
-an unmeasured amount (to taste) of Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s
It was just like healthified fried rice!
On the way to the game, I also had a huge fuji apple.
We played Penn State York on their turf which meant an hour long bus ride…Momma FF & Jarid came to support! I swear, I have the best boyfriend in the entire world…who loved me even though I looked like this after the game…
It’s my first black eye EVER. This pic doesn’t quite do it justice, but this one does…
I caught a quite bony elbow right under my eye…within a minute of game time, it had swollen up like a balloon and turned black n’ blue almost immediately. In fact, Momma FF & Jarid didn’t even see it happen because they didn’t quite make it for the very beginning of the game. Coach pulled me out just enough time for the trainer to look at it. I told her I was fine, and went right back in! Playing was only challenging after that, in the aspect that I couldn’t quite see both the person I was defending and the ball at the same time… I was peering over a little hump that covered most of the vision in my right eye.
On the way home, we stopped for a team dinner at the most convenient sandwich shop that we came across.
Subway, Eat Fresh.
These are two of my favorite teammates. We are the only three on the team who played last year. Vets, we are 😉
I chose the turkey salad with sweet peppers, banana peppers, green peppers, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach, lettuce, onion, and Italian Free.
I was saving room for the Crunchmaster crackers I had on the bus after our pitstop. Seriously, I am in love with these Roasted Vegetable flavored brown rice crisps. They are SO delicious. Between these and Kashi’s Salsa Pita Chips I can’t choose a favorite.
Soon as the girls were finished up with their meals, we bussed it back to campus and I went home to crash.
For dessert, when I got home, I noshed on some blueberry cheesecake in the form of a Doctor’s Carbrite Bar.
Today is my Friday, thankfully! Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day, so all state employees have a paid holiday. Thank you, Lorddddd. Anyhow, I’ve got another game tomorrow, and a date with Momma FF! Stay tuned 😉
When was your first black eye and how did you get it?!
