Sorry for the lack of post yesterday!  But…I had a good reason, promise!

I hosted the Korean Red Cross Youth!

They came to the Red Cross National Headquarters and my fellow Crossers and I hosted fun activities and a tour of the facilities, namely our Disaster Operations Center! Very cool, very fun.  While most didn’t speak English and the language gap was huge, it still managed to be very funny, and I think they all had a great time.

Before this shindig, I whipped up my favorite Perfect Oatmeal (see recipes!), and sipped about 1/3 of a Dunkin Donuts Coconut Iced Coffee with a dash of skim milk.  For lunch, I had a big bowl of beef and bean chili.  Our office is so darn cold, I always crave something hot for lunch!

I worked out (shoulders, lats and abs) and did the arc trainer for 30 minutes before heading to my friend’s house for a much-needed friend party!  For dinner, I had a salad with asian sesame lite dressing and deli turkey, as well as a Yoplait lite.


There was puppy chow at the party.

For those of you who have never had this insane dessert, it is chex cereal with melted chocolate chips, peanut butter and powdered sugar.  Yes, a heart attack.  I munched on it all night, but did NOT let myself go overboard!  My finnicky stomach stayed happy!

I also sipped:

And we played the always-fun Apples to Apples!

The R-rated version.  Hilarious.

Off to explore the National Gallery of Art with a friend visiting from Jersey!  Hoping for no rain!
