Too Much of a Good Thing

Too much of a good thing. Hey, it happens. Think about the last time you ate too much fiber. Think about the last time you drank too much red wine. Or how about the time you strength trained right through that rest day. Or ran one too many miles without having prepared for them. Too much of a good thing. It happens to the best of us. And apparently you can drink one too many glasses of water, too.

You can also have wayyy too much produce in the house. Seriously, I have produce up the what. I inherited a farm share this week, as the two ladies that typically share it were both out of town. So nice of them to give it to me, The peaches.

I have so many peaches right now! Eleven of them, counting the five I already had in the 'fridge. And a giant zucchini, plus about five tomatoes and countless tiny tomatoes. Red potatoes. Raspberries. A melon of sorts. I think I'll put some of the tomatoes on a whole wheat veggie pizza tonight, but I'm stumped when it comes to the peaches.

But at least I've got plenty of fresh snacking options to pick from over the course of the next few days. Beats crackers and cheese any day, really. Although I do love me some crackers and cheese, they can be quite filling. And unhealthy if you pick the wrong kind.

Let's get back to the water. I have an ultrasound today. Yes, THE ultrasound. The one that could tell me if we're having a boy or a girl. But we aren't finding out. So we'll go interested in seeing how our little one is growing, and with fingers crossed that they don't spill the beans. And I'll be crossing my fingers that I don't spill my bladder. I have to drink three 8-oz. glasses of water just thirty minutes before my appointment, and I can use the girls' room until AFTER my appointment is over.

Do they realize that I'm pregnant?

Do they realize that I don't go 15 minutes without using the little girls' room?

Talk about too much of a good thing. I'm in for too much water this afternoon!

Question: Have you recently enjoyed too much of a good thing?

Hi Tara! I can't wait to hear how the baby is doing :) Anyways, with all of those peaches I think it's high time to do some baking! Peach scones, muffins, cobbler, pie... the list goes on! Just make sure to enjoy your peaches before they go bad (because they do so quickly :().
