Happy Tuesday everyone! I will fully admit that I am still dragging a bit from our weekend out-of-town. Actually to be fully 100% honest, I am kind of in a funk! I haven’t really felt like my usual “chipper Kelly self ” since last week. What is my deal? I am usually pretty good at pulling myself out of a mood but I can’t seem to shake this. (BIG SIGH) Oh well…I am sure it will pass! This morning’s workout was 5 miles at 8:10/pace followed by 45 minutes on the elliptical. My calves are screaming!!! :)
Dinner last night was orange ruffy (my ultimate favorite fish) sandwiched between an Arnold Sandwich Thin and green beans! Twas yum! :)
Yesterday I also made, quite possibly, the best steel cut oats EVER!! Strawberry Vanilla Oats!!! Into the crockpot went 1 cup steel cut oats, 4 1/2 cups water, 4 Tbsp brown sugar, and 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract. Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. When they are finished I stirred in 1 cup chopped frozen strawberries and we are set for the week!!

How many people have heard about the exhibit Our Body? Our Body The Universe Within is a breath-taking exhibit that literally and figuratively goes under the skin revealing the complexity of the human body. The exhibit consists of over 200 specimens including whole bodies and anatomical displays. Everything has been preserved by a process called polymer impregnation. These are REAL…HUMAN…BODIES!
Our Body: The Universe Within allows people to learn about their own bodies and, ultimately, teaches them how to take better care of their health and make positive lifestyle choices. The exhibition enables them to see and understand the medical conditions friends and family members face in a whole new way. The exhibits cutting-edge MicroWorld display features high-magnification images of healthy and diseased skin, organ and cell samples. The images under extreme magnification allow visitors to investigate otherwise invisible cell levels that impact our health.
As you enter the exhibit, you will have the opportunity to examine the human body as a whole. Continuing throughout the exhibit, you will journey through each of the body’s major systems allowing you to see first hand how they function and relate to other systems.
The exhibit is now open (thru September 22nd) at the brand new STARK CENTER located inside of DKR-TEXAS MEMORIAL STADIUM (enter thru gate 16 of the new North End Zone) at THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN.
