How not to start a blog:

January 26, 2010

Lesson 1:  If photos are necessary for the enjoyment of one’s writing, make an attempt at making sure you have a cooperative camera before beginning!

Lesson 2:  If you come to the conclusion that it is no one’s fault but your own after unsuccessfully snapping/uploading a weeks worth of pictures from TWO different cameras that appear to be taken in a cave, quit sulking and purchase a DSLR!

Lesson 3:  When purchasing a DSLR camera, DO NOT complete the transaction without first confirming that it is not JUST the body of the camera that you are receiving, but the lens as well!

Lesson 4:  Read any and all instruction manuals before attempting to use the brand new piece of complicated (i might be alone on this) equipment.  Once finished, be patient while taking the first few pictures and make sure they are suitable enough to upload.

Lesson 5:  Assure that you have a memory card in the actual camera prior to Lesson 4 or else further disappointment may ensue.

Lesson 6:  Drive around to 5 different locations in search of the proper memory card; missing 15 minutes of your morning lab in the process, and slowly start to realize that you have now spent more money on unnecessary equipment to photograph the groceries that you could have purchased for the next six months.

Ohhh Well…
On the bright side, beginning tomorrow, my meals will be able show themselves off in high definition haha… Let’s hope!
For now here is a pic of my lunch that i made quickly this morning on my way out the door.
-Sweet Potato Fries (Baked, Drizzled w/ EVOO)
-Almond Butter + Banana + Nutritional Yeast Sandwich
On Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread (Don’t knock it till’ you’ve tried it!)
-A Gnu Foods Cinnamon Raisin Bar (1 of top 5 fav. bars!)
-A Clif C Bar (first time trying it, i’ll let you know!)
-Carob-Coconut Energy Chunks (Whole Foods Bulk Section)

I have a slight addiction to the bulk section at Whole Foods.  That should tell you three things about me;  i am cheap, i eat minimally processed foods with short ingredient lists, and i secretly enjoy pulling the levers on the bulk bins (i am easily amused).

I have to get to class, but i am PUMPED to do some A+ work tonight and post my brilliant, artistic grub photos tomorrow ;)
Until then, i leave you with proof of how much i enjoy technology.  I can even find a way to make the Wii complex…
Look at the concentration!

      Believe it or not i have actually tried those once, and only once because they were 3.49 a pound so i bought 1 and never saw them again! Slightly disappointed that no candy spilled out when i cracked it open, but the taste made up for it :) So i need to ask a favor… More of an opinion actually on what type of camera to buy… long story short i am open to any suggestions that won’t break my bank account for the rest of the year! Expect an email shortly, i will have some time at work tomorrow to go through those programs and get creative!

  2. Glad that you found my blog and that you enjoy it as well as the yoga post! And that it was a great summary for you; I liked what you said about any questions that have ever come up in your entire personal training career have been answered in my post. Thank you, and I hope you keep reading!
