Nerdy Nutrients

It was on our car ride back from Arizona that the BF and I decided we had some work to do - nutritionally speaking that is. We both need to lose a few pounds, clean up our eating habits, increase/start an exercise routine, and stop making excuses. While we both suck and almost all of those things, we decided that maybe combined we could help each other out. Hopefully one of us is motivated when the other one needs some motivation. I asked all of you, my faithful readers for some quick, easy, healthy recipes [you can still email me some at nerdyapril@gmail.com] and you delivered. 

But tonight's dinner didn't actually come from a recipe...that's right, little old Nerdy April herself dreamed it up. And.....it was so simple, easy and delicious, I thought I would share just in case ya'll need some Nerdy Nutrients.

Ingredients:

Flat bread (I bought the garlic flavor and it was delicious)
Fresh Asiago Cheese
Fresh Goat Cheese
Mushrooms (can be the "fancy" package, but I just bought regular and it was good)
Olive Oil
Seasoning to taste for dipping (I did olive oil with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning)

Directions: Get out a pan (I used a pizza pan because it was clean). Spray with cooking spray (duh! My mom told me to ALWAYS spray except Angel Food Cake). Place flat bread on pan and add desired amount of cheese and mushrooms. Bake for 10-15 minutes (until cheese is melty) at 350 degrees. 

I'm telling you it was delicious, and 30 carbs for half a flat bread (for those who need it). Tonight we just ate the flat bread with salads topped with our favorite toppings (pecans, cheese, etc.). And shout out to Denise for the Ken's Creamy Caesar Lite dressing, it was perfect!!!

Oh, and don't forget the post dinner entertainment!!

Nerdy April: Chriiisssss!!!!! Noooooo!!! Don't eat Pee-wee!!!! Think of the calories!!!!!

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

Critical Space Item: Handle With Extreme Care

Someday I want to open a box. The box will be neatly wrapped up with an excessive amount of packaging. Its contents will have been years in the making, and even though it won't weigh much, this small box will represent a huge step forward.


As most flight hardware begins, the space-rated closed-loop insulin delivery and monitoring device inside the box will be sterile and stark. But as the batteries whir to life and insulin is placed within, it will become an extra appendage, an external pancreas, for this Type 1 astro-hopeful. Bluetooth connections will be made and doctors, hungry for telemetry from my bionic body, will be at the ready. We will rely on each other - he on I for his very existence, and I on him for my continued existence. Together we will make up one whole, completely functioning, Type 1 Diabetic astronaut.

Admittedly, this dream feels further and further from reality. I have lived with this disease just under 20 years now, and the cure has always been "just 5 …
