Today was really, really fast, and not in a good productive way. While I did get some work done, we left early for an afternoon event about 401(k) business and didn’t go back to work afterward.
Breakfast was my fave oats, but with ripe banana instead of raisins. I couldn’t let my nanner go to waste, so even though it is overly ripe for my taste I threw half of it in. Turned out okay! I think the nanner addition is growing on me…
Side note–I’m such a dork! I usually take pics at ultra high resolution, but that means that uploads take longer and more storage space is used. Today I forgot my memory card for my camera and ended up using the internal memory, but on like 2.1mp instead of 8.0. I think I’ll stick with 2.1.
When Chris was ready to eat lunch I wasn’t, so I snacked on my Fuji and my carrots while we talked. The Fuji was fabulous!! I’ve had a month of mealy or unflavorful apples, and finally I get a tasty Fuji
I made sure to capture Chris’ cute burger bun sandwich in the background. That’s a few slices of cheese sitting on it–he likes to eat those before he has the sando.
Before I knew it 1:15 arrived, and I realized I needed to eat my sando before we left to go downtown. Yummy!
The meeting went well, and afterward there was a small reception at the hotel for us. They served beef tenderloin with a cabernet sauce and rosemary garlic butter, rolls/breads/crackers, salmon-something-or-other, and a nice cheese plate. They also passed some mushroom tartlettes, chicken mousse crostini, and tomato mozzarella skewers. I had some beef tenderloin, some bread, and a few of the cheeses. It was really tasty, and considering the richness of the items I ate I was ready to call it good and not eat anything else for dinner. Chris thought otherwise.
This is where the bitch started coming out, as I got a little annoyed by our exchange in the car afterward. C:”We’re still going to Mexican, right?” K:”That was pretty rich food and I’m good.” C: “You don’t want to split something on happy hour?” K: “No, if I eat anything I think it needs to be fruit or veggies.” C: “But we planned on going to Si Senor afterward.” K: “That was before we knew they’d serve us food at the meeting.” C: “I would’ve eaten more if I knew that were dinner.” Blah! Fine, off to Mexican we went. He said he didn’t want me to just sit there and watch him eat for an hour, but I told him that’d pretty much be the case since I wasn’t hungry.
After he ate most of the Mexican Pizza he ordered, he said to eat one so he didn’t feel so bad. Great excuse for me to eat, so you can feel better. I had a tiny piece of the thing with some guac on it. Washed it down with my huge Diet Coke.
By the time we left Chris was annoying me, but not necessarily b/c of what he said, more like how he said it and the mood I was in. I guess the PMS bitch moved in and I hadn’t realized it until tonight.
I couldn’t get home, change, and get to the gym fast enough Feeling funktified I didn’t really feel like doing anything but a mega sweaty session of cardio while reading, so that’s what I did. I told myself a trip to Target afterward was in order for a little shop therapy. But first I had to do abs and stretch. While stretching I decided I’d get a nonfat sugar free vanilla steamer at the Starbucks in Target…mmm…hot, vanilla-y yumminess to accompany me while I wandered the store.
That didn’t happen Even tho Target is open til 10, Starbucks closes at 9, like 10 minutes before I got there. Boo. Oh well, I still wandered a bit. I checked out some decor, then headed to the food department to look at snacks. I was getting hungry again and everything looked really good. Oooh, how about some Moose Munch? Fruit leathers? Pop chips? Pepperidge Farm cookies? (Drooling).
I decided to get Chris a bag of pretzel sticks as a kind of peace offering, and found myself some Kashi TLC snack bars. Of course I forgot the coupon I have for them at home… oh well.
Since I was dreaming of like 1000 things to eat while gone, I formulated a reasonable snack while driving home and went straight for it: pumpkin flax granola, the other half of the ripe nanner, raisins, and almond milk. Yay, so tasty, but I was still craving food.
Out came the Genisoy Crisps! Mucho enjoyment for minimo calories.
I let that settle, but still wanted something, and something sweet. I grabbed the candy tray that I never touch and sorted through, pulling out Skittles and taffy. I only ate three pieces of the taffy and called it good since I was satisfied.
I hope the bitch in me is at bay tomorrow. Do you get emotional and kinda crazy, too? Fuck, I may just eat those Skittles after all.
