Lately I feel like I’m all grown up, with work, family, extracurriculars, yardwork, and the whole nine yards. My days feel busy, my nights busy, my weekends busy, and my to-do list growing longer all the time. Stop the insanity! Can’t I just go back to a simpler time without all of this responsibility and business?!
Okay, done with my little rant now 🙂
Morning came too soon and I never got over feeling a bit tired today, and my right jaw joint is killing me (effing TMJD). My ass wasn’t dragging, but I was just tired, and the jaw thing annoyed the hell out of me all day. At least I started my day with a nice bowl of oats! I had a new idea–what if I nuke ’em right before Chris and I leave the house, then he drives and I eat in the car on the way to work? It worked out well! Another bowl of perfect oats–yay!
We had an early working lunch planned, so I messed around at work for like an hour and then we left for McCormick & Schmick’s Grill at Bridgeport Village. From the prix fixe menu I chose the chicken and shrimp rice bowl, sans shrimp. We also had a mixed greens salad. I was able to sneak in this pic when no one seemed to notice 😉
This was quite yummy, with a spicy kick and tender chicken. I almost yelled out at one point when my jaw suddenly hurt, but I figured out that small bites helped avoid it. The wontons were so yummy! I saved over half the meal for dinner, but ate all the wontons b/c I knew they wouldn’t stay crispy. For dessert we had a dark chocolate torte cake (like a slice of soft fudge practically!), of which I ate ~1/2.
Back at the office I busted out some quality work, had a phone meeting, blah blah blah…the day was over around 5. Chris wanted to visit Fajitas, but I ixnayed the idea b/c Mexi 3 nights in a row just didn’t do it for me. Since I had my leftovers available, I suggested just dropping Chris off at Fajitas while I went to do cardio–perfect. I had a little snack while playing with Lily before heading out.
Tonight I remembered some reading material and cardio flew by pretty quickly 🙂 I sat with Chris at the restaurant for a little while when I got back there, and we talked biz while I was feeling rather ditzy from busting my ass on the stair mill for 45 minutes.
Once home and cleaned up I nuked the rest of my lunch, which was bigger than I expected. Still tasted good, but I ate a little too much of it.
[Side note for y’all: I hate Tyra Banks. Bitch is so annoying, fake, and full of herself I nearly puke when I see her.]
I don’t know why, but when picking my new jar of peanut butter I went for Skippy Natural Super Chunk. One of those under-the-time-gun-and-not-thinking-fully choices at the store. It’s not bad, but I feel bad since I think the Maranatha was on sale, it’s organic, and it comes in a more earth-friendly glass jar with an aluminum lid.
Late this afternoon my mom called and said a friend invited us to a dinner fashion show event tomorrow, and I need to figure out what to wear! I think I’m going to end up wearing it to work all day… I had better go scope out the closet.
Nighty night folks!
