Saturday morning I headed to the gym before work where I did 45 minutes on the elliptical. I haven’t used an elliptical in a while so it was nice. I love them! I never snapped a pic of breakfast but I ate it in the car between the gym and work. Larabar + string cheese. I worked from 9-3 and don’t even remember what I had for lunch! The exciting part happens after work though. I headed up to my first blogger meet-up!!! Heather invited me to the CDNY Eat Drink Blog Cookie Swap. Except that it was kind of last minute and I didn’t have time to make cookies or a dish to bring up for dinner. I felt bad for not bringing any cookies so I didn’t take any home but I took a bunch of pictures of all the goods!
Heather was such a great hostess and I has so much fun meeting other bloggers! Hopefully there will be another meet-up while I’m home for winter break. :)
Back to the good old usual breakfast:
Then church. When I got home I started making some Bean and Barley soup to have for the rest of the week. It wasn’t ready for lunch though, sadly. Instead:
Chia bread w/ Teddie unsalted p.b. and cinnamon
Plain 0% Chobani w/ ground flaxseed, blueberries, and strawberries
I wasn’t home for long before I was once again out the door. I swear lately all I do at home is sleep! I headed down to my friend Eva’s to spend the afternoon with her since I hadn’t seen her in forever. We watched Rudolph and Santa Claus is Coming to Town and drank tea. Her parent’s also made a delicious dinner: Roast chicken, sweet potato, acorn squash, zucchini, and her dad’s creation: greek enchilada (= awesome!)
Oh how the weekend passes so quickly. Well obviously when you work on Saturdays, then the weekend isn’t really a weekend. I was so tired from all this driving around (both the blogger meet-up and Eva’s house are over an hour drive for me). So this morning I forced myself out of bed (slowly) and headed to the gym. I ended up getting there a half hour after I planned to and thus was a half hour “late” for work. I say late in quotations because I don’t really have to be there at 9 but I like to be. My schedule is pretty flexible which is great!
I did 45 minutes on the elliptical again. And forgot to take a picture of breakfast, again. This time it was a banana and a slice of chia bread. Lunch also went unpictured but was a bowl of Bean and Barley soup, a string cheese, and a bunch of strawberries. Today was a pretty good day, uneventful, which at this point I was glad for.
I had to inhale dinner in about 10 minutes when I got home. Egglplant parm and salad.
Then once again I was out! This time for a couple hours of church choir practice. It was long. Too long. I basically can’t function at this point I’m so tired. To make matters worse tomorrow is the long day at work. We are open until 7 instead of 5:30 so I will be working a 10 hour day. I think I need some gel insoles for my shoes because standing all day is killer on my feet!
