Another day of work and honestly, with each new day I think I am liking the job more and more. Everything is just so nice and relaxed, everyone is pretty friendly, and I have yet to do a task I didn’t like (well, except for sweeping the floor but that hardly counts). I didn’t even mind having to go in an extra hour early this morning (7:00 am instead of 8:00 am) to learn how to do pound cakes. I woke up at 5 (don’t ask me why, I just like having plenty of time in the morning to get ready and chill and such) so I was obviously relatively tired this morning, but I became alive fairly quickly.
The early rising plus being on my feet all day caught up with my tonight though as I was ready for bed around 7. Didn’t happen. I went for a brief walk with my mom but we got rained on so that was a bust. I really wanted to get some kind of other exercise in today but I just didn’t feel up to it. So instead I read magazines and watched Sex in the City on dvd. And now I’m going to head to bed after this post.
But first I’ll talk about food. So I started the day off starving once again. Who’s starving at 5:00 in the morning? Weird. But anyway, I made oatmeal. It looks small but there was almost 1/3 cup of oats in there, plus I threw in some PB Puffins and Corn Bran Squares, some rasbperry yogurt and banana slices. I also ate about 1/3 of a pumpkin muffin.
Lunch was, once again, not photographed. I really need to get into the swing of taking a picture of the packed lunch right in the morning. New concept for me! Anyway, I had a loaded veggie salad with chickpeas. It was decent. I also had a strawberry granola bar from a box I’ve had in the cupboard forever that I would really like to get rid of now. So trying to use those up is what got that bar into my lunch bag.
Once I got home I was pretty hungry so I did a fridge raid. I hate those. I had cottage cheese, hummus with rice crisps, mushrooms and fresh bread.
That held me over for a couple hours so I had a slightly later dinner. I made a quesadilla of sorts that I fried up in a pan with a bit of cooking spray. I filled it with hummus, salsa, tomato, spinach and a nutritional yeast paste. It was pretty tasty.
Then I went on a mini junk raid and had some grapes, a cookie, some Cool Whip Free and a small piece of chocolate.
I later made an iced coffee that I wasn’t really feeling for since I was kind of cold, but I’m glad I made it anyway because it tasted great and picked my energy up a bit. This one, loaded with ice, turned out pretty perfectly.
Now I need to sleep. Night!
