That’s what my day has been filled with. I ain’t complaining, but I need some serious variety, asap!
But thank you all for the great words of encouragement about the blind date! It’s not set in stone for this weekend, but when it does happen I will make sure to let you know; how could I not!? And I loved hearing your stories about blind dates…and how to go into them with an open heart and mind. You never know what could happen, right?! I know the more I think about it, the more I’m excited for it!
Anyhow…sorry a few of you were “taken back” by the bobcat photo yesterday but please understand, the blog reflects my life, including things like my job, and if that includes things I find in the desert (dead or not) I find amazing, I’m going to share it! So I’m sorry if I scared you; these things are part of my life, no questions asked!
Well, my day wasn’t that exciting food wise or job wise as it was just hot as ever out in the valley I was wandering around in. No amount of water could keep my mouth from being dry. arg.
I wanted one of my muffins for breakfast this morning but knew just having it wouldn’t suffice and keep me full for work, so I mixed it up with a handful of kashi h2h, berries, a peach and some pb.
The morning was normal and we did about 6 miles of walking this morning with a bunch of observations for work…
I had a big juicy fuji apple for a snack mid morning then devoured my pb and banana on sourdough sandwich for lunch. Only bad thing about refrigerating bread, especially sourdough, and then eating it in a dry environment is it starts to taste kinda stale. Ick.
I had one of my homemade blackberry granola bars for a snack before getting home and falling asleep so fast I don’t remember even laying down on the floor. Yep, didn’t even make it to my bed. It was a glorious…30 minutes of sleep. It felt like forever. I find it disappointing when I wake up and feel like it’s been hours but it’s only been minutes. Anyone else feel that way to?
I was hungry pretty early tonight and as much as I feared eating earlier than my “normal dinner time” I ate anyhow; way to listen to my body!
It was a night of leftovers…and I mean all leftovers:
- eggplant and onion taco filling
- spaghetti squash
- roasted brussel sprouts
- roasted pine nut couscous
Somehow I forgot to add in some sort of protein, egags! So I snacked on some cashews (1/4c…this is helping me control the “lonely eating” aspect of my life) and then a small handful of pb & chocolate chips…
And this is waiting for me in the fridge. along with a mug of cold chocolate milk…without the milk…uh huh.
It’s Wednesday tomorrow! Woohoo! Almost to the weekend!
