Because I spend the majority of my day(s) looking like this:
Yes yes yes…I know I look hot, sporting that awesome green head/earband with sunglasses and the wind-made Snookie hair bump. But wait? The marroon jacket and grey and black wind breaker!? I would show you my lower half, but I think you’d be embarrassed. Ok, it’s not that bad…I was wearing jeans and converse…with mid-calve high blue wool socks.
I know you want my fashion sense. And no, I did not wear this on my date…I do have normal clothes. Like, three. Hahaha…
Ergo, I work in the field because I don’t know how to color coordinate and never get to see a single soul for 8 hours straight. Oh yes…that is my life.
Do you have a staple style? Colors? Let me in on the secrets…because I obviously don’t know any of them. I normally try to follow the three color rule to get in some variety but otherwise I’m boring. I don’t even accessorize…
Anyhow…another cold morning for this chick. And what better to warm me up that oats, apple, cinnamon and almond butter? This stuff tastes great and sits like a brick in my belly…oh yeah.
Nom, nom, nom.
The morning didn’t start off quite as well as I would have hoped it would…since I woke up an hour late! Honey is usually good at waking me up just before my alarm clock but today…cat alarm fail. The sun was up when I opened my eyes when it should have still been down.
Luckily I made that delicious breakfast the night before and only had to make my lunch and it was quick. I went and did a bit of shopping yesterday and picked up some reeeeeeaaaaaal cheese. I’m sick of using the fake stuff because seriously, it just doesn’t hold me over and keep me full! I mean really? Why do I even think of eating things that aren’t real. Yet another turning point for me and my eating…yay.
Alas, I mixed an entire egg with some hummus and cooked it up. If you have not done this, I highly suggest mixing the two. It will chance your life. Ok, probably not, but it is certainly tasty! I laid it out on some real sharp cheddar cheese with a huge chunk of tomato and lettuce.
With a banana. Awesome filling and satisfying lunch. Held me over for hours.
As soon as I got home from work I jammed an apple down my throat and went out for the windiest run on the entire planet. I was actually fuming mad as it was blowing in my face and I think it was the only thing that kept me going. 3.5 miles later I was home, showered and off to see my counselor.
When I got home I was STARVING. Too bad the cat wanted to play because I had been gone all day. Which also resorted in a very large, deep and bloody cut on my right leg. Honey = 1, Melissa = Bloodied.
Thank goodness I had rice cooking in my cooker before I left so all I had to do was make the veggies and protein for my stir fry!!! After seeing Jenn’s stir fry from last weekend, I had to have some.
Brown rice sided with a mix of onion, garlic, cauliflower, broccoli, carrot, zucchini and a chick’n burger. All mixed with low sodium soy sauce and some ginger.
And yes, that picture was taken on my balcony. I was loving the colors, and natural lighting…since I was actually home for some.
Even after 9 hours of sleep last night, I’m still exhausted. So early bed tonight. Of course not after catching up on your blogs. Or at least trying. I’m trying my hardest!!!
