Today is my cousin/roomie/colleague’s birthday! Happy Birthday Razzle Dazzle!
I have so many thoughts I need to number them today.
1. I WILL have a perfect, full of healthy choices eating day today. I have decided and am doing really well so far. I need more veggies in my life, and have been letting that slip over the last week.
2. Stop & Shop really grosses me out. I need to start eating only my own homemade foods, because we REALLY don’t know what goes into these things. I was waiting for them to write on Raz’s office birthday cake and they definitely had some type of nasty aerosol spray called “Baker’s Shine”. It was this spray to give bread products a shine. Seriously. I wanted to take an iPhone picture but the little old lady writing on the cake was so nice and I felt bad.
3. Only in Rhode Island… Only in R.I. do people hear the word snow and rush to the market, where they proceed to run out of things like milk, bread, and eggs. I am being serious! Oh, and don’t forget the batteries and water! We are expecting loads of snow tomorrow, and that makes me happy because I am not due to fly out and therefore will not have to deal with annoying and sad delays.
4. My food for the day!
Breakfast: A healthy dose of mush for ya. 1/4 cup old fashioned oats reheated in the micro with a bit of water, 1 mini banana, 1 tbs peanut butter, and 10 g slivered almonds
Lunch: I didn’t like the hummus so I skipped on the salad and hummus in the picture. I am going to use that fabulous baby spinach for a dinner salad instead. So lunch was simply a large bowl of leftover soup! made with frozen veggies, 1 zucchini, a can of kidney beans, 1/2 vegetarian bouillon cube, and a few cups of water. It is really good!
I am not sure what to do now though because without that extra salad plus healthy fats from the hummus I am still vaguely hungry. I think I will dig into my light snack in about half an hour after I finish tomorrow’s payroll. I am leaving work right on time to go home, put on comfy sweats, grab a book, fill up gas… and head to my mani/pedi!
As indulgent as it is I am treating myself to a mani/pedi at my favorite salon (BlueSky Spaworks) once a month until the wedding! It is so relaxing and enjoyable!!!!
Have a fabulous afternoon! Cross your fingers for lots of snow tomorrow so I don’t feel bad about staying in to make turkey chili and wrap presents and bake cookies and watch Elf!
