Lazy Friday Night
Oh my gosh I’m so happy it’s the weekend! We had another round of layoffs today at work. I knew who was going to be laid off ahead of time so I knew I was safe but it’s hard to see co-workers go. I had a meeting with my boss’s boss today, he reassured me that I was not going anywhere and that they are actually spending a ton of money to get me some more training next month. I was also told I will be getting a nice raise next month because right now I’m doing the work of 4 different people who were previously laid off. I was also told I have to write my own review next month. Has anyone ever done this? I have a feeling it’s going to be pretty hard.
This morning I remembered my breakfast and had my usual 0% Fage the last of my peak protein granola, and some dried cranberries. I don’t know that I’ll ever tire of this combination.
I had some carrot sticks a little later.
I ate about 1/2 of this baggie.
Lunch today was something I was really excited about. I had 2 servings of brown rice and 4, 1 ounce meatballs, I made the Monday night. I was afraid these meatballs weren’t going to taste that good because I had started making them when I realized I didn’t have an egg to mix in. So I poured a teaspoon of olive oil to bind them and that did the trick. I baked them in the oven for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees and they came out really moist and delicious, I definitely didn’t taste a difference without the eggs.
I think I actually liked the meatballs and sauce better over rice then pasta. Weird.
This held me over until 4 and then I had some grapes.
For dinner tonight we made turkey burgers using the same recipe as last time.
I topped it with a mozzarella string cheese.
I topped it with some organic ketchup, pickles, and lettuce.
On the side I had some steamed French Cut Green Beans.
I had another serving of the green beans after this. I love steamed green beans they are so yummy.
I feel like I had a definite lack of veggies today so I’ll be making up for that tomorrow.
Tomorrow morning I plan on making Oatmeal again, do any of you have a favorite combination you think I might like? I’m going to make myself eat oatmeal until I love it. I’m kidding of course, but I know how filling, and how good it is for you I definitely think I’m only doing myself a favor by trying it over and over again.
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday night! Andrew and I were supposed to go out for a friend’s birthday but it was canceled, so we decided to stay in. I love lazy Friday nights after a long week of work.
See you tomorrow!
