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!

    What a relief that you don’t have to get laid off eh… that’s actually really awesome that you get to have even more training. Especially when it includes a raise 🙂

    Keep up with the oatmeal. You can learn to love it, guaranteed! Kath has tons of oatmeal combos that always look delish. Or even just googling oatmeal should give you some inspiration. Make sure there’s always banana in it! As long as you’re a banana fan of course. Might not be so good if you hated the things haha.
