40 Days and 40 Nights
I feel like this whole week is just flying by! I can’t believe tomorrow is already Thursday. Tomorrow is a normal work day for me but there’s a meeting I need to attend plus more work on a new project so tomorrow should continue the trend and be over before I even realize it. Then Friday I’m getting trained on a new version of our design/drafting software the whoooooole day which will also go by super quickly. Then Saturday it’s my mom’s kinda sorta birthday. She’s a leap year baby (she’s only 12 lol) so she doesn’t have an actual birthday, but she makes us celebrate anyway. Any ideas on what to get a mom who never asks for anything? Send them my way, I have no clue what to get her!
So for breakfast I continued the Chobani trend of the week and had another peach yogurt with peak protein granola.
I had to stop myself from licking the container clean, I just love this flavor.
I was so excited for my lunch I almost couldn’t wait to eat it! But I held off until a normal hour, and had my leftovers from last night’s dinner out. Gosh this was even better then last night! Michelle and I talked about it at lunch and how we just want more and more of it.
I was hungry for a snack around 3 but there just wasn’t much time to eat. It was a crazy day where I felt like I was running around the office more then I was at my desk, I am in no way complaining being at my desk for 9 hours a day really drives me nuts. It was nice to have things to do that didn’t involve sitting there.
I had to meet with my personal trainer tonight so I had to have a quick dinner. And it’s Ash Wednesday so that means no meat for me. I went the easy route and had an egg wrap. I had 2 scrambled eggs, with 2 mini sweet peppers mixed in, and some onion. On the side I roasted 2 baby white potatoes with a small amount of olive oil, garlic powder, and onion powder. Such an easy meal but completely satisfying!
There was too much egg to fit all in the wrap so I had some on the side as well.
Those potatoes were roasted perfectly.
So did you give anything up for Lent? I’ve been toying with giving up meat and I still haven’t decided yet, but I think I’m going to do it. It’s only 40 days right? It’ll give me the chance to try new things, and I think to get out of this food rut I feel like I’ve been in, it’s just the right choice for me right now. I was scared to put it on the blog because I’m afraid I might not be able to do it. But if it’s on the blog it will hold me accountable. I have great resources for vegetarian meals with all your wonderful blogs, and my best friend Michelle is a vegetarian as well so she’ll be able to help me on the way.
Since I typically eat meat I’m not going to be a very strict vegetarian, as it is I don’t eat too much red meat, it’s going to be chicken that’s going to be hard to give up. But I’m willing to give it a shot. Wish me Luck!
