I am so incredibly thankful that this week is over.  It’s been a tough one, it went by fast but I’m a little stressed out over something.  Unfortunately I can’t go into detail until next week.   So please excuse me, but this post is going to be a quickie.

For breakfast today I had a peach Chobani with my peak protein granola.

By the end of the week my desk is covered in those little post-it notes. 

My lunch today came from Andrew’s boss at the pharmacy.  They ordered sandwiches and they were gigantic so she wrapped up 1/2 and sent it home with Andrew for me.  It was eggplant parm!  Didn’t I just have that like Monday?  Well I am not one to turn down free food so I brought it into today to lunch.  This is actually only a quarter of it I did my good deed for the day and passed the other 1/2 on to one of the guys at work who forgot to bring something for lunch.  Pay it Forward.

Because I got this a few days ago the roll was a little soggy so I removed that and just ate the eggplant, it was good, and much thicker then the ones I got for dinner on my birthday.  Also less breading.  But the sauce was just okay.

For dinner I had every intention of having a veggie burger.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  I wanted a veggie burger because I wanted pickles, and what goes better with pickles then a burger.  Since I kindly gave away my last pickle on Saturday I stopped at the store to grab another jar but none of them were as bright green as I like so I sulked and grabbed a pizza crust instead.  I decided to make a “meatball” and pineapple pizza, again.

I used 2 “meatballs” crumbled up, and a handful of pineapples, and mozzarella cheese, on a whole wheat crust, just I needed after such a bad day.

After digesting and watching TV, Andrew and I headed out to the gym.  We were riding along talking when all of a sudden the street and traffic lights went out, we saw sparks flying, and the car in front of me slammed on their breaks. A telephone pole had fallen on a car just 2 cars in front of us.  Andrew immediately called 911 but apparently others had already done the same because they already knew about the accident we were stuck there on the highway with live wires dangling just above our car.   I was trying to look into the car to see if anyone was moving, it didn’t appear like there was.   I was freaking out, if that had happened a second later that would have been us. It was a terrifying thought, and although I’ve said today was a bad day it put it all into perspective.  We saw the driver on a stretcher leaving the scene in an ambulance but they were completely covered by a blanket,  I just hope whoever that person was is okay.  What a horrible thing to happen.

We wound up getting to the gym around 9:30 and that’s just too late for me, I worked out for a quick 40 minutes,  and my stats were:

    • Calories burned: 358 (40% Fat)
    • Max Heart Rate: 170
    • Avg Heart Rate 146

Not too shabby for a quick workout (mostly strength training).  I’ll definitely be working out a lot harder tomorrow.

So my plans tomorrow are to go to the chiropractor, go take a tour of an assisted living facility with my mom (for my grandparents), which may or may not include a free lunch, and then later on go out with some friends that weren’t able to come out last Saturday when I celebrated my birthday.  Should be another fun filled weekend!  Hope you all had a great  Friday night.

    This whole week including this weekend has passed by SO fast! I sat and did an exam ALL day yesterday so it hasn’t even felt like a weekend to me. It’s so weird, I’m still trying to figure out what day and time it is! Haha. Today we change the clocks an hour forward here in Sweden which totally slipped my mind (because I couldn’t even remember what day it was!) so I missed my yoga class this morning… boo!! 😦 Hope you had a great evening with your friends!
