Half Way There

April 21, 2009 at 8:14 pm 10 comments

One good thing about these short weeks is that I’m already half way through the week.  The past 2 Fridays Andrew has been on spring break, and so was my sister, and my dad was off as well.  It didn’t feel like I had weird days off because so did everyone else, this will be my first Friday watching Andrew wake up and go to school while I get to stay home.  That’s definitely going to be weird!  Luckily I have plans with a friend to go walking on the trail on Friday as well as some chores I would like to get done.  Until June, I’m booked solid for Saturday’s and Sunday’s so that extra day off is going to be like a God send for me.  It’s so nice to have these positive thoughts instead of worrying about money and getting stressed out over my shorter work weeks.

I was running low on things to bring to work for breakfast and lunch today so I had to improvise a little.  I brought an Arnold Sandwich Thin and smeared some pb on it when I got to work.  Such a simple breakfast that does wonders at keeping me satisfied.

At lunch time I ran out to get a salad, once again I went to Green Leaf’s a create your own salad place in the outlet mall across the street.  I walked around the mall for my 15 minutes of Movement, and then ordered my salad.

It contained, grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, cucs, cheddar cheese, and red onions.  With some Balsamic dressing on the side.

I also grabbed one of their multi grain rolls for on the side.

I didn’t even come close to finishing that salad and plan on having the rest tomorrow for lunch,

After lunch I was panicking because I thought I had lost something super important.  I looked everywhere for it, and questions multiple people who might have it to sign off.  No one seemed to know where it could be.  I emailed a friend about how upset and nervous I was that I had lost it, she told me to say a prayer to St. Anthony so I did.  Within minutes of saying the prayer one of my co-workers IMed me to tell me he did in fact have it on his desk and returned it to me.  What a relief!  I was so happy and really think St. Anthony brought it back to me. 

When I bought my lunch today I splurged on a bag of my favorite SunChips.

Have any of you tried these?  Believe me when I tell you that they are better then the Harvest Cheddar.  They are a little bit spicy and so flavorful, do yourself a favor next time your out and pick up a bag of these.

After work I had to go to the store and pick up some essentials for the rest of the week.  Chobani has come back into my life and I’m already excited for my breakfast tomorrow.

When I got home I decided I wanted something super quick.  I cut up 4 mini sweet peppers and some onion and sautéed them until soft.  I put them on a tortilla with some cheese, added some spices and topped it with another tortilla.  After about 10 minutes I had a delicious quesadilla.

The 2 tortillas proved to be too filling and I ate a little less then 3/4’s of it. 

Well I’m waiting for my sweetie to get home with some aloe vera.  I have some sun burn on my back and it’s getting really itchy!

I hope you all have a fabulous night and a great Wednesday!

    Oh, I haven’t tried Garden Salsa before, but I love the Harvest Cheddar. They are always out of stock when I want some at the stores.
