Hi, y’all! Happy Wednesday!
I’m happy to announce that I’m finally jumping on the WIAW train! Woo! Jenn over at Peas & Crayons started What I Ate Wednesdays as means for bloggers to share their daily eats every Wednesday. As y’all know, I don’t post my daily eats. My blog is really a hodgepodge of different things, but I thought it would fun to do WIAW to show the blog world a day in my food life.
I’m warning you now…99% of the time it’s really not that interesting.
Before I share, I just want to say that I had been looking forward to starting WIAW for about a week now. I planned it all out – wake up, workout, shower, get ready, make a smoothie, pack lunch, and head out the door to work. Annnnd, my day didn’t go as planned. This is what it looked like instead – slept in, woke up, showered, got ready, realized I was running late, threw together some breakfast/snacks, and left for work.
I promise I’ll be more put together next Wednesday!
I ate the Larabar with my morning coffee, the banana an hour later, and the yogurt and apple in the afternoon.
Now, we have predicament with lunch. I can’t take pictures at work – it’s not allowed. And at this point in time, I can’t compromise my real career for my blogging “career,” so a description will have to do. Lunch consisted of a huge (1 lb.) salad from my work cafeteria made with spinach, beets, celery, carrots, olives, peppers, black beans, feta, half a boiled egg, sunflower seeds, and balsamic dressing. I also had a quinoa and water chestnut salad on the side. Yep, the café at work is pretty awesome!
I also drank 1 liter of water throughout the work day. Go me!
For dinner, I had leftover Kofta Curry with Pulau (rice cooked with mixed veggies and spices). YUM! Something I forgot to mention on an earlier post was that this dish is extremely spicy! In fact, I had 2 whole glasses of milk with dinner tonight. My nose even watered! It was worth it though.
My day is never complete without something sweet. Tonight I gave into my sweet tooth with some Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips, a perfect complement to my spicy meal. And I may or may not go back for more!
Well, there you have it, my very first WIAW! Yay!
Before I peace out and plop myself in front of the television, I wanted to let some things off my chest. Some may call this venting, but I’m just going to call it sharing.
1. I got my hair cut on Saturday, and the lady f’ed it up. I thought something was off when she was done styling it, and I even questioned her on it. She reassured me that it was fine. I honestly don’t know why I didn’t take a closer look. Well, both yesterday and today, one of my coworkers took a look at it and said it really wasn’t that bad. The length is fine and it’s even and all, but the layers are very very very choppy. This upsets me because I asked for more blended layers. Anyways, I finally called the salon today and talked to the owner. She’s going to see me on Saturday and try to fix things. *Fingers crossed* UGH!
2. There is some major roadwork being done on the road I take home from work. So, instead of taking a left out of the parking lot and driving 15 minutes to get home, I had to take a right. It ended up taking me an hour to get home. I am directionally challenged as it is, but being a newbie to the area and never really having had to deviate from my route just made everything that much worse.
3. This final (promise) annoyance is not mine, it’s my sister’s. The poor girl started training for the half this past week, and now her knee really hurts. She went to the clinic at school, and the doctor told her she has runner’s knee. She was instructed to stay off of it for the next few weeks. She’s SO upset, and I don’t blame her. If any of you have experienced runner’s knee or anything like it, can you please share some advice?
Whew…I feel a lot better! Thanks for listening (or not)! Ha! These are just small things that with a little patience will take care of themselves…no biggie! I know there are a lot of people out there dealing with real issues, and my thoughts and prayers are with them. It’s ok to get annoyed and upset, but it’s my belief that we should always look at the bigger picture.
I’m off to watch some of my favorite TV shows! Woot woot! Have a good one!
