I think most of us were pretty busy today on this ‘belated Monday’. It’s nice to get that extra day off, but there’s lots of catch up to play upon returning to work.
I got pretty mixed reviews on the 4-day work week. I think the Virginia Mayor’s idea of teleworking from home on Mondays is a better plan. I could totally get down on working from home one day a week (or every day).
My work evaluation never ended up happening today, surprise surprise. I won’t go into it, but my job frustrates me to the max quite often.
I did have a yummy yogurt mess, which made the day a little bit better.
I tried to get out my frustration with an easy 2 mile run, but my legs were not cooperating. My knees and shins were throbbing the whole time I tried to run, so after 12 minutes I just walked the rest of the time. I was disappointed, but I don’t want to push it and get hurt. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back into it in a few days.
For dinner, I really wanted to make these carrots, I just didn’t know what to pair them with. So I went the easy route and had a veggie burger on a sandwich thin.
The carrots turned out really good. They look kind of burnt but it’s just the soy sauce. I pretty much stuck to the recipe, but I used reduced-sodium soy sauce and half the butter.
The veggie burger, however, was very uninspired. I really need to get on the bus and try making my own veggie burgers. I know they’d be so much tastier and better for me. I topped the burger with a little feta cheese and hot sauce. It was okay, just kind of there.
It was about as meh as it looks, definitely needed some more green.
After making dinner, I made lunch for tomorrow. I never do that! It made me feel better about my crappy dinner
Now I’m going to do some yoga and then catch up on some reading. I just finished watching 90210 and the new Melrose Place and I feel like I lost many, many brain cells in the process. I must try to restore them before it’s too late!
