I am off to a slow start this morning. I feel a bit out of it. But, I’m up and surely things will start rollin’ pretty soon.
Yesterday rolled right on by. I love it when Mondays are quick and painless. Well, it wasn’t totally painless, I found out I have to pay $300 for that flat tire I had a while back because my car dealership filed the claim wrong. But whatever. I’m trying to push that out of sight and mind for now.
Lunch yesterday was a salad. Pretty standard fare – there were ‘maters, an entire avocado, radishes and some raspberry hazelnut dressing I jacked from the work fridge. The key to a filling lunch salad is plenty of fat, hence the whole avocado.
Later on I had a snack of some green grapes and a makeshift quesadilla, which was just a tortilla with a 2% cheese stick melted inside.
After work, I watched The Lovely Bones, which I didn’t really care for, while snacking on a Peach Chobani.
I think I may have liked the movie if I hadn’t read the book – but I felt like they took unnecessary liberties with the changes they made and basically changed the entire tone and feel of the story. I know it’s hard to adapt a book into a screenplay, but I think sticking to the original feel is important. But that’s just my two cents.
After I finished up the movie, I headed out to Body Pump. I’m slowly building up my weight, but I have the upper body strength of a cricket so it’s taking awhile. I enjoy the challenge of seeing if I can go up a little and make it through the set. Good stuff.
Dinner was very veggie oriented, one could even say it was very carb oriented if one liked the word carb (which I don’t). It started with a plate. On the plate was a slice of bread, spread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light and corn on the cob.
Speaking of words I don’t like, “cob” is one of them. It just sounds dirty.
But the actual food is pretty delicious. I love how sweet corn is. The bread was pretty phenom as well.
Next up, I moved on to a bowl of beets, broccoli and feta.
It was my first time ever cooking beets, and they turned out amazingly well. I roughly followed Steph’s beet recipe and they turned out great.
While all that cooking and eating was occurring, I was also watching Up in the Air, which I loved. I don’t even know what to say about it, other than it was great and I completely understand why it received so much Oscar buzz.
After the movie was over, it was bed time. Now it’s time for another day to begin. I think I’m going to be the only one in my department today, so I’d better get busy – lots to do!
What is your favorite movie genre? I like drama and quirky comedies, like I Heart Huckabees, but I’ll watch most genres. I’m least impressed by end-of-the-world dramas and zombie movies, and really terrible rom-coms.
