Good evening bloggarinos. I’m kind of liking this new blogging schedule, it’s a’workin’ for me so far. Hope you are cool with it also.
You guys are seriously amazing. Thank you for all the well wishes. Makes me feel all warm inside when I read them
Today was a grumbly tummy day. I eat a LOT of fiber on the regular, but sometimes my stomach seems to get upset with me while other times it’s just fine.
I started the day with my unpictured usuals – coffee and a green monster. I was in an awkward state of grumbling all morning. As I commented on Janetha’s blog, a lady who has also been experiencing some strange tummy goings-on, my belly seemed to be singing the Star Wars soundtrack. Lots of low, ominous notes.
Anywho, I didn’t let my musical gut keep my from lunch. Said lunch, was pretty random, but tasty.
I brought two mini bagels, to be enjoyed with some Naturally More pb and whipped cream cheese, along with an apple.
But take a closer look at that apple… That was just sliced, not sitting out for several hours. Whaddufuh?
I was a little scurred of the brownness of the apple, but I ate it anyways. (And I wonder why my stomach hurts when I am constantly ingesting possibly toxic foods…) They tasted okay, but they weren’t as tart as Granny Smith apples usually are. I kind of liked that. As long as it doesn’t kill me.
The bagels were yummy alone, with pb and cream cheese individually.
But I decided this would be even better – the best of both worlds. And it was.
A look at the timeline of my plate. Avoiding the apples, eating all the diff. bagels at once. I don’t eat my foods one at a time. Do you? Notice how the poor apples are being neglected because they were ugly. How rude of me.
A few apples down, but they’re still lagging way behind.
It’s a face-off. It could go either way.
But I decide to save the best for last! The bagel sandwich with peanut butter and cream cheese stands alone. (Please tell me you know what childhood song that is from?!)
And that my friends, was completely pointless but made my lunch kinda fun. Eating at work doesn’t have anywhere near the glamour of eating at home.
After playing with my food I went back to work, until I got a really crappy email. I can’t really go into it, but it sent me into a major funk. It resulted in me having to write an almost $300 check, which was more than a little frustrating because I have been working so hard on my new budget.
I was feeling really proud of myself because I was on track to save MORE money this month than I had intended to. I told myself that every dollar over the intended savings amount could go into a fund with which I would let myself buy the things I’ve been wanting for so long (Garmin, iPhone, and not to mention Christmas gifts for others.)
But now that I have to write this check, it’s going to put me right back where I was before – so frustrating! But I guess life will always throw us curve balls, right?
So I stewed about it for awhile (longer than I should have) and then moved on. I couldn’t do anything about it, so I had to just accept the fact that money is going to continue to be really tight for awhile.
My lunch was super filling so it took me a long time to get hungry for a snack. I eventually broke for some carrots, nestled in the same baggie as yesterday.
Later on I had another Oikos Honey, this time with Nature’s Path Pumpkin Granola. Before adding the granola, I stirred up all the honey.
I liked it much better this time. I think my aversion before was that sometimes I’d get big pockets of honey all at once, which kind of grossed me out. I still think I’d prefer plain though.
Now I’m home and about to go on a walk with the roommate. It’s sooo lovely outside. I’m still taking it easy since I’m not back to 100% yet, but I am craving some movement!
I’ll be back tomorrow! Yay for Grey’s Anatomy tonight. I’m pumped
I’m taking the dessert for dinner at my brother and SIL’s on Sunday. They requested like angel food cake, chocolate or cookies. Anyone have any easy, fool-proof recipes that mean any of those requirements?
In the Battle of The Office v. Grey’s – where do you weight in?
