Hi guys! Whoa sorry about being absent! I was working on this transcription for a friend and I just wanted to get it done. And I did! It was an hour and 45 minutes long and that makes for a long transcribing session! I started last night and missed MT because of it. I’m not stressing over it though. I finally broke and called it a day around 7pm. Time for pizza! Hell yeah!
I did not make my own crust this week but just pulled out a WF crust from the freezer. Pizza had:
- Shredded carrot and zucchini
- Red onion
- Green pepper
- Banana peppers
- Jalapeno chicken sausage (most of it on Scott’s side)
- Mushrooms for Scott’s half
I had three pieces and I ate them all! I know and I was totally stuffed afterwards. Doh! Two and a half slices is my limit and I need to remember that! However I didn’t let it stop me from dessert.
Wine and some Mexican wedding cookies from WF. I had 1.5 of those. No picture because Scott was on wine/cookie picture duty and forgot. No biggie, y’all have seen them before! Snacks consumed while watching House Hunters. Then I hit the hay because I had an early wakeup call today!
I hauled butt out of bed at 6:30. Took care of Rocky, poured some coffee. No picture of the first mug because apparently I was groggy and not thinking straight. :p
And started work before 7am. So while I may not be getting up as early as some of you, I bet I started work earlier today! I busted out that document and had it done by 10:30am my time which was 7:30am their time because they are over on the other side of the U.S. I got Scott up, poured myself some more coffee and finally had some breakfast.
Yesterday was such a carb fest for me! A scone in the morning, chips at lunch, and then pizza and cookies later! :o Not that it matters, it’s just an odd occurrence for me. But the carb train continues today!
It was late this morning and I was tired so I didn’t feel like cooking anything. Thus I resorted to good ol’ yogurt and granola.
- 2% Fage
- Fruit and nut granola
- Ground flax
- Frozen raspberries
And another 1/2 of a pumpkin scone! Breakfast was amazing! After eating and putzing around on the computer for a minute, I realized that I was starting to get really crabby and cranky. And for no reason! Sure I was tired but why with the crankypants? I needed to change that and a sure fire way to get rid of crankies for me is to go for a run.
I wasn’t looking forward to a run at noon, I will admit it and own that statement. But I did it! It was hot and I was tired so I only made 3 miles but that is aces as far as I’m concerned!
I had a small glass of CS which almost tasted too sweet for me. Strange! Then I was back out with Rocky and Scott came along too! Once home I finally hit the shower and then made a glorious smoothie!
- 1C vanilla soymilk
- 1C unsweetened cranberry juice
- 1C water
- 1 red pear
- 1 Carrot
- Cucumber section
- Zucchini pieces
- 2 prunes
- Frozen peaches
- Frozen blueberries
I used soymilk today since we weren’t really having a traditional lunch. It was late in the day and I wasn’t super hungry nor was Scott. But I knew for sure I needed to get a smoothie in me! I needed the rawness of the fruits and veggies and I just needed fruits/veggies period. It didn’t quite fill me up though so I had more carbs!
A WW pita toasted and topped with PB and honey. Which I also forgot to take a picture of! Lordy, can you tell my brain is zonked? I made Scott an egg sandwich which smelled so good as it was cooking. A fried egg and black pepper is a favorite smell combination for me. Right up there with sauteeing onions and peppers. Mmmm!
Now we’re trying to decide what to do for dinner.
- Stay in and order take out?
- Go out and try someplace new?
- Stay in and cook something ourselves?
And in case you’re curious, I am totally less cranky now! Running, it’s good for what ails ya!
I’m starting to feel wiped out! So staying in just might be the winning choice!
