Last night I just soaked in my couch time. My parents got home from their group session really late. That is typical for Tuesday nights so I usually do dinner on my own. I had a single pepperoni pan pizza from the freezer. My dad talked me into it a few days ago by saying that it was ranked high in Consumer Reports. I feel like that is all it takes to persuade me haha. It reminds me of my strategy of having to pick between two things at home… I will always choose the one that is closer to the expiration date. I just let it’s freshness decide for me. So it was pretty good. I cooked it in the oven to give it a better texture. Such a small thing, but it fills up so many bubbles. I watched Brooklyn Nine Nine and New Girl before having my snack. I went with greek yogurt and trail mix. I am bad at this whole variety thing…
This morning I was up early to shower and get ready for work. I planned out my morning and afternoon and then packed everything up. I made a double serving of original instant oats topped with cinnamon, frozen strawberries and chopped walnuts. I had my egg and cheese along with it. For snack at work I had Kashi vanilla squares with milk. At work I was able to finish the reconciling that I started yesterday. I also filed and recorded transactions for another company for 2012. I did all that and was able to do a little reading and internet surfing. It’s ok though… I can do that since I am not getting paid 😛
For lunch and my afternoon snack I decided to just have the exact same thing as yesterday. This morning I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to use a lot of brain power on deciding what I wanted to eat. I knew yesterdays meal and snack filled up all the necessary bubbles so that’s what I went with. Turkey, cheese, spinach, mustard sandwich, apple, carrots, trail mix, and I did go with yogurt instead of milk. Then for snack I had baked Cheetos and a WhatsoNutso bar. It was just about dark out when we got home so yet another day went by that I didn’t get to see Vinnie. We had to stop at one of my dad’s clients on the way home so I took that time to reply to my aunt’s last comment. I had no idea if the date for the Krispy Kreme Challenge had been set, so I decided to look it up and I discovered that it will be on Feb. 8th. Then I took that time to look for a 5 mile training plan. I found a good looking 8 week plan. So I did the math and I need to be at a healthy wait to start exercising again by Dec. 15th. I really need to make sure I keep up all this hard work so that I can make my goal possible! The countdown starts NOW! I want this so badly! I am thinking about emailing Dr. Chung, but I might just wait till I see him on Tuesday. When we made it home my mom talked me through fixing the mac n cheese for tonight’s dinner. She told me how to prepare it and everything so that I can make it in the future and so that I would know what all was going in it since mac n cheese is one of the foods that still really scares me. I am really nervous about it (achieving my goal of pushing myself to an 8 on my anxiety scale!) but I know it is what I need in order to get ready for the KKC! So I will practice my technique of thinking about all of the positive things and I will just relax and enjoy it, because my mom’s recipe really is delicious! Of course it is, Beth, it’s a knock off of Paula Deen’s.
Well it is just about dinner time, wish me luck!
