A word about today’s eats: Can’t win them all..and that’s okay.
Morning started with half of a satsuma. I ended up eating the other half later in the morning on a break. I really wasn’t even hungry for this, but starting my metabolism up is important to me so I ate.
Once I felt good enough about my appearance for work, off I went! It’s funny that, even though I’m not even looking for anyone, I feel like I care more about how I look now that I’m single. It just makes me feel better when I think I look okay. That’s not crazy right?
On my 10 minute break I downed a double short egg nog latte. With the two shots, this is pretty much just 4 oz egg nog cut with 2% milk. I know that’s still pretty high in fat but hey, at work I need this to keep me going!
Surprisingly, today though, I was given my breakfast break early at 8am! I could have survived off that fat awhile longer, but when you’re told to take your break you take it. I ate my packed Weetabix with fresh blueberries and an oatmeal nut melody mix. Mm mm. I also sipped on an unpictured tall iced Americano with 1 pump hazelnut and breve. Meh, it was okay…definitely not my drink though!
Once I was finally off work (omg it was the slowest shift ever), Chase and I had a friend-date to get lunch and do some shopping. I’ve been craving Red Robin so we hit it up around 1:30pm. I ended up trying their new Smoke & Pepper burger with a Gardenburger patty. Extra sharp cheddar cheese, smoke and pepper ketchup, pickle plants, on a ciabatta bun. I ended up eating the whole damn thing because 1) I was absolutely ravenous and 2) the ciabatta bun was like having a light white bread around your burger. It seriously just wasn’t substantial! I also drank some of the Trenta black tea lemonade (no classic syrup) I got for Chase and I to share.
After eating, we hit up Target and Famous Footwear and I did way too much shopping. >.>
With such a huge lunch, I didn’t feel like much for dinner. Instead I munched on popcorn with 2 glasses of boxed wine while I watched an episode of the very last season of Dexter! I can’t believe it’s the end!!
Hope you all had a great weekend. I’m trying really hard to force myself to concentrate to get papers done and study for my two big exams for Tuesday.
