My To Do List Doesn’t Make Me Special. I Do That ALL On my Own!

FOOD

Yesterday started out with another juice.  This one was tomato, cucumber, lemon, and parsley.  I was nervous because I hate parsley, but I know it has some amazing nutritional benefits (most things we think of garnish does), so I’m on a mission to find a way to stomach it.  Turns out, that works best for me by juicing I think.  It was surprisingly tasty.  I think the highly juicy tomatoes and cucumber masked the parsley taste, which is just fine with me.

more proof, since only that would have turned my juice green!  (cucumber by itself is mostly clear)
JUICE GOBLET

Lunch was a Mexican BAS before heading to the movies.

romaine, red onion, guacamole, and salsa.

Of course one cannot go to the movies without popcorn.  At least not this one.  I had about half of a small bag of plain popped corn.

Dinner ended up being a green smoothie.  I wasn’t feeling a big meal, so that worked out well.  Then I got cold and crawled into bed with a heating pad wrapped around my feet.  Long story.

This morning I made a double batch of smoothie.  I drank half when I got to work and packed the other half in a thermos and stuck in the fridge at work, just in case.

2 cups water, 2 bananas, 1 cup of frozen mixed berries, and spinach until no more fit.

Lunch was a 3-tiered bento of awesome.  Tier 1 – veggie snacks.  Tier 2 – tofu stir fry.  Tier 3 – cabbage and kale slaw salad thingy with the lemon/hemp dressing I made before.

tofu was a dry stir fry with red onion, orange bell pepper, asparagus, and broccoli.  Add some Bragg's Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce) and done!  Add 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice, and you're full for hours.  Promise.

Side note.  S gave me hell on Facebook for having a plastic fork.  I AM SORRY.  I forgot to pack either my fork or chopsticks, so it was either use a plastic fork from work or eat with my hands.

Dinner ended up being wicked late at the office, so it’s a good thing I had a cold smoothie just waiting for me.  That was dinner.

Two points for me actually being prepared today!

FITNESS

I did a workout DVD yesterday.  I didn’t make it to the group run at the ocean front.  I just couldn’t make myself set an alarm on another weekend day – especially since I know I’m in for a heck of a rough week this week.  I decided that if I woke up on my own in plenty of time, I’d go.  If not – I’d do something else.  It was a something else kind of day.

LIFE

Yesterday D and I went to the movies!  If you know me, we’re a big movie loving family.  We quote them constantly, and I have a memory about actors that rivals IMDB.  So yesterday was a happy day.

We saw Django Unchained, which was just awesome.  People are either Quentin Tarantino fans or they’re not.  Thankfully, both D and I are.  I won’t go into any big movie review, but if you like Quentin Tarantino flicks (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, etc.), you’ll enjoy this.  If not…well….then skip it I suppose.

Today was back to work.  It’s funny though, I woke up this morning quite excited about it being Monday and going to the office.  Not that I ever don’t like what I do, but thought it was a weird feeling for an early Monday morning.  Oh well, I’m going to roll with it.

It was a 10 hour day and I have a billion things to do (though we all do, so it’s not like I’m special or anything…well…I am, but not because of my to do list).  I didn’t get everything on my list done by a long shot, but I did get everything on my “can’t go home until it’s done Monday” things done.  Which is probably why I was there until 630.

I swung by the pool to see D and to watch R swim for a bit, and then came home to make them dinner.

Now…I plan to be asleep in an hour, so Happy Monday!  Hope you had a good one 🙂
