This morning I had savory oats consisting of
- steel cut oats
- an egg
- 2 links of morning star farms sausage
- tabasco sauce
- paprika and pepper
After I prepared this I went to put my contacts in and learned a very important lesson about eyes and Tabasco sauce. Let’s just say my eye rejected the contact forcibly. Haha! I really didn’t think I had touched the Tabasco, but I’m hoping that’s the problem, since I want to wear my contacts tomorrow.
I worked out at the gym at lunch. I’m trying to keep my spirits up about exercise. I feel like I should do more, like run outside, lift weights, do yoga, and everything else, but I also haven’t figured out how to incorporate it into my life. It can happen, I just have to do it and it will become a habit.
For lunch I had leftover “mom’s vegetarian lasagna”. I don’t know why I wrote that. Unnecessary quotation marks, much? At least I didn’t say “mom” or “vegetarian”, implying that neither are the real deal.
It was very tasty. Especially on a rainy cold day like today.
Out of the seasonal teas I’ve tried, I think gingerbread spice is the best. Sugar cookie is a little bland, but it smells good.
Toward the end of the day I ate some unpictured carrots, celery, hummus, and a few radish slices. My gums have been hurting so I thought I was going to give up the carrots today, but I started craving something around 4:30. My options were popcorn or veggies. Just in case you’re wondering, I had a filling last year between two of my back teeth that causes me problems sometimes. Most of the problems are caused by broccoli, carrots, apples (the skin), chicken, and beef. I blame the pot roast on this. My dentist said I should stop eating broccoli. I think he was joking. That was a long random story….
After work I went to the drugstore and grocery store. I found several deals, like a Buy One Get One free almond deal at the drugstore. Unfortunately my favorite flavor was out, so I tried something new. Wasabi Soy Sauce!
Let me sum up my feelings in two words: Paint Thinner! Maybe they’ll grow on me a little. I’ve already eaten a few. Now I’m off to rub my eyes. (kidding) Does anyone want the other container?
I also found some BOGO deals on MOJO bars, so I bought them, although they didn’t ring up as free at the register – don’t you hate that? I dislike having to point out pricing problems, but I hate losing money or feeling gypped.
TLC Honey Sesame Crackers.
Of course right when I declare we don’t keep crackers in the house I go out and buy some. There are myriad reasons for that, but I won’t go into that. Enough blabbing for today.
