So, I made my broccoli-cheddar soup last night, and here is the recipe:
As I mention in the description, I blanked and forgot the carrots...and I'm sad. But I'll live, right? Right.
Our new (temporary) roommate moved in some more of his stuff, and last night was his first night staying with us. So far, I'm impressed--he's polite, conversational, grateful to be helped (we gave him a dresser and cleaned out the room for him to use, and he was just SO thankful, it was so nice...), friendly...I think we'll get along just fine. He even asked me last night if it was okay to shower at his usual time, or if that would throw off my schedule!! Just...so considerate. I think this is going to work out...
Last night we all hung out and watched Game of Thrones and ordered pizzas...I did pretty well, loaded it with veggies and lean protein, came in at about 1400 calories for the day. Not terrible...but with everything going on, I'm still having a hard time fitting in workouts. I'm on practically opposite schedules with my bf at this point and stay up later to spend time with him...which means I'm literally just too tired to peel my sorry butt out of bed early enough for a morning workout...I'll figure this out. I have to. It's starting to get a little frustrating!
Worked out a lower payment with one loan company day before yesterday, but the two I called last night were all 'no, there's nothing we can do for you at all' or 'we can't find a solution for you that doesn't add like $1,000 onto your total owed...'
So, fingers crossed, we'll call the last two over the next couple of days, and see what we see...
I'm also going to stop and see one of my friends on the way home from work, and when I get home I'm going to throw together some spinach lasagna roll-ups to freeze so I can add some variety to my lunches.
One thing I have been doing really well on is water--I bring a 1-liter (64-oz, 8-cup) jug of green tea with me to work, and pledge to have it empty by the end of the day. Add in the coffee and whatever I have with dinner... :-)
AND I've been good about packing and eating a good, solid, healthy breakfast... I'm feeling good about my decisions and my abilities to make things work as best I can... I just feel so EXHAUSTED!!
Mixed emotions about Bath and Body not having me on the schedule yet...I think if there was one more thing I'd keel over, but I need the money.......
Friday is Relay for Life with my coworkers, Thursday will be baking for that... Hopefully, Saturday will be a little more relaxed... O_O
