Friday Dance & Hot Breakfast!

Friday, June 21, 2013

We made it to Friday! Woo hoo! Dance dance dance!

Yesterday I ended up having to work through lunch, and I got a grilled chicken buffalo salad to eat from the café on the fly (with no cheese, just veggies, and fat free honey mustard dressing instead of the boats of ranch/blue cheese everyone else was getting). BF and I went for a long hike after work, here is an artsy picture I took on the move:

Have you ever just worn the WRONG clothes for a workout? Last night my shorts kept riding up, my shirt kept riding up, I had chafing (sorry TMI) and my socks were ALL wrong and now I have blisters. It was awful! But I stuck with it and followed through to the end.

BF had been asking for a “Meat/Potato/Veggie” meal for a while. I finally caved and got him this premade roast thing. As I was cooking it last night I started losing my mind about it – it had so much fat on it and I swear there was this layer of grease all around it. It wasn’t like I was afraid to eat it – the darn thing just looked REALLY unappetizing to me. I took two bites out of it and couldn’t bring myself to eat the rest, so I added extra broccoli to my plate. We both had a glass of white wine with dinner. Man did it make me sleepy! BF expressed concerns that I didn’t want to eat something because of my food issues, I explained that it just didn’t appeal to me at all, I didn’t like it, so why force myself to eat it? I wasn’t restricting myself, rather I just wasn’t going to stuff something in my face that grossed me out. Not a bad thing, right?!

This morning I made myself my first hot breakfast at home – ever. I usually don’t trust my half-awake self near flames in the mornings but I had an avocado that was going to go bad, so I made myself this fancy egg beater/bacon/avo/salsa breakfast:

It was alright. I think if I had added some hot sauce I would have been happier. Noted for next time. I rode to work with the sunroof open – it is GORGEOUS again today! I really want to walk at lunch but I’m a bit worried about the blisters that I already have. We shall see. I know I need it!

Today is also the First Day of Summer AKA “National Wear Your Lilly Day”! Everyone says I should post close up pictures more often, so I’m listening. Here is me in my Lilly choice of the day:

Not sure why my hair looks blondish? Weird. I am a brunette!

BF and I are going to our nice dinner after work tonight. Tomorrow we are going to the pool and seeing some friends. Sunday I am going to National’s Stadium and rooting for the Rockies for the second year in a row. It is such a pain to get there, I usually drag my feet going anywhere near DC, but BF’s dad gave us good free tickets so we’re in for some baseball. I feel like I’m cheating on my O’s but only a little bit since I’m not rooting for the Nats. We went to this match up last year and I was the ONLY person in the stadium cheering for the Rockies in purple and black. At least I know that going into this time! As well as prepped for the abundance of bad for you and ridiculously EXPENSIVE food. Packin’ snacks!

Anyways, I have gotten 5 Walks in this week (potentially 6 today). Stuck to my packed foods except for yesterday’s mini diversion which I think I kept mostly on track. My weight has been up and down this week and I can’t really tell why but I’m hoping this all results in some progress. Right now I’m just thrilled that it is Friday & the weekend! ENJOY!

    love the artsy photo and your closeup! emoticon

    that bfast looks soo good! surprised it was just alright. and props to you, i do NOT have time to cook anything in the morning before I leave for work, and I refuse to get up earlier than 6. I have a hard enough time preparing my lunch, esp if includes chopping up veggies or what not.

    You're totally okay to not eat something if your not feeling it. Oh well!

    Have fun down in my neck of the woods on Sunday, glad to hear your bringing snacks to the game, good idea!!

    I think you made the right choice abstaining from the roast. You would have totally felt worse physically and likely emotionally/mentally if you had given in and eaten it.

    Your breakfast has my stomach growling. It looks so tasty. What a treat it must have been this morning.

    Have fun at your game!
