It gets a little better everyday, or so I try to tell myself.
As I try to finish up the little bits of leftovers I have around my house I decided that breakfast would have to have a little pumpkin in it. I had a sample of Coach’s Oats to use… so with that I made my first ever pumpkin oatmeal. I tossed in a few glazed walnuts and a little pumpkin pie spice. It was quite good, quite filling, and quite what I needed to start off my day.
After dropping Justine off at school I did a much better job of going to Curves and actually working out. I got a pretty good work out in for a little over 30 mins. I’ll be adding in my treadmill runs, and my 30 day Shred, but thought I would add them back in slowly and not feel like I have to do everything all at once.
I’ve been on a mission to keep myself moving. I could easily get lost in the corner of my couch with my blanket, pillow, and remote so I can access all my dvr recordings, but of course, I can’t do that. I still have a home to take care of, a daughter to love, and I still have to live. So I managed to do a few things like straighten up the living room getting it ready for the Christmas tree. I did some laundry, and cooked some dinner, dishes soon followed.
For lunch I had a third of this yummy, but easy frozen California BBq Chicken Pizza.
There have been a few times that I have broken down and cried through out the day. Not for any particular reason, just because I’m hurting. I wish there was a magic wand that i could wave that would take all this pain away. But I know there’s no magic wand, there’s really no magic pill, there’s me. I have to dig myself out of this dark place and back into the light. I’m sure I’ll learn so much about myself throughout this time, and I’m sure I’ll come out so much stronger than before.
I did make myself some dinner before I had to head into work. I might not be making the most creative things, or even the healthiest, but it’s a start.
I had these Gorton’s frozen shrimp
I roasted some acorn squash, and heated up some Uncle Ben’s Cajun rice and my meal was set.
For a little somethin to munch on while I was at work I brought some plain greek yogurt, blueberries, a little coconut, white choco chips, and almond slivers. That is one of my favorite snacks right now. It has so many flavor combinations.
And for dessert…. two of Mama Pea’s Peanut butter cookie dough balls.
I’m looking forward to my two days off… even though it’s Tuesday, it’s my Friday. Woot woot!
And can I just tell you… the goods are starting to be dropped off in our office our ready. As everyone was chomping down on chocolate chip cookies, I passed knowing I had better cookies for later. A year ago I would have probably had a few of these cookies, and a few of those cookies…. that’s something to be proud of right?
