Catch up

Sorry I was MIA this weekend…

I stayed pretty busy.

My 8.5 hour workday Saturday turned into 12 hours.  That’s one of the bad things about my job.  It’s open 24 hours a day, so if someone calls out for the following shift, someone has to stay and that someone was me.  By the time I got home I made my lunch for tomorrow and went to bed.

Sunday, I just had a day.  After working 12 hours on Saturday I had to turn and be there Sunday morning.  It wasn’t much of a weekend.

And here we are on Monday.  It’s really my Saturday.  I wasn’t feeling too great and spent most of the day on the couch.  Blah! 

I wasn’t too hungry, but was definitely thirsty and knew a green monster would do the trick.

A green monster makes everything better

As you can from my posts I have fallen in love with green monsters.  I have one everyday.  I haven’t really tried experimenting with different flavors, I’ve been thinking about what might be good in one.  I’ve pretty much stayed with the banana and peanut butter, but also use frozen mixed berries. 

I took about a 2 hour nap in the late morning, and it was just what I needed.  I love naps.

For lunch

Tuna sandwich and brown rice crisp chips

I don’t have tuna a lot, but it’s a very easy go to lunch.  I mixed 1/4 cup tuna with 1 tbs mayo, pepper relish, onions, mustard, and pepper.  Yum!  I had it on an english muffin.  My brown rice chips are running low as you can tell by the crumbs on my plate 😦

I was missing Justine while she was at school today.  She is such a good daughter.  Sometimes I feel like I don’t give her as much attention as I would like to.  She never complains when I have to work late, or when I need to do homework.  So for a little treat I decided I was going to get Domino’s pizza for dinner.  When I told her we were picking up pizza she asked me why.  I told her I just didn’t feel like cooking.  Why you don’t want any I asked.  She replied “Yes, I do. It’s just I’m usually the one who says it.”

Bacon and onion pizza with a breadstick... times this plate by 2

I didn’t really feel bad for having pizza today being that I didn’t eat too much throughout the day.  I also logged it onto my weight watchers log.

Straberry pretzel salad

My mom sent me home with this strawberry pretzel salad. It looks like a mess, but it is so good.  There is strawberry jello, strawberries, a cream cheese mixture, and pretzels with brown sugar on them.  The best part about this desert is that it gives you a reason to eat it all.  If you wait too long the pretzels get soggy, so it’s better to eat it all up soon after you get it.

And the best part of today is that I weighed myself this morning and I was down 1.6 pounds.  It doesn’t seem like all that much, but I’ll take anything right now, especially since I haven’t gotten my exercise mojo back just yet.

I’ll leave you with a funny story.  Saturday night my alarm went off and I jumped out of bed, cut my alarms off, and got in the shower.  I couldn’t believe how tired I was, but I slowly started to wake up.   I got out of the shower and looked at the clock and realized it was only 1248, I don’t have to get up until 4:30.  Justine had left her little timer in my room and it went off in the middle of the night.  I did get back to sleep, and the timer was thrown out of my room.

    Every time I see a Green Monster on your blog I’m reminded that I need to buy some spinach! Good for you for making them a part of your day (every day!)
