So, I’m sort of pissed at the groundhog. Does the groundhog ever not see his or her shadow???? It just seems like every single year that little rodent sees its shadow. But I don’t really feel like I can complain too much about winter this year. The groundhog gets a big “whatever” from me today.
Ok. Brief recap because I really need to go to bed in a serious way. (Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday. I don’t know if I could take another couple of days of the work week.)
I did not pre-set the coffee maker last night. So instead of my morning coffee, I had a Monster energy drink in the car this AM! Wow. It was pretty good. One of my good friends drinks Monsters and now I sort of get it. Yum. I still had one cup of coffee this morning – but I did half caf and half decaf. I still ❤ my morning coffee – but Monster is good on the days when you have not done all of your nightly prep.
Breakfast. Before I left the house I spread some of that amazing peanut butter:
(Can we PLEASE not discuss how much I love this stuff???) on a piece of whole wheat toast. I ate it on the drive to work. A great (but small) breakfast! At around 9 o’clock I had the remaining 1/3 of a peanut butter Larabar. Totally hit the spot. At 11:30 my stomach was making noise and it was embarrassing. So I ate a greek yogurt. At noon I went outside for a walk with Katherine and we quickly realized that it was windy, cold and raining. Awesome combo!! We gave up about two minutes into our walk. I certainly was not hungry for lunch since I had just consumed the filling greek yogurt, so I waited until 1:30 to heat up my lunch.
Lunch – left over pesto couscous with more grilled chicken breast. It smelled amazing:
I left work at 4:30 today and drove home. I had a little bit of down time at home before I went out to my extended family’s for dinner. I enjoyed the few minutes at home, relaxing. Yes, I took the day off from working out / running because I literally did not have time to get to the gym to run before I had to be at dinner – this was because I slept through my alarm or turned off my alarm this morning without realizing it, and I did not get out of the house until 7AM which pushed my entire day 40 minutes later than normal. Oh well. I guess I needed the sleep.
Dinner tonight was amazing. When I walked in the door I said, “Do I smell curry!?” Yes. Thankfully I did. I love curry. Dinner was phenomenal.
(Please pardon the shadow) I have GOT to get the recipe for this curry! I know the following things were in the curry: cauliflower, carrots, chicken and that is all I know. I had it over rice (I love rice) and I topped it with a fresh mango salsa, toasted coconut and a dab of greek yogurt. Holy goodness!!!! I am in love with this meal.
For dessert we had gluten free cookies and some amazing gelato in a few different flavors. I loved the mango and raspberry flavors. I had a spoonful of both and two cookies!
Ok. I’m done with this day. I’m in bed and hope to be sleeping momentarily. I will see y’all tomorrow!
