I woke up yesterday to thunderstorms and 37 degree weather. This morning? Foggy and 40. I need some Vitamin D! I never thought I was one of those people who got cranky without some sunlight, but this winter is sure taking a toll on me and Tony.
Breakfast was another piece of Chobani quiche with an apple on the side.
I had every intention of hitting up the pool at lunch, but when I went to check my blood sugar, it was 109. Perfect, but not high enough for me to work out. So I went to Mariano’s to accessorize my lunch. I had refried beans and leftover jerk chicken so I needed to pick up some tortillas to make tacos for lunch. Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to Mariano’s without checking out the cheese!
I picked up lunch for one of my co-workers – check out this sandwich!
I ended up picking up these new to me tortillas. I’ve never not liked a LaTortilla Factory tortilla. These are only 50 calories each and 4 grams of fiber – and they are a generous size too! Check out their recipe for Jamaican jerk chicken tacos – don’t these look amazing?!
Yummers! I LOVED these tortillas – they held together nicely and had a nice chew to them. Next time I’ll try making them into burritos and using them on the panini maker at work.
I called the restaurant around 4:15 to see how busy it was to see if I even needed to go in. Only the hostess was there, none of the managers yet, so she couldn’t make the call. When I got there I saw there was a party in the back, but it was buffet and only one server was assigned to it. Then I looked at the books FIVE RESERVATIONS and we had FOUR servers, two of which were full time servers. Once the manager got in about 20 minutes into my shift, I told him he should cut me so the full timers could make some money. He agreed! And just like that I was on my way home!
Only one problem. I had nothing planned for dinner. Tony usually makes himself pasta, or something like that. I realized I needed to get gas in my car, so when Tony said “how about picking up a pizza” I didn’t have to think twice! It was nice hanging out with Tony too!
Sausage and black olive pizza – I had one more plate like this – I asked for a side of hot giardiniera – so flipping spicy and good! No squirrel sightings – thank you very much!
So I have felt a bit uninspiring lately. Last summer from June to December I was ON. I made each day count, ditched the wine during the week, was exercising 60-90 minutes a day. But lately I have just been out of it. I feel like I am almost waiting for something but I have no idea what. When I was getting an insulin pen needle out of my diabetes bag yesterday, I reached into the bottom and found this note. It’s from Hannah and it’s probably been in there for a few years! I had forgotten I put it in there, but it was just the pick me up I needed.
So I am done waiting for things to happen, I just have to start making them happen. I need to update my Healthy for 2014 page on Facebook, and actually have something positive to write about. Who’s with me?
Since I didn’t work out at lunch and didn’t walk the restaurant floors, I didn’t make my 10,000 steps, but not bad for having a desk job!
