how obnoxious is that picture? obviously i went a tad to heavy on the bronzer this morning. when your co-worker tells you your tan looks great & you didn’t step foot on the beach all weekend, it’s a sure fire sign you put your face on in the dark this morning...
i don’t know about you guys but getting myself motivated to workout on mondays after a sunday rest day is not and i repeat not easy.
it’s a good thing i have spin scheduled or else i don’t think i’d ever make it.
spin was beastly, post workout snack was yummy, home made iced cawfs en route to work was a wallet friendly lifesaver
2 egg white puff with cinnamon, stevia & calorie free chocolate syrup
i love little straws. i take them from dunkin all the time and use them as real straws. it helps me savor each delectable sip
as soon as i got to work i had breakfast on the mind, en route to my desk i got smacked in the face with a big shiny rock! breakfast was put on hold while my coworker told me the romantic story of how her boyfriend popped the question on their vacation last week.
shiny diamonds > cookie dough oats?
don’t. think. so.
i hate office lighting. it just doesn’t give my peanut butter & jelly smothered oatmeal justice.
the morning crept and crept and crept by just like mondays always do and when 1pm rolled around i wasn’t even hungry, just bored and so i broke into lunch
shooka shooka shooka!
it’s how i shake my salad up after assemblage to make sure the goods are dispersed equally within the bowl
in the mix:
- broccoli slaw & romaine
- green peppers
- hard boiled egg
- a few slices of lightlife deli pepperoni
- laughing cow wedge
- spicy mustard & balsamic vinegar blend
one would have hoped that the afternoon would go faster then the morning? nerp. but atleast i had fresh bloobs & beezies along with an almond face to keep me busy!
the bloobs & beezies to keep me sane at work and the almonds to keep me from hangry driving road rage.
i tell ya both seem to do the trick
so everyday i drive home from work i see this sign
my entire life up until this day, this day at 5:25pm. i had no idea what that said. everyday i would try and figure it out.
“what the heck does that mean!” i would say to myself
forget. about. it. fuhgeddaboudit. duh. julie.
it was an epic moment in my life. so epic that the mercedes in front of me almost felt it’s epickness. i guess i have good breaks.
all that thinking about the “leaving brooklyn” sign left me no time to think about dinner
thank heaven i froze the remainder of the turkey burgers, and thank the good lord above that our crisper was stocked to the maximus with veggiz
snack plates make the world go round, don’t cha think?
obviously the veggies were used for stacking purposes. ie: shroom, tzatziki, pepper, burger piece, mater, shroom. insert into mouth.
i also enjoyed a few rosemary 34-degree crispbread crackers on the side
34-degree crispbread crackers are all natural light and crispy think crackers that are great to pair with cheeses & dips.
tonight we cracked into the rosemary box and hot dang was it a burst of rosemary flavor. upon first bite deej even shouted out “these are awesome!” agreed, deej. agreed.
they have an incredible amount of flavor, and i could imagine the flavor pairing suggestions would be the perfect combination. some of the suggested parings for the rosemary flavor are herbed goat cheese (yes puhlease!), chicken salads, & hummus!
i concluded the evening with a square straight from heaven
& now i’m falling asleep to the sound of rrrrrroberto''s voice. hey if ali doesn’t want him, then i’ll definitely take him!
