Hi friends! In case you were wondering, Indiana is still an intolerable frozen tundra/pretty winter wonderland (depending on if you’re a glass-half-full or glass-half-empty type person. Personally, I would hop on the next plane to Florida if I just had that darn trust fund).
This was the scene outside my work window today:
We left work at 3:30..thanks, snow! I’m sorry I said mean things about you.
I made it to the gym, but was NOT feeling it. You know when that happens? I did a half-hearted 2.5 miles, but my legs kind of felt like lead. I think my body is just in shock from the exercise I’m giving it as opposed to the abundance of Doritos and beer it received over the holidays.
But that’s ok, because you never regret a workout! That’s one of Caitlin’s mantras, and it’s really true. Once it’s over, you’re glad you did it, even if it wasn’t the best one ever. It works every time in getting me to the gym (ok, not EVERY time).
I was on my way home from Target tonight, and I heard THE most disturbing remix of Beyonce’s “Halo” and some kid singing “Walking on Sunshine”…huh? It didn’t even involve Beyonce. Whoever came up with that needs to find a new job and unfortunately, they didn’t do it soon enough because now it’s running through my mind as I type. Aaaah!
Speaking of Target, look what greeted me as soon as I walked in the door:
Before my depressing Target trip, I made dinner:
Yep, that’s OATMEAL you’re staring at! But it’s not just any oatmeal….it’s savory mushroom oats! I have been scared to try “savory oatmeal” as opposed to sweet, but tonight I decided to give it a go. The ingredients:
–1/2 cup oats
–1 cup water
–1 egg (I ditched some of the yolk…I need to just buy some egg whites)
–A couple dashes of sea salt
All of that went in the bowl. Then I microwaved for two minutes, stirred, and cooked another minuted. Then I topped with more soy sauce and ate! My sister had some and gave it her seal of approval:
And for some reason, my sweet tooth has been out of control lately:
That’s a small bowl of peppermint ice cream with the somewhat random addition of miniature M&Ms and a Reese’s peanut butter cup. SO good, and as usual, I’m fighting the urge to go back for more. We’ll see how that turns out.
My dog is currently trying to climb on top of my TV stand because he’s so bored. I’m gonna go take care of that situation.
