I give myself a D for this week’s what I ate Wednesday. There’s hardly a green in sight from yesterday’s meals. My excuse? Life got in the way. I had to get a new computer yesterday from the main office in Connecticut, an hour and 45 minutes away and between that commute and happy hour with coworker friends, greens weren’t a priority. Wine and socializing was.
Overnight oats, even though I just said how I wasn’t a huge fan of them. Sometimes convenience wins out. Mounds of coconut butter on top also make anything more delicious. Also, coffee and lots of it. The drive to the main office during rush hour is infuriating. It’s mostly one lane back roads because there is no good highway that goes diagonally through the state of Connecticut and without fail I get stuck behind a school bus, a garbage truck or a tractor trailer every single time going 30 mph at best. If the post office incident wasn’t telling enough, I lose my patience easily in situations like this. Coffee and 80s Madonna on the radio help.
Here’s the only green of the day in the form of a granny smith apple, sprouts and cucumbers. That’s a teriyaki salmon sandwich with wasabi, sprouts and cucumber on whole wheat. Not bad, not terribly delicious either.
I also drank an insane amount of water between lunch and 5pm because the office was 79 degrees inside. I think it’s kind of funny that I work for a company that consults on college’s facilities operations and we can’t even get our office temperature figured out.
Does spinach in a cheddar cheese fondue count towards the green tally? If so, maybe I should change my grade to a C because I definitely had my fair share of that. We went to an awesome wine bar/restaurant, enjoyed a couple glasses of wine, fondue and a bacon, chicken gorgonzola flatbread for dinner.
Can we be real for a minute? I honestly had anxiety over yesterday. I wasn’t going to be home in my routine where I can workout or cook something during my lunch break, wear spandex instead of office appropriate clothes and actually have to talk to humans instead of my dog. How sad is that? I know.
Guess what, the world didn’t end because I couldn’t cook anything yesterday, had to take a rest day from working out, put on makeup, real clothes and actually wore my wedding rings. In fact, I had the best damn time I’ve had in awhile in the 2 hours of happy hour/dinner actually talking to real people, people I like and enjoying life out from behind the computer screen. Also, anything that gives me 3 hours of radio time and the ability to sing True Blue (baby I love you….) at the top of my lungs is worth it.
I need to get out more often.
Do you get thrown off when your schedule is interrupted or are you a go with the flow type?
