at the drop of a hat.


Happy Monday!

My day was a bit more unproductive than I would have liked, mostly due to my own blonde moment.  I got to work and realized that my access badge and key for my desk drawers were both still sitting at home.  Not so helpful.  I could have gone home to get it…but I didn’t.

Breakfast was a green monster with the standard:  mixed berries, a banana, almond milk, a couple big handfuls of spinach, and chia seeds.

I got a lot of funny looks eating it at work.  Apparently putting spinach in a smoothie is weird?  Who knew!

When the offer of getting Thai takeout for lunch came up, I jumped at the chance.  I had drunken noodles with steamed tofu.

Thai food > yogurt and carrot sticks with hummus.  I had great intentions to eat only half.  That so did not happen!

After work, I had to head for an eye exam that I’ve been putting off for months.  I haven’t gone in two and a half years, so it was long overdue.  I was happy that my vision improved ever so slightly, but now trying to function with dilated pupils is not so enjoyable.  I know, common sense would say to get off the computer and it might help…but let’s be honest, that’s probably not going to happen.

Confession: I fully believe that chips and salsa are a perfectly acceptable dinner.

So, that was what I had tonight.  I bulked it up a bit with some refried beans and cheese.  Did you know vegan cheese doesn’t really melt?

I think I’ve neglected to post for Julie’s 25 Days of the Little Things for a few days.

It’s not so much there haven’t been those little things.  I just forget to write about them!  Today’s little thing is that I was able to wear sandals to work today thanks to the unseasonably warm(ish) weather.  It was in the 60s today, which for early November in Michigan is a heat wave!

In other news, I may have cried at the Hannah Montana series finale last night.  Blogging is a funny thing, that I would openly share something like that with the world.  It is actually probably not something I should admit, but in a space where I openly talk about the food I eat on a daily basis or my weight loss journey, I feel like admitting tears during a Disney Channel show is just the norm, especially when I cry at pretty much anything even slightly emotional.

Do you cry at the drop of a hat or do you keep it all inside?

    I’ll talk tears another day, but I have to comment on the green monsters. My co-workers don’t know what to think of them either. They ask, “You really DRINK spinach?” Too funny.

    I’m a big cry baby. When people meet me they wouldn’t expect that. I cry when I am happy, sad, nervous, overwhelmed. Its just the way I release my emotions. It stinks sometimes! I’m off to check out 25 Days of Little Things!

    Chips and salsa is perfectly acceptable for any meal in my book. That’s one of my favorite things ever, but I have such a hard time stopping once I get started!

    Mindy, I cry at the drop of a hat. I never knew that I was a wedding crier until a few weekends ago when I was at my friends’ wedding and found myself bawling. And I have to admit that I am also a Hannah Montana fan. So do not feel ashamed. It is fun to cry at such things. Cleanses the system (maybe).
