Back in the ‘Nati
I’m home safe and sound! As I sit at the kitchen table writing this, my body is already relaxing. The tension in my shoulders is melting. The knot in my stomach is gone. With the puppers roaming around me, I am home, and I am happy!
Today started off a bit gloomy. It was gray and dismal outside when I walked to the gym. My workout was less than stellar. I could tell that my body was completely worn out, so I took it easy on the elliptical, did a few ab workouts and then headed back to the house.
As I walked home the sun started to peek through the clouds. That’s all I needed to feel less sluggish! I came home and immediately made breakfast.
Today’s eats are a mish-mash. I’ve been trying to use everything in the fridge, and you’ll be able to tell. What’s the best way to use a half-full container of blueberries and 10 strawberries? A smoothie, minus the moo (used a bit of soy milk and protein powder with the berries). I could never have only a smoothie, so a slightly burnt waffle with peanut butter balanced things:
And because it was pretty…
I’m not much of a smoothie gal. As I was slurping this I wished I would have just eaten the berries whole. The waffle, however, was spectacular.
After breakfast I showered, cleaned dishes and packed. This took me forever! I just stood in my room, staring at the clothing I had placed on the bed. “I have no idea what I’ll want to wear next Tuesday! What do I pack?” I always have this internal struggle when I pack. Tough, right?
The smoothie held me over horribly, and I was ready for lunch by the time I had finished packing. Uhh, it was very thrown together. You are about to see the last remnants of my fridge:
There was no way I was going to dirty a plate for that– hope you don’t mind 🙂 To round this snackadellic lunch, I found this and gave the fakeness a whirl:
This is the best flavor I’ve tried. The sweetness doesn’t make you scrunch your face, and the banana flavor is strong. However, by the time I had finished 2/3 of this, I no longer could taste any flavor. It was just sweetness. I think I’m finished experimenting with these. (Then again, I can’t resist when they’re $.50. We’ll see…)
Muffin picked me up, we packed the car and drove right outta town. The car ride flew by. We abandoned our Arby’s ways and pineapple replaced the curly fries today. I prefer the pineapple. OH! Also on the way home I got a call from my agency. I am “on hold” for the Five Star modeling job! This means that I have to make sure I am available the days of the shoot. I’m not officially “booked” yet, but the other times I’ve experienced being “on hold,” it’s led to getting the job. This is another thing I’m excited about, but can’t be too excited in case I don’t get it.
I’m just chillin’ at home now, snacking on a sesame bun and cucumber with hummus (no picture). Tonight will probably go like this: meet MamaJ at her work to visit for a bit, get dinner somewhere, come home, watch T.V (yessss), fall asleep before 10 p.m. I hope. Let the mindlessness begin… Much love.
Ciao for now,
