Happy Thursday all! I kept forgetting all day today that it was Thursday, each time I was reminded I couldn't help but smile, thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! It's been such a long week! It's been fairly busy at work the past couple of weeks, and there's some drama going on...it's making for an even more less than desirable work experience. I have a pretty packed weekend lined up. Tomorrow night I have to babysit for a couple of hours and then I’ll be spending the evening with my guy friend. Saturday consists of going to see Cowboys and Aliens (don’t laugh, I’m super pumped) and then babysitting for the family that I don’t really care for babysitting for. Unfortunately they got to me before my main family did otherwise I would’ve just babysat for my main family, however I’m really not in the position to turn down ANY babysitting gig. Hopefully Sunday will allow for a bike ride, but I’m hearing rain is in the forecast…
I started off my day with the usual (can you guess?):
I had my last two pieces of bacon today, I don't what I'm going to do for tomorrow!!!
Below is what I packed for my snacks and lunch:
Today I had the usual Honey Nut Chex but switched things up and brought a banana to have with it. My morning snack was a corn muffin toastie, which yes, has gluten. I’m not sure why I bought them, I think the “corn” threw me off? Or I just wasn’t thinking, but I’m ok with this being the only gluten I have for the day, because they make a pretty darn tasty mid morning snack. I brought a cheese stick and these GF “cracklebread” crackers and some peanut butter to put on them. I was a little skeptical on them, because they have a weird texture visually, but they were really good and the PB was a great touch for them.
I had a quesadilla again tonight, actually I had exactly what I had last night, so instead of posting that picture again, I took a pic of me cooking it so you could see what it looks like…
Forgive my crappy BlackBerry camera, you can see I put chicken in it today. Cheese and onions as well. Today I tried microwaving it because I was being lazy, and it was kind of soggy so I ended up putting it in a skillet anyway. Hah.
After dinner I took a 45 minute nap. I knew I needed to ride my bike today, but for some reason I was so exhausted. I had to rest my eyes.
I woke up with the alarm and went for my bike ride (success!). It was a great bike ride for me, I was going for speed and I have to say I succeeded. My average speed today was 13.8 MPH, usually it’s around 12. This ride usually takes me around an hour, give or take five minutes and I did it in 48 minutes today.
I’ve gotten quite a bit of good mail this week! Mostly coupons for free loot (including a ton of e-mail birthday coupons), but also an early birthday card and some swap-bot goodies (not pictured):
I LOVE good mail!
It’s been a quiet evening and I’m totally sucked into Big Brother. I mean how annoying is Rachel? Seriously? And her boyfriend? I’ve never seen a bigger sap than him. I mean, they’re possibly going to be separated for a few weeks and they’re acting like one of them has a terminal illness. Gag me. I also can’t get over the amount of silicone in that house and Julie’s hair is pretty epic tonight…not really in a good way.
Hope everyone is having a great night!
