I have always sort of prided myself on not being one of those women that blames their bad behavior on "that time of the month" but seriously this last week I feel like a totally different person. I have been miserable, moody and picking fights with Joe left and right. I am not a fan. Just last night I found myself angry for something that really wasn't a big deal & my rational brain knew it was stupid but I just kept pressing the issue. I must have apologized 3 times then went right back to forcing the issue. I'm trying to get it under control but seriously I feel like I'm possessed.
But back to the task at hand...finishing this 40 day challenge, only 15 days left. The bananas are finally ripe so I made protein shakes for breakfast. I decided to try out the PB2 in them this time, I added 2 tablespoons (1 serving) to my normal mix of powder, banana, ice & milk = 369 calories. It didn't really taste overly peanut buttery but I do think the shake was smoother. I'll have to add another 2 tablespoons next time.
One of our vendors brought in lunch as a holiday treat! It was a sandwich tray from The Cheese Board with all the fixins and cookies from Crazy Susan's! I was not about to pass up one of those cookies (I picked a turtle (chocolate chip cashew cookie topped with carmel & chocolate) so I made sure to behave when making up my plate. When I was tracking everything later I found it very funny that my actual lunch was 334 calories & that cookie was 400 calories (but so worth it)!When I returned to my desk I was pleasantly surprised to find a package waiting from one of my coworkers. She works in the department that I most often support & is really kind of my career idol. She sent me a personaized mug with homemade hot chocolate mix & a sweet card. It really made my day.
It started snowing sometime during the afternoon (I don't have a window so I forget about the weather pretty often). I can't believe I didn't take any pictures but it wasn't too bad, like maybe an inch. I met Amanda at the gym to take the tortuous cardio kick class. Only 4 people showed up so she really kicked our butts! We decided to head over to Bonefish after our workout for dinner. We had a nice time chatting about everything under the sun but knew we should head home early because of the weather.
I had a winter white cosmopolitan = 220 calories.
I had the Lily's Chicken for my entree = 418 calories.
I finished out the night addressing xmas cards & trying to not pick any more fights with Joe...
