I'm so excited for this 4 day week! I can't wait to have 2 whole days off from working to celebrate! Plus we're having all kinds of luncheons at work this week, it's definitely going to make it hard to get a lot of work done but will be oh so much fun! People have already started bringing in gifts, I'm going to have to pack my stuff up for tomorrow maybe.
I had some cinnamon toast crunch & a banana for breakfast. I'm steadily becoming more of a cereal girl, it's just so quick & easy to eat. My mom never let us have sugary cereal when we were growing up so I just stopped eating it all together.I wore one of my gradmother's necklaces to work today & was getting a lot of compliments on it. I couldn't remember where she got it so I texted my mom & dad to see if they knew. Apparently it's a Zuni fetish necklace, they're made by the Zuni Indians, all the little animals are hand carved from stone and represent different things like wisdom, long life, etc & they are as my mom put it "worth a small fortune." Guess I'll have to make sure this one stays safe.
I wasn't really hungry when lunch time rolled around but decided to go anyway, I had my standard yogurt, fruit cup & snack. We got into a conversation about a new place by the Shore Mall, Jalapenos & Salads, Dee had gone for dinner the other night & really enjoyed it. I looked over the menu and there are lots of healthy options. Now I wish I lived back in Heather Croft again, it would be right around the corner.
Instead of the orange I had packed for snack I indulged in one of the cookies a vendor had sent over. It was so good & totally worth the calories. I've been hoarding the kinds I like in my desk but not eating them so I decided now was as good a time as any.
After work it was time for group power, I had a nice time with Christina & Amanda, I really wish we got together more when we weren't sweating but everyone's scehdules are just too crazy. The workout was good, the release we've been doing is a tough one.
Joe was planning to meet some friends at The Library for Monday Night Football and I thought I might go meet them for dinner since I wasn't really feeling the leftover pizza in the fridge. Unfortunately, Joe wasn't going to be able to get there until close to 8 and I didn't want to hang in my car for the extra hour waiting. I was talking to Nicole while getting gas about eating something healthy & she mentioned what a bummer it was that Saladworks had closed...then it hit me...I could go to the place we were talking about at lunch!
It really is very similar to Saladworks; it looks pretty much the same inside but also has mexican food available like tacos & burritos. I got a greek salad with grilled chicken, it was huge!
I was a little disappointed at the amount of tomato in it though. I have no problem eating tomato but this was just overkill. Look how many were left when I finished eating!
While I was finishing up my salad Nicole & Jack came over to borrow my crock pot or at least that was their excuse...I think they just wanted to hang out with me and the cats. It was a lovely visit; we don't hang out as much as we'd like because by the time I get home from the gym and eat it's almost Jack's bedtime. Here is Jack being attacked by a hippo, lol.
