Why yes that is a picture of me in a bathroom...

I didn't like any of the (4) pictures we took of my outfit Wednesday morning so I decided to see if the bathroom at work was long enough to fit my whole body.  It is!  I realize it's not the most fantastic of pictures but it's SO much better then the others.  I decided to wear one of the new dresses I got at Ann Taylor Loft on Sunday, I can't find it on their website anymore but the sleeves have a lace patch which is kind of different.  I paired it with opaque brown tights and brown Naturalizer boots.  I'm also wearing a sort of funky gold necklace that you can't really see and my awesome badge for work (it's so annoying how it totally ruins my style every day).
Now let's rewind back to before I left the house.  For breakfast I had a bowl of oatmeal w/banana = 321 calories.  Funny story, the other day Nicole was looking for something new to make Jack for breakfast and thought, "I'll make him some oatmeal".  When she got to her cabinet she realized she didn't have any but assumed she did because she'd been seeing it on my blog so often, lol.
Work was uneventful.  Everyone is still getting used to the new set up & preparing for the second round of moves.  It's going to be so weird, I'll be separated from pretty much every person I've been sitting near since I started here a year and a 1/2 ago. 

I had my usual lunch except that we are out of 100 calorie candy bars so I had to switch back to cookies, blah.  When I went to get my lunch from the fridge my boss and another coworker were eating so I joined them, unfortunately they left for a meeting a few minutes later so I grabbed what was left and headed back to my desk.
Angela and I had a 4 mile run scheduled for after work.  The weather forecast was for rain so we were on the fence about where we'd be running.  After looking at the radar I decided we should go for it and run outside.  Well that all changed when I walked out of work, it was a little chillier then I expected and there was total cloud cover.  I picked up my phone and texted Angela to meet me at the gym instead and as I pulled out of the parking lot a light rain started.  When I went to the locker room to get changed I noticed I didn't have any socks in my bag!  I texted Angela about my problem but she was already on her way; then I remembered there's store right next to the gym called Sammy's Sock Outlet, lol.  I crossed my fingers they'd still be open and ran to my car to grab my wallet.  I was in luck they were open until 6!  I purchased a 3 pack of athletic style socks for $3 & now I have 2 pairs of back up in case I ever forget again.  It was pretty hot in the gym and the run really just kicked my ass, it was hard, I wanted to quit.  But I persevered and managed an 11 min per mile time.  Bottle of low calorie Gatorade = 45 calories.
Joe was scheduled out of work at 6pm and told me he was going to make grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner.  I was surprised to see that he wasn't home when I got there around 6:45.  No worries I was sure he'd be home soon so I changed and went to visit Nicole since I wasn't in charge of dinner.  Time ticked by and still no Joe, turns out he was stuck at work with a customer.  I was fine with waiting for him to get home to eat but this plate of pasta magically appeared in front of me while Lou & Nicole were sitting down to dinner = 379 calories.  They had plenty left over and since we were coming up on 8pm it was decided that Joe would just eat at their place too.
I should really eat tiny portions more often because it left room for Rita's!  The boys aren't huge fans of water ice and told us to enjoy while they stayed home.  We decided to surprise them and stopped at the Custard Hut to get them ice cream before going to Rita's for ourselves.  I really wish I would have taken some pictures but it would have been too obvious, these teenage girls at the ice cream place were so, I don't know, poorly behaved...I totally sound like a old person but we couldn't believe the way they were acting, like kicking the boys they were with and such.  I'm not saying I never acted that way but definitely not in front of adults.  Anyway, I got a chocolate soft serve & sugar free cherry ice gelati = 305 calories.
We got back to the house and gave the boys their ice cream, they were less thankful then we'd hoped but oh well.  Joe & I hung out until just after 9 then headed home after all we hadn't been there all night.  We went straight up to bed and were asleep in no time.

  1. All I can say is "I know!!!". I've told Rob he needs to let me know a few days in advance when I need to plan a trip to Rita's because what I get is 390 calories! Eek!
