(To the tune of Kelly Clarkson’s “Miss Independent,” FYI)
To kick my own arse out of its meh state yesterday, I did this last night…
Is there anything a bookstore, decaf coffee, Cinnamon Chip Scone and an US Weekly can’t fix? I think no.
When I woke up this morning from a glorious 9 hour sleep, I reluctantly threw on my hot black spandex, black Old Navy Performance fleece and running shoes for a 3 mile run. And I am so glad I did.
With post-run renewed energy, I scarfed this down. I am talking maybe 3 1/2 minutes fast.
That would be a phallic-looking banana with Mighty Maple PB alongside a bowl of Kashi Honey Sunshine + organic skim milk. Whoever recommended eating slow obviously doesn’t know me.
When I got to work, I barely even looked at blogs (usually a morning ritual) and set to work. Before I knew it, it was past noon – ahem, LUNCHTIME!
There are a bunch of food carts downtown where I work, and the cutest one is Dandelion. It also happens to be vegetarian/vegan-friendly. I believe the sign says, “Vegan questions? You’ll like our answers.” I know this girl will.
Enter in The Infamous Sweet Potato Wrap.
Huge chunks of sweet potato, cilantro pesto and Dutch gouda cheese (other things too, but I was so busy scarfing I didn’t take note). BEST. WRAP. EVER. It pains me to think I only just discovered this gem and today was it’s last day of the season.
The cart guy even gave me a free homemade peanut butter cup. I am pretty sure it’s because I wowed him with my NKOTB dance moves and rendition of “The Right Stuff.”
And you probably think I am kidding about dancing to NKOTB in the middle of the street. I’m not.
<Enter in more productivity here>
I rounded out my meal with a Diet Coke. Perfection.
After work and receiving some exciting e-mails (mu ha ha, now I am going to be the one withholding exciting news!), I ate a haphazardly concocted, yet well-balanced meal. Here’s what we got kids:
Protein: Sunshine Barbecue Patty w/ BBQ Sauce
Grain: Mary’s Gone Crackers – Onion Flavor
Veggie: 1 cup baby carrots
Fruit: 2 Archer Farms Organic Raspberry Fruit Strips
Not too shabby.
Then, I went to a job interview for a part-time seasonal position at a chic home decorating store. Meet the newest sales associate ready to pimp out floral arrangements, pillows, furniture, candles, kitchenware and more (ahem, ME!).
Apparently they were looking for someone outgoing and willing to talk to customers, and I happened to fit the bill.
Now, it’s time to watch last night’s Glee episode and turn the tables on productivity. One should maintain balance in one’s life, no? FIrst however,
