Thank you all SO MUCH for your wonderful comments on yesterday’s post!
Not only was the support overwhelming, but many of you could relate to this dilemma. I will definitely be able to blog on the days I only have to work one job, but on the other days…we will see how that goes. If blogging paid the bills, we could all blog regularly + comment our buns off. However, as much as I’d like that to be true, it’s not. It’s easy to want to up readership, get more comments and grow your blog…heck, I do! But along with dreams, there’s got to be a healthy dose of reality.
As much as I would love to continue to babble on about my ultimate dream job, there is food to be had here – including a stellar bowl of Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal this morning!
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup water + 1/3 cup organic skim milk
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
drizzle of agave
cinnamon, nutmeg + ginger
1/8 cup dried cranberries
1 spoonful AB
After a couple days of not-so-stellar eating, I vowed to photograph everything I ate today and up my “roughage” intake (which Mama Everythingtarian recommended to get my digestive system back on track). So, I hit up my fave cafe for some salad bar action alongside a bag of BBQ PopChips…
If I remember correctly (which I probably don’t), my salad contained:
- broccoli salad
- green pepper
- 1 hardboiled egg
- 1/4 cup chickpeas
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- sunflower seeds
- cucumber yogurt dressing
Yes, I think that about covers it.
Snacktime included some chili lime almonds (TDF – to die for)…
…and by the way, I already have several ideas + titles of shows ready in case the Travel Channel calls. FYI.
My pre-workout snack was some homemade nonfat Greek yog + sliced naner + strawberry lavender honey jam. Twas’ delicious, due to the sophistication of that jam. It’s dang good.
After work, I hit up the gym for a 30-minute jaunt on the elliptical before heading to a 60-minute yoga class. Both were quite delightful, although I had a hard time concentrating in yoga class. For some reason, my monkey mind was swinging away, but I finally did scissors pose for the first time. Booyah.
Mine definitely did NOT look that good, however.
When I arrived home, I was STARVING. Enter in poor man’s grilled cheese:
I toasted a French Meadow hemp bagel, then put a couple slices of Wisconsin Aged Cheddar and popped it in the microwave. Welllll….I definitely overtimed that sucker because I ended up with lots of melty cheese on my plate. But I’m not complaining.
Now I am eating a plateful of brussel sprouts, going to go shower, make some more progress on my freelance writing project and get to bed a bit early tonight.
Thanks again for all the love.
Y’all are the best.
What is your dream job? Look above. If that doesn’t come true however, I would be more than happy to take over from Oprah or replace Casey Wilson on Saturday Night Live .
P.S. Do you guys like the small font or the new larger font better? Is it easier to read?
