Hi yall! I have had a full day here, which is why it I am just now getting on to post! Do you guys ever have those days where it just seems like, no matter what, you can’t stop hurting yourself??!! That has been me today—burning, tripping, poking…I’m wondering what my problem is! And it is officially the start of pollen season–I cannot stop sneezing!!!
Anyways, this morning I started my day, yet again, with chobani and a quarter cup of my favorite muesli ever:
This great combo definitely kept me satisfied for the following 4 hours til it was breakfast-break time! Typical chocolate oatmeal:
Lunch was a treat because after bopping my nose so hard with a piece of frozen dough that I not only saw stars, but also rushed to the bathroom thinking I had a bloody nose (I didn’t but I have a huge lump that is going to turn black and blue soon), I thought I deserved something special. I had to go the Honda body shop anyways to get a heart attack estimate on my car (grr don’t want to talk about it!) and guess what was on the same street??! The Grass Root!! So, I totally stopped and got lunch to g0, which was nothing else but my favorite—the half portion (which is HUGE) of Sabrina’s Favorite Sandwich:
I LOVE this sandwich SO very much! It is a combo of raw cashew sheeze, raw hummus, sprouts and lettuce on raw onion “bread“. Sounds odd but I’m telling ya, it is a winning combo. Very messy though but I inhaled it! I also had a cup of lemonade + POM shot when I got home:
This afternoon I was totally planning on doing a 60 minute yoga podcast but changed my mind because it was an absolutely PERFECT day outside (despite the massive amount of pollen in the air)! About 72 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. So, I went for a 40 minute bike ride all the way down to the air force base (made me think of you, Gina!) and back. The ride is breathtaking along the bay and through shady neighborhood streets. I couldn’t have asked for more! On my way home, I stopped at the CUTEST new little produce stand/shop that had just opened up about two weeks ago:
It was seriously adorable and I am planning on going back as soon as I have some cash. The owner actually goes herself out to farms in the middle of nowhere every other night (in the MIDDLE of the night!) to buy the produce locally from farmers. Talk about fresh! I mustered up 50 cents to buy the juiciest pear ever, which I promptly ate right when I got home from my bike ride:
Tonight for dinner my mom made chicken fajitas in the slow cooker! Okay, I seriously have to give mad props to my mom for a second. She works 24/7 but still manages to make time to put together dinner for me, my brother and my dad to enjoy while she is at work! Last night she even put salads already made in the fridge with our names on them. Now do you see why I still live with my parents?! I think she deserved the flowers yesterday! She also totally put rose petals in my lunchbox today……moms rock.
I had some with two warmed up organic blue corn taco shells, a sprinkle of cheese and a side cup of tomato soup that had to be eaten or thrown!
Here are some fun pictures from work today! Get ready to drool =)
The “famous” oatmeal bread:
English muffin bread:
Potato rosemary roasted garlic bread:
Homemade PITA CHIPS!!!!! I ate two straight out of the oven and they totally burned my mouth off. But, as my coworker and I were discussing this today, there are just some things that you cannot resist in life. A homemade hot pita chip is at the top of that list for sure.
GRANOLA BARK! Sorry folks, but it really isn’t that good for you!!!! It sure is pretty though 🙂
I’m hitting the bubble bath and then my book (MizFit, I am reading “Sarah” by Marek Halter. LOVE IT!). I’m also re-reading some of my old journals, which is a fun adventure in itself! Do you guys journal? Since the time I was about eight years old, I have been a RELIGIOUS journaler. I’m serious—I have boxes and boxes of totally filled journals in my closet, stacked in order of course! 😉 It really is fun and interested to look back and read what you wrote years before…you can really see how God has worked in your life! I have been reading the journal that I kept when I was a freshman in college, and WOW, is it ever crazy! Here are two quotes from a prayer journal that I kept 5 1/2 years ago!
“Lord, I want a reason why things are the way they are. I don’t want to be so consumed by boys and body image! Please help me and lead me to focus on you and not the transitional pleasures of this world…..” 9/14/03
“GAHH I am SO sick of all this!!! I want to find the love of my life NOW and be done with these crazy mind games that the guys here play. All they do is break my heart and I can’t handle anymore pain. I want the fairy tale and cannot seem to find it!!!!!”
I laughed when I read that above quote. I was seemingly quite frustrated with the male sex at the time, obviously. How funny to think that five years later I found my fairy tale in an elevator all of all things! The Lord works in mysterious ways…..tehehe 😉
