Can’t Shake The Feelin’

I think both Dexter and I are a little bummed that vacation is over. He has just been sleeping under the bed all afternoon, not even coming out to eat, and I just feel blah. I guess that’s pretty typical though when you resume real life after a fun break. I just wish I was still in the mountains! 🙁 Not about to go to school!

This afternoon I didn’t work out (still laying low because of my cold) but I did clean, do laundry, make beds and catch up on emails and blog questions. I snacked on some fresh watermelon with a couple kashi crackers in the afternoon.


For dinner I decided to try my rotisserie chicken. It was so easy to carve and separate for lunches and dinner! I already made a delicious looking sandwich for tomorrow to take to work. Tonight, however, I just had it picnic-style (cold) with some bulgar wheat and broccoli. I honestly was not hungry at all but knew I needed to eat before school. This meal was quick, healthy and very comforting.


I’m bringing a snack pack of Annie’s chocolate chip bunnies to have for a snack later on tonight. Tomorrow I will get back on my exercise routine and hopefully I can shake this blah feeling!

    That is the most vibrant bunch of broccoli I think I’ve ever seen – it’s practically glowing, haha.

    That dinner looks delicious! It is always so hard to get back into the groove of things after a vacation – let alone being sick! Have a good night and hopefully the rest of the week will be easier and you can get back into your routine.

    We had rotisserie chicken for dinner too 🙂 Those things are awesome and make great leftovers for salad and sandwiches! The bulgar wheat looks delicious too… I’ve never tried it but would like to.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Rotisserie chicken is a great save! My dad would never bother cooking his own (even if he knew how), so he just buys a rotisserie chicken at Publix and picks at it for a few days. It’s a good way to play around with Asian or Mexican recipes that call for shredded chicken!
