I am so excited for my 5k tomorrow. I used my new Weight Watchers bag yesterday – not sure if its a lunch bag or not, but that’s what I am using it for.
My original goal was to raise $100, and I am shocked that I am almost to $300! Huge thank you to my Aunt Cele, my Mom, Carrie, Lynne, my MIL Bonnie, Debbie, Lisa and someone who donted in the memory of Diana – I only have $40 to go to raise $300 (I may have to hit up my bosses today!). Here is my fundraising page link.
I was just about to jump in the shower yesterday when I decided that I wanted a parfait for breakfast – only one tiny problem, I hadn’t made my fruit sauce yet – so quick and simple! I took a cup of mixed berries out of the freezer, tossed them in a bowl and microwaved them for 1 minute to slightly defrost, then put then in a pan with 1/2 cup of water mixed with 1 teaspoon corn starch. I cooked that over medium high heat while I was in the shower (literally 5 minutes) and when I came out, it was done. And super hot! I poured the sauce into a mason jar and had to wrap it in a dish towel to carry it to work.
Once at work I threw the sauce (still warm!) and the yogurt in the work freezer for 30 minutes. Breakfast was 6 points.
I wasn’t sure I was able to get away from my desk so I didn’t even try to get together with my sister. I finally walked away and went to the farmers market in the Daley Center right across the street from my office. I am definitely picking up a steak for dinner so I can use the crimini mushrooms I bought. I actually always thought they were spelled cremini?!
I almost pulled the trigger on this honey for the honeycomb alone – but $12? But as I am looking at it now, I should have gotten it – buyers remorse!
I loved all the colors of the peppers.
By the time I got back to the office, my blood sugar was 53 – so I ate super quick and didn’t really care what my picture looked like.
Shocker, I worked late last night! I told the HR manager that even if no one signs up for night secretary, that I would still have to stay late to get all my work done. We’ll see how long I can do that, I am hoping after a couple more weeks of working for three partners and two paralegals, I’ll be able to get more of a work/life balance. I do get paid overtime, so at least I have that going for me. 😀
I didn’t start making my dinner until 9:15 last night. I had thoughts of making a leftover french fry frittata, but Hannah and Jacob ate their leftovers too – I am shocked as shit because they hardly ever eat leftovers. I love, love, delicata squash. I love that you can eat the skin. It takes a while for my oven to get to temp, so I ate at 9:45, but these squash take only 15 minutes at 425 – simply slice in half, scoop out the seeds, slice into half moons, drizzle with a bit of salt and pepper, and I used everything but the bagel seasoning. In the last 5 minutes I threw in my leftover burger.
I have a busy weekend and am so happy about that! My walk tomorrow morning, lunch with Nicole on Saturday then my Mom has a concert on Sunday and we’ll be trying out a new place in Oak Park called Altiro, which is a Latin fusion restaurant – I think tiny plates, which my Mom and I love so we can try all different kinds of things.
I am also on the brink of starting my Metabolic Reset with Steve Weatherford – I’ll talk more about it as I get more information today on Monday’s post, but I am excited.
I can’t believe Hannah and Jacob’s wedding was already a week ago – time is flying by.
Happy Friday my friends – make it a great day!
