Country Grammar

28 Apr

I started today out with some would say a non traditional breakfast…..a whole wheat wrap with Trader Joe’s Organic Hummus, lettuce, half a tomato and mushrooms.

Surprisingly good and filling. May need to try this again. Nothing remarkable about this morning it was pretty quiet. I’ve been in a better mood lately at work and I think my co-workers think I’m getting some loving on the regular or something. Even I think I’m extra preppy for my normal demeanor so who knows. But keeping a positive attitude while at work was one of my goals for this month so I’m definitely on that!

I deal with a lot of nasty people in my industry(I guess dealing with millions of dollars on a daily basis makes some people that way?) And dealing with a particularly rude one this morning I sent him a quick “Thank you” for finally emailing me documents that I’ve been requesting for almost a month now. He responded back with “Your welcome” ummm its you’re. It took everything in me (and the fact I don’t want to be fired) not to respond with “Its you’re biznatch!” You can be nasty to me for no reason but at least I know how to use your as opposed to you’re!

I had leftover pork enchiladas for lunch.

I’ve made enchiladas before but never with pork and this was hands down the best batch yet. I don’t know if it was the succulent (how do you like that big word!) pork or the full fat cream cheese but I was in a fatty lactose heaven!

We had three people out this afternoon (yeah I work on a team of six) so things were a bit hectic after lunch. Most of it involved cleaning up  other peoples problems which is annoying but unfortunately part of the job. But its all good since I already have a few hours overtime this wk. Which means extra time and a half money so bring it on! Anyone else get paid OT?

 

I then decided to go for a run. I don’t like daytime running at all but figured it was going to be light out for a while go and get that done with. There weren’t too many people out on the trail and the sun was shining and things were perfect. I love how the light was shining on me and it was silent except for my footsteps. What I didn’t like was looking at my shadow and seeing my big booty shadow. But then again, it was kinda encouraging. I haven’t ran in a while so it was tough me. I would run two or three minutes then walk one and repeat. My ankle was killing me sporadically (thank you Clueless for giving me that word), I couldn’t breathe and my heart rate was getting into the 190’s/200’s so I had to slow it down a bit. Regardless, a good workout. I covered about 4 miles in 50 minutes and had a nice calorie burn!

Yeah, 169 was my average hr. EEEK!

I have no fresh veggies on hand and no meat so dinner tonight was easy to decide on. When in doubt I BFD! I went with egg in a hole which I’ve seen but never made. I took two pieces of bread, made a hole in each with a glass then put on the stove top with 1 tbsp melted butter. I whisked two eggs with salt, paprika and shredded cheese then poured it into the hole.

I laid out a dab of ketchup for each piece of bread and spread Trader Joe’s Superfruit Spread on the cut out pieces of bread

Carbs, eggs and cheese? Count me in. I loved it!

These are officially the devil’s work

And their packaging lies. It says one serving is 50 pieces (40g). I measured this out and this did not look like 50 pieces to me but then again, I could just want more but want have more and am bitter about that.

Has anyone heard of the show Sunset Daze? It’s a new reality show on WE about a retirement community in Arizona. Some are saying it’s Golden Girls meets Jersey Shore. I cannot wait to watch it! I am just hoping there is no hot tub scenes or making out at the bridge club.

And check out Missy Maintains for a chance to win a Seventh Generation Cleaning Kit! Ends on Friday so hurry over there :)

Another one that ends on Friday is for a nice Wiseman Tea Package including a pot and samples of tea–check out the contest over at Danica’s Daily!
