This is a very boring post.

21 Jan

Ok, so I am bored. Like really bored. I feel like there’s nothing to do tonight and I had today off so I finished everything that needed to be done. I need some excitement. I need some variety. I need something.

Thursday night dinner was a complete fail. I saw oven roasted vegetables on Snacking Squirrel and it looked amazing! So I tried my best to make a meal like that but yeah, fail.

I started with mixing chile pepper honey marinade with tofu and let it sit.

Then I chopped up baby spinach, kale, onions and mixed in with the tofu. When I chopped up everything and mixed it together, I kept imagining how tasty it was going to be along with healthy.

Baked at 350 for 15 minutes.

 In theory it was good but I didn’t have any squash or something heavier in there to make it a full meal. So I sat around wondering what to do. I could make something easy like pizza, nachos or pasta but I wanted something different. I called some friends and no one was available to dine with me, boo. I was flipping through my coupons and such and saw this:

Hmmm, Ruby Tuesdays? I worked there in college but really haven’t been since. I’m not a huge fan of chain places but why pass up on a free burger? I went and opted to sit at the bar so I could at least distract myself with beer and spots.  I was the only chick at the bar and felt like the only one not there on business since there are three or four hotels within a 1/2 mile radius. Oh well, I would enjoy being a younger woman all by her lonesome…..with the help of some Yuengling and biscuits.


I got the Alpine Swiss Burger which came out in no time along with their endless fries. The fries were crispy, fried, salty goodness. My only complaint is now they are a tad more chic, the ketchup is served in ramekins and not a bottle in sight. I put ketchup on everything so I like to have a bottle within reaching distance. I definitely didn’t need endless fries and didn’t take them up on the offer. And the burger? Succulent with just enough toppings to make it fun yet not fall apart. I think the menu said it was 8 oz and it was a lot better than I expected.

I could only finish half and was happy to take the other half to go. I think I’ll enjoy it on a salad this wknd! The rest of the night was hanging with little man.

It was technically my Friday since I had Friday off from work so guess what we did? Yep, watched even more Gilmore Girls.

Instead of just lounging around the rest of the afternoon, I got off my butt and went to the YMCA. I did 35 minutes on the elliptical then did an upper body circuit including

*Rows -40 lbs (13 reps, 3 sets)

*Lateral Pull Downs-50 lbs (13 reps, 3 sets)

*Seated Shoulder Press -20 lbs (13 reps, 3 sets)

*Concentration Curls-20 lbs (13 reps, 2 sets)

*Curls-20 lbs (13 reps, 2 sets)

*Seated Fly-20 lbs (13 reps, 2 sets)

Then the after came and went. I really don’t know what I did after that since I was so bored and probably just sat around. Seriously, I am really bored over here and am not being melodramatic. For dinner, I made nachos with black beans, onions, jalapenos, avocado and cheese.
