Overtime, Tortillas, and tasty chocolate pretzel treats

Happy Hump Day!

It's especially nice because I just finished day three of Overtime...5 hours tonight and my brain is mush.  Which is not hard since I started to get sick today :-(  My nose has been stuffed all day.  I'm hoping that it was just sinues and now that the rain has passed I may be okay tomorrow.  Fingers crossed cause I need to walk at lunch.

My belly is gross.  It's looking mighty jelly-like right now :-(  I really need to do abs.  Tomorrow I swear!  I still have overtime tomorrow (that new laptop will be mine in no time!) but I can do abs in between purchase orders.  I'm about to lose my mind so I need a break.

Anyway, today was tortilla day!  I went to lunch with a friend to Baja Fresh.  I had intended on two tacos and a side of guacamole, but I changed my mind.  I almost got the mango chipotle chicken salad.  It comes in a taco shell...enough said.  And then while I was in line I saw the picture for:

Skinny Chicken Bowl

Baja Fresh's New Skinny Chicken Bowl, begins with Achiote marinated fire-grilled chicken, atop black beans, green chili tomatillo rice, and topped with calabasitas squash, achiote onions and topped with our New Tomatillo Salsa Fresca.

SOLD!  Oh and a side of guacamole.  I HEART Guacamole.  When you order they give you a tray with chips to munch on until your food is ready.  They didn't give me my guacamole with the chips so i got the delicious fresh pico de gallo salsa.  I had to ration my chips so that I would have some for the guac.  When my number got called I had to remind them about the guac. "That comes with a bigger tray of chips. Do you want more?" DUH!  YES.

I made the plan to eat my meal before I started on the guac.  Hopefully that would cut down on the amount of chips consumed.  It sort of worked.  I did leave some of the rice in the bowl because I was full.  And yet I still had some chips.  Argh. 

For my drink I had the caffiene free diet coke.  I would normally fill up again before I leave, but this time I did not.  I still had a lot of crystal light and water at the office.  GO ME.

I did try to look up the nutrition of the Skinny bowl online when I got back to's not listed.  Not sure how I feel about that.

So here's the kink in the day.  Work husband and his girlfriend made some wonderful treats last night.  They gave me a container with mini-pretzels that had melted mint-milk-chocolate in the center topped with an M&M.  I love them. I hate them. I love them. I hate them. I love them.

What do I do with these?  Leave them at work?  Bring them home?  If I bring them home there is a chance that I will polish them off in one sitting. I shall leave them at work then....Um...except that I grabbed them when I left.  It was a nice night full of traffic...I ate some.  Then I ate some more.  Eventually I got so mad at myself that I threw the container in the back seat so that I couldn't eat any more.  Good tactic.  But it may have been too late.

Why do I do this to myself?

Alright kids, my nose is running and I'm tired of looking at a screen for 13 hours today.  Get some sleep and remember: Tomorrow is a new day!

  1. That Skinny Chicken Bowl sounds super yummy! That does make me nervous that they don't have the calories of it online yet though... sounds a bit fishy to me.
