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 BowlBaja 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 work...it'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!
