All in a day’s work.

Another day, another dollar, right?  My plan was to bike this morning, but then I laid there and thought I would go out later.  So, I just got up and made some brekkie!


I have a problem wolfing down my waffles.  I think it is because they are never as hot as my oat dishes, so I can eat faster.  That’s a project to work on.

We are getting set up for the new windows.  I think we chose the right company, which actually happened to have the best price, too!  We got a very good vibe from them, and the person that came in to do the final measure this morning was great and answered every little question.  It will take about 5-7 weeks or so before our windows are done.  They have to be made.  Nice that these windows are made in the US, too.  Plus we get the tax credit on them.  The company better appreciate doing 17 windows!  That is a chunk of change.  Once the windows are installed, I will talk about the company.  Don’t want to recommend before the job is finished!

Lunch break included some vanilla yogurt mixed with pumpkin and All-Bran.

Plus a kiwi on the side.

This tasted so refreshing and yummy!

I spent some time this afternoon getting set up with my new company.  The software installation is what takes the time, and I have to fit it in while I am still working the other job.  I was told that nobody runs out of work, but you never really know if that is true or not, because there are slow periods for everyone around holidays.  I should start training on my new accounts later this week.

Time for a chocolate snack with my latte:

Dark chocolate with raspberry bits.  Tasty!

Can you believe it is almost the end of June?  I am going to try something really, really different for me in July as part of my goal series.  At least I think I am, as I have some trepidations about it.   I’ll outline my goals on July 1.  I still can’t believe I am writing out the word July!

Dinner time and I went old school with some seasoned french fries.  John put these in the grocery cart, and I had thought they were sweet potato fries, but they weren’t!  I liked them, too 😀

Chicken topped with caramelized onions.  We made up a bunch and froze some.  I can’t imagine life without a freezer, can you?  That’s a little pluot on the side, there.  So juicy.

After some self debate, I decided to take a day off of exercise.  I have not had a real rest day since last Thursday,  and the rest of the week is booked up with workouts.  So instead, I am going out with my mom for a little R&R!  The question is…. coffee or frozen yogurt???

    Rest days feel good when you’ve been working out hard, don’t they? It sounds like you were due for one.

    Maybe the treat of the day should be a coffee-flavored frozen yogurt?

    Yes, you know my vote is on the froyo too! And that is a great idea cooking up the carmelized onions ahead of time and freezing them.

    Good luck with the windows! We’re getting 30 new ones installed sometime in July. They are being manufactured now, just waiting to hear on the install date.

    I’m excited to hear about your July goals, luckily it’s tomorrow 🙂
    And wise decision to take a day off from working out, you need a rest every now and then.

    I love those protein waffles Lori. I make several of them at once and freeze them. They feel like such a treat, yet are pretty clean eats. Glad you are taking a day of rest. I have learned that our bodies need those.

    I think you should always have at least 1 day of rest. I know I fight myself to do this but I do get my one day. Especially lately with all I’ve been doing. So will you be working for 2 companies all the time or just till the new one is up and running?
