Okay, I don’t know where to start, from today or last night? I guess I will give you a little recap from yesterday. John chose Pizzeria Uno for his birthday dinner.
Little known blog fact that we lived outside of Chicago for 5+ years. We loved the deep dish pizza there. So, that is what he wanted. I actually decided I didn’t want pizza and I was really surprised at all the wonderful things on the menu!
Here is John’s pizza:
Yum.. Nothing like that buttery, crispy deep dish. I decided on a warm goat cheese salad with blueberry pomegranate dressing. The goat cheese was coated in crushed nuts and it was fabulous!
I would so get this again and again! We then hit the theater to see Inception:
This was quite a good movie. I enjoyed it a lot. Not quite as good as Memento (also done by Christoper Nolan), but better than a lot of other movies out there! Dinner and a movie. That is the kind of date night we just never have anymore.
Fast forward to this morning and I could not make myself go out in the humidity to run, and I didn’t feel like going to the gym and treadmilling it, either. I can get pretty lazy at times, too. Actually, it is just the running thing. I am having trouble getting really back into it again.
Anyway, I made breakfast and started working. Here is the other new bowl I got the other day.
I like small bowls because they make my breakfast look even bigger, which makes my eyes happy 😀
I have to say that today I am really feeling the pressure of the 2 jobs. I feel like I have been working all day. Well, okay, I have been working all day. Not to mention that this week has felt a little crazy, too. I broke for lunch:
Then came the snack parade. I had some blueberries:
and the last cupcake:
No latte today because we were out of coffee (I can’t even believe I wrote that!!!). So without the latte, I managed to have some granola:
Count that bowl a couple times. Pixie was like “Are you going to stop eating already??”
I think some of it was stress from working and just feeling a little out of sorts. Finally at dinner time I took a break from work. I did manage to not snack while making dinner At least that habit is going well LOL! I had some Buitoni pasta that we received a coupon for from Foodbuzz.
It was shrimp and lobster ravioli. John had some the other day and the garlic cream sauce was sooooo strong that I decided to leave it off and just use tomato sauce on the raviolis (which were quite tasty).
Then we decided to go for a ride. I needed to decompress and get some exercise in today – so we hit a 12 mile ride. John’s new jersey!
With his jersey and me in Rosie, we certainly are not a subtle couple on the roads LOL! We hit up the frozen yogurt place. It is so sticky and steamy out. I had butterscotch yogurt.
Cool and refreshing.
So, there was a less than stellar eating day. Actually, if I blank out the time between lunch and dinner, it would be fine LOL!
I am posting this and getting back to work. I have a little more to do and really feel beat. Gotta finish up to watch Project Runway!
