Despite my planning ahead last night by having my breakfast made, my workout clothes laid out, and my green monster ready to go:
I left the house in a whirl wind, and didn’t have time to do a morning post. It seems like whenever I work out in the morning, it’s harder to get in a post. And this morning I did 40 minutes on the elliptical, thus, I was running late. I wanted to get in some strength training, but that will have to come tonight.
I’ll get back to how my day went in a minute, but first, I want to present to you last night’s dinner:
This meal was SOOO good, and sooo easy! I got the recipe from my Betty Crocker Cook book. It was in the “slowcooker” section.
The prep work was next to nil. I just chopped up an onion, a green pepper, and opened three cans of tomatoes (two diced, one crushed.) I poured all the ingredients, plus 3 frozen all-natural chicken breasts in the crock pot.
Next, I piddled around the house for 7 hours, and then turned the crock pot to warm after I stirred in 1/3 cup of Maranathas organic Peanut butter. I cooked some egg noodles, and voila! An awesome tasting dinner for two!
Ok, it made way more than two servings, but we plan on eating it again tonight for dinner, but this time served over rice.
Ok, back to today! Like I said, this morning started out kinda crazy. I got to work and had a scary voicemail from my doctor. I’d had a pap smear a while ago, and the only time they call is bad news. I had to have precancerous cells on my cervix removed in 2007, and every time I get a pap smear, I’m deathly afraid they’ll come back.
Luckily, today when I called back, they told me that while I did have an atypical cell, the virus wasn’t present, so they weren’t worried that it was precancerous. So instead of seeing me in a year, they just want to see me in 6 months.
I just saw the voicemail and automatically assumed the worse. I put myself through pure false-reality agony from the time I got to work until the time they opened their office so I could call– for nothing. Anyway, I was happy to say the least, and I went on with my work day. As Mark Twain once said, “I’ve had many terrible experiences in my life, some of which have actually happened.” Apparently he’s a fellow worry-wart, too! Anywho, I digress..
I was very busy playing catch up today, so lunch time got here with a blink of an eye. I ended up ditching my cold lunch, and went to have some BBQ with my hubski, at Long Horn Smokehouse – a really good BBQ place by our work.
I got a small beef plate (first time I’ve eaten beef in a really long time) with a side of apple sauce, green beans, and the best corn bread you’ll ever lay your eyes on. I guess you could say it’s a-finger-lickin’-gooood! Yee haw!! Ok…anyway…
Like I said, dinner will be leftovers tomorrow, so don’t anticipate a break-through meal of awesomeness for my next post (I know you were!!) Don’t worry, I’ll think up something else to write about ;-D
I’ll leave you with some things I’m thankful for, because it couldn’t be a Monday without an “I’m thankful” list!
I wrote this list right after I called the doctor to find out the situation I created in my mind was just that, my imagination. Yes, I’m thankful for Honest Tea today. Don’t judge. Casual means I’m thankful that I can dress casually at a corporate office - jeans and flip flops today, though the flip flops were probably pushing it. B&N is Barnes and Nobles, hee hee!
What are you particularly thankful for today?
