Yesterday morning I was hurriedly making breakfast before leaving for work. My bowl of stovetop protein oats was delicious! However…
I left my stove burner on all. day. long yesterday I felt SO SO horrible, but am SO thankful nothing happened…like the house burning down.
Shane actually saw that it was on around 3:00 pm. I freaked out, thinking about everything that could have happened, how wasteful it was, how it will affect the bill, how I should have paid more attention after making breakfast, should be less scatter brained while rushing around in the morning, etc. I was shoulding all over myself. Thankfully, Shane said, “it happens. The house didn’t burn down. And we just got the gas bill, so we’ll forget it about by next month.”
Ay ay ay…anyway.
Land Lines vs. Cell Phones
Speaking of bills, I had a conversation with some coworkers today about home phone lines. Part of my job as a personal trainer involves sending and receiving faxes. Any time I train a client who’s health history requires me to talk to their physician, I need to communicate via fax and phone with their doctor to get their approval and recommendations to work out.
However, for the last two years I’ve been training, this has been quite the go around for me. It’s not a terribly annoying problem, as I only have to contact a doctor about 20% of the time, and during those times I have to use a friend or family’s fax machine. This is because I haven’t had a land line for five years!
To be honest, I’m always surprised when I find that people do have land lines still! I do understand, however, the benefit for those who work at home. Also, sometimes cable companies bundle cable/internet/phone so opting out of a land line ends up being more expensive (another reason how cable companies suck your soul from you.)
Do you have a home phone/land line? Why or why not? Shane and I opted not to have one because we each two cell phones (business and personal each) and we’d probably end up never answering the home phone
Anyway…breakfast for the first half of the morning!
Half of an Ezekiel English muffin w/ some sunflower buttah.
Plus a blueberry iced coffee to go!
It’s only half of my breakfast, because I’m training a client right in the middle of my normal breakfast time. I’ll probably munch on a Luna Bar or something once I get into the office
Well it’s time for me to scoot! I slept in an extra half hour this morning, and it was glorrrrious. That means, after work I’m headed to the gym to get in a tempo run + some chest exercises.
