Gotta prepare

20 Jun

Sunday June 20th- FATHER’S DAY!

If you have not said Happy Father’s Day to your dad yet, then you better get on that.

So who is mentally and physically preparing themselves for yet another work week? I kind of have a love-hate relationship with Sundays.

Pros
-work is usually really slow and chill
-it is a day of rest
-mom or dad cooks

Cons
-beginning of a new week
-last day of the weekend
-have to get to bed extra early to start all over again

Today kind of sucks because I have had to work all day…. and I am slowly approaching a 5 day work week. I seriously need to invest in some new work shoes soon. For any of you that work in fast food, you know what I am talking about. Those cheap non-slip shoes they sell at Wal-Mart, or the Shoes For Crews
DO NOT cut it! My feet have been throbbing everyday. I need to find a better pair that I can handle with all of these long hours standing on my feet.

 

 “Without realizing who you are, happiness cannot come to you”
This was the quote that I found attached to my tea this morning. I completely agree with this quote. We all need to be comfortable in our own skin, know what we want in life, what we like and do not like, otherwise we will just end up like lost puppy dogs. This made me realize that I am approaching my senior year, and I still do not know what that I am going to do for the rest of my life. I do not know what is going to make me the happiest. I have so many things I want to be, but I am not 100% certain on just one.

 

Breakfast this morning was yet again a Bolthouse Green Goodness bowl of overnight oats. With the mighty maple, goji, puffins, and banana, it was to die for!

 

Lunch was a salad, apples with AB, and a cookies and cream protein bar.

I got creative with the salad today and added some shrimp and a lotta corn to Whit and my salad . Doesn’t it look so colorful!

 

 

**VERDICT: I was definitely not impressed by the ingredients in this bar, but I adored the taste. This cookies and cream protein bar tasted like a candy bar, and there was caramel(lot’s of it too!). This bar also has 9 grams of protein and fiber which is excellent!

And for the second review of today, we snacked on a heart after work. 

It would not be complete with out peanut butter on top of course 🙂

 

**VERDICT: I love dried fruit, so this bar was perfection. All of the dried cranberries are what MADE this bar! I still am in aww that each one of these hearts are only 150 cal. They are just so filling 🙂

 

 Today was all about dad and he wanted Taco Bell for dinner, so Taco Bell we had. Normally I am not a big fan of Taco Bell, but tonight I had a Nacho Crunch Burrito and it was fantastic. Here’s what it included: A warm flour tortilla loaded with seasoned ground beef and filled with a warm nacho cheese sauce, juicy tomatoes, reduced fat sour cream and crunchy red tortilla strips. I LOVE nacho cheese in burritos!

 

Well guys a big bowl of banana soft serve and some tv time is calling my name. I need to unwind. I am thinking tomorrow is either going to be an early morning gym date, or Turbo Fire if it comes in the mail. Enjoy your last few hours, and rest up to start back up tomorrow.

 

PEACE
