Sometimes, a salad out of a mixing bowl is just necessary.
Who’s with me?!?!
I honestly haven’t really been craving the veggies lately. I go through phases, and right now is apparently my non-veggie phase. Today, however, the thought of a nice, big chopped salad (made my favorite way) the size of my face sounded super appealing.
Into the bowl went:
- garden cherry tomatoes
- baby carrots
- red onion
- grilled chicken
- dried cranberries
- dressing –> 1/2 tbsp EVOO + balsamic vinegar + a few shakes of oregano & basil
It was incredible. And I think I’m all set on the veggie front for now, too.
After lunch, I got to work on testing out the new curtains I picked up today from Target. I’m still trying to play around with them and see if I even like them…
I did buy a decorative rod (gonna let hubby take care of that later) and I also have another pair of panels so it’ll better fill the window, but I didn’t want to undo both packages juuuuust in case. I’m still undecided, but I think not having the decorative rod up there will make a world of difference. I don’t know…what do you guys think?
The rest of my afternoon consisted of a conference call with a client, a bit more work, making sure I was online at exactly 3pm to purchase another shirt from The Chive for the hubby (I succeeded again – best wife EVER, I’ll tell ya!) and a nice four mile walk on the treadmill while catching up on a few chapter of my book.
Today has actually been sort of an off day for me. I’ve been feeling a bit frustrated with my whole HA situation and it’s just been one of those days where I’m really annoyed. I’ve been so antsy to really work up a good sweat. I’m frustrated that I’m feeling blah about my body image. I want to feel comfortable.
So it’s days like today where I go back and re-read all of your caring, hopeful, supportive, and uplifting comments and emails. And then I remind myself that I’m doing this for a reason. And then, I honestly feel better…because I know it’s going to all work out in the end.
Needless to say, it felt great to just spend that time earlier walking and moving…even if I wasn’t working up a big sweat!
Sorry for the tangent…just had to air that one out today.
So, in addition to everything else I had going on this afternoon, I also managed to do a little damage in the kitchen…
You guys, I’m really excited about this one.
And actually, I should go out and finish up that frosting right about now…
I’ll be sure to share the recipe as soon as they’re taste tested and given a couple thumbs up…
But I’d be willing to bet that you could guess what’s hiding in there!
