Not Missing Much

by Courtney on April 4, 2013

Hey guys! Sorry for not getting a chance to check in with you all earlier…once again, I’ve been busy, busy, busy. I feel like I’ve barely had a chance to really chat with you all lately. Boooo.

But really, you haven’t been missing out on much. No super exciting meals, no big plans…just a lot of ordinary stuff. I’m still getting in some workouts (three so far this week, including a great 10-10-10 workout this morning), eating well a majority of the time, and enjoying treats (without regret) the rest of the time.

Last night Jay and I wound up having to meet with the guy for our taxes and by the time that meeting was over, I was pretty much done for the evening. Basically, let’s just say that taxes really blow this year and I’m sure the IRS will be throwing a party once they receive my check in the mail. Ooooof.

But anywho…I had a bunch going on at work today and wound up being away from my desk for a good majority of the day. Finally, around 1:30ish, I had a break and got the chance to sit down and have some lunch. Thanks to my lack of desire to prepare anything last night, lunch was one of my favorite throw together combos from back in the day

Yogurt + fruit and veggies + hummus. I know it doesn’t really looks like much, but I had also previously been snacking on fruit and scones that we had in the office, so I was more than satisfied throughout the morning!

I did also have some snacks for the afternoon, just in case.

I wound up leaving the banana, just because I was “fruited out” for the day, but I did snack on the chocolate chip granola bar. I actually got these in the mail a couple days ago from Sunbelt Bakery to try out, and they’re pretty tasty. I’ll have no problem finishing up the box. Winking smile

Tonight, Jay and I have plans to meet up with some friends at a new-to-us restaurant that I’m suuuuper psyched about trying. Word on the street is that they have some amazing tapas and delicious risotto, so I’m ready to bring my A-game to this meal!

I’ve been really into those snacky type lunches lately as well. I just find myself craving a lot of random things by the time lunch rolls around, and who am I to say no to a craving? ;)

That’s a yummy snack. We love bananas, but it’s a good idea to pair it up with a chocolate chip granola bar. Chocolate and bananas are amazing!

Yucky taxes. I love trying new restaurants! So exciting! I find that I can’t snack or else I’m always hungry. Big meals for me!

My lunches have been the usual foods I rotate around, but more random lately? Instead of having one thing at lunch, I’ve been craving little bits of everything. It really stinks how much money the IRS takes from everybody! Hoping next year is a better refund than this year.

Courtney, where do you get all your samples of goodies! Is it through work or are you just savvy?? :)

Blogging is seriously hurting our tax return too – we’re getting a small chunk back this year, but not much!

I hope you had a great night! Although your eats aren’t too “exciting” they are still looking pretty delicious in my opinion! Believe me, if I showed pictures of things I ate… I’m pretty sure crickets would be chirping most days!

Stupid taxes! Though I can’t complain too much this year. I always over tax myself throughout the year in hopes of not having to pay anything but rather get a refund. It always makes me feel like I’m getting a present because as far as I was concerned, the money was already gone.

That banana is going to be EXTRA good tomorrow if it already had some brown spots today. I love the ripe ones!
