Project TTC-D Post #1 (Pic Heavy)
Okay, so I am BLOWING through my Project TTC-D (Trying to Calm Down) list today.
Got a massage! Wheeeeee! That lady has the hands of a goddess. So relaxing. The bad part is that I did this on my lunch hour, and so after getting completely relaxed, I had to shake myself back awake and go back to work. Boooooo!
Yes, the salon is over a Quiznos. If you're super into kind of meh chain subs, you could grab a massage and a sammy at the same time!
Calling my name...
Me, after a 50 minute massage. This picture makes me laugh for 2 reasons. A) I look like a hot mess. My HAIR! B) That is what I call my Monkey Face. Sometimes, depending on the camera angle, I look EXACTLY like a hairless monkey. If you know anyone that is still denying that humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor, please feel free to direct them to exhibit A. And yes, I combed my hair and refreshed my makeup before I went back to work.
Then, this afternoon before I left for the day, I went to my work's free gym and did some strength training. Ideally, I would rather do free weights than machines, but since I don't work in a gym or a prison, I will have to make do with machines.
The torture rack:
For the uninitiated - you like...hang from that thing, and then pull your knees up to work your abs. The ab thing is bad enough, but after a while my arms also feel like they are going to pop out of their socket from holding up my lovely bulk.
Then, I cooked a meal from scratch. Mostly. I used jarred garlic, and got a loaf of bread from the bakery. But if I only ate home made bread, I would never eat bread.
I made Unstuffed Pepper Casserole and a salad.
I don't believe in bagged salad. Don't hold with it. Those little shreds of carrots infuriate me. I want more carrot, and that is almost worse than having no carrot.
Probably it would have been pretty healthy if I hadn't melted like half a bag of cheese on top. But that's what makes it casserole - you can't have casserole with out mass amounts of almost burnt cheese!
A (Tristan sized) plate:
Aaaand finally, while I was at the grocery store today, I bought some new nail polish for when I give myself a pedicure.
Pshew! Big day!
