I’m doing really well managing my schedule – but I am not without anxiety! Every night when I leave the office it sets in. Gotta drive. Rush to answer> emails. Rush to the gym. Help Matt with dinner. Have family meetings over our meal. Clean-up (thankfully he does that). BLOG. More emails. Sell our house. Open a bakery. Become an R.D.
Too much at once!!
I know what I need to do: let go of some of my Type A // OCD quirks, such as not being able to go up to bed with dishes drying on the counter or waiting more than 24 hours to respond to a non-urgent email.
Tonight the kitchen floor is dirty. The carpets need vacuuming. We have piles of trash upstairs from installing new hardware and knobs in our bathroom.
AND IT IS OK.
I’m going to save some emails for tomorrow too.
Now for that blogging part. [And before you suggest I skip it, it’s really one of my favorite parts of the evening!]
My commute snacks:
They were perfect and filled me right up.
I whizzed to the gym after unpacking and tending to a few computer duties. I kept it short and sweet with 30 minutes of Stairmaster and 10 of lifting. The world’s fastest upper body workout: 20 [assisted] pull-ups and 20 dips. Followed by a few abs [just enough to make ’em hurt] and I was on my way home to..
What would I do without him!?
On the menu: a meal I’ve been saving for a while
Amy’s sent me a few products to review a while back and I knew I should save them for the busier days that lied ahead. So glad I did! This Spinach Pizza was in and out of the oven in 10 minutes. Nutritionals and ingredients. [There were ONIONS in the ingredient list so I was worried, but thankfully they were blended in and not chunky and I did not taste them]
How did it taste? It was awesome!!! I can’t remember the last time I had a frozen pizza, but it sure exceeded my expectations. And was so easy to "cook." I wish it had had a whole wheat crust, but I was still totally pleased with the real-food ingredient list. I think I’d like to try one of the whole wheat ones next time, but there was nothing bad about this pie!
I had 3 slices – maybe 1/3 of the pizza?
And an arugula salad with peppers, carrots and almonds tossed in a little EVOO, salt and agave for dressing. Best. Dressing. Ever.
Matt and I polished off the pizza – he cut me a baby slice off of the big daddy one left on the pan for a final taste!
