The snow began to fall at approximately 10:00 yesterday morning.
This means I was complaining about it by…. oh…. 10:05.
Now, before you call me a scrooge, hear me out. It’s not so much the snow on the ground I have the issue with. It’s pretty. It’s the falling snow part I have issues with. Because every year it’s like people forget how to drive. And every year I get stuck in the the most ridiculous traffic ever.
And I think we’ve gone over my lack of patience.
So instead of “how pretty!”, I proclaimed, “the drive home tonight is going to blow”.
And I was right. As usual.
My lack of creativity in the kitchen has really been astonishing. But when you don’t get home until much later than usual, you want a quick meal that’s proven effective.Along with scrambled eggs being one of the 4-5 things (salad, soup, oatmeal, eggs) consumed all week, breakfast is also a comfort food of mine. Since I was pouty, it only makes sense.
But check out the semi-successful omelet stuffed with black olives, spinach, mushrooms and feta! Usually it ends up a scrambled mess, but my roommate was cheering me on. And I used an extra egg white. One of those things surely was what did it.
As much as the snow fell, though, I was determined to make it to the gym for my “Free for all” day (as according to my non-plan plan). This required me to lay out everything and dust off the good ol’ snow boots.Not awful by any means, but a feeling in my stomach says it’s only a teaser of what is yet to come.
One benefit of this lil’ snow fall we got?
The gym was VERY quiet. Sure, us die hards were there (yes, I’m a hard core gym rat these days). But there was no issue getting the machines I wanted, and the perfect magazine from the rack to keep me entertained during time spent on the elliptical and stairmill.
Did you know Kim Kardashian is getting divorced?!?!?
Sadly the magazine wasn’t 3 months old, but yet again outlining the details.
Seriously? I’m bored, guys.
The workout went swimmingly- 20 minutes on each machine, which was a good start to my “free for all” day. And because there is this little rule about strength being somehow incorporated, I’ll be chillin’ with Jillian after work tonight.
Unless 10 minutes of shoveling snow off my stairs/sidewalk counts?
Have a great Friday, kids! I was skeptical at the beginning of the week, but it looks like we made it!
