Another busy training day for me - I was taking calls and learned a lot. Not a bad job, considering! A guy in the office asked me if I wanted to go out for a drink after work. Don't know WHAT I'm doing these days, but suddenly the men are flocking around! How fun!
Last night I made a stew from lamb, onions, and sweet potatoes. Threw some garlic powder and salt in there, and it was a delicious stew-like dish. So yummy, and perfect for a cold rainy night. Anne, my best friend, came over, and we ditched the idea of leaving the bldg to run any errands. We hung out at my place and then went downstairs to her place and continued our chat. (BTW, it is SO fun to have my best friend living in the same building!) I did get to bed earlier last night, but it was still 11:30 by the time I showered and got to bed. But I was much more awake today than I have been other days, and that is why I have to give myself a curfew.
Tonight I'm going to work out, eat my leftover stew, and get to bed. I was supposed to help my neighbor Mike celebrate his birthday tomorrow evening, but it looks like that plan may have changed because he's got something going on. I think we're moving from being 'friends and neighbors' to 'seeing each other'. Anne thinks he is utterly charming and handsome, so I think I'll go with the flow on this and see what happens! It would be TOO funny to have both my best friend and a boyfriend in the building - but I can also see potential issues with me needing my space and setting boundaries. I need to make some rules clear to him to avoid problems later.
Food-wise today was good. Banana-pineapple juice-egg protein powder smoothie for breakfast, a small snack of wheat-free cookies mid-morning, lamb chops (that were incredible) for lunch with a spinach salad on the side, and a luna bar for an afternoon snack. I need to figure out some other options for snacks. I'd like to find something that isn't meaty, but still has a fair amount of protein, and preferably is sugar-free. Pumpkin seeds are a favorite of mine, but sometimes they just don't cut it. Any suggestions would be welcome, so don't hesitate to contact me if you have any! I do also like to eat blueberries or cherries for a snack, so maybe that's what I'll have to make myself do for my fruit portions for the day....
Time for dinner, and a workout, and sleep, definitely not in that order!
