Long Winded Catch Up

Well it’s raining, and it’s Tuesday, so there’s that.  I did not have yesterday off like most people, but was just really busy at work and didn’t do much over the weekend worth writing about.  We actually got out of work at 1 pm on Friday, still not really sure why, something about us being awesome hard workers during the holidays.  We’ll just pretend I wasn’t on vacation for most of December.

Getting out early allowed me to squeeze in the final workout of Week One, Phase 1, shoulders and abs.  My shoulders are amazingly weak, and I was somewhat embarrassed about the weights I was using for the exercises.  Guess I’ll need to work on that.  The best part about Phase 1 is you get the weekend off, I can definitely get on board with that.  The rest of Friday was extremely low key and involved sweats, One Tree Hill on Netflix, and a glass or three of wine.

I had every intention of taking myself to the movies on Saturday, but late Friday night I received and email from my BFF who’s getting married in May that my bridesmaids dress was in!  I decided to change my plans and venture into Alexandria on Saturday instead, to pick it up.

 It fits pretty perfectly, except in the chest area where it may need to be taken in some (shocker), and I believe it will be hemmed somewhat.  I’m really happy with my choice of dress and Megh’s choice of dress designer, and I especially love the pockets.  Four months until they say “I do”!

I got home just in time to catch Dani and Adrienne as they were heading out the door to watch football, so I decided to tag along.  I spent the next four hours at the bar drinking beers and eating a pizza, and made it home and into bed by 10:30 that night.  It was lovely.

Sunday brought more relaxing, as in I never changed out of my sweats or put a bra on, also lovely.  I scrounged around in my kitchen and found enough food to throw into the crock pot for dinner, and called it a day.  For being the last of all the food I had in the house, dinner actually turned out really well.  In my crock pot I put three chicken breasts, a pack of taco seasoning, some salsa, and sour cream and cooked it on low for 8 hours.

Once the chicken was done, I shredded it, put some aside in a Tupperware container, and used the rest to make a variation of Mexican Lasagna.  I did a layer of chicken on the bottom, noodles, chicken, sour cream, salsa, cheese, topped with another layer of noodles, chicken, sour cream, salsa and cheese.  Baked for an hour, and then dinner was served.  It was good, and I plan on eating it for lunch the rest of this week, while using the leftover pulled chicken for tacos and quesadillas at night.  I am guessing I’ll be extremely sick of Mexican food by the end of this week.

Yesterday was back to the grind, and I was way too busy for a Monday.  I still managed to fit in the first day of week 2 during lunch, chest and triceps again.  Narrow push-ups still make me laugh with how hard they are.  My triceps are hurting today, actually, I don’t think there’s a day during this past week that my muscles haven’t been sore.

That’s it from me, have a happy day.

Out Cold

So I finally got to fill my prescription last night, and even when giving me the pills the pharmacist warned me not to take any until I was actually at home.  I now know why.  They should change the label from “May cause drowsiness” to “holy shit you will be knocked the eff out”.  I popped one at 7 pm, and not even an hour later I couldn’t hold my head up.  I was in bed and passed out by 8:50 and didn’t come to until 2:30 am.  Haha, it was glorious.  I did wake up with a nasty headache this morning, apparently also a side effect of the meds.

So yeah, yesterday my diet still consisted of fruit smoothies.  I did manage to choke down some dinner before I passed out, but I wasn’t really hungry for it, at least it stayed down.  I’m hoping my appetite comes back today, although it has yet to make an appearance.  Hopefully before I head to dinner with my Aunt tonight!

So I have a wedding to go to with Dar the first weekend in August, he’s in it, and I have no idea what to wear.  All of my wedding appropriate dresses got worn out last year with the 4 weddings I went to, and I want something new.  It’s being held here, and he’s in it and will be wearing a tux.  I was perusing Rent the Runway last night and saw this Nicole Miller, but I’m not sure it’s right for my boday.

Sigh, I really want to go to the BCBG outlet to check out some things, but I need to make time.  Someone help me, please.  Alright, I’m off to try to eat some food.  We’ll see how this goes.  Happy Wednesday, already!
