Random Deep Thoughts...

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I've been prayin for
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

Sing it Johnny, sing it!! Even though your brilliant lyrics are full of lies and deception. Today was another dreary and wet day in Northeastern suburban paradise. Gone are the days of sunshine, warmth and bliss.

I better change the subject before my disgust of all things gloomy scares you away. Be gone evil Wednesday spirits! Be gone!

INSERT EMERGENCY ADORABLE KITTY PICTURE!! Strategically timed to keep you interested. Seriously! OMG! I want it! I want 10 of them!

BREAKFAST (meal #1) at 9:30am.
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 wheat bran
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Splenda
  • (Microwaved, EXPLODED, cleaned up (sigh) and topped with 1 tbs Chocolate Better N' Peanut Butter and cinnamon)

So uhm, I do NOT care for the Chocolate version of Better N' Peanut Butter. IT'S BAD! NEVER TRY IT! You all know that I'm a fan of the original. However, the chocolate one tasted super artificial. A bit like sugar free chocolate syrup, but WORSE! YUCK! Seems as though my breakfast was just doomed from the start today. HA!

RANDOM DEEP THOUGHTS: I have yet to pack anything and we leave this Saturday. I realize it seems like I have plenty of time, but in FACT, I barely have ANY! Time, such a funny thing. It seems like everything in life has a specific time and a chosen place. Constant schedules based on suns and moons, hours and minutes, seconds and moments. I so long for a place without the ticking.

LUNCH (meal #2) at 12:30pm.

Another salad. I bet you're not even surprised anymore are you?

RANDOM DEEP THOUGHTS: Repetition, though mind numbing, provides comfort and embraces you gently with the familiar.

Spinach + Avocado + Leftover Eggplant + Cherry Tomatoes + Spray Butter + Sriracha sauce + a toasted Thomas's English Muffin on the side.

A bit later Ann and I found ourselves at Macy's again. What is it about this place??? The ALLURE is uncontrollable. As is my inability to stay away from the junior department. I am NOT a junior. What is wrong with me?

RANDOM DEEP THOUGHTS: Denial is the fountain of youth.

I bought 2 shirts..... from the denial department..... ??

SNACK (meal #3) at 5:20pm.

Nope, no delicious yogurt snack today. I lost track of time again today and worked clear through snack time. Instead, I inhaled this Granny Smith apple in the car on the way to the gym.

Long story short, I was going to run for at least a mile but a certain SISTER was whining to leave already so we could go feed the cats. I guess she was in a hurry to get home? This translates into a pathetic 6.5 minutes, .57 miles and a lot of frustration.

Total time at gym = 1:02
Max HR = 180
Average HR = 142
Total Calories Burned = 517

RANDOM DEEP THOUGHTS: Coffee makes everything better. Sweet, delectable, aromatic beans of caffeine heaven. Take me away...

SNACK (meal #4) at 7:30pm.

LARGE espresso + dried apricots + butter pretzels + a Fuji apple. I actually did NOT eat the apple. It sounded good at first but in the end, I changed my mind.

After my MUCH NEEDED coffee break, I took a nice, long, EXTRA HOT and relaxing bath. I washed this stupid day right out of my hair and felt a million times better.

DINNER (meal #5) at 9:30pm.

We're working with slim pickins at the moment. I didn't want to buy more than we could consume for the week since we're leaving on Saturday morning. I think I grossly underestimated how much we would need though. This translated into Nick having boxed Mac & Cheese and me having Thai Kitchen Bangkok Curry soup + a Flat Out wrap with the last of the leftover chicken breast + swiss + spinach + honey mustard. It was actually quite tasty. Disaster averted.

RANDOM DEEP THOUGHTS: To sleep is to be free of woe, distress and the entrapment of the never ending tic-tocking. Sweet slumber wraps me in worry free ignorance and embraces my weary thoughts in a thick layer of darkness. Oh what dreams may come.

GOODNIGHT lovelies!

your meals looks awesome, as usual! When I actually get back to "civilization" I'm using your blog as a menu guide :)

I was going to say something else more insightful but I forgot. These sites take too long to load in India!
