Day 5: OOTS a Daisy!

August 25, 2010

You’re probably musing over my title…keep on musing! 🙂

So, I woke up this morning ready for my swim!  And then as soon as I tried to get out of bed, I felt like I had been hit by a truck! I was so sore from my heavy lifting workout!  Not to mention exhausted. Having only 6 hours of sleep (the most I had gotten all week :-(), I made the executive decision to sleep in until 6:10AM…lucky me!

My alarm went of at 6 and I was ready to take on the day…or so I thought.  Talk about Murphy’s Law, watch this:

-6:55AM: dump scalding tea down my work clothes as I’m rushing to get out of the house

-6:56AM: begin expletive string 🙂

-6:57: clean mess, hop in car

-6:58: take out frustration on husband

-6:59: apologize to husband

-7:30: arrive at work

-7:31: realize I have NONE of my food for the day

-7:32: turn around to head home

-8:00: arrive home, grab food, run out

-8:35: arrive at work, FINALLY

-8:36: SHIT HITS THE FAN!!!!! (continues to for about 6 hours)

-6PM: leave work, head to Costco

-6:30PM: relax while strolling through Costco

-7:30: arrive home and realize I left my access card at work or possibly in Costco parking lot

-8PM: arrive at Costco to search for access card (its got all my personal info on it…not good!)

-8:15: determine it’s not there!

-8:30: break into my work building…FOUND IT!!

-9PM: finally home for the night 😦 Get to eat dinner!

Eats throughout the day were the same 🙂 Here are some snippets!

Yerba Mate

Tofu cubed mixed with fat free cottage cheese

Hardboiled eggs and some grilled chicken since I ran out of egg whites.

Dinner was a treat! Salmon Nigiri on Brown Rice!  I also made some roasted brocc and mushrooms along with a peanut dipping sauce (cheat but clean)…no pics as I inhaled!

Dessert was a bit of a cheat as well (according to my diet plan), also no pics because I was starved! 3 dates filled with an assortment of nut butters: pepita seed, peanut butter, almond butter=YUM!

Hubby got me this AWESOME lunch box for Christmas!  I haven’t used it in a little while, but decided to go ahead and use it since I’m portioning out all my meals and need these little containers!  I was even more excited when I found my OOTS Lunchbox on OPENSKY!  I was so happy! Not only is this box super cute and fun, but totally functional for all my meal planning blog friends 🙂  Check it out!

How cute is this lunchbox!?

So  many great compartments!

How was your day? Ever had the day from hell? Can you do anything but just laugh??

    I love the name of your post 🙂

    That lunchbox is adorable! I will go check it out. And when I have a horrible day where everything goes wrong, I usually laugh. Then I cry, but then I start laughing again.

    I hope today is better for you!

    Ohhh Alyssa you poor thing! 😦 You’ve been having the craziest week in the world already and now a totally over the top ridiculous day like this – GAH! All you can do is laugh and shrug, really. 🙂 Oy vey though.

    I do love that lunchbox! Wayyy cuter than my gross recycled plastic bags….

      Thanks, Lauren! Hoping the s*** is hitting the fan all at once and things will slow down 🙂 Gotta laugh though, or else you’d cry! Lunch box is on OpenSky in my store, but out of stock right now 😦

    Ohhhh sorry for the bad day 😦 It seems like you haven’t been doing too well the past couple days 😦 Maybe a nice, relaxing stretch would help with a hot cup of tea! That makes me feel better.
