Hello wild ones! I’ve got a short work week this week and that’s always good, I hope your week is going just as well.
I think I have decided that overnight oats are just not for me. Four different recipes have been tested, none approved. I just forced myself to eat the revised cake batter oats and still was not a fan of the taste or texture. It may be time just to give up on the oats and find a new breakfast food to try.
Meal prepping went very smoothly last night, though as of right now I have not actually eaten anything that I cooked, so still not sure if it was successful or not.
Sure does look pretty though. This week’s menu is Honey Garlic Shrimp served with brown rice and balsamic roasted brussell sprouts for lunch, Spicy Pineapple Chicken salad for dinner, and celery dipped in peanut butter for one of my snacks. Not pictured are the overnight oats I am supposed to be eating for breakfast that will probably not get eaten, unless I can force myself to just eat them so they don’t go to waste, and honey pan fried bananas that I think will go nicely with my pita pockets. Oh and my vegan brownies that I forgot to portion out so I could bring one to work in case my sugar tooth strikes, dang it!
I also cleaned my room last night, as I was doing that I realized that it had been probably a month since my room got a good cleaning. Sad, but true. I washed my sheets, swept, mopped, got rid of old purses and junk that was under my bed, discovered a clutch that will come in handy, and took the few things I had hanging up on my wall down. It looks so much nicer in there without all the crap on the floor and the curtains hanging around the headboard.
My whole body is sore today. I started to notice a little stiffness early this morning before bed, but thought nothing of it. Woke up feeling like someone had worked me over with a bat. It had been far too long since I played volleyball and my body is letting me know. Even my hands hurt. My brother and I both agreed that we needed to start playing more, we both missed it and realized that not playing for so long really made our game suffer. Hopefully that will translate into weekly games.
This is one of the times I wish I had more friends. If I had a list of people to hit up I could organize weekly games/tourneys and play as much as I wanted, but alas I am lacking in the friend department. Unless of course you guys wanted to come out and play..yea, didn’t think so.
Is it sad that right now I am hoping it storms tonight and the power goes out? If the power goes out I can relocate to my home for the evening…I would so love to work from home for the night, well actually every night. Speaking of which, I should probably get back to it, I need to be productive this week so that next week I’m not running around like a chicken without a head trying to get all my work caught up for billing. Night kids!
Until tomorrow, stay wonderfully wild!
