Running in Skirts

all work and no play…

Posted on: May 27, 2009

pretty much sums up my life this week.  pretty much that means no gym (i am NOT a morning person, so that is not an option) and yesterday it even meant eating all three meals at work.  woo freaking hoo.

i’m going to try and start taking pictures of what i eat… i am still not telling too many (or any) people about this blog until i feel really comfortable with it, so there will only be pictures when i’m by myself!

for starters, yesterday’s breakfast (and most days) was a yogurt with a handful of kashi go lean crunch, some fruit, and some citrus green tea.

lunch yesterday was a turkey ruben, with some baked bbq lays…  and a few pieces of chocolate throughout the day too.  my manager has this twisted notion that a team of 3 people should have a halloween bounty worth of candy within arms reach at all times.  i’ve done a fairly good job of restraining myself, but sometimes it just cant be helped…

like after you use your hard-earned accounting degree to take a walk in the rain to get your senior and manager some coffee at starbucks…  ooh yeah, chocolate was necessary after that!

for dinner i had a yummy salad, with grilled chipotle bbq chicken and black beans and tomatoes and corn… and the dressing mixed in!  grr!  i guess i should just be glad the firm was paying for it 🙂

once i got home from work (ohh you know, a casual 12+ hour day), i made myself feel better with some leftover birthday ice cream cake and peppermint tea:

ahh how do you rotate pictures?!

breakfast this morning was more of the yogurt + cereal routine… plus tea… plus some grapity grapes

hmm where did they go?

lunch was chicken and veggie stir-fry.  i have a sneaking suspicion that the sauce had too much sugar in it, and the rice was white, but whatev.  it still tasted good!  somehow more of that candy snuck over to hang out with my ten-key

oh and there was more, trust me.  i needed it again after the day i had… not quite like yesteday but not so great either!  anyway, dinner was a rachel ray recipe with pasta (we only had white penne, lame!)  and tomatoes and onion and chicken broth.  it was pretty good… not as pretty as rach’s but it was yum-o none the less.  i dont know why i didnt take a picture of it… when you eat dinner at 10pm every night i guess you become too consumed with eating and not so much with the camera.  ohhhh well.

anyway the one good thing about staying late tonight was the ability to get to show you all the fabu view we have from our audit room, and how gorgeous the city looks at twilight.  i had the best walk to my train ever!  gorgeous weather, and the prettiest colors reflected on the buildings!

and the four seasons, right next door… some of my most romantic daydreams revolve around the four seasons! :-*

and finally, the comcast center, right across from the train station.  i love the way it looks almost like the building is blending into the clouds.  it was a gorgeous walk!

i hope everyone is having a nice evening… one question  – how did you all start taking pictures of your food without being self-conscious?
