The good news? Several $100 later, I’ve got my computer back! The bad news? I’ve got a major case of the grumps. I’ll try to keep this quick.
I haven’t been to the gym in a week. I’ve also been cranky for a week. I think that is solid scientific evidence that I’m happier when I workout 🙂 In the interest of considering all the data, I should also mention that I haven’t been going because my knee hurts and it’s possible I’m also cranky because I’m pissed about my knee. <– that is extra-strength ironic, you’ll see why in a minute.
First, a breakfast that didn’t make me cranky.
I didn’t want to use banana so instead I beefed up my normal stove-top oats (1/3 cup oats, 1/2 cup each water and So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk) with 1.5 Tbsp of chia seeds and 2 tsp dark brown sugar.
I topped my chewy-in-the-best-way-ever creation with Trader Joe’s Sun Butter.
Then I walked to school for lab. And I slipped on the ice. And fell. Into a puddle.
Yeah, I don’t even really know what else to say about that. I was angry and soaking wet and I wrenched my already hurt knee and bashed my ‘good’ knee into the sidewalk. And as the day went on I realized my back also is killing me. Hence the trip to Grumpsville.
After lab I walked home, gingerly, and took advantage of the Subway $5 Footlong promotion along the way.
I ate half today, and have the other half leftover for tomorrow.
I got the veggie sub with lettuce, tomato, spinach, red onion, green peppers, cucumber, black olives, and pickles. I added a little Stubbs BBQ Sauce when I got home.
Delish. Also another sandwich that did not miss the cheese.
I also got a large diet coke with ice and dipped pretzels into it.
And then I ate this thing of cashews.
Unfortunately the sandwich and massive snack attack didn’t take care of my other complaint – I was hungry, all day long. Pretty much all day when I wasn’t complaining about my back I was frantic with hunger; Adam thinks I’m a joy to be with. I took unphotographed nibbles of pretty much every item in the fridge (chickpeas leftovers, potatoes, peanut butter…).
Happy Sidenote – I was recently sent some Arnold’s 100% Whole Wheat Flax and Fiber Sandwich Thins to sample. [I like them a lot] The husband is obsessed with them! Look at his lunch –
When we got the last-minute call about my computer (yay) we headed out, scrapping our dinner plans and opting for Moe’s instead.
I housed this veggie burrito with rice, pinto beans, sautéed mushrooms and onions, guacamole, and black olives.
I actually still have an assignment to do tonight (and of course I still have to complain about it) so I’ve got to go. You’ll miss my cheery disposition 🙂
Have you ever slipped on the ice?

Yes, in high school. The whole football team was outside waiting to get on their bus. I walked by and down I went. Did my friends help me up? No, they all laughed! I’m so sorry you’re hurt!
