RememberHowToSmile - Do you have a healthy chop suey recipe that you have been making?
Rosario - Isn't Fiber 1 cereal AMAZING? I am obsessed with it.

I wish I could say that instead it's chinese take out, but they steam it so it is not that bad. (Compared to other chinese food take out.) Unfortunatly it resulted in a late day getting home which resulted in take out and that was the best option (the other was bar food).

RememberHowToSmile - that is so awesome you overcame that temptation! Most everyone I know doesn't like McD's...BUT I DO!! Haha. It's inspiring when you are faced with something like that and you still make it work in a healthy way! Thumbs up!
I had to stop my fresh/organic fruits and veggies week yesterday because I was feeling pretty sick. Two of my close sitting co-workers and my boyfriend are sick so...it was inevitable I was going to get it, haha.
So I had:
- Trail mix and a granola bar
- Half a turkey/bacon/avacado sandwhich and some soup
I couldn't stomach more because of how crappy I was feeling, except later in he evening when I went to warm up the left over soup. I ended up spilling it every where while trying to get it out of the microwave. It got EVERYWHERE in my kitchen...even all over my arm. So now I have blisters (and blisters on top of blisters) all up and down my arm. Not very fun, but the soup going everywhere was kind of funny. :)
Well now I'm here at work again...feeling crappy and my arm really hurts and I'm really tired because my arm hurt all night...haha...poor-woe-is-me ;)
Today I'm having:
B: Some fresh mango slices...not going to lie, I'm pretty excited about that.
S: Probably some more trail mix
L: Other half of that turkey sandwhich - not super healthy, but not too bad
S: I think I'm going to get a delicious sugar free beverage from somewhere
D: Oh sheesh, I dunno! The boyfriend and I MIGHT be going out. YIPES! We haven't been able to hardly see each other these couple weeks because he and I have been ridiculously busy. If not, I'll prolly have some delicious portabello mushroom thingers with organic tomato sauce. Mmm. Those are good!
I hope to go to the gym later this evening...we'll see how these burns hurt later on...perhaps I will just do the bicycle? Good plan.
Any suggestions for the pain? My sweet roommate got me some aloe stuff that worked pretty good last night...but I couldn't really bring it to work...so now i'm just laying cool towels on it for now. I feel like the biggest baby, haha. I usually handle pain really well...I dunno whats up! Haha!
