Is it really only 9pm? Seriously, I feel like I could have fallen asleep an hour ago! It is my rest day and by golly, I'm resting!

Today started off filled with all kinds of household inspirations: I was going to do all my laundry; wash all the dishes; clean out the bunny's cage...yeah, well, so far it looks like writing this post may be the most constructive thing I will do all evening!

I started off the day with a nice little bowl of granola, blueberries & soy milk.

I did not intend to get a mocha at the coffee shop, but somehow my feet led me there anyway. Not only did I walk out with my coffee, but I somehow managed to have them whip me up a sandwich for lunch later! Can someone please chaperone me to work from now on?! Geez! I cannot be trusted!

The evil sandwich:

I generally toss out the top piece of bread so at least that relieves some of the guilt. Fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basil & lite mayo. The one time I will eat cheese without a second thought!

The first thing I do when I get to work everyday is fill up this bad boy:

That is 32oz of water at my disposal. Obviously, my intent is to kill 2 of those and then any water I drink at home is just bonus. The reality of the situation is that I usually kill the first one and never make it back to fill it up again. Bad!

Today, however, I finished off two full bottles! I used to be really good about getting a lot of water, but the past few months have just not been working for me. The strange thing is, the more water I drink, the thirstier I get! Does that make any sense whatsoever? I'm weird...

On the way home from work, it being my rest day and all, I decided to call my friend and see what he was up to. I dial the phone as I'm walking down the major street in my neighborhood...it rings once...I look up and what is that? Is that my friend sitting at a table outside a coffee shop just 20 feet from me?! It was some crazy timing!

I stopped to chat and then we started walking back to my place. I ducked into a little local grocer to grab a banana and saw this in a bin next to the register:

I huge Peanut Butter & Chocolate granola bar that looks pretty darn fresh...who cares that it was $3?! Okay, truthfully, this all happened very quickly and I didn't even think to look at the price before throwing it up next to my banana...I would have thrown it right back in that bin if had seen the price tag! But, it was rung up and I now had the most expensive organic granola bar known to man :)

It was made by a company called Eat Green Foods. They are based here out of Chicago and use local farmers for all that goes into their products. That is something I like to hear and now I feel a little better knowing my $3 went to a good cause! Check out the ingredients:

Nothing but the basics! Hey, just like me!

Oh yeah...

Seriously, not what I would call a well balanced dinner. So, shoot me.

Tomorrow is a new day and I will be better. I have lots of leftovers in my fridge that need to be eaten so I will try to stop spending my money on food! Grrr!

My goal is to be in bed by 10pm and I only have 23 minutes to go! See you tomorrow!


  1. Hey, I've bought $3 bars before! Yours looks really good too!

    I try to drink alot of water throughout the say too -- and the more I drink the more thirsty I get too, what is the deal with that?

  2. Water was a hard, hard habit for me to get into but it's all I drink now....when I drink other stuff now, it's just not that good to me. But let me tell you, it took A LONG time to get here!!

  3. You're not crazy. Water does that to you. When you finally are getting enough water, your body starts craving it. That's a good thing. :)
