Well what a day this has shaken out to be.
This morning I got news that a friend of mine passed away very suddenly yesterday -- a blood clot in his lung. He was just a year older than me. We aren't really close these days -- in fact, it's been probably three years since I've seen him -- but he was a big part of my life in university. I feel awful for his friends and family, but I also keep thinking -- man, you just never know. It sounds cliche to say it but life is really short.
We're also in the midst of dealing with ... I cringe just to say it ... a bit of a flea problem at our house. Actually, I've only seen three of four, but that's more than enough for me. We got Riley and the 2 cats on Advantage right away, and we spent tonight spraying the bed and sofa with a flea killer, and the rest of the house with lemon juice. I'm still filled with paranoia though. I mean, seriously. FLEAS. *shudder*
With both those things weighing on my mind today, I really struggled with food. Yesterday I said this wasn't hard but today it was. Today I walked into Starbucks and stared REALLY HARD at the scones. I thought about how good a cookie or a caramel frappucino would make me feel. I thought about how nice it would be to drink a glass of wine after work. I mean, I deserved it after such a shit day, right?
In the end I didn't do any of these things. But I wanted to.
Breakfast: Pork and apple quiche, again.
Lunch: salad from Freshii, with mixed greens, chicken, egg slices, carrots, tomatoes, beets, and dates, plus plain balsamic vinegar and olive oil for dressing. I added almonds when I got back to the office because I swear they didn't actually put any olive oil on it. I mean, how lame does this salad look?
Mid-afternoon pick-me-up: Iced coffee with coconut milk.
Dinner: Salad with spinach, cabbage, pork loin, and some leftover curry sauce as a dressing. It was 9pm by the time I sat down to eat and I forgot to snap a picture. Couldn't finish my salad though.
Going to drink some more water and maybe eat a few cherries and then have a shower and try not to think about fleas. Tomorrow should be better because I have the day off and I'm hanging out with Katie and we're getting pedicures and going swimming in our underwear at her condo pool. Yessssss.
