Mine was rather fantastic, after I dealt with a few, erm, issues. To elaborate, I may or may not [read, I totally effing did] have dropped my phone into a big glass of water last night when I got to work.
Yeah, not my best move. At all. Since I was at work, I couldn’t do the “put it in a bag of dry rice” trick, and I didn’t get home until five hours after it happened. I tried it over night, but no luck ):
Fortunately, I have an insurance policy on my phone, and they’ll replace it [thank God!] because after two years of being a die-hard BlackBerry addict, I’m not ready to go to this:
I get the chills just looking at that. How do I tweet from my phone? Check my email? Google every question that pops into my head?! I want my BlackBerry back….
How about the positives of my day?
I wasn’t really feelin’ a run today, so I stuck with the 21 Day Yoga Challenge (so obsessed with this… I may never stop!) and then did a leg workout I found in Fitness magazine. I’ve done this once before, and SERIOUSLY my legs were sore for three days! Hopefully I’m stronger now so it won’t hit me so hard this time (;
I went to the wireless store early this morning. So early, in fact, they hadn’t even opened yet. I decided to kill a little time at Starbs with my favorite bev…
Venti Passion iced tea – best. possible. order. If I ever stray from this, it’s to an iced coffee… and we all know how that turned out.
When I got home, I knew the only thing that was gonna make me happier would be a nice simple breakfast [that statement made me sound like a brat. Sucksss.]
TJ’s High Fiber cereal with almond milk mixed with a scoop of vanilla Sun Warrior protein powder. And since I’ve had one of those killerrrr peaches every single day since I got home, I had to slice one up and top the cereal with it! Yumssss.
No picture of lunch today, but I’ve got somethin’ even bettaahhh. COOKIEEEES!
– 1 c whole wheat flour
– 1/4 c Sucanat [I used 3T of brown sugar]
– 1/4 tsp sea salt
– 3 T Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate cocoa powder (regular works as well, but dark tastes amazing)
– 1/2 c (2 oz) salted roasted peanuts, chopped [omitted]
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 tsp baking soda.
– 1/4 c + 2 T agave nectar [used honey instead]
– 1 tsp vanilla
– 3 T canola oil [used Smart Balance instead]
– 1/3 c chocolate peanut butter (I used PB&Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams)
-addded in 1/2 dark chocolate chunks
The other day, my brother told me how much he liked dark chocolate, but didn’t understand why he liked it so much [weird, I know]. Anyways, he has a big lax tournament this weekend so I wanted to make something for him and my Dad cause they’ll both be super busy! Plus, this cookie included two of my fave things – peanut butter and dark chocolate. Let’s get crazy.
Fan. Tas. Tic. Plain & simple!
The rest of the day was super low key, just hung around and didn’t do much!
Since I didn’t have much of anything going on, I decided to post a tutorial/recipe situation… for one of my FAVE meals!
Perfect Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Serves 1 as a meal, 2 as a side
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 1T oil of choice (I use coconut, but olive is a favorite too!)
- Sprinkle of sea salt
First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. While it’s warming up, start slicing your sweet potato.
Cut into thin, uniform strips so that the fries will cook evenly (you’ll have a couple little nuggets, but don’t worry about it.)
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread sliced fries evenly across. Distribute oil over slices as evenly as possible. (Side bar, I used a spray bottle tonight, so I sprayed them while they were on the sheet. When using coconut oil, I’ll put all the wedges into a big mixing bowl and pour the oil over, just so it covers it a little more thoroughly.) When wedges are all oiled up [that sounds kinda gross] sprinkle them with a little bit of sea salt, just to taste, and remember you can always add more later!
I bake the fries for 25 minutes [at least], but I let them go to 30 once and most of them were burnt so be careful!
If all goes well, you’ll end up with this little beauty! A wholeeee plate of sweet tater fries and ketchup for dippinnn (:
Happy tummy ensued.
Oh right. Then this happened again.
So, for the first time since late August/early September (excluding the two weeks around Christmas) I won’t be going into work Saturday morning!!! During the year, Saturday mornings usually bring in all 8ish teachers on staff to handle the seven+ classes we teach in a span of less than four hours. Yeah. Busy busy bees! As much as I love my job, it’s gonna be nice to go at my own pace on a Saturday morning. Plus, it’s not like I’m entirely off on Saturday – I’ve got parties to work in the afternoon!
More excitement? I updated my Twitter background (:
And it was kind of an accident! Oh well, I like it now anyways!
Chocolate or vanilla?
Was I subtle enough in my questioning? (;
Have you ever worked weird hours?
My friends and I at work were exhausted after an eight hour shift… and then we realized that people with desk jobs work that every single day. Whooooops!
Hope yall have a great night!
