Thank GOD it’s Thursday! Three hours of work tomorrow stand between me and the weekend. Too bad it will be filled with homework!
I had my alarm set for 5 a.m. to go to cycling this morning, but I wasn’t feeling up to it because of the slight pain that is still present in my legs. Instead, I took it easy and stuck to an hour on the elliptical.
More time to enjoy breakfast!
Voluminous oat bran with peanut butter and Kashi Go Lean Crunch. SUCH a good addition! I normally don’t have anything crunchy in my oats, so this was a great topping.
Lunch was kabocha, eggs, and a new hummus I found at Fresh and Easy- lemon cilantro. I think I’ve found a new favorite hummus. It tastes like the rice at Chipotle! I am not kidding. Must…recreate…immediately.
I also bought pumpkin yesterday! Yogurt just ain’t the same without pumpkin and cinnamon Cheerios. I used the last of mine today. Rest in peace, Cheerios- may you go on sale very, very soon!
Apple with chocolate PB after lunch-
And tofu chocolate mousse with cookies for a snack! Geez, you would think I had a major sweet tooth or something…
I tried to balance out the sweets with a tofu / bean / spinach salad that I brought to work. Unfortunately, I was so full from my snacks that I never ate it! IT was one of those days when sugar > vegetables. It happens.
Not pictured- a few spoonfuls of batter and frosting. We celebrated my friend’s birthday tonight, and I made cupcakes!
Since once of my weekly goals is to drink 64 oz of water a day, I’ve been chugging water all day. Unfortunately, I had one of those ‘too much too soon’ moments and spent ten frantic minutes at work praying for my co-worker to come back so I could pee! There’s a reason I try to space out my water consumption throughout the day, and that will always be known as the ‘Copenhagen Incident.’
The last time I was in Europe, I was on a cruise ship with a friend. The day we disembarked, I filled up my huge water bottle and drank as much water as I could to avoid having to buy a disposable bottle of water before we flew to Rome.
Two hours after we got off the ship, I was innocently admiring the statue of the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen with my friend when I was suddenly hit with that oh my god I really have to pee all of a sudden urge.
Here’s how the conversation went:
Me: ‘I really have to pee all of a sudden- can we find a bathroom?’
Friend: ‘Sure, there should be one around here- maybe at the train station.’
(20 minutes and a wrong turn later)
Me: ‘Did we pass the train station?! I’m getting really desperate!’
Friend: ‘I think we’re closer to the hotel- let’s just go back there and you can use the bathroom in our room.’
(20 minutes later)
Me: (getting frantic) ‘I can’t wait until we get back to the hotel! I am about to wet my pants!!’
Friend: ‘We’ll be there in five minutes- stop thinking about it!’
Me: ‘I AM SERIOUSLY ABOUT TO WET MY PANTS!!!’
Friend: ‘I don’t know you…’
Me: ‘I AM GOING TO SIT DOWN IN THE STREET AND PEE!’
Friend: ‘People are looking at us! Shut up!’
Me: ‘I CAN’T HOLD IT ANY LONGER!’
Friend: ‘Why didn’t you go when were in the hotel?!’
Me: ‘I DIDN’T HAVE TO GO THEN!’
Friend: (consulting map) ‘We’re near a museum- go inside and see if they have a bathroom.’
And that, friends, is the story of how I ran a mile in 3 minutes and nearly wet my pants before peeing in a bathroom at the National Museum in Copenhagen.
Lesson learned- don’t drink all your water at once 🙂
Spill! Where’s the weirdest place you’ve peed in public?
