excuse my lack of header. I’m going to re-do it. It was ugly. I wish I could pay someone to make me one.
I have a confession: I’m worn out. Some days I really wish I worked from home.
We have been insanely busy at work. It’s a good thing, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like I’m always playing catch up. I’m never caught up with anything, and that is a bad feeling. My normal work schedule is 9-5, or 9-4, depending on the day. Today I went in @ 8:15 because I feel like I’m not getting enough done.
We are seeing patients every day this week, which is good, but again, I’m not getting a whole lot done. It’s just me in the office. This means, I, register, bill, vitals, assist, schedule, do referrals. You name it, I do it. We’ve gotten 4 new referrals this week, and I’ve scheduled numerous CT scans/aspirations/other Dr. appts. I love my job, I really do, but OMG I’m beat.
I’m ready for the weekend. I can’t believe it’s only Thursday tomorrow, it definitely feels like Friday to me.
Today is a rest day. Fine, I was supposed to do some upper body stuff but I opted not to. I’m in the process of cleaning the house instead. It’s a Wreck, with a capital W.
I had some chicken in the fridge that needed to be used so with a quick googling of chicken stir fry I came up with THIS recipe and got to work.
When I cook, unless I’m baking, I rarely follow the actual measurements. I mean c’mon, 1 cup of broccoli. I don’t want to measure out a cup of broccoli. I tend to just chop until I think it looks like enough. I always end up with a lot of vegetables. Nothing wrong with that, right? We are ballers on a budget so if I make extra that means we will have leftovers for lunch tomorrow! (My budget thanks me).
But, since I don’t measure out things my frying pans tend to look like this:
Seriously? How many people am I feeding here? Oh, and there was some white rice in a separate pot. Chris likes white rice with stir fry, I skipped out. #bikinibodychallenge.
The good news there will definitely be lunch tomorrow from that mess of veggies & chicken. I must admit it was pretty dang tasty too!
It was pretty easy. The worst part was chopping up all the broccoli, celery, onion, green peppers & carrots.
The other good news: I used my last green pepper, the rest of the chicken, and I’m almost out of broccoli. I’ll pack the rest in Chris’ lunch tomorrow for a snack.
I am happy to report that I’ve weeded out all the crackers/cookies that I was packing in Chris’ lunch. They’ve been replaced by fruits/veggies, and healthier crackers. Some flatbread things I bought from Publix. I didn’t like them, but he likes them. He either likes them or he throws them away every day. Ha Ha
According to the running schedule I made for this week I am due to run 7 miles tomorrow. I didn’t put a pace down. I think I’ll try to do 3.5 @ half-marathon race pace, which is 8:46.
I hope my legs will be well rested and I’ll have a successful run. After the half marathon I am going to seriously start research running. It’s becoming quite obvious that I know very little about what I’m doing, and what I should be doing. I might become BFF with Runnersworld.
Happy Hump Day Y’all
