A ricey day

Alright, breakfast looked exactly like yesterday’s but involved just one slice of bread with the peanut butter… I also had an unpictured pear at about 9:30 when I was starting to get hungry again.

Lunch was something different though (finally, right?). I took more of that brown rice, tossed in some black beans that need eating, and some of the grilled veggies from Saturday night (all things that need eating sooner rather than later)

I tossed the black beans and rice with some Mrs Dash chipotle seasoning for a slight kick. Yum! I think you can expect to see this again in the next day or two 🙂

Dinner Hubz texted me just before I got off work to ask if I wanted Chinese for dinner. I decided to try shrimp fried rice this time. I had this much:

Which left his much of a dent in the package:

It didn’t occur to me until after I’d started eating that I’d already had rice today… Oh well. Notice anything missing? I think I could have gone for a few more veggies and shrimps. I’ve been unimpressed with their chow mein and low mein… I think this might be off my list.

I was trying to talk myself into getting a run in this afternoon but ended up nodding off before even finishing a paragraph of Eat, Pray, Love. I’m really trying not to feel guilty about skipping it, but I think that amount of sleepiness is a reason to opt out. Maybe I’ll try tomorrow or just wait for Fridays.

I did get a good stretch last night from a 30 minute Yoga Journal podcast. I did their evening sequence which is great for the hips and all about the gentle stretch. That counts for something, right?

While waiting on dinner to arrive I actually finished Eat Pray Love. I don’t feel like I’ll remember the last few chapters very well, but that’s okay. I really enjoyed it and appreciate that she isn’t preachy though some of her spiritual experiences stretch the imagination a bit if you haven’t had one yourself. It’s kind of hard to believe it to be a memoir instead of fiction. I recommend it.
