Today was a very rough day. Rough food, rough work, rough headache. I attempted to start the day off right with a Monsta, but alas, there was not enough spinach, so instead I went for another set of…
WAFFLES! Blueberry waffles with agave-maple syrup, and coffee!
I got to work and wasn’t feeling too hot. Well, actually I was feeling very hot. The A/C at work has been broken for a few months and today, it was really getting to me. Excessive heat makes me feel dizzy and sick. Since I wasn’t at the top of my game, I decided comfort food would be a good choice for lunch. Unfortunately, comfort food = ridiculously unhealthy food. I went for what I was craving yesterday.
HORRIBLE! I had a single entree of orange chicken, which is basically deep-fried fat tossed in a sugary syrup. Awful for me, but it made me feel better.
After lunch, I didn’t meet up with a friend who didn’t convince me to go get cookies. I didn’t stop at Mrs. Fields to get thirteen bite-size cookies, and didn’t get a variety that included chocolate chip, macadamia nut, oatmeal raisin and M&Ms. I didn’t finish the entire bag by the end of the day. I totally didn’t do any of that. That would be madness.
The painkillers finally kicked in and the headache abated, just in time for me to head home. I decided not to break the unhealthy streak and dug into some leftover thai food that the roommates had ordered in.
Pad thai and pineapple fried rice. There was no pineapple left – that happens to be my roommate’s favorite part.
Now, I’m resting comfortably while blogging, and I’ve started to dip my toes into my latest book Up in the Air by Walter Kirn. It’s a slow starter, but I have high hopes. After I’m finished, I’ll be (finally) renting the movie! I’m just a tad behind on all the movies that have been coming out. The last movie I saw in theaters was Avatar. Yeah, it’s pretty bad.
I realized I forgot to include some pictures of my roommate’s hat from the races, and I have a few others to add on to add some color to this post.
She titled this: “Avatar Upon My Head” – the flowers have battery-operated lights in them!
I got a gift yesterday from my pops who was in Arizona last week.
Earrings! I’m obsessed with dangly earrings!
These are my favorites :). I wore them to work today so I could feel fancy while also headachy.
And to end the day…
An ocean camera blocked by a seagull butt. I found this when I was checking out the Del Mar ocean cam two days ago, and it has made my week.
I’m off to work again tomorrow – unfortunately becoming my Sunday tradition instead of church :(. Uncool. What Sunday traditions do you have?

First of all those earrings are awesome! I love dangly earrings too!
On Sundays my husband and I usually have a bigger breakfast together like pancakes or eggs/turkey bacon. We then go to church and have some lazy time afterward. Usually the afternoon would consist of a walk or bike ride. I love Sundays 🙂
i've got those earrings too! i blogged about them here:
@Katie @ Healthy Heddleston

@the actor's diet
So cool! We're twins :). I'm in love with these earrings. I'll check with my pops to see where exactly he got these. I keep playing with them and I'm afraid the threads will break!
