What I Ate Wednesday #12: A Taste of Unemployment

Yesterday morning I got a taste of what unemployment is going to feel like, and SPOILER ALERT, it was great.  I had a doctors appointment at 10:40am, so technically, I could have/should have gone into the office from 9-10 and then to the appointment, but feeling bold, I told my boss I wouldn’t be in until after, around noon. BAM.

I didn’t need to leave the house until 10am! I slept in, made coffee the real way, and even had time to feed and pet the Kevins before heading out.

I mean…. what?

On a side note, what are the chances my boss actually believed I had a doctors appointment and not a job interview? The answer to that is definitely “slim”. Why is that satisfying?

Ready for a full rundown of all the things I ate yesterday?  The anticipation is just too much, I can tell. Here we go…

WIAW

9:30am – Bulletproof coffee, made the right way (in the blender) at home.

news and coffee

12:30pm – Lunch: TJ’s “Roasted Butternut Squash, Red Quinoa and Wheatberry” Salad (pretty good, despite the golden raisins that were NOT advertised on the front)

lunch

4:00pm – Afternoon fruit snack: Fuji apple w/ TJ’s Sunflower seed butter

fruit

WORKOUT – 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical and a quick arms workout (10 push ups, 10 tricep dips: repeat 3 times)

8:30pm – I swear I don’t usually eat more than one Trader Joe’s salad in a single day, but after working out last night, Andrew’s uneaten Pasadena Salad seemed like a much faster/easier option than anything else in the fridge.  Plus, it was going to expire, so I didn’t really have a choice.  I made some sweet potato wedges to go with it, for good measure.

dinner

9:15pm – Freezer Fudge (TJ’s sunflower seed butter, coconut oil, honey, chocolate chips. Recipe here)

What DIDN’T I eat (Wednesday)? This too-beautiful-to-destroy USC cake, seen during an afternoon walk around the Lot.
