Do you ever spend Sunday night dreading Monday so badly that when it actually comes, it’s never as bad as you’d thought? That happens to me every single week. You’d think I’d learn by now. I’m not sure why I get the Sunday blues so badly, but I do. Anyway, now that it’s actually Monday night, I feel much better.
It was bound to happen. After eating an egg sandwich nearly every morning for the past six months or longer, I got sick of them. So I attempted to make oatmeal. I am oatmeally challenged. I did it on the stove top because everyone says that it tastes better than in the microwave. I used 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup skim milk, a pinch of salt and half a banana. The oats were too watery (or milky, rather) and although they weren’t bad, they were just sort of meh. My other problem with the oatmeal was that it was too hot. That’s my fault since I’m always in such a hurry in the mornings, but I burned the top of my mouth. I even stuck the bowl in the freezer for a second to no avail. I always read about these great oatmeal concoctions that people are making. What’s the secret??
Unfortunately, dinner was not much better. I made an old standby, a tortilla pizza, but it was sub-par.
The problem was definitely the crust. I’m normally a fan of La Tortilla brand tortillas but bought another brand (Ole) on a whim. Well, not a whim, but they were cheaper. They were not better. Live and learn. I also had some roasted broccoli and artichokes on the side.
After dinner, Jason and I went to the gym. I did the p90x chest and back workout there. That worked out really well since I was able to use the assisted pull up machine for the pull up exercises. I spent about 45 minutes there. I am really looking forward to the day when I can do real push ups! Jason completed a 20 minute run as part of the Couch to 5K. Yay Jason. I’m looking forward to running a 5K with him on April 24th.
