Case of the Monday’s

I do not get sick very often and to be honest, I still can’t quite figure out if I’m officially sick yet or not, but I ended up leaving work early because I felt so bad.  As soon as I got home I took a nap till about 7:30. I’m feeling better but still congested. This is not the week to be sick at work and it’s only Monday so I’m trying to drink plenty of fluids and I will definitely be hitting the bed early tonight. I had originally planned to go to spin class this morning but when my alarm went off at 5:30 am I was not feeling it. Not getting a work-out in today kind of stinks but I don’t want to push myself, especially this early on in the work week. I had planned to make a turkey meat loaf with roasted red peppers and a salad for dinner tonight, but that got postponed as well and instead I ended up making some boxed Thai noodles from Trader Joes instead. I made Chris a frozen dinner pizza and my meal was ready in about 15 minutes with minimal prep and effort. (Isn’t this supposed to be a cooking blog too??) Let’s chalk this up to bad timing and here is an example of what I have to eat when I don’t cook 😦

I cooked up some broccoli and shrimp to add to the rice noodles. Gotta get those veggies in there somewhere!

I just recently started eating Thai food and I have to say the peanut flavor and mild spices in tonight’s dinner was interesting and refreshing. I’m glad I added the shrimp and broccoli because I was hungrier than I thought.

On another note, I made the Green Monster smoothie and let me tell you, it’s phenom! I ended up putting a banana, 1 cup milk, a scoop of whey protein powder (vanilla flavored), ice and 2 cups spinach. You couldn’t even taste the spinach! It kept me full all morning long.  Too bad it was kinda all down hill after that…

I am going to watch The Bachelorette and then going to bed. Hope everyone else had a better Monday and I really am going to try and get some actual running talk and some cooking in this blog once again! Cross your fingers that Tuesday is better!
