Good afternoon, friends and neighbors!!
It was rough to go back to work today after a wonderful weekend. In case you missed anything:
- My Katy Perry-like Friday Night
award-winningRecipe for Chocolate Crack: S’mores Style
- Six Pack Sunday
I’ll admit, I spent lots of time at home this weekend, being a little homebody. That’s because the next two weekends will be spent on planes, trains, and automobiles (literally), heading to the Healthy Living Summit in Philadelphia (I fly in at 3:15!! And already have a double welcome wagon of Krissie and Ali!! Then, the next weekend, I fly BACK to Philly for my cousin’s bridal shower.
Oh yeah, and on Wednesday, August 24th, 2011, I TURN 24!!
In the meantime, I’ve got a busy week ahead of me. Lots of work, workouts, and a low-carb diet for the week that I’m trying out as I’ve been feeling fairly full and bloaty all weekend (due primarily to MANY carby snacks of fried goodies, too many Wheat Thins to count, Heath bar pancakes drenched in syrup (heavenly), a few too many cheddar biscuit samples at A Southern Season, and (of course) tacos and chips galore.
Time to cut back a little (though I’ll still enjoy my Fiber One 80 calorie cereal I just started enjoying for breakfast).
Today, when I came home for lunch, I spotted a sad, sad sight.
My poor basil plant took a tumble overnight, probably due to the Noah’s Ark-like downpour all evening…. Well, I flipped it right up, gave it some water, and I think got some good karma because then I did something I don’t think I’ve successfully done since I moved to this apartment.
Well, what happened next will be known as the Good Karma Omelet.
- 1 egg white, 1 egg base
- 1 handful of spinach, sauteed
- 1/5 of a green pepper, also sauteed
- 5 pieces of turkey pepperoni, sliced into thirds
- 1 slice of provolone cheese, melted
Slather that bad boy in Frank’s Red Hot, and you’ll taste all that good karma just filling up your belly.
For dessert, I enjoyed a fresh peach from my beau’s boss’ field!
I am sensing great things for the rest of the day. My plant is upright, my belly is full (but not with many carbs), and True Blood, like that peach, was good to the last drop.
Ha, vampire joke. Get it?
Good. For tolerating that silliness, here’s a sexy Eric and Sookie moment to enjoy.
Are you going to the Healthy Living Summit?
How did you earn some good karma today?
