Least Favorite Thing (all meals 03/31/09)

Ugh, today sucked. I went bathing suit shopping after work which is like my least favorite thing to do ever. Ever. I went to like 20 stores and shopped for like 3 hours (not exaggerating here) and surprise surprise, found nothing I liked. Poor Ryan was nice enough to go with me and put up with all of it, including all of my whining. What a sport. Boo.

Today didn’t start on such a horrible note. I had a lovely breakfast of 1/2 cup of organic plain non-fat yogurt, 3 large strawberries, and about 3/4 of a small banana:


Then I had a great mid-morning snack of 1 serving of soy crisps (110 calories)- I loved these! I’ll definitely be buying more after I finish this bag:


For lunch I had good intentions of heating up a can of Amy’s vegan split pea soup. But then a coworker asked if I wanted to go eat lunch in the park since it was nice-ish weather out (aka not raining or snowing or below zero). So instead I headed to Subway because I didn’t have any Tupperware to carry the soup in…I got my new usual which makes me not feel guilty about eating out because I think it’s actually quite healthy- 9 grain honey oat bread, turkey, and a TON of veggies topped with vinegar- NO MAYO OR CHEESE. Yay me!


I also had an orange:


After work was over it was time for the dreaded bathing suit shopping trip. Ugh. I knew dinner would be late so I grabbed an apple and a cliff kids Z-bar to hold me over:



After bathing suit shopping, I weighed my options for dinner.  Given my horrible experience and lack of success I decided I need to either starve myself or go to McDonalds. After thinking further and deciding that neither of these were healthy or appropriate options I went for a light and healthy dinner- smaller than I would normally have given that I kind of had part 1 of dinner with the apple and cliff kids Z-bar…I made myself turkey lettuce “sandwiches”- rommaine lettuce, some roasted pepper hummus, and deli turkey on top. This was enjoyed with some baby carrots:


And that’s all folks. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Actually today wasn’t bad- just the last part that involved bathing suit shopping was. I’m going to bed- Ryan has promised me a nice long massage to make me feel better and I can’t refuse 🙂 Night!

Sorry about the lack of bathing suit success! Luckily it’s still early so there is plenty of time to find one worthy for you to wear 😉
Um, I got back last night exhausted and cranky and generally sad, and your package made me smile SO much. I can’t believe how thoughtful and generous you are. Can’t wait to dig into my goodies, too!
Hopefully we can catch up soon. xoxo

Oh no! Bathing suit shopping is the worst. I haven’t done it in 5 years. Yeah, I think it’s time to buy a new one 🙂 You’ll find one, I’m sure! Maybe get a few online and then just return the ones you don’t like? You may be in a less critical mood at home…
Hmm, I don’t think I’ve gotten a massage from Adam since we got married. I knew marriage would change things 😆

Lara- I’m so so glad you liked the package! I wish I had gotten to put in everything I got for you but the shipping just got crazy out of control 😦 Enjoy the treats 🙂
Oh, and unfortunately I don’t have too much time to get a bathing suit. I need one for south carolina and we are leaving tomorrow! and then for israel and i am leaving for that in like 2 weeks! boo.

elina- thanks for the sympathy 🙂 it just sucks working so hard and then not seeing what you want, you know? anyway the massage made me feel a lot better 🙂 Ryan used to give them to me ALL THE TIME when we first started dating but in the almost 6 years we’ve been together it’s gotten less and less frequent 😦

aww sorry about the bathing suit experience. this is totally weird, but i’m pretty okay with the bathing suit thing because i think i’ve already resigned myself to disappointment. but i get so upset over shopping for jeans. hate that.
anyway. hope you find something and in the end, it’s exciting that you have a reason to go bathing suit shopping! yay sun and tiger cubs! 🙂
