The day has actually been good, in spite of my state of zombiness. It’s been busy so the hours have flown by…..I went out for some fresh air during my lunch break and walked to the bank to get some new checks, but other than that, I’ve been a busy bee.

I did find time to eat not one, but two cookies that my co-worker brought up from a meeting, and as a bonus, a brownie. What the cuss? Yesterday it was Cinnabons, and I totally resisted. Today, it was cookies and brownies, and I waved the white flag without even putting up a fight. Seriously though, when I’m tired, I feel like eating whatever, and usually I do.

Lunch: Leftover half of my chicken burrito from Chiptole.
Afternoon snack: Peanut butter and agave sandwich
Dinner: Lucas made a couscous salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, lemon juice, pinenuts, green onion, fresh mint, olive oil, salt, pepper) and of course, couscous. I think I may have had couscous only a couple of times in my life, and it’s been ages since the last time I ate it. I forgot how amazingly delicious it is. There’s nothing else like it in terms of taste and texture. Phenomenol.
