I’m an adult?

Oh hiiiii! Long time no see – that’s what having a REAL JOB will do to you! But I’m absolutely LOVING it, every part. I’m like, a real person everyone. I have a commute. A long one. WIth lots of traffic and 24 exits. But you know what? I kind of like that too (minus the estimated one mile per gallon that my elderly safari vehicle gets. Her name is Marge, because she is large and in charge. Sitting in my car singing along to the radio is nice. It’s alone time.

Yesterday after work I met a friend and her boyfriend for dinner. A garden salad with ginger dressing, a brown rice eel roll, a brown rice shrimp and avocado roll, and vegetable gyoza were consumed but unphotographed. I was home at 9, asleep at 9:30, and awake at 7:30. Believe me, I needed that Motrin PM, 10-hour coma. I had SO much energy today and another GREAT day at work.

In the interest of time and my to-do list:

  • Blog
  • Pack lunch
  • Shower
  • Snack
  • Blog reading/commenting
  • Sleep

today will be brought to you by 3 “f”s. Starting with:

FOOD (random highlights, by no means everything I have eaten in the last three days):

Mixed greens, broccoli, BBQ chicken, sweet potato, green beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, BBQ sauce.

Kashi Heart to Heart, almond milk, nectarine.

Cantaloupe & cottage cheese.

Trader Joe’s Veggie Roll Up with Hummus

Amy’s Breakfast Burrito
, English muffin
with two fried eggs, cantaloupe. And yes, this was dinner, not breakfast.

This WAS breakfast: Spinach & feta omelet (I have perfected the omelet, it’s true!), Alvarado St. Bakery Sprouted Whole Wheat toast, nectarine.

BEST DINNER I’VE HAD IN A WHILE: mixed greens with mushrooms, avocado, broccoli (which I forgot about until after I started eating), and TJ’s cilantro dressing; Stew Leonard’s multigrain toast, oven-baked sweet potato with cottage cheese. I’m a genius for assembling this dinner at 8pm after work, shopping, commuting, and gymming.

California Coral
by Essie. My favorite color ever. Perfect for summer.

I have some posts planned for the next few days on packing lunches and snacks, time management, more clothes, and more nail polish. I’m going to cross as much as I can off the to-do list. Goodnight!

  1. Lol! It’s great to hear that you’re enjoying your job, girl! I was the same way when I started getting back into the real world. Absolutely loved it, even if I was sitting in traffic. It’s just nice to be out there and “normal”.

    • Brynne said:

      Yes, exactly! I actually am going to start taking the train in – even more like a real person! Plus time to read and eat breakfast while NOT driving.

  2. Well, if you can’t be a CA girl, you can have the nail polish – cute!

    Glad you are trying to balance your busy day. You’ll get in a groove in no time.

  3. Soooo happy you love the new job girl! šŸ™‚ And I desp need to get that nailpolish color. And your nails & cuticles while I am at it LOL! xoxo
