Happy 4th of July everyone! How are you all spending this glorious holiday? Unfortunately, this chica isn't doing anything too exciting. Most of my friends are out of town for the weekend or are working....poo. I've been spending some quality time with the family this weekend, though. Yesterday, I went to see The Karate Kid with my pops and then we went out to dinner at UNO's. I had the BBQ chicken pizza. It was delic'! Sorry, no pics, but if you all head to UNO's, you can try the pizza for yourselves : )
Okay, Jayden Smith may not win any academy awards
anytime soon, but he sure is little cutie in this movie!
I spent some more time with my dad today. I went to run some errands with him and then we went downtown. We went to Breugger's for lunch, and I got a honey oat bagel with strawberry yogurt cream cheese. It was okay, but I probably wouldn't get it again. Oh, and I also had some Mott's apple sauce on the side. Afterwards, I did some shopping. I wanted to get some clothes for work, but I couldn't find anything. I did manage to snag this cute bowl, though. Score!
A little childish? Yes, but perfect for me--a little kid at heart
Later in the afternoon, I went and got ice cream with my dad and we took a walk along a local river. We had a good time, indeed!
In other news, my appointment with my nutritionist went pretty well. I was weighed and my weight did go up slightly. She would have liked to see it go up more, but she was pleased to see that I managed to gain a little bit despite being sick and recently starting a new--not to mention--active job. She didn't really change my meal plan much, but if my weight gain continues to slow down, I'm pretty sure a big cal increase is coming my way. This is definitely scary but I've come to accept that at times recovery is very scary; however, it is what is needed.
Anyways, I still don't have my camera. I did manage to snag a few phone pics, though. They aren't very high quality, but they are better than nothing, right?
Lunch one day--Lender's cinnamon raisin bagel w/ PB & Co.
Mighty Maple peanut butter & Laughing Cow wedge, sliced apples

Choice chocolate cookie
Morning Snack--Blueberry Crisp Clif Bar...yum!
Quick dinner--Kashi Southwest Style Chicken (Didn't like this...
some ketchup made it taste better, though...yes I'm weird, I know)
& Alexandria Whole Wheat and Flaxseed Roll w/ Laughing Cow
Sideways picture of my cute Vera Bradley lunchbox
Once again I apologize for my crappy phone pictures. I really need to get my camera back. I have just been so busy, though.
Okay, well I'm off to eat dinner with my family, play with some sparklers, and watch the fireworks on tv. Very lame 4th of July... I know. Tomorrow, I'm not really sure what my plans are. Hopefully, spend some time with my amigos, sleep in, more family time, TV marathons, outside time??? Time will tell. I do know one thing about tomorrow, though. It's supposed to be 93 degrees here....Holey Moley! Today, it's 87 and I feel like I'm going to melt. And then Tuesday, it's back to work. Although work is really long and busy, I love it!
One more thing before I go...I've been thinking a lot about the 4th of July and how it is a celebration of the United States breaking away from England. We celebrate the holiday because a lot of hard work went into gaining independence from oppressive England. Just like the United States had to work extremely hard to gain independence from England, I have to work extremely hard to gain independence from Ed. Just a thought.
Happy Independence Day!
