Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be

That is one of my favorite lines of Eat Pray Love...and God is good because while I was feeling upset and wiping the tears from my eyes last night, I decide to read a few "chapters" and this came just in the nick of time....

"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master..."


Thank you for reading my last post...I was really feeling down and just had to express myself. I was planning to just stay home and sulk all day, which would have been bad cause when I am down I GET DOWN and I had to stop it before it started. I peeled myself out of bed and just tried to shake it off....and here I am at work...fun times (((( insert sarcasm here)))). I think what really bothered me from what happened was that in one breath he is telling me that he misses me and that we should hang out, and down right flirting...he said something like we need to sit on opposite sides of the room so he could "behave" and in the next breath he is telling me that he is in love blah blah. Of course I am still upset because I am only human but I will try to focus on the good things in my life and move on...


Let's get down to business:

Ayer for lunch I ordered a salad from Press 195 and I really did not enjoy it that much. I ended up just picking at it and tossed most of it out...It was the Chicken Citrus Salad which is mixed greens with Grilled Lemon Chicken (it was cold and did not taste like lemon, in my opinion), Goat Cheese, Fresh Orange, Caramelized Walnuts and a Cranberry Citrus Dressing...I hate vinaigrette dressings and this was definitely vinaigrette based. I just ate the Oranges, Walnuts, some of the Cheese and barely any of the Chicken, oh and scraped off all the carrots (not a fan of carrots on salads)


For Din Din I went to TGIF with my sis, niece, and little sister to celebrate their first day of school. I obviously was not in the mood to go out but I had to just do it and get in the mood for their sake. I barely had an appetite so I just ordered a Bowl of French Onion Soup and ate 2 1/2 pieces of the Jack Daniels Sesame Chicken Strips. "Thank you Jenn (sister) for treating me and I am sorry for being such crappy company and not even noticing when that guy was checking me out and you had to point it out lol"

When I got home, I worked out for 1 hour...I jogged with my Wii Fit for 30 minutes, 15 mins of abs, and 15 mins of Yoga stretches and burned 449 Calories

This morning I forced myself to get out of bed and workout. I did EA Active for 45 minutes and burned 337 Calories.

For Breakfast I had Oikos Honey Yogurt with 1 Banana and tbsp of PB, and my usual Coffee

For Lunch I just ordered from Pita Pan (shocker ha). I got the Cobb Salad which has Tomatoes, Avocado, Mushrooms, Roasted Peppers, Bacon, and Blue Cheese. I also got a side of Gyro Meat (didn't eat all of it). Once again this salad was so amazing that did not even open the side of dressing.

Together

They have great food but they need to work on their Customer Service. First, last time they sent me the wrong Pita and now today when I placed my order; the total was 9.80 and the girl told me the minimum is 10 Dollars for delivery...wow 20 cents short...I ended up ordering a diet Pepsi which I didn't even want. My food gets here and guess what is missing...The damn soda. I didn't even want this crap but she made a point to make me order something since I WAS 20 cents short so you know I had to call back and complain because you know me and the "principle" behind it lol

Remember I said I needed a needed "a emotional, I feel bad for the next person that crosses me day..." maybe I should have stayed home after all ha

One again THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for being the outlet that I need when life becomes too much to handle...you are all amazing!

Namaste...
