Since I work in the media, I tend to think I talk for a living. When I’m outside of work, it’s incredibly hard to get me to shut up. Try and get a word in, I dare you. So I tend to think that I talk as a hobby as well. I’ve even been told that I talk in my sleep!
Needless to say, my jaws are always flappin’. I’m a true Chatty Cathy.
That’s why the stretch from Friday afternoon to today has been really tough for me. I have laryngitis – but it’s almost gone. I’ve never had it before, and I can’t say I want it again after this . My voice cracks … or sounds incredibly manly … or won’t be there at all … or I sound like a Mickey Mouse impersonator. Sucky. I’m glad it’s getting better now. I was starting to compare my voice to the likes of an overly emotional cartoon character.
Today’s What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by the always wonderful Jenn over at Peas and Crayons, was eaten right in the midst of my laryngitis spell (Monday). I was feeling completely fine, not sick at all … so my meals didn’t change. It was just a very quiet day.
I ate this while
staring at Mariah Carey’s hot bod reading the latest issue of Shape. In that bowl is oatmeal, chia seeds, chocolate whey protein powder, and a spoonful of coconut oil (gotta love those healthy fats!). The oil is melting … so I apologize if it looks a little bit strange. I can assure you it was delicious though!
I ate this plateful at home while watching Ellen (has anyone else seen her segment where Tony sings karaoke? Hilarious!). I put spinach, hummus, turkey, and mustard on a multigrain bagel thin. A large handful of carrots on the side made lunch wonderfully colorful Not pictured: 2 clementines, which might just be the cutest fruit ever.
Lunch Number 2:
I considered this my second (and completely unnecessary) lunch because it was SO filling. And I also felt like crap after drinking it due to the oodles and oodles of sugar in it. My coworker and I took advantage of the Starbucks Frappucino Happy Hour and tried the new Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino. Holy cannoli. If you’re okay with having a
minor major sugar hangover, I suggest this bad boy.
I had a friend in town, and she suggested we go for sushi before she left. Excellent idea! It was an all you can eat restaurant … we got a little crazy. I had a seaweed salad (my absolute favorite!), edamame, salmon and snapper sashimi, gyoza, and various pieces of salmon sushi, spicy tuna sushi, and a crispy California roll. So. Much. Food.
I also tried a piece of unagi … just for Ross.
Who doesn’t think of Friends when they hear the word unagi? It’s impossible for me.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
