Today’s Workouts: The Slump

The day was shaping up to be all productive and shit. I’d packed my salad for lunch:

Knowing that I’d need to go to the store on my lunch break to pick up a few things, I did my desk peddler… Then at the end if the day, I was just done. I didn’t want to cook anything but of course I had to eat dinner. I spent the entire ride home wondering how easy I could make dinner and settled on pasta.


I know it’s basically a carb overdose but I kept the portion reasonable and added the cheese for fun. Something about this whole week has just not been great in terms of being motivated. I hope next week is better since I’m getting on the treadmill again.

Today’s Workout: And an affordable dinner.



Since I am taking care of a teenager who did not see a bag of chips and a jar of salsa as a snack but as a meal (I am still dumbfounded they finished the whole thing) I used my lunchtime to walk over to the store to see if I can find some on sale. It was a beautiful day, I didn’t even need a sweater so, I had a nice quick walk. And, I was able to replenish my supplies.


I made chicken thighs over the weekend so I chopped one up and put in a tortilla with some cheese. I got the tortillas for 2 for $5, I got the salsa 2 for $4, the cheese for 2 for $4, and the chips for 2 for $5. I don’t math so it’s just a filling cheap meal, okay? And to spice things up, I sprinkled Tajin in the salsa.

Is a plate of carbs and cheese healthy? Not really… But hey, it was quick, tasty, enjoyable, and I didn’t break the bank at the grocery store. And heck, I likely burned off half the cheese walking to the store.

If I can keep the kid from eating the chips and salsa in one sitting, it will last awhile, too.
