Woke up at 8:30 so I could have ample time to get ready and look presentable for my orientation. Breakfast involved a Blueberry Bliss Luna Bar, and a cup of almond milk. I can't believe I've never tried that before. Almond milk is so delicious, it tastes about 50 times better than soy and less calories. It has a bit less protein, but let me just say this, WOW. Work seems simple enough. They made me fill out some paperwork and gave me a book to look over. I start tomorrow night.
Made it to the post office to mail Claudia a package of some goodies I picked up for her. Unfortunately, there is no Whole Foods or any remotely healthy grocery stores where we are from. So I sent her some stuff that she has been wanting to try, and her x-mas gift that I forgot when I flew down there in December.
I made it to the gym, I really pushed it out on the cross-trainer. I was super sweaty and dead tired when I got off after an hour. Normally in an hour I burn an average of 650 calories. Today it was almost 800. I made it home just in time to catch the latest episode of Burn Notice that I missed on Wednesday.
After my workout I talked to Ris, I was feeling so dizzy and shaky. I am completely out of fruit so I need to go shopping here in a few days. I think I was feeling like that because I have cut out pretty much all processed foods and sugars. So I grabbed another Luna. About an hour later I had a one cup of this Cambells healthy select soup. it was decent. Im saving the last half of the can for tomorrow.
I FINALLY put away that dreaded laundry. I think there is a belt loose in my dryer because its taking a bit longer to dry my clothes than usual.
Dinner was completely amazing. I've been creating this recipe in my head so I decided to try it out tonight. I was really scared it would turn out bad, and he would think I'm a horrible cook.

It was honestly one of the best dishes I've ever made. It also was really quick to prepare. I swear I love my Magic Bullet. He really liked it too, so that made me happy. After he left I got everything in the kitchen all cleaned up, and now I'm all ready for bed.
