Downer Debbie

Today is Monday, my 3rd consecutive day off from work. I gotta admit that I am loving the downtime. I woke up this morning feeling pretty darn good. I have decided that I'm not going to feel down on myself anymore. You have no clue how bad I want to workout, but I committed myself a couple days of relaxation. I'm so worried that if I keep at the pace I was going my legs are going to crack again and I'll be back in the same long recovery boat as last time. One thing I will say is that all this time to myself and being home has not resulted in the healthiest food choices.

Today started out with a bowl of Ezekiel cereal with my new So Delicious Coconut milk:

In a matter of just a few days I have become a "Twilight" addict. I bought the first book on Friday night just because I wanted something imaginative to read. I finished it last night. Since I was not at all a bit sleepy I went and bought the movie and the second book "New Moon".

I did a bit of shopping at Whole Foods. I really wanted their General Tsau's chicken from the hot bar, but they had sweet and sour instead. I've really been craving sandwiches lately but have avoided making them. 1) no cold-cuts, and 2) I'm trying to limit and eventually completely eliminate meat. So I found some Tofurkey, and ham flavored tofu slices, I also got some "sausage" links for when I'm feeling German and wanting a bratwurst.

For dinner I made an awesome black bean chipotle veggie-burger on Ezekiel bun. I forgot to picture, it was pretty good. I forgot to cover the patty in the microwave so it was a bit dry. Nothing kethup could help fix though.

Also while at Whole Foods I stopped in their wine shop. Made myself friendly with the man working in there. In that entire wine shop they only had 1 bottle of Red Zinfandel. I got it, and drank it while I finished up my last 200 pages of Twilight. I spent the entire day reading on my balcony. It was glorious, the wine was decent enough. Not my favorite Red Zin by far, but I still managed to drink up almost the entire bottle. Oh, and I seemed to lose all my wine keys from Carrabbas. At first I was about to go back to WH to buy one, but I remembered packing up my Swiss Army knife the other day. Haha, how clever of me. I do think I'm quite resourceful. By the end of it, I couldn't even concentrate on the first chapter of New Moon, so I hit the sack.


  1. This made me laugh, you got a man to buy you a bottle, haha you are so smooth. You are on the Twilight boat aye? I didn't like the movie one bit but the books I am madly in love with. Well keep taking it easy, I love you and I am proud of you.

  2. i love ezekiel cereal!!!
    that wine is DELICIOUS- but i'm a fan of all red wine :D
    have a great day!
