can’t catch a break.

Happy Earth Day AND Good Friday! The first service I ever went to at my church was on Good Friday and they called it the “Bad Friday” service because it’s actually a pretty bummer of a day when you really stop to think about it.  Easter is the good part!

After work last night, I went home and crashed into my bed.  I was so congested and could barely keep my eyes open!  I feel like I really can’t catch a break these days – between hurting my knee at the half marathon, vertigo, now the allergies; it seems like just one thing after another!  I hope I’m just getting it all out of my system now so I can have an illness-free summer!


I had an egg and cheddar bagelwich for dinner.  I was not hungry at all but that sounded pretty appetizing.

I curled up in bed to watch Despicable Me and fell asleep halfway through it!  That was the second time I’ve tried to watch it, but haven’t been able to stay awake through the whole thing.  Don’t let that indicate anything about the movie – it’s truly really cute and entertaining!

Since I learned the hard way I can’t take the Claritin at night, I took some Benadryl and got to bed early.  I woke up feeling a bit better today than I have the past couple days, so there’s progress!


Before I collapsed into bed for the night, I threw together a pumpkin breakfast cookie with:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • a couple hefty shakes of pumpkin pie spice

There was a bit too much milk – I should have only used 1/4 cup, maybe even less.  Otherwise, it was good!  The pumpkin flavor wasn’t too strong.  Perhaps in cutting down the milk, I could have used a bit more pumpkin.

I’m still working on the art of the breakfast cookie, apparently.


I had to be at work early this morning and I was in such a hurry to get out of the house that I left the lunch I planned on sitting in the fridge!  I hate when that happens!

I made a quick trip to the cafeteria across the street and grabbed a slice of cheese pizza.  I added a dash of some Sicilian seasoning to it.  Yum.

If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, pizza might just be it.

Tonight is another round of Dinner Club!
