Since work is a little slower today, I decided to do a short post on my lunch break. I work as a technical writer, so it’s not like writing on my lunch break is a bad idea, right? I heated up my lunch (Smart Ones Lasagna Florentine) and already finished it, and you can definitely tell that tomorrow is payday because there’s a line at the microwave in the break room, haha.
I’ll probably have a Greek yogurt later- I’ve been craving it all week long! I think my body just needs more protein to keep up with the running and lifting (according to DailyMile, I’ve already run 77 miles this month). I found the Chobani Apple Cinnamon yogurt the other day and it is *delish*! If you haven’t tried it, you definitely should, and I’m hoping for another 10/$10 Chobani sale soon so I can stock up.
As for me, I had a pretty good weekend. My parents came to visit on Saturday and stayed for about an hour, always great to see the parents. Clay and I also voted in the Republican primary here in SC, and although we weren’t too thrilled with the results (okay, so we were very unhappy with results), it was nice to be a part of the election process. Both of us are pretty middle-of-the-road and vote for the candidate, not the party. I’m just glad the primary is over here so I can watch the news without being bombarded with political advertisements.
We spent Saturday night with a bunch of our friends over at our friend Ashley’s house, where we played board games and ate lots of yummy snacks and goodies.
We played 80s Trivial Pursuit, and I defended my grandma reputation for knowing more headlines/events answers than anything else.
And of course, we hung out and took lots of pictures :).
I’ll probably relax and take it easy until Saturday morning, when it’s time for the Polar Bear 5K race. My company sponsors this race every year, and the church who organizes it is a client, so it’s nice to support something so close to home. Either way, I’m looking forward to hanging out with all my friends and coworkers who run and walk it on Saturday and enjoying some yummy chili and cornbread afterward. The high is supposed to be in the 60s, so hopefully we’ll have some nice running weather since the race isn’t until 10:00.
I love January temperatures in the 60s too, but I guess that’s one reason why I love the South :).
The evil documentation monster is knocking on my cubicle wall telling me to get back to work now, so I’m back to the grind. Until next time…
Q1.) Have you been keeping up with the Republican primary? I was keeping up with it just because I live in South Carolina, and I still kind of am. I really hope Ron Paul improves in the polls!
Q2.) Do you let others know your political views? I guess I just did in the last question ;). Normally I’m pretty open about it anyway.
Q3.) Do you like Greek yogurt? I love it! Great sources of calcium and protein, plus very tasty.
Q4.) What are your favorite board games? I really love Apples to Apples!
