I am starving right now! I am waiting for my rice to cook on the stove before I can eat. I am having leftovers. A piece of Chipotle Pepper chicken with Cheddar and Broccoli rice.

I CLEANED ALL DAY TODAY! Seriously, I cleaned the whole apartment and it was quite satisfying actually. I also wrote my three articles, got in a great workout, applied for another job, and had time to play some Beatles rockband! It was so much fun and I did pretty well considering I haven’t played in quite some time.

This morning I made Double Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oats. They were delicious, but I couldn’t finish it! I couldn’t believe it. I always finish my oatmeal, but today it was just too much and I left a little bit in the bowl. Oh well.

My oatmeal contained:

  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Nutmeg
  • Ground Cloves
  • 1/4 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • a splash of vanilla
  • spoonful of Teddy PB
  • 1/3 of a Pumpkin Scone crumbled on top

I’ve been satisfying my sandwich craving the last two days and today I had this. A turkey and muenster cheese grilled sandwich with an apple and a pickle. So good!

Ahh, sorry for the blurry picture! Okay, time to go eat now!

From here on out I must think of every day as a work day. I feel like a new woman today. I am officially an intern at I Really Like Food dot com and I must contribute 15 hours a week towards writing for their site. I am very excited about this and I look forward to the challenges it will bring. I made an official work space today by organizing our unused desk.

My area is complete with a large wall calendar, a desk lamp that I just set up and a Snuggie on the back on my chair. It gets cold in the bedroom and I am right next to the window so a Snuggie is perfect because I can wear a blanket and type at the same time!  : )

I am an organized working woman now, who is still working for free, but hopefully after tomorrow I will be a working woman who gets paid real money. I have an interview tomorrow at lululemon in Soho. It’s a group interview so I’m going to have to try a little harder than normal. I want this job and I will get it so I have to make sure I stand out and talk a lot! I had a dream last night that I was really late to my interview and I ended up missing it completely. I was so upset in my dream and it was unbelievably real. It’s at 8 am tomorrow and I must say that I am glad it’s in the morning because it therefore does not allow me to think about it way too much before I go. Wish me luck!

On the food side of things, I made a delicious appetizer plate as my lunch today. We don’t have many things to eat as meals in the apartment so I decided to eat a little bit of everything.

  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Crackers
  • Celery
  • Green and Yellow Peppers
  • Garlic Hummus
  • Feta Stuffed Olives
  • and a Pickle

What is going on with the weather? It’s so freakin UGLY outside right now. I am proud of myself though because I actually mustered up the motivation to run. It wasn’t too cold out, but the wind was terrible. I literally had to fight and push my way through it. I did some speed work at the track and this week there was hardly anyone there. I’m not surprised, everyone is probably at home curled up in their beds. I felt a little weak today, kind of tired and I really couldn’t wait to be done. I blame the weather.

I ate half a pumpkin spice clif bar and drank a small glass of juice before I left. When I got back I ate the only thing we have in the house; oatmeal.

I crumbled the other half of my clif bar on top along with some granola, peanut butter, a banana, and honey.


For dinner, I made some Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper Soup with some added pepperoni and shredded cheddar cheese. I also had a slice of leftover pizza from last night.



I did lots of cleaning today and some laundry. It’s nice to have everything de-cluttered and organized. Yeah, that’s what I do on Friday nights, it’s that exciting around here.

There is always a cycle of organization for me. I just can’t seem to keep up with it 100%. I almost prefer it that way though. I love reorganizing things and starting fresh, but it never fails, everything I once organized and got under control eventually becomes cluttered and out of control. This seems to happen with everything in my life, not just the cleanliness of my apt. I must admit though, our apartment has come a long way since the last debacle of organization. The point here is that it is time to yet again reorganize and restructure. The summer time has hit and it is time to do a third round of spring cleaning. Especially when it is hot, that is when things need to be clutter free and spacious otherwise things will be even more uncomfortable. 

I’ve started my organizing with a triathlon training schedule. I have about 7 weeks to prepare myself for this immense accomplishment. I’m so pumped to do it! I haven’t officially signed up yet, but I will be doing it on Saturday. I want to make sure my family will be able to come and support me before I choose which one I do. 

Second on my list of organizing is getting rid of all the clothes that I do not wear, and there are a lot of them! I don’t know what it is, but I have a hard time parting with my clothes. I always think that I will wear them someday, when in reality if I don’t wear it now, I sure as hell won’t wear it in the future. 

Third is my money. I like setting goals for my savings fund and my credit card payments. I seem to be doing well with both and feel confident that I will be in good financial standing once I head to NY.

Fourth is actually cleaning my apartment. Now, I feel like I should set a goal to see how long a clean apt. can last. It’s hard work man! 

Sorry for this really long and boring post, but I must say it feels nice to get it all out there and organized. That’s the first step…making a list!
