Is it sacrilegious to cook tofu with actual chicken?
Anyway….Friday’s delicious meal:
- 4 ounces boneless skinless chicken
- 3 ounces Nasoya Extra Firm tofu
- 2 cups Japanese stir fry mix (Publix)
- bean sprouts
- extra mushrooms
I crossed off two of my May goals early this month…try tofu and cook a new recipe. And I’ve kinda fallen in love with tofu. This opens a lot more recipe doors without substituting meat into vegan recipes. Now if only a local store sold seaweed then I could make miso soup instead of buying the high sodium prepackaged stuff.
(No workout today, it’s 4 loads of laundry day since I hadn’t done laundry since before my trip.)
I ordered this really pretty sale yarn online to knit leg warmers for a friend’s birthday and I’m yet again disappointed because although the weight of this yarn matches the same weight as other yarns who have the same Worsted Weight gauge and ply, the yarns are completely different in actual thickness. I’d have to double strand the yarn to even remotely get close to the same thickness as the yarn I’m already using for the same pattern for myself (from this post).
This is the second time that this has happened to me and I’m in desperate need of trying to figure out the correct yardage (and/or weight if I’m changing from the pattern) of yarns for patterns so I don’t have to order three times online and pay shipping each of those times. Any ideas on how to do this?
And in even more related knitting news….I officially have 3 long term knitting projects going on that I’m super excited to start taking pictures of once they are further along (Crafty Saturdays are definitely making a comeback).
Just one of those nights where I’ve been in bed for awhile and my brain just won’t shut off.
Why won’t someone hire me?
Why did you leave from my life?
Why can’t I just stand up for myself?
Why am I here?
Why do you make me feel this way?
How can I feel so alone but yet feel so much love from friends?
Why did I choose this degree?
Am I the only one who feels this way?
What will it take to get you back in my life?
But the most emotional question….
When will I feel whole again?
Dinner meet Tumblr.
Tumblr meet dinner.
I needed protein but was craving vegetables. Omelette for the win. Plus some of the GOOD olives.
Gym was good. 2 miles on the treadmill, 7.5 miles biking, half a mile rowing.
Good news on the scale usual makes me feel like superwoman for the day.
This is the last time I’m going to post SW 1 because I’m done comparing what I was pre-PCOS diagnosis to what I am now.
I need to go on vacation more because apparently I actually lose weight.
Yes, it’s been a month since my last WIW, but when 2.5 of those weeks you are out of town, it’s a bit hard to weigh in plus pre-traveling I was busy and post-traveling I came back on a Wednesday and I usually weigh myself for 3 days to make sure the number is consistent.
Also, WELCOME new followers! I picked up 20 of ya’ll last night and another 15-20 during my travels.
What my dinner looks like in the pan because I end up stinking at the whole presentation of dinner thing since I eat alone.
Went slightly over my carbs today but still under in calories.
“I’m sorry but we have decided to choose a different candidate.”
First rejection from one of my on site interviews from my trip earlier this month.
I’m not the least bit disappointed or upset about this one. The interview was alright, the facility was nice, but I knew when they started talking about the actual job position that I wasn’t going to be the right fit. I just wish that more details had been provided in the job posting so I could have been better prepared. Live and learn, right?
As of tomorrow I will be 22 months unemployed. Today I am applying to my 3,010 job. At the end of the month I have 2 on site job interviews. The more jobs I apply to and the more interviews I get, I feel that something is bound to be offered soon. I just gotta push through until it does. And start visiting friends more, it helps my sanity level.
It took me 40 minutes from when I wanted to leave to go to the gym and when I actually left. But since I was delayed due to setting up more job interviews, I guess it’s acceptable.
Until I came home to this lazy bum who hasn’t moved since I left.
2 miles on the treadmill and 10 minutes rowing. Great workout to get back into a routine.
In the background—-my latest knitting project all for myself with yarn from Indiana.

“There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.” — Charlie Brown
Seriously, if someone knows you don’t want to talk politics but does it anyway because that is what they do, why can’t they just get it through their thick skulls that it is a MAJOR TURN OFF in whatever friendship/relationship you have with them.
I feel like some people just honestly will never get it despite how many times you tell them that you don’t have any desire to get pissed off at their stupidity.
- fruit salad
- regular salad (7 portions)
- chicken stir fry
- all the cleaned dishes and cutting utensils
- the 5 hours spent in the kitchen this morning
Yesterday ended vacation eating and today starts back on non-takeout food and tons of vegetables and fruits. I’m determined more than ever to mix foods and workouts up to try to lose weight again. Here’s to hoping my body agrees.
Sidenote: Gym this afternoon. First run since Indy. I’m looking forward to it.
