I wish I could say I felt better today, but I really don't. Blah. My spirits were lifted tremendously yesterday evening when my boyfriend surprised me with an order of chicken noodle soup from our favorite little soup place!
Prior to the amazing soup, all I had eaten for the day was some roasted green beans with a fried egg on top. No, you don't need to re-read that sentence, you read it correctly: roasted green beans topped with a fried egg. I came across this on a blog not too long ago (I think this one?) and thought gross! But for some reason I was intrigued enough to try it a couple weeks ago with roasted Brussels sprouts (side note: did you know they were actually called "Brussels sprouts", not brussel sprouts? I didn't.). Wow...really, really good! The yolk from the egg makes kind of a sauce. That might sound gross to some, but if I order or make pan-fried eggs, I make them "dippy" eggs, so it's perfect for me. I think the technical term for "dippy eggs" is over-medium (I don't like over-easy...that's a little too dippy for me).
(Oh, and if anyone is reading this and happens to be keeping track - that makes 3 out of 4 blog posts that I have talked about eggs.).
I'll just keep it to myself, then, that I bought more farm fresh eggs (blue ones this time) at the farmer's market this morning.
Yesterday, after I took a nap and my fever broke, I felt like taking a nice, long bath before I had to leave to get the littlest brothers from school. When I was drying off, something moving caught the corner of my eye in my pile of clothes on the floor. I had been wearing yoga pants prior to my bath and they were
balled up folded neatly on the floor of the bathroom. At first, I thought maybe it was a palmetto bug (not to be confused with a roach - we have palmetto bugs in Florida whether your house is pristine or not) crawling up my pants leg. So, I grabbed the pants from the top part and gently shook them with my left hand and was ready to smash the palmetto bug with a flip-flop in my right hand. Oh, but no, it was not a disgusting palmetto bug crawling in my pants. THIS is what staring back at me:
I know. You're absolutely, completely shocked since I gave that away in the title of this blog post. Whatever. There may or may not have been many expletives shouted when I saw this little guy. I wasn't scared or anything. Obviously, considering I had the presence of mind to not only go grab my phone to take a picture, but to grab my phone, take a picture, Instagram it, text it to my mom and Rob, and upload it to Twitter. It was more of a "WHAT IN THE F&^% is a CRAB doing in my PANTS?!?" kind of shouting. Of course, Rob replies with "You have crabs?!" Ha. Ha. I have no idea where the little crab ended up running off to. Or however crabs transport themselves. I swear...this kind of stuff only happens to me.
On the weight loss front, Saturdays are my weigh-in days and I lost 1 pound today! I sooo wanted to lose more than 1 today because that will put me at 20 total. No rush, though. It will happen next week!
This has turned into quite the novel so I'm going to shut up now. Hoping to feel better in the morning so I can make it to Zumba! It's another class that the guy teaches, so I know it will be awesome.
