Graduation Day (for Some of Us...)

Today has been a good day. We went up to Charlotte for breakfast with Mom and Dad, stayed to watch The Soup, and then came home and Joey did the lawn while I spent thirty minutes with Billy Blanks kicking my butt!! Lunch today was super healthy and fabulous!






This is the rest of my broccoli with garlic sauce from last night. I didn't feel like having too many carbs, so I didn't have any rice and just ate this as it was. Yumminess! I also refrained from eating all of the sauce left pooled in the bottom and poured it into a container to put in the fridge for something else later.




And this is:
  • 1/2 small flour tortilla
  • 1 wedge Laughing Cow Light Cheese
  • 1 spoonful of Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • seven baby carrots

Man, this was fantastic! And I'm left feeling full, but not stuffed and pretty happy with myself. I may have a salad and an apple with PB later, but nothing too heavy because we're going to a shindig for dinner!

Today is the first day in a while where I really feel like things are pretty good. I think that making the effort (finally) to take care of myself has been a big player in that, as has the natural relief of finishing the semester. I know that the summer class will be hectic, but I think I'll be good because Native American Lit is absolutely my favorite genre of ethnic literature.

But I do think that I'm going to have to work very hard to make sure that I don't get too scattered and overwhelmed this fall. I feel like I can do it. Today is a good day. I'm surfing the net and Joey is napping (he definitely DESERVES it) !!
