Neverending Story 

Hooray! We’re going to see the Neverending Story tonight at the theater! I’m excited to see all the characters I love on the big screen! This is one of my favorite movies from my childhood and j could probably quote most of it but I’ll resist, although I might have to sing the song at the end ūüėČ 

Meal Plan Monday

As I mentioned yesterday movement has been very limited this weekend.


Thankfully I removed myself from the couch long enough to enjoy dinner with some friends. ¬†One of my friends works at a restaurant and she’s always saying I need to come visit her so I finally took the time to do just that yesterday. ¬†The weather was perfect. ¬†It takes about 20 minutes to get there and I took the scenic back road along the river.

Dinner was delicious!  She suggested the Greek chicken dish and it was amazing.


That is a beautiful plate of food. It was also a much healthier option than what I was originally considering.  Continuing my exploration of various cuisines I have confirmed that I enjoy Greek food so expect to see, at the least, Greek salad show up on my meal plans one of these weeks.

After dinner we took a stroll through Snohomish.


All the shops were closed but it made me more motivated to go back up that way one of these weekends. ¬†There’s so many great antique shops, which is right up my alley.

It was a great time just visiting with friends and made me feel like less of a lazy bum. ¬†Now I’m gearing up for a short work week. ¬†Hooray! ¬†An already short week is made extra short as I’m taking another long weekend so I’m working only 2 days this week. ¬†This is another reason I don’t feel bad for doing nothing over this weekend because next weekend is full of activities.

Just a baseball game and a show but we’ll see what other activities we find along the way.

The meal plan is short and sweet because the last part of the week will mostly be eating out or eating at my friend’s place.

Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! ¬†It’s time to get back to work!

Real quick, work made me think of working out. ¬†I’ll be in the gym Tuesday, Wednesday and then Thursday morning because I didn’t make it today. ¬†I’m hoping to maybe get in a hike or a walk on Friday plus I think we’ll be doing plenty of walking over the weekend. ¬†I did a bunch of walking in place and went for a walk outside but my Fitbit died so it doesn’t count, XD

Breakfast:  Yogurt with blueberries

The Long Lazy Labor Day Weekend

I missed two days in a row. ¬†Writing everyday can be a challenge especially if you’re not used to it but I’m back in the game.

I’ve admittedly been glued to my couch for the last day and a half with the exception of a brief trip to the store. ¬†The downtime was good but I’m supposed to be going out to dinner tonight with friends so I’m breaking my lazy/hermit/slothlike streak to be social for a little bit.

I woke up this morning and felt instant joy when I realized I didn’t have to go to work tomorrow ūüėÄ ¬†ochvmi9Tomorrow my plans are go to the gym, finish up chores, watch the Walking Dead. ¬†I started watching from the beginning and I’m just as hooked as I was when I first started watching. ¬†It’s so good! ¬†I thought I would hate the gore but the characters are so good I’m able to overlook it and just enjoy the story lines.


That’s really all I’ve got for today, looking forward to putting together my meal plans for the week, and getting into the gym 3 days this week. ¬†I’m finding having people at work in a similar state of mind is really, really helping me stay on track. ¬†A few of my coworkers go to my same gym, another guy is my Fitbit competition, and many people in the office are open to exploring healthier food options. ¬†It’s definitely shifting into a healthier environment.

I’ll have more tomorrow with my meal plan posts. ¬†Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!!
