I started out the day desperately needing a nap. So, what else is new? Actually, this is a pretty constant thing in my life, and one of the reasons I started doing the Whole30 in May. I’m constantly tired, and 9 months of working too much has likely put me in a state of adrenal fatigue; I pretty much want to nap constantly. My doc has me on sublingual B12 and we’ll see how that goes; I may have an uptake issue and will have to go the shot route. Waah, shots.
Anyway, a nap was not to be in my future, as there was call after call on a Friday morning and a couple major deliverables to get out. So, of course, I proceeded right into KILL ALL THE THINGS mode. This only makes trying to get a deliverable where you depend on people to read instructions that much more fun, because for whatever reason … 50% of the population is incapable of reading instructions. Come to think of it, I might want to kill them all on a normal day, too.
I had to bail about 10:30 am and go take a walk just to keep from losing it. I stopped by and picked up books from the library, and swung by Whole Paycheck to pick up a few things (including an $8 roll of chichi recycled aluminum foil, because I didn’t feel like getting the car out and driving to the Jewel for consumeristic foil, but jeez), and came back and felt mildly better.
I spent my lunch break making grilled chicken (which I had with Avocado):
And then, since the grill was fired up, I decided to grill some spaghetti squash instead of heating up my house:
Doesn’t that look delicious? I whipped that baby into a double batch of Paleo Pad Thai. Mmm, heaven. And, I didn’t kill anyone!
