If Wednesday is hump day, then Thursday was slump day for me. Actually it was and it wasn’t. I got a lot of things accomplished around the house, but I felt like I was in a slump with my writing. I’ll get to that but I need to give myself a pat on the back for what I did do.
Changed the bed, washed, and folded 3 loads of laundry, paid some bills and got rid of a load of junk mail that needed to be shredded. These were leftover things that I needed to shred. Over the last week or so, when the mail comes in, Ralph hands it to me, I go through to see what is what. I’m usually sitting at my desk which has the shredder right next to it. I open up the offending envelope and shred the part that needs shredding. Envelopes and other filler from the envelope goes right into the recycling bag next to the desk. I’m feeling that I have that stuff a little better under control and I like that. So, see (I’m saying this to myself) I didn’t accomplish something on Thursday! 🙂
I received a present in the mail. I got a package from True Protein. I had e-mailed them last week to ask if they would be able to send me some samples. They kindly sent me two samples.
One is chocolate flavored pea protein, the other is vanilla flavored rice protein. I tried the chocolate and it was tasty. The good thing for me was that when I calculated the Weight Watchers Points, it was only 2 Points and with the 1 cup of soymilk, it became 3 Points. For me that’s better than some of the others which are much higher in points. This may be the protein powder for me. I’ll see after I try the vanilla.
I had done some writing in the morning after posting on BCDC as has become my routine throughout the NaNoWriMo process. I got about 1400 words written and planned to come back in the afternoon. When I got back to it in the afternoon…nothing. The story just wasn’t coming to me. I finally wrapped it up at 2007 words. Some of the ladies in the on-line writing group have said if it’s not working, just leave it and come back to it. That’s what I did. I left and watched the Food Network!
Of course, the Food Network made me hungry. I had nothing ready and nothing planned. After sightseeing in the fridge for a few minutes I came up with something.
I chopped up a red bell pepper
sautéed it in some olive oil
I mixed together 3 eggs and some fat-free cottage cheese
Cooked together with the bell pepper
With some white toast (all that was in the house) and can you say Yum? It was really tasty and satisfying which is just as important. No snacking later in the evening.
I guess in retrospect, it wasn’t such a slump day after all. I need to make sure that for Friday and the rest of the weekend, the slump is over.
Happy Non-Slump-Day Friday!!
