I’m not often a victim of bad luck, but whenever I am, it seems to hits me pretty hard.
This past weekend was one of those times! On Saturday afternoon, I hit the gym with my new armband and my credit and debit cards in the cardholder (get where I’m going on?). After the gym, I went grocery shopping. I know I had both of my cards while I was at the checkout counter, but I couldn’t find my debit card when I got back to my apartment. Luckily, I live about three minutes from the grocery store so I just ran back out and retraced my steps… No luck though. I’m guessing someone found it and picked it up because I had to have gone back within the span of 10 minutes. I had to call the bank and get it replaced.
You know how I talked about getting my bloodwork done in my June goals post? Well, I’d gone and had it done last Monday and the results were waiting in my mailbox when I got back from my debit card-hunting trek. Sadly, more bad news. I’ve been plagued with genetic high cholesterol since I was in high school and I was really hoping it’d gone down in the past year since I’ve gotten a lot healthier, in terms of both my eating and exercise habits. But according to my bloodwork, it’s actually gone up slightly! Not significantly, but it was just very disappointing because that wasn’t the news I’d been hoping to get. There was some other bad news in there that I don’t really want to talk about… I need to call my doctor to talk about the results tomorrow and get some referrals for specialists. Boo.
And after all the bad news bears, I was totally drained and skipped my plan to write a post catching up on the week. But I’m trying my best not to make myself feel like I’m getting behind… S&R is my baby but it’s not my whole life!
Now let’s talk about the good stuff… Fooood! Here’s some of the stuff I’ve been enjoying lately:
Vegan Divas’ chocolate mousse, which I discovered at my company’s cafeteria. Only 42 calories and absolutely delicious! Sadly, it’s a little pricey ($3.50) for an everyday snack so I may try making it at home to get my chocolate fix.
Veggie burger with soy provolone and roasted red pepper hummus on an Arnold sandwich thin. I just bought all of these things and they are all things I need to buy again soon. It’s a tasty combination and a very quick meal!
Peace out, Cub scout!
