Guess what? I didn’t end up working out Monday morning. You knew that would happen, didn’t you? Bluh. I even went to bed early, set my alarm, etc.
But EVERY time I do something like that (set my alarm to work out/cook oatmeal/something else) I have a really hard time falling asleep. I spend more than an ample amount of time thinking about how I should go to sleep since I set my alarm:
“I need to fall asleep within the next ten minutes in order to get 8 full hours of sleep.”
“Ok, I need to fall asleep before 10pm to get 7 hours.”
“What time is it?” (secretly hoping it’s only 10:05) “12:30?! Ugh, I can’t get up at 5 and make it through the day!”
Etc. Etc. Etc.
Why do I do that to myself? Every other night I can set my alarm and not worry. I suppose I need to make it a habit. Then I won’t worry about it the next morning. I should have done this when daylight savings was new, so that it would have been easier! To bed at 7 tonight! Maybe…
In other news, my vegetarian version of the Cheesy Vegetable Chowder turned out pretty tasty. I substituted Earth Balance for butter, vegetable stock for chicken stock, almond milk for regular milk. I also added in some lentils for protein. Hidden lentils. Sean didn’t even notice them! Bwa ha ha ha! I’ll get you, my pretty. And your little cats, too!
Because the soup was like cheese soup (sort of) the vegetables were pretty obscured. Although Sean did notice the broccoli first thing…
Rating on the Sean-o-Meter: Not bad.
My response, “Does that mean it’s not good.”
Sean, “No. It just means it’s not bad.”
So, I recommend you try it. Here’s the link to the recipe again: Cheesy Vegetable Chowder.
In other recommendation news: I strongly recommend you replace the word “girl” with “squirrel” in all the songs you sing along to from now on. It’s much more fun, and funnier.
