Here’s the thing – I am very superstitious. The reason this is stupid is because at the same time I am very logical and I always look for rational explanations for everything. I can’t explain why I still believe in good luck or random events being “signs” but I just do. The reason I am mentioning this is because on the way to work today I found 2 (not 1, but 2!!) pennies heads up. I always pick up pennies if they are heads up, and I never pick up pennies that are tails up (which is weird, I know), but I just think they are good luck. And as if that isn’t bizarre enough on it’s own, I actually think it is bad luck to pick up a tails side penny and even worse bad luck to walk past a heads up penny and not pick it up. I will refrain from elaborating on all my other freakish superstitions, but the moral of this story is that I knew today would be a good day since I had 2 heads up pennies in my pocket.
And it WAS a great day. I had such an easy patient load (only 3 patients, 2 of which I discharged by the afternoon) and jcaho didn’t come. What more could I ask for. Plus I got to work with my fav peeps today. Other than that, my meals were the same as they are every other day I work (I am so boring lately).
Lunch was the same: sando (Ezekiel bread, greek yog, honey must, smart deli meat, and lettuce) and silk soy milk latte
Snack was the same: berry smoothie power bar
After work I hit up starbucks for a subway ride/pre-gym treat. At this point, I was really feeling unoriginal with my ordering. So I got a grande iced coffee in a venti cup, and then dumped soy milk in all the extra space. In the end, the drink wasn’t that different than my other orders, but oh well.
At the gym, I “ran” on the elliptical for an hour, stretched for 10 mins and traded in my ab workout for grocery shopping. Here are the goodies I got:
I was still hungry, so I had the tofu I got at the store. This macro and vegan product is by Karen Sisters, and is all natural tofu with a cabbage/carrot/ginger salad on the side. To be honest, the salad isn’t that good, but I know ginger is good for the GI tract so I ate it anyways. I didn’t have the sauce though (on the side above).
