Crack Bagel

29 Apr

I hate my job sometimes.

I really do…

…Especially when marketing reps come into the office toting goodies from Panera, Dunkin’ Donuts or the like.  I hate it even more when my own co-workers turn against me and suggest we get our own goods.  I try and try to resist, and lately I’ve been so strong.  In the past month, I’ve turned down: baked French toast, various fruit cobblers, donuts, take-out from our favorite greasy spoon, Chinese food, and a pancake casserole.  But today?  I just didn’t have the strength or willpower to refuse.  I could hear the Panera Asiago Cheese bagel singing my name in a sweet little harmony.

Oh, sweet baby Jesus, it was worth it.

For lunch, I had some of last night’s leftovers:

This Chicken-Broccoli-Cheese-Rice-Curry-Everything-but-the-Kitchen-Sink-Casserole is a recipe from my friend Kate that she always raves about and brings to work for lunch at least once a week.  I had a minor freak out when I put it in the oven and realized I forgot the fat-free mayo.  I had intended to replace the mayo with greek yogurt, mostly because I abhor mayo.  In my post-gym hunger-stricken insanity, I forgot one of the main ingredients.

Side note: I have a hatred for most condiments actually (weird, I know).  When I see mayonnaise, to me, it looks like what would come out of my ass if I had liposuction.  Disgusting huh?  And now you know why I don’t like mayo.

Back to the recipe.  Upon realization that I’d forgotten this crucial ingredient, I paced the kitchen frantically.  I texted Kate to see if the casserole was going to suck.  Sadly, she thought so.  I apologized to Brandon profusely in advance for my sub-par dinner, and I insisted my feelings would not be hurt if he didn’t eat it.  I even offered to make him a sandwich instead.

Lo and behold, it didn’t suck.  It was actually pretty good!  So good that we barely had enough leftovers for us to bring for lunch today.

Last night I hit the gym for some strength training punishment.  I did the same routine as last time, and I’m planning on doing it again Sunday.  If I can get in 4 days of running and 2 days of lifting a week, I consider it to be a massive success.  Lately, I’ve been doing great with the running, and per usual, struggling to fit in the strength.

How many times a week and what types of workouts do you have include to feel as though you’ve had a successful workout week?

    Seriously, Devon, I like mayo. And if I think of it coming out of your ass next time I make a turkey sandwich, I’m gonna be pissed.

    Asiago Panera bagles are hard to pass up. As well as, for me, the cinnamon crunch.

    Hmm..good workout week for me is at least getting in something each day. I try to get a good variety, cardio, strength training and power yoga.

    I know what you mean with the reps..It’s SO hard to resist some of the goodies they bring in sometimes. I have the MOST trouble with the cinnamon crunch bagels. OMGYUM.

    Oh, and LOL at mayo..haha.

    Have a great weekend!

    Hope (I found you on Ash’s blog) 🙂
