Today was a great day!! I felt very productive! Very! I went to do some work for my internship and ran some very important errands but not before I cracked open my Strawberry Slim Fast Shake..ohh la la and in between all of the running I did I also drink my second Vanilla Slim Fast Shake. I went to the grocery store and picked up a pack of chicken tenderloins and some squash, zucchini, and brown rice. I was going to get it in.com when I got home! But when I was putting up the stuff that bought, I noticed that I still had some hamburger meat that needed to be fixed before it went bad. I didn't want to cook two meals at a time, but I did it anyway. I had all the right ingredients for baked spaghetti. Note: LaBellaBoss makes a GREAT baked spaghetti. But mine just so happened to be BETTER!!! :) I made that and I had wheat noodles too, by the way! I also had jalapeno cheese and american cheese and pepperonis that I layered it with!!! WHEW!!! SMACK MY MAMA! But OF COURSE, I know, I know I could not have any. But I did taste it, and what? I made it lol. In the process of all that, I washed my chicken breast tenderloins, "lightly" seasoned it, folded up in the aluminum foil and baked it, at 350 degrees. In the process, I cut up the squash and zucchini, and put 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small frying pan. I put the contents in it and I sauteed them and stirred, adding a pinch of pepper, a little bit of salt, and some spike seasoning! Yes indeed, I stirred until they were good and cooked and laid them to the side until my chicken was done. I decided to hold off on the rice, I didn't really need it. Together, omg, that was so good and healthy! I bake chicken all the time though, but I never make squash and zucchini! Yall should get with this health kick. Some of this food, I eat, but cooking and adding my own little kick to it, I bring it!
Well afterwards, Dominique wanted to go play basketball, which was cool because I could go walk the track and play my tunes while he did so. So from about 4:30 to 7:30 I walked and walked and walked. That was so the peace of mind I needed. I was relaxed, I had pandora on, and I just let the sounds of the music move my hips as I power walked. It was soooo funny, for one, because I was dancing a little and probably singing TOO LOUD. I was praising God, Praying, grooving, clapping, moving my hips, ( I know it all sounds horrible, but i was switching between Genres) Get this though. Somebody called me right, and as I was walking around the court, some guy was like "You need to be calling me" and Dominique was on the other side of the court in his own world. I brushed it off, smiled, and attempted to make my next lap around, jamming. The second time I got to the court I was trying to make eye contact with my boo so I could blow him a kiss...but no dice! He was all up in that game! But ol' boy was still on the sideline gesturing me to come here! I busted out laughing!! I wasn't even looking all that( I didnt think so! But apparently!) Booty must be getting bigger or somen' :). I lapped it around again! I guess Niques game ended, because he was on the sideline while i was coming around. He stopped me, "Aye girl, do I know you?" I batted my eyes, and looked him up and down and was like "Nah boo, I don't think you do" He kept on trying to holler and ol boy from earlier says OUT LOUD!! "NAH BRO, THAT'S ME!" *passes out* Dominique turns around and says "Oh yeah? My bad dog, you got it" and laughed and walked back to the court, and before I could bust out laughing and SMACK Dominique at the same time, ANOTHER boy said, "Nawwww yo, that's me, I been trying to get her attention," and then Ol boy came running after me as I was RUNNING around the track to get away! Dominique is sooo trifling!! LOL. After asking me what i was doing there, and finding out that I came to exercise while my man was playing basketball he had the DUMBEST look on his face. I was like yeah, that's my man. He was like "Ohhh, Im going to fall back then!" I heard Dominique say, "You didn't stand a chance did you?" To him back on the court! MENNNNNNN!!! Sheesh! I swear, probably most like you other boss chics, I get a lot of attention when i feel I am not my best! Dudes crazy!
I was feeling myself, feeling my legs being worked out, my feet!? Ohhh my feet! Ok Yall are going to KILL ME, BASH ME, CRITICIZE ME, I TAKE IT!! I don't own a pair of tennis shoes! I don't!! This sounds so trifling of me too, but about a year ago, I wanted to go work out, and it was on a limb, and I wasn't near any shoe stores, but a ROSS, and I went in and I couldnt find any shoes in my size except for a pair of *PAUSES TO SHAKE HEAD* Pink and White FUBU shoes for $16.00. I copped them knowing I wouldn't see anybody I knew and worked out. After that, forgetting any morals about dieting and exercise that I had, I threw them THINGS AWAY(what?? Im picky) I havent had the urge to buy a pair of tennis shoes, because I don't wear them and because I was not serious about my weight journey (OBVIOUSLY) and now that I am, I was missing some tennis shoes terribly. Well not really, I had on gladiator flip flops that wasn't all the way flat. The ladies was hating on me, because I was not complaining about my feet, but one took the time to tell me how much I was going to pay for it later on in life! *Yeahhhh, but right now Youre in my way maam* NEXT!!! After walking, I was so energetic. I was able to go to my meeting that night, full of ideas, and full of optimism! MIAMI AIN'T TRYING TO SEE ME!!!
