–What I failed to mention about our company retreat last week, is that my old granny knee gave out on me while I was getting out of an SUV at the hotel Friday morning on our way to the airport. I fell and busted it open because I was wearing a dress…Luckily, I don’t  think I flashed anyone…unluckily a few of my co-workers saw me go down like a bag of bricks. No one laughed, except for me. Maybe I work with adults.

–Because of said fall, I have been walking around like the hunchback of Notre Dame. Don’t mind me!

–There was a super annoying kid behind me on the plane that was playing his DS at full volume. I turned around twice and gave both the kid and the parent evil eyes. They ignored me. I wanted to throw the kid DS out of the plane. Get the kid some damn headphones!!!

–I am in a lunch rut. A bad, bad lunch rut!!!! I have got to come up with better ideas of stuff to take to work. I have been eating the same boring things week after week. Please tell me what you do! Only healthy stuff…..

–….because I have been eating like shit too often lately. I had a coming to Jesus moment over the weekend. My fat pants fit. My skinny pants wont button. I feel icky. WTF Nadine?! I know this has everything to do with throwing all my hard work out the window every weekend. I want all of the bad things in large quantities. I do so well Monday to Friday morning, and then Friday night hits and I want everything. It is a vicious, ugly cycle that needs to be broken.

–Maybe you noticed that my social media follow buttons have been missing for months? I didn’t. Oops! Sooooo if we aren’t already following each other on social media, shall we? I know I am guilty of missing  a few follows myself. *shameless plug*

    Ouch! Knees are always the worst to hurt. I hope you feel better!

    Oh no I how your knee feels better soon!! I would have totally said something to that kid’s parents – I mean planes are very confined and a little noise = a lot of noise #RUDE!!!

    You find the absolute best cards! Not only are they so true for me but they are hilarious!!!

    True story: last year, my husband was playing golf at a charity event for work. His partners were the financial manager and the town manager of one of his company’s clients. He split his pants. During the event. On like the 8th hole. He had to cover his junk for 10 more holes and then dinner.

    I always laugh when I fall, even if others don’t. LOL. I hope you’re on the mend soon.

    I hear you on the weekend binges.

    People listening to music/videos/games/movies out loud in public spaces ENRAGES me. I have flat out told people to turn their shit off.

  • Reply Joey October 15, 2014 at 1:49 pm

    OMG! I literally wondered out loud the other day if I could I could still do a cartwheel or handstand. My husband spit his drink out and begged me not to try since our insurance is already through the roof! haha! I’m sorry you fell!!!! Hope your knee feels better soon. Lunches are freaking tough. I try to make enough dinner to have leftovers for lunch but that doesn’t always work. I like a protein salad (I make a big batch of chicken or steak, pre cut all the ingredients and put them in individual containers so it’s easy to assemble in the mornings for J’s workday). I like tuna salad either on a sandwich, with crackers or with pitas. I do the “snack” lunch a lot too where I take a bunch of fresh veggies, hummus, cheese and crackers, almonds, etc. Quesadillas are always good and easy to reheat. I’m sure I have more ideas but I have a stupid relationship with food in general where a lot of times I’m just too lazy to make it and I end up starving.

    I have a granny ankle. Sometimes it just decides that I don’t need to stand and down I go. I hope you stop hobbling around soon.

  • Reply Kateri Von Steal October 15, 2014 at 2:36 pm

    Oh man! I hope your knee heals up soon! I hate when people see me fall. I laugh at myself because I am so wicked embarrassed.

    Ok this week – I have been doing mason jar salads – And building them is super fun. Then shaking them up the next day to distribute the dressing is even funner.

    Hummus and chopped veggie for snack?
    Apples with PB?

    Breakfast has been overnight oats with either Flax Seeds or Sunflower Seeds – a dried fruit and almond milk (a little cinnamon too) – and a hard boiled egg with pepper. I lay it out all super pretty on my desk

    I think presentation is a big thing with food – even boring food can be jazzed up with a pretty plate or plating it cool.

    Stupid Wednesday not being a Friday! How dare it be so!

  • Reply Julia October 15, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    I totally tried doing a cartwheel not to long ago thinking the same thing. It was not pretty! Same goes for doing the slip and slide (remember those?). My friend and I tried it one time as college students and it was SO PAINFUL.

    I feel you on the bad eating! I do the same, will do well (or at least decent) during the week and then I hit Friday and it’s like “LET’S EAT IT ALLLL!” I think it goes back to college because I used to count calories or WW points during the week and then Friday was my “cheat day” and I would “reward” myself with bad things. Not a great habit to get into, but it stuck!

  • Reply Kelli October 15, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    Ugh on falling down, although I can’t figure out why no one laughed. I would totally laugh at any of my co-workers or even myself for busting it. 😉

    I always love your ecards, now that I work from home I never run out of unproductive stuff to do while I should be working.

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth October 15, 2014 at 3:34 pm

    Get the spiralizer!!!! Seriously I was getting so bored of salads and that was such a nice change up! Sorry about your fall girl……knock on wood I’m due for a fall it’s been a little while 😉

    all my e-mails at work are sarcastic. no one has picked that up yet…

  • Reply Joy October 15, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    Well that’s no fun with your knee… but at least you didn’t pull a Britney moment! I mean, you did have undies on, right?! HA!

  • Reply Lauren October 15, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    I’m a big fan of the snack lunch, too. I also tend to grab the premade salads in the produce section. The lazier I can be, the more willing I am to eat lunch at my desk and not go out!

  • Reply Kerry October 15, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    Oh no! Hope you heal quickly! That last one about banging into first class, genius! Doesn’t the plane give out headphones anymore?! WTF?!

  • Reply Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie October 15, 2014 at 4:43 pm

    Sorry about your knee! Ok and I was recently on a flight with a kid playing a game and the parents acting like full blast was completely acceptable. WTF!?

  • Reply tricia congilio October 15, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    If I noticed I am gaining weight and mention it to my bf he tells me I’m being ridiculous but the pants do NOT lie!!!

    Kids on planes are bad but their parents letting them do whatever the hell they want while interfering with other people’s flights are even worse.

    sorry, about your knee. You said you busted it open again?! Yikes! Such a sensitive spot to begin with, let alone do it again.

    The funny card that says to assume all emails are bitchy! LOL

  • Reply Morgan October 15, 2014 at 8:28 pm

    Ouch! Your poor knee. That sounds exactly like something I would have done. I hope it’s feeling better!!

  • Reply kristen October 15, 2014 at 10:24 pm

    lol I did know about your social media buttons, but I found them via your old blog and general stalking, I just figured you didn’t want people to stalk you… haha.
    Your poor knee!
    I am in a bad lunch rut too. Something easy I throw together: turkey, taco seasoning, black beans, rice + cheese. Sounds boring, but believe me when I say so yummy and all my coworkers always ask what I have because it smells so good (tp: don’t go light on the taco seasoning..). Coming into the winter months, I love trader joes tomato & pepper soup (like 200 cals a cup or something, so I basically have 5 cups lol).
    And yeah. My fat pants fit right now as well, I have banished the ‘skinny’ or even ‘normal’ pants to the back of the closet because I’m so mad at myself.

  • Reply Lynsey @ Eternally Wanderlyn October 16, 2014 at 12:17 am

    I ALWAYS laugh when I fall. I think I spend more time on the floor laughing than walking gracefully. LOL. I hope your knee feels better. 🙂

    When I’m in the “omg my “fat” pants fit” mode, the first thing I do is drink more water. Life saver every time!

    Ouch! That reminds me of one time when I busted my knee right in the crease where it pulled to walk. It was no fun!
