Long Day of Work

by Meghann on February 17, 2009

Wow! What a day and night, I am beyond mentally exhausted! I am so glad my part in the big meeting is over for now, back to normal work tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚

Midmorning I snacked on a thing of Cheerios and Brazil Nuts.

I was pleasantly surprised with the semi-healthy choices for lunch.

Lunch was catered by Rolly Polly. THey had this big beautiful salad topped with an array of yummy toppings and a platter of Wraps, marked with colored tooth picks so you knew what you were getting.

I filled my  plate half up with the salad and a Veggie Wrap. It was a very tasty lunch. My only complaint was all the wraps had may (YUCK!)

I also had a Peanut Butter Chocolate Heart for a sugar boost during he meeting.

The meeting went smoothly, but dragged on. I was in the room from 11:15 to 4:30 and needless to say I was mentally drained afterwards.

I immediately grabbed this Apple from the plate of snacks on my way out the door and dug in.

I ran home quickly to let Abbie out before I met my co-workers for dinner. I was very happy to find a little gift waiting for me in my mailbox.

Aimee from the Healthy Lawyer had sent me some Sugar Cookie Tea as she is not a fan and its my favorite! She also sent a couple of bars and this adorable card.

There were some chocolates too and I just had to try a piece immediately.

My working dinner took place tonight at Kobe’s Japenese Steakhouse. CIMG5349.JPG

I started out with a glass of the Cabernet and that turned into another. ๐Ÿ˜‰

At the table my co-workers decided to order the famous Scorpion Flaming Drink.

Of course I wanted to be a part of the festivities, but unfortunately the drink had bananas in it so I could not drink for real, just pose for photos. :(.

The meal started with Onion Soup.

Then a ginger salad.

The best part of Japanese Steakhouses is watching the chefs cook.

SInce I’m not that big of a meat fan, I was allowed to order off the menu and had Shrimp instead of the Steak and Chicken option everyone else had. CIMG5362.JPG

I can’t believe I cleaned my plate off. I think I impressed some of my co-workers with my eating skills.CIMG5366.JPG

Even though I was studded, I couldn’t resist what I thought was my last Godiva chocolate when I got home.CIMG5369.JPG

I as so excited when I realized that wasn’t the last of my Godiva, oh no, in fact that was only the finish of my first layer!

Hello second layer of lovelies!

Yay!!! More Godiva for the rest of the week!! I’m so excited!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Great lunch! Good thing they had healthy options. ๐Ÿ™‚

10 Andrea [bella eats] February 17, 2009 at 11:29 pm

Glad you had a great day! I LOVE Roly Poly, we had one in Gainesville and I really miss it! Such a great healthy option, minus the mayo.

I’m curious, do you not like bananas or are you allergic? I LOVE them, and get anxious if I realize that I’m not going to have enough to last me the week!

11 Olga February 17, 2009 at 11:32 pm

I love Japanese steakhouses! They’re the best

Your working dinner reminds me of the Benihana Office episode, especially the pic of your coworkers sipping the Scorpian drink.

Hey,
Glad to see your long work day went well and is now behind you. I do have a quick question. How many miles do you run on a weekly basis? I am currently training for my first 1/2 marathon in September and right now I am logging about 20-25 miles a week. Since I don’t have many days that I can devote a long period of time to one run, I usually end up acheiving this by running up to 5-6 days a week (about 4-5 miles a day). Do you think that is a good range? Too much? Too little? I really want to train for this thing the right way and want to make sure I am not over or under working myself.
Thanks so much!

23 VeggieGirl February 18, 2009 at 8:04 am

Fabulous gift from Aimee, and a fun night!!

24 Shelby February 18, 2009 at 8:10 am

That card is adorable.

Horray for a fabulous night! =)

25 Allison February 18, 2009 at 8:23 am

Looks like you work with a great group of people! ๐Ÿ™‚

All your packages goodies look fantastic! I just tried their “peppermint” tea and it’s delicious – I have to go look for that sugar cookie stuff now!

26 Allison February 18, 2009 at 8:23 am

Also – after reading you for like 6 months now – how have I missed “banana” comments before? Are you allergic or do you just not like them? I thought I was the only one in the blogging world who didn’t like them!

27 Jenny February 18, 2009 at 8:24 am

I think I need that box of Godvia….Any idea where it came from and what the box is called? haha

28 ttfn300 February 18, 2009 at 9:03 am
