My Brain Hurts

by Meghann on August 10, 2010

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around a couple of big projects for work all morning.

Exhibit A:


The projects + last minute Healthy Living Summit details + too many cups of hot tea this morning has left my head feeling fried.

Exhibit B:



Whose ready for Thursday? I am! I am!! 🙂

Luckily all the work is making the morning (and afternoon) fly by! Woop Woop! And I have yoga plans after work. Yoga = relaxing afternoon bliss. 😉

This morning I had Cherry Tomatoes (might as well be candy if you ask me) and a slab of mozzarella cheese for a snack.


Lunch was a hearty dose of Sunday night left overs.


I topped the remaining serving of Jicama Coleslaw with some of the left over Coconut Crusted Tofu and drizzled it all with some bbq sauce.


The sweetness of the bbq sauce mixed with the slight tartness of the coleslaw and chewy tofu made for a wonderful lunch time bowl. The mix of summertime flavors and textures simply worked together.

With a Chai Tea Scone on the side.


Time to get back to work! 🙂

What  are you working on today? Any big projects? Spill!

I’m still getting acquainted with my new job and am having some trouble getting used to communication styles! So far, things have been great, but starting any new job is tough! Good luck finishing up all of your big projects and keeping your brain well-maintained in the process! 🙂

I am moving offices, so I am working on trying organize myself physically as well.

I try to get some fresh air when I feel my brain might explode:) Great pic, lol.

Ugh. Prepping for a meeting with my supervisor in 1/2 an hour. Will be thoroughly unproductive, but she likes to feel like she’s leading.

4 Marilou August 10, 2010 at 2:07 pm

I’m in the last few days of the position I’ve occupied for the last year and a half … data entry principally!

Can’t wait to start my new position in 2 weeks! 🙂

5 Beth August 10, 2010 at 2:08 pm

I’m working on brainstorming for my relatively new blog…as well as finishing up a project at work and training.

So excited for HLS!

6 britchickruns August 10, 2010 at 2:09 pm

I was working in my shop…but I found out today it’s closing! So my last day before the HLS suddenly turned into my last day ever 🙁
Chai tea scone sounds SO good!

I’m halfway through training for my graduate assistantship which so far has been a repeat of everything from last year…super exciting

I feel the same way! We leave for Honduras tomorrow, and haven’t packed our bags yet! Tonight/tomorrow will be VERY busy. I have at least 10 lists right now of everything I need to do.

Good luck with everything! I can’t wait to read recaps of the HLS – so sad the schedule didn’t work for me this year, but I hope to come next time!

9 Emily August 10, 2010 at 2:13 pm

Ay, I’m always working on big projects at work. I work with so many attorneys on so many different cases, and I’m so eager to please!

Did your coconut tofu get soggy or was it still good left over?

10 sweetersalt August 10, 2010 at 2:15 pm

I just finished helping with a large mailing – ugh paper cuts!

11 Dynamics August 10, 2010 at 2:18 pm

Trying to design with Excel. Ugg. I hate Excel. Maybe if I spent some time really learning Excel it might help me. Brain Fry, I hear you!

12 Kelly August 10, 2010 at 2:21 pm

I’m making really fun pandora stations to listen to while bored out of my mind. Does that count?

19 Kristen August 10, 2010 at 2:53 pm

I’m researching costs to put together a proposal for our company to host a user’s group in Miami or surrounding location. That will be a fun challenge!

33 Amanda @ Cakes and Ale August 10, 2010 at 7:19 pm

Yes! I’m trying to wrap my head around everything I need to get done before we leave on our vacation to Italy in a little over a month! I just want it to be here already and to be whisked away from all responsibility to stuff my face with pizza and gelato!
