Weather Blues

I need to take a moment to complain a little bit about this weather.

It’s the end of April and the temperature is in the 30’s when I make my way to work in the morning.  I can’t even remember what it feels like to have the sun shine on my face.  I mean, it’s ridiculous that I’m still wearing my parka and don’t have any idea when I will be able to retire that coat for the season.

I’m very ready for Spring but knowing Chicago weather it will go from parka weather to “I can’t stand to go outside because it’s so hot and humid” weather.

I’m a hard girl to please 😉

Tuesday Eats


Started off this cold morning with a warm skinny vanilla latte:

And a warm Potbelly oatmeal topped with peanut butter:

Definitely a double yum breakfast!


I decided to face the cold and wind and take a walk during my lunch break.  I had lots of options for food and I ended up with Panda Express.  Not my favorite place to eat but I thought it was a better choice than the burger places I was really wanting.

I wasn’t able to get a picture but I ended up having a half cup of rice topped with broccoli and hot sauce.  Wasn’t bad but it wasn’t all that great either.


Celebrated the end of my workday with a cocktail of raspberry vodka and lemonade:

I made myself a turkey, cheddar cheese, pickles and spicy mustard on a bagel thin:

It was really good!!!

Calories:  1339 (plus a couple more because I had an unaccounted for oreo)
