Is it just me, or has this week been crazy?!?! Between a flurry of pouring rain, and shocking sun, and a ton of long work days….I am definitely ready for the weekend!
Some of the Week’s Highlights:
I had Tuesday off. That was kinda nice….got a lot of work done on my room, spent time with my lovely friend Emily, and made yummy Trader Joe’s Shrimp Stir-Fry. I highly recommend it. Good protein, tons of veggies, and the pepper seasoning packet included with it is pretty good! I bought the most adorable shelf online to put on the wall above my nightstand to house some perfumes, etc…and I put it up all by myself! And I am in love with it!
The HR girl at work today came up and asked me about the daily goal, and when I answered correctly, she gave me a Starbuck’s gift card! WOOO!
I went to Charlotte Russe yesterday, and all clearance shoes were on sale for $6.99. Guess who walked out with three pairs, yes….THREE PAIRS of adorable fall-fashion forward booties for a grand total of $22? Yeah, that was me. Please….no applause! 🙂 I can’t wait to put them all to good use! Helllooooo, Autumn!
I paid $1650 worth of debt off ( and almost killed a postal service representative who treated me like an idiot because I didn’t know how to go about sending something via Express Mail). I am officially $800 away from financial freedom, at which point, I have decided to go ahead and go full-throttle with the car situation, and make sure I reach my November 15th goal. With a trip to Vegas at the end of this month right before rent is due? It’s going to be a little tricky….but let’s face it….me and money? We make it work! I’ve made a habit of putting and $1 bills and change (and sometimes, the occasional $5 or $20!) in my wallet at the end of the day in my cute sparkly gold piggy bank. That way, I’ll have extra Vegas fun-money when the time comes, and in the future, I can use the habit for other trips or expenditures. Not too shabby, if you ask me! One of the better ideas I have had!
Also, my Quest Bar Low Carb Protein Bar samples came in the mail this week! I got two full-sized bars and a handy-dandy refrigerator magnet! WOO! I decided to have the Chocolate Brownie variety for dinner/dessert that night, and the 20 grams of protein was the perfect way to round out my 60-80 gram daily quota since surgery. And let me tell you, although I am not a huge chocolate fan….I loves me some brownies! Quest Bar did an AWESOME job on that!
If you get the chance, check out QUEST BAR-Low Carb Protein Bar on Facebook here. Also, you can go to their official website here, and order your very own Quest Bars! They are currently offering a promotion for FREE shipping! They also offer a 10% discount if you sign up for their auto-delivery program. You know I love subscription deals!
I’ll be ordering a box of Vanilla Almond Crunch and I think I’ll be trying some of the PB&J or Apple Pie variety too. I am VERY excited to have a protein bar option that isn’t ridiculously high in sugar or just plain unfavorable on the taste front! The awesome thing is, with 20 grams of protein per bar, all the varieties only have 4-6 grams of carbs each! Even for people who aren’t trying to pack in the protein post weight loss surgery, these are an awesome meal replacement bar, post-workout bar, or good to keep in gym bags, purses, or lockers and desks for an energizing snack during the day.
All in all, it’s been a very good week. I’m sure there is more that I am forgetting….but I’ll cover it when I remember.
In the meantime, cheers to the freakin’ weekend!

‘Til next time!
