Thanks so much for your concern yesterday about Winnie. All of your comments lifted me up 🙂
Miss Winnie kitty is doing much better today. I called the vet this morning and they said there is no need to come in yet since she is doing better on her own. So the plan is to monitor her for a couple of days, and if she is not improving it will be a party at the vet. So that is that for now.
Onto other things…
I Like to Eat
Yes, it’s true, I like to eat a lot. You guys have probably already used your powerful detective skills and discovered this all on your own, but even before I started my blog, I have always been known for my love of eating.
It is not a fact that eludes my coworkers, and I would say probably the biggest running joke in my office is my love of eating. If there is mention of food at any time, guaranteed some sort of joke about me eating will follow. I’m sure you guys remember the lunch thief incident. I don’t mind at all (it makes me laugh), and I probably bring this upon myself, but these little jokes are definitely something that liven up my day.
If a mass email is sent out about any sort of food function in my building, my boss will forward the email to me and usually say something like “Did you see this?! Free food!” Obviously I didn’t miss the first email, but I like it.
Anyway, I was cleaning out my email tonight and I found a few that made me laugh. They are always between boss and my coworker Brian. Always. Those two are the Lindsey loves food ringleaders.
Oh, when Doug says the Princess, he is referring to me. I have no idea why…Brian started that one. And I call him Lord Byron 😉 <- throwback post!
And then the next year…
Obviously I couldn’t let that one go…
And then there was the time I won a $50 gift card for cheese on Twitter, because I said I loved cheese (and I do) in my Twitter profile. For weeks I was known as the cheese connoisseur, and I would regularly get emails like this:
Honestly, it is these sorts of things that take my job to the next level. I love that they love and encourage my foodie silliness and think that it’s funny. It’s great.
As you guys may remember, my Office Bestie Lexy is currently on maternity leave, and her replacement Liz has been informed of my love of food and has already jumped heavily on the bandwagon. There was a meeting today and afterwards there was a bunch of leftover cookies, so she brought them straight into my office proclaiming “These are for you!”
Cookies fo’ me? This girl is after my own heart. She is a big gluten-free eater also, so last week when there was a free Subway lunch downstairs she offered to grab an extra sub for me! Let’s not get too crazy, but this is nice to have around.
I should end this by saying that yes, I am an indulger, for sure, and I do not count my calories. However, because I eat pretty healthfully on a regular basis, I allow myself to indulge if I have the chance. I typically eat about an 80/20 split, I’d say. 80 healthy, 20 treats! That is just on the reg, and may switch up.
Oh, and you bet those cookies came with a free lunch…
A big ol’ chicken quesadilla. Probably cooked in a bunch of oil, and not healthy. But you know what? My lunch was balanced by a very healthy breakfast.
Oatmeal cooked on the stove with almond butter and banana, and I added craisins, and pure maple syrup at the end.
It is all about balance my friends!
Have a great night!
Question of the evening:
- What is one funny thing your friends/coworkers make fun of you for?
