Another wet, dry and blah day here in the DC area. I am sooooo over this weather.
Mother’s day was lovely with temps in the 70s and plenty of sunshine!!! I guess Mother Nature knew how important that day was 😉
Today’s word: Dilemma
a situation in which a difficult choice has to be made between two or more alternatives, especially equally undesirable ones.
At first thought, I thought I had a great post planned out for today’s Wednesday Word and then as I looked at the definition of dilemma, I thought hmmmm I never really looked at dilemma in that way. I usually think of dilemmas as to do or not to do….not so much difficult decisions but just should I do this or do that instead.
So I thought I would just write about the daily dilemmas that I encounter everyday:
-To hit the snooze or not to hit the snooze…..usually hitting the snooze wins. I have had to set an alarm on my second phone (which I have put in the bathroom), to make sure that I get up out of the bed.
–To follow the prescribed workout plan or do one that fits the schedule.……usually it is combination of both. The new training I am doing requires alot of time, so I find myself doing most of the moves but I may cut down the reps to make sure that I am done by time my ‘Workout Done’ alarm goes off.
–Coffee in my protein shake or not…..I found a plant based protein powder at Costco. It is in creamy fudge. It is actually pretty good by itself but I love putting flavored coffee in my morning protein shakes too. So usually coffee wins.
–To have egg white again or not…..my usual morning breakfast is egg whites with oatmeal or sweet potato. I try to mix up the flavor and the blah of egg whites by adding salsa or avocado, etc but I tell ya….I am so over the egg whites. I know there are other protein rich, healthy breakfasts I can have…but the morning are so busy that egg whites are so always the quick solution. Any suggestions/recipes for me for other breakfast options?
–To cook the kiddies breakfast or will it be cereal again…… yeah remember how I talked about the mornings being so rushed….so cereal it is most mornings. I too pair it with fruit though. If I pre plan the night before, I am able to cook them breakfast in the mornings but pre planning is not quite consistent yet. (a work in progress) My new plan was to make a batch of pancakes on Sunday with boiled eggs so that I can pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds and BAM! Breakfast!….that plan hasn’t happened yet….but it will.
–What to wear…..between this Seattle like weather and my office feeling like Alaska in February, I have the hardest time figuring out what to wear every day.
–What to cook for dinner (oh crap…as I am typing this I realized I forgot to take meat out for dinner…uuugh!!)….Somehow, I have become that lady that sometimes cooks 2 meals at dinner. I am working on cooking one meal and doing as my mom did (if you are hungry, you will eat it!) My kids are pretty good at eating whatever I cook, the hubby….not so much-lol!!
–To go to bed on time or not….I have 10:30 as my bed time. Lights off, mask on, go to bed!! Often, my daughter is up way past her bedtime and tends to come into our room when she can’t sleep. So my bedtime is often interrupted by her. I also tend to be on my phone or computer and as we all know this is a no…no for a proper bedtime ritual. I have set another scheduled break on my phone through the Quality Time to turn off my phone at 10pm. This has helped me shut down at 10, read a bit and fall asleep….until my daughter comes in that is.
