It's the freakin' weekend!!!!!!
Thank goodness right? I am all about relaxing and getting some rest this weekend because it has been quite a long week.
Yesterday, I had a very scary thing happen to me but thankfully, no one got hurt. I'll explain later.
My day was long and started very early. I had to be at an event at 6:30am and was going to be interviewed for a piece written in our local newspaper.
Breakfast was quite and filling.
Chobani Pineapple, Kiwi, Blueberries, Granola
1/2 Whole Wheat Bagel with PB and Mashed Banana
The interview went well and after a busy morning and some more meetings, I made it back into the office right around lunch time.
Keeping up with my vow to eat lunch in for the rest of the week, I packed a salad the night before full of leftovers.
Leftover Tofu Eggplant Curry, Edamame Salad, Veggie Pot Stickers
This all came together very well. It looks like one big mess but I promise it tasted delicious.
Okay so after work is when my day got crazy. I left work and had intentions of going to the gym, like I do every day. Not a mile from when I left, I ran into a really bad accident that looked like it had just happened second ago. I pulled over to the side, ran out of my car and to the one car to see if the girl was okay. Me and another man were able to pull her out and take her to the side of the road, seeing that she was okay. I told the man to call 911 and looked over at the other car to see the girl not moving. I rushed over and started yelling to see if she was okay. No response. My first thought was, "Oh Dear Lord, please let her be alive."
After a minute of me screaming at her, she turned her head and I realized I knew her. She worked in my office. I asked her name and she told me. I told her my name and that I worked with her and I think she started to recognize me.
I told her the ambulance was on the way and that she was going be okay. I sat with her (being careful not to touch or move her because she indicated that her chest hurt and she couldn't move her legs). The police showed up shortly after and began to take over.
This was the scariest thing. As soon as I saw her not moving, I kept thinking, "Okay, you are going to have to perform CPR, you can do this." I was seriously ready to dive in and try to save her life.
This whole thing made me realize that I do have that ability to overcome fear and put my life aside for others. I was so thankful that I had just recently became certified in CPR and First Aid and when I told the Police Officer that, he thanked me and told me I did the right thing.
After this, I was really shaken up. I skipped the gym (obviously) and called Toly right away to tell him that I loved him.
Once I calmed down, I headed over to my sister's, which is where I was planning to go later that night.
I felt better once I got there and talked about everything.
We eventually worked on dinner.
Frozen pizza and salad was on the menu and I had brought a new TJ's frozen Vegetable Pizza for myself.
I'm not sure what it was, but I really didn't like this pizza. It just tasted weird. I'm wondering if it was the pizza or if it just had gone bad but I couldn't even stomach two bites. So unlike any Trader Joe's product so I'm hoping I just got a bad one. Has anyone ever had the Reduced Guilt Vegetable Pizza Primavera?
I ended up chucking this and eating a slice of my sister's Digorno and just took off the cheese. It was actually delicious!
Once we were done with dinner, Weston woke up hungry and wanted some pizza too. Unfortunately, he hasn't worked his way up to pizza quite yet but he has mastered oatmeal.
We cleaned up and worked on dessert. Ghiardeli double fudge brownies!!
We put on a movie but I fell asleep in the first 5 min. I think everything had just caught up with me because my body was so exhausted. I came home, went right to bed, and didn't wake up until 8am this morning!!!! I never sleep that long so I knew my body needed the rest. It felt great!
Busy day today!! I'll be back later.
