1st Day off The Master Cleanse

I failed!  I totally failed!  It was all going great!  I was drinking my orange juice, just minding my own business when all of a sudden I get an hour long lunch break.  So what's a girl to do?  Go to Central Market?  Good call!  That's what I did and I looked at food and I just couldn't say no.  I ate carrots and snow peas and green beans and rye crackers, and it was goooooood.  Then this evening I made some homemade veggie soup and that is also gooooooood.  I can't eat much so I only had half a cup.  There's a ton left.  Oh, and my step dad made me some fresh steamed baby spinach.  It's been veggie heaven today!

It was my first day at my new job today and it was so fun!  I love the people I work with.  Like I said, they're closer to my age.  I'm not the baby (THANK GOD!) but I'm also now known by my last name since there are already 2 others with my first.  It's weird.  Please try answering the phone by saying your last name.  Go ahead, just role play and do it.  SEE!  It's hard!  And weird!  I'm always really quiet when I answer the phone because I feel so awkward not using the name I've been using for the past 23 years.

The job itself has a lot to it.  I really didn't think so much went in to leasing an apartment, but since we're on site we deal with all of the maintenance requests, emergencies, marketing...just lots.  I think I'll do really well once I get in the swing of things and find my groove.  (That sounds like a song lyric)

Tomorrow I'm having lunch with the roomie.  She's going to attempt to live this healthy lifestyle that I'm planning on having now that I'm done with the fast.  If she follows through then it'll be really nice to have support just a door away when I want that humongous greasy burger (and I do want that humongous greasy burger) instead of lighter fare.  [Side story: I just saw an empty box of Cheez-Its and was like OOOHHHHH That looks GUD!  But then I remembered that it has dairy and I can't eat dairy yet.  Boo :( ]


  1. Nicole, I loves the blog and I loves you too! Thanks for the comment on my blog. Anonymous better reveal him/herself so we can get our wedding plans in gear...wedding season is almost over and I start to look pale again beginning Sept 1.

    I'm happy to find another English major with a blog, and I'll look forward to following your updates from now on. And yes, I now can't get David's Russian voice out of my head. Ahaha. Thank you for that.
