When I work alone on a Monday or Friday I keep the door to the studio locked just for a little extra safety. I let someone in and when they left they turned the lock on the door, which I didn't see. Normally when we lock it we just push it so it unlocks when we open...when you turn the little button it stays locked...you see where I'm going with this. I went to the deli to return some papers that I had faxed for them and when I tried to open the door to the studio it was locked. I got locked out. For 45 minutes. So I had to stay 45 minutes later to make up some time. Well I didn't have to but the whole point of adding hours was to get work done. Go figure.
I waited in the deli for my boss to let me in. I was sitting on a stool by the counter in the window when an older Italian man sat next to me and started chatting. He was very nice and owns the restaurant on the other side of the studio. We actually talked about my being vegan and he was really cool about it. So a few minutes in he started asking me about my relationship status and figured out I was single and immediately started trying to get me to go out with one of his chefs...who naturally was sitting next to him on the other side. It was very sweet but the whole set up thing makes me very uncomfortable. I'm very shy and guarded because of past experiences so being set up (especially by a stranger) is difficult for me. So the chef guy told me he'd bring me lunch and asked what time I eat lunch. So I told him I don't do a lunch break but I leave at 3:30. Wouldn't you know he turned up at 3:20 with lunch for me. It was incredibly sweet of him but it makes me feel even more uncomfortable. I can't explain why because it was so nice of him, and I am appreciative of the gesture. I don't know, maybe I feel some pressure from it now, and I don't want any extra pressure right now?
Such a strange week! I ended off with some great meals today though.
Breakfast was my last slice of Rice Almond bread toasted with almond butter and cinnamon and some fresh strawberries.
Late morning snack was an apple and some green tea.
This is the salad that was brought to me. I actually hadn't eaten lunch yet because I was trying really hard to finish editing the job I was working on. It was really good...some grilled veggies on a bed of fresh mixed greens and a vinaigrette. Perfect for eating a late lunch because I didn't want to eat something heavy before the gym. It was really nice of him to make it for me.
For dinner I wanted some comfort food so I got this small container of rice and beans with stewed zucchini and tomato for $2 at the deli. The pricing changes every time but it is never more than $3. I'll eat this in a little bit.
Did 45 minutes of cardio after work to blow off some steam. I'll go in tomorrow morning too before work. Hopefully the weirdness ends today because I just want things to be normal again.
This turned into a long post, sorry about that! Hope you all enjoy your Friday evening. I'm looking forward to just relaxing, maybe I'll make some herbal tea later.
