Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Thank goodness I was feeling much better this morning. My nose was stuffy but my head wasn’t a balloon anymore. I was able to get up and complete my favorite upper body workout, that I will post for you guys soon. I also did 25 minutes on the ellytipcal.

I made myself what I call a Vitamin C Antioxidant smoothie after my workout. Perfect for getting over my sickness!

No time for smoothie bowls = drink right out of the glass.

It consisted of:

  • 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Tropicana¬†trop 50 orange juice
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

Slurp! …and yes that is a beer glass. Joe has many as he is in the restaurant/bar business.

Now for my post title. On my way to work I hit traffic and it took me an hour to get to the parking garage that normally takes me 15 minutes. Then, I got on the wrong train because the doors were closing, and the train I take is normally on that track and I noticed after we started moving. Then, when I got off at the next stop to transfer, all trains were suspended! I waited for the bus that never came, and then decided to take a different train to the city, and had to then transfer to the subway. It took me 2 and a 1/2 hours to get to work this morning, so now I am drowning in work after being off yesterday and late today. Phew! That’s my sad story for the day. It reminded me of the movie¬†“Planes, Trains, and Automobiles”. If you haven’t seen it, you should! It’s funny — when it’s not happening to you!

Do you have a rough commute to work or school? How do you hold your composure when everything seems to go wrong?
