I tend to over do it. I tend to overbook myself with work, freelance projects, social gatherings, and workouts. And with each thing I book, I give it my all. I still remember my mom saying to me once in a very matter of fact voice “I’m sorry but you’ve got my genes and let me tell you something about that, honey. You will most likely never be the smartest person in the room but there is a good chance you’ll be the hardest working and that may take you just as far”. I remember being very offended – like she was poking at my intelligence with this advice but through time I realized how right she was. Whatever I set out to do, I gave it my 100% all, all of the time. So, needless to say, when I get home every night at 6:30 or so, I’m exhausted, from a full day of putting my whole self into whatever I’m doing that day. And usually on top of exhaustion, I’m starving as well. Most days, I don’t even bother to take off my work clothes and shoes before I’m in the kitchen searching the fridge for what I can devour for dinner. Usually by this point in the day, I’m so hangry and my mind is mush that if I don’t get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes, it’s a loss cause. And that is exactly why I’ve been turning to little helpers like Alexia’s frozen vegetable sides (which happen to be vegetarian!) to help me get a head start on my meal.
