I am impatient with my impatience!

I'm needing to have another Be Patient talk with myself.
Whenever I leave the gym after a session with Bob, I feel great. I feel thin, strong, athletic. I feel all the things that I want to be. And that is fabulous... of course it is! 
However, inevitably, I look down. Or I run into a mirror.
Wait a minute! Why am I still so fat? Why do my arms look like that, when I can FEEL the lean muscle working in there? Why is my belly just blorpin' around when clearly, I should be six-packin' it?!

Barf. Reality. 

Good things come to those who wait.
It's not the destination, it's the journey.
Mile by mile, it takes awhile. Inch by inch, it's a cinch!

I know, I know!
I tell myself these things daily. But I still can't get over this disappointment, every day, over not being closer to where I want to be. 

Well, if it makes you feel better... I annoy myself with these little impatient sprees as much as I annoy you! 

In other news... I made a salmon curry masala tonight for dinner with sweet taters and a yogurt basil sauce for coolin' the mouth. I'm not sure why it didn't occur to me to take pictures, because it was really very tasty. So, I apologize for that! 

At work yesterday, we had our annual Summer Kick Off Party. Which included a Meatball Throwdown (cooking challenge) and a scavenger hunt. 
Here's some pics:

Yah, I like to doodle. WUT.


 So many crockpots! 

So many balls!
(no, that is not my plate. I did not eat any balls!)

They took my suggestion for next week's throwdown secret ingredient...
