I was up early at 7am since Ophelia decided that was the time I needed to get up. After waiting around a half hour, I figured out what I wanted for breakfast: PB&J “quesadilla” with a mug o’ milk. Need more PB&J in my life.
I’m not so sure on my eating yesterday. I felt like I was doing really well for most of the day, and then things went bad at home and I gave up.
My my day started with a double short ristretto soy Gingerbread Latte. The spiced whip cream on this drink is the best dang part! Seriously worth it. I really needed this too. I was hungry and very very tired. =/ My sleep isn’t going well.
Sorry I was MIA last night! You’ll see why I had no time to post. =(
I started my day off with another green smoothie! I’m obsessed with these right now. They are so good I don’t even change up the ingredients though I know I should for more variety and to just play around with it. Spinach, yogurt, milk, frozen mango, frozen banana, fresh lemon juice, fish oil, and coconut oil. It makes about 1.5 of my little to go-cups and is sooo smooth, creamy, and refreshing.
I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of my grandpa Harry, always known by me as Papa. He passed yesterday after a long and full life. I’ll always remember driving up to Idaho to visit him and my grandma when I was little. We’d get in the car and sing songs the entire way, play the humming game, and always stop for ice cream. My favorite thing to do at there little place on Pondera Lake was to go on Papa’s boat. Sometimes he’d let me drive it. =)
Goodbye Papa. I’m so glad you are finally at peace.
Today I was definitely better than yesterday. I just didn’t let my thoughts go to sad places and it turned out alright. =)
Started it off right with a green smoothie! That’s right, I’m now back in business with: fresh spinach, low-fat yogurt, milk, frozen banana, frozen mango, fresh squeezed lemon juice, coconut oil, and fish oil. It’s kind of funny that I like these smoothies since I normally need more texture in my meals.
This is what got me through the day today. I feel like too often I let myself be in a rut because “I’ve been through a lot lately so it’s okay to feel this way” when, if you tell yourself that everyday, it never gets any better. So each day now I just try to be better than I was the day before. It really helped thinking like that. No it wasn’t a great day by any means, but it was better than yesterday and that to me is progress.
Sunday was another mediocre day for me. I managed to sleep in until 8am (after only waking up once), then realized how hungry I was and made breakfast.
I made what I felt like too. Pumpkin Kodiak Cakes drizzled with maple syrup, almond butter, and sprinkled with craisins. The pumpkin always makes these cakes sooo moist. I loved them.
And then after eating I realized just how tired I still was and went back to sleep until noon. Yeah, it was one of those mornings. It didn’t help that it was the darkest and dreariest day we’ve had in a long time.
Playing massive catch-up today. I’ve had some really great days and some bad ones, so I’ve been avoiding everything. Plus there’s been a real lack of vegetables and a plethora of refined carbohydrates…
I tried to set myself up on a good start for Thanksgiving morning with a Chobani Champion tube. Get my metabolism going nice and early.
