A word about today’s eats: Can’t win them all..and that’s okay.
Morning started with half of a satsuma. I ended up eating the other half later in the morning on a break. I really wasn’t even hungry for this, but starting my metabolism up is important to me so I ate.
Ok guys, it appears that I need a break. =/ I just don’t even have time to cry so I don’t have time to blog then either! I wanted to show you my Sunday because it was pretty special but then I’m gonna be gone for at least a week.
Sunday started off with a lovely bowl of pumpkin oats topped with a spoonful of TJ’s Pumpkin Butter and craisins. Loved the warmth it brought me.
Whaaa. I feel like I can just not keep up.
Friday morning half a pear was eaten before 4am.
So…clearly I’ve been gone. It’s been a very rough time again. =/ This time it was more personal issues that I’m definitely not going to go into so I’ll just say bare with me? I’m going to try and piece together what I ate over the last few days.
Started off around 3:30am with half a pear.
Yesterday started really badly, but ended well. I guess that’s better than the other way around right?
Anyway I woke up with puffy eyes and a sadness in my heart.
I think my boss could tell I was not all there today. She let me have my 10 minute break pretty darn early where I consumed an attempt at a chocolate orange espresso drink. Three shots with freeze dried orange slices that have been steeped in hot water and a pump of mocha. I also ended up adding a splash of half and half because man was the orange water STRONG. I couldn’t drink the whole thing but it was a nice idea.
Yesterday started off pretty late with a batch of Kodiak Cakes turned into Hello Kitty waffles! I topped mine with a little butter, maple syrup, toasted walnuts, and dried tart cherries. Ok waffles are definitely not my favorite thing since I like things thin. Chase loved them though and ate two whole batches! Yay for getting my man to eat whole grains!
It was so nice to wake up in my own bed yesterday surrounded by my fluffy babies! I’m lucky, this time they decided not to hold a grudge and just love me. ^_^
Unfortunately our fridge is pretty bare so breakfast was pretty bleh. Kirkland Nonfat Greek Yogurt, crunchy peanut butter, golden raspberry jam (from the Missoula Farmer’s Market) and raw oats. Later I added some dried cherries for texture. Honestly, I didn’t eat it all. =/ It just wasn’t very good.
Aww Saturday. How I will miss having nothing to do on Saturdays. <3
Started around 7am with 3/4ths of a bagel covered with peanut butter, raspberry freezer jam, and my dad’s newly made plum jam. I was too full to eat the other 1/4th. I know I’m totally going overboard by making both halves when I used to just make one!
With my morning I got myself out there and did some errands. Got a few things at Target, went to Michael’s and bought the correct needles for my cross-stitch, and browsed Barnes & Nobel just for funsies.
60 minute lap swim practicing flip-turn and breaststroke. Felt like I was swimming through pudding. =( Very tired.
Treasure State Donut’s Blueberry Lemon donut with 1% milk.
So I’m not going to have much time to write tomorrow morning (office donut run followed by interviews), so I figured I’d just get you all caught up on my life tonight. ^_^ Hope you don’t mind.
This morning I was up super early (5:25am) to get my dad to the airport. He’s off back to California for my cousin’s wedding! Clearly, I was needed here so I sent him off with orders to take pictures of (at least) the bride (my cousin, Diana!) and the cake. ~.^
When I got back home I climbed back into bed until 8:30 am when I woke up ready for breakfast. It was rainy and cold out so I felt like a hot breakfast of toasted sesame seed bagel with peanut butter and two kinds of jam, raspberry freezer jam and local peach jam. All washed down with a big mug of 1% milk.
