So my new allergy pills have the side effect of “loss of appetite” which sounds like a good thing right? Well..I’m having issues with it now.
Breakfast for example was a hodge podge of things instead of my usual big hearty meal. I finally got to try a Chobani Flip in Key Lime Crumble flavor, along with a hard boiled egg and an orange. The Flip was tasty and Vinni approved, but a little too sweet. Something decent for when you’re really in the mood for a treat.
After this small breakfast, I hit the gym for a sweaty 60 minute hill stationary bike. I was going to go 30 more minutes to make up for taking Monday off but honestly my body screamed no.
I apologize that these posts keep falling behind. =/ It’s going the same way with my studying. I just have no motivation!!! So…let me get yesterday’s post done before I go on to today.
I really need to remind myself just to stay calm.
Ug! I wish I could tell you all that my ordeal with the bus company was fixed today, but it was not. After a lot of phone calls I eventually just went to my credit card company and filed a dispute. Let me just say it’s not okay to take someone’s money and not give them what they paid for! It’s even less okay to then tell them they don’t have the authority to ask for it back. –_-
With this whole bus thing falling through, I’m very happy that I have a new carpool buddy in my new friend, Danae!
I was up early this morning to make it to the bus on time though. I decided it was way too early for a workout so I just showered and ate a very simple breakfast of 1/2 cup (and the very last) of the Cranapple oil free granola with skim milk, a cut-up pluot, and a sprinkle of walnuts. Not very heavy but…
Sorry all but I am too livid right now with the bus company to write anything nice. They took my money and are refusing to give it back!
Anyway I got up early and di a 30 minute treadmill interval workout at 1.0 incline. And here’s my food.
Be back tomorrow (hopefully with this situation fixed)
Today was a day filled with “firsts” for me. ~.^
Nope not with breakfast. I’ve had cereal many many times in my life. This bowl was with the last of the Kashi 7 Grain Puffs and a 1/2 cup of Oil Free Cranberry Apple Granola my mum got me at a Farmer’s Market in Idaho awhile back. I topped it with a pluot and a sprinkle of toasted walnuts. It surprisingly held me over until lunch!
So yesterday was packed full of eating out! Crazy, right? I tried to make the best decisions I could but I am still ready to just eat at home today.
As normal, it started off right. Big ol’ bowl of Greek yogurt topped with chia, banana, raw oats, sunflower seed butter, and a pinch of butterscotch chips since I knew I needed another texture in there but am sadly out of dried fruit. (gasp) Turns out not really a fan of butterscotch chips. =P I better get my butt down to TJ’s today and find some amazing dried fruit.
Determined to get in shape for wedding season (I have three upcoming!), I got up at 6:30am to hit the gym even though work wasn’t until 9am. I only did 45 minutes stationary hill biking because, as I thought about what I wanted for breakfast and what I was going to wear to work, I felt like I didn’t have enough time! Must get up earlier…
I went straight to the kitchen when I was finished sweating to make a cold creamy bowl of love. Greek yogurt, ground flax, raw oats, strawberries, blueberries, golden raisins, and, of course, a spoonful of sunflower seed butter.
I may have to start buying two cases of Greek yogurt at Costco on grocery day! I’m already on the second container. >.<
Today was so eventful and fun-filled! If I could, I would be a professional tourist. ~.^
My day started off with my babies laying on my chest waking me so they could have their breakfast. Good thing they did too! I forgot I don’t have my alarm already set on Sunday so we were almost late in picking up Sandy and Dave for our day of adventure!
Even though I wasn’t starving (last nights dinner was huge), I decided to eat breakfast anyway. I knew if I didn’t, I would end up very cranky and dizzy in the middle of our planned tour that started at 11am. Greek yogurt, ground flax, Kashi Golean crunch, frozen blueberries, PB Co. White Chocolate Wonderful! Mmm mmm good.
Did you all have a fun holiday? I sure did even though I also had my first day of work as an optometry receptionist. Today was very eventful!
I started off my day with a vow to incorporate greens into every meal. For breakfast I made a healthy shamrock shake, and a toasted English muffin with butter and cocoa/coffee/sugar grinds.
