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.
Man I just can’t keep up! =/ Honestly though, I feel like I’m getting back in charge of my life, very slowly, day by day. It feels good but it’s still like sitting on a scared horse that’s ready to bolt at any moment. I just try to hold on tight and keep in control.
When I felt like a smoothie for breakfast, I made one. If I got hungry again later, I know I could eat. This baby was delicious with fresh spinach, nonfat yogurt, 1% milk, frozen mango, coconut oil, and fish oil.
Hey all! I need to make this post semi-quick because Chase and I are packing away! That’s right, he finally let us go buy some U-Haul boxes instead of waiting for boxes from Waylon (as he slowly unpacks his new house) or seeing what few boxes the liquor store has each day!
I slept in until 10am and then made a not so great smoothie. I’m out of lettuce or spinach so I used kale as my greens. Bleh. Kale is just too potent for smoothies in my opinion. It’s al I could taste. The milk, Greek yogurt, frozen pineapple, banana, and coconut oil were no where to be found on my taste buds. I was also hungrier than normal so I ate half of a Costco poppy seed muffin.
It started with me unable to wake up this morning. I had to have three alarms before I got my butt out of bed which I never need. I’m normally a one and done kind of girl! But I’ve just been so out of it in the morning. Seriously, when the kittens bugged me for food really early in the AM, I got up, went over to their food bowl, got them some water, and went back to bed. I never fed them! O.O I realized my mistake around noon….
Anyway for breakfast I had whole wheat toast, one with crunchy PB, fig butter and banana, and the other with sunflower seed butter (it’s back!), Meyer lemon marmalade, and banana. With a caramel drizzle latte. And even that latte didn’t wake me up! =(
I had the time to make a hot breakfast this morning…but all I wanted to eat was Weetabix! That’s right, Weetabix is back in the house! Listening to my body, I topped a bowl with banana, chopped up dried apricots, and toasted walnuts. Mmmmm I’d missed this.
Good gods I woke up tired this morning. Seriously, I stumbled my way into the shower unable to keep my eyes open I felt so dead! Ug. I had a really un-restful dream. I was being hunted down, like an animal!…It was very bizarre. I used Facebook to tell the police my location so the people wouldn’t kill me! Odd right?
Anyway, since we were milk-less and Weetabix-less this morning, I made toast with crunchy peanut butter, one with fig butter, and one with Meyer lemon ginger marmalade. Both were pretty darn tasty (still working on deciding if the fig is a win or not!) but damn did I need some creamy milk to wash it down!
I'd like to tell you all that my day improved after my last post but it didn't. =( At the moment though I'm feeling decent.
I didn't feel like Weetabix this morning and instead made whole wheat toast topped with crunchy Adam's peanut butter on one, Dark Chocolate Dreams on the other, both with huckleberry jam and cut up banana. Washed down with a mug of milk. <3 Vinni was pretty disappointed and gave me the cold shoulder.
