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.
Since I’m not as stressed out anymore due to actually doing drastic things to fix my life (aka singledom)…my appetite is back! O.O
My morning started off bright and early for a 35 minute lap swim. I just couldn’t stop my mind from going over and over that awful date so that’s why it was a short swim. I just couldn’t focus!
Once I got back to the apartment I made a PB&J quesadilla (no cheese…) with a glass of milk. Mmm devoured.
Well folks, Chase and I broke up for the final time. Yeah it’s been a hard few months and I finally just couldn’t take it any longer. (No I don’t want to talk about it so I’m basically going to leave those parts out of my blogs.) I really want to get back to myself though and part of that self is writing this blog and sharing with you all my passion for intuitive eating and nutrition. I hope you’re all still around to listen!
This morning I was up around 5am, hungry. I toasted two slices of whole wheat bread and slathered one with cashew butter and pumpkin butter, and the other with Costco’s new natural crunchy peanut butter and white raspberry jam. All with a big mug of 2% milk. Now that it’ll be just me I’m totally switching to 1%.
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 I finally found release from all the stress I’m under. Tell you about it shortly..food first. ~.^
First off I started my day with a bowl of Weetabix with half a pear, drizzle of sunflower seed butter, and some dried cherries.
So I had pretty much the most amazing morning…which I shouldn’t have! I got up at 6am, without any alarm and decided to relax.
So I made a bowl of pumpkin oatmeal topped with a spoonful of cashew butter, craisins, and maple syrup and ate it slowly in bed while I read my favorite book, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I ended up only eating 2/3 of the bowl, listening to my body.
Wow, I so need to catch you all up. I’m warning you though, these past few days have been really brutal on me so if you don’t want to hear a whole bunch of crying, and perhaps, bad decisions I totally understand if you skip these next few entries. I’ve been doing some real soul-searching.
I started off Thursday morning not being hungry for breakfast. =/ I’ve learned over the past few days that in times of very high stress I loose my appetite. So for breakfast I tried 0% Trader Joe’s Greek Yogurt Pumpkin flavor. I ate the whole thing but didn’t really enjoy it all that much. I wouldn’t buy it again.
I can’t believe how hard it is getting for me to remember what I had for breakfast the day before. >.< Seriously, I see the photo and go “I ate that!?” Stress is definitely getting to me.
Apparently I finished off the Stonyfield’s French Vanilla yogurt yesterday, with some Kashi GoLean Crunch and a banana. I’m sure it was good. ^_^
