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.
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.
I haven’t forgotten to post about Tuesday!! Just getting behind…already. -_-
Breakfast: whole wheat toast with crunchy peanut butter, one with pumpkin butter, one with huckleberry, and the very last of the 1% milk. =( I’m always sad when the milk runs out but at least I’m not wasting any!
Can we all just take a moment to check out the beauty of this photo my Dad took out on some lonely lake in Montana yesterday? Wow right? How could you not be at peace there. It makes me long to be home.
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.
Well the world just keeps on turning. Thank you all so much for your kind comments and emails. They really mean a lot to me. Sometimes you just need unconditional support in the decisions you make. <3
Ok so yesterday I was up early (forgot to feed the babies dinner last night..) and headed off for an early morning 60 minute lap swim. It was a really great one, especially since the guy in the lane next to me was a retired swim coach so he totally gave me pointers on my breaststroke! Mom, we’ve been doing it very outdated. ~.^ I’m excited to perfect it more.
After the swim I got back home and made a breakfast of cashew butter and pumpkin butter toast with the last of the milk. Not very original I know. You’ll find my original food brain is absent. =/
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.
Yesterday (my only day off) was spent with two very special birthday babies! That’s right, Vincent and Ophelia are now 6 years old! Both of them got new collars for their birthdays which, of course, you cannot see because they are so fluffy. -_- Vinni’s is Batman themed though and Ophie’s is black with white polka dots and frills. I’m so proud of my gentle giants!
