This is what I kept having to remind myself this morning because for some reason, I felt very very alone.
Sorry I was MIA last night! You’ll see why I had no time to post. =(
I started my day off with another green smoothie! I’m obsessed with these right now. They are so good I don’t even change up the ingredients though I know I should for more variety and to just play around with it. Spinach, yogurt, milk, frozen mango, frozen banana, fresh lemon juice, fish oil, and coconut oil. It makes about 1.5 of my little to go-cups and is sooo smooth, creamy, and refreshing.
I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of my grandpa Harry, always known by me as Papa. He passed yesterday after a long and full life. I’ll always remember driving up to Idaho to visit him and my grandma when I was little. We’d get in the car and sing songs the entire way, play the humming game, and always stop for ice cream. My favorite thing to do at there little place on Pondera Lake was to go on Papa’s boat. Sometimes he’d let me drive it. =)
Goodbye Papa. I’m so glad you are finally at peace.
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.
Today may have been better food choice-wise, but emotionally I felt depressed.
I was absolutely starving for breakfast so I scarfed down Weetabix, sunflower seed butter, craisins, and hemp seeds with 1% milk. Yum!
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 Mom, we’ve been doing it very outdated.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. =/
I woke up this morning with a throat that hurts to swallow and a nose that won’t stop dripping so I just wanna get this posted and get back into bed ASAP.
Breakfast: Kashi GoLean Crunch Honey Almond Flax with nectarine.
Man we kept our weekend packed full of things and yet I had a great time. ^_^
Started off with a bowl of Kashi Golean Vanilla Graham Clusters with toasted walnuts and dried cherries. I bought this cereal thinking it would be like another cereal I loved (which I am still on the lookout for) but I really don’t like this one. Very…like eating twigs. No flavor in anything!
I’m pretty darn lucky that I had a day off right after we got back from San Diego! Poor Chase had to go to work this morning.
Me? I slept in until 9am then made a PB&J tortilla with a glass of milk for breakfast. Not ready to get back to green smoothies yet since I have absolutely no vegetables!!
