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.
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!
Woke up still pretty darn sick though so I kept breakfast simple and just had a bowl of Stonyfield’s Low Fat French Vanilla yogurt. Slid right down my aching throat with ease.
On my way to school I stopped at the open pharmacy and looked for the medicine that works for me, Theraflu. Sadly I found out there is a shortage of the stuff since they had to shut down some of their factories, but I found the last box of off-brand! Even though it was for “nighttime” I sipped it down during my first class, Medical Nutrition Therapy.
The teacher in this class seems awesome and I’m actually pretty interested in the subject.
Not gonna lie…it’s a little strange not having school or a job to take up my time right now. My new job, I haven’t told you guys about, got delayed due to the background check not being submitted. Soo…I have some free days!
Our fridge is pretty bare. I mean, we at least got produce yesterday when my CSA came but I still feel like I don’t have many options. Maybe I’m just too used to the plethora of options I had at my dad’s! Anyway I went with an Uncooked Tortilla with the last of my Adam’s Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter and some golden raspberry jam with milk for breakfast.
Man I have so much to share with you all today! ^_^
First off this is my latest bed buddy. =) Drusilla has been sleeping with me every night since I arrived. She just purrs and purrs until we fall asleep and then she wakes up with my swim alarm, crying her head off, probably saying “Where the hell are you going so early!?” I feel bad that I’ll be leaving her in mid-September. =(
I woke up early (Vincent decided) and decided to finish off the last two biscuits of Weetabix for breakfast, mixed with 1/3 cup of these interesting Quinoa Puffs I found. I was hoping they’d be amazing like puffed amaranth but…they pretty much tasted burnt. I think the company definitely over cooked them! I ate the cereal with half a banana, fresh blueberries, and toasted walnuts. It was okay…but even Vinni didn’t want to lick the bowl.
I think I’m done with cereal for awhile but I’ve just got to say I’m super proud that I can just say that. Cereal used to be an all time trigger food for me and it wasn’t until I allowed myself to eat it everyday that it lost it’s power.
I totally had cake for breakfast. My favorite Good Food Store Vegan Orange Poppy Seed cake….with a carton of nonfat milk. ^_^ I actually picked it up before bowling last night but didn’t feel like sweets for once. I figure it was either this or a huge muffin so I think I made the smarter choice.
