I was up early at 7am since Ophelia decided that was the time I needed to get up. After waiting around a half hour, I figured out what I wanted for breakfast: PB&J “quesadilla” with a mug o’ milk. Need more PB&J in my life.
I’m not so sure on my eating yesterday. I felt like I was doing really well for most of the day, and then things went bad at home and I gave up.
My my day started with a double short ristretto soy Gingerbread Latte. The spiced whip cream on this drink is the best dang part! Seriously worth it. I really needed this too. I was hungry and very very tired. =/ My sleep isn’t going well.
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.
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.
Today was a really great day. In fact, so great, that I’m worried I don’t have time to give it justice before bed, but if I don’t write I’ll forget all the amazing things about it!
Let’s see..on my first 10 minute break I had a ristretto double short Americano with one pump peppermint and some steamed soy. It was so so. To be honest our espresso machines have been worked on and they just don’t seem to produce the same taste anymore. Honestly I drink them because I need the caffeine.
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.
I have a confession. I have no idea what I drank yesterday. >.< Another reason I should stay on top of my blog posts huh? Pretty sure this was three ristretto shots..hot water…a pump of….pumpkin spice? and a splash of cream. Sure, yeah that was it. ^_^
