First off, I am so sorry for the terribly short and quick post yesterday. Apparently starting school, working two jobs, keeping the apartment clean, taking care of kittens and taking care of myself is starting to wear me thin.
I love blogging and I love sharing my day with all of you but some days it just doesn’t want to happen. Last night for the first time (ever!) I actually thought about giving up on my blog. With my boring food lately and not having the time to adequately write a decent post (and sometimes the lack of reader interaction), it just didn’t feel like it was worth the time.
However, I’m not impulsive when it comes to big decisions. My 1 Year Blog Anniversary is coming up on May 17th so I’ve told myself to at least give it until then.
I know it’s hard to step out of your shell and communicate with someone you only know through text (Hell it took me over an entire year of reading blogs to ever comment on one) but if all of you could just write a simple Hello in the comments I’d be really grateful. =) I’m in need of a little morale boost.
Anyways I ate pretty decent today…I think. Let’s have a look shall we.
Breakfast was a tribute to a breakfast I ate in Japan in the summer of 2010. Banana and nutmeg oatmeal with chia in an almost empty peanut butter jar with a cup of coffee with cream. ❤ It was very very fluffy and hot. It warmed me up and kept me from getting back into bed.
That’s right instead of being lazy Chase and I hit the gym this morning! I did a sweaty 30 minute interval treadmill workout at 2% incline. It was pretty decent but I think I am getting bored with this workout I’ve done for almost 2 weeks now. I’m just afraid of wasting my time on a workout that’s not that good!
Once back at the apartment I refueled with a hard-boiled egg with salt and pepper. God I love these! Having this mini snack an hour before my lunch also helps me make smarter choices for lunch.
Lunch was a light Spring salad of crisp romaine, fresh strawberries, tangy goat cheese, and crunchy toasted walnuts drizzled with balsamic vinegar. On the side I ended up having two servings of Pirate’s Booty. I’m in love with this stuff again. I love the fluffy corny texture!
On my way from school to work today I became super super hungry. Luckily I’d packed this Clif Mojo Peanut Butter Pretzel bar for a snack. (Shh I ate on the bus!) It was surprisingly not that sweet nor salty. In fact, it didn’t have enough flavor for me and sadly by 7pm my stomach was very very hungry again.
Luckily (again) my bus was quick and I already had dinner cooked! Another big bowl of roasted vegetable minestrone soup topped with shredded parmesan and with a side of crackers and cheese (more than pictured). I also gave Chase’s Apple Cherry juice a try and it was very refreshing. I don’t normally like to drink my calories but this was totally worth it.
Well, I appreciate all of you who are still reading! I’m again exhausted and ready to climb into bed before 10pm. Have a good night everyone!
