Staying on Schedule

I feel like I’ve just been hungry and eating all day. >.< Starting my day at 4am really seems to throw off my eating schedule.

The morning started off right with a big bowl of Greek yogurt topped with flax, museli, raspberry jam, and Cookie Butter. Loved every bite. ^_^

I then walked the 1.5 miles in the rain to work and boy was I feeling sluggish. It should have been an espresso type of day..

But instead, the only thing that sounded good to my period belly was an Earl Grey tea. I cheated the system and added 3 pumps Vanilla and some steamed half and half for free since I’m a Gold Card Member. SO it was basically an Earl Grey Tea Latte, but $1 cheaper. ^^ Plus free refills so I pretty much had two. Along with my tea I got to sample Starbucks Dark Chocolate Covered Graham Cracker. These things are good!

Another thing I got to try today was the Starbucks Double Shot. Holy moly this drink is delicious! A Tall is 2 shots of espresso, 2 pumps Classic syrup, over ice and then topped with a little milk. It’s sugar and caffeine and tastes amazing. Each shot is 5 calories and each pump of syrup 20. So 60 calories plus a little milk! I’m definitely gonna buy one of these when I feel like coffee again. If this drink sounds good to you let me just warn you that it is sweet!

After walking the 1.5 miles back home and stopping at the public library to grab the next Harry Potter books, I still couldn’t make it til noon without a snack. I love hard boiled eggs.

For lunch I tossed together leftover whole wheat penne with frozen veggies, a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and goat cheese. It was yummy but needed more protein.

The sweet ending was a red bean mochi while I finished up Catching Fire. I still hate how this book ends. Peeta…noooooooo!

Lab went fine but I almost passed out while waiting for it to start. The caffeine in the tea woke me up this morning but it certainly didn’t keep me going like espresso shots do. I was ready to go to sleep!

The moment I got in the door of my apartment I went straight to the kitchen and made a cup of Starbucks Tribute with a cream and munched on a chocolate chip granola bar. I enjoyed this snack while I read the sweetest little letter from my life wife aka Ashton, my best friend! =) I can’t wait to see her this summer for her wedding.

Refueled, I hit the gym for 45 minutes of Hill stationary biking.

Around 5:30pm I couldn’t wait any longer for dinner. I really tried and therefore let myself get super hungry. >.< Whoops. Overeating incoming. Dinner was a piece of Veggie Enchilada casserole topped with fresh salsa, avocado, and shredded cheese with a side of frozen veggies.

But of course I still felt hungry so I ended up munching on two plates of crackers and cheese afterwards. I feel slightly sick. Bleh! I need to figure out different meal times when my day starts so freaking early. Trying to stay on my normal schedule seems to be messing me up.

That said, I finally have a day off tomorrow since someone ended up taking my shift! Woohoo!!!!! Have a good Friday everyone!
