Ug. It’s been just one of those days where I don’t feel good about anything. You know that feeling that even though you ate a healthy lunch, you are as big and as jigglly as a whale? I blame my lady days. It’s really hard to ignore.
Even when I woke up I felt this way. Even while I did strength training at the gym I felt this way.
Eating a healthy breakfast of oats cooked with 1/2 a frozen banana and nutmeg and topped with sunflower seed butter, toasted almonds, and golden raisins didn’t make it go away.
There was one small shining moment when I splurged and got a short ristretto nonfat Vanilla Spice Latte (with light whip ) when I felt good…but about an hour or so later I couldn’t put off eating lunch any longer.
I’d brought leftover Moroccan chili, grapes, and a raspberry Chobani. Pretty healthy right? I felt gross. =/ I walked the 2 miles home from work and that helped a little…
But then I was hungry and needed a snack so I ate a snack baggie I’d made up of NatureBox dried pears and garlic sunflower seeds. I needed this snack because dinner was a loonnggg time coming. Why you say?
Because I baked my own bread!! I mixed up a batch of Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day Master Recipe yesterday, and today I finally got to shape it, rest it, and bake it in the oven! It turned out great. =) I love that it is mostly whole grain. I can’t wait to try different flours. I enjoyed a slice with leftover baked beans on top of a bed of romaine lettuce and topped with cheddar cheese, red bell pepper, and green onions. >.> I ended up eating two more slices of this amazing bread. I’m baking a new loaf tomorrow!
So yeah, still not feeling so great about me. It’s not just my body image that’s getting me down. I just feel glum. =/ Ophie understands. ❤
Here’s to tomorrow.
