It Can Be Done!

Not having a ton of papers to write, nor work, nor social obligations, totally allows me to have time to post!

This morning started off hard. Knowing I had plans in the evening, my workout buddy, Nick, and I agreed to meet at the gym at 6am. Boy did I feel that when I slid out of bed. On top of being tired and very sore from the previous workout, I was also very hungry! So for “breakfast” I had a banana and peanut butter with a glass of 1% milk.

Then off to the gym I went! 30 minute elliptical, 25 minute strength training, 5 minute stretch. Then I had to rush home!

Arg. It’s so hard playing catch-up like this. =/ Are you sure you guys really care what I eat? My photos have gone sooo downhill since I just don’t have time to make things pretty anymore.

Sunday was super rough because at 7am I got a call from my shift leader asking if I could come into work early since someone went home sick. I wasn’t supposed to work until 10 am! Of course I told her I’d be there and got straight to work.

However, I didn’t have breakfast so while working, I had to slowly eat some things. I didn’t get photos (duh) but I can certainly remember:

1/4 of a vegetable & Fontiago breakfast sandwich (Meh this new sandwich is a lot heartier than the previous Vegetable Artisan sandwich, but it still isn’t very tasty IMO)

1/2 of a blueberry scone

One chocolate smoothie with two add shots

I know O.O A lot! But this was eaten over a period of hours and continually being on my feet.

Rainy Friends

I know it’s my own fault that my life is so go-go-go. But for some reason I’m having trouble changing that. Perhaps it’s because I’m afraid if I don’t hang out with people, I’ll lose friends fast (like in The Sims! Did anyone else grow up playing that game? It’s apparently scarred me for life.).

Well let me try to get you up to date, at least for Thursday.

Up early and had an old favorite: oatmeal with mixed berries and chia seeds cooked in and topped with a spoonful of peanut butter and dried cranberries. Mm! I always forget how much this satisfies me.

I thought about sitting around and doing some homework reading..then had this idea that I could do that reading on the bike!! Sadly, at that time in the morning, it takes double the time to get to my gym due to traffic. -_- So I only got in a 30 minute bike before I had to head back home to get ready for class. Oh well. Better than nothing!

Focus

Man when I get behind, I get behind!

First off, I wanted to say thank you for all the kind words and thoughts my way. =) I really am doing okay. I think the turning point for me is acknowledging to myself I’m not okay so I can work on making myself okay. Such as getting out of conversations I’m uncomfortable such as talking about dieting, and really trying to focus on just getting through my school work so I can graduate.

Monday’s breakfast was a delicious yogurt bowl of texture. Starbucks Greek honey parfait with a ripe plum and dry almond butter. You know when all the dry parts are stuck to the bottom of the jar? That’s where I’m at right now and I refuse to waste any of it!

Portobello Baby

Morning everyone. =) I finally have a full day off from everything so let me get caught up here! I opened Saturday morning so I was up bright and early at 4am.

By my first 10 minute break I was hungry and my boss had brought in homemade chocolate chip cookies. Yes, I normally don’t like chocolate in my cookies but I ate one with an iced Sumatra Blue Batalk Clover Brewed Coffee. Delicious. Man unsweetened coffee with a sweet treat is good.

My Furballs

I actually got a good night’s sleep last night. It felt so great to wake up to these smiling faces. Aren’t they just the cutest little bed buddies you’ve ever seen? They were just lined up next to my face like this.

For awhile a few weeks back, I felt like I didn’t need any one. That I truly had no connections or ties to keep me in place. Not even my babies. But now I’m starting to feel more like myself again and know that these are my kids. I never want to bring a child into this world, so this is it. These are the faces I put all my love and motherly care. And I cannot be parted from them.

This morning I was very excited to try the new Starbucks Greek yogurt raspberry lemon parfait, but I knew that wouldn’t be enough by itself so I had somewhat of a hodge podge of things. Hard boiled egg, banana and peanut butter, and finished off the Evolution Pineapple Coconut Water.

First off: wow. This parfait is amazing. Tart raspberry plus creamy lemon = perfection. It is a little higher in calories than the other two parfaits though by about 100 kcals. Totally worth it in my opinion.

Not Perfection

Well I have been a busy girl since last I posted! Luckily I did not lose my camera so I can catch up!

After a fun night of drinking (3 glasses of wine), I always feel like a hot eggy breakfast at work. So I grabbed myself a Spinach Feta Wrap and an Evolution Super Green juice and felt so much better.
