More Sushi Plz

Slowly chugging along to get caught up! Let’s see where were we…Sunday!

Sunday I opened with my favorite shift leader, Aireen. ❤ She always gives you breaks on time and is super efficient. We were both dead tired though. I only got four hours of sleep. Why? Because I simply could not fall asleep. =( I’ve never had sleep problems before, but all of a sudden it’s taking me over an hour to drift off.

Coffee was definitely needed. I believe I had my Turkish coffee and a baggie of dried apricots and raw almonds. My tummy was surprisingly hungry after all that sushi the night before!

Metagenics

Geez it’s been so long it took me a little bit to figure out where I left off. Looks like Friday was my big melt down. Ug. And now my Lightroom isn’t even wanting to cooperate so I can show you guys the photos…Is this a sign? ./sigh

Friday

So like I said, Friday started off with me just feeling bad about myself. Just one of those days where you wake up and feel flabby and worthless.

Even though I knew I might be getting breakfast with my friends (we were carpooling to a field trip for my supplements class) I started my day off with a green smoothie. This was around 5:30am.

‘Twas the Day Before Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! I’m realizing that the problem with being used to getting up at 3am is that when I can finally sleep in 8am is as good as it gets. >.< My poor sister is gonna get tired of my early birdness fast me thinks. We are sharing a bed!

Anyway, yesterday morning was the same thing. I was up at 8 and back home with my Dad by 10am. We stopped at Treasure State Donuts though to grab a dozen and say happy holidays to my good friend, Steph! It’s always nice to see her. =)

Starbucks Eating

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.

Last Classes

Sorry I was MIA last night! You’ll see why I had no time to post. =(

Thursday

I started my day off with another green smoothie! I’m obsessed with these right now. They are so good I don’t even change up the ingredients though I know I should for more variety and to just play around with it. Spinach, yogurt, milk, frozen mango, frozen banana, fresh lemon juice, fish oil, and coconut oil. It makes about 1.5 of my little to go-cups and is sooo smooth, creamy, and refreshing.

Papa

papa

I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of my grandpa Harry, always known by me as Papa. He passed yesterday after a long and full life. I’ll always remember driving up to Idaho to visit him and my grandma when I was little. We’d get in the car and sing songs the entire way, play the humming game, and always stop for ice cream. My favorite thing to do at there little place on Pondera Lake was to go on Papa’s boat. Sometimes he’d let me drive it. =)

Goodbye Papa. I’m so glad you are finally at peace.

One Good Sunday

Yesterday was pretty much a perfect Sunday. =)

I slept in for the first time in probably over a month! That’s right, once 8am rolled around though, my body said “Feed me!”. I made another awesome green smoothie with the same ingredients that I’ve been hooked on: fresh spinach, frozen mango, one big scoop of nonfat yogurt, 3/4 cup milk, coconut oil, and fish oil. This baby was the perfect amount and consistency. I’m getting better. ~.^

(Off topic: see my cross stitch!? I finally was able to get the inside lines correct.  Now I just can wait for the next part of the pattern to be released in order to fill it in. ^_^)

Some Days

During this time of upheaval, some days I have to be grateful that I just ate when I was hungry. No today wasn’t full of wholesome foods, but it’s just one day out of my life.

I was up at 2am to get ready for work and man was I hungry. I ate a super early morning snack of a cherry Chobani Champion. These little tubes are so creamy!

What went unpictured at work was two samples of our new pastries: Pecan Tart and Caramel Pecan Sticky Bun. Both are very sweet, but the stick bun wins in the yum department.
