Ug. I’m exhausted. Today was really hard emotionally. Too much time to sit around and think. Think about letting go of what I thought was my dreams. Accepting that I have some issues I need to work on. Trying to figure out how to tell people about those issues.
All the thinking was very emotional.
I was up around 7am. That’s sleeping in for me. Then I made a hot breakfast of Kodiak Cakes with maple syrup, almond butter, fresh plum, and dried cranberries.
Being productive, I got a lot of preparing done for my last counseling session tomorrow for my Nutritional Counseling class. I feel prepared and ready to finish this assignment.
Hm so my Lightroom is just suddenly dead for now. Expect my photos to not look as good (ha!) as normal and I’ll fix it when I have time!
After a night of drinking, I know I want a hot breakfast to help myself feel better. So this time (since I magically didn’t work until 9am) I made sure to get up in time to make one! I made pumpkin Kodiak Cakes with almond butter, maple syrup, and dried cranberries. They completely sucked at staying together! Pumpkin just makes it all too moist. It hit the spot though.
So my breakfast photo looked so bad yesterday even my camera didn’t want to hold on to it! >.< For reals, it’s not there. I made Kodiak Cakes with pumpkin mixed in but I use the wrong pan to cook them in so they just looked like a pile of orange crumbles. I knew that pan wasn’t gonna work but I was too tired to wash the good one. Lesson learned.
I enjoyed them with a drizzle of almond butter, maple syrup, and Craisins, alongside a mug of milk.
There is so much I want to write about that happened Monday. =/ So much, that I can’t find the words nor the time to get it all out. =[ Let’s just say, I’m really coming to terms with who I am. It’s not so easy to just force yourself to be something else. I can’t talk about this right now, but I will seriously try to write a post in the future.
Instead I’ll talk about my failure of a day, eating wise.
I woke up super early to get some last minute cramming in and made myself a yummy breakfast of pumpkin Kodiak cakes topped with maple syrup, dried cranberries, almonds, and eventually some almond butter. Delicious and so moist.
First off I need to apologize for this horribly blurry photo! Clearly I was in such a rush due to hunger to take more. >.< I’m so sorry!
I got up yesterday on my one day off from everything, at 6am. Yeah don’t ask me why, but I was awake and ready to get stuff done!
I made a breakfast of Kodiak Cakes drizzled with almond butter and maple syrup and some milk. They were thick instead of thin this time, and you know what? I enjoyed them!
So I went to bed at old lady time last night, before 10pm! Due to that I was up by 7am, ready to start on my epically long to-do list. I cleaned the kitchen, did laundry, made the bed, hung up clothes, did the dishes, got packages together for mailing, and even started on some homework..
Around 9am though I finally figured out what I wanted for breakfast. Kodiak Cakes! Made super thin and drizzled with maple syrup and topped with fresh banana and toasted cashews. Super tasty.
Next up I did a lot of homework and still felt like I didn’t make a dent. =( Also…my stomach was stupid sick all morning, even before the pancakes. I felt like I kept having to head to the restroom.
I had such a great day today. For the first time in forever, I 100% felt like this was the life I wanted to be living. I had no regrets and nothing to worry about. I just was myself. =)
Sunday was another mediocre day for me. I managed to sleep in until 8am (after only waking up once), then realized how hungry I was and made breakfast.
I made what I felt like too. Pumpkin Kodiak Cakes drizzled with maple syrup, almond butter, and sprinkled with craisins. The pumpkin always makes these cakes sooo moist. I loved them.
And then after eating I realized just how tired I still was and went back to sleep until noon. Yeah, it was one of those mornings. It didn’t help that it was the darkest and dreariest day we’ve had in a long time.
It felt so great to have a complete day off yesterday. No school, no work, no workout. Just me.
I started by sleeping in until 9am, waking up burritoed by kittens, then making myself a hot breakfast of pumpkin Kodiak Cakes drizzled with maple syrup and sprinkled with a cranberry and pepita mixture. Mmm I love adding pumpkin to pancake batter. These babies were thin and moist.Yes, it is truly Fall when I start eating all things pumpkin. ~.^
Sunday started off before the sign rose on beautiful Blue Mountain. My dad and I finally got in our traditional Sunday walk with Tammy (our 15 year old black lab)!
