I’m not falling back behind yet! HA!
This morning was..Tuesday. Right? Yes. It was Tuesday. I woke up with my arm asleep above my head. This is a new habit for me and I don’t understand why I do it. I never used to have dead arms waking up! It’s very uncomfortable. -_-
For breakfast I went with Weetabix, plum, toasted cashews, and dried cranberries. Man I love how easy cereal is and how satisfied it makes me. The babies absolutely love it too. They lick my bowl clean.
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!
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.
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.
I feel pretty pleased with myself today. I took photos of absolutely everything I ate. Lately I’ve been letting nibbles here and there slide and it’s not helping me stay honest with myself.
This morning I had a breakfast of a Starbucks Greek yogurt with honey parfait, mixed with canned pumpkin, pumpkin spice, a spoonful of drippy almond butter, and dried cranberries.
Monday started with another Greek honey yogurt parfait mixed with banana and a spoonful of almond butter. I also tried sipping some Evolution Pineapple Coconut Water to get my thirst going. I put most of it back in the fridge, though, it did make me want water!
I’m trying really really hard this week to increase my fluid intake. I haven’t been getting enough for a few months now and it’s unacceptable!
Wow..I just sat down to finally write this post…and I can’t remember yesterday. I mean, clearly, I can see the food..but I can’t remember much else. =( Feelings, thoughts, ect…
So…guess you guys just get food.
Breakfast was Weetabix, fresh strawberries, dried cranberries, and almonds.
Today was a packed full day.
It started with me not being able to stay asleep. I awoke at 1am…I awoke at 3am..I then awoke again at 5am and gave up. -_- Sleep did not want me. I can’t even blame the babies for it this time.
For breakfast I made a green smoothie with Evolution Apple Carrot Juice, fresh spinach, low fat vanilla yogurt, frozen mango chunks, and fish oil. To be honest….this one tasted…fishy. Yeah. I slurped it down but I didn’t exactly enjoy it.
Since I ate so damn early…of course it wasn’t going to hold me over until lunch time. So around 7am I had a heated up roll with some huckleberry jam smashed inside. Delicious!
Around 9:30am I ate some orange slices while I worked on some homework in the cafeteria.
Man, there are days when I am so excited to write a post for you guys, and then there are days that I feel so energy drained that I look at it with dread. =( I’m having one of those days. And it’s not because I don’t have exciting food to share…it’s seriously because I want to be an old lady and crawl into bed before 9am.
Let’s see, this morning I was up way early again. Maybe 7am when I didn’t have class until 10am. I kind of enjoying getting to take my time with breakfast and slowly wake myself up. I should probably work on being more productive with my time though. Time is precious these days.
Anyway I made a delicious green smoothie for breakfast containing Evolution Apple Carrot juice, fresh spinach, frozen mixed berries, frozen banana, and fish oil. I then worked on the computer for a bit before I realized I was still hungry. I really wanted some toasted carby goodness. So I had a slice of toast with peanut butter and fig butter.
I’m dying to do some reading in bed so I’m going to make this quick!
