Chocolate Day

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.

Stress Melt Down

Well guys..I’ve recently had another melt down so I’m finding it hard to find time to blog. I can hardly remember most days now, let alone what I eat. =( Let me try to catch up and spark my memory

Friday

Friday morning started off bright and early with a yogurt bowl of Chobani Mango 2% Greek yogurt, a cut up plum, raw oats, and almonds and dried cranberries. Not gonna lie…just looking at this makes me want to eat it right now!

I then headed to class to watch half my classmates present their supplement company research projects. Boring. -_-

Man was I tired when I awoke Tuesday morning. My body hurt, but in a good way!

I didn’t have class until 10am (one class not meeting), but I was still up before 7am because I had stuff to do! First off: breakfast. Exact same breakfast as Monday but this time shoved in the almond butter jar so I could painfully scrap all of the dry almond butter off! Success.

Then it was off to the gym for me for a 30 minute run! It felt so great to be running again, especially with my new running mix. I’m becoming less of a fan of early morning workouts though (besides swimming) because I just could not cool off enough after it. My hair was pretty darn curly today. -_-

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.

Letting Go of Dreams

Hi hi everyone. I gotta admit, yesterday turned into a rough day. Do I say this too often?

Started out great with a bowl of Chobani Blackberry Greek yogurt with raw oats, chia seeds, drippy almond butter, banana, and dried cranberries. It was nice to sit down at the table, read the news (lawl I call Facebook the news ~.^), and eat my breakfast.

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.

Photographic

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.

Raspberry Lemon Goodness

And now we are finally on the correct day! =D Okay I may have stopped working on my big end stage renal disease case study to do this…but ya gotta have priorities right?!

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.

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!
