Despite it being a Thursday, today felt like the longest day of the week yet. I’m not sure why I’m in a mini funk – I’m getting plenty of sleep, my foot is feeling stronger each week, and I’m taking care of what I need to do. Perhaps its hormones? A summer slump? Stress?
I had to be at work earlier than usual for more of orientation. In honor of that, and the fact that it was becoming dangerous, I celebrated Thursday morning with Cherry Hot Cereal in a Chocolate PB jar! This was intense. I didn’t realize how sweet it would be and was glad to balance it out with an egg white. The warm chocolate PB was heavenly though!!
It was a long morning of sessions and I finally ate lunch at my desk around 1pm. I had another monster salad with:
- spinach and romaine
- 2 carrots
- cucumber and broccoli
- bell pepper
- 1/4c black beans, ~1T fat free feta
- same spices as the rest of the week
- 6 or 7 blue corn chips
I spent the rest of the afternoon in meetings and then rushed home to tackle my laundry. Fun times. Somewhere in there I finished up the last 1/4c of yogurt in the container and added a few frozen berries and a drop of PB.
My grazing kicked in and after a few more chips, I decided to eat dinner and end the nibbling. I had the leftover half serving of pasta and roasted veggies that I topped with some tomato sauce and 1T parm. And a slice of garlic toast.
There was more grazing – I can’t figure out why, perhaps I needed more protein? I had a few more chips, some eggplant and pepper dip, and a few pieces of baked tofu.
I dragged myself out of my apartment to meet a friend for a bit and ended up taking a 3.5 mile walk which felt glorious. It brought my mileage to 7.3 miles for the day and I only have a slight ache in my foot! On the way, I got a kids’ sized Rita’s Italian Ice – half vanilla, half mango-peach. Summer is officially here now that I’ve had my Rita’s!
Time to shower and get to bed soon. I’m hoping this funk goes away – I have a ton to look forward to in the next 10 days and don’t want to be mentally absent from it for even a moment! I’m hoping my brain will get itself organized soon
