Talk about karma. Sleeping in ‘til noon yesterday backfired hard core last night! Neither Kyle nor I could fall asleep, and as we watched the hours on the clock tick by, we finally decided enough was enough…so we got back up at 2 am and watched some tv. Sleep FAIL.
At 4 am I still wasn’t tired, but I forced myself back to bed…Kyle fell asleep (lucky ^%$) while I tossed and turned until 6 am. Fortunately, I had the presence of mind to set my alarm, so instead of sleeping ‘til noon again, I instead got a measly 3 hours of sleep. At least I will hopefully get back on a normal sleep schedule tonight, even though I feel like a jet-lagged zombie now.
A few more buckets of these and I was only suffering moderate eyelid drooping.
Breakfast sugar was entirely necessary. I think it’s safe to say I got in my daily cancer preventing antioxidants with the blueberry AND plum action
As I caught up on the blog pileup in my google reader, I started brainstorming for lunch. I went back to some old faves:
LightLife “turkey” + Sabra roasted red pepper hummus = sammie of my dreams
I pimped out my english muffin sammich with a few ripped up pieces of fake “turkey” along with spinach and hummus. Naturally, I had an apple on the side, and a NEW flavor of Kombucha. I still like Trilogy the best, but this was good…it didn’t really taste citrus-y to me, but no harm, no foul, still fizzy yum.
D to the E – LISH!!!
I was still hungry for some more crunch, so I made a rando little side salad consisting of raw corn OFF the cob, sliced carrots, and a GLOB ‘o roasted red pepper hummus. I wasn’t expecting anything too great, since I threw it together in approx 2.5 seconds, but effing fantabulous is what it was!
I know you can’t tell from the photo, but this ring was a FATTY! And I mean Kim Kardashian thick.
huge asses curvy ba-donk-a-donks…gym time! Not surprisingly, I was a bit sore from yesterday’s workout, so instead of running outdoors, I decided to go a little easy on myself. Plus, I wanted to watch tennis, so the elliptical won hands down. It wasn’t a great workout, but it was something (I’m working on getting rid of my all-or-none mentality). I stretched for days and peaced out.
FYI, anyone who was worried for my dwindling Alvarado Street bread stash, fear not, on the way home I found some!!! [insert huge sigh of relief here]
Post workout, I showered at lightning speed, and scarfed down on ANOTHER chobz (strawberry this time) and a pair of dried pineapple rings.
I had to get some food in me, but I didn’t wanna ruin my appetite, since I was going to dinner at the BEST restaurant ever (aka Cafe Blossom).
My Mom’s cousin Patti (who previously guest posted) and her hubz (Larry) were in town for a food show, and so in addition to taking me and Kyle to dinner, they even smuggled us a few treats from the show.
I couldn’t help it, I order seitan AGAIN. But it’s just SO good!!! Balsamic grilled seitan in the best sauce ever (roasted red pepper “cream”), with asparagus and baby Yukon gold potatoes. Heavenly.
Kyle got my runner-up order, which was the Southern Seitan Sandwich. The spiced seitan came on fluffy foccacia bread, with caramelized onions, avocado and chipotle aioli, as well as a heaping stack of cajun sweet potato fries.
Kyle was the lucky recipient of Larry’s leftover Fettucini Alfredo, so his lunch is already taken care of!
We walked back home, and I quickly threw my lunch together and hit the hay. Work tomorrow :/
