Sundays = the end of the weekend
Unfortunately, this Sunday was especially blah. The cloudy, overcast weather pretty much reflected how I felt.
Enter caffeine love.
In the interest of preserving my current mood, I’m going to stop reflecting on yesterday’s thoughts…just know I was kinda a Debbie Downer all day. I’m not sure why, as there was no true reason I should feel gloomy – I was just stuck in a funk.
Blueberry chobz + dried papaya spears + apple slices + melon = pretty fruity breakfast!
After my AM sugar loading, I headed to the gym. I wasn’t even remotely interested in working out, and I had to drag myself there in the hopes that I’d get pumped up once my foot hit the mat.
…yeah, that didn’t happen. I eked out 60 (weak ass resistance filled) minutes on the elliptical before heading home. Sure, I stretched a bit, but you can bet your ass I slipped all abs/arm exercises.
I was starving when I got home, and really wanted carbs…rather than inhale a loaf of bread (which I could have easily done in less than 5 minutes flat), I took a little timeout to really think about what I wanted.
As Bethenny says “check yourself before you wreck yourself.”
So this was my attempt to eat mindfully, and practice my favorite Housewife’s NY Times Best Selling tactic…while making sure I had what I wanted, without going crazy.
In the end, I decided to make some hummus. No recipe used, just chickpeas, EVOO, and salt to taste. It was a bit runny, but I ‘aint complainin’ (all the better to drink you with my dear).
I dipped 2 pieces of my favorite carb (Alvarado Street bread, obv) into the hummus soup. I DIE.
Carb check! Even though I wanted 10 more pieces of bread, I decided to take a little break and had a seitan cutlet to get some protein.
But in the end, I knew I was not going to be satisfied unless I had more bread.
Here was round #2
It was effing tasty too, but I felt like I was sloshing with chickpea soup after having TWO full bowls of hummus.
I was tired after all that food, so I took up residence on the couch. It was delightful to just curl up in a blanket and doze off. I watched the Prez speak at Notre Dame, finished my book, and read blogs for the better part of the afternoon.
I had some munchies, too.
Snacky day much?
I wanted to get in my greens for dinner, so I loaded a plate with the usual suspects (cukes, sprouts, tomatoes, carrots, and 1/2 an avocado on a bed of spinach).
You guessed it! The last of the hummus (note: I made this less than 4 hours before). Sick? Or super?
And yet, I STILL wasn’t satisfied! WTF?
This is when the day took a turn (for the worse). I’m not gonna lie, it got a little ugly.
My sweet tooth was calling, and I answered.
You get the point.
So, there you have it. Dirty laundry aired. Given the time of the month, it’s not really that surprising?
I mean, I’m not pleased, but I’m not going to let it ruin me, so Monday is a new day and hopefully my cravings will have died down (at least a little bit).
