Wacked out day

Today was more bizarre than George Whipple’s eyebrows.

george's eyebrows

It started off normal – java with foam, you know…

Then I had an apple.  Still fairly normal, right?

Well, suddenly I felt beyond sick.  Like, go to the bathroom and wait for the puke to come.  Wha?! 

I felt okay-ish if I remained supine (that’s lying flat for you non-medical peeps), but every time I tried to sit up, I felt like I was gonna heave-ho.  No bueno.  I’ve never felt so bizarre…like head-achy, dizzy, with some weakness, too.  Even though I’m a nurse, I really tend to dismiss any symptoms I have.  Things have to be pretty bad for me NOT to ignore them.  So, I checked my pulses, and diagnosed myself with dehydration.  Prescription: water and The View.  Done and done. 

I felt better a few hours later, so I had some comfort food that I knew my tumtum could handle.

Yeah boi!

By the way, I loved hearing everyone’s comments about packing lunches yesterday.  Apparently, most of us are planners when it comes to food.  Economically, it just makes good $en$e.  Plus, then we know exactly what’s in our food.

Look familiar?  Yesterday’s lunch was so good, I wanted the exact same thing today.  Tofu salad on one slice, roasted red pepper hummus on the other.  Luuurve.

The day got weird again when my appetite went haywire after lunch.  I kept eating and eating and eating…and yet, I never felt satisfied.

I snacked on the above (and then some).  Blah.  I had sooooo many random errands to do, so I lost track of all my snackage.  I was fairly productive though (as in $400+ dollars productive)…shhh…don’t tell Kyle.  I made a substantial dent in the wallet, but some of it (ok, a LOT of it) was retail therapy.  Shopping counts as cardio, right? 

Economic woes aside, things were looking good again once I found out I won Dave’s Killer Bread in the HangryPants giveaway.  I have been whining about my inability to find this product on the East Coast for quite a while now…so I did a few summersaults upon discovering I won the giveaway :D

Despite being ridiculously sore from Jillian’s workout yesterday, I still managed to get to the gym.  Before I left, I had a few handfuls of dried mango for a sugary kick in the pants.

That’s about half of what I had, but it got 6 miles out of me so ‘nuf said.

I was dreaming of this during the entire workout.  So refreshing.  Gingerberry is my latest #1 flavor.  I must have been really thirsty or something because I pounded it in under 30 seconds (carbonation and all).  Come to think of it, I drank an extraordinary amount of water at the gym, too.  What a weird day.

Dinnerface :D  In the bowl: quinoa, raw carrots, raw corn, and a spoonful of hummus love.  On the side: raw sprouted chickpeas, and raw broccoli slaw.

Some ingredients jumped ship.

All together now.

Who doesn’t like a good zoom $hot?

I had extra corn off the cob on the side.  I love the way raw corn crunches.  These babies were particularly sweet and hit the spot.

I did laundry while enjoying the sassy Hot-lanta housewives.  They crazy!

For dessert, I made a green creation.  A bit atypical for dessert maybe, but the amount of avocado makes up for it, right?

IMG_3591

I steamed some broccoli and cauliflower, then added half an avocado, and drizzled some San-J sweet & tangy sauce on the top.

Awwww sh!!!t – you all MUST try this.  Now.  I stirred it all together to make a brocc-a-mole.

Guess who comes home tomorrow?!?!

    OMG–those eyebrows look like caterpillars!

    I am SUPER impressed that you worked out after starting off feeling so sick–you rock! I would have dismissed it as a sick day…anything for a day off, right?! Well, obviously not for you :-)

    I am jealous that you won something in a blog give away! Congrats! I seem to enter a ton of those, but have never won… :-( Ah, well, you can’t miss what you don’t have, right?

    Did you sprout your own chickpeas?! I have had success sprouting lentils, but anytime I try with anything larger than an lentil, I fail. What gives?! Any tips or suggestions?

    Congrats on winning the giveaway! I’ve been dyinggg to try that dave’s killa bread! Looks fab!

    And your red pep hummus/tofu salad looks FAB, once again. I’m buying that red pep hummus today, so that I can enjoy all it’s flavorful goodness before I probs get stuck with the original flavor at school. Nothin’ wrong with original, but I love me some extra flav!

    Sorry about the bizarre day, but looks like it ended well! Mmmmm, sauce + avo + broc DOES sound amazing.
