leftovers to the rescue
today wasn’t the best day of eating, but it also wasn’t the worst. i really have no opinion on it, i’m still so tired from my busy weekend that i’m just glad i got in some real meals and veggies between the not so good stuff.
i wanted so badly to sleep through the night, but thanks again to the drinkies, i woke up around 1AM and tossed and turned for a while before giving up and going online. i’m thankful for the solid 5 hours of sleep, but it wasn’t enough, and i only managed a short nap today. my body is just exhausted (partly due to the start of my period- is that tmi, i can never decide if it is) but my mind does not want to shut off. i haven’t done anything productive in a while, i haven’t been working out, my apartment is a complete mess, ahh, i just can’t let myself sleep!
anyways, i skipped breakfast and had a nice early lunch. i ate more leftovers from the salad bar, and some tuna salad from tom’s lunch. i am SO glad i have these veggies. my body is just screaming for all the vitamins it can get.
after i got my veggies in, i opened up my last bag of potato chips. i’ve been thinking of these damn chips all day for the past two days and i decided it was pointless to deprive myself. tom doesn’t like them, so they’ll have to be eaten by me sometime- why not when i’m really craving them, right? anyway, i plated them and savored each one.
we all know how those time of the month cravings work. i needed to get my sweet fix in as well, so i enjoyed one nonpareil. whoever thought to put sprinkles on chocolate is a genius.
i ate dinner late- around 9PM, so there was a little more snacking before then. i remember some pita chips but there’s not much left to eat at home, so it was nothing crazy.
i had a coffee and a graham cracker for a little “pep” before making dinner.
we had breakfast for dinner…i always use “brinner” as an easy-out meal- usually when i’m running low on groceries or i’m too tired to cook anything else- but tom always gets so excited about it. i think that’s cute. he had bacon, pancakes and eggs. i had a 1 egg, 1 egg white omelet with more salad bar veggies!!! (spinach, zucchini, mushroom) and a pear w/ pb and granola- i wanted to end the day with a healthy meal, and i was very happy with this one.
well, that’s that. i think i’m headed in the right direction (getting back to normal)…and hopefully i’ll do better tomorrow. my goal for tomorrow is to drink crazy amounts of water. there’s been way to much coffee and alcohol and not enough water these past few days and i know that’s contributing to the fatigue as well. lots of water, lots of sleep…it’s amazing what just those two things can do!
