You guys are all awesome. All of your upbeat and positive comments made me feel much better. THANK YOU.
The past couple days have been much improved over the weekend. Probably because I have been working and busy and enjoying myself, whereas I had several days of no work and no real plans over the weekend, and that lack of structure combined with boredom and a bad mood just brought me right down.
But I’m feeling much better now and I’ve been resting up a bit compared to the ridiculous lack of sleep last week so I anticipate much better days this week.
Today I worked again at the bakery. Another fairly long but enjoyable day. I allowed myself to have a few tastes of things today. I don’t do that every day but there were several things I was cutting up that I wanted to try so I had teeny bites from the extras that got cut off the edges. Those tastes included almond florentine, mango mousse cake and chocolate mousse cake. They were all amazing but especially the florentine bars. I had never tried something like that before but the bites were totally worth it. Too bad I can’t get pictures of all of the lovely desserts in there. Maybe someday!
I should get back into some kind of chronological order with my food though, so let’s start off with my lovely rainbow breakfast. A blueberry waffle with 2 tsp white chocolate pb and frozen banana slices on top, surrounded by lots of gorgeous fruit.
My lunch isn’t nearly as attractive. Actually, it’s straight up ugly. But I was in a rush, no time to make it look pretty. From left to right: half of a pita stuffed with hummus, a hard boiled egg white and some spinach; a nectarine; chopped up carrots with balsamic vinaigrette. I didn’t think this would fill me though so I also packed a container of mixed nuts, dried fruit and cereal. I ate it all. It filled me up a little too full but that’s okay considering I needed the fuel to get through the rest of the afternoon of bakery running around.
When I got home from work I munched on some random leftovers in the fridge. Then I made myself up a nice big salad with sweet onion dressing, feta, and… Mr. Noodles. Yeah, not the healthiest thing ever, but they were leftover in my fridge and after having a few bites I couldn’t put them down. So I dumped them in my salad. I love these things. And I loved this salad – especially eaten in the sun in the backyard.
This was followed up by a few bites of ice cream and a honeydew melon binge… and then a bowl of vanilla yogurt with mango and cherry Jello… another weird but tasty combo. I probably didn’t need the Jello on there since it kind of got lost with the taste of the yogurt, but oh well.
I did some intense sprint intervals on the treadmill, and now I am watching Fool’s Gold with my mom. Then I’ll be off for an early bed time to catch up on sleep and wake up early for another bakery work day tomorrow. Night!
