I think a quick update is in order before heading off to dreamland. I got some good textbook reading/note-taking done tonight so I’m feeling a little more accomplished right now than I had been feeling for the past few days. Yay for semi-productiveness.
Since I didn’t finish yesterday like I said I was going to, here’s a quick recap of the rest of the day:
Lunch was a random salad. Well I don’t even know if you could call it a salad. More like a bowl of random stuff thrown together. Salad-like because it included veggies, but not quite at full-on salad level. Then again, I guess that depends how exactly you define “salad”… whatever. Here was the bowl:
Spinach, red pepper, mushrooms, queso sauce, baba ghanoush, cottage cheese and a bitten sun dried tomato.
For some reason some part of this meal really messed up my stomach though. It was really bloated and paining. Which is especially weird because I’ve had this exact meal several times before with no issues. Hm.
Anyway, then I went shopping and had my mind set on getting some frozen yogurt. So I went to Laura Secord and ordered some chocolate brownie yogurt, kiddie size, in a cup.
This was NOT kiddie sized. I swear there was practically two scoops in there. I ate it all anyway. The worst part though was the fact that it wasn’t nearly as good as I was hoping. I should have just splurged and got some kind of actual chocolate ice cream or something. It might have been double the calories but I would have enjoyed it at least 5x more. And wouldn’t have gone home rummaging for more sweets since my sweet tooth was triggered but not satisfied. Hmmph.
AND that brings us to TODAY
After a quick treadmill run and some weighted squats/lunges I made an equally quick bowl of oats before running off to class.
Oats, pumpkin, banana, cinnamon, vanilla protein powder, flax. Pretty good. NOT filling enough. I was pretty starving when I got home. I thought this would hold me over longer. I even paired it with a crunchy apple. Guess that didn’t help anything either.
AND this great bowl of vanilla yogurt mixed with pumpkin, vanilla soy milk and 1/2 a Weetabix biscuit, heated, then topped with crushed vanilla shreddies. A little bit sweeter and this would have tasted exactly like warm pumpkin pie. I’ll have to keep tweaking this combo.
More class, blah blah blah, then dinner.
Chicken fajitas. Mm mmmm. I haven’t had these in ages. Chicken and salsa goodness with a whole big chunk of GOAT CHEESE wrapped in a white flour tortilla. Can’t be perfect all the time… plus, that’s just what came in the ‘fajita kit’.
I had another half of one as well that my brother didn’t want to finish, plus many pinches of shredded cheddar cheese and many pieces of chicken straight from the pan. I always have to pick at foods from their pots, containers etc as I put prepare them or put them on my plate, I can never just eat what I portion out for my actual meal. Never.
Okay bed time. Okay no, brief blog reading then bed time. Yeah, I sacrifice sleep for blog catch-up. The important things in life.
PS. I HATE coughs. If you have some kind of miracle cough cure up your sleeve, PLEASE let me know about it.
