I’m not a nap kind of person but boy do I sure ever feel like I could use one right about now. I’ve been up late and up early many days in a row now just trying to get things done. Sleep has been bottom of the priority list unfortunately. I’m feeling feeling slightly caught up now, even though I still have a million other things to do, but they are a little further away so I’m going to breathe today. Ahhh.
It felt like Friday all day yesterday. Same deal on Tuesday. It’s kind of felt like Friday every day this week. My days have been so thrown off for some reason. I can’t believe tomorrow actually will be Friday now. I’ll bet it’s going to feel like Monday just to really mess with me.
I had some overnight oats for the first time in AGES. Sadly they weren’t that impressive.
I soaked 1/3 cup of oats and cinnamon in water overnight, then in the morning I stirred a couple spoonfuls of plain and a spoonful of berry yogurt, some frozen banana slices and topped it with a spoonful of almond butter.
I stirred the AB mostly into the oats and it got slightly lost. Bad idea I guess? Maybe I should have added something else for sweetness? More yogurt? What should I have done differently? If this is a breakfast you regularly chow down on:
How do you guys do your overnight oats?
I need some more ideas!
Lunchie was a bunch of random veggies, cottage cheese, deli turkey and a couple pieces of insanely fresh garlic buns. Only one slice made it onto the plate, as did only half of the cottage cheese, and probably half of the veggies. The other half of everything was in my stomach way before I sat down.
I went to get my health card picture taken since that’s apparently nearly expired but the health card office was packed. The funny little security man at the door informed us that the BEST time to go is 8:30-10:00 in the morning. Ugh. So I was back today and got it done bright and early instead. But that’s getting ahead so let’s just get to dinner.
After seeing all of Erin’s pasta-free pasta dishes I felt inspired and excited for a way to use up some of my leftover Snobby Joes! Who needs to pile em onto bread when you could pile em onto broccoli.
Piled Mile High and paired with tea because I was cold. Yet it was actually pretty WARM out on Wednesday. I know, shocking right? Winter finally coming to an end? Finally? Maybe?
Um no. I’m looking out the window right now and there is freaking SNOW. It is snowing. Snow! Snow? Stupid snow. The warm weather was such a tease… although apparently it’s supposed to come back soon so this better be the last bit of snow I see, otherwise I’ll have a giant bone to pick with Mother Nature and it won’t be pretty, I can tell you that.
It may look like I had some half decent meals yesterday but my eating was actually pretty haywire. I haven’t been so great on the “intuitive eating” front lately. Snacking is getting the better of me. School stress reels me in yet again. Boo hoo.
I also suspect I might be developing a slight intolerance to coffee?! I don’t know for sure but for the past few days, every time I have a cup of coffee I have this weird feeling in my stomach. I don’t even know how to describe it, nor do I know for sure if it’s caused by the coffee but the coffee seems to be the only consistent factor that has accompanied these weird pain things or whatever they are. I haven’t had any coffee at all today and I have had no weird pains. I might hold off on it for a few more days and see if they stay away. I also may not hold off though because I really like coffee. Sigh.
I don’t have today’s pics uploaded yet so I’ll have them up in a later post. Plus I’m not done eating for the day yet ;) Dinner is still to come! I’m feeling an offbeat dinner tonight. Maybe something sweet!
I’m getting a headache though. I really do think I need that nap.
Wake me up when the snow goes away.
