Hello and good morning!
Hopefully everyone is having a positive day. Everything is looking beautiful in my neck of the woods. Its still feeling like summer, which is weird considering where I live. Fall usually comes early, but not this year!
It’s that time of week again, time to get the party started.
Today started out the same way it usually does.
Spin class was fantastic, I love the energy that the class creates, even if it is at 5:30 in the morning. Followed by a trip to Starbucks for an Americano, and a cup of green juice when I got home.
Breakfast was eaten after my juice was consumed.
Breakfast: 7:30 – A bowl of 2% greek yogurt, with 1/2 a sliced banana, blueberries, cinnamon, stevia, homemade granola (recipe soon!), topped with creamy almond butter.
Two percent is where its at. No more non fat, please.
I decided to make a big to do list today, since I have tons of things to get done, but without having an actual list I for some reason can never get myself to do these things. Weird. I guess I’m just a list lover.
Doing chores make time go by so. slowly. I got started on a few things, got super bored, decided to read instead. And then it was lunch time.
I haven’t been feeling too good recently, migraines are still happening, fatigue, and sore throat. Pretty much my daily life for the past 2 months. I’m hoping its just from stress, anxiety, and lack of sleep combination.
Today my appetite also decided to pull a disappearing act on me, and I was just craving comfort foods.
Lunch: 11:30 – Eggy Oat bran with the other 1/2 banana, 2 tablespoons pumpkin, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1/2 cup egg whites, cinnamon, stevia, and peanut flour paste.
With that being said, breakfast for lunch it was. I love breakfast for lunch. Or dinner. Its a winner.
Well, that was a lame rhyme.
On the side I made sure to get some greens in, with a large (un-pictured) salad, filled with spinach, romaine, cucumbers, red peppers, strawberries and a little lemon vinaigrette.
Snack: 3 – Pumpkin Spice Bar and Coconut Butter
My afternoon snack included a little pumpkin bar recipe that turned out into a success, so I will be sharing that with you all either tomorrow or Friday. Can’t decide yet;) Get excited, because these babies are good!
I also made sure to get my coconut butter loving on, and had a side of it to dip the bar into. I seem to really like coconut butter in shot glasses, no idea why.
Now if the Fall weather would come on by, this snack would have felt perfect for the season!
Side note: I honestly don’t understand how people can go all day without snacking and just eat 3 meals, I swear if I don’t eat every few hours I feel like I am dying. Must just be my low blood sugar levels.
Snacking is my jam.
I was at a loss on what to make for dinner. I wanted something fast and easy. Doing chores exhausts me, more than working on my feet for 7 hours does. I don’t know what it is about cleaning/laundry that leaves me wiped out. Anyone else get this too?
Dinner: 5 -
Dinner tonight was a good one…
I just defrosted a brown rice tortilla, topped it with tomato paste, nutritional yeast, spinach, and goat cheese. With an egg omelette on the side. It was slightly ruined, because I am horrible at flipping those darned omelettes, so that went unpictured. You should thank me for that.
Today was actually a bit of a struggle food wise, for instance, I ate carbs for all my meals which I rarely will do. I did it, but I was mentally exhausted by the end of the day after fighting back and forth with my mind. My body won in the end.
And I did want to stick with the theme of having breakfast for all my meals, just because I thought that would be a challenge for me. A silly one, yes. But, still a challenge nonetheless. Since, my ED says “I can’t” have breakfast for each meal, and “must” eat vegetables or fruit at each meal/snack. I wanted to disobey that voice. Next time will actually be breakfast all day:)
You better bet the night will end with another snack, yes I always end the day with a night snack. Most likely a protein muffin tonight.
With toppings of course. I can’t eat things plain.
It just doesn’t seem right to leave something lonely without any delicious toppings.
Do you like eating breakfast type meals for lunch or dinner?
What’s your favourite salad combination?
Have a fantastic Wednesday!
