I’m in quite a funk. PMS? The sight of my stomach fat? Other life issues? Who the fuck knows. Bottom line is I thought my day was great, but realized the beginning and end have been full of moodiness, and a tiff with the man. Grrrr.
Do you watch Sex and the City? An episode is on now with so many truths about relationships and dating. I love this show, but I’ve found that the later seasons are so true to life it is almost too depressing to watch.
The oats were a wee bit different–currants instead of raisins. I also forgot to mention that I used up the Better’n’PB, and am back with Maranatha crunchy PB. I missed the chunky PB and the roasted flavor of normal PB; B’n’PB was also a little to sweet for me. Oh well, I gave it a try!
My dad had a car issue come up, he was booked all day but needed to leave town the next day, so I took his car into the shop late in the morning. I brought my lunch along with me, but forgot a fork 😦 First I had these apples and strawberries:
After awhile we figured out the repair would be another hour or so at least, and when the shop manager suggested I visit Nosh for lunch I took the advice.
Nosh is a tiny little sandwich shop in close-in SE Portland. They had a lunch deal with 1/2 a sandwich, soup, and a cookie. I’ll take it! I opted for the veggie sandwich on marble rye (cucumber, shredded carrot, tomato, lettuce, hummus) with the tomato ravioli soup. It came with a really yummy little chocolate chocolate chip cookie. This was perfect lunch, but in reality I ate it all and was a little full.
The afternoon flew by, but not too fast for me to enjoy a Kashi TLC crunchy granola bar.
Can you guess what we did for dinner?
I think I need to exclude the beans, as they are refried, and most likely contain lard 😦 I forgot to ask again about the beans and rice. Bad me!
I was just a little hungry later on, and wanted to try out my new find at the grocery store–a half gallon of refrigerated Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla!! Yee-haw! The carton looked different, and at first glance I thought it was the same as the normal aseptic carton, but not quite. The refrigerated version has more calcium, vit. A, and vit. D, and a creamier texture, I think. I like it!
Can’t believe we’re halfway through the week already. It is almost not a good thing with what I need to do before our office move Saturday. 😐
Same oats this morning as yesterday…
After much sorting, recycling, and reorganizing of my desk, lunch rolled around. I ate the salad that I didn’t have for lunch yesterday–leftover burrito, extra verde sauce, avocado, jalapeno, Romaine. Some carrots and cherries on the side for shits and giggles.
I didn’t feel that productive this afternoon 😦 I needed to do case work but just wanted to continue organizing and sorting. I’ll have to bust some ass tomorrow to get my work done.
This nanner gave me a little fuel mid-afternoon.
I was super hungry before dinner, so I snacked on most of these while playing with Lily.
I forgot to plan out my side dishes for dinner fully, so I ended up having brown rice made with VegeBase broth, and added in some sauteed pepper, onion, carrot, and mushroom. Pretty good, but needed more seasoning. I had that with a portabella burger that I accidentally overseasoned, so they went well together 🙂 Beforehand I attempted to make a garlic bread snack out of a leftover burger bun, but I took my eye off of it at the last minute and they got a little brown. Still tasty 😉
I also went for a cup o’ that fabu almond milk with dinner. Lovin it!
After a good leg and stair mill sweat session, I needed more fuel. Granola, strawberries, and almond milk came to the rescue.
The hunger was not satiated afterward, so I ate the rest of my Genisoy Deep Sea Salt Crisps. Then I realized I’m thirsty and I have allergies, and those factors are driving my hunger.
I’m off to bed. I got a lot of sleep last night, but had a sleep hangover this morning from getting too much. Crazy how that works out.
