I only know because I’m watching The Biggest Loser. But when trying to watch more than worry about the stuff I “should” be doing for school or the things on my mind got to me, I did what any normal person would do: decided to blog instead. I realized I didn’t really share what my day looked like even though I posted about this morning’s EDAW event.
My pre-breakfast breakfast (fail, I know) was oats, peanut butter, a banana, and milk.
I picked at a plate of fruit and hash browns and bacon at the breakfast mostly because it was there.
Then I realized what was up and I focused on the people around instead. Like Sarah!
And when I got home I was still hungry. I kept picking though — fail until I had this snack of rice cakes and ricotta cheese (really boring looking, but good!).
I packed a yummy sandwich (grain fed turkey on ezekiel bread with sprouts and light mayo) and carrots for lunch and an apple (which didn’t get eaten).
After a few hours at the library, mostly daydreaming, I got gas and picked up some pitas/greek yogurt and such from the grocery store.
Then I came home and had dinner. More picking (after a daylong spree of it 😦 ) while I got it ready–at grapes, croutons, dried fruit, you name it. A couple of times I told myself to stop, decide if I really wanted it, and own the decision. It worked and I’m trying to focus on the fact that I didn’t let myself get sucked into a binge. Dinner was leftover pita pizza with goat cheese and spinach in place of the parmesan from the other night.
I burnt the pita, but whatever.
Bootcamp was fun tonight but I am ready to do the workouts with them — mentally. More frustration. I definitely need to get my thoughts sorted out here because I keep realizing more and more things…note to self: make a post ASAP.
My mind is racing a bit. I’ve got lots to think about (and I think you’re in for a big share in the coming weeks) so I’m calling tonight a write-off for homework and just going with it. I have foam rolling and brushing my teeth on my uber ambitious 😉 to do list. Stress is a choice so I’m going to try to be more positive.
Tomorrow I have a swim, physio appointment, work at the Gazette, class, another bootcamp class, and hopefully some productivity, plus a dinner date with a friend from lululemon on the agenda. Should be a good (busy) day!
Do you ever have a day where you feel like you’re on the verge?
Do you pick at food when you’re stressed?
What are you up to tonight?
