Happy Wednesday everyone! In explanation of my title, this day is already off to a rough start. I woke up feeling still tired, this head cold is NOT going away, I have a headache (unknown reason) and sore shoulders (stress, probably?), and my finger infection is DEFINITELY coming back, but on a different finger. I thought the antibiotic was supposed to get rid of that! I'm going to try and still make the best of this day, so I'm going to shower (after blogging), go to the gym to try and get some feel-good endorphins going, then come home and change into a cute outfit to feel as good as possible. I really try to be happy all the time on this blog, and I don't feel THAT miserable. Really, I think it's all a state of mind and I really do think you can STRONGLY affect how you're feeling at any given time, even if circumstances aren't in your favor.
*Smiles and decides to have a good day, anyway!*
I had a long day of teaching yesterday, so I wasn't able to get a post up. But here's what I've been enjoying yesterday and today (so far).
I'm sorry that these are blurry. The lighting in my new house really sucks! But it's oat bran with:
-two kinds of PB
With coffee and a glass of FRS low calorie energy to drink.
(That sectional divider idea is 'stolen' from the lovely and amazing Gliding Calm!)
Sandwich on this bread:
With this hummus (NOT my favorite; it's kind of dry and unflavorful and I won't buy it again!):
With this turkey breast. It was a little expensive, but after seeing Food Inc, I'd really like to start buying more meat from humane, sustainable sources, both for my health and for the sake of the farmers that are still trying to be ethical and good stewards of the earth.
And the sandwich had spinach and sauteed veggies. With cherry tomatoes on the side.
I had stopped for a few groceries on my way home before lunch:
Yesterday night, I bought some snacks to have before I started teaching for 5 hours over a dinner hour (3:30-8:30).
I crave red and orange bell peppers all the time. I REALLY wish they weren't so expensive. For example, at $3.99/lb, this ONE was over $2! But they are SOOOOO delicious!
Ditto. Why can't my favorite foods be cheaper?!
These are (in my humble opinion) THE BEST crackers out there. I love these to a ridiculous amount! I can eat way too many servings at one time, and I had quite a few crackers both at 3pm and after teaching on my way home at 9pm!
I drank this while teaching.
And ate this quickly during a short break around 6pm. It was pretty gross. Definitely had a pretein-y taste and just wasn't very appealing. Meh--not so great.
But breakfast yesterday was fantastic!
Oat bran with a peach, a fig, cottage cheese, pumpkin and 2 kinds of nut butters. :)
And lastly, two random snacks:
Which are both self-explanatory.
AnAppleADay is giving away Nutridel Cookies! These look so yummy and healthy!
Have a great hump day!
