Fond memories of sitting on these chairs drinking alcohol and eating gluten
Breakfast: No coffee, no yogurt, no cereal. I am seriously addicted to cereal. I eat it as a snack throughout the day - Life and Kashi's Go Lean are my favorites. Yogurt is my only dairy besides ice cream. My morning cup of yogurt is routine. Almost essential. And then there is coffee. Remarkably, coffee is less important to me than the other two, but I still truly miss it.
I forgot to buy lemons for my water and some green tea. I found another website, but it just kind of makes me feel like I'm part of a weird club.
Lunch: Kept busy teaching the kids how to clean a kitchen floor so I didn't eat until late. Harry cried (it was an amazing dramatic achievement) the entire time he was vacuuming the floor. You should have heard him when I asked him to continue into the back hall! Made a salad with tomatoes, red peppers and romaine lettuce. Poured this AMAZING stuff I found at Costco - Fresh Accents by Aromatica Organics - over the top. It is a "...versatile blend of nuts seeds, dried cranberries, vegetables, garlic and onions." I also snacked on soy nuts which I am finding a bit addicting. I also had a corn tortilla with Hot Chipotle hummus. After this I was definitely looking for sugar. Ate some grapes and actually feel like the craving has passed.
Dinner: Worked out twice today. This wasn't intentional. I use a trainer weekly and thought our appointment was at noon, but it wasn't till 1:00 PM. I couldn't find a sitter and asked if I could do a playdate swap with my friend, Kristin, who has kids the same age. Since I had coverage for the kids I decided to just stay and do some cardio. My trainer switched our time to 4:00 PM and I did some strength training with her for an hour then. Right in the middle of my session, I got a searing headache. First side effect, I suppose. I was pretty hungry when I got home. I made myself another salad, but added black beans on top. I also had some soy nuts and tried my bread with almond butter. It didn't taste like cardboard! After that "meal" I have to admit I was craving sugar and coffee. I decided a shower would distract me, which it did.
Headache got really bad about an hour ago. Took some ibuprofen - it probably has sugar in it - but I needed some relief. Headache isn't gone, but much better. I'm exhausted and heading to bed early.
Overall - not too bad. I definitely need to try a larger variety of foods tomorrow.
So? Who's joining me????
