No post yesterday, I was busy at the orthodontist getting a new retainer. Unsurprisingly, losing my ability to snack without dealing with mouthgear or to freely sip diet coke all day put me in a sour mood. It didn’t help that my orthodontist accidentally sliced open the side of my lip, the effect of which is twofold – 1) I look like the Joker; 2) I’m not even wearing the retainers today because I can’t open my damn mouth!
Breakfast was restricted to something I could eat with a straw –
Leftover vanilla coffee, maple syrup, Silk Vanilla Almond Milk, and lots of ice.
I couldn’t figure out what to pack for lunch, so I ended up ordering a nice flat quesadilla.
The Taco Bell workers were surprisingly accommodating and agreed to add all of their veggies (lettuce, tomato, and onions) to my cheese quesadilla.
I could only manage to eat half of it though, and even that took me 45minutes!
By the time my second nutrition class was over I was hungry and cranky. In a not-so-nutritious move, I ended up carefully shoving chicken fingers and fries into my sore mouth.
My plan was to hit the gym between my afternoon class and Music, but a research presentation crisis took me to the library instead. Just as well, since my greasy platter of food left me wanting to throw up anyway.
But I surprised myself by making it to the gym after my night class. Normally my motivation wanes as the day goes on, but I knew I needed the mood-boosting effects. It helped that he let us out of class an hour early! I did 20 (difficult) minutes of jogging on the treadmill, followed by a quick cool down, for a total of 25minutes and 2.4miles.
When I finally got home at 9pm, I needed to spend some time in the kitchen, prepping for Adam’s lunch and tomorrow’s dinner. I also had a few school loose ends to tie up for tomorrow, pushing this post even later. As soon as I realized my early bedtime was shot, I begged Adam to take me to 7-11 for a diet pop, where this happened –
Cherry/Coke slushies make me giddy!
Now as soon as I hit publish I can’t wait to get showered and get in bed!
What is your slushie flavor (combo) of choice?
