Last night’s sleep session was a disaster. Usually my sleep issues are related to falling asleep but lately if I get woken up I can’t fall back to sleep either. The dog woke us up in the middle of the night and it took me at least another hour of tossing and turning to get back to rest. The husband brought home some sort of bug from the hospital and my throat was killing me.
I overslept today and the morning was rushed but I managed to do what I needed to do, mostly. I was heading to the gym after 9 am so sticking with my monthly goal I ate a small breakfast before I left. A few sips of strawberry Powerade Zero,
and a half of a Vanilla Almond Luna Bar.
I didn’t have much time at the gym but something was better than nothing. 20 minutes on the elliptical at random level 7.
After a quick walk home and an even quicker shower I made a Lemon Cookie Smoothie for breakfast.
The last time I made it was apparently a dark and stormy night and I wanted a chance to get some
better less awful photographs for the recipe page.
It probably wasn’t my best use of time though; I made it halfway through my smoothie before I had to throw it away and rush out the door. I didn’t have time to pack lunch and having half a smoothie digesting in my stomach just made my hunger stronger all afternoon.
I got out of clinic a bit early and when I spotted a Manhattan Bagel on the drive home it felt like an oasis in the desert.
I was eating the chips that came with my meal before I was even out of the parking lot.
But chips only seemed to anger the beast (aka my stomach) and I ended up eating my bagel on the ride home!
Eating while driving is sort of nice because instead of dreading red lights you can use them to shove food into your face. And my bagel was quite enjoyable; I got a veggie sandwich on a rye bagel.
Red onion, lettuce, tomato, banana peppers, veggie cream cheese, and a little bit of chipotle mayo. I thought the veggies were pretty weak but the bagel was super chewy and good.
I had my 2nd to last shift at work this evening and then I came home to an easy salad dinner.
I needed a vehicle for a veggie, a fruit, and this amazing looking cheese, and salad fit the bill.
This Cypress Grove Humbolt Fog Chevre was delicious. Sadly the blue cheese and goat cheese were in layers and not the hybrid mixture I was hoping for, but both were quite tasty.
Along with chunk of cheese I had romaine lettuce, groats, chopped honey crisp apple, and Stubbs BBQ Sauce for dressing.
Those ingredients sound strange together but it worked.
I’ll see y’all in the am for some running and some baking!
