…all over the place! Figuratively speaking. I don’t know where my head is but my meals have been less than impressive; lots of junk food, not a lot of veggies, and I keep forgetting to eat breakfast. Adam was preparing for an important exam and between that, getting used to working, and obsessing over some new books, I’ve felt a little crazy. It is what it is.
This was a no breakfast day. And I didn’t manage to pack lunch before work either. I ended up grabbing a mix of co-op salad bar.
Cucumber salad, farro salad, vegan pasta salad, and a few dolmas.
Plus a Sweet Leaf Sweet Tea.
When I got home I had chip and dip leftovers.
Plain low-fat yogurt with banana slices and a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk.
And a giant bowl of frosted flakes with skim milk.
I guess I didn’t have it together for dinner either.
I ate breakfast! Cottage cheese stirred into a Liberte Coconut Yogurt.
But I packed the stupidest lunch of all time.
and a Fiber One cookie.
Supplemented with an iced Earl Grey with skim milk.
And the last of my chips and dip when I got home.
Saturday morning Adam took the biggest, 8+ hour, most important exam he’ll take in his entire life (seriously, he’s done nothing but study the past month) so we went out for a celebratory dinner with another couple that night.
I made a small plate from the communal cheese board.
And drank a (giant?!) glass of riesling.
For dinner I ordered the pesto spatzle.
I loved the idea of the innovative pesto (romaine! pistachio! mint!) but sadly didn’t enjoy the execution. You know that I can throw down with some heavy food but this dish was missing some desperately needed acid to cut through the richness. I ate a few bites and figured that my chip appetizer would keep me from starving 😉
I started my morning with Harvest Bay Coconut Water,
and chicken salad.
Plus a shake shared with the husband.
(Thank you birthday freebie coupons!)
Mid-day I headed to yoga. 60 minute hot yoga class. Love love loved it. This was definitely the high point of the last few days.
Then we had more ice cream; I can’t resist the allure of birthday freebies.
That’s a kid’s size vanilla frozen yogurt with reeses pb cup and cookie dough.
Veggies, chicken, and macaroni were consumed on a shopping trip.
Plus a mug of cocoa at home.
It was delicious but unnecessary. As I wrote up this recap I was fairly disgusted by the amount of sugar (and chips!) I ate over the past three days.
Around 7:00 we hunkered down in the kitchen for a mega cooking session. Three dishes were on the agenda – tonight’s dinner, tomorrow’s dinner, and tuna casserole to freeze for Adam for the week I’m in Ohio. Two out of three worked out. After spending a lot of time making Janetha’s cauliflower crust pizza I covered it in marinara that turned out to be covered in mold.
Uggggh! Adam threw out our dinner and I threw a fit on the floor. I took a giant bite of marinara sauce before I spotted the mold so a lot of histrionic gagging went down.
Then a bunch of other shit happened and many hours later I ate nachos for dinner.
