I’ve been trying to let myself sleep in as late as possible this week and bars help me do that. I ate this White Chocolate Macadamia Clif Bar in the car on the way to the hospital.
I’m feeling a lot better from Monday but I’m still making a point of not skipping breakfast.
For lunch I veganized my favorite bean salad by swapping out cheese cubes for spicy Nayo.
Black eyed peas + chopped green pepper + smoked almonds + spicy Nayo.
Nothing is ever as good sans cheese but this was still pretty damn good.
With a Mango Coconut Sparkling KeVita.
And cola breeze and sour mix and match gummies for dessert.
I found these Goody Good Stuff Gummies at 7-11.
They are vegetarian and pretty good, though they are a little soft for my tastes. The husband loved them though; he had one taste and rest of my bags were gone.
I am having a really great time at the pediatric hospital, but I have to admit that I am really stressed out right now. There are a lot of things happening in my school and personal life at the moment that are freaking me out. I can’t talk about any of it on the blog, but I will say that I am a giant ball of stress. My stomach hurts all of the time.
Thankfully I had the afternoon free to decompress. I did some fun baking (and tasting!).
Then I brought a friend some of my baked goods and we had a mutual vent session.
And I walked to and from the gym. The icy patches made the trips take forever, but it was a good way to clear my head.
At the gym, I did another Couch to 10k treadmill workout. 4 minutes of walking / 1 minute running, x9.
I ate these Darrell Lea Strawberry Licorice while I cooked dinner.
I kept it simple.
What do you do to let off steam when you are feeling stressed?
