Mondays are pretty fantabulous, especially when they are over. I was pretty tired all day because being a night owl and the time change don't mix. How about you guys?
Thanks for the comments on my last post! You girls are so sweet that if I told you I was throwing giant tires and pulling monster trucks in my backyard for a workout, I bet I would still get some positive feedback out of you! In addition to the workout comments, you also mentioned that 'everything I ate today' is not your preferred style. Me neither! I love to read the stories and highlights behind the food, but sometimes I'm curious. Today I hope to give you a story along with the food.
Wake up at 7:30. Correction. Alarm goes off, I send hubby to get ready first and then I'm dragged out of bed at 7:45.
Consume breakfast cookie and coffee at 8:05
This bad boy had 1/2 cup oats, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, almond milk, acai juice, 1/2 banana, and 1/4 cup whole almonds. I frosted it with plain greek yogurt, vanilla stevia drops, and cocoa powder.
Commute to work from 8:15 - 9:05 I answered work email, personal email, and read some blogs! Once I got to work, I did some work stuff and worked on my second cup of coffee.
11:15- my stomach started to growl. Only slightly disturbed that I was hungry for lunch at what was 10:15 only a few days ago, I went with it! I enjoyed a massaged kale salad.
By 12:15, it was time for my second course of lunch, because I'm into fine dining. It also take me forever to eat my lunch because I'm constantly interrupted by this thing called work.
It was so good, I had to do it twice...and did at 2ish
By 4:30 I thought it was time to go home soon! I grabbed my pre-workout snack!
This is about 1 cup of Barbara's Shredded Spoonfulls. Love.
The clock struck 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 6:30. I was still working away on a deadline. I grabbed a couple of cashews, another few pieces of cereal, and an oreo to get me through my evening. THIS is why I don't picture everything I eat. It would drive me bats*it crazy!
6:45- run to the train. Several people who don't understand escalator politics slow me down (is it conventional knowledge that if you are slower, you stand to the right, and if you need to book it, you walk to the left?). I find out that the next train is 22 minutes away. No problemo! My phone has the internets and I can reeeeaaad!
7:15- transfer trains. Apparently there are mechanical problems and the new train doors don't open. No worries.
7:20- the train I'm on powers down and it's dark in the train for a few creepy minutes.
7:45- the train reaches the next station and we are evacuated because the train is literally smoking. And no, it wasn't just my presence!
8:15 I'm home! Monday chest and tris day is trumped with feeding my belly and getting to an assignment I was helping my hubby with. I made a gigantor salad.
8:25 Salad is demolished while tinkering with our DVD player and turning on Julie and Julia. All the fine dining on TV inspires my dessert only in the way that I must have dessert!
8:30 I meet my increasing apple quota. Why do you think I name the blog the name it has?
My thoughts on blogging everything that crosses my lips is that it's a lot of work and not my style. Also, my days vary widely; today I wanted to defy the fiber limits of my stomach and ate my weight in produce. Tomorrow, I'll eat crazy combos like cheese and apples and cookies. I don't think any given day is completely representative of my nutrition needs or habits, but it was kinda fun to see it all. I didn't do anything differently today (except had a lot of adventures at work and getting home and missed a workout) and I'm sure tomorrow will bring more randomness and perhaps a completely different nutritional profile. I like to be flexible in my days and there's always tomorrow or the next meal to make new choices.
10:00 Hubby came home and I'm drinking my peppermint tea and finishing my post. I'm running off to watch How I Met Your Mother and to date my husband for a little bit before we go to bed!
Have a good day/night amigos!
