Oh, what a world.

Yesterday was exhausting.  I ran 5 miles then realized that maybe I didn’t get enough sleep to run those 5.  I managed to fuel properly, but my body was saying “Enough!”

Repeat of Thursday.  Protein yogurt, corn muffin with raspberry jam and smart balance, and an apple for dippy-do.  
Sandwich thin with melted Veggie Slices and apricot jam.  Try it, it’s good!
Along with a big ol’ bowl of minestrone soup:
And a plum with a bunch of strawberries.
Dinner went unphotographed but it was pretty wonderful.  Mom cooked up grilled chicken, corn on the cob that she then sauteed with olive oil, a fresh salad with vinaigrette, broccoli, and asparagus.  Wonderful and comforting.  
Dessert was a bit of a take on a peach crisp, but for one! I microwaved a peach, then crushed two amaretti cookies and put some frozen yogurt on top.
Today was my day off from working out, but my day OF work.  I knew I wouldn’t be eating much at work so I kept my breakfast hearty: 3 eggs, English muffin with some coconut oil, and fruit.
Lunch: a Maple Pecan Probar with a peach.  I LOVE this flavor, and it kept me full for a good three and a half hours.
I threw dinner together immediately when I got home.
1/2 cup leftover roasted corn.  So delicious! Like candy.
Along with roasted asparagus and carrot:
And a chicken breast on a sandwich thin with a Veggie Slice, light mayo, arugula, onion, and hot sauce.
And for dessert? Soy peanut butter chocolate ice cream with a tsp of Trader Joe’s Flaxseed Peanut Butter on top, along with Reddi-Whip!
Oh holy crap.  I was SO happy when I got the idea to put the PB on top.  It got gooier as it spread, making it almost like a warm peanut buttery topping you find in a sundae shop.  Only almost 100% vegan.  
Now I’m thinking about having some cherries, and drinking plenty of tea.  
I noticed this morning that I’m getting a little bit thin.  My stomach disease is one that prevents me from eating as much as I should, so my weight ebbs and flows when a flareup is imminent.  If I go up three pounds, I look great.  If I go down five, which I think I have, I don’t look so good.  It sucks.  But I know that I’m trying my very best to take care of myself through proper diet and exercise.  I just need to get my rest squared away.
Now, off to watch some gluttony on Man Vs. Food.  God, I love this show.  Adam is trying to chow his way through 7 pounds of crab legs.  Holy smokes! I love me some crab, but wowza.

One thought on “Oh, what a world.

  1. your food looks delicious! you've got me drooling at my desk at 9 oclock in the morning.

    and from the looks of it, you are eating very healthy. I wouldnt be worried about how you look, it all depends on how you feel.
