I hope you’re well! I have been busy, busy, busy! Life is just crazy for me! I can’t believe it’s July next week! I have about three weeks left at work but I can’t even look at a calendar to confirm because it’s too much for me. I can’t WAIT to just be settled and ready for classes. There are a million things I have to do before then- I’ll just press on.
I have eaten really healthy the last two days! I realized (well, it is common sense) that the better I eat, the better I will feel. No need for the added stress of feeling crappy and potential weight gain (I can’t afford a whole new wardrobe).
Big Bowl of work Oats (2 packages of Kashi Heart2Heart Cinnamon Raisin)
Eating oatmeal was a good move on my part. It was a great start to my day.
Lunch was some of the leftover macaroni salad I had on Sunday. YUM!
I was stuck at work until 9:30pm last night so that meant no gym! boo! I had a really great pesto chicken salad from a place called Hot House the guys always order from. I don’t have a photo but it was really, really good! It had amazing grilled chicken breast, sun-dried tomatoes, homemade bacon bits, mixed greens & pine nuts. I wish I had a photo!
I also had a great phone conversation with 3 of my good friends! One of them is getting married and the rest of us are in her wedding party. They are all from my hometown and I have known them for years and years so talking to them is always a blast- it seriously is like no time has past. The wedding is going to be so much fun!
Do you have friends like that?
Today was another busy day! I had a cinnamon raisin bagel & coffee for breakfast.
Lunch was a re-run of yesterday- I don’t waste good food
I had the juiciest, sweetest grapefruit this afternoon! I LOVE a great piece of fruit. I was actually craving more fruit but I didn’t make it down to the store. I definitely need to stock up as I only have one single banana left.
I also chomped on a Quaker Delights raspberry almond dark chocolate granola bar. So tasty! One of my go-to snacks I store in my desk.
I made it to the gym tonight but I must say the workout did not feel good and for the first time in a very long time I felt crappy when I was done!! Unheard of! Perhaps I pushed my lead legs to hard.
Run Stats: 6.5 miles, 1 hour, Average Pace: 9:13 min/mil
Do you ever have off days at the gym?
My tummy ached but I knew I needed some re-fuel. My dinner was boooooooooooring but I didn’t want to put any effort into it as originally planned in my mind at work. I had some of the Stonemill Bakehouse Grains & Honey Bread. One slice had swiss cheese, another had margerine, and the last had Philadelphia light cream cheese mixed with strawberry rhubarb preserve. Veggies were needed so I added some baby carrots & radishes.
Now as the title of this post suggests, I am stressed! I am trying my best to keep it under control. I am actually going to do a little research and include some great ideas on how to deal with it for all you lovely readers suffering from life-stress.
