Boy did I sleep well last night! Guess it was that long bike ride or something. I got over 8 hours, which is unheard of for me. My legs felt a little tired, but good.
I decided that today would be a no-sugar day. Started off with a bowl of cream of wheat cooked with a banana and 2 egg whites, topped with pecans and a little prune puree.
Doesn’t it sound like something a 95-year-old would have for breakfast? It was good, though. Except I would have like some fluff on there 😳
Started work on the most frustrating of notes after a 4-day hiatus. You know those days where there are computer issues and you just cannot be productive at all? I really need to find a company that has a different platform to work in. Their in-house programmers really created such a clunky software platform instead of using industry standard ones. It creates a lot of headaches all around and they are constantly updating it. I spent a lot of the morning as close to crying from frustration without actually crying. Great day to decide to go no sugar…..
This is Pixie trying to ignore all my cursing today:
I took a break for lunch and made the chicken curry salad that I have been eating lately.
Yum! Things settled down a bit and I was able to get work done, but it put me a couple hours behind. I was hoping to get in an afternoon run, but that wasn’t going to happen. I was so ready for the latte this afternoon:
My beloved caffeine friend (sprinkled with nutmeg). I also had a dish of blueberries:
Blueberries are such a fun and interactive food, don’t you think? (or is it just me?).
I was going to make BBQ shrimp for dinner, but BBQ sauce has sugar in it, so I had to think of something else. When in doubt – go eggs!
Feta/egg/egg white puff (cooked in the microwave for about 1.5 minutes). I poured the brussel sprouts onto the plate and they landed onto my pear. Ick! I am one of those people who doesn’t like my food touching too much. I’ve always been that way. Gravy was always problematic 😀
I decided to take a run after dinner. I headed down to the track and started plodding. It was really hard tonight. I think it was probably because I biked 40 miles yesterday (duh). After 2 miles, I started to pull to the right, so I stopped. I have a race to run on Sunday and I don’t want to mess that up. I have to say that I have really lost confidence in my running since my injury. Very curious that I so looked forward to a long bike ride yesterday, and running 3 miles fills me with a little unease. I worry that I won’t be able to finish the race (not really likely, but the feeling is still there). I think I won’t feel right about it until I get back to full speed and strength.
I am off to make a protein snack and company is on the way over, so I am out of here! Have a great night 🙂
Question: Are you a food separator?
