Hello, hello! I can’t believe how busy I have been the past two days. I did so much running around today I can barely remember what I did yesterday.
After PiYo I went to Whole Foods and fixed my lunch from the salad bar. I made a salad topped with veggies, quinoa, black beans and a hard boiled egg as well as a variety of fruit and a chocolate milk. Once I finished eating I did a little shopping to get a few things we were out of.
When I got home I worked on making my shopping list for my client! Then I did a little relaxing before having my snack of trail mix. I relaxed some more and then got to work on dinner. I made chicken burgers that my dad grilled up. I also made carrot fries and a sweet potato.
I began reading my next book!
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- two big handfuls fresh spinach
After breakfast I got ready to head into Durham. I dropped my mom off at her school and I was on my way to Chapel Hill to go to Trader Joe’s and Kroger to get the groceries on my list. It took me a while to find some of the things on the list, but I think I got everything I need to make the meals and snacks for my client!
Because I slept in and had a late breakfast, I ended up not having a morning snack. I had a late lunch at Panera Bread where I ordered the choose two with Broccoli Cheddar Soup and a turkey sandwich. I ordered the apple as my side. I am so going to recreate that soup. I love it!
Once I finished eating I went to Harris Teeter to get butternut squash and ice to keep all the groceries cold. I then went to my moms school where I spent the rest of the day. When we were ready to go my mom said she wanted to stop at the grocery to get things for dinner because she wanted to go out tomorrow night instead. So I think I hit my all time record for going to 4 different grocery stores in one day!
I spent some time playing sudoku and watching Netflix. My dad ended up having to go back to Roxboro so I told my parents they should have a date night. So I am on my own for dinner!
I think I kind of struggled a little today. I was happy that I slept in because that meant a late breakfast and no morning snack. I have just been feeling so huge lately and I know that part of it is just that I see myself differently than how I really am. But still, I was happy that I was able to listen to my hunger levels and I didn’t have to have a snack when I wasn’t hungry. I have been trying not to think about it so that I don’t get the urge to slip. I don’t know if any of that made any sense, but I am not going to let those negative thoughts weasel their way back in!
