Every once in awhile, I have a day that all I crave are sugar and carbs. Well, yesterday was one of those days. I notice that these days mostly come on when I’m: A) tired; B) stressed; or C) all of the above. Yesterday was C) all of the above – tired and stressed.
I just could not for the life of me “wake up” yesterday and felt kind of blah and lazy all day. If I could’ve, I probably would’ve napped and camped out on the couch all day. That’s totally not my style, but I think the constant go-go-go lately is finally catching up to me. It’s not ending any time soon either, so I better get used to it.
And then there was the stress part. I guess I need to remind myself of my challenge, eh? My brain has been in a whirlwind thinking about getting ready for Mother’s Day (4 moms to think about is no easy feat), sorting out the details of Blend Retreat with Fabletics (they have some pretty awesome stuff in store for all of you Blend attendees – just sayin’), continuing to work on moving stuff (hoping to move next week!), and then there’s that interview I have today (more on that soon!).
Yiiiikes. I am feeling just a tad overwhelmed.
I know it’ll all settle down in due time though. I just need to chill the heck out and not think about it so much. Ha! Easier said than done, but we’re just going with it.
In honor of What I Ate Wednesday (thanks for the link-up, Jenn!), I’ll be sharing my sugar and carb filled day. I didn’t go too crazy or anything, but most of my snacks and meals were definitely more on the sweeter side.
Yup, still on the English muffin kick! I topped mine with Peanut Butter & Co. The Bee’s Knees peanut butter and Mamma Chia chia seeds. A side of strawberries were also consumed because strawberries are da bomb lately.
Two of these little balls. I’m not sure what I’m going to call them yet. I made them for a recipe I’ll be sharing with you in the next couple weeks. Let’s just say they’re pretty darn good.
Lunch was basically breakfast. I didn’t mind one bit since breakfast is my favorite meal. I had a green smoothie made with banana, spinach, JAVAPRO protein powder (I neeeeded the caffeine in a bad way), spinach, and almond milk. Simple and yummy!
And then there was a small bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats, just because I wanted them.
I got a couple tea cookies in my Merco Box awhile back that I totally forgot about until yesterday when I spotted them in the pantry. They were pretty amazing and totally hit the sugar and carb spot. They tasted like a light lemon muffin morphed into a cookie. Yum.
Somewhere in there I also ate some cheese and crackers. No, I didn’t eat that whole block of cheese. It was tempting though. I cheese.
Leftovers! Dinner was leftover pot roast with a side salad. Nothing too special, but it did the job!
These lemon bars from Trader Joe’s are amaaaazing. Two of ‘em went in my belly.
So yeah, carb and sugar mania here. But whatever, it happens from time to time, right? And at least I got a few fruits and veggies in there to balance it all out.
