Every morning for the past few mornings, I have been trying to wake up at 5:00 am in order to hit the treadmill before work. And for the past few mornings, I just haven’t been able to do it. It’s like my exercise mojo has been lost….again. So, instead of starting my day with exercise, I started it with a bowl of hot grain cereal, wheatberries, oats and bulgur. I added some local blackberries and some almond butter. Boy, I am really liking these blackberries! I had a small glass of milk along side to wash down my vitamins and medicine.
After breakfast, I headed to work for another fun filled day in golf world. Things have really slowed down for us, thank goodness, so I am trying to get all caught up before we pick back up in September. I stayed busy for a good part of the morning and was able to get a lot of things done. Around 10, I had a banana and then around 11:30, I went out to pick up celebration sushi. Yesterday was my one year anniversary with golf world and T and I will use any ole excuse to eat sushi. We each got a kryptonite roll and shared some dumpling soup. This is the best sushi, ever. We don’t eat it often because it is really spendy but today we were celebrating.
I worked a little late because I had a therapy session and didn’t really have time to go home first. Therapy was awesome, I hadn’t had such an intense session in a long time. We talked about how I am starting to feel rebellion against not eating until full anymore. She wondered if maybe I am sabotaging my own happiness by holding myself back from attaining my goal. I have lived a hard and interesting life and have finally found happiness in my present circumstances, all except my weight. She and I both wonder what is holding me back from really getting to where I want to be. I’ve got lots of work to do to find out.
After therapy, I came home to snobby joes and salad. Dear husband had pulled the snobby joe sauce from the freezer and heated it up in the microwave. We had them in whole wheat wraps with mozzarella cheese and grainy mustard. I actually think it was better this time than last! This recipe is a keeper for sure!
A couple hours after dinner, I was hungry again. It truly amazes what a difference smaller meals makes in my hunger level. I had a bowl of the chocolate hazelnut biscotti cereal again, it was so tasty. And for those wondering, this cereal comes from Target. It is the Archers Farms brand and there is a whole section of fun cereals made my them. They are nutrionally sound, whole grains, ingredients you recognize and have something for everyone.
Shortly after the cereal, I headed off to bed. I needed my beauty sleep!
