I started the day yesterday with another bowl of Tj’s Honey Nut O’s topped with walnuts, banana and this time I chose plain hemp milk. I really do enjoy the plain hemp milk in my cereal, it has a nice creamy flavor without being too sweet and it is super good for you. One thing that I have noticed with this breakfast is that I get hungrier faster, probably the lack of fiber in the cereal.
Speaking of getting hungry, things didn’t go very well for me regarding lunch. I was hungry really early and went down and asked for a grilled cheese and tomato on wheat with a fruit cup. About an hour later, I hadn’t heard from or seen anyone from the kitchen. I decided that they must be busy and went to scope out the staff lunch. There was a delightful looking salad with fennel, grapes, blackberries and iceberg lettuce and though I am over salad, I was really hungry at this point. I topped it off with the house made balsamic vinaigrette and headed back up stairs.
I figured my lunch would come any minute but alas, it did not. I went down to the kitchen to find it deserted. I did find the assistant F & B manager and told him to tell chef that I would just eat some PB from my stash. And that is what I did. I had a few crackers and white chocolate dreams PB. There are no photos because my blood sugar was in the basement and I needed food ASAP.
After lunch, I still didn’t feel right, my head was swimming and I could tell that my blood sugar was not recovered. A couple of hours past before I felt OK again and then I felt ravished with hunger again. I had a fage with honey to get me through until dinner time. By the time I left work, I was in a rotten awful mood and for some reason, I just wanted to get on my treadmill. I can’t say for sure what is going on with me but I have really been finding some major stress relief in my treadmill and yoga.
So, when I got home, I hit treadmill with a sex and the city episode for right at 30 minutes. After the treadmill, I heated up a bowl of roasted veggie soup to start dinner and cooked a frozen pizza for the main dish. The pizza was an off the wall random brand that we found in Ukrop’s one day. It boasted all sorts of great things and come to find out, it tasted awful. I only ate a few bites before giving up on dinner.
After dinner, we went upstairs for some computer time and a little yoga. We did a 25 minute shoulder opening flow. This really helps with my shoulder pain and is great for building strength in the arms and shoulders.
Since I hadn’t really eaten much all day and I felt hungry, I had a bowl of Tj’s whole grain chocolate filled squares topped with hemp milk. Bleh. I did not like it but the dear husband was happy to finish it off! I ended up making an egg sandwich. After that, my stomach and mouth wre both happy!
QOTD: Do you ever have days were it seems that food just is not working out for you?
