Thanks to everyone who checked out and commented about my new jewelry page!! It means so much to me to have people appreciate my craft. I was telling Brandi that it was really hard for me to put myself out there like that even though I talk about my food and disordered eating so easily. I guess it comes from a different place in the heart.
I woke up feeling almost normal yesterday, yay me. I think the cold portion of my sickness is gone and only a little of the sinus infection lingers! For breakfast, I had a new cereal that I originally picked up for the dear husband. It was All Bran Strawberry Fields that I topped off with ground flax seed and milk. Oh, it is so good! It really reminds me of the red berries in Captain Crunch 😀
The Pro had an off site meeting so lunch was really late. To hold me over, I had what is normally my afternoon snack. Greek Yogurt with peach slices and a sunflower seed butter spoon. I have only seen the nut butter/greek yogurt a couple of times in blogland and maybe I know why now, it isn’t that great. I think it was a texture thing.
The Pro arrived with lunch shortly after 1, he picked up Firebird’s so I got my usual grilled salmon on salad with roasted pecans. There was no jicama this time and that made me very sad 😦 The jicama is usually my favorite part.
Once I got home from work, I felt well enough to give the treadmill a shot. I hadn’t done any exercise since being sick so I decided to do a walk/run interval program that is mainly just walking. It felt good, the only sign of sickness I had was a runny nose and I could tell it had been a while because I struggled with some of the incline segments. The important thing is that I made it through and that I got back at it. I have a tendency to let exercise slide and before I got sick, I was really doing well with being consistent. So, it was nice to feel “back on track”.
After my jaunt on the treadmill and a quick shower, I made dinner. Once again, I used Brandi’s Blogas inspiration. I’m actually starting to wonder what I ate before she started blogging?? 🙂 I made eggs in purgatory which is eggs poached in marinara sauce.
I ended up cooking the eggs too long as the yolks were fully cooked so I don’t think I got the full effect. I served it over brown rice and think next time, I will serve it over polenta and let it cook a little less time. After dinner, I had a bite of leftover brownies to satisfy my sweet tooth.
