That’s a lil’ thing I like to call soul…with a side of douchelord for good measure. And because The Killers – despite the fact they haven’t come out with decent music since “Hot Fuss” – have provided me with the perfect theme for my post:
All these things that I’ve done.
After a crazy busy couple weeks of work, I was expecting this week to slow down a bit. However, that’s been anything but the case. Since Sunday, I’ve been booked solid. Completely booked. Don’t believe me? Ask the three days of dirty dishes currently sitting in the kitchen sink.
1 cup Kashi Heart 2 Heart cereal
1 crumbled Healthy Breakfast Bar
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 smashed naner
1 T peanut butter
It’s been chugged down with massive amounts of coffee. I would cut down, but I don’t want to.
Because when you’ve had five alcoholic beverages in the past two days, you need something to get you out of bed and functioning for work. In my defense, Monday night was an accidental episode of tipsy-ness while last night I had a planned celebration for Diana, one of my best friends who just so happens to be moving to London this Friday (!!!) to live with her British boyfriend.
It’s okay. You can say it – I hate her too.
Because of my poor life choices these past couple days, I had one thing to do today: keep the eats clean.
Wrappage, applesauce + pickles.
What’s in said wrappage, you ask?
That would be some spinach artichoke hummus, baby spinach + 1 carrot.
This post could also be titled, “all these things that i haven’t done” because clearly I wasn’t that concerned about clean eating. Lunch involved a walk to the Wednesday farmer’s market where I found this…
Spinach + cheese empanada? Don’t mind if I do.
My rationale was that it would perhaps soak up the remaining alcohol still hanging out in my bloodstream. Rationalizing…another thing I’ve done lately.
I’ve also been seriously snacking my face off these past couple days.
Almonds + dried tart cherries? Another Healthy Breakfast Bar?
Again, don’t mind if I do.
I should probably use my time more wisely and instead, figure out why I’ve been eating when I’m not really hungry and biting my nails down to record low lengths. I know it’s stress. Now, as far as what is exactly stressing me out, I’m still trying to figure that one out…
The good thing is you can rationalize and blame anything on stress.
I thought a 75-minute vinyasa yoga class would help clear my mind. It helped…a bit. Talking to my dear friend Thomas on the phone helped more. Sometimes all it takes to calm the craziness is some friend therapy + massive amounts of veggies…
That would be three heads of broccoli roasted at 400 degrees in 1/2 T olive oil, garlic powder, crushed red pepper + salt and then topped with 1 cup garden vegetable marinara sauce + 2 T nutritional yeast.
Now, yours truly is going to shower, do the dishes and GET. TO. BED. I agreed to go with my friend Steph to a 6am spinning class tomorrow morning. What the h#*& was I thinking?
Thinking…clearly one of the things I haven’t done.
