I’ve started and restarted writing this post three times.
It turns out I have a lot on my Everythingtarian mind and want nothing more than to spell out every little feeling in a cacophony of letters and words on this lil’ blog of mine. I blame my third appointment with M.T. today for making me so contemplative.
More on that later.
However, sometimes the words just don’t flow.
Today, the words want to stay hibernating in their comfortable three-bedroom condos in Florida instead of visiting me in brisk, 63-degree Wisconsin. I can’t say I blame them. Although, I would offer them free Wisconsin Cheese if they did make an appearance here, which should clearly be reason enough to come.
Instead of trying to force them to come hither, I am just going to let them be.
In place of my usual attempts at introspective yet humorous blog posting, I am just going to start by telling you I had sunflower seed butter, banana + cinnamon on toasted Ezekiel bread for breakfast.
It hit the spot, per usual.
I’m sorry peeps, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
After lots of catching up on office things after being gone for more than a week, I snacked on Quaker Cinnamon Oatmeal Squares throughout the day to keep me going…
I find if I have a lil’ something to munch on at work, I am a much more productive employee.
The boss lady can thank me later for that one.
Alright D. Diddy?
For lunch, I wrangled up some carrots + celery and devoured Trader Joe’s Three Layer Hummus to my inner hippie heart’s content…
For dessert, I snacked on a new-to-me TJ’s Fiberful bar, which was a blend of both fruits AND veggies…
It just so happens there is a 1/2 serving of both fruits AND veggies in that baby. Most importantly, it doesn’t actually taste like there is veggies in there.
After my therapy appointment + work, I headed off for a much-needed 60-minute yoga class, where I successfully dozed off in savasana and would probably have kept sleeping if it was not for the fact my friend Curtis was in the class.
For dinner, roughage in the form of a ginormous junk salad was on the menu…
2 cups baby spinach
1/2 cucumber, sliced
1/2 tomato, diced
1 TJ’s Veggie Masala Burger
1/3 cup chickpeas
sprinkle of nooch
sprinkle of sunflower seeds
drizzle of lemon basil pesto dressing
Now, I am sitting here trying to find my writing flow.
I am hoping a Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie will help that cause.
Can’t hurt, right?
