On those days, there is one thing guaranteed to release the angry everythingtarian beast in me: 90’s white boy rap. Specfically, a lil’ Fred Durst.
All I need to do is grab my 9th grade Limp Bizkit CD and start rockin’ out at the top of my lungs. And yes, that includes some major round-the-world head bangin’ with my curly fro hair. My hair was born to head bang. My absolute favorite part to scream happens to be the very first line of the song: “It’s just one of those days, when you don’t want to wake up, everything is $%*#ed, everybody sucks. You don’t know why, but you want to justify rippin’ someone’s head off…”
Well said Fred, well said.
Luckily, I also have this lil’ thing called writing where I can let it all out. All day, I was clamoring to get home, park my pancake flat tush in front of the computer and type it all out. That says a lot, especially considering I spend all day on a computer and loathe the fact I leave work many days computer glazed.
Despite today’s shittayness, my morning started out quite lovely with a bowl of Banana Split Overnight Oats. The only thing missing from this beauty was fresh pineapple…otherwise, twas’ perfection.
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup organic skim milk
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. brown rice protein powder
1 packet NuNaturals stevia
(mix + let sit overnight)
1/2 sliced banana
1/2 cup strawberries
drizzle of sunflower seed butter
Seriously, look at that mountain of lusciousness…
I got work slightly late, and from 8:10am to 11:45am, I don’t actually remember anything I did. All I know is that work was insane today, and not in a good way.
Anyways, I ended up continuing the strawberry banana party at 12:30pm, when I ate the first part of my lunch. This yog mess disappeared in about 2.3539 seconds.
3/4 cup 0% plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup Raspberry Galaxy Granola
1/2 sliced naner
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1 tbsp. Nuttzo (last of the jar :()
Running out of Nuttzo is reason enough to want to break stuff. Seriously.
I was going to head out to Subway to grab lunch #2, but I received an oh-so-convenient from a co-worker saying they had extra food from a party in their office. Score. Free food? I’m there. I have $5.74 in my checking account and don’t get paid until tomorrow. No shame.
Raw veggies, pecan cinnamon bread (amazing), tortilla chips + layered taco dip…
And yes, I picked out the olives. No me likey.
You know how people often say, “It was the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Well, as trite as it sounds, that was the phone call I received around 5pm. Suddenly, I was a crying, goobery mess. Luckily, one of my BFFs was on the other line and calmed me down. Nothing horrible is going on in my life, I assure you. Just an amalgamation of many things. I believe Forrest Gump said it best: shit happens.
Then, I headed out on a cathartic 4-mile run with Brett before returning home to this…
3/4 cup organic skim milk
1/4 cup POM juice
1 cup frozen strawberries
3/4 small banana
2 tbsp. brown rice protein powder
2 cups baby spinach
All I wanted was a smoothie, so damn it – that’s what I had.
Now, I am jammin’ out to my Ray LaMontagne Pandora station and have last week’s LOST and The Office episodes ready to watch in bed. Hey, it’s no Limp Bizkit, but there will be head bangin’ nonetheless.
How do you deal with “one of those days?” Sharing is caring!
