Hump Day in the Hospital

Happy Wednesday, the weeks more then 1/2 over.  Thank God it’s been one thing after another all week and I’ll be happy when it’s over.   I want to thank everyone who commented yesterday with ideas on how to combat those days where you are just feel hungry alllllll day.  Thanks for the tips!

I woke up this morning to a blanket of snow, Andrew had a snow day from school, I was so jealous, but they didn’t wind up plowing our road until almost 9.  I asked Andrew to drive me in because I’m a complete baby when it comes to driving in the snow.   So I got to work after 10.

Before I left I had a great breakfast of Fage 0% and blueberries.

Delicious combo, I haven’t had blueberries in so long it was a welcome change of pace.

For lunch I had another toasted ww bagel with peanut butter.

I ate about 1/2 of this when I got a text from my mom that said Andrew was coming to pick up her and my sister up to take my sister, Kristin, to the ER.  I couldn’t eat anymore I was so worried.  Kristin had been complaining she didn’t feel good last night and then this morning she fainted.  My mom was really concerned because my sister has only fainted one other time, she hadn’t been hungry, she had a terrible cough, and she didn’t seem right once she came to after passing out.  I felt so bad knowing my little sister was at the hospital and since Andrew was taking her I had no way to get there.  I felt helpless.  Luckily once my boss came back from lunch I explained to her that I was going to be leaving as soon as Andrew could come to get me.  She offered to drive me to the hospital so I wouldn’t chew all my nails off waiting to find out what was going on.

I know Kristin  hates hospitals, and I was worried it was pneumonia or something worse and she’d have to stay awhile.  But luckily once my boss dropped me off they were already running tests on her and it turned out she just had the flu.  I was so thankful, that it wasn’t anything too serious.  I was happy I had gotten there in time for her to get her blood work so I was able to be there to hold her hand.  She’s home now after the felt she was hydrated enough from the IV.  

Once we were able to leave we went back to my parents house to change into our gym clothes.  While I was there I ate the gala apple you see in the background from my lunch.

And here’s a close up:

The gym was pretty much just okay today.  Not my best day but not my worst.  I was so hungry at this point I think my body needed some serious fuel and that apple just wasn’t enough.

Once we got back to the apartment we made something fast and easy.  Chicken Quesadillas.  (Pronounced like the grandma from Napoleon Dynamite does “Make yourself a dang ques-a-dilla!”)

Mine included mexican blend cheese, 4 ounces of chicken, peppers and onions.  With some salsa for dipping.

On the side I also had some brown rice.

It definitely hit the spot after such a long day. I’m so ready for bed, sorry I didn’t get to comment any of your lovely blogs today, I’ll try to do some catching up now but then it’s bed time for serious.

Good night everyone!
