Drained

March 11, 2009 at 8:35 pm 14 comments

Thanks for being so understanding about last night’s crappy post.  I don’t know what’s wrong with me lately, I just feel physically drained, I’d love to blame it on Daylight Savings Time but I’m getting the same amount of sleep most nights, the other night I had a restless night but surely I must have made that up by now.  I just feel like from the moment I get up to the moment I lay down I’m constantly going.  This Saturday I will make the time to go to the gym at some point but other then that I am having a me day, I have some of ideas of what it will include, but suggestions are welcome.  When you want to treat yourself what’s your favorite thing to do?

I’m going to make this post quick as well so I can get into bed and get another full nights sleep.

For breakfast today I had a 2% Plain Fage yogurt with peak protein granola.

I’ve loved all the Fage yogurt I’ve received but for plain I definitely prefer the 0%. Flavored 2%’s are fine but I really like the 0% better.

A little before lunch I got hungry so I snacked on what was supposed to be a part of lunch.  Some grapes that were on their way out, I had toss quite a few of them.

For lunch I had a pb and raspberry preserve sandwich on an Arnold Thin.

Looks like my sandwich is sticking his tongue out at me.

Around 3:30 I got hungry again, and I wanted popcorn, so I took a single serving size 100 calorie bag to one of the microwaves, within in a minute it smelled like burning so I took it out, more then half of those little kernels didn’t pop, and about 1/2 of the ones that did pop were burnt, disappointing to say the least.

Such was my day.

For dinner I made tacos with the MorningStar Veggie crumbles, the texture took some getting used to but it was really good, I put the taco “meat” over a bed of romaine, 4 mini sweet peppers, taco cheese, and some onion, for dressing I used taco sauce.

A little while after dinner we got ready to go to the gym but stopped by my parents house to see their new couch, very nice and comfortable, I see many naps on that couch in my future.  As we were leaving Andrew found some soft pretzel he had left from school, I gladly took a piece from him.

The gym sucked, I just don’t have the energy, I did as much as I could on the treadmill, and then accidentally punched it, I pushed the emergency stop button, and waited for the pain to go away, then restarted it, then I realized how crappy I felt and how I did not want to be there, and instead of pushing through I freaking gave up.  I feel like I’m getting upset ofverstupid stuff lately and I need to calm the heck down.  I should have stuck it out, but I got too upset over something stupid and decided to leave.  Tomorrow WILL be a better day at the gym.

So after we came home I decided to crack open a container of fro yo that’s been in my freezer for over a month, just haven’t been in the mood for it lately.  But tonight the craving was there and I gave into it.  I had a serving of the frozen yogurt and some chocolate chips on top.  Heavenly.

Well I’m off to read and go to bed, I’m reading A Thousand Years Of Solitude and so far it’s pretty good.  Hope you all have a really good night!!!  See you tomorrow, and by then it will be Thursday!  We’re almost there!!!!

    Sorry to hear about your bummer of a gym day–you need the rest!

    This may sound really strange, but when I want to treat myself, I pick out a magazine and an expensive yogurt that I don’t normally buy (e.g., Fage, Voskos, etc.). Then sit back and enjoy your mag with a dish of yogurt:)

    hope today is better! the fro yo looks really good 🙂

    Vanilla frozen yogurt w/ chocolate chips is one of my favorite desserts of all time!!!

    When I want to treat myself I get a massage (only once a year or so . . . but SO worth it!)

  • 6. fitforfree  |  March 12, 2009 at 8:18 am

    Also, going to a health club that has a sauna or hot tub and relaxing in it!

    manicures aren’t too expensive, but always make you feel a little pampered! 🙂

  • 8. Mariposa  |  March 12, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    yay! tomorrow is friday!!! hope today is better than the last few days, i know i have been feeling crappy with the time change.. i had to drag myself out of bed the last few mornings!

    sounds like a *you* day is definitely needed and deserved! I like just sitting on a big sofa in Starbucks with a book (that I inevitably pretend to read when actually people watching!) Maybe some pampering? Manicure/pedicure? Movie at home curled up with take out and big soft blanket?..

    Make sure you do something soothing and fun 🙂

    Sorry to hear you are out of sorts – but have fun on Saturday!

    When I treat myself – I get a manicure and a pedicure – but only in the summer time so I can wear flip flops!

    Hang in there! Love the taco sauce “dressing!” 😀

  • 11. Leah  |  March 12, 2009 at 4:47 pm

    Get some rest! It sounds like you need it! I’ve been feeling so drained this week too. What is it about March so far eh?? I live in England though and we didn’t change the clocks so I can’t blame it on that… rest up!!!

  • 12. Emily  |  March 12, 2009 at 5:35 pm

    Oh my! I want that fro yo! 😀 Enjoy your upcoming weekend!!

  • 13. Sarah  |  March 12, 2009 at 6:37 pm

    awww, sounds like a rough day. sometimes the motivation just isn’t there! so glad you found a way to end things on a high note with that yummmmy froyo, mmmmmmm.

    p.s. your sandwich’s pb tongue is adorable 🙂

  • 14. Aimee  |  March 12, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    For a while I packed a taco salad using Morningstar crumbles for my lunch every day, but I haven’t had one in months. I’ll have to bring it back after seeing yours.
