This Too Shall Pass…

March 30, 2009 at 9:15 pm 14 comments

Thanks again for all your super sweet comments.  I’ll be able to share everything tomorrow, but it’s going to be a pretty rough night for me tonight so I’m going to post quickly.  Kate from Cooking With Kate left me a comment yesterday that said,

“…just know that “this too shall pass.”

What a perfect thing to remember when things get a little rough.  Really my situation could be a lot worse and I also need to remember to count my blessings.

So let’s jump into today’s eats so I can go unwind and get some sleep!

I slept horribly last night, it took me forever to fall asleep, and when I did it was restless so I was exhausted this morning, I grabbed a Chobani Peach Yogurt on my way out the door.

Lunch today was not planned ahead so I ran out to the outlet center across the street and grabbed a salad.

This salad had:

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Cucs
  • Jalapenos
  • red onions
  • cheddar cheese
  • and light balsamic vinaigrette

On the side I also had a 9 grain whole wheat roll.

I came home and decided instead of being here all by myself in the apartment I would go to my parents house for dinner.  It helped me keep calm to be around my family for sure.  We had pasta with spicy spaghetti sauce, on top of mine I added 1.5 tbsps of ricotta cheese.

It was a delicious meal and who doesn’t love a simple home cooked dinner with family?

Well I’m off to go to bed, I’ll be filling all you guys in on the source of my stress tomorrow.  Enjoy you’re night!

    Your dinner looks great! I hope your stress has passed and that you are feeling better and more relaxed. Usually when things are feeling tough for me (like when I’m running and it’s burning), for some reason the words “Just keep swimming…” pop up in my mind. I don’t know if you’ve seen Nemo but it’s so weird how that little line he says in the movie “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…” pops into my head but then I apply it to whatever I am doing “Just keep running, just keep running”. I don’t know if it will help in the situation you are in but basically it’s a way of telling yourself to just stay strong and work through this. Sending you some strength!
