Cranky Pants

April 28, 2009 at 7:43 pm 24 comments

Wasn’t it just the other day that I was talking about how I am in such a good mood when the weather is nicer.  I don’t know what my problem is today, I just felt off.  I wasn’t hungry for anything and I seem to get this way a few times a month, no appetite, terrible mood, and just a general cranky feeling.  I know with the weather being so hot and everything in bloom my sinuses have been a little crazy, and although it’s not a full blown sinus headache I definitely feel the pressure.  All I wanted to do today was come home and go to sleep. 

Today’s title should really be DON’T Eat Like Me.

For breakfast this morning I planned on having Vanilla Chobani with puffins, I knew once I got to work to not even waste the puffins because there was no way I was going to eat the whole container.

I was right I ate maybe half the container and then into the garbage it went.

I started to feel really fatigued so I ran out at lunch time to Dunkin Donuts to grab an iced coffee.

Medium iced coffee with skim milk and splenda.  While I was there I picked up a multigrain bagel lightly tossed with a tiny bit of butter.  They actually listened to me and put about the amount I would put on it.

I ate in my car because I was so cranky I couldn’t stand the idea of going back in to work.

Around 2:30 I realized I needed some fruit so I grabbed an orange.

In the middle of the orange was a baby orange!

Too cute, that made me smile for about 30 seconds.

After work I came right home and wallowed in my crankiness.  I didn’t even know what I wanted for dinner so I didn’t start cooking until I felt some hunger kick in.  Getting off the couch felt like such a chore.  I finally made myself put some water to boil on the stove and had my go to comfort meal of pasta.  I had whole wheat angel hair with too much sauce.

I would guess this is close to a serving size but somehow my kitchen scale melted and won’t turn on.  Of course it did why wouldn’t it? 

I’m off to drink a tall glass of water (it’s 85 in my apartment right now and we don’t have the AC’s in yet.)  And watch some more trashy tv. 

Hope you all have a great night and don’t forget tomorrow is Hump Day!  We’re getting close to the weekend.

    Aw, sorry you’re not feeling great. I was in a similar mood today – for as nice as the weather was. Couldn’t tell what my issue was.

    I don’t think you ate badly today! Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do, you know?

    Aww cranky pants days are the worst. If it makes you feel that looks like a very reasonable amount of pasta and sauce!

    I hope tomorrow is better, chica 🙂

    Argh I know what you mean about being in a cranky mood and not knowing what to do about it or why it’s there. It affects my appetite too.

    I hope you feel better today!

  • 14. dailygoods  |  April 29, 2009 at 9:01 am

    ah we all have those days, and i hope it goes by soon! hope today is better!!! 🙂

    Bummer on the rotton day – I’m sure you’ll feel better tomorrow. I don’t think your eats were bad, a bit lacking in veggies – but I did that exact thing on Monday. 🙂 I’m sure your body was just trying to conserve energy and didn’t need extra fuel.

    (Thanks again for the info on how to get pics off my phone!)

  • 16. Sarah  |  April 29, 2009 at 10:20 am

    sorry for the crankiness, danielle — hope today is better! (p.s. i think it was TOO hot yesterday, not really nice out. could be part of it.)

    you still managed to make really healthy choices (though i would have passed out from starvation on the amount you ate. nothing ever makes my appetite plummet!)

    and there’s no such thing as too much pasta sauce — it’s the best part.

  • 19. ksgoodeats  |  April 29, 2009 at 10:43 am

    I think your eats look great! Especially for having a sinus headache!! Those kill my appetite and make me nauseous!

  • 20. Jenn@slim-shoppin  |  April 29, 2009 at 12:49 pm
