Free Pizza and Extra Zzz’s

What a crummy day.  It’s been raining since I woke up this morning, and it’s been cold and windy, definitely the kind of day you just want to stay in bed and read or watch some trashy tv.  But I hear it’s going to be a gorgeous weekend here (in the 70s!) so let’s get this rain out of the way before the weekend!

For breakfast this morning I continued with the bagel/pb combo, today though I had a cinnamon raisin bagel.

Delicious it reminded me that I have a jar of PB&Co cinnamon raisin in my cabinet, so I’ll definitely be breaking that out again soon!

For lunch today I had the other 1/2 of my Chicken Fajita wrap.

As I took my first bite I realized this side had a ton of cheese and whatever it was I wasn’t a fan so I deconstructed this into a bowl and left the cheese to the side.  It was still a great lunch but next time I ordered it (which I totally will) I would get it without the cheese.  They already had to make it special for me because it had a sour cream (yuck) based dressing so removing one more item shouldn’t be too much to ask.

Around 3 I started to get super hungry.  I don’t know why I don’t bring snacks for the days I need them but for real I knew I wasn’t going to make it until I got home so I ran to the vending machine and got some peanuts.  The only decent choice from the vending machine in my office.

Yum and I still have 1/2 the bag left for the next time my hunger strikes. 

Do any of you keep any snacks at your desk at work?  What do you keep in your snack stash, I need some ideas!

As I’ve mentioned Andrew had given up pizza for lent and I knew he had been craving it for a while now, so we decided to meet at a local pizzeria when I got out of work.  I got 2 slices, 1 white, and 1 sausage and pepper.

Right after I took a few bites the guy who worked behind the counter brought me another slice because he felt bad that there were some burnt spots (I actually enjoyed the crispy parts) and he insisted on giving me another slice to take home.  Who is going to turn down a free slice of pizza?  Not this girl!  You’ll see it for my lunch tomorrow.

Clearly I started eating this slice before I realized I forgot to take a picture, it was super thin sausage slices and there were only about 4 on the whole slice but it gave the slice such a great flavor.  I think I’m getting a little burnt out on eating so much meat already though and I’m ready to relax and eat it more infrequently like I used to.

As soon as we got home I got into bed and watched some Real Housewives of NYC and tried to get warm. I am so ready to feel 70 degrees this weekend, it’s like I forget what it feels like to be warm.

Well I have some emails to respond to and I’m hoping to fall asleep by 10.  Melissa at Run, Eat, Repeat is trying to get 8 hours of sleep every night for the next 30 nights.  I know I could the extra Zzz’s so I’ll be following in her footsteps.  Wish me luck!

Bottomless Pit

My goodness I have been so hungry all day!  I know days like this will happen from time to time, and I hope I get better dealing with those days where all I want to do is eat and eat and eat!

Breakfast this morning was Fage 0% yogurt with granola and cranberries.

So good, although Chobani is definitely my favorite this is not far behind.   I love the tart cranberries mixed into the yogurt.  One of my favorite combinations.

My hunger attacks didn’t start until later in the day so this held me over until lunch.

Lunch was a pb and banana sandwich on an Arnold Sandwich Thin.

And 2 of my beloved clementines!!!

That’s what my stomach became a bottomless pit.

At 3 I ate peanuts.

I made it home for dinner without gnawing off my arm somehow.

For dinner I made a stir fry.

It contained

  • a green pepper
  • some onion
  • broccoli stalks
  • carrots
  • chicken
  • & brown rice

This held me over for about 10 minutes.

Then I ate about 8 Quaker Oatmeal mini rice cakes.  Then I drank some water.  Then while I was on the phone with my friend Michelle, I mindlessly grabbed a spoon and my jar of peanut butter and took a big spoonful and ate it right out of the jar.  It was heavenly, but so not needed.    I feel satisfied finally!  But seriously that was a lot of eats in just a couple hours.  Sorry there are no pictures of my snacks they were in my mouth faster then any camera could have snapped a pic of them.

So on days like this where I just can’t get enough food, what’s something I can do?  Does anyone have any tips on squishing that feeling, or a snack that almost always knocks out the hunger?

Hope you all have a good night, I’m hoping for another snow day but I’m not holding my breath.
