I was so temtped to call this post ‘O Happy Crappy Day’! My day started bright and early at 4:30am when I woke up and could not go back to sleep. By 7:30 I already felt like I had put in a full day’s work! I chose to skip my morning walk because I had two houses to clean today and my poor little Samson has been under the weather yesterday and today. I think he is on the mend, but if he isn’t better by tomorrow, we shall take a trip to the vet.
Thankfully, my day got better as it went and I actually took pictures of all of my food today–well almost. At 6:30am I was STARVING but I didn’t want to eat my real breakfast then. So, I had my last piece of ‘More Than A Meal Bar’. I am going to figure out a way to make those suckers–they are $7.50 a piece and I ate mine way too fast–4 days 🙂
For my real breakfast I ate:
I got the muffin recipe from the book ‘Dr. Mercola’s Total Health Program’. I really like that book and I LOVE the muffins.
After cleaning a house for an 86 yr. old client whom I have become pretty fond of, I came home for lunch and had this:
I found a new dressing the other day that I used for the first time today.
I am NOT motivated to make my own dressing and was really pleased with this gluten free roasted garlic dressing!
Oops–almost forgot my dessert!
I don’t think a day EVER goes by without me having something sweet! I think every tooth in my mouth is a sweet tooth!
After lunch, I went to clean my brother’s house–which is brand new and makes me want to live there 🙂
For snack, I had a little problem with my yogurt.
I was going to eat the WholeSoy yogurt and when I tasted it, it was awful!! I think it was spoiled even though the date was still good. I hate it when stuff like that happens. So, in the trash it went and I ate the rest of my Wildwood yogurt. I like the Wildwood and it is what I normally eat, but I found the other on sale–now I know why! I have gone back and forth about the whole soy debate, but having to be dairy free, I have decided that a little soy is not going to kill me.
I used Healthy ‘N Fit egg white protein powder in strawberry passion flavor. I REALLY like that brand of protein powder! It is ONLY sweetened with stevia which is a huge plus in my book! I had vanilla ice cream flavor before and just recently ordered the strawberry.
By dinner time, my early morning was really getting to me! I almost fell asleep driving home. I was too lazy to fix anything difficult–so this is what I had (while trying to watch a netflix movie that refused to load):
I really wanted something else a little while after dinner, but I have gotten in a bad habit of eating too late in the evening. It is usually NOT because I’m hungry but just because I want to munch. I am trying really hard to stop eating by 7pm. Of course, if I’m really hungry I will eat something else, but I think my belly feels better when it isn’t full at bedtime.
That is a pretty typical day for me–most of the time. Sometimes, I eat some grains, but I don’t really do well with them. My ND suggested that I have 1 serving of grains every three days. Yeah right! If I have grains, I only want more grains. Then I feel icky, bloated and depressed!
I have dishes calling my name, but honestly, I think I am ready to crash! Hope you all had a wonderful day 8)
