Ok, seriously, that is ALL my stomach did today. No matter how much or how often, it was still grumbling. Hormones? Maybe… All the field work (which is probably around 2-3 miles walking)? Maybe… I can’t remember the last time my stomach growled this much…it’s almost kind of exciting, yet scary at the same time because for a very long time I lost touch with what it really felt like to feel hungry. During my bad eating disorder times I always ignored the feeling of hunger and therefore lost all recognition of what it actually felt like. I think it’s finally starting to come back. Exciting! But like I said, yet scary at the same time…because my eating disorder still lingers in my head with bad words to whisper in the dark corners of my brain… yeep.
Anyhow…today started off with RAIN! Yes, RAIN here in southern california (I’m sorry if this is not intriguing to you, but we NEVER get rain here, so it’s exciting!). I woke up, walked outside and BAM! Water everywhere! Thank goodness I had my raingear for the field work I was going to be doing today! But, by the time I got to work it was gone and the sun was out! Has been the rest of the day! But we have severe weather warning all over the place, especially where the fires occurred because there is lots of loose ash and dirt which means, landslides. Not good.
I had to have my breakfast early because field work started at 8am. I had my walnut/raspberry/flax/cinnamon oatmeal around 7.15 this morning! Then off I went!
By the time I got back I was ravenous! I thought my carrots
would do the trick (it was 3 big ones cut up!) but no…so I busted out the apple zbar…but I was looking at it and half the bottom was gone…then I realized there was a hole at the other end…so a bug must have been in there and eating is slowly! Yuck!
thank goodness I had yet to take a bite!!! So instead I had the new seasonal Apple Pear Streusel Clif bar
! I liked this one, but it wasn’t anything too special. I liked how the pear flavor wasn’t too strong because i’m not a fan of pears, but i wanted to try it anyways.
This held me over for about three hours before I dug into my lame lunch. Again, out of many things so no lettuce in my sammie…and if you know me, I LOVE lettuce in my sammies…LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Oh well, I had to w/o today because i had to…ezekial bun w/ laughing cow, tofurky turkey, tomato and some honeydew…
Um, 2 hrs later, stomach was growling again. GEEEeeeeZZzzzz! I had brought this as a snack originally instead of the clif bar, but thank goodness I still had it (otherwise the two snacks probably just would have been reversed). Pb/banana/flat out wrap…i love those the wrap is all kinda gooey and the pb was really strong…Yum.
I’m currently at work (therefore I will post pictures later when I get home…no personal portable drives allowed here!) writing this because I have a very busy night ahead of me as I have to: pack up for the weekend, clean mimi’s cage, pack up stuff to take home as an early move kind of thing, go for my last run before my 10k race on Thursday and bake some stuff for t-day! Garsh!
But I plan on having lots of leftovers for dinner and probably some sort of snack afterwards as I’ll be using up all my energy!
Dinner’s going to be leftover brown rice, very little leftover black beans, some morningstar farm crumbles, veggies and marianara sauce…it’s gonna be good, I can taste it already!!!
Have a great Tuesday night; only one more work day till t-day and a nice long weekend w/ the family!!!
