Yep, it was one of those days…
Maybe after working out in the field for so many days in a row, so many hours at a time, with no company…I needed the sweet goodness of chocolate.
But I digress, the day didn’t start out that way. Just a few hours later.
And the same breakfast as yesterday…it just never gets old. Oh, except I used Naturally more PB this time, with the Kashi Go Lean Crunch, peach and strawberries.
The morning went by so slowly…it was really warm and there were simply no birds anywhere so simply put, I was bored to tears. I had some trains to keep me company. These beauties can carry up to 100 carts at a time!
I left this morning only a 1/2 hour later than normal but something was up with the body. Maybe it was the heat? I don’t know, but water was certainly not doing the trick. I do this survey and normally get done by around lunch time so I thought I’d be able to handle it until then without food…which I didn’t bring.
Thanks goodness I always have smashed up bars at the bottom of my bag. And a random apple I forgot about from yesterday.
And the boredom ensued…trying to keep myself occupied by counting windmills instead of birds…because there were none.
And then the pain started. OMG I don’t know how I was ever able to ignore the hunger pains when I was at my worst during my ED. I was in so much pain I felt sick. I was in so much pain I wanted to faint. I seriously, could have eaten my arm. I had no food at this point and was just hoping I could keep myself calm enough for the ride home to not get caught by a cop and get a speeding ticket. As soon as I got home I dropped everything at the door and ran to the kitchen. Literally, I ran. It’s about 25 feet.
I whipped up the fastest mango/blueberry/spinach/USVAB smoothie in a bowl I could, topped off with Kashi Go Lean Crunch and regular TJ’s PB.
It was like breakfast all over again, except the fruit were blended.
And I might have gotten a bit carried away with how fast I was forcing my sad blender to blend and make my food…cause i chewed on this at one point.
Oh spatula, I am so sorry. But you make the greatest and most tasty food. Sorry I don’t take better care of you.
I had plans to do my No Trouble Zones DVD this afternoon to take some time off from running…but I ended up on the floor reading and catching up on blogs, environmental news and research and emails I had lost track of…along with some dried cherries and peanuts/cashews to pass the time. It’s ok, I’ll do the DVD tomorrow. Maybe.
Faster than I realized I was hungry for dinner and needed food asap. It was like my body couldn’t get enough food today…I was famished! I whipped up two eggs and topped them on a salad w/ salsa and leftover potatoes from last night.
Makes me wonder how days like this come about, where my hunger is completely insatiable and I can’t do anything but eat and eat and eat. Thoughts? What do you do on days like this?
So I had some more chocolate. Don’t hate, cause I’m not. They were ubber super tasty.
It’s the end of the day and only one more till the weekend…and some birthday celebrations. Super.freak’n.excited.
25 years of age in 4 simple days. Makes me feel old…actually, just more mature and having learned so much. I’ll review my 24th year with you this weekend. And let you in on the things I plan/hope to accomplish in my 25th.
