tuesday’s entirety.

in meals

helllooooo and happy tuesday. holy geez, i was in rough shape ALL the day today. i got home from the concert last night and it was after 1 AM. and then, for some horrible reason, i couldn’t fall asleep until 2:30 in the A-M! soooo bugged. it made my 7:18 wake up call slightly worse than usual.

anyway, enough bitching and complaining.. let’s talk about today’s meals & (lack of) moves! i documented everything and my dSLR is still broken, so iphone pics it is! bear with me.

first meal of the day=1 whole egg over easy plus 3 whites (and ketchup!), a slice of ezekiel toast, and some fresh strawberries that were SO good. yay for summer fruits.. i cannot WAIT for peaches.

i also had coffee with coconut milk creamer. i am back to coffee every day and my stomach is A-OK with this arrangement.

  IMG_9075IMG_9076

i periodically filled my contigo water bottle up throughout the day. gotta get that gallon in!

IMG_9093

oh, and i happened to find a volcom dress in the depths of my closet and wore it to work today. this little number was purchased in 2002—yep, 11 years ago! i was a year out of high school.. pretty sure i still have some clothes from high school, too.

lunchtime rolled around and my plate was a bit on the random side. i had four ounces of cooked chicken (from trader joe’s) with yellow mustard and a couple servings of raw cauliflower. i also had the last little bits of toppings from last night’s greek salads: marinated artichokes, cucumbers, and tomatoes.

i also had an apple to finish off the lunch because i have the need to end everything on a sweeter note. i stole some of kerryne’s sunflower seed butter to pair with the apple.

after work i was literally dozing off while driving home. i ate about a gajillion of these babies to keep me awake. i love ’em!

IMG 9109

i picked the pups up from daycare and got home with only 10 minutes to spare before i would have to leave for GPP (my gym.) i decided to nix the gym. i was bummed about it because it was a heavy lifting day with squat cleans (which i LOVE) but i couldn’t go do that workout not feeling 100%. in fact, i wasn’t even at 50%.. my tank was on empty. instead of the gym, i made a snack.

IMG 9111IMG 9112 IMG 9113

i made a protein shake with plant fusion protein powder (sample from blend retreat swag!), 1.5 cups almond milk, ice, 3  cups spinach, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and 1/8 tsp xanthan gum for thickening purposes. i also had a piece of PBJ toast. i LOVE toast almost as much as i love cereal! speaking of cereal.. i poured some attune buckwheat flakes into that protein shake after the photo. i enjoyed my snack while reading the latest issue of oxygen. i wasn’t working out.. but at least i READ about working out. haha.

IMG 9114

i decided a nap was in order… so at 6 PM i laid down with the pups and passed out. i NEVER take naps, in fact i don’t remember the last time i took one! i feel like they make me more tired. but today, there was no choice but to sleep. i couldn’t keep my peepers open. about an hour and a half later i woke up and stayed in bed for awhile more, hanging out with pen. she’s the ultimate cuddlier!

IMG 9127

i finally got my butt out of bed (mainly because i had to pee) and decided to go to target. i needed shampoo, conditioner, make up removal wipes, yadda yadda yadda. i had a sobe life water en route. fuji apple pear is my fave!

IMG 9129

by the time i got done at target it was 9 o’clock and i didn’t feel like making dinner (we were going to have spaghetti with sausage.) instead, i grabbed marshall a burger and fries from nielsen’s frozen custard and called it good. i ate some of his fries before throwing together a super random meal for myself. i wasn’t very hungry for some reason (probably because i was hibernating all evening) so i had a simple snack.

IMG 9133IMG 9134

four ounces of herbed turkey breast, hot and sweet mustard, and my brother’s homemade spicy sweet pickles. no, promise i am not pregnant. it just sounded good! my brother makes these pickles and throws in jalepenos for a kick.. they’re soooo good! i also had a cranberry bran muffin. i know, so random.

now i am typing this up and it’s 10 o’clock. i will probably have some cereal or a popsicle before heading BACK to bed. i have to go into work early tomorrow so i should probably hit the hay.

soooo, that was my whole day! pretty lazy (i only had 2000 steps according to my fitbit) and very sleepy. but that’s life! i had fun staying out last night and although i paid for it today, i am happy i had a good time. the gym will always be there tomorrow, right? right.

Apples are definitely my favorite! Fujis and Honeycrisps.

I love naps and want to take one everyday.

None of my clothes from high school fit, which is a good thing!

Jan @ Sprouts n Squats June 12, 2013 at 3:35 am

I was very overweight in high school so no thankgoodness I definitely don’t wear clothes from then!

I used to have an afternoon nap every saturday but now I’m sleeping much better during the week I don’t have them as often anymore.

I love mangoes, bananas and pink lady apples and I’ve just discovered persimmons.

That muffin looked yummy!

Sarah @ Licorice & Olives June 12, 2013 at 4:12 am

I am glad I am not the only one who needs to finish a meal with something sweet – a warm cup of team is my standard coming into winter down here in Australia!

Lee June 12, 2013 at 6:13 am

I love napping. I used to have my own office (at a previous job) and I would keep a little pillow in my desk and close my door and take a nap during my lunch break. I miss those days.

Angie @ Pint of Goals June 12, 2013 at 6:51 am

I’m happy you and coffee have reunited :) What brand of beans do you use? If you are ever in the Portland or NYC area, you must try Stumptown – incredible!
Okay, your questions:
1. Mango and pineapple (probably the fruits with the highest sugar content)
2) I have random “scrubby” tshirts from high school that I wear to bed
3) I do take naps but not that often – I did take one Friday afternoon after my last day of school (I teach high school English) for the year

Sam @ Better With Sprinkles June 12, 2013 at 7:09 am

My high school clothes fortunately do not fit any more…I was erring on overweight in high school, so I’m not disappointed about that.
Favourite fruit: bananas and blueberries!

Erica June 12, 2013 at 7:31 am

oh no! Hope you got more sleep last night. I’m so excited about summer fruits. Our peaches (SCs) just started rolling out and they’re amazing. The watermelon? I can’t stop eating it!!!

1. what’s your favorite fruit? oh gosh….for a daily eat- apples. Special occasion………..all of them :)

2. do you still wear any of your clothes from high school? Sadly, yes ;)

3. do you take naps? I should take more than I do

Maren June 12, 2013 at 8:03 am

I seriously think I had a day just like yours yesterday. Except I did work out in the morning…only because I had to teach cycling! I dominated a ton of watermelon after work and then laid on the couch and passed out. I also cannot remember the last time I napped! I could not stay away though. I slept for like 15 minutes. Oh and yes, I definitely still have clothes from high school. I’ve got some bermudas from American Eagle that I wore for Senior pics and I still wear them regularly!

LG June 12, 2013 at 8:15 am

I still have (and wear once in a while) a few t-shirts and a skirt I bought in high school…eep! (I’m 32!)

the delicate place (@misathemeb) June 12, 2013 at 8:15 am

yeah i was a total slug yesterday haha, don’t regret it one bit! favorite fruit =blueberries. i’m not a napper unless it’s what i refer to as a ‘desperate’ situation. i didn’t even nap in college—it usually made me feel groggier if that makes any sense? and as for old clothing, i’m usually really good about purging/donating but i do have 1 dress from 2001 that looks like this but in brown and in midi length (when tommy hilfiger was cool in the northeast lol) http://images.tommy.com/is/image/tommy/original/productlisting_04_1M87625672_017_OB_FNT

I’d say strawberries are my favorite but bananas are sneaking up that chart.

If I lost a good 25 lbs I could fit into high school clothes. I had to wear a uniform so I tossed that outfit the last day of school. I do have a way to big for me sweatshirt from being on the tennis team though.

As for naps, I actually got tested to see why I fall asleep all the time. Nothing was wrong but I have no problem with naps or falling asleep. Going to the gym helped rememdy this issue a bit.

Corrie Anne June 12, 2013 at 10:37 am

I don’t have any from high school — but some from college. I’ve moved several times with only two suitcases so it has to be really special to make that cut!! I don’t nap because it makes me cranky — I just never want to get up! I usually can’t fall asleep anyways.

Julie @ RDelicious Kitchen June 12, 2013 at 10:57 am

Some days I just need a nap and it feels so good and needed to power through the rest of the day .. no shame in naptime haha

Erika June 12, 2013 at 11:41 am

I think sometimes we just need some extra sleep in the day :)

My favorite fruit is strawberries, mmm! They have been SO perfect at the market lately- sweet. I love the late spring and summer for food. I always get so sad when it gets cold and my favorite fruits are no more :(

No clothes from HS. I have lost 50 pounds since I was there, so my clothes wouldn’t fit ;)

And the last time I took a nap was when I had pneumonia last year and couldn’t keep my eyes open. I take maybe one nap a year, if that? I also find they make me more tired. And I feel like I miss my day!

natalie@thesweetslife June 12, 2013 at 11:46 am

fuji pear is my favorite sobe water too :)

kristen @ livinlifeinlouie June 12, 2013 at 12:56 pm

I think I still have clothes from highschool, but I’m positive I don’t fit in them anymore haha
naps are amazing! I love them during the spring with the windows open.

nicole June 12, 2013 at 1:35 pm

sometimes sleep is even more beneficial than exercising :) yum, i want some jalepeno-spiced pickles!

Nicole @ FruitnFitness June 12, 2013 at 3:32 pm

I love naps! I don’t nap very often but when I do they always feel wonderful. I think my favorite fruits depend on the season. I love honeycrisp apples in the fall, then in the spring i’m all about berries, cherries and melon.

BroccoliHut June 12, 2013 at 6:50 pm

Your breakfast sounds SO good. Mostly because I just really love eggs + toast.
My favorite fruits are bananas and berries. I eat them both EVERY day.
I actually just cleaned out my closet today, and there were definitely some clothes in there from my high school years. Mine definitely don’t fit anymore!
I am totally NOT a napper. My roommate in college was all about naps, but I never could get in the habit. I just like to sleep a really long time at night :)

purelytwins June 12, 2013 at 7:05 pm

favorite fruit – FIGS!! can’t wait until they are in season :)
and yes we still have a pair of jeans from high school – still fit well kinda, they are a little short and have a few holes in them, but love them haha

Sarah June 12, 2013 at 8:41 pm

My bedtime snack was 40 grams of dark chocolate + 2 cups of frozen grapes (this is a PROBLEM…these foods are my weaknesses :) ). I kind of am all about fruit lately but I suspect it is messing with my body. :(
But grapes, mango (so sweet, I can eat 2 in one sitting), frozen whole bananas, cherries.

I’m considering a 2-day juice fast. Can’t afford a 3-day and wanted something a teeny bit longer than 1 day. Thoughts ? I know its “all sugar” but I need a break. I am constipated though (and those juice things can only mean decreased output so more “not going” in the bathroom) BUT I can’t help but wonder if it would help (?). My other hitch is that my body is low in sodium (according to blood tests) so I wonder if that could throw off my electrolytes in a not-good way. But I’m so so tempted. I NEED a break…something to free me from my emotional eating (i.e re-read the first sentence of this comment.)

Janetha June 12, 2013 at 8:49 pm

I think a 2 day one would be a great idea! Seriously it made me poop.

Sarah June 13, 2013 at 7:49 pm

Awesome! It made you poop? Like I’m DRY as a bone ….nothing is coming out except for occasisonal “splurts OR teeny little nuggets (haha, awesome image right?) and its never “all” out…like I eliminate nothing or maybe 1/10th of what’s in there.

I’ve heard of colonics but they scare me (I hate invasion and the expense + I’m on lower end weight so I worry bout something going wrong).

I think I’ll try out the 2-day. Its 6 drinks (I think about 1000-1300 cals total) and the lady said I could pay extra for a 7th bottle of a beet juice based one if I really worried I’d be lost, but I’ll see. Yeah, I’d do all 3 days but not really feeling the extra MONEY. So maybe start with a 2-day and maybe way in the future I will make it another occasion (or not).

I’m considering doing the Conscious Cleanse too but have reservations about that, so I’m not sure.

I kind of like the idea of a cleanse simply to:
a) CLEAN me out or something, god willing something to occur,
b) change my habits (I’m a creature of routine and stuck on same foods and times and rigidity)
c) try to find an emotional freedom from food maybe (not sure if its possible, but some find it) because I struggle with binging/emotional eating.

You eat awesome Janetha. Wish they sold the hormone-free deli style meats here where I live. You work out a LOT though. I’m like negative negative beginner, no joke, so I don’t even know what to do!

Anyway, cheerio :)

Janetha June 13, 2013 at 9:33 pm

Oh, girl, i work out less than you think. My workout yesterday was 11 minutes and today was 20 minutes. Tuesday I didn’t workout at all and monday was 30 minutes haha. I hate working out LOTS. I like little bits.

YES sounds like a juice 2 day cleanse would be good for you. I have the conscious cleanse but haven’t had time to read it yet! I need to.

I had a colonic once. It was awesome because it cleaned me out, but yeah.. pricey!

xo

Sarah June 20, 2013 at 6:30 am

Hey again Janetha, so I can’t get the colonic – too pricey :( I don’t anyway..
Anyway, I’m feeling REALLY badly about myself…my cleanse starts on Friday, so I was supposed to follow a specific meal plan for the 3 days prior to the cleanse (which I vowed I would do because I’ve been a BAD eater – I’m very emotional/bingy very late at night – well the last 2 days, I “binged” again very late at night (I’m talking like 1000 calories on top of a days worth of cals including a ton of sugars and carbs)…so today is just JUST ONE day BEFORE the cleanse and I didn’t do anything “right”.
This makes me feel so badly because really the cleanse is a good opportunity for me to finally straighten out my body and its not just a 2 day thing (my body REALLY needed the 3 day pre-cleanse). I could freeze the juices, but a part of me says no, just screw it, do the best I can today and start the cleanse on Friday (tomorrow ) anyway.
Thoughts? I feel so badly, everyone told me to eat the pre-cleanse diet…I’m wasting my money and hurting my body.
Please tell me its okay :) that I haven’t wasted my money and time and …body.

Feeling major down right now.

Janetha June 20, 2013 at 10:15 am

oh, girl, i am sorry you are feeling so bad about yourself! stop it! knock it off! there is no need to be perfect–you are putting unnecessary pressure on yourself! just go forward with the cleanse and do the best you can. baby steps! i didn’t do any pre- or post- stuff when i did it. there is benefit in doing the cleanse alone so don’t beat yourself up. do you know why you are bingeing? is it an emotional thing or are you depriving yourself of calories throughout the day and then end up eating a lot at night? have you talked to a professional? you really should seek someone out to talk to and work through it! you can kick this!

sarah June 20, 2013 at 1:08 pm

Wow you are so kind and nice. I promise this is the last message (I’m getting ridiculous)…I have no car so seeing a counsellor is logistically difficult….another blogger told me about this online place “pretty padded room” but I’m not sure if its worth the cost…hard to know!!!
I’m not sure…I only walk each day and take in 1200-1600 cals but the bingnig is also EMOTIONAL (bigtime) and also maybe a rebellion from my former “clean clean clean” days (roll eyes here).
But the problem is my stupid bowels. I’m terried of seeing another GI doctor..ugh.
I feel nervous about the cleanse also because my sodium and weight ARE low. And I read so much about how its all sugar and that’s no good, etc…BUT I still can’t help but feel I need a “reset”.
I didn’t follow their one-day precleanse meal plan either…ugh…already I’ve had protein powder twice and avocado (no-no’s the day before) and for dinner they say to have fish, but I’ve eaten fish the last 3 days, so I might just have eggs (which is also a definite no-no), and likely add more nuts to their fruit only bedtime snack. the thing is that I’m not hungry for the eggs or the nuts or the add-ins, but I do it anyway (routine, habit, fear of “hunger” , etc maybe?).
I’m kind of tempted to freeze the juices and do just one day…but I might trooper it out. Even if it is not the best idea since I’m underweight, maybe it won’t cause any harm since its only 2 days? I’m HOPING so anyway! I just hope it doesn’t “plug” and constipated me more since I’m not doing a colonic with it. I’m constipated in body …and mind :)

Annette@FitnessPerks June 17, 2013 at 1:32 pm

I love those sours toooooo!
