Howdy y’all! How are you doing today?
It snowed and snowed last night – I still can’t believe that it snowed on April 30th – but thankfully it didn’t stick! Here’s a pic of the view outside our apartment. Brr, it’s a cold one out!
I wasn’t terribly hungry for breakfast this morning, but I decided that I needed to eat, so I enjoyed a Chobani Flip in Key Lime Crumble with a medium banana and two giant strawberries. Green Vibrance with OJ (it looks nasty AF but I promise it tastes like orange juice) and Starbucks Mocha Coffee with stevia and coconut milk to drink. I’m glad that I’ve kicking my creamer habit!
I was feeling snacky around 10:45, so I had some celery, red bell pepper, and cucumber with salt and dipped them in Pace salsa and Fiesta Ranch Dressing.
I admit that I had teeny bite of bread pudding with whipped cream before lunch – I was snacky AF and wanted to try it (I didn’t take a pic because I didn’t want the evidence, ha!). It was tasty – here’s the recipe if you’re interested.
For my actual lunch, I had some leftover Mustard Herb Crusted Chicken but I didn’t have enough, so I whipped up a bite of Sriracha Chicken (it’s a blend of honey, Sriracha, S+P, and garlic powder) and roasted it along with a large carrot, a bit of cauliflower, and a small avocado (all seasoned with S+P and garlic powder). Served with BBQ on the side … I like BBQ with chicken, can you tell?
Tonight I was nursing a bad headache, so I simply heated up a mug of beef stew that my Dad gave Luke on Saturday (I’ll have to ask him for the recipe) and a cornbread muffin with butter. A cup of coffee to drink.
I was down to 126.8 lbs this morning, y’all. I’m rather annoyed about this development, but I figure it’s just my body naturally fluctuating. Obviously I’m looking to gain muscle weight, and I wonder if I need to eat more or something like that. I need to be patient with my body, I know, but I’m terrible about being kind to myself – bulimia, anyone? That’s an ultimate impatience if you ask me – you immediately vomit in an effort to rid yourself of evil calories, and it’s utterly uncontrolled and vehement.
I did some home exercises today, but not too much – I did sit ups, arm weights, and a bit of yoga. I just didn’t feel like getting out to the gym in the cold weather and with my pounding head … excuses, excuses, I know …
Today I’m erring on the side of low-ish. My headache isn’t helping my mood, that’s for sure, but I’ll go out on a limb and say that I’m stable.
Calliope was snug as a bug in a rug on my yoga mat – she so fat and fluffy!
Persephone was on the arm of the couch, as per usual. I imagine that my readers don’t always enjoy all of the pictures of my cats, but I love my keedees and they deserve ample screen-time on here. They’re like my children and are my little anxiety-busters, after all!
Caprica was resting by Luke’s backpack … terrible lighting in the pic, but she’s so hard to capture that I went with it – Caprica is bad about looking at the camera because she’s so efficacious and thinks I’m trying to give her pets.
