A Moody Day

Howdy there! How are you doing today? My thoughts and prayers go out to the mass shooting in Las Vegas … how horrific. So much mental health reform is needed in this country (mentally ill criminals will never follow the law and will always be able to gain access to weaponry, so we should not disarm mentally stable, law-abiding citizens, in my personal opinion), but now is not the time to get political – now is the time for healing and much prayer.

I had to get up early for a counseling appointment, but all is well here in the Texas Panhandle. I was a *touch* moody today too, but I dealt with it just fine. Thank the Universe for meds is all I have to say today.

Breakfast – 10:00 a.m.

I had my usual egg white/bacon/sausage mix for breakfast – I tried maple bacon, and it smelled delicious while it was cooking and definitely had a hint of maple flavor! 🙂 The salsa kinda dumped out on the plate, but I was cool with it – I love me some salsa. Today this breakfast was the perfect size for my tummy.

I felt so pretty for my counseling appointment that I just had to snap a pic! My vest is Anthropologie, my top is Free People, and my pants are JAGs. My trusty James Avery Texas charm and AllBirds completed the outfit. No lipstick on yet in the pic, but I wore Jouer in Pamplemousse. I look a little tired here, but I did have to get up earlier than usual, ha!

Lunch – 12:45 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.

I wasn’t in the mood for food around lunchtime, so I had a glass of milk. Weird-sounding, but I need the calcium (thank you, anorexia, for depriving my bones of calcium). I’m going to try drinking a glass everyday.

Around 1, I put some BBQ chicken and sweet potatoes in the oven. Once baked, I placed them on a bed of spaghetti squash with some vodka sauce and Parmesan.

Workout – 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m

Some asshat was working in the apartment next to us with a loud saw, so we elected to quickly go to the gym in hopes that he would be done by the time we got back. We did arms today, and I was extremely glum about it because I was in a low mood suddenly after eating lunch. Yes, I’m ultimately glad that we went, but I was just in a mood. BUT I DID IT, and that’s what counts.

My back is looking a ton better. We came home, and I had a much needed coffee, which seemed to perk up my mood a bit … until that asshole next door started sawing again! GAAAH! I had to go for a drive to get away from the noise. I’m highly sensitive to noise, and loud noises like that send me over the roof.

Snack – 4:20 p.m.

After calling Luke and hearing the report that the jackass wasn’t sawing anymore, I returned home and wanted something with protein but something creamy and sweet, so I opted for a Siggi’s Mixed Berry Yogurt with some honey and macadamia nuts.

Let me tell y’all, my stomach was RAGING after this snack for some reason – I wish I hadn’t eaten it! I had to take some Pepto and suffered through some awful cramps. Perhaps it was the macadamia nuts?

The rest of the afternoon was perfect for relaxing. Luke had the day off, so he chilled with Caprica and watched a TV show. 😉

Cocktail Hour – 5:45 p.m.

I sipped on my usual kombucha mocktail in Hibiscus Ginger tonight in an attempt to calm my upset tummy.

I broke my dinner into several parts tonight for some reason just because I was more “snacky” than hungry.

Dinner #1 – 6:25 p.m.

I roasted some carrots and broccoli and ate them in a tub of hummus. Easy peasy. Roasted carrots are my jam, y’all.

Dinner #2 – 7:00 p.m.

Luke and I split another Copper River Salmon fillet, except this time my side didn’t have Gary’s Secret Sauce on it (just too rich for my tummy). Mine was simply seasoned with S+P. My piece looks teeny in the picture, but it was a pretty good size my protein.

Luke shared his fish with Caprica ….

I may or may not have a banana or an apple with peanut butter later (depending on how late I stay up), but I’m not going to fret over posting it.

Here’s to a BRIGHTER tomorrow, my friends. XOXOXO
