Hello all! I’m trying to stay positive and productive this morning, but news of my family dog’s passing has put me in a funk. As a result, my eating was a little off. I tried to just eat what I was craving….
For a mid-morning snack, I had some baked tofu.
And I ate the other half of my Pure Protein bar. Still meh.
I am normally super hungry for lunch around 11:30, but my tummy felt nervous and off all morning. I made a delicious-appearing lunch, although I couldn’t really appreciate the flavors.
I used the grilled chicken leftover from my salad last night and made a stir fry with: 3/4 cup brown rice, zucchini, red peppers, and bella mushrooms.
I normally would’ve inhaled this veggie-rich, healthy lunch, but I ended up just picking at it…. I only ate about half. You know there is something wrong with me when I don’t finish my food! I knew my 1/2 portion wasn’t enough fuel for lunch, so I also tossed back half a handful of almonds.
I’m saving the rest for Future Husband to eat later. It’s nice to have a human garbage disposal in the house. 🙂
Clearly, I need to get out of the house and out of my funk. We’re going to Miami for the weekend to see my friend from middle school, Lisette, and her husband, Danny.
Lisette was my college roomie, and I love her so much! I was Lisette’s maid of honor last year at her wedding, and she’s now my matron of honor! We’re going to buy her bridesmaid dress this weekend. Here’s my mom, Lisette, and me at her wedding last summer. Wasn’t she a beautiful bride?
I’ll be blogging over the weekend, but posting may be sporatic/once a day until I return on Sunday evening. Except loads of food, beer, and shenanigans. I’m going to try to squeeze in a run tomorrow morning before the rest of the gang wakes up!
How do you stay healthy on vacations? I try to maintain my running schedule and choose to indulge only at certain meals, like fancy dinners out, while keeping breakfasts normal.
