Or the post also known as: “I completely passed out on Saturday night before posting and had to combine 2 days worth of eats.” DUN DUN DUN!!! It’s on! Which long day of eats is more delicious?
But first, I have to say…I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I seriously can’t stop eating!Friday night I just wanted to eat eat eat! Definitely wasn’t hungry – but I sure was munchy! I just went with the flow and knew my body was craving something. Obviously, if I let myself eat every single time I want to – I would balloon (I could eat almost all the time). But with recently upping my mileage, and perhaps exhaustion from work – I know my body needs fuel. I’ve even been waking up in the middle of the night hungry!
I can’t fall asleep when I’m hungry. Ever. No matter what.
Now onto the battle.
I was starving when I awoke at 5:00 am! Scratched out my original plan for a small breakfast! And went with a yogurt mess instead.
- Plain yogurt mixed with cinnamon
- Honeydew (so so so so juicy & sweet!!)
- Kashi Golean
- Strawberry jam (RIP. I need a jam detox)
- Scoops of nut butter
- Drizzle of maple syrup
Mmmm maple syrup.
All mixed up!
My 8:45 am breakfast went unpictured since the lighting in the caff is awful at that time. But it looked the same as this one:
Cottage cheese + canteloupe and oats + eggs.
Unlike Saturday, I was completely not hungry Sunday morning. My breakfast was still yogurt & cereal, but on a much smaller level.
And my 8:45 am breakfast snack of cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, and the iced top of a bran/carrot/ginger(?) muffin.
Lunch was small, yet rich. Mushroom bisque soup (SOUPer creamy. ha) along with vegetable ratatouille.
I only managed half the soup before calling it a day.
Orange glazed chicken, broccoli with garlic butter sauce, and turkey meat sauce which I topped the broccoli with. And also ate a bunch on the side. Kind of like soup.
And a small side salad with blue cheese, olives, & craisins.
English muffin around 2:30.
Along with a fatty slice of watermelon.
And canned green beans + pasta sauce + parm cheese at around 4:45.
I’m a big fan of canned green beans lately. And pasta sauce. Win win!
And an Asian pear I got from Farmers ($1/lb!! Deal).
My temporary new roommate also brought apple strudel and said to help myself. She asked for it!!
I picked at a whole piece throughout the afternoon.
I came home, ate a giant slice of watermelon like looked exactly like Saturday’s (scroll up, or just here’s a reminder:)
And then CRASHED for a good 1 1/2 hours. I’ve gotten 7 hours of sleep combined in the past 2 nights on top of my 8 hour a day exhausting job. I’m looking forward to sleep tonight!
I awoke to have a pre-run snack of toast with PB & vanilla-pear butter.
And yes more apple strudel.
No more! It looks good, but honestly doesn’t taste that good. Not sweet enough for me 😉
I ended up hitting up Woodstocks for pizza with a couple friends. Normally I wouldn’t spend money, especially since I just bought dinner at Farmer’s this week. But I really really needed to get out of the house and be social.
Since the table ordered pepperoni, I got a personal half “Garlic Bird” and half “BBQ Bird” on wheat. With light cheese. But it was of course still super cheesy 😉 Exactly why I got light cheese – they layer that stuff on!! I totally didn’t expect them to do half & half on a personal, but they did! 😀
I had half of this personal, and 1 slice of a pesto veggie. Funny stury -we still had the old people’s number up from the table before us, and they accidentally re-made their pizza and gave it to us. We told them, but they couldn’t take it back. And we were left with a free half meat lovers-half pesto veggie pizza!
Okay, maybe that wasn’t such a funny story. But since the whole table seemed to be scared of veggies, I got free pizza from it.
I was trying to save room for the delicious cinnabread, which my friend got to go, but we never broke into 😦 Ahh well.
We then continued to redbox, where they decided to rent Wolfman. Which I think I slept through half of, thank goodness. It was beyond awful. And I swear, the graphics were from the 80s. I half expected Michael Jackson to jump out and rock his Thriller dance any second. My friends also convinced me to have a glass of wine, which I think aided in the sleep. Okay, not much convincing was involved.
Leftover pizza!! 1 BBQ & 1 garlic slice (which I took a bite out of to taste it cold) toasted in the toaster oven.
I’ve never toasted up leftover pizza before, but it was A-MAZING. Seriously, better than last night. Slightly crispy, warm, and still ooey gooey!
Plus a veggie pesto piece eaten cold while the other two were toasting up.
So in short story, the exact same dinner I had last night.
I could’ve had a glass of wine to make the nights even, but opted for hot chocolate instead.
My days were similar, my days were different. But which day’s eats look better to you? Even though they are super similar. Not gonna lie.
PS: Run was awesome 🙂 My Garmin never located satellites, so I just ran for time.
Est. Distance: 5.25-5.5 miles
And I ran the ENTIRE time. I’m so happy to be back and running normally again. I thank my lucky stars everyday 😀
