I wish I had a picture of my outfit from St. Patty’s Day. Think knee high green & black striped socks, skirt, green shirt, green eyeshadow, and a very classy headband which I threw away last night on my walk home (hey – it was annoying. And I was trying to walk and eat a slice of pizza at the same time).
I wish I was young and my stomach could handle alcohol (says the 23 year old). I have lots of acid reflux/stomach/heart burn problems (I wouldn’t be surprised if I have an ulcer of some sort). And lately alcohol has done quite the number on my stomach the next day. I mean awful awful hangover. The type of hangover you’d expect to get if you had one of The Hangover type of nights. Except I didn’t.
I wish I remembered to take pictures of all my eats yesterday. I started the day out intending to.
My morning started at 5:20 am with coffee. Yummmmmm.
And then a class at the gym I’ve been enjoying recently. It’s called “Power” and it consists of a complete full body strength workout. I like it because it uses the bar (which I wouldn’t use on my own). And specific body parts at targeted each song (biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, squats, lunges, abs, etc).
I dislike it because I still feel like I need more upper body strength work afterwards. About half is devoted to lower body work as well, which I don’t necessarily want to do every class. Especially because of my foot/ankle pain.
Then came home for some cottage cheese + pumpkin + cinnamon action. With strawberry jam.
Another cottage cheese container down. I’m obsessed. (Remember this is Costco sized. AKA 11 servings of the goodness in there. Massive)
Very photogenic snack at work – a small bit of Fage. I seem to enjoy eating out of containers.
And coffee + a biscuit. A baby teething biscuit to be exact. But they are DELICIOUS. (Not gonna lie)
I wish I had more time to make a better looking lunch. But in reality, I had 15 minutes.
Veggie patty topped with Laughing Cow cheese & Trader Joe’s awesome sweet & spicy mustard.
And some Hot & Sour soup from Costco. Really good soup that I could eat the whole container of. Except each serving has like 30-40% of the DV sodium. I don’t really care about my sodium at all, but it is SALTY.
Yummy chunks. But they do kind of gross me out in a way. Reminds me of squid?
And then the picture taking went downhill….I tried!
I wish I could say I love Panera. But every time I go there I end up somewhat disappointed.
I got the BBQ Chicken Salad and Pesto Vegetable Soup (although I tasted nor saw no pesto??). They gave me a spoon and knife (why knife?), but no fork!
I’m not a butter fan at all, but was really craving it on my bread today. The baguette was definitely the best part of the meal.
I wish my ankle was back to normal. It’s so frustrating Hopefully physical therapy performs wonders since everything else seems to be making it worse.
Attractive taping to help my arch.
Nice close-up of my slightly hairy and goose bumpy legs. Post-going out next morning messy room in the background. Classy.
What did you do to celebrate St. Patrick’s day? Anything? Green food? Green costumes? Green beer?
I had my first green beer last night!
What are your favorites to get at Panera?
I do like the Fuji Apple salad. The Thai salad was kind of sparse last time. And their sandwiches I’ve gotten have been kind of sparse too (many more better delis around here). Recommendations for something spectacular??
