Interesting article regarding ways to destress during the holiday season…
I had a Z-bar at 10 this morning. Am I getting too predictable? Feels that way. On days I exercise in the morning I feel like my metabolism is on gogogoooo! all day long and I tend to be hungrier. Side note: My ankle is killing me. It didn’t hurt during my run, but on the ride home it started to throb, and now it is even worse. Coping with an injury is really hard on the mental state some days. Anyhoozles.
I think Thursdays are the best day of the week. There is so much to look forward to! Friday (and time with PB) is right around the corner, the work week is almost done, and there is still a whole weekend to be excited about! Countdown until PB makes it to Rhodey… About 24-27 hours?!?!
Lunch was amazing. Yesterday I filleted the chicken breast into two 3 oz (measured when cooked) pieces. I just cooked them side by side in the nonstick pan, and wrapped one up for today. I had that along with a whole wheat english muffin, both of which were topped with 1/2 oz total of american cheese. On the side I had some baby carrots and a small salad with a squeeze of just lemon juice on it.
An interesting note… I hitched a ride with a friend down to Philly a few weeks ago when the weather was bad, and in that 6 hour ride she didn’t eat a bite or drink anything besides a small coffee. I, on the other hand, had my morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack during that ride. I was so hungry! I never would have made it for 6 hours without eating. I was almost embarrassed about it because I realized that my body has become dependent on being fueled by little meals every few hours. When I have to make it from 2 pm to 7 pm every day I always wish I hadn’t had my snack yet. Are any of you that way too?
