Tired…so so tired. The last few days have been interesting. For one thing, I didn’t know I could make it 4 days on 3-6 hrs of sleep each night and still be kinda functional. Although, I wasn’t able to work out (not good to stress your body if you didn’t get enough sleep by working out). My diet was really good….up until yesterday. I ate a LOT of food yesterday and today because I was so exhausted. But the food I did eat was healthier food. I didn’t have any junk. (Also, it didn’t help that I was up at 4 AM and going until 11 PM).
You’ll notice (down below) I made Hungry Herbivore’s Pumpkin Bread. I changed the recipe a bit. Instead of brown sugar I used Raw Coconut Crystals (works perfectly!) and instead of using Whole Wheat Flour I used Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. Next time I want to experiment using dates and bananas as sweeteners and also add chocolate chips, nuts, etc. It was pretty good though!
What I ate Wednesday:
-Bob’s Red Mill 10-Grain Cereal w/ Strawberries + PB and Green Tea
-Blueberry Muffin Larabar + Orange Spiced Tea w/ Honey
-Quinoa + Corn + Spinach+ 2 heaping Tbsp of refried beans (herbamare and olive oil)
-Apple Turnover Uber Larabar
-Zen Bakery’s Cinnamon Raison Roll
-Which Wich sandwich: bean pattie, veggies, and hummus on wheat bread
Today, was kinda similar. Still exhausted even though I slept 8-9 hrs last night (first time I’ve slept that long in a week). Woke up feeling just like yesterday.
-Amande Raspberry Yogurt w/ Ezekiel Cereal
-1/2 PB&J Larabar
-4.5 pices of HH’s Pumpkin Bread
-3/4 bag of Veggie Sticks
-a couple sips of Mother’s Market “Vampire” Veggie Juice
-Endangered Species Milk Chocolate Square
-(and I’m probably going to have some fruit from Yogurtland (with chocolate)
Some things I noticed today:
1- Mother’s Market’s veggie juices ALWAYS get rid of my headaches
2- too many veggie sticks give me stomach aches
3- Lack of Sleep (short-term and long-term)= hungover feeling=healthy eating goes to hell
4- need to start eating more fruits as snacks instead of larabars, etc.
Tomorrow is a new day! I will be back on track eating well and in moderation! I will workout, do yoga, and be positive!
