Good morning everyone!
Sorry for my wacky posting times lately – I’ve had quite a bit to do.
Yesterday started bright and early – 4:45Am. Fun. Does anyone actually like early morning shifts at work?
I’ve never been much of a morning person, so these shifts are a real pain. For breakfast, I had oats (yet again), but this time with EXTRA peanut butter… gosh knows I needed it:
Bad lighting, I know.. but it was still dark out so.. no natural light!
I wish I could have enjoyed my oats more, but I had to get to work. My shift ended at 10Am then I had a nice chunk of cheese, and went to the gym for a short while.
I did 25 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes of weights and stretching. The moment I got home I knew it was going to be a binge day. Why? Well, with my eating lately (which I think has been pretty healthy compared to my normal stuff), I have learned to be able to tell when my body is hungry, full, or just plain anxious. Because of my lack of sleep, I felt off all day so that’s what triggered it.
risotto and SUPER creamy spinach. Not healthy by any means
Salmon on crackers with mayo - YUM!
Lots, and lots of maple butter ice cream with various toppings
No seriously. I ate over 25oz. of ice cream and a couple cups of toppings ya'll!
The binge from 1:30 – 3:30 included all that (obviously not all the ice cream was pictured), then my hunny and I made pork potstickers with soy sauce. Yum yum yum.
We finished off the ice cream, relaxed for a bit, and then went out later in the evening to get this:
Mondo chicken burrito w/ sour cream& cheese + rice & refried beans. Look up that horrible nutrition info!
I also had a couple bites of his pizza, but I was mainly focused on my oat fudge bar from Starbucks. Almost 500 cals, but sooo worth it.
The weird thing was.. this wasn’t a normal binge for me. Sure, I easily ate over 4000 calories, but this time, something felt weird. The main part of my binge (1:30 – 3:30 when the pictures were taken) I ate a lot, but yet I didn’t feel TOO full. Usually when I binge, I eat to the point of PAIN. Not this time though.
I don’t understand it, considering I know I ate more than my tummy needed. I managed to stop myself before the pain without even thinking about it.
After the burrito, though, I definately felt some pain, haha. Surprisingly, the oat fudge bar helped? Miracle cure for tummy aches? I think so! ;)
So that, my dear friends, was my day. Nothing too interesting, and it’s still confusing the heck outta me.
Maybe I’m slowly starting to get over my binging?
As for the title of this post, all morning I’ve been trying to register for a couple summer classes, but since we paid my deposit late, I wasn’t able to. So, I called my school and THANKFULLY they helped me out. apparently I owed a cent from last term? Lol.
The best part of it all is that I was able to get the LAST spot in one of the classes I wanted, woo!
QUESTION: What are you looking forward to this week? Personally.. nothing. At least not when it comes to school. have a lot to do thanks to my procrastination all weekend, ha.
