This is a test
I'm pretty sure the universe is trying to see how much further it can push me before I break. I thought I broke already but nope. It just keeps on a raining poo. I think I've just made a decision about taking a break in the Fall. If I don't have something to look forward to, I'm going to seriously just shut down in every way. Side note to self: don't answer the phone...nothing good is rarely on the other end.
The only solace I can take as I wade my way through the current swamp that is my life is that the old me would've friggin' attacked that bar of chocolate we use for trail mix, ordered a pizza, skipped our workout and called it a night.
Instead, I ate like a person not interested in saying "screw it, there's always tomorrow."
Breakfast was a light English muffin, natural peanut butter with 1 tbsp of apple jelly, 4 oz of low sodium cottage cheese, a small banana with 1/2 tbsp nutella and green tea.
Lunch was a tuna fish sandwich with spinach along with the usual freggies and iced tea.
Dinner was lemon pepper pasta with light alfredo sauce and 4 oz of shrimp and tea.
We had two leftover apples from last week so I peeled them and put them in two 6 oz ramekins I bought over the weekend for apple crisp, made an oatmeal crumble with 1 tbsp of light butter each and made that for a snack later. It wasn't like a piece of apple pie (at least not the kind I like) but it was a comforting dessert without breaking the calorie bank.
Our workout was 300 calories burned with TRX. It was our first strength in over a week so it whipped us pretty good.
These days, I'm taking whatever victories I can scrounge.
When life is a giant swirlie, do you stick with your routine or say "screw it, there's always tomorrow"?
