Hi All! Before diving into my day, let me show you my breakfast and lunch, which I think were pretty good for a plain ‘ol Tuesday.
Before leaving for work, I made myself a three egg white omelette with diced avocado, arugula, one triangle of Laughing Cow Cheese and a little ketchup on top! On the side, I enjoyed some delicious blackberries. I can’t seem to get enough blackberries this Spring. I’d say this breakfast was a total of 260 calories including my large iced coffee.
Lunch was super easy, as it was a pre-made Vegetarian Salad Sandwich from the local health food store in my town.
I really love these pre-made sandwiches. They are pretty calorie-friendly, yet keep me full for at least three hours. I know that it seems like a huge sandwich, but if you look closer, there is a humungo piece of iceberg lettuce in there to make it seem bulkier. Tricky, tricky 😉 I believe this sandwich is a total of 220 calories. Throughout the day (literally before breakfast and after lunch) I grazed on pecans and almonds.
Okay so down to the good stuff. Or not so good stuff. Today I was definitely not on my A-game. I knew it from the moment I woke up. I was literally hot and bothered about everything. I awoke bright and early and was able to get in a fifty minute workout, which was great, but the gym was so dang HOT! Usually I’ve been pretty positive about the heat level in the gym by thinking ‘hey, whatever, you’re sweating more which is good! Sweat = good!’. But today, nada. I just wanted some AC!! So off I went to take a cold shower before going to work.
I think it may be that it’s been a year since I have graduated (congrats to all of my friends who graduated from FIT today!!) but I have just felt off the past week or so. I’ve really been thinking about where I am in my life vs. where I thought I would be. I guess I am having a sort of internal conflict? While everything is great right now, I can’t seem to just stop thinking. Whether it’s about friends, living at home, working out, whatever, I think my brain is on over-drive, yet not. I feel somewhere in the middle and can’t figure it out.
For the most part, I’m pretty happy with the person I am becoming and feel like my life is truly amazing. But I think what I’m trying to say is that I feel like I’m waiting for something. I can’t exactly pin point it, but in my heart of hearts I feel like something is ‘off’ or just not 100% all there. The person who probably knows me best, my mom, immediately felt my unease and suggested I workout or take a walk. My first response was, ‘no I have a lot to do mom, you just don’t get it!’. But then, about five minutes later, I stopped acting like a twelve year old and realized that maybe she does get it, and maybe I do just need to go for a walk, or do a mini workout. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
It’s not easy to pin point where I’m coming from, and I’m sorry for rambling, but I’m being totally honest on my blog and I totally had an off day! Let’s just say I can’t wait to be in Cape Cod this weekend!
Question of the Night: Have you experienced some ‘off’ days? How do you deal with them?
