Catching Up

I feel like I’m catching up on so many things now that my crazy week is over. Like emails, blog reading, and sleep! Boy, was I exhausted today. It’s always so fascinating how you can go on minimal sleep when you really have to, and as soon as that time is over, you just crash like you haven’t slept in years. That is how I felt all day today.

I managed to get up this morning and myself a nice breakfast though, because I knew I had a long day ahead.

  • 1/2 cup oats, milk, water
  • frozen blackberries
  • splash of vanilla
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • slivered almonds

We were out of juice this morning! NOOOO! I made some vanilla black tea with a splash of almond milk.

I even brew up some tea to take to school with me. It was just one of those days – cold, dark, rainy. Plus I wanted that little caffeine to keep me going.

Biochem was interesting today – our prof was dressed up like Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. It was pretty funny. Of course, I didn’t clue in that hey, he’s probably doing that for Hallowe’en until this afternoon. Yes, I was that tired.

Even though all I wanted to do was go home and sleep, I had a job to do, so I bussed/trained over to my sister’s workplace and spent the rest of my day doing inventory in their warehouse. They brought in pizza for lunch, so I had a couple slices (something with veggies, and something with chicken, mushrooms, and peppers). I may have dug into the Hallowe’en candy stash a couple times while I was there as well πŸ˜‰

Once home, I tried to keep my eyes open for awhile, but finally gave in, and had a 3 hour long nap. I totally missed dinner with my family, and missed most of the hockey game (we lost, so not the end of the world). And I missed out on hitting up the gym like I wanted to. Obviously though, if I was that tired, the gym wouldn’t have been a good idea anyways.

I did throw together a little something to eat. I’ll admit it – my food choices weren’t spectacular today, but that’s life. No reason to get worked up over it, right?

Deli sandwich – kasier roll, ham, turkey, havarti cheese, mustard, dill dip. Plain potato chips on the side.

I considered adding lettuce, but just wasn’t feeling it. No point in eating something if it’s not going to be enjoyable.

I figured I should attempt to ingest a little more plant material today, so I heated up a chopped red pear to make a faux pear crisp.

  • chopped red pear
  • craisins
  • cinnamon
  • brown sugar
  • granola
  • pecans

It was a very juicy pear, so it almost became more of a soup than a crisp. Still delicious though πŸ™‚

Later on again, I gave in and had some chocolate. Damn brownie cupcakes, why you gotta be so tasty?

Like the festive jack-o-lantern in the background? I’m not sure who carved it – either my mom or sister.

And speaking of Hallowe’en – I got a little card in the mail from Miss Gliding Calm!

I love it! I think it’s the first Hallowe’en greeting I’ve ever gotten. Thanks girl!

This blogger needs to hit the sack – I’m back at work tomorrow bright and early, for more fun inventory. I hear we get Chinese food for lunch, and you all know how much I love that. Night!
