WIAW-An “Off” DayPosted: April 25, 2012
wow its already Wednesday?! this week is one big haze for me
1. Its Greek Week..which basically means mixers every night=no sleep
2. AIRBAND IS ON FRIDAY!..in case your wondering what Airband is..its a HUGE dance competition that all of greek life participates in so on top of going out last night to a mixer, I was up at 7am for Airband practice
3. I NEED SLEEP
Next week will be sleep catch up time..
anywho onto another WIAW!
now I guess my day of eating yesterday really started at around 12:30am when I got home
and then proceeded to eat about half a container of sabra hummus and half a bag of terra sweet potato chips..not in a sober state of mind just in case you were wondering
so I woke up this morning feeling LESS than stellar (okay I was hungover) and went to Airband practice from 7-9am
then I came home, and couldn’t handle the thought of eating anything yet
after a couple hours of
wanting to DIE laying on my couch I decided I should probably eat something so a banana and peanut butter it was. It didn’t really taste all that appealing but at least it was something!
since my breakfast was pretty lame-o I got hungry for lunch around 11
turkey wrap with grapes it was!
in my wrap went honey mustard, turkey (obvz), tomato, shredded cheddar cheese, and avocado
I still didn’t feel too great after this, but it tasted better than the banana did thats for sure
I’m not going to lie, I was feeling pretty crappy yesterday and was mad at myself for eating so much when I came home at night. I’ve been really good about not drunk eating recently, so I was mad at myself for doing so
I know it sounds silly, but I’ve been working really hard lately at listening to my body and respecting it (well to a certain extent if you don’t count alcohol lol) and i was mad at myself for mindlessly eating
but I realize that I shouldn’t beat myself up about it and just accept it and move on!
Speaking of food related issues, i’ve been loving how honest Brittany who blogs at Itty Bits of Balance has been in her posts lately about intuitive eating and listening to your body
in this post she talks about facing “fear foods” meaning a food that you deprive yourself of and categorize as “bad” or dangerous to have around
so since i’m testing out my intuitive eating skills and facing “fear foods” as well, I picked up a box of these yesterday
now Annies Cheddar bunnies are one of my favorite things ever! (strange? perhaps..but whatever)..I don’t ever buy them, along with gold fish, cheeze-its, chex mix, etc..because I’m afraid that i’ll eat way more than a serving and then just feel bad about myself for doing so
so to test out my intuitive eating skills i decided to pick up a box! So you bet I had some for a snack! And I am happy to say I kept the serving to about one serving size! boo yah baby
oh and I also picked up one of these
mainly to help with my hangover lol..don’t judge I’m in college okay?!
I had never tried a coconut water before but I’ve heard its a great cure for a hangover..so I tested it out! First sip I thought it tasted NASTY..and then I kept drinking it and it wasn’t that bad
and I think it helped a little bit too! score!
I also snacked on a few pb filled pretzels as well
wow I’m seriously slacking on my veggie intake!
i made it to the gym! even though its the LAST thing I felt up to doing yesterday, i went to an hour Muscle Pump class and I was so happy I went!
oh boy dinner was delicious
I made homemade eggplant parmesan (recipe coming your way soon!) with some pasta and a spinach salad alongside! Yay for me eating some salad!
small and sweet. about 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt, a drizzle of sugar free maple syrup, a few pb cheerios, and a few semi sweet chocolate chips
AH-mazing combo. try it now.
Sorry for a kind of word heavy post! I just felt the need to address how important it is to respect your body, and not be so hard on yourself!
no one is perfect, and healthy living isan’t about a quick fix, and deprivation
its about listening to your body, feeding it well but not depriving it, and most importantly stepping back and just LIVING
Don’t Worry, be Happy:)
i hope everyone has a great day!
