Eeeeek—–you caught me—-I’m so NOT at school right now.
But not because I don’t want to be! All day I have felt so exhausted, worn out and blah. I started to get one of my “exhaustion headaches” and just knew that if I pushed myself one more night, I would probably get sick. I’m the type of person that when I get worn down, I instantly get sick—thus the nasty cold over my vacation a couple weeks ago. I know when to push my body and know when to rest and tonight I just knew that I needed to get some rest.
So here’s my “rest” food:
At work today I treated myself to a homemade almond joy bar. The pastry chef at work makes these and they are f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s! Basically a mixture of coconut and almonds, dipped in dark chocolate and frozen. This was the perfect after lunch dessert.
I did eat my yogurt today for a snack but I added a little honey I found at the restaurant to sweeten it up a bit and also had half of a small pita that was leftover from the Lebanese take-out that the managers ordered for lunch. Sorry, no picture!
For dinner I made my favorite “I’m exhausted and in my sweatpants from freshman year” dinner: poached eggs. I used my handy dandy poached egg maker to make two perfect eggies, which I placed a top a toasted and earth balance buttered Ezekiel english muffin. I had a small side salad with lettuce, half a tomato and a crumble of goat cheese with balsamic vinegar on the side as well as a glass of red wine.
For dessert I had a 100 calorie kettle corn popcorn pack.
I’m about to take a bubble bath and start my new book
I’m sure there are some people that have read this already on here. What did you think? I’ve had it forever but am just now getting to it. I like his ideas and this seems similar to one of my very favorite books, “Eat, Drink and Be Healthy”.
An early goodnight!
