My appetite has been so weird all day!! I had lunch around 11:30, felt full and then got staaaarving around 1:30 and finally had my snack at 2:00. Well, that yogurt and plank like expanded in my stomach or something because I WAS SO FULL! I wasn’t even hungry for dinner! I think it has to do with stress and not working out today as well……and I had this coffee (formally known as crack because its like triple strength espresso stuff that the chef makes), had a HUGE caffeine high where I was running around the restaurant getting everything done……and then I crashed. That will definitely mess with your appetite!
Of course I ate dinner anyways. I knew once I had in front of me I would want it and I feel a ton better after I ate. Last night I defrosted some of the lean turkey meatballs I made a few weeks ago from Tosca Reno’s cookbook “The Eat Clean Diet”. These defrosted wonderfully in the fridge and when I got home from work, I just baked them for about 20 minutes and they were perfect! I had them atop a bowl of whole wheat pasta with organic pasta sauce. Mmmmm
I also had this salad with balsamic vinegar:
And one of my homemade chocolates for dessert! How good does this look???!!!
Tonight we are starting our practical at 8:30 and it goes until tomorrow night at 10:00. For the practical I have to make and decorate a chocolate box using dark, milk and white chocolates together. I also have a quiz on the history and making of chocolate tonight. For a snack later, I’m bringing one of my favorite nut bars:
I’m desperately hoping to get home before midnight tonight……….I’ve decided to hold off on exercising until Friday though. I don’t want to push my body until it, well, shuts down. I’m about to start a very strenuous training program and I need to be at the top of my game, physically and mentally. I’m taking tomorrow and the next day to just rest and recover and then will be starting up on Friday (and I’m finallyyyy getting new running shoes on Saturday!!!). I think my body needs some rest!
Dexter found a new home in the boxes I brought home from the restaurant to start packing up my stuff in…..
I already want to cry when I think about leaving him next month!!!!! I’m going to sob my eyes out for sure….
