What a poopy miserable rainy day outside…and it matches my mood 🙁 Sorry guys! It took me double the time to drive back to Orlando because it was pouring so hard and then I had to make like 5 trips up and down the stairs of my apartment in the rain to carry all my stuff up…getting soaked in the process, obviously. THEN, when I got upstairs I got some sad news. Due to some uncontrollable circumstances, my roommate has to move home tomorrow. I know. I was and still am completely shocked and she’s pretty upset too. I mean, I know we will see each other even though she won’t live here anymore (she’s moving 4 hours away) because we have been best friends for about 15 years……but still. Now I’m totally on my own and now no one is here to eat my pastries.
Ok so to end my sob story I will get to my food. My pita pit wrap was very filling but I found myself craving something cold and creamy mid-day (maybe because I’m so sunburned I can’t walk?) so I had a soy pudding. Hit the spot.
When I arrived back in Orlando I made a huge salad for dinner because that’s all I felt like. Honestly, I feel a little bloated and yucky after eating out so much over the past week and drinking alcohol nightly. I’m going to try to make all my meals this week *super* healthy just to cleanse out my system a bit. You might think my salad tonight for dinner looked like a diet meal but I can assure you was not. First of all, it was so huge I couldn’t even finish the whole thing.
In it I put:
about 2 cups of spinach
1 red bell pepper
some Belgium endive
1/4 of an avocado
I got my veggies in for the day, for sure! All the fats are healthy fats from the nuts, avocado and canola oil based dressing. With it I had a slice of sweet potato foccacia that I made while in Vero Beach last weekend and kept frozen in Ryan’s freezer while I was Tampa. All in all, my salad hit the spot and my body feels good after eating some raw veggies. I think I will save the paella leftovers for tomorrow night when I am rushed coming home from work and going to school.
My roommate and I are spending as much time together as possible before she leaves, so tonight we are going to watch one of our favorite “feel better” movies, Elf. I’m sure I’ll be making some popcorn (got some organic, no salt or oil added kind from the health food store) and we will just be relaxing.
