March 4th (and carry on!) 2009: Breakfast and dinner

It is getting lighter earlier and earlier now!  And maybe this time next week it won’t be dark when I get up in the mornings.  Woo!

Okay guys so I’m having a very crabtastic day.  Actually I’m just very very tired which is causing me to be a bit cranky.  I was in bed last night before 10pm, I was passing out.  But I didn’t sleep all that well which is resulting in my not so fabbo day.  I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared this but I basically refer to myself as Sleep’s Bitch because I’ll do just about whatever she wants me to do.  I love sleep and require lots of it to function and to maintain a healthy mental balance.  I can go a day not having a good and decent amount of sleep, any longer and the results are not pleasant.  I get really out of sorts and become crabby and all sorts of not happy things.  I have always been like this.  I was the kid who always went down for a nap.  In fact, I was taking naps clear up until starting first grade (because that was all day school whereas kindergarten was 1/2 day.).  Nine+ hours of sleep is what I need.  I know, crazy!  So that’s the long way of saying, wow but this sister needs some sleep!

I got up at 6am dragging.  I debated getting up or sleeping in and finally got up.  I had the remainder of a project come in and I wanted to work on it today and get it finished.  As I was taking care of Rocks my body decided that it was famished and could we eat NOW please.  There was no way 1/2 a Z bar would cut it before running.  I decided to eat breakfast first and then work.  Once work was done I would go out for my run.

A huge bowl of oats this morning and coffee.  Mix-ins were:

  • Ground flax
  • Protein powder
  • Cranberries
  • Walnuts
  • Dark chocolate PB

YUM!  I inhaled that bowl too. :p  Then I got to work and oh boy did it take me a while to finish.  Seriously after I finished it, I was wiped out.  Drained.  Eyes felt like they were bugging out of my head which happens sometimes when I stare at a computer for too long.  I knew immediately a run was out of the question.  I just did not have the energy mentally or physically to do one today.  And I’m okay with that!  I know I’m now training for my first 1/2 and I need all the running I can get.  But forcing myself when my body just isn’t going to respond will not do me any good.  I’m smart enough to know that much. ;)  So no run today.  And yes that means I have officially signed up for my 1/2.  YIKES!

After a bit, I got up to make lunch.  All I was craving was a sandwich with some hummus on it!

So that’s what I had!  Oatnut bread with spicy hummus, romaine, green pepper, carrot, banana peppers, and two thin slices of pepperjack.  In the middle a sliced pear.  I love the combo of hummus and banana peppers but it doesn’t love me. :p  It always feels like a ton of bricks sitting in my stomach after eating and I have no clue why.

After lunch cleanup, I took Rocky out for his walk hoping that would make me feel better.  It’s a gorgeous day today!  Blue skies, sunny, and not terribly cold.  However, it didn’t do anything to lighten my mood.  Booo.  I need to go get a  few things accomplished and then decide how to handle my day.  Do I go to SF tonight?  That seems so daunting when all I really want to do is crawl in bed.  We’ll see!

  1. Congrats on officially signing up :) It’s so funny reading your posts because I swear we are the same person. I am having one of those days too, where I am probably going to skip my run and do something else instead. It actually fits in my schedule so it’s OK.

    Hope your energy perks up and you feel good for SF tonight.
