I feel like I’m getting back on track. Yesterday wasn’t perfect, but it was way better. I’ll get the bad stuff out of the way first – I had a diet pepsi with lunch and I stress-snacked late into the night as I worked. At least it was Paleo snacking (dinner leftovers, jerky)?
I scrambled three eggs with spinach and coconut oil, then topped them with a few avocado chunks and some cilantro. As usual, added a side of jalapeno sauerkraut and a decaf black coffee.
For lunch I brought leftover tacos to assemble at my desk. It was a little messy and my plate was only large enough to fit one taco at a time. I’ll probably go back to Taco Tuesday leftovers in the form of a taco salad. I forgot to take a picture, but I had three tacos and one hard boiled egg.
I never left the building yesterday, so around 3 I was getting antsy and a little hungry. I went to Grab N Go and bought a small bowl of strawberries. They were okay, but I should just be better prepared and buy my own from the Farmers Market on the weekends. Cheaper, taste way better, and don’t come with a side of fun pesticides.
Once I got home, I decided to make paprika chicken with a spicy paprika a friend recently brought me from Budapest. While the chicken baked I had a mug of home made broth (I’m convinced I’m so stressed and sleep deprived I’m going to get sick just in time for the big vacation) and mixed a little salad of tomato, cucmber, vinegar, olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. Aside from the oversnacking in the evening, that was it for the day. I feel like I’ve turned a corner and I’m doing it while being super stressed out. Maybe there is hope for me after all.
