An omelette with 2 eggs, purple onion, spinach, tomatoes. A piece of toast with butter, and a cup of coffee with about a tablespoon of half and half cream.
Everything was great until I got to work. at about 10:00 a.m. I got really hungry. I was pretty confused, because I had only just eaten breakfast two hours earlier. “Perhaps, I’m just thirsty,” I thought to myself. (Well, to be honest, I don’t think I would ever use the word “perhaps” in my mind.) So, I drank 2 bottles of water. But that didn’t work. So I started looking for a snack. In my Aunt’s office I found some delicious cracker pretzels. Don’t worry, I checked the ingredients. I was surprised to see that they were all pretty normal ingredients. I ate a handful.
I wasn’t satisfied. So I found some dried pomegranate raising looking things. I had a handful of those.
By Noon, I was super hungry. I took my lunch break.
2 cups of white rice with teriyaki sauce
a handful of baby carrots
I was really excited to eat my teriyaki rice. However, I was sorely disappointed. I put way too much sauce on it that morning. It was on it’s way to becoming a soup. But, I was actually just full. It was a great feeling. I didn’t feel gross from being too full or stuffed. I was satisfied.
At about 2:00 I started to feel it.
I’ve never been tested for anemia, but I suspect that I am anemic. My mum is anemic. I crave ice. Every once in a while I’ll lose every ounce of energy I have. That’s what it felt like today at 2:00. My body was crashing. It’s a terrible feeling. I’m a big believer in listening to what your body wants. If I didn’t eat something, I probably would have passed out at work. So...I got M&Ms from the vending machine in the hopes that they would give me some sort of energy. I felt guilty. I swore off processed sugars. I barely made it out of work at 5:00. When my grandpa came to pick up to go home, all I could think about was sleeping. I came home and layed on the couch.
I had every intention of exercising today. But stupid anemia had other plans.
For dinner, my grandma cooked.
steak sandwich on a hoagie with tomatoes and a pickle, a handful of kettle cooked potato chips dipped in hummus, 1/2 cup of corn, and then I ate an extra thin piece of meat hoping it would boost my iron.
It was just enough. I left the table feeling satisfied. I didn’t eat any seconds.
The day wasn’t a total disaster, I found out that my aunt has p90x. Soo...starting tomorrow...I’ll be a p90x girl. I’ll definitely be blogging about my experience with that.
