Good morning! Happy Friday!
So, I reread everyone’s comments last night, slept on it, and I have decided that counting calories is not the best option for me right now. I realize the benefits of counting calories, but the cereal thing that happened the other night was 100% related to apartment search stress (and probably some book writing stress too). I thought Mal and I found renters for our place and found a new place to live, but both of those things came crashing down on the same night. I think multiple bowls of cereal were my way to deal with it.
Anyway, your comments and advice definitely helped me reevaluate how I have been eating lately. Most of it is stress-related, but some of it can be avoided if I make a better effort– like not buying “trigger foods,” drinking more water, eating more protein, and choosing nutritious foods for my meals and snacks.
It sort of seemed like I received a free counseling session from all of your wonderful comments! I feel like a new woman this morning! I decided to bookmark yesterday’s post as well as add it to my Lose the Dough page for motivation when I did it. Feel free to consult this post as well!
Mal and I slept in the morning, so while he got ready for school, I made us a yummy breakfast.
My apple-cinnamon-raisin-brown sugar oatmeal was such a hit on Wednesday morning, I decided to make it again. Mmm! Love this combo!
But, the real star of this morning’s breakfast was freshly brewed espresso drinks.
In the mix:
- 1 shot of espresso
- 6 oz. iced coffee
- 6 oz. vanilla soy milk
