Another day down the tubes. This week has basically been a bust. Haven't worked out since Thursday. Food is pretty good now, not so terrible with the nighttime snacking, but I am having a hard time with planning my meals, being mindful of how much time has gone by since I've last eaten, etc. etc. etc. Today I just feel sick of all this hard work! I know I won't feel this way forever, but today I'm kind of tired of the whole eat-sleep-breathe-pray BFL. On the other hand, I can tell I don't feel as good as I had been feeling, when I was making the time to eat every three hours, planning my meals in advance, and exercising. And, also, I am bummed and aggravated at my lethargy for the past three days in regards to working out. So really, could you come kick the seat of my pants and help me out here?
I am surrendering this week, as it is, in all its imperfect glory. I can't do a thing about what has already happened, and all I can do is work on the day I'm in, the moment I'm in. Since that is about 18 minutes away from my third Free Day (and, of course, I'm not about to give that up), that means I will step back and blow off this week, and come back like gangbusters for this upcoming Monday, the start of Week Four.
However, I do want to show you what I made for lunch. It was so good, very healthy, and pretty too! I went to the farmer's market yet again and this time I made out like a bandit. I got peppers, tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, fairytale eggplant, and even the yarn I've been lusting after. Here is a shot of my loot:
Isn't that gorgeous? There was so much more I wanted to get. They have local farmers coming in from all over with so many different things...homegrown, grassfed beef, homemade soap, carved wooden utensils, pottery, etc. I'm going to try to stick with just the vegetables and fruit, though.
Ha ha, how'd that get in there! That's sock yarn from the Three Waters Farm. It's B-E-A-utiful. This yarn and I are just starting to get to know each other, so we're not a serious item yet, but I think there will be a date set in the future for it, me, and some sock knitting. Oh yes, we shall be together, darling, and soon.
Anyway, I cut an heirloom tomato into wedges, and opened a can of tuna. I made this:
which is tasty enough, especially with a sprinkling of salt all over to bring out the flavor. But I took it a notch up, with my homemade dressing of equal parts balsamic vinegar, mustard, Splenda, and olive oil. It sort of destroys the beauty of my lunch, but the taste of it was amazing. Here you go:
I am going to ask God to please give me some more gumption for next week. Maybe I'll ask for a kick in the pants, too. See you Monday!
