Where’s my smile?

I’ve noticed the past two days have not been good for me. I have hardly smiled. I don’t know what’s going on but I haven’t felt this “down” in a long time. Maybe it’s the weather, changing of the seasons always seem to mess with me. I’m also coming off my ‘cycle’ so you ladies out there know how that feels. I also have been getting frustrated in other areas of my life as well and I guess it just came to a boiling point. I think it’s time to take a step back and re-assess things to see what is making me unhappy and what I can do to change it!

Breakfast – Banana chocolate smoothie (used last packet of hot cocoa mix) and scrambled egg on whole wheat toast. Had a coffee with Silk creamer mid-morning.



Snacks – Trail mix & grapes


Went to Yoga class before lunch! It was very relaxing and also quite challenging. It worked out some of my soreness from earlier in the week but added some new soreness today.

Lunch – Albacore tuna ‘steak’ (I didn’t care much for the flavor) on a salad with sunflower kernels, pecans and balsamic vinaigrette spritzer. Also had my soy yogurt because it didn’t quite fill me up!


Last Coke Zero for a while! I’m going to quit soft drinks again and work on caffeine too!


Around 4:00, I thought I needed a snack but looking back I could’ve waited until I got home. I got this terrible bag of Cheez-its out of the vending machine, we have nothing good here at work! They didn’t even taste that good and gave me a whopping 320 calories for nothing! 😦


We went to BD’s Mongolian Grill (a fave) for my dad’s birthday last night. I got shrimp, a little bit of crab and tilapia mixed with tons of veggies, an egg, and Kung Pao sauce. I liked it but not as much as the one I had last time with the spicy buffalo sauce. But it’s cool to try something different every time!

When I got home, I felt overwhelmed for no reason. I cried a bit and then ate my sorrows. I really need to do some reading on emotional eating. I’m usually in control of it but have found that when it does hit, it hits hard…

So Delicious neopolitan sandwiches

Some chocolate chip bunny grahams with caramel PB (ate some out of the jar too!)

Two dark chocolate kisses (after the caramel PB these didn’t taste so good, so I should’ve just left ’em). Oh well….tomorrow is another day!


I hope I get out of this funk soon, thanks for sticking with me!
