the blahs

so i’m going to make this a quick post because i am taking a night off. i just feel so blah today and need a break. i’m sure everyone has those days. mine come once a month. yup!

for some reason this times just way worse. the last two days i have wanted nothing but sweets and bread. i know it doesn’t sound that bad but i am usually a girl that drinks a green monster for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and two different veggies for dinner. bread and sweets are a little out of daily routine.

yesterday after lunch all i could think about were chips, so off to the vending machine i went for some sun chips. thank goodness for that dollar bill floating around my bag. today for dinner i was craving pizza (from a sushi place, mind you – i LOVE sushi) so that’s what i got. and then we went to barnes and noble to read and i couldn’t leave without a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. yummm!!

i know in the grand scheme of things it doesn’t seem that bad and i know it’s not. i will get over this in the next day or two and be back at the gym tomorrow but this food i crave just makes me feel worse. maybe that’s the reason it’s worse this time around, because i’m actually giving in to my cravings even though i know they don’t agree with my stomach.

i’m going to get back to my movie. i love “yes man.”

do tell me, though, anyone out there have these days. i know you do but a girl needs to know she’s not alone.

    Everyone needs a break sometime! I know exactly how you feel. Sometimes when I’m stressed I really just want a cookie or chips or something. Occasional indulgences are ok! Don’t feel like you “ruined” everything (though I know it’s easier said than done sometimes!) — you deserve to treat yourself sometimes!

      thanks for the encouragement, meredith! i know this doesn’t change the lifestyle i already have but i hate that i give into things that make me feel like crap. if a cookie makes my stomach hurt for the rest of the night, why do i even eat it? it’s that kind of mental control i want to regain – if it makes you feel bad, don’t eat it. but yes, a treat is always well-deserved!

    You will be back to normal in no time. It’s when you allow yourself to go months that it can break the new habits you have formed. We all need a few days of relaxing and junk food every now and then. Hang in there.
    As for the green monsters… can you give me some tips? I just tried to make one this morning and completely failed 😦
    Check out my blog and you will see… lol

      i make a very simple green monster every morning: 1 cup milk (i use almond milk), 2 or 3 big handfuls of baby spinach, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, half a banana (frozen is best), and a scoop of jay robb egg white protein powder (i use chocolate). i always blend the milk and spinach together while i’m gathering the other ingredients because it helps the spinach get more blended into the milk. then add your other ingredients and blend away.

      thanks for commenting! and i will definitely check out your blog and leave this post on their as well 🙂
