No meatless Monday today. I tried something different today - well 2 things different. 1st I did not have oatmeal for 2nd breakfast, I had a big ole egg scramble w/ egg beaters, spinach, cherry tomatoes, onions, and bell peppers. On top of that I put 1/2 ounce of cheese and 1/4 cup salsa. It was might good. Just to make sure I got enough fiber I had 30 grams of fiber one cereal in 1/2 cup coconut milk. It lasted me till lunch time very well. I was not feeling that "I'm so hungry I need to eat NOW" feeling that I normally do around lunch time. Then at lunch I had a rather large lunch wanting to see if that made me want less for dinner. I think it worked, sort of. I had enchilada casserole for lunch it was sooo very good. I also had some broccoli. Snacks today were cottage cheese and pineapple and then later popcorn and chocolate milk.
Then for dinner I was not entirely hungry, but I was starting to feel bad so I knew I needed to eat. But since I wasn't hungry I couldn't figure out what to eat. Nothing sounded good. Do you ever have days like that where nothing sounds good? On top of nothing sounding good I was not feeling like making much of an effort so I needed something simple. After probably 45 min of thinking about it I settled on a turkey sandwich on sandwich thins. On the side I had some Terra chips and hummus. It was a good meal. It was enough, smaller than my usual dinners but enough.
My headache (from this morning) is returning though which means I'll be lucky if I can make it to 8pm tonight. I am already yawning. In a way I feel ridiculous that I have to go to bed so early, but then I consider the fact that I get up at 4am ever day and really its going to bed early makes sense if you look at it that way. Besides I know my body wants at least 8 hours of sleep each night so I should give it that.
Tomorrow is a meat free day to coincide with Yoga. I was thinking if I am going to go meat free every time I do Yoga then I need to start doing it on Sundays as well because I do Yoga on Sunday. So that would make me meat free for 3 days at week at least. I think my body is still adjusting to the change in protein - it still doesn't take protein from beans quite as well as it takes protein from beef or chicken - but I'm sure it will eventually get its act together!
So that I am boring today, I'm just really feeling "blah" and kinda crappy. Hopefully more interesting things to talk about tomorrow. Have a great night.
