Emotionally Drained

Yesterday was another emotionally draining day.  Without going into too much detail and for privacy reasons, I will tell you that we had grief counselors available at school yesterday…for the children.  I think you can probably figure out the tragedy that our school family has been dealing with the past two days. 

Without saying much more, I came home from work yesterday, later than usual and caught up with some friends on the phone while I was supposed to be running.  I just didn’t have the physical strength to lace up my running sneaks.  After a dinner out with my mom, I crashed on the couch around 8.  Hubbers woke me up at 8:30 and I went to bed.  This morning I woke up early in the hopes of getting my run in since my afternoon and evening are jam-packed, but I couldn’t get myself out of bed.  I think my body just needed rest.  I think I’ll survive a few days without exercise.

On to my eats for yesterday:



snack  I busted into it in the car on the way to work.  Clearly those Puffins didn’t do it for me!



I had a TJ’s vanilla Greek yogurt with pumpkin flax granola, two “Fig Newmans” and an organic gala apple.


PM snack was TJ’s “Tempting Trailmix.”


We went out for dinner to the ale house I’ve mentioned a few times.  I had a Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale, the salad (3/4 eaten) above and 1/2 of the bowl of butternut squash soup below.  I saved the other half of the soup for lunch today.  I love having lunch figured out the night before!




P1020812I whipped up a green monster in the hopes it will give me the energy I need today!  In the mix:

  • organic baby spinach
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 T almond butter
  • 1 T ground flax
  • 1 T Amazing Meal
  • frozen peach slices
  • 1/2 frozen banana

Well here’s to a new day.  This afternoon I have to attend a service and have a doctor’s appointment at 6:00.  It’s going to be a late night!
