This post is going to be an exercise in randomness. Okay? Okay.
I don’t think I ever reviewed the wild pomegranate pecan Bora Bora bar. (Well, obviously not — I still had it!)
I really liked the sweetness of the pomegrante and cherry! But it left a greasy sheen behind, and I didn’t appreciate that part.
As it turns out, my left wrist is just fine; I think I sprained my thumb. Luckily, I had an acupuncture appointment this morning, which did help quite a bit. It still hurts, but at least I can move it now. Without wanting to scream in anguish, that is.
Yesterday, before the start of the fast, one of my married brothers came over to eat at my house, since my sister-in-law and the kids are away. I was about halfway through this when he arrived:
“That looks really good!” He was all excited to have one… and disappointed to find that everyone else was eating something different, because, in my words, “The people in this house do not eat the same way I do.” (My dad took offense to that and insisted that no, “You don’t eat the same way as the people in this house!” Whatever.) Anyway, it actually was really good, so because I am a sweet sister (so sweet that I followed up by complying with their request for milkshakes)…
…oh yes, I was saying how sweet I was. I made this because my brother was supposedly coming over to my house to break the fast, but he didn’t end up doing that. My parents and other brother ate it, though. No word yet on how awful they thought it was!
Tortilla base spread with a mixture of tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, and Frank’s, topped with onion, green pepper, corn kernels, Lightlife “beef” crumbles, and nooch. Note the absence of mushrooms and broccoli; the crazy people here don’t like them! However, I do. Hence…
Savory oats! I wanted to, but was actually literally scared to use steel cut oats, since I so adored the rolled oats the last time I made them… but I’m glad I went with the steel cut anyway, because it. was. amazing. So: steel cut oats with a beaten egg white mixed in, steamed broccoli, zygote carrots, and baby bellas, Lightlife “beef” crumbles, Frank’s, and nooch. I was a little confused about whether to use a spoon or a fork for this! I wound up going with the spoon, simply because it was already dirty… but what would you use??
I realize this post is absolutely not in any logical order whatsoever, but hey, that’s to be expected; I’m the one writing it! This is where I sat until 1.02 PM today:
The lower step. With the upper step jabbing me in the spine all the while. It was vastly uncomfortable. But then, I guess that’s kind of the point. (Can’t decide if it was better or worse than my perch last year…) Anyway, I did fast. Until midday (1.02). This would have been a perfectly fine plan, had I compensated for the missed calories, but I didn’t make up for all of them.
The problem is not that I don’t know how to fit them in. I mean, yes, at some point it becomes sort of ridiculous trying to do that — like if I were already consuming 3000+. But I am not. I am, in fact, kind of in a free-fall. The sort in which I am eating half of what I was a couple of weeks ago, if that, and the notion of eating more on one day than the day before is pretty unbearable… but simultaneously managing to convince myself that since I haven’t lost a whole bunch of weight and I feel fine, it doesn’t matter. And this is not okay.
Random photo of the day.
It wasn’t on this train, but a random woman told me today, “I like your earrings, they’re very nice.” Isn’t that sweet? This would be an appropriate place to insert a photo of said earrings. However, I am too lazy to get up and take one, and I can’t find one to recycle. I’m pretty confident that nobody will lose any sleep over this… except maybe me, but I don’t have any to lose. 😉
Have a happy Hump Day.
