It has been a long week. With my company being sold and me being out of a job sometime later in the year (no date yet) things are pretty stressful but I'm doing my best to deal with them. I hate not knowing my own future, it's just so scary. I'm having dinner with two of my work friends tonight and I'm very much looking forward to that. I'm hoping to spend some time with my family this weekend if things aren't too crazy for everyone.
I have a lot of work to do and a lot of discipline to get back but I am taking some steps to get back to healthy eating. This week was tough because Monday night I had dinner at a Mexican restaurant with a friend and I don't think what I ate sat well. It's Friday and I'm still having issues with my stomach although it is definitely improving. I think with the stress lately, not eating properly if at all and the Mexican food my body just said "Hey okay I give up!" :)
So today is the first time all week where I've had a decent appetite. I'm eating clean as much as possible today. We are going to a pizza place tonight and the plan is to split a pizza and have side salads so I'm watching my intake for the rest of the day so I can just enjoy it.
This weekend I'll have to get some work done around the house and get some proteins cooked. I'm going to pull out my blender and start mixing smoothies in the morning I think. With some protein powder it will be a great kick start to my day and really the only reason I don't do them is I hate washing the blender. I read recently that if you just blend some hot water, a drop of dish soap and a splash of vinegar it does a great job of quick cleaning and keeps your jar free of hard water build up. Then I can just give it a quick clean during the week and a good thorough cleaning on the weekends! Voila! Smoothies on the way to work.
I'm not that hungry and am considering skipping lunch but I think that would be a mistake since I'm trying trying trying to get back to grazing all day so I think I'll just cut up some veggies and eat those for lunch. I do need a protein and I have some canned tuna but no bread or yogurt to mix with it and I do not think I can stomach tuna without. Maybe I'll see what's in the fridge that I can borrow.
