I actually started off this morning similar to how I ended my night yesterday: FULL with a sore tummy.
(Note to self: if you plan on consuming twice your body weight in desserts and Mexican food... make sure that you're within 5 feet of a restroom at all times for the next ohhh 24 hours?)
For once in my life, I did NOT want to eat breakfast. I took my time sipping my usual cup(s) of coffee, hoping that my stomach would calm down a bit and breakfast would seem a little more appealing. After a few trips to visit my good friend, the porcelain throne, I decided to eat a bowl of puffed rice cereal topped with about half a nanner and some almond milk. LAME I know. This is so unlike me... (hahahah did anyone just realize that I described my breakfast and used the word toilet in the same sentence. This is like a routine dinner conversation in my household).
I decided that running my stomach pains off would be a good idea. This was probably the first mistake I made. Have you ever tried to run 10 miles with your butt cheeks clenched?? Alright, I shouldn't be that negative. I actually had a great run, which is why I decided to extend my usual 5-6 miler. I even tackled some hugeee hills - this is a nice "you probably should have stopped after the first 3 courses" wake up call, if you're ever looking for one.
Anyways, I could probably list the a million things that I thought about during my run (I have to poop, my stomach hurts, I wonder if they have Butterbeer frozen yogurt, I seriously have to poop) but let's skip to lunch and recovery snackie poos. Oh god. Now I'm including inappropriate bathroom words in all of my food-related sentences...
I drank a few liters of water. Grabbed a handful of almonds and walnuts. Some tea. THEN my stomach started to grumble... and this was a "feed me now" growl - the good kind :):)
I made myself an easy/fast lunch to remedy the situation...
Lavash Lunch Wrap
Ingredients: WHATEVER YOU WANT.
But really, mine usually includes:
- One lavash wrap (120 calories and HUGE!)
- Two slices of Kraft Singles Light cheese :)
sometimes soy crumbles, but I wasn't feeling meat today.
I heated up the lavash, mustard and bulgar in the convection oven, topped it with cheese and let that melt. Then added all the veggies. SO good! This was just what I needed. I take these wraps with me when I know I need something that won't perish, something that will fill me up, and something that is low in calories BUT still delicious. (I know... damn calorie counting).
I made another Medifast brownie/lava cake concoction before running, yes my legs were just as surprised as you are, out the door to the gym where I work. Um CAN I JUST SAY my supervisor is the greatest guy you'll ever meet? Guess what he brought me...
What is that, you ask? A VEGAN CINNAMON ROLL WITH VANILLA BEAN FROSTING AND BLUEBERRIES!!!! Yes, it was still warm when he delivered it on my desk :) Before you go thinking this guy is a total creeper... 1) He's my friend, not just my super and 2) He knows my detox ended yesterday, so he figured we should probably celebrate.
He's lucky I'm such a nice girl because I definitely split that with him... although I'd have no problem finishing it off in two bite and licking the plate clean (okay I still licked the plate)
OH and another thing, can you imagine how weird it is to walk into a gym and see the girl who is working the front desk chowing down on cinnamon buns and icing? Apparently it's unheard of. I got close to 80 weird and dirty looks from those poor souls who can't let themselves enjoy some decadence every once in awhile.... obviously I can.
okay okay okay I'm rushing to finish this post before I head out with my roomie and my foodie friend, I shall dub him Mr. Macaron, to do some exploring :)
You know what exploring usually means... I'll keep you guys posted on what ends up in my mouth tonight. EW. Sorry...
