Yesterday you said tomorrow.
Not sleeping for an excessive amount of time screwed me over.
No, I’m not necessarily more tired, at least I don’t feel so yet. I just feel cheated. I can’t be unconscious continuously for 8 hours since! I went to bed around 1 or 2am yestermorning and I woke up at 7! I was mad..and hungry. I couldn’t really fall back asleep and my mum of course was asleep. Don’t want to wake her up by busying myself about the kitchen. On top of that, I had this super duper breakfast that I planned on creating, which would make plenty of noise: Cocoa Barley-Oat Pancakes. Sigh. Whatever shall a vegan do?
Snack Attack. I had 1/3 apple in my closet. Don’t worry, it was in a baggy and even had lime juice all over it so that it wouldn’t brown. Chomped that up. Next! I made raw brownie balls did I not? I had 4 of them left, did I not? Not anymore. CHOMP. Then my sister texted me, and suggested I try to sleep again. I do. But not for long. Maybe until 9ish, but I was never really unconscious. Just stationary with closed eyes.
Well, mum finally awakes and I proceed to make my “special” breakfast. Pancakes! Whoo! I mixed the ingredients well, Note to self: next time cook the barley, then grind to make your flour. …&voila. Now, it was an experiment. It was. Mostly, the problem was the barley, and how it didn’t grind into flour, therefore I had to chew carefully. But cooking is all about trial and error. Next time, which I decided will be next week, I shall try again. But it was good. Not as good as yesterday’s decadent breakfast (which I shall have again in the morn!), but good nonetheless, and fulfilling. With the pancakes (makes 2 for 280 calories) I sliced a large banana, I like my bananas green. I put almost 1 tbsp. of Earth Balance Soy Garden butter on the pancakes. Pause. This soy butter is thee BEST. SO GOOD. Seriously. Resume. And 1 tbsp. of honey as my syrup. Satisfied, yes. Oh yes, and hot green tea. Drink up!
Snack #1 (At 1-2pm): celery sticks, water, 1 prune, roughly 16 peanuts, 8 cups popcorn
Today was Arms Day. Gah. It feels as though “arms day” is EVERY day.
Horrible. Simply arm grueling work. Gah.
Snack #2 (At 4:20pm): 1/2 apple, .75 cup shelled peanuts (no, I did not eat the shell, I try to restrain myself)
Supper (At 7pm): Split pea vegetable soup (added some sauteed mushrooms into the soup..yum)
Snack #3: (9pm): .5 tbsp. Natural PB, Salt & Vinegar roasted chickpeas (a handful I’d say)
And self-proclaimed Ab Day?
I felt as though I needed to do more today. I’m not sure why. I suppose I felt as though I snacked too much or something of the sort.
Question, Erica: Why do you do, aside from your self-proclaimed Ab Day, abdominal work when it is not Ab Day.
Answer: Remember, I am doing that 6 Weeks to 6 Pack challenge. Planks, Bicycle Holds, Bridges, Vertical Crunches, Reverse Crunches, Left Side Crunches, Right Side Crunches, and Lunges are all a part of the challenge. I do them 5 times a week with 2 rest days.
