Happy Monday!!!Posted: March 8, 2010
I woke up uncharacteristically early this morning (boo hiss!) but I decided to capitalize on the patently gorgeous Florida spring weather to run my lake. Gotta looove living a hopskip away from this:
Somehow running it was a big challenge for me today, and I ended up walking a bit of it. Maybe my body wasn’t fully awake yet? I had a beloved Clif bar for fuel, so I figured I’d be good to go, but maybe not. I’m not beating myself up over it though, because it’s officially the first day of my Spring Break! I’m trying to put Spring back into my step, not Break my spirit over missing my mark. Just room to improve for next time 🙂
So. Random musing. But, en route to the lake, my radio was blasting Adam Lambert’s “What Do You Want From Me”. As I was sitting there listening to the lyrics, it almost sounded like a letter To Me, From My Body. Think about it.
“There might have been a time when I would give myself away…Oh once upon a time, I didn’t give a damn…”
“Yeah, it’s plain to see, that baby you’re beautiful, and there’s nothing wrong with you…Thanks for loving me, ’cause you’re doing it perfectly…”
“There might have been a time when I would let you slip away…I wouldn’t even try but I think you could save my life…”
“Please don’t give up, I’m working it out. Please don’t give in, I won’t let you down. It messed me up, need a second to breathe. But what do you want from me?”
Anywho. Got back from my weakie run and started noshing on this delish-ness (I wonder WTF is up with the random incorrect timestamp?)
A sliced gala apple completely smothered in a chocolatey sauce made of on teaspoon of Dark Chocolate Dreams (I warmed it for 30 seconds in the micro to soften it a bit), a splash of almond milk, and a half scoop of SlimFast chocolate protein shake powder. Completely simple and all good for me, so no guilt! I had some brown sugar laying around and felt like being all garnish-ey-flair-ey, so I tossed a teeny pinch on top, although it didn’t really do anything other than make those funny darker specks on top. Not planning to do that again. The sauce is something I will def repeat, though – creamy, gooey, and my chocolate fix!. I’m just glad my roomie wasn’t here to see me…erm…um… licking the bowl.
Lunch rolled around and there was nooo hunger in mah body, but I did decide to have something because I know I won’t be eating until late late late tonight (have another appointment to see another potential place!) Went for something light and simple – coffee, carrots and English cuumber slices, and V8 Butternut Squash Soup. This *is*, unfortunately, made with milk, so it’s not vegan, but it is a nice vegetarian option. It’s got a nice warm, spiced, fall-esque taste to it; almost a cinnamon aftertaste? I like it very much, though!
Don’t mock my plastic lil’ kiddie dishes. I do what I can for living in a dorm. Although I have my eye on these lovelies for once I move into a real place. J’adore Tar-jay!
