You Noodlehead

Hi there! I almost typed "good morning" and then "good afternoon"... I'm a little out of it; I flopped into bed for a nap early this afternoon and just now woke up. Blegh.

Even though I was unbelievably full last night, I had an apple before bed. Sometimes when I've eaten too much I do that because I think it will de-bloat me... does anyone else ever try that?

I've felt a little off all day. I think it started this morning, when we slept in until ten and then headed over to diner for some munchies.

I got a huuuuge bowl of oatmeal... this is much bigger than it looks! I'd say the bowl held about two cups. I got pecans and blueberries on the side.

About 1/3 of the way through, I started getting full. I love oatmeal so much that I just kept eating and ended up feeling overstuffed.

When I got downtown to go to the gym the food was not even close to being settled, so I wandered around Barnes & Noble in a daze for a little.

My workout today was horrible... I wasn't feeling great, and I just didn't want to be there working out. I did 20 minutes on the stairmaster, and I'm surprised I even made it that long. I tried to do the machines, but after my first arm list I looked in the mirror and said out loud to myself, "I can't do this today."

I felt claustrophobic all day, even when I was outdoors, like I couldn't get enough air. I'm not sure what that's about...

When I got home, I had leftover "chicken noodle soup" (broth, chik'n, shirataki noodles). I was so excited when I discovered that I could make "healthy ramen" (yes, I do actually like the taste of ramen, I'm not ashamed to admit it)!

I also had an Ezekiel muffin with almond butter and mango butter.

With vitamins and Emergen-C:

And a huge apple:

I still don't feel so hot, and we're going out to my favorite Japanese restaurant so I hope I feel better soon enough to fully enjoy it.

Have a lovely Friday night!
