I just feel...icky.
I went out of town this weekend to visit an old friend. I mentally gave myself the weekend off from eating healthy. I stayed Paleo on Friday, but ate a lot of delicious things on Saturday and Sunday I would normally avoid. No regrets!
The problem came on Monday. It's my spring break, but I signed up for a one-credit, 2-day workshop. On Monday, I picked my dog up from boarding at 6:30am and they told me there was some blood in his urine and to keep an eye on it. When we got home, I let him out in the yard and sure enough, there was some blood. I'm so glad he was at boarding when this happened because I don't know if I would've noticed it, it was very subtle and it's not like I squat down and examine his yellow snow patches when he's done. I was freaking out and trying to figure out how big of a deal it was and waiting for the vet to open. We got an appointment for right after my class, but I didn't have time to make my own breakfast, lunch, or snacks like I had been planning to. They offered free breakfast and lunch, so I was stuck with that. I had Chobani yogurt and a banana with peanut butter for breakfast. Not too bad. Lunch was sandwiches, chips, and cookies. Not a vegetable in sight! And it wasn't even good. If I'm going to eat something unhealthy, it better at least taste good! I felt much better that evening when I finished the day with a big salad, topped with steak, avocado, and peppers.
Tuesday was a little better. I ate my own breakfast before class and brought some snacks, but since I was out of town, I didn't really have anything I could bring for lunch, which ended up being salad and lasagna. The salad was just romaine lettuce and croutons, not very good but I took as much as I could. I also had a small piece of veggie lasagna and just felt gross afterwards. Yesterday I had to go straight from the class to the cooking class where I volunteer. We made a chicken and veggie stew, okra, asparagus, cornbread, and oatmeal raisin cookies. Since I already had a bad day, I ended up eating more cornbread and cookies than I should have and just felt gross when I got home.
Enough complaining though. I am SO EXCITED for the rest of the week. Even though I have a lot of schoolwork to do, I can sleep in, make all my meals, and WORKOUT. I haven't worked out since I did 13.2 last Wednesday night. Eek! I'm planning on doubling up tonight with regular class (we're doing Diane) and Oly. I also can't wait to hear what 13.3 is! (Fingers crossed for wall balls!)
PS- My dog probably just has a UTI and is acting like his normal crazy self. He's on meds and will be checked again once they clear his system in 2 weeks. Hope it's nothing worse!
