I wasn't feeling great today. The crappy food from last night made me very sluggish, and then some personal stuff happened. Anxiety/depression rears its ugly head.

I didn't feel like being around people today... so I did Bob's Weight Loss Yoga instead of going to yoga class. Bob always makes me feel better. I also watched Mr. Rogers for about an hour. Seriously, lol.

In the evening, I went swimming at the gym... just doing some laps and letting the water ease away my tension. I got into the sauna for 10 minutes to sweat out some toxins. I feel better. Accomplished.

I'll be ok. I'm pushing through it. Getting this down in writing might actually be helping me to avoid eating my feelings. It's okay to feel bad, I don't need to be anxious about it, or try to suppress it with food. Some days just suck, and that is life. Tomorrow will be better.

Weekly Fitness Goals (Jun1-Jun7)
Full-Body ST: 1/2
Sprinting Intervals: 0/1
Light Cardio: 4/4
Classes@Gym: 1/2

Breakfast: N/A - I wasn't hungry due to last night's large dinner, so I made this my weekly intermittent fast.

Lunch: I used leftover meat sauce from my freezer to make Gluten-free Butternut Squash Lasagna. I used eggs, organic mozzarella, and grana padano cheese in place of ricotta (I can't handle soft cheeses), and butternut squash rounds in place of noodles. Very yum.

Snack: Leftover vegetable soup. Hard-boiled eggs. Almond milk. Kimchi. Strawberries.

Dinner: Roasted herb-rubbed pork loin with apple/onion sauce. Creamed Spinach (I got a beautiful bunch of local spinach in my CSA last week that I needed to use up before my next bin comes on Thursday. I used this recipe:

    Like your recipe for success. I love creamed spinach, but had forgotten about using it. Thanks for the reminder. The squash lasagna looks interesting, but my hubby would not touch it. LOL. Glad you are rebounding from your "bad day". emoticon

    You had a bad day, but you bounced back beautifully today. By taking it one day, one moment at a time you are moving in a very positive direction. I am happy for you that you did not let one bad night ruin your next day! CONGRATULATIONS ob a good day today. I hope you continue with this momentum tomorrow!

    emoticon for the day!

    I'm really enjoying your blog posts - sorry to hear that you weren't having such a great day, but you're right, they just happen. But then they're over! I never thought of swimming as a way to ease tension. I might try that (when I get the courage to actually get into a bathing suit!).

    And your lasagna looks badass. Keep it up!

    Your lasagna looks good. I just bought zucchini to make a noodle-less lasagna tomorrow night for dinner.

    Love the cartoon--I never thought of it like that!

    Think about it this way. You KNOW exactly what you did wrong. and you are suffering the consequences. If you ever have a moment of weakness again, you can remind yourself that *this feeling* is not worth it.
