Day 4: Emotions Rear Ugly Head

Short entry today.  More of the same phooey withdrawal symptoms so I do not want to talk too much negative dribble tonight.

Mostly I discovered today how I use food to deal with stress.  When you don't have the numbing effects of comfort food, you are left to deal with the emotions. Yeah.  Fun stuff.

Ran 8.1 miles this morning.  I did not feel any significantly different than usual on the run.  I had fatigue toward the last half mile of run. Still having a hard time getting up in the morning.  Blah. Blah. And blah.

Breakfast:

  • Dark Chocolate Nugo Protein bar

  • Chocolate Bliss Protein drink

  • Tall toffee nut iced coffee with soy milk


Lunch

  • Chickpea Salad (apple, celery, chickpeas, lemon juice and salt)

  • Whole wheat toast with hummus

  • Dark Chocolate Nugo Protein bar

  • Apple juice


Snack

  • Whole wheat toast with apple butter

  • Banana

  • Peach


Dinner

  • Vegan Mac & Cheese & beans (Soy milk, whole wheat pasta, red beans, vegan butter and Nutritional yeast)

    • This was okay considering it was missing the fat and sodium.  I will make it with mushrooms next time to add that extra something-something.



  • A bowl of pomegranates


Still waiting for that boundless energy to appear.  Any day now.  Any day.
