That’s just good advice.
Here’s some things I have done and ate in the past couple of days.
We were learning about plants at school. One of my lessons was about roots. So I raided my stock of veggies and brought in some of the root variety.
I also made a breakfast cookie. You have to make these the night before. Mine had the following:
- raw oats
- almond milk
- choco shakeology
- almond butter
- pinch of sea salt
Then in the morning I added walnuts and strawberries on top. Really, it’s the pinch of salt that makes this dish. It would be good without it, but sweetness is just enhanced by a tiny bit of salt. YUM.
My snack was cantaloupe. Also, YUM.
I had more peanut sauce, cous cous, spinach and scallions for lunch. This peanut sauce might be my new favorite thing.
Second snack was a banana with cinnamon and peanut butter. The cinnamon was a little dry (it was on the side of the banana and the butter was on the top). So I think next time I would put the cinnamon on and spread the peanut butter on top of it.
I honestly don’t know what I had for dinner this night. Mostly because this afternoon I was so distracted I could barely function. I’m not sure that even an IV of aderol could have kept my head straight. I digress.
So this was Thursday’s eats. Friday’s eats were a bust. I had a really good black bean burger, bran flakes for breakfast, and peanut sauce covered pasta for lunch. I didn’t even bother photographing the food. Lo siento. I’ll be better in the future, I promise. In the mean time here are some ways I deal with stress:
- Call mom. I heard on the John Tesh radio show that a call to mom is just as comforting as a hug. They did a study and everything.
- Recognize that worrying is a useless practice.
- Think about laying on the couch with Kellen. This always immediately calms me.
- Breath deeply in through my nose and out through my mouth. Ahhhh.
- Change my environment. Get out of the place where the stress-inducing stuff went down.
- Do an activity where you go into “auto pilot”. Laundry and cleaning are good for me.
- Remember that one thing does not define who you are or what your life is about.
Have a happy weekend, friends 🙂
