Little Black Cloud

We all have those moments. That little black cloud hanging over your head, following you every step you take. I am starting to wonder when the bad luck will come to an end. It really is getting exhausting.

Yesterday morning I woke up, rolled over and saw my alarm clock that read 05:50. UM WHAT?

I had overslept, I am supposed to be at work, and I am looking at my phone in disbelief that I set FIVE alarms and either do not remember turning them off, or they never did. I’m going to go with option number one.

Normally I’d panic, but I thought okay, I will just get dressed, walk out the door and be a little late. I will miss rounds (the most crucial part of the day), but someone can fill me in.

Unfortunately Phoebe had to be rushed in the bathroom because maintenance was coming in. I couldn’t trust to leave her out and then worry all day that she was scared or got out of my apartment! Later on they called me and said do you want us to let your puppy out of the bathroom and lock up? Super nice! At first I panicked and said no don’t touch her (protective mother), then I thought well she is going to cry in there all day, and then I told them to let her out. I made SURE they did not have any issues and they assured me she wouldn’t be roaming the halls of the building ๐Ÿ™‚ Psycho mommy….

Then I hit the highway and traffic was at a standstill. Really awful accident, which made me feel like a real jerk because I was just having some bad luck, but nothing compared to what could be. I found out later that accident happened at the time I am usuallyย at that spot, so I guess it was a blessing in disguise that I overslept!

The highlight of my day? Well that would be breakfast. I look forward to my overnight oats every single day now. I am obsessed with them. The container on the right is just 4 hard boiled egg whites with southwestern Mrs. Dash. I usually have an apple too and coffee.

My overnight oats: 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup (depending on how busy my day will be), unsweetened vanilla almond milk until it covers all oats, 1 stevia in the raw packet, cinnamon sprinkled

The day just dragged. That 2:30 feeling came, and I thought okay just a few more hours. I ended up staying till 5 to make up time and I knew I was going straight home to make sure my puppy was fine!



I wonder what was going through her little mind when the bathroom door opened and she saw it wasn’t Mommy. “Who is this stranger!? Stranger Danger!” Sometimes I wish she could talk.

I snacked a little on some trail mix and went right to my bed. Plop, door closed, puppy was crying, but I knew she’d stop. I needed a nap without her jumping on me. 2 glorious hours later I woke up. But then I was really disoriented and thought it was the weekend. NAP FAIL.

Since I was being lazy all around, dinner ended up being not so much of a dinner. I made a double fluff with my butter toffee protein powder, which BY THE WAY says “new and improved taste” and I hate it, it tastes super blah and bland. Don’t mess with a good thing people! Figures I bought the 5 pound bottle this time.

Then I ended up having more carbs… hey I had a bad day.

black bean hummus

This is black bean hummus I found at BJs the other day. It is INCREDIBLE!

Actually the ingredients are pretty clean and it’s one of the more nutritious hummuses… humm-i?… hummusies? Oh geez I don’t know what the plural for hummus is! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Check out the label

So as you see no pictures of me today, I did not look good yesterday. In fact I never brushed my hair and at one point grabbed a comb from a storage closet and finally made it a little more presentable. I guess I’m really not there to impress anyone, but still I don’t want a rats nest when walking into a patients room.

Today I will get back to the gym. It’s either going to be a back and shoulders combo day or arms, depends on my mood.

Have a great hump day!

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,

    That really is a good thing you over slept! I guess everything does happen for a reason. Mmmmm Hummus, I’ve been craving it for a while, I have no idea why, but it just sounds good on everything. I do the same, when I’m tired and didn’t sleep well, I seem to crave carbs way more. Hope today is better for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheer up buttercup!! I guess I will need to find some funny GM pics to send you!!! SO shocker, I am going to contribute to your food discussion!! You probably knew this, but I did NOT!! I heard yesterday that hummus, -is…-essess… whatever :), contain estrogen, and sure enough, its true! Chick peas, and then when I looked more, a lot of other natural plant foods do… and since I need to be careful now to keep levels GONE, sad news ๐Ÿ™ I guess no more late night hummus binges. It was sad looking at the list, because I do want to clean up my diet, and I’m picky, what the heck is left!!?? And pumpkin is on there, its almost halloween!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So sad. I know sacrifices need to be made sometimes, but doesn’t mean I can’t have a mini pity party. Ok, over. Maybe I am the only one who was clueless about estrogen in food but I had NO IDEA!
