Off Day (Day 545)

Hi all!

Sorry this one is coming so late! How is everyone doing today? Happy first day of "spring". Yeah, pretty sure that it is not spring here in Wisconsin. It's about 20 degrees and sunny but there's still snow on the ground. So that's not a very springy. But at least it's sunny and besides being cold, it's fairly nice out. Tomorrow it's suppose to finally start "warming" up, getting all the way up to 30. I'll take it! How is the weather by all of you?

Today I am just having an "off" day, I'm not sure what's going on with me. I didn't want to wake up this morning, I wasn't feeling like exercising (but I still did), I'm craving carbs like crazy, I just feel exhausted. It must just be one of those days, we all are off physically, emotionally, spiritually, etc... sometimes. But like I said, I still got my scheduled exercise done. It took me longer than I would have liked, but I got it done either way. I have no idea why I'm craving carbs though, it's sort of ridiculous. I was making my lunch today and I just wanted to eat some crackers, chips, peanut butter cookie dough and a bunch of other things. For the most part, I resisted, but I did snag a small spoonful of peanut butter cookie dough. We're having some mashed potatoes with our dinner tonight, so I'll get some carbs that way. Plus the recipe I'm trying out has some apples in it, so there's more carbs there. I'm sure that this will pass, it's probably an emotional thing or stress.

As I was just saying, I'm trying out a new recipe tonight. It was a recipe that I found on a blog (I don't remember which one, sadly :( ). But it is pork chops with apples in this delicious sounding sauce (brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg = super yummy)! I'll do a little review of it tomorrow and hopefully I can remember to take a picture before serving them tonight. I'm changing up the recipe a little bit, instead of pan frying them I'm just going to bake them. But I'll still do the sauce and apples the same way. I hope that it turns out well.

I have absolutely no ambition to write my paper that is due on Sunday. It's not just an easy paper, I need to watch a 2 hour documentary first and then write about it. I have my paper all set up, now I just need to watch the documentary and write the paper. Me losing motivation about half way through a class usually happens, and it's right on schedule, I'm on week 5 of 10. But I really do need to get this paper done very soon, it's already Wednesday and I haven't even started it. Tonight I will hopefully watch the documentary and then start writing my paper. And ultimately, I am hoping to get the bulk of the paper done today and tomorrow. I can and will do this!

Time to just relax for a few minutes, start dinner in a little bit and then watching my documentary tonight. I hope that you all have a wonderful afternoon/evening! So until next time.



  1. I go through phases like that too where my body craves carbs, or something sweet or salty, I think it's my body's way of telling me something but I'm just not sure what...a lot of times it is when I'm stressed or..that time of the month :) good job on getting your workout in even though you weren't totally feeling it, i'm sure your body thanks you!
