8am - PBJ: natural peanut butter and low-sugar strawberry jam on toasted spelt bread
11am - raw almonds and dried apricots
12:30pm - chocolate protein shake and grapes (green and red)
2:00pm - THREE HOUR NAP! The little guy was kind enough to sleep extra long so I did, too!
5:30pm - tiny Snickers bar I found in the car on the way to see friends at running group (didn't run)
7:30pm - chicken, black beans, salsa from the CrockPot, served as a dip with flax chips. I couldn't taste a single bite of ANYthing, all day, so I doused this in Frank's RedHot just for kicks. While it made my tongue tingle, I still couldn't perceive any flavor. Frustrating!
The high point of my day was having my sinuses open up a bit around 1am, and today I feel like the fog is lifting and I can almost breathe again. Breakfast (pumpkin pancake w/ walnuts, Neufchatel cheese, real maple syrup, coffee) was still tasteless, but at least I don't feel like my head is going to explode anymore. My cheeks ache like I might be developing a sinus infection, though. Running is probably going to hurt...
The little guy and I are off to meet a friend at Panera for our monthly lunch date this afternoon; I think a bowl of vegetable soup is in order. I'm pleased to report that I've kept up with my meal plan for the week so far; tonight's vegan split pea soup (didn't feel like having chicken two days in a row) is in the slow cooker as I type. Have a great day!
