Food funk

Good morning!

I am so sad, WordPress totally ate my post I had started last night. 😦

So, unfortunetly, you won’t get to see the beautiful pictures I took of my breakfast this morning. Telling you about it will have to do!

But first, my workout. I took it easy at the gym yesterday morning by doing an easy 30 minutes on the stationary bike. So this morning, I was more than ready to hit the treadmill for a sweaty run. And that I did. 7 miles in 67 minutes.

Now, going back to my post on Monday, I told y’all I was going to start cutting back a bit on my workouts and their intensity. The only reason I ran 7 miles this morning is because I will be sleeping in tomorrow and giving my body a rest. Worth the long run this morning in my book.

To refuel, I put together a bagel sammie. My sammie included a pumpkin bagel, pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin butter and banana. All heated up in the microwave. It was love at first bite, I felt like doing a little dance, but I restrained myself ;).

It was definitely spiced up from earlier this week when I just had a pumpkin bagel and pumpkin cream cheese. No hating on that combo either though, it still rocks.

This photo actually gives you a good idea of what my sammie looked like!

And on to my food rut…

Has anybody gone through a time where NOTHING sounds good? Where you have ample groceries and your cupboard and frige are stocked, but you can’t find one thing you want to pack for breakfast/lunch? Yep, this is what I am going through right now. Ugh.

I have been feeling this way for the past few days. I know, I know, life could be much worse, but it is just annoying. And I’m not sure what to do? Maybe try some new foods to spice up my eats? Suggestions?

Needless to say, I didn’t pack anything for lunch, because nothing sounded appetizing. I of course will eat, it will just be me going to get something at lunch.

Here’s where you come in. You can help me decide what to have for lunch. I may or may not have what the majority of you say, depending on how I feel in a few hours, but it is fun anyway, right? Lol.

Have a great hump day!

  1. omg that bagel bfast sammie looks drool-worthy. wayyyy better than my stupid oats combo this morning lol. great run! i have been cutting back on my heavy cardio too – i used to run 5 mi EVERY day and now i’m doing 3-4 hard cardio workouts a week and more rest days.

  2. ps i like the soup/breadstick idea for lonchi πŸ˜‰

  3. Keep reading blogs! If they have a “lunch” section or category, click on that and see what they’ve been eating for lunch. I almost always get inspiration from other bloggers. Sometimes I make the same dishes, while other times I modify or am just inspired by one element in their dish.

    Also – buy some new things that you’ve never tried!

  4. I do go through that. That’s when I flip through cookbooks or blogs for inspiration. Or just eat cereal and be lame about it!

  5. Pumpkin bagel sammich of lurve!!! Holy yum that looks good πŸ™‚ Sorry to hear about the food funk, I haven’t been through one in a while but I think any of those deelish lunch choices will help to get things back on track! Personally, the salad sounds good since our provided lunches this week are totally lacking in the veg dept and heavy on the carb/desserts…. I would LOVE to have a salad right about now πŸ™‚

  6. It is funny, as I’m reading this I ate 1/2 of the lunch I brought – wasn’t really feeling it, got some string cheese from vending machine that was kind of ick so I threw it away and now I’m sitting here with a Diet Dr. Pepper wondering what I’m going to eat! Ugh, annoying!

  7. I think you’ve probably already picked, but I would have gone with the build your own sammie πŸ™‚

  8. gosh i hate food ruts, but don’t worry girl you’ll snap out of it! try going to the store and looking around and maybe purchase something you’ve never had before and cook something new up!
