Yesterday was really just an all-around bad day. I was tired, hungry, and stressed. The first two were mostly my fault. I had stayed up the night before trying to work on homework. I was so distracted that I ended up not getting anything done, so that was pretty much a waste. I was hungry because I didn’t eat anything until 3 yesterday. I had decided to try and fast because I’d eaten a lot the night before. Mostly mindlessly munching while I tried to do homework. That didn’t work out. I was already cranky from lack of sleep, but add no food to that and you end up with snappy and short-tempered, regardless of who you are.
So I came home and had a sweet potato with salt and pepper. That was before work. After work, I made a regular potato and took it with me to small group. And I’m certainly glad I did. Someone brought bread and sauce from La Gondola, and I was really tempted to just throw in the towel. Luckily for me, they brought strawberries, too, so I was able to content myself with those. But, oh man. Bread. Most of the reason why I did not end up eating any is because I was so tired that I fell asleep in the corner halfway through our discussion. Uh, whoops. My bad.
Today was better though. I didn’t have any school, so I was able to take some time to cook and work on homework. I made acorn squash soup from scratch, and let me tell you. It was the best thing I’ve had while on this diet, by far.
