So here is a snapshot of my day yesterday with the Herbalife and the theatre and such:
Woke up at 7:45am – 15 minutes to get ready and get out the door for work…I had pre-prepped my shake so all I had to do was add water and blend and get on the road.
Shake Recipe: mango yogurt, peach jam, egg, baby spinach, cinnamon, Vanilla Formula 1 Powder
Verdict: Pretty yum, but very sweet…would probably reduce the amount of peach jam
Snack at 11am – handful of mixed nuts as my tummy was getting rumbly before Lunch. Also had a cup of the Herbalife instant tea in here at some point. Definitely satisfying and wasn’t crazy starving or anything at any point
Lunch 1pm – Turkey sandwich, macaroni salad, cranberry sauce…finished about ¾ of the sandwich and the monster got the better of me! I am glad I didn’t cave to my urge to also get soup…Those sandwiches are a city of meat unto themselves!
Snack at 4pm – more mixed nuts, more tea. Honestly wasn’t terribly hungry, just wanted something munchy
Dinner at 6:30pm – Shake on my way to the theatre, also took an aloe juice to the theatre and sipped on it throughout the evening. I like nomming on the little bits of aloe leaf, feels like a natural bubble tea!
Shake Recipe: Banana yogurt, pumpkin, egg, spinach, cinnamon, 3 dates (for natural sweetness), handful of chocolate chips, Chocolate Formula 1 powder
Verdict: Very tasty, but the chocolate chips didn’t blend well and ended up clumping and blocking the straw L probably wouldn’t use them again.
Snacks at 11pm and 3am – so I was at the theatre for callbacks and casting discussions until after 2am, and needless to say my little shake had worn offity off! Fortunately I brought some cheese sticks with me to the theatre, so I ate 2 cheddar cheese sticks then and made myself 2 cheese quesadillas with salsa on corn tortillas when I got home. Probably too much cheese, should get myself some mixed nuts or fruit for home so I can have more balanced snacks like I do at work. The sensitive lotus flower that is my stupid stomach wasn’t thrilled this morning but I don’t know what triggered it since I made so many changes all at once yesterday (Herbalife shakes, pills, aloe juice, metric fuckton of cheese, etc.)
I got home around 2:30am and had my snack, almost fell asleep in the living room, got my lazy butt in the shower, prepped my shake for the morning and got to sleep around 4am. Do you want to know what is a very sad sight? The notification from your phone that your alarm is set for 3 hours from that point – it made me want to cry but the life of a temp means losing 20% of my week’s pay because I want to sleep just isn’t the grown up or responsible thing to do. So what if occasionally when typing an email I end up with a mysterious row of R’s typed across the screen where I dozed off while typing? Caffeinate…hydrate…crash like a beast tonight.
