It’s that time of week again, so here be another WIA[Yesterday]. Yesterday was an absolutely terrible day, so there was a lot of comfort eating – no day is the same!
Breakfast/05h30: banana and coffee. I woke up earlier than I needed to because a lady was coming to see one of our cats. She wanted to adopt her on the spot, but circumstances prevailed and the idea was to get Blitz (Pumba) to her later on (which didn’t happen anyway). Either way, I can’t face anyone on an empty stomach.
2nd breakfast/08h00: 1 slice toast, 1 tsp tahini, 1/4 small avocado, 2 slices watermelon, 1/2 cup butter beans. 100% comfort food after the kittens wouldn’t eat their food. I usually don’t ever eat watermelon, since it’s not great for blood sugar, but I got it from my parents and it was actually delicious beyond measure. Teatime/10h00: 1 slice lemon curd cake – it’s a secret cake, but I’ll share it on the blog soon!
Lunch/14h00: 1 ramekin steamed pumpkin and green beans + 1 gherkin. Pretty boring but wasn’t too hungry and had a friend over for coffee, which kept me going.Dinner/18h00: Half a cheese-free veggie pizza. After stopping at the vet we decided to eat something to miss the worst of the traffic. Even if non-dairy cheeze were to be available in South Africa I don’t think I could ever go back to cheezy pizza. Pre-bed/21h00: 1/2 cup soy milk + 1 TBSP flax powder, 2 carrots. Some frozen papaya and NuNaturals Cocoa Mint Syrup. After months of postal strikes I finally got my awesome free samples that were posted in JULY. Stupid postal service! Awesome NuNaturals! Anyway, after this horrible day finally getting to taste the cocoa mint syrup was just a soothing balm. So flippin tasty! I can’t wait to experiment with my awesome products when I get a life again.
Ag, and then our heartbreak of the day. We lost 5 foster kittens yesterday to fading kitten syndrome, so in total 7 of our nine are now gone. These cats were just amazing beyond measure and were so special to us, but despite force feeding and hydrating two for almost a week, and watching our tabbies go backwards in the space of a day, it’s just a bit much, and hence the comfort eating.
We had planned to adopt one, and we even got her a collar tag, a little house and everything, but I guess this is the way of things. We have one very lonely fluffy ginger left, who was crying the whole night long for his siblings, and that was the most heartbreaking of all!
Anyway, I’ll be back soon enough with more recipes, but for the moment we’re going to take some time for ourselves just to recover our balance and carry on with our lives. We’ve been so busy medicating six times a day that we haven’t done anything for ourselves like go to the gym (my stretchy pants are a life saver) or go hang out with friends (Man-thing’s warhammer collection is getting dusty), so I guess now is the time to spend with each other and work on our sanity and health.
