All day I’ve had this empty stomach feeling – almost like I’m so hungry it hurts. I’ve had a pretty normal day of food though, with one abnormal craving thrown in.
Before lunch I knew all I wanted was a juicy hamburger, but I needed to go home and grab workout clothes, so I ended up eating a grilled turkey sandwich thinking it would cure my craving.
No such luck.
After a great sweat at Groove (I had to find this on You Tube – the Bodyworks instructors are nothing like that thank god), I came home to persuade Nick for a burger night-out. Not much persuading to be done though because I knew he would jump at the chance. I hardly ever request a hamburger.
We decided to go to Blue Sky. I’ve only been to the Lubbock location once before, but I’ve been to the one in Amarillo countless times. They have mouth-watering hamburgers and fries and a pretty neat Texas-style menu (think Frito pie and fried Anaheim pepper strips).
Their buns are the best part – toasted to perfection.
Nick twisted my arm into sharing an order of the cheese fries. We asked for a half-order, but I guess they thought we looked really hungry because we must have gotten a full order! This was bigger than my face!
Sometimes a night of hamburgers and cheese fries is needed. I definitely don’t have an empty stomach anymore.
Monday afternoon snack – SBD Protein PB bar with a kiwi. I ate the furry skin on the kiwi – the food blog world has opened my eyes. Before, I guess I always just thought it was bad to eat?! Maybe I thought it would kill me. It’s actually pretty tangy. Go ahead and eat the fur – you know you want to.
Today’s afternoon snack – Diet Dr. Pepper with 5 saltines smeared with PB. I was gonna add a grapefruit, but didn’t want to get the juice all over my desk. Perhaps tomorrow. I try to only have DDP twice a week, which is so much better than my once-a-day coke zero/diet coke addiction in college. Today I was dragging and it sounded good, so I went for it.
Who’s done their census!?
I wish the census had the following worthwhile questions:
– What’s your favorite color?
– Favorite day of the week?
– Animals in household?
– Do you have your dream job?
– Classify yourself as a vegetarian, vegan, flexitarian, pescatarian, raw foodist, or everythingtarian?
