So, I'm late. Which, in my pre-baby life was pretty normal. In fact, it lead to many post-pregnancy sobfests, but I've been pretty regular since we had the kid so it kind of freaked me out a bit. I'm definitely not ready for a second, yet. I woke up really, really tired and nauseous, which means no gymtime for moi. Don't worry, I'm merely getting back on my effed up cycle.
The problem remains, that I feel kind of garbage-y. Since I'm eating super-healthily I think there are a few things that could possibly be wrong: One, I psyched myself out about the possibility of being pregnant and thus pregnancy symptoms (also known as how I spent the last few years of my life); Two, I'm not eating enough calories and my blood sugar was low; Three, I have a touch of the flu; Four, I'm not getting enough sleep; or finally, it's just a fluke.
I took a two hour nap with the baby and that seemed to help immensely. I'm betting on a combination of two and five. I fall asleep by eleven, but waking up at five and then exercising and eating about 1400 calories a day will take its toll on you. So, on the days where I wake up early to exercise, I'm going to make sure that I get a nap, at least a half hour. For right now, that shouldn't be problematic, since the wee one goes down for a couple of hours in the mid-afternoon. I'll see if that helps before upping the calories.
I seriously struggled today, so was glad to have leftovers packing the fridge. That tofu scramble got me through the morning on a couple pieces of toast, and I stood over the sink wolfing down leftover spaghetti around 1. I should have taken a snack w/ me grocery shopping, as that always wears me out, but, I effed up.
Did you know you can dry fry tofu? It's pretty much the best thing ever. Sure, it lead to me setting off the smoke alarms in my apartment (I'm just glad I didn't set them off for the whole building), but I kind of think it was worth it. Had I just had the heat down a little bit when I added the soy sauce (and maybe added a little veggie broth, too) I wouldn't have had the problem. You basically cut the tofu into little cubes and just toss it in a pan that has a little non-stick spray in it. It gets all crispy along the edges, and when you coat it in the sauce. Well, your house might sound a little porn-y with all the moans of deliciousness.
