my less serious day: anxiety

Running out of breakfast supplies makes me nervous. On Sunday, I considered myself well supplied with (I kid you not) 7 boxes of cereal, 7 bananas, and 5 cartons of almond milk.

They tell me I have a generalized anxiety disorder, but I'm beginning to think it's cereal specific.


Tee & skirt: LOFT; necklace: gifted via Grandma; heels: Miz Mooz.


This morning I went on a 30-minute run at working pace. After work I kicked ass during a 60-minute Body Pump class. I also included two 10-minute walks with the poor and injured pup during the day.


My morning routine has changed a bit and I now have two bowls of cereal (one before my run and one afterwards). Today my first bowl (un-pictured) was a mix of Post shredded wheat, Earth Fare organic honey wheat puffs, 1/2 banana, and almond milk. My second bowl (pictured above) was a mix of Post shredded wheat, Kashi Indigo morning, 1/2 banana, and almond milk.

Lunch was a spinach salad with roasted red peppers, carrots, 1/2 avocado, feta cheese crumbles, agave nectar, and balsamic vinegar.

My afternoon snack was a peach and healthy peanut butter honey granola.

Dinner was wild mushroom couscous tossed with sauteed eggplant, grape tomatoes, garlic, and roasted cashews. Delicious!

Dessert was blueberries and more of Anna's healthy peanut butter honey granola (can't get enough!)

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Monday, July 23. 


  1. Love the workouts! Happy Friday!

  2. I love cereal, I don't buy a lot though because I go through boxes so fast!

  3. Yum!!! all of your meals always look delish!

  4. I have a bit of food anxiety too. you have certain things you need to have access to for a happy life - shelter, money to pay the bills, love...and ya know, cereal!

  5. Hey, you never want to run out of cereal ;) I feel that way about nut butter sometimes. It happens!

    You look gorgeous!

  6. I definitely get anxiety when I run out of certain foods too- nut butters are definitely the big one!

  7. Hahaha! You sound so much like me with avocados and romaine. I seriously will go out of my way to head to the store if I know I'm going to be out of either of those. When I want my salads, I want my salads :D

  8. Im exactly the same! I have a certain fear of running out of foods and my cupboards are absolutely bursting with stuff (I actually feel quite sorry for my mum! haha)


  9. I can relate to getting anxious about running out of certain foods... There are some foods I just "need" to have at home or elsewise,I feel uncomfortable all the time. In my case,it's cottage cheese/ yogurt,cereal,fruit and veggies!

  10. I can definitely relate to your food anxiety. I'm the same way with certain things (hummus, nut butter, and cereal specifically) It's kind of humorous, actually.
    Okay, that couscous dish looks phenomenal! And I've been eating peaches, nectarines, and plums like nobodies business. I love stone-fruit season! (:

  11. You work out a lot, are you training for something in specific? Your eats look delicious and cereal = YUM.

  12. Oh I feel ya..If I don't have a banana every mornings, It somehow throws me off the rest of the day. Many times, I've went to bed thinking, "i have one banana left so I can go to the store after my workout," only to find that the hubby got it before me! Ugh!! I made sure he got an earful! Now I've learned my lesson ;).
    I really need to make that granola! Looks awesome!
