With three weeks left in the semester (before finals), the work is definitely comin’ in buckets and my schedule has been insane…hence the very little posting. I’m going to do the best I can and at least attempt to post about the new things that I try/have tried. Look out for some new stuff this evening 🙂

It’s a wrap!

After lounging around for a bit, I decided to hit the gym. Since I don’t trust my knee to run yet, I hopped onto the elliptical for 50 minutes. I’m really not a huge fan of the elliptical but it’s better than nothing and much less of a production than swimming, which I wasn’t in the mood for today.

When I was done with the gym I was walking home thinking about what I wanted for lunch when I realized I haven’t had my lovely veggie wrap in such a loooong time. It feels like it’s been forever! So I decided to stop at the sandwich shop and pick one up for lunch…filled with all my usual and favorite sandwich toppings: lettuce, tomato, green peppers, onions, banana peppers, sweet peppers, and mustard (lots…the person making my sandwich had a very heavy mustard hand). I also had a nice juicy apple on the side. I have to say that it definitely hit the spot; it’s hard to go wrong with any type of sandwich.

I’m baaaack. I admit that I fully intended to post yesterday but I was rarely home and I completely forgot to grab my camera on my way out the door…so pictures and posting didn’t happen. But it’s the thought that counts 😉

I’m enjoying a nice slow Saturday because I am excruciatingly burned out. I woke up at 8:00, flipped on the TV, and watched Nigella Express while enjoying a new oatmeal concoction: 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1 tbsp. wheat germ, and 2 tbsp. chopped walnuts. I was worried that it wouldn’t be sweet enough and I’d have to add in some honey or sugar, but it tasted delightful on its own. I’m sure that has something to do with the fact that I love, love, love walnuts and anything to do with walnuts. I also had a small mug of mango-peach V8 splash; I’m not a huge fan of it and it kinda looks radioactive to me but I bought it a while ago and I need to finish it up before the end of the semester.

Lazy lunch

I had planned on heading to the dining hall for lunch but when it started raining, I decided against it. Walking anywhere in the rain is just not fun so I avoid it when I can. Thankfully I had some lunch-worthy things in my refrigerator so I really didn’t have to worry about going out in the gross weather. I ended up having a veggie burger, Kashi crackers,  a nectarine (which was mealy and not very tasty….blech), and green pepper strips with roasted garlic hummus.

It’s been an extremely lazy day…the complete opposite of yesterday, it seems. I did 35 minutes of yoga this morning and did some reading for psychology but otherwise I’ve just been relaxing and watching the Food Network. I really don’t like being this lazy but I really needed a day like this. I’ve been so stressed out lately that I had to stop and take a rest.

An oatmeal kind of morning

Although I really dislike rain and grey-ness in general, there’s just something about gloomy weather that makes oatmeal so incredibly enjoyable. I made myself some banana-wheat germ oatmeal this morning, which is something that I haven’t had in quite a food days because of my wacky schedule and lack of bananas to make it with. It feels good to be back to normal…despite the fact that I’ve been having to use quick oats rather than old fashioned rolled oats. When I noticed my grocery store snafu I was pretty frustrated with myself but it turns out that quick oats are not that unbearable. They become much thicker and “oatmeal-like” about them when they’re cooked in the microwave. So, not all is lost 🙂

Now I’m off to workout and do some homework.

Fraises et fromage

It’s been a heck of a long, stressful day. And to be honest, my eating was quite mediocre. Lunch was a large whole wheat roll, a banana, and chickpea salad (chickpeas, cucumbers, feta cheese, tomatoes, olive oil, and assorted herbs). Afternoon snack was chocolate covered pretzels and some pita chips. Talk about hearty and nutritious eating today 😉 My “dinner”/nighttime snack was some sliced strawberries on top of a huge serving of ricotta cheese…so incredibly delish.
