I haven’t shown you all my hamster Boo-Boo in a long time! She’s kind of hard to photograph because even though she is the calmest hamster I’ve ever had she still moves a lot. She’s also the biggest hamster I’ve ever had! She’s seriously about the size of my Samsung Galaxy S2 phone!
Boo-Boo is the cutest thing. She loves to have her back scratched and when she gets it she stands rigid and points her tail and doesn’t want you to stop!
Okay enough motherly gloating…
Well oddly enough I managed to have a pretty productive and satisfying day. No, I’m not at all the master of biochemistry…but I feel less lost. ^_^
Breakfast started my day off right with a delicious batch of Kodiak Cakes topped with a little butter, a drizzle of maple syrup and almond butter, and a handful of fresh strawberries. Is it funny that I like my pancakes very thin? They taste better that way. I always have one pancake I prefer in my batch and it’s always the thinnest one. Most likely due to being less doughy and thus less bread like to my mouth. No wonder I love crepes!
Quick post because I’ve been spending my evening with Chase and not getting some stuff I need for school done!
Breakfast: Exact same as yesterday! Weetabix, banana, toasted almonds, craisins. I swear I’m going to get back to oatmeal soon but the ice cold milk feels so good on my scratchy allergy throat in the morning.
Thursdays always feel like my longest day. I get up early and go to school then by lunch I’m home saying hi to Chase and then I’m off to the food bank to stock shelves for two hours. Once that’s over I generally come home and pick up Chase and we go out and do something fun. By the end of the day I’m always shocked that it is still Thursday! And then I freak out that I didn’t fit in a workout. -_- So sometimes I just need to remind myself to relax. It’s my “Friday” night.
I think I’m going to move my rest days to Thursdays for this exact reason.
It was so nice to sleep in the
hour45 minutes this morning. Ophelia, though, was not impressed and therefore made me get up before my alarm to feed her. Why did I get to sleep in? Because I get the car on Thursdays! Woot!
At this lovely later time, the sun was out enough for better breakfast photos! =D Weetabix, fresh mango, craisins, and toasted walnuts. I’m in love with this little ataulfo mango I got in my CSA box! It’s soo juicy and fresh.
Wow. So Ripley is totally dead at the moment. I was able to restore her and start reinstalling programs only to find that she still wasn’t starting up correctly. At least now I can remove all my files to my external hard drive before I completely wipe her and start anew. So how am I posting this? Why by fishing my old laptop, Ivanka, out of the closet! This old Dell saw me through a lot and she still works…just slowly. ^_^ Hopefully tomorrow I will have the time to once and for all fix Ripley. ./fingers crossed
Anyway I don’t have my regular photo editing software so bare with me!
I started my day off with a big bowl of Greek yogurt mixed with Granola Chips, almond butter, blueberries, and toasted almonds. I think I could get hooked on yogurt bowls again with the right mix-in’s. However, probably cheaper if I don’t.
Having some computer issues so please forgive me that this post is so long over due!
It was so nice to have an actual laid-back weekend day yesterday. I slept until Vincent decided it was time for me to wake up (about 9:30am) and then made myself a simple bowl of Weetabix, fresh blueberries, craisins, ground flax, and toasted almonds. Sure I had time to make a hot breakfast, but I went with what I wanted instead.
Next up on my agenda was to finally get back to the gym! 60 minute hill stationary biking commenced and I was a sweaty mess by the end. It felt great!
Geez, new Sunday rule for me: Get up and workout! I took my time being lazy and I got so little done today it’s not funny. The whole day felt like I was moving in slow motion.
First off I had a nummy breakfast of Costco Greek Yogurt, ground flax, Granola Chips, fresh blueberries, golden raisins, and a spoonful of sunflower seed butter. That’s right folks, yogurt is back! I bought 2 cases, that’s 4 containers (32 oz.) of 0% Greek yogurt!
Then the babies and I sat around writing posts and catching up on biochemistry reading. At 1pm I was convinced to go take an one hour nap with those fuzz balls.
Yesterday turned out to be quiet a day and not one I expected at all.
I was up early in order to deliver trays before work. That’s right, I’ve switched my Monday night delivery to Saturday morning because I’m getting up anyway for work! Might as well get it done.
Before I left I had a marvelous bowl of, you guessed it, Weetabix, topped with fresh blueberries (yes, after writing that paper on their benefits I just couldn’t wait for their season any longer), ground flax, 1/2 bag NatureBox Cranberry Almond Bites, Wild Berry Bunch, and toasted pecans. Now that I’ve finished the first sleeve of Weetabix I swear I’ll try to make my breakfasts different and more interesting. ~.^
