Today wasn’t as productive as I would have liked.
I was up early at 7am since Ophelia decided that was the time I needed to get up. After waiting around a half hour, I figured out what I wanted for breakfast: PB&J “quesadilla” with a mug o’ milk. Need more PB&J in my life.
I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of my grandpa Harry, always known by me as Papa. He passed yesterday after a long and full life. I’ll always remember driving up to Idaho to visit him and my grandma when I was little. We’d get in the car and sing songs the entire way, play the humming game, and always stop for ice cream. My favorite thing to do at there little place on Pondera Lake was to go on Papa’s boat. Sometimes he’d let me drive it. =)
Goodbye Papa. I’m so glad you are finally at peace.
Today was a really great day. In fact, so great, that I’m worried I don’t have time to give it justice before bed, but if I don’t write I’ll forget all the amazing things about it!
Let’s see..on my first 10 minute break I had a ristretto double short Americano with one pump peppermint and some steamed soy. It was so so. To be honest our espresso machines have been worked on and they just don’t seem to produce the same taste anymore. Honestly I drink them because I need the caffeine.
I haven’t forgotten to post about Tuesday!! Just getting behind…already. -_-
Breakfast: whole wheat toast with crunchy peanut butter, one with pumpkin butter, one with huckleberry, and the very last of the 1% milk. =( I’m always sad when the milk runs out but at least I’m not wasting any!
Guys this post may seem a little negative…but I had a really bad experience!
The day started off well. My body woke up early and I got some homework done while waiting for the gym to open. I wasn’t feeling a swim so instead I did a wonderful 30 minute run on the treadmill. I’m really improving! The time was over before I knew it.
Once I got back home I made a smoothie with fresh spinach, frozen pineapple and mango, 1% milk, coconut oil, and fish oil. It was pretty tasty and I even got Chase to have some! Like my adorable little Halloween cup? It has a crazy straw built in. ^_^ It’s the perfect size, about 8 oz.
I love my job, but man does it wear me out. Studying and doing homework has really become a struggle.
I was up this morning at 3am with only 4 hours of sleep under my belt. x.x I was also hungry so I ate a Strawberry Banana Chobani Champion tube to get my metabolism moving.
Yesterday I finally found release from all the stress I’m under. Tell you about it shortly..food first. ~.^
First off I started my day with a bowl of Weetabix with half a pear, drizzle of sunflower seed butter, and some dried cherries.
Yesterday (my only day off) was spent with two very special birthday babies! That’s right, Vincent and Ophelia are now 6 years old! Both of them got new collars for their birthdays which, of course, you cannot see because they are so fluffy. -_- Vinni’s is Batman themed though and Ophie’s is black with white polka dots and frills. I’m so proud of my gentle giants!
Arg.I know I have time to write right now. I got up 30 minutes early and won’t have time tonight! But for some reason, the words just aren’t coming. Bear with me…
Yesterday morning I grabbed an apple to get my metabolism going at 4am. I managed to nibble on half of it and saved the rest for another day.
Ug. I am sorry this post about yesterday’s eats is so late. -_- I’ve been blowing my nose and feeling like crap all day long. =/ Let me try to remember yesterday through the haze…
Oh yeah! My Wednesday started off really really early (5am!) with a breakfast at Starbucks. You see I can get a free drink 30 minutes before my shift ^_^ and 30% off everything else so it cost me less than $2 for a doppio ristretto with hot water, one raw sugar, and half and half and an oatmeal with fresh blueberries and a fruit, nut, and seed medley. I’d never tried the new blueberry mix before, but I really love the fresh blueberries! The medley wasn’t that good and I really didn’t wanna touch the agave syrup, so next time I think I’ll just get the blueberries and the old nut medley.
Anyway while I slowly enjoyed my hot breakfast I read the most dense book for Advanced Nutrition Principles ever. I got through one page…
