Sorry this is a day late! Chase surprised me by wanting to spend all yesterday evening with me so we finished the whole season 7 of Dexter and nothing else. ^_^ It was nice.
My morning started with a really hot bowl of reheated oatmeal (1/3 cup raw old fashioned oats, 1 tbsp hot cereal mix) with unsweetened applesauce and cinnamon mixed right in. On top I drizzled almond butter and tossed on some raisins. It was certainly tasty but I had some issues with the temperature. It just warmed my body (already overheated from shower + blow dryer) too much. I hate being that sweaty when I’m trying to do my hair and put on makeup. =/ I either need to give myself more time to eat and cool off, thus getting up earlier or not have oatmeal until school’s out and I have time for it!
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…
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.
Yay another Monday over with. I am just counting down the weeks until school is out. I’m so ready to be done and have a break from all this go-go-go!
Breakfast was Weetabix, banana, raisins, and toasted almonds. Man I love Weetabix. Seriously, this company needs to make it’s American presence known better! It’s totally a hidden gem.
Some days you’ve just got to let go of the control or be dragged. That’s how I’m feeling right now. I also have a lab practical to study for so I’m going to try and make this post quick!
Well it’s Spring Break now! I had my last final (biochemistry) yesterday and I feel pretty decent and my whole quarter. I still am in a little shock that I survived it though. There were definitely times where I thought it would never end.
Since my exam wasn’t until 1pm, I was able to sleep in until about 9:30am. I then made myself breakfast: Weetabix, thawed frozen berries (cherries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries), toasted walnuts, and a sprinkle or raisins.
Well I didn’t wake up feeling 10x worse but I didn’t feel 10x better either. I did think about staying in bed all day because it felt so good to sleep but Chase reminded me how much I like making money so I dutifully crawled out of bed.
I thought about making a nice hot bowl of oatmeal to fill my tummy but only had the energy for my very last bowl of Weetabix mixed with 1/4 cup homemade granola, ground flax, and fresh blueberries. For those of you who were looking for Weetabix, if you can get the Weetabix USA website to load, I couldn’t, there will be a Locate option where you put your zip code in!
I was hoping that when I woke up this morning I’d be on the mend from this cold I apparently caught. Alas though it was not to be.I definitely only got worse today.
I managed to sleep in until 10:30am though! Finally my stomach forced me out of bed to eat. I grabbed a simple bowl of Weetabix topped with ground flax, 1/2 banana, fresh blueberries, toasted almonds, and golden raisins. I ended up eating the other half of the banana with a little bit of sunflower seed butter as well.
I feel so much better about today than yesterday. I appreciate all of your comforting comments though and agree, maybe I’m being a bit hard on myself.
Today I woke up hungry and knew exactly what I wanted to break my fast with: Kodiak Cakes topped with Cookie Butter and craisins plus a mug of milk. Super chewy and flavorful. It felt like eating cake without the over the top sugariness.
After doing some Anatomy & Physiology studying, I hit the gym for a 60 minute hill stationary bike ride. I did a whole bunch of abs and arm work last night while I was watching TV so I was too sore for strength training today.
Okay this cracked me up: If Disney made Star Wars
I’ve had it stuck in my head all day! Chase is a huge Star Wars fan. Anybody else? I think the whole saga is alright, but I grew up being pretty afraid of it all. =P Yes, I was a very scared little girl. Whenever I did let my sister choose a scary movie, we always had to follow it with Care Bears or something so I could sleep that night.
