Chase and I had such a relaxing time last night just spending time with each other. No computers, no workout, nor did I have the energy to blog. Completely disconnected from the world. We also fell asleep pretty darn early. We’re getting old!
Or maybe it had to do with waking up at 4am…I threw together this quick bowl of cereal: Apple Crumble Love Crunch mixed with Kashi 7 Grain Rice Puffs, ground flax, and craisins. Followed by 1.5 miles of walking in the rain.
I am still on the search for “my drink” at Starbucks. It needs to be cheap (cause I get a drink every time I work), delicious, and reasonably healthy. The brewed coffee didn’t wow me so I decided to try something I’ve never ever had before. Hell I didn’t even know what it was before starting at Starbucks!
An Americano is just shots of espresso mixed with hot water. Simple right? I got a short (meaning one shot) with a Sweet N Low mixed in. I added a splash of half and half on top too and enjoyed it alongside my Open Nature Cherry & Dark Chocolate granola bar.
Verdict? Meh. It was alright. I don’t think it’s my go to drink since it got cold before I had time to drink it. I need to stick with drinks that get free refills so I can just get a new one when I have time to drink.
It was sure windy on my walk home! When I got in the door though I was able to hold off eating lunch for a little bit. Still didn’t make it till noon but oh well. I heated up a portion of “bacon”, butternut squash, and polenta casserole with some canned corn. This casserole was really a miss with me. >.< Even drizzling it with maple syrup doesn’t really help anymore.
Still hungry and needing a sweet, I ended lunch with a toasted English muffin with Cookie butter and raspberry jam. With a glass of milk, of course. ^^ Damn was it good!
I really considered skipping class but found myself at my bus stop anyway. It was a boring lecture in which I did my best not to fall asleep but I could tell the professor noticed I was half there. Still, I was the only one to answer questions so I think I’m still on his good list.
Once I returned home again I knew I needed something to keep me going. Yay for small bowls of fat-free popcorn and diluted orange juice! It gave me just the energy I needed for…
..trying to prepare for my genetic transformation lab tomorrow! Except Ophie didn’t feel like it.
So I started taking pictures of her to get her to move. ^_^ Works every time. Isn’t she pretty?!
For dinner Chase instructed me to buy cheap but decent frozen pizzas at Safeway. I ended up getting a great deal on the Safeway brand, two for $7! They didn’t have any vegetable ones so I fixed that by buying a bag of frozen veggies, thawing a cup, and sprinkling it on my cheese pizza before baking! It turned out delicious and I was really impressed with the Safeway brand. Preferred over Domino’s any day!
Anyway I’m sorry this is a day late but last night was needed! I promise to be back tonight. ~.^
Do you ever take an evening to be completely unhooked from others/electronics?
