Distilling

I had one of those days that just seemed to drag by. Seriously, I felt sooo tired all day long.

I started with stumbling out of bed and hitting the gym for a 30 minute treadmill interval run at 1.5 incline. As tired as I am in the morning, I love getting my workout over and done with. It just takes one bar of stress off my shoulders.

After showering, pumpkin overnight oats were in order topped with almond butter and craisins. Devoured.

I tried to drink a mug of Sumatra bold coffee with creamer during my Whole Foods Production class but the acidity of the coffee really made my stomach sick.

For lunch today we made: cheesy cheddar polenta (1.5 eaten), Hoppin’ John (Cajun vegetable and black-eyed peas), and braised kale (with garlic and lemon. I couldn’t eat these at all….they tasted fishy too me!).

I did fit in three of these lemon raspberry thumbprint cookies Danae made!! They were sooo good. Totally worth eating three.

Since I had Ochem lab tonight and was therefore at school until 7pm, I ate a snack of ants on a log around 3pm! Mmm mm. Plus I got to talk to my sister on the phone for the first time in a month!

In lab we distilled clove oil! It was a pretty intense process.

Once I was done in lab I was way ready for dinner. Reheated Oktoberfest gardenburger, sweet potato fries (dipped in blue cheese dressing…don’t ask but it’s amazing), and a big spinach salad with herb goat cheese, cucumber, leeks, and balsamic dressing.

I really needed to relax so for dessert I had a few small pieces of Chocolove Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate (one of my favorites by the way) and a glass of my (used to be) favorite wine, Castle Rock Petite Sirah. Yep, I feel a little better.

Tonight I’m vegging on the couch with my babies and watching TV. I’ll study more tomorrow. Night!
