Spring?

Did you all have a beautiful Spring Equinox?

I wish I could say I did…but check out my bus stop this morning. -_- Yeah I know I should know by now that Spring in Seattle means rain…but I was really hoping for sun and warmth today! Maybe in San Diego?

Breakfast was yet again more Weetabix with thawed strawberries, toasted walnuts, and craisins. ❤ I wish I could become a Weetabix rep. I love this stuff!

My last day of my Writing about Food & Health class went fine. We turned in our short bios and the last drafts of our nutrition news pieces. Bleh. My least favorite piece. It’s probably one I won’t be sharing. Sorry, I really just needed more guidance on structure than what the teacher gave so I still have no idea on how it’s supposed to be written. Be on the lookout for my upcoming memoir piece though!

After class my friend Desiree and I hung out in the lunch room with some free snacks. I can’t say no to trail mix even when I’m not hungry. >.< I also got this amazing  “herbal coffee” made by Teeccino. This flavor was Vanilla nut and with a touch of honey and a splash of half and half it tasted better than coffee!

Unfortunately, both Desiree and I found that we had really low energy after drinking it. Perhaps our bodies were expecting the caffeine from it and when they didn’t get it they crashed? Really no clue. I wish these herbal teas had at least a green tea amount of caffeine!

Due to the trail mix, I wasn’t too hungry when lunch time came around. I waited around a good half hour after everyone started eating and then finally found something. No way was I going to take a final on an empty stomach!

The vegetable tacos with refried beans and a pinch of cheese actually tasted really good.

For a sweet treat, Desiree and I split a package of Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups then started our final exams in Nutrition Throughout Life. I think it went okay. I know I didn’t get 100% but definitely A/B.

I got home around 2pm and headed straight to the gym for a 60 minute hill stationary bike ride. I’ve been biking a lot because I have a few library books on my Kindle I need to get through!

After my workout my body was calling out for refueling. I knew I wanted dairy, peanut butter, and jelly. I thought about making toast but the bread part seemed unnecessary. Maybe a smoothie? Nope, I don’t got time to clean a blender! So instead I threw some jelly and peanut butter into the last of the cottage cheese…and it tasted amazing! Exactly what I wanted.

I spent the rest of the day forcing myself to study for my final exam, biochemistry. I think my brain is already on vacation though because unlike normal I am just not retaining all the reactions!

When Chase got home I threw together this really unappetizing looking meal. Leftover boiled cabbage and potatoes, pinto beans, and a piece of wheat toast with mozzarella. Yeah our fridge is looking really grim. Hey, I like to think this was better than the PB&J sandwiches Chase had!

For dessert I had a big glass of chocolate milk, and later, a lollipop. ❤

Anyway, I’m watching Chase play more Tomb Raider! I can always study more in the morning right? ~.^
