Sorry I was MIA last night! You’ll see why I had no time to post. =(
I started my day off with another green smoothie! I’m obsessed with these right now. They are so good I don’t even change up the ingredients though I know I should for more variety and to just play around with it. Spinach, yogurt, milk, frozen mango, frozen banana, fresh lemon juice, fish oil, and coconut oil. It makes about 1.5 of my little to go-cups and is sooo smooth, creamy, and refreshing.
Lunch at school was a bit disappointing. Nothing looked good, so I ended up with some cottage cheese, fresh fruit, like 3 nuts, and honey. It was actually really delicious!!
Though it didn’t hold me over for the rest of my last day of classes. Luckily I’d brought snacks of baked spiced chickpeas and dried apple chips. Later I ended up buying a small bag of Ludberg Rice Chips too. These Fiesta Lime ones were…interesting? They were sour and slightly sweet at the same time. I couldn’t, and still don’t know, if I liked them! They reminded me of rice crackers in Japan. Funky flavors.
As soon as my very last class of the quarter ended, my classmates and I headed to my Starbucks for our very last study session!
Which always starts with drinks and food of course. ~.^ I ended up with buying another Hearty Veggie and Brown Rice salad bowl and a tall chocolate chai tea latte. This time I tried it with cow’s milk…bleh. Chai’s for me have to be made with soy. While we went over folate and the methylation cycle (don’t ask), my co-worker and new bestie, Aaron, brought us over some samples(!) so I also had an unpictured bite of blueberry scone. ~.^ What a sweetheart.
Once we were all wrapped up and done I hit the gym for a 30 minute run, running along the some virtual, yet really beautiful parks in California. Love this feature!
When I got home I ate my advent calendar caramel and a few pieces of chocolate orange before forcing myself to bed. It was a long non-stop day!
Friday – today!
When I woke up I was pretty darn hungry so I ate an unpictured Strawberry Banana Chobani Champion tube to get my metabolism going. I really aught to force myself to take a photo because I almost forgot about it without the proof!
Like my new necklace? It’s Hello Kitty and yes I splurged and got it for myself. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep it but I keep getting such complements on it I think I have to! It looks good with all the black I wear at work. Ya know, for a pop of color!(Our aprons are now black too since we have the Evening Program.)
One of our regulars brought in some baked goods to share! I had a little bite of this peanut butter chocolately goodness with a double short ristretto Americano with a pump of hazelnut and a splash of breve.
On my 10 minute break I sipped down most of a double short ristretto soy chocolate chai tea latte. I didn’t finish it…in fact I hope it’s still sitting where I left it at work! As you can tell, I’m having a tough time figuring out what to drink lately. I know I need espresso to keep some pep in my step but I don’t really feel like it!
For breakfast I stuck to some Weetabix, banana, trail mix and half of this free Evolution Fresh Super Green juice. Mmm. Really love this one.
Around 10am I got my last break and surprisingly I was famished. There was free food in the partner box so I went ahead and tried this Cheese & Fruit Bistro Box. I ate 2/3 of the cheese, the crackers, and all the trail mix. The apples looked funky so I left them alone. I was surprised by how hungry I was! I sipped down water with it.
Surprisingly the day flew by and before I knew it it was time to go. My body felt exhausted…I think I haven’t been getting enough sleep. Feeling that I really needed to take it easy I moved my swim to tomorrow and grabbed a Venti Cool Lime Refresher with black tea and headed home.
And then Chase and I headed to Bellevue to do some shopping!
For Linner we hit up (you guessed it) Red Robin! And since it was about 3pm we got drinks. I tried their new moscato something drink…it was way overpowered with rum. Bleh. I drank it but I wouldn’t get it again!
For foods I went with the Whiskey River BBQ Gardenburger Wrap with sweet potato fries. I ate half there and half when at home later for dinner.
Shopping was fun but I really need to get my final Intuitive Eating paper done with and then worry about studying. >.< Yikes. Tomorrow?
Wanted to end with this:
