Rainy Friends

I know it’s my own fault that my life is so go-go-go. But for some reason I’m having trouble changing that. Perhaps it’s because I’m afraid if I don’t hang out with people, I’ll lose friends fast (like in The Sims! Did anyone else grow up playing that game? It’s apparently scarred me for life.).

Well let me try to get you up to date, at least for Thursday.

Up early and had an old favorite: oatmeal with mixed berries and chia seeds cooked in and topped with a spoonful of peanut butter and dried cranberries. Mm! I always forget how much this satisfies me.

I thought about sitting around and doing some homework reading..then had this idea that I could do that reading on the bike!! Sadly, at that time in the morning, it takes double the time to get to my gym due to traffic. -_- So I only got in a 30 minute bike before I had to head back home to get ready for class. Oh well. Better than nothing!

Great Wheel

Ok guys, it appears that I need a break. =/ I just don’t even have time to cry so I don’t have time to blog then either! I wanted to show you my Sunday because it was pretty special but then I’m gonna be gone for at least a week.

Sunday started off with a lovely bowl of pumpkin oats topped with a spoonful of TJ’s Pumpkin Butter and craisins. Loved the warmth it brought me.

High to Low

So I had pretty much the most amazing morning…which I shouldn’t have! I got up at 6am, without any alarm and decided to relax.

DSC01241

So I made a bowl of pumpkin oatmeal topped with a spoonful of cashew butter, craisins, and maple syrup and ate it slowly in bed while I read my favorite book, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I ended up only eating 2/3 of the bowl, listening to my body.

Mini-Breakdown

Man days are just flying by. I can’t even remember what I told you all about yesterday. >.< Luckily I have a blog right? I can totally find out!

Ok so Monday started off with me suddenly wanting a hot breakfast. It’s funny how when I have a lot of time, like on Sunday’s, I normally don’t want one but when I have somewhere to be, I do! Well I managed to fit in a hot bowl of 8 grain hot cereal mixed with organic canned pumpkin, pumpkin spice, maple syrup, and dried cranberries. Loved it! I ended up needing some more texture though so later I added a small spoonful of chunky peanut butter.

Need a Moment

For some reason not exactly clearly known to me, I’m super stressed at the moment. Seriously, I couldn’t stop eating cheese and Wheat Thins after dinner even after saying how full I was. From my own experience, I know this has to do with stress. =/ So I’m just gonna do a wordless tonight. Thanks all! I need to go breathe.

A Really Long Day

Ug. I am sorry this post about yesterday’s eats is so late. -_- I’ve been blowing my nose and feeling like crap all day long. =/ Let me try to remember yesterday through the haze…

DSC01133

Oh yeah! My Wednesday started off really really early (5am!) with a breakfast at Starbucks. You see I can get a free drink 30 minutes before my shift ^_^ and 30% off everything else so it cost me less than $2 for a doppio ristretto with hot water, one raw sugar, and half and half and an oatmeal with fresh blueberries and a fruit, nut, and seed medley. I’d never tried the new blueberry mix before, but I really love the fresh blueberries! The medley wasn’t that good and I really didn’t wanna touch the agave syrup, so next time I think I’ll just get the blueberries and the old nut medley.

Anyway while I slowly enjoyed my hot breakfast I read the most dense book for Advanced Nutrition Principles ever. I got through one page…

San Diego Recap Day 1 – Ocean Beach

Wow, what a whirlwind of a vacation!! I really enjoyed taking the time off from blogging but now that I’m back I’m so excited to share everything, so let’s get started! ^_^

DSC00399

Our flight from Seattle left darn early on Thursday morning, so after a few hours of sleep at Waylon and Joey’s house, we were at the Sea-Tac grabbing a quick breakfast before the flight. I got a Perfect Oatmeal and mixed in the fruit and nut mix. Also enjoyed was a tall ristretto cappuccino. It was pretty yummy and filling! Did you know Starbucks has a blueberry oatmeal now? I didn’t! I wasn’t sure what all was in it so I opted for what I knew I liked, but sometime I wanna try it!

Restart

Even though it was back to the grind again, today turned out to be a pretty good day. No, I didn’t get to sleep in due to getting a phone call at 8am but it was still relaxing.

DSC00139 Since we had a bare fridge when we returned from vacation, my only option for breakfast was a steaming hot bowl of oatmeal cooked with 1/2 cup of Antioxidant Berry Blend and topped with a spoonful of homemade salted honey cashew butter. It took me over an hour to eat this bowl! Half way through I thought I was full, but then 20 minutes later I was famished! My stomach is being so strange now that it can feel again.
