So here we have yet another post of back logged days. I really need to keep up with this instead of writing novel-length posts when I miss days. I could easily have updated yesterday as I did nothing but sit around for the majority of it, but I always upload and write on my laptop and I was using my pc all day and I didn’t feel like turning on the laptop. Yeah, that’s how lazy I was yesterday. So here we have another excessively long post. I apologize in advance. And again, I’ll try to keep un-wordy because of the overabundance of meals to cram into it.
Also a heads up: There seems to be quite a few leftovers eaten over the course of the last three days by me. I’m trying to get rid of all of the random foods I have lying around that I’ve made or whatever lately before getting or making new stuff. I’ve almost completed this seemingly lengthy task.
Breakfast: I bought a new yogurt the other day, made of goat’s milk. Never tried goat’s milk yogurt before so this was breakfast. Fairly nice texture but nothing overly special. Mixed with frozen mango chunks.
I might have had some strawberries or watermelon after dinner but I can’t remember. And then I went out for a FINALLY good, not flop of a night of dancing. Just all fun the entire time. I was doubting that was possible anymore for a little while. What a relief.
Hello greatly lazy, do nothing day.
Then I found this danger in the freezer. I had no idea there was any of this left.
Haagen Daaz. The fully fatty, delicious kind. I dug in. With a fork so my bites were small so I didn’t actually have that much. But I’m probably kidding myself and ate a lot more than I thought I did. Oh well.
Dinner: Spaghetti and meatballs. Made with whole wheat rotini instead of traditional spaghetti. I topped in on spinach because it just seemed like a good idea. And I kind of liked eating it together. Maybe next time I’ll wilt the spinach. I had one meatball. I also ate a lot more pasta than shown here because some was straight from the pot. AND a lot more garlic bread than that because I just did.
I have no idea if I ate anything else after this. I don’t think so. Maybe a couple strawberries.
First day back to SCHOOL. Yikes. It was fine though because I only had two short classes. One from 10:30-11:20 and then one from 4:00-5:20, but it ended at 4:30 because all we really had to do today was discuss the course outline.
I think school will be fairly good this year. I still have four days left of courses that I haven’t been through yet though so we’ll see how those go. But the first two seem alright. Not too fond of the big gap in between classes on Mondays, but at the same time I was able to go home, get a workout, shower and lunch in, then go shopping with a friend before heading to the next class. So maybe that large break will be nice for getting stuff done.
After getting home from my first class I treated myself to a lovely iced coffee/light hot chocolate. Look at how it just glows in the sunlight. Best post class snack.
Must have done a great job at giving me an energy kick too because I did my treadmill workout right after this and I was just plowing ahead. I had planned on doing a fairly fast paced run for the beginning, and then switching between slower running and incline speed walking or something along those lines, but I ended up keeping up my faster pace for over double my intended time and I still wasn’t overly tired! I should begin all my treadmill sessions with a nice, big coffee ;)
Then I decided to make myself an Iced TEA using my Magic Bullet iced coffee method. This was decent but definitely no match to the iced coffee. I also added quite a bit less ice, and yet it ended up much icier/chunkier anyway. Weird. Kinda fun to “eat” though.
Right before heading out for some shopping I had a chunk of one of the tastiest granola bars ever, one that we bought during our health food store trip the other day. I have no idea of the ingredients or nutritionals (unfortunately), but it’s sooo tasty. And I’m quite sure it’s all natural too, being as how it’s made right in the all natural health food store…
Dinner: I took the rest of my leftover refried bean/salsa soup from the other night and stirred in some leftover sweet potato from Saturday’s dinner, plus threw in some spinach. Tasty. It mainly tasted like sweet potato.
Then there was some ugly leftover spaghetti (definitely had more than this as I ate a few forkfuls cold out of the container – this was just the heated stuff) and some cabbage slaw with feta and sweet onion dressing.
This settled the hunger, but not the sweet craving. So I had a bite of a less than impressive chocolate chip cookie, some gelato straight from the container and some toffee candy thing. Now I’m pretty full.
I can’t believe I have school again tomorrow. I’m definitely not in the “school mind set” yet. This could take a while…
