The blog is constantly getting the back burner. Mainly because of school work. Everything is really starting to kick in in terms of tests, midterms, due dates etc etc and I’m now realizing that I’m just a bit further behind than I should be.
So in trying to balance completing a decent amount of school work, friend hang outs/obligations and exercise (because really, right now that is taking high priority – all this studying and reading is causing me to be sitting on my butt much of the time and I’ve also been in a snacky and sweets mood the past several days… terrible combo so the exercise is a must) I’ve ignored the updating.
In ignoring the updating I’ve also ignored the picture taking. Not completely, I do have pictures of some of my meals and whatnot, but many have been either quickly thrown together and inhaled almost as fast or eaten on the go, at school etc. No pictures in these instances. So mainly I’ve captured breakfast because that’s always eaten at home. I wake up nice and early to ensure it :)
Anyway, in my last post I mentioned that my grandparents were visiting and there was this CAKE for dessert. I captured the remainders on camera. Want to know how long this crazy large amount of cake lasted? I think one day. Want to know where the majority of it went? Into my stomach. I wish I was exaggerating, I really do. I have a decent amount of self control when it comes to most things. But not to cake. I don’t know what it is about cake. But cake is my kryptonite. Cake leftovers to be exact. I can’t cut a piece of cake, plate it and be satisfied. I know, “just do it” right? Cut it, walk away, eat it, be done. But that does nothing for me. I need to pick at the giant cake with a fork. That’s the only way I can eat and enjoy it. Damn you cake.
My family did eat some, I swear. I just ate more.
Funny enough I don’t feel as guilty about it as I thought I would. Probably because I know it’s completely gone now and I won’t be again having cake or probably any dessert nearly as indulgent in a long while, just because we never really have them around. So it’s one of those once in a blue moon things. What’s done is done. And my tummy isn’t too too jiggly after the instance. Bahaha.
That same day (this was two days ago I think), I paired this cake (which contributed to my breakfast) with a bowl of Weetabix mixed with pumpkin and I think yogurt. And/Or almond milk. Maybe some spices or something. I don’t really remember.
I kept lunch nice and light with a big bowl of salad that also included leftover roasted veggies from the other night’s dinner. Well that part of the lunch was light. The other half of the lunch was cake. Duh.
Yeah, I ate cake probably 3-4 times that day.
The next day (yesterday) apparently all I “ate” was a protein powder smoothie.
That’s a lie because I never go a day without eating multiple times. And I ate lots that day. But I didn’t get any pictures. Probably because it was a long school day. Thursdays are brutal.
BUT I DID have… the COCONUT CREAM LARABAR.
I thought I was indifferent to Larabars. I could take or leave them. I was proved very wrong.
…is pure gold in a white wrapper. I am going back to the grocery store and buying their entire stock. This is Larabar perfection. I have renewed faith in Larabars as a delicious snack.
Banana slices dunked in a mix of citrus vanilla yogurt and cinnamon raisin peanut butter. Sooo good. Paired of course with an iced coffee. I wasn’t exactly warm this morning but an iced coffee was just calling out so it had to be done.
Then, instead of studying I did some treadmill running.
Had this unphotogenic pumpkin protein smoothie. My camera’s focus was being very uncooperative with me for this very orange-y mush. Who knows why.
And updated this here blog.
Now I should study. But I want to make some din din instead. Imma cook up some couscous. Mmm. I’ll try to actually do a decently timed update soon instead of waiting a few days.
BUT… tomorrow I work during the day and then at night I am CELEBRATING OKTOBERFEST. I’ve already got my outfit and green cap with feather. This is my first time celebrating. It’s a big deal around here since this is a German town and it’s a German celebration. I’m anticipating much beer consumption. I’ll see if I can manage to capture some good pictures from the event. ;)
And of course this is Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. So Monday is a holiday. So Sunday night there will be some sketchy bar Phil’s Retro epic-ness to celebrate as well.
In conclusion, maybe I won’t get an update in as soon as I would like. Oops. But I’ll try :P
