Yesterday was pretty brutal for me in that my serious lack of sleep over the weekend kept me feeling completely drained all day.
However I still managed to fit a shopping trip with a friend into the afternoon, where I spent nearly $200 on clothing, underwear and earrings. Stupid sales! I just can’t resist them. Actually they aren’t stupid at all, I love them. But I really didn’t need to spend that much. But most of it was spent at Old Navy and I’m sure you all know just how great their sales can be… I think I’m going to be returning a couple sweaters, but regardless I’m still keeping at least 4 more. Oh how I love clothes. Eep.
I had intended to get some serious reading done after shopping but it was already dinner time by the time I got home and I was so completely dead after that that I decided to forget about the work and go to bed. Yes, I was in bed, lights out by about 8:30. The last time I was in bed that early was probably in elementary school. It needed to happen though and for the first time in a week I managed to wake up this morning without having to drag myself out of bed. It was wonderful.
In terms of my eating yesterday, it was generally quite poor. I was pretty much just constantly snacking and craving many sweets. I did manage to cram in plenty of fruits and some veggies, but there was also some chocolate cookie binging and the like going on. Because of the snacking, I missed out on photographing most of it. I caught a few piccies though.
A mixed cereal and yogurt bowl
The eggnog syrup I mentioned finding the other day on sale. It was from the same series of syrups as the gingerbread syrup I got a little while back. I like this one better though, and it actually tastes like eggnog! I had some with my coffee.
And then some frozen mango, vanilla yogurt and unsweetened almond milk Magic Bulleted and eaten. I also stirred in some vanilla protein powder after because I wanted a little more flavour. The frozen mango I used was pretty terrible and unsweet. Blah.
Then I had some tea and hit the hay for that long, lovely night of sleep catch-up.
This was accompanied by a lovely cold that I seem to have developed in the past day. I’m quite sad about this as I was so proud of myself for having avoided any colds this season so far. But I guess it had to happen eventually right? So I’m trying to load up a bit on the fruits and such, most especially the clems. Mmmm.
Then I went to two morning classes, ate an apple during my hour break while trying to start on my readings finally… then went to a two hour lab for my info processing course I have to take, then finally HOME time.
First things first, I made a gigantor salad while chugging down some hot green tea. I don’t drink this often enough because every time I do I always realize how much I love it. I should just get into the habit of drinking it every day. Maybe instead of coffee? Aha, don’t think so.
I also had a small slice of rye with homemade hummus, but that was eaten much too fast to take a picture of.
Now my plans for the night include getting in a good treadmill run (haven’t done that in two days, oops!) and lots and lots of textbook reading and note-taking. Plus hopefully another slightly earlier bed time tonight, I think I still have a teeny bit more catch-up to do.
