…Let’s get it poppin… I’m in Miami Trick?
I wish I were in Miami right about now. Please try not to judge (too hard) the fact that this is my new favourite song.
Weekend highlights included: work, study, eat, sleep, study, eat, treadmill, study.
I promise I won’t be such a complainer in just over a week’s time.
Breakfast was one of those ‘little bite of this, little bite of that’ things. I was throwing together my lunch for work and ended up snacking on raw veggies and squash in the process. I was going to make myself a bowl of oats but the veggers triggered the savoury buds so instead I threw some leftover tuna into half a pita and a somewhat structured brekkie was born.
Want a bite?
Dipped in coffee perhaps?
No? Okay, moving on then.
The first tiny bite I tried tasted a wee bit strange. But the second bite was perfection, and every bite after that was ever-growing perfection. This bar is amazing. It has chocolate chips in it.
I am only disappointed in the fact that I’ve only ever seen these at one small health food store. I need to try more of these asap. They have a chocolatey chocolate chip flavour!
For lunch I had a raw veg/squash/baked tofu bowl. Why do people find it so strange to eat mushrooms raw? They’re rawesome! Hardy har har.
I also had an apple and my brother’s pizza crust. It was oh so doughy.
Dinner was Chinese.
Blah. Definitely not my choice. I had a pre-sodium-fest plate of healthier fare:
Squash, tomato, baked tofu.
As for the grease feast, I had a bit of rice and then just picked veggies out of the various dishes. I tried to stick mainly with the awesome garlic broccoli. I may have accidentally dug into the lemon chicken container a couple times. Sometimes my hands just work at their own free will!
And then there was night. And studying and lots of ranting and maybe a tear or two because sometimes that just needs to be done, and then I was into bed at a half decent time because that sometimes really just needs to be done.
Breakfast was shared with the lovely morning sunlight after a good long sleep (which I desperately needed). I had a small bowl of blended oat bran made with liquid whey (strained from some plain yogurt), unsweetened chocolate almond breeze and banana, topped off with a chunk of PB2 mixed with SF maple syrup as per Erin’s suggestion. Deeelish.
I finally managed to get in a good treadmill run. I had done nearly nothing in terms of exercise Friday or Saturday and my mood and body were definitely missing it. I just didn’t have the energy for it though. It was one of those “Exercise? Not a chance” kinda times. I did go for a long and ranty walk on Saturday night with my mom though, which was much needed, and I did my 100 reps both days. I’m continuing them into the month of April since I just love em so darn much (sometimes…).
Anyway, I spent my Sunday studying (whoopie) with plenty of breaks for food and nail filing in between.
During lunch study break I made a big giant salad topped with leftover chinese veggies and some tempeh. This salad was just a little too fiberific though. My tummy wasn’t diggin it.
For dinner I was feeling fish, so we made some Parmesan-breaded Sole, inspired by Bobbi’s recipe.
These were sole fillets coated in lemon juice and a mixture of whole wheat cracker crumbs, garlic powder, Mrs Dash and parmesan cheese. So easy, so good. I had seconds.
Later on during my study sesh I had an iced coffee. But then I felt actual hunger (not ‘I’m studying and want to procrastinate’ snacky hunger) so I had a bowl of pumpkin, cinnamon and vanilla soy protein powder.
Then my friend contacted me last minute and decided I should break from my studying to go to Sunday night Retro at our local sketch bar. Hmm…Studying all weekend… didn’t go out Friday or Saturday… sick and tired of sitting… no classes Monday…I couldn’t refuse.
Unfortunately when we finally made our way to the bar (around midnight), there was a huge line up. When that bar has a line up it means it’s at capacity and there is not a chance of us getting in anytime soon. So instead we booked it over to a jam-packed little Irish pub down the way and listened to live music while munching on greasy poutine and drinking beer. I didn’t do much of either of the last two activities since I was driving and wasn’t hungry. Of course I had to try a few fries though. My pumpkin bowl was tastier. I also did some good old people watching ;) Then my friends decided they were bored about an hour later and wanted to go back to my one friend’s house. Short attention spans, geez. So we went and chatted there for another hour or so until I finally got home and rolled on into my own bed around 3. It was actually a pretty decent way to end a weekend of lameo studying so the weekend didn’t turn out completely dull.
Today, however, I woke up to snow.
Then I double checked the calendar to make sure it was actually April instead of February. It was. I was miffed. I made thought about making multiple harassing calls to the weather man. Because clearly he’s to blame.
I will admit though, this IS perfect stuck-inside-studying weather. Speaking of which, I guess I should get back to it now!
