Thanks to all of you lovelies for the comments on the new header, the NYE dress and my arms? Haha. The arms are compliments my ten pounders, the odd push ups and planks and a little bit of Jillian Michaels as of late. The header is compliments my (not so) extensive high school graphics skills.
So holidays are OVER. Why oh why?!
I wasn’t looking forward to going back to school but it’s been two days and we’re doing okay. I’m really hoping for some smooth sailing this semester and really aiming to get less stressed than I did last semester. I tend to let myself get really stressed about school, probably a little too much so at times. Maybe I should take up some yoga? Meditation? More baths? I’m thinking all of the above.
This semester three days of my week start early. Today was an 8:30er. Happy joy. I started it off with a quick packet of low sugar maple oats with pumpkin stirred in. Plus plenty o’ cafe necessaire.
I plowed through class one and booked it home for some school note printing, a treadmill sweat sesh and a lot of snacking on chocolate (I still have quite the holiday stash), the biggest bag of Cheddar Popchips I’ve ever seen (thanks Costco)…
…and a handful or two of Goldfish CRACKers. En francais s’il vous plait.
Class two of the day lasted…20 minutes? All we did was quickly discuss the syllabus. I suffered 5 solid minutes of freezing cold from my car to the classroom and back again for nothing! Ah well, burning off handful number 1 of them fishies? Ha.
Din was a tasty plate of goods. Sundried Tomato Basil Gardenburger on a slice of toasted rye with goat cheese, dijonnaise and lettuce + a side of broccoli topped with salsa and light ranch.
Followed by not one but TWO mini bowls of yogurt messes.
#1 – plain yogurt, small slice apple banana bread with red pepper jelly and banana slices.
#2 – spoonful plain yogurt, spoonful strawberry yogurt, spoonful pumpkin, weetabix, Vector cereal.
The rest of the evening thus far has consisted of picture sorting, blogging, 10% paying attention to Canada vs US hockey game and doing all while sitting in front of my saviour:
My bones have been significantly less chilled since I got this at Christmas. Anyone else have ice water running through their veins? Not nice Winter. You’re pretty but much too cold for me.
And a handful of others meals from the past few days:
Puffins, Fibre One Raisin Bran, plain yogurt, banana
Large and quickly inhaled snacky plate
Tofu Mousse, banana, trail mix
Cabbage slaw and steamed broccoli topped with shredded chicken and light ranch dressing + slice of white bread with goat cheese.
Butternut squash fries and acorn squash. Spinach and steamed broccoli with honey mustard dressing. A few noodles (x5 that amount) for good measure.
Salad mess of spinach, cucs, shrooms, baby tomatoes, steamed broccoli, acorn squash, honey mustard dressing and… Cheddar Popchips? It was a BIG bag and they’re addicting! Plus they tasted darn good on this salad.
More acorn squash with goat cheese, tiny blob of mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli with salsa.
And there you have it. My bum is now numb so I think I need to take a walk around… the house. It’s too darn cold for a brisk night walk! Boo. Only one class tomorrow though and it’s not a morning one. Score!
I hope 2010 has been good to everyone so far ;)
