Whew…what a day. It was so wonderful to wake up according to my internal body clock–which still had me up by 6:30, by the way–rather then my alarm. Lovin’ it! But it still hasn’t hit me that I’m actually done this insanely busy semester. I still have some homework left on the compute, but once that’s accomplished, it’s official. And maybe then it will finally sink in that I don’t need to sit down and do homework and can actually read what I really want to! 🙂
Breakfast was really delicious too. Maybe because I could take my time and be creative? 🙂 This mix was made with 1/2 c. oats, 1 c. milk, 1/2 an apple (I ate the other half while prepping!), a handful of raisins, 8 dashes of cinnamon, 3 dashes of clove, and 2 dashes of nutmeg. Then I topped it all off with 2 T. walnuts, 2 T. of the best granola ever, a few more raisins, and a good sprinkling of coconut. I absolutely loved this bowl…it satisfied the aesthetic appeal, chew appeal, and taste appeal.
I also ate this with my breakfast. I don’t know, my appetite is definitely higher in the morning lately. I’m thinking maybe I should just increase my bowl of oats to 3/4 cup instead of the regular 1/2. Maybe then I wouldn’t have to have two breakfasts in one sitting. 😉
Anyways, the shopping and no homework day was much needed. So was this iced coffee with 1/2 c. milk and 1 tsp sugar. 🙂 I ate the pear after shopping around for a while.
Subways was the next best option. At least it’s filling, and I had it along with a handful of baked lays chips and a tall glass of ice cold milk at memere’s house. I got the turkey sub with the works (minus the hots) and mustard. And mom and I split a heavenly piece of lemon lush at memere’s. I took a couple of bites but wasn’t really in the mood for anything sweet so left it at that. When it’s really hot out like today, I either want fruit or a chilled dessert–ice cream comes to mind. 🙂
Me and mom decided to go for a walk upon returning home. Not before having a snack of THIS though!! I’ve been seeing fage 2% on other foodie blogs, and decided I needed to give it a try. I love fage 0%…to think it could be improved was beyond imagining…ha.
However, I’m notoriously a plant killer. Will Steve–as I’ve named him–survive? Dun, dun, dunnn…stay tuned! :-o!
Without further ado, here’s my to-do list for tomorrow. Maybe having it in writing will mean I’ll actually get stuff done and be productive!! 🙂
- Clean bedroom (and I mean major cleaning!)
- Figure out what to do with last semester’s school books!
- Renew ADA membership
- Complete chemistry assignments
- Run 3 miles
- Yoga or pilates…or any general strength training/stretching routine depending on what I’m in the mood for. 🙂
- Grocery shop
It’s not a huge to do list—totally doable with no excuse not to check everything off. 🙂
Happy HUMP DAY!
Exercise: 4-mile walk in the afternoon and a 2-mile walk after dinner. Both were relaxing and enjoyable. My legs felt a little tired from yesterday’s 4-mile run with dad. My legs are so not used to the longer runs any more! But I felt really happy to be running, which is really what it’s all about. Find the exercise you love and stick with it! 🙂
