It’s Friday! My sleep total for the last 2 days is still only at about 8 hours but somehow I managed to make it to the gym this morning. I didn’t get up quite on time, but I made it. I did have to cut my workout a bit short to make it back to campus on time for class, but I figured it was better than skipping it entirely (<– what would have happened if I had tried to wait and go after class).
8 sets of 3 minutes running / 2 minutes walking. 42 minutes and 3.5 miles with cool down.
I had to skip breakfast too, but it was worth it. Besides, I was busy doing important things like shrouding myself in pinks and purples instead of drying my hair.
When I did finally get “breakfast” at noon I stuck with the color theme.
Those two chopped plucots are perched on a bowl of Wegman’s Low-fat Honey Yogurt.
The gratuitous dog picture means I approve! The yogurt’s texture was creamy and good and the flavor was pure honey.
The bowl was delicious.
Lunch was better though. I bet you know what I had.
Ah-mazing. I hope with all of my heart that y’all will try that recipe at home.
I also had a salad. Romaine topped with peanut sauce, green onions, shredded carrots, and dry roasted peanuts.
The green onions were a fun addition.
Dessert happened too.
This recipe wasn’t on my baking roster, but it was a necessary last-minute addition. My friend Kim unwrapped a piece of gum in class today and at first I thought the wrapper was an Andes Mint. That was it.
I made a half recipe of our favorite brownies with Andes mints layered in the middle. I had three smallish ones.
Amazing as well.
And I wasn’t done in the kitchen yet. I’m going to be out of the house all day tomorrow so I whipped up lunch in advance.
A random mishmash of unmeasured amounts of – spaghetti, linguine, shredded chicken, skim milk, medium buffalo sauce, reduced fat cream cheese, mozzarella, cheddar, blue cheese, spinach, brocoli, and peas. I had a few bites and it was very good; I’m looking forward to lunch tomorrow.
I’m also looking forward to bed! I’m still not really tired, but I can tell that sleep is going to feel good. The plan for dinner is a frozen meal and a beer and then I hope to turn in early.
Pick your poison – Junior Mints, York Patties, or Andes?
