Sunday’s 3pm Spot coffee was a terrible mistake. I got less than three hours of sleep that night! It made Monday morning’s 6 am Starbucks coffee an absolute necessity.
That’s a tall, non-fat, eggnog latte and it was fabulous! And I ate a Green Dragon apple (also fabulous) while I read through my notes.
My morning snack was from my #simplesurvivalkit.
A serving of Food Should Taste Good Chocolate Tortilla Chips to scoop up green salsa.
I had time to go home between my exam (went well-ish!) and work so I made myself a delicious plate of eggs for lunch.
At that point I still thought I was making a healthy dinner so I kept my eggs simple with no veggies. Just 5 chopped slices of turkey – just regular old honey roasted like for sandwiches – cooked in 1 Tbsp Earth Balance with 2 eggs and Cabot’s Sharp Cheddar Light Cheese scrambled in.
They were amazing; I’m having a total love affair with eggs recently.
I brought a Hint Blackberry Fizz with me for my 8.5 hour shift.
The Fizz was good, but it didn’t pack the caffeine-punch that I desperately needed.
At one point during my shift I was so tired that I was in an actual daze! On three different occasions I wanted to call Adam to bring me something and I had to really crank up my brain to work through why that didn’t make sense. <– he was out-of-town
I ended up using the work Keurig to make an extra-strength coffee with cream and sugar.
I stopped at the Co-op for food the minute I got off of work.
I shoved that Orzo Greek Salad into my face while walking around 7-11. Classy.
I had to run another errand on the way home from work and I called my parents to tell them I was home safely and suddenly it was 11 pm. I was exhausted and cranky and so hungry I felt like I was going to pull my hair out if I didn’t get food into my mouth immediately.
I ended up eating a bunch of crap and staying up too late but not studying. Of course. Homemade nachos that I ate so quickly I think even Webster was a little disgusted.
That’s 2-ish servings of Nacho Cheese Tortilla PopChips microwaved with cheese.
I bought the chips with a sweet free coupon that PopChips sent me and sadly I don’t think I like the tortilla version as much as the originals. Something about the texture feels off to me. To be fair, PopChips are amazing so the standard was set high.
and a bowl of melted pb with cocoa powder.
I wish I could tell you that today has been better on the fruit and veggies front but sadly that’s not true. This is definitely a week of exam eating.
Breakfast of champions.
Plus this Boston Cream Pie Seltzer that I thought would be amazing but ended up getting passed to a friend after one sip because it made me gag.
I have adored Polar this year though and one bad flavor won’t turn me off. I am very excited about the Pear Vanilla I bought with it. And I am crossing my fingers and toes that the Eggnog flavor with be out again in time for Christmas.
Starting at 7:40 I had two very frustrating meetings on campus. I don’t know if I get to graduate or not (getting a 2nd degree vs. just taking the classes needed to sit for the RD exam), I don’t really understand what I need to have done for next semester, and I have lots more to do before Thursday.
I took a walk home to clear my head and got Subway for lunch. A 6-inch tuna sub with lots of red onions.
Do you have a Subway rewards card yet? Because my sandwich was free!
And I’ve got a healthy dinner waiting for me in the fridge…
Or just “a dinner.” I’m blogging my winner of a dinner in advance because I have to go back to school for another meeting at 2:00 and then tomorrow morning I have two final exams that are going to crush me.
Plus this afternoon I am taking a study break to do something crazy. There is a hint in this post. Can you guess???
