Hello darlings! I’m writing this at 12:18am and must awake at 7am to prepare for a full day of classes. This means you must mentally prepare for a spastic quickie post! Hollaaa.
I awoke to the kindest comment I’ve ever received. Not only did this person tell me I’m an idiot who needs to get off her high horse, but she also shared with me that I look like a skeleton. My wobbly bits have something else to say about that.
Moving on with my life, I made a fabulous breakfast that I’ll dub proats:
Protein + oats = proats. In the mix: 1/3 C oats, 1/3 C soymilk, 2/3 C water, 1/2 banana, 1 rounded T protein powder, drop of vanilla NuStevia, apple pie spice and a dollop of crunchy peanut butter. This was amaze:
After digestion, I cranked up the beats and got bossy for the day:
It snowed all day and I prepared as best I could:
Trotting to Women’s Chorale (WC, pronounced “dub-see” in my head), I realized that it was nearly noon and I hadn’t done much with my day. Last week at that same time, I’d already gotten in a workout, transported from Hoboken to NYC, eaten breakfast, blogged, done work, etc. Cray cray!
It was fabulous to reunite with my doves of WC! We hugged, chatted and eventually sang. Joy.
Afterward, I skidaddled to Communications Law. I have a schedule conflict with this class that I’m currently trying to resolve. Either way, it’s going to be a beezy. It may be the most challenging class I’ve had to take.
I was hungry after class, so I froze off my hands while I ate a snacklette en route to the gym:
There were many more raw almonds in that bag, I promise. I can’t resist a good nut.
I made a huge decision while at the gym and finally rented a locker. I’m always paranoid that someone is going to steal my belongings (I have no idea why!), and we aren’t allowed to have backpacks/bags next to the ellipticals. I womanned up and spent $23 to rent a locker for the quarter. I already feel much better.
The workout was smashing! I did 50 minutes of intervals on the elliptical followed by about 15 minutes of abs and stretching. Then I nastily changed back into my jeans for the walk home. Stank. Eeee.
Naturally, I was ravenous after the workout and 20-minute walk home. Cooked up something phenom:
The apple was sweet and the veggies were crisp, but the real Slim Shady was the wrap:
In the wrap: Laughing Cow Swiss wedge, paper-thin apple slices and three mashed meatless meatballs. I wrapped them up, fried it on a non-stick spray-coated pan and heated on both sides. Absolutely, ridiculously delicious. Only three innards, but there was no need for anything else.
I finally showered post-lunch/dinner (I ate at 5pm), and then got to organizing my planner. Hunger visited:
I crunched the chips as I tried to figure out how I could switch Com Law sections. I absolutely must, as I have a huge conflict with the final exam time. You’ll know what it is later 😉
The stress got to me and I just needed to lie down, relax and not throw my beloved Vaio across the room. Thank the sweet heavens for The Real Housewives of Orange County. I know this is behind the air date, but was anyone else shocked/saddened when Alexis said that if she eats a donut, she’ll kick her own hiney for the next few days? I’d pat myself on the tum and move on!
And move on from stress, I did. I got ready (yet again) for a capella practice. There is nothing like singing with two choirs in one day. I love it!
As I put on my face, I ate delicious faux-dough ice cream:
Made up and hair straightened, I bounced to the music building. Reuniting with these ladies was also lovely. Creating music with a group is unlike anything. It builds bonds for life.
Practice ended early and I found Muffin in Wendy’s. The scent of fries put me in the mood. I ordered a little something:
Prior to this, I don’t remember the last time I had a baked potato or sour cream. Hell, I don’t remember the last time I had Wendy’s!
Muffin and I talked for hours, which carried us through visiting our favorite bars uptown. There wasn’t much going on and we both decided we’d much rather be in our respective beds, asleep. Actually, I decided I’d rather blog in my warm home, eat an Arnold’s Thin covered in Smart Balance Light and then go to bed. Although I had a wobbly start to the quarter, I know Tuesday will be marvelous. Just know it.
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: Would you kick yourself for eating a donut? Why or why not? I’m hoping peeps say no.
