Hello gorgeous people! I was incredibly blessed this fine Wednesday. For no particular reason, I felt uncontainable, effervescent happiness all day. After getting only five hours of sleep, it made no sense.
Waking before my alarm, I noticed the light already breaking into my room. Could it be? Did I spy:
Oh how I’ve missed the sun! Excited to get back to studying (I’m not even being sarcastic–I wanted to see how much had sunk in overnight), I quickly made a never-let-me-down breakfast:
In the bowl: 1/3 C oats, 1 C water, 1/2 naner, 1/2 T chia seeds, apple pie spice, vanilla stevia and peanut butter drizzle. Food tastes remarkably more delicious when one’s in a chipper mood. I had two cups of coffee alongside; I needed it. Also, for some reason, I felt significantly better! No sore throat and pounding head. I think it may have been because I didn’t consume much dairy (only one cheese stick) and I avoided overly processed food on Tuesday. Works every time.
I reviewed my notes in 40 minutes and was thrilled that I recalled most of the cases. Hollaaa! After notes and digestion, I listened to Guetta and properly dressed to meet Muffin at the gym:
Muff and I rocked the gym. I studied and did 50 minutes of intervals on the elliptical, complete with 3lb. weights. Definitely knocked the notes off the machine three times. Whoops. I followed the cardio with 20 minutes of abs and arms with a stability ball. It was fabulous.
Alive and ready to take on the rest of the day, I walked my hungry hiney home. I showered, dressed and fixed a lovely lunch:
The moo-free smoothie and bagel were so good I couldn’t help but devour it in less than 20 minutes. In the moo-free smoothie: 1/2 naner, few frozen strawbeezies, handful frozen bloobs, about 3 C spinach, 1+1/2 C water, 1 scoop protein powda and a drop vanilla stevia. Amaze. Perhaps even more amazing was the bagel:
Despite feeling motivated in the realms of food, workouts and academics, things have been slacking in the style department:
One recent find was this necklace I’ve had since I was a pup:
Once dressed and straightened, I settled into my notes again. If anyone wants to talk about prior restraint cases, I’m down.
I met with my Magazine Editing partner at 3pm. We have a presentation Thursday about Wine Spectator. Yes, I may have suggested a publication by a former internship employer. Gotta stick with what you know, ya know?
And then at 4pm, it was time. Time to take my first Media Law exam. I felt confident on about 23 of the 30 questions. Not good enough! What I do not enjoy seeing on a multiple choice exam, several times over:
D) All of the above
E) None of the above
Whaddufuh? Trust me, I’m trying to convince myself that in the grand scheme of my life, these 30 questions won’t mean a thing. Fretting about my GPA or not, I was still feeling SnackFizzy. That is, I was starving and I was still feeling bubbly.
Before taming the hunger beast, I visited Muffin. We noted that at the time, we had only 28 hours until our weekends commence. College, I will take advantage of your three-day weekends while I can.
Finally home, I was ready to eat everything. First, I decided to make use of the non-wrappable Ezekiel tortillas:
Method for supa crunchy tortilla chips:
-Preheat oven to 450*
-Coat baking sheet with non-stick
-Slice 1 tortilla into triangles
-Spread on sheet and sprinkle with salt and more non-stick
-Bake until brown
Tortilla chips are my absolute favorite, so it was awesome to have built-in portion control here. I’m not against eating my weight in chips, I just don’t need to do it everyday. To make a complete meal, I heated some TJ’s black bean soup and sliced half a bell pepper:
I don’t remember much about the soup (it’s always good), as I was busy obsessing over the chiplettes:
Initially, I was stuffed after dinner. An hour later, though, the tum felt empty. I snacked on a pear, which didn’t do much. I needed more:
The only equations I complete are of the foodie nature. It was a good snack, but I still snacked a bit after. When I think back on my morning, I walked 20 minutes to the gym, did 50 minutes on the elliptical, performed 20-ish minutes of abs and arms and then walked 20 minutes back to mi casa. Definitely revved up the metabolism.
Thursday is going to a whopper! Class and meetings 9am to 10pm. SnackFizzy will be able to handle it…as long as the fizz is there.
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: Are you hard on yourself? In what ways? Do you wish you could stop? OR Have you overcome being hard on yourself? How did you do so?
I am ridiculously hard on myself when it comes to grades. Anything less than an A makes me feel inadequate. If I miss a question on a quiz or test, I immediately analyze the question and figure out where I went wrong. Then, I’ll talk to the professor. While I’m proud to have a 3.9, I do wish that I didn’t take grades so personally. Oh well. I guess I only have four months left of worrying about it!
