Today has been more busy than I thought it would be. This could be because I primped more than ususall hmmmm, yep I’d say that it
Breakfast came out of the freezer
It’s easy and the pancakes come out amazing. I grew up on “real” pancakes (aka flour egg . . .) and bought pancake mix on a wim. Glad I did cause while scratch pancakes are SO easy, this is even easier.
We added pumpkin which made them even better. Reheated and they still taste amazing (minus syrup!)
I then studied chemistry- yikes- and ran. I had planned a 7 miler but for some odd reason my stomach was not happy. SO I walked one mile and only ran 6.
When I got home I could tell dehydration was my problem. My sweat was SO salty (tmi maybe?). SO Lunch needed to do some hydrating
this green monster is :1 cup skim milk, 1 cup water, handful spinach, banana, and muscle milk light
SO I’m headed to my little brothers soccer game
How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
When I study I almost always have a candle burning. I’m open to all candles that smell amazing. Although I have to say my favorite are warm smells like vanilla, baked goods, and pumpkin.
On my desk at this very moment I have three candles. The first one, burning at this moment, is a harvest smell from Dollar General. It actually smells amazing but it going to be gone so quickly. I’m a hard-core candle burner
and a Clean Linen Candle from Glade
Lunch today btw was easy and amazing
About an hour later I wanted a snack and decided an apple was in order
After babysitting and taking a test (and getting out of class 2 hours early!) I started a chapter on Soup, salad, and gels for my food preparation class. So of course, soup was needed
and a side of an English muffin
For dessert I decided to try something new! But I think my expectations were for a great chocolaty experience
back to the early confession about my love for candles. Cause I go through about three a week (kidding kind of).
What is your favorite candle scent?
Last week when my friend MattyD came to visit I was rejuvinated when the week started.
This week my “sister” came to visit. I have three best friends from college and after four years of life, love, and adventure we know live in different places. I don’t think I knew how much I missed them until Sarah came to visit this weekend. While she healed my soul she also made me miss her and the girls SO MUCH
Really though, life is working out for me. I pained my fingernails red after Sarah left to remind myself to
Be Bold Be Bold and Everywhere be BOLD
Good thing I’m headed to Purdue this weekend to see one of my other “sisters”
Okay breakfast was easy cause someone slept in
after class I decided I wanted to finish my breakfast in the form of a snack
Alright folks- despite this tired soul I need to get motivated and study for an hour or two. I think I’ll break for a run and then study a little more. I have a test tonight! Hopefully this one goes well. I feel pretty good about it
For whatever reason my heart is a little broken. I have to say- this happens sometimes. I don’t want to go into many details but lets just say- It sucks when you are not the one picked
Whenever this happens music from Les Miserables always seems to help (is that depressing? cause it isn’t supposed to be)
my two favorites are
On My Own
and I Dreamed a Dream
Yes those are both the Glee versions. Listening to the words always helps. I know they are depressing but it makes me feel better to validate my feelings than have a “everything will get better” attitude sometimes
Okay eats for the last few days
Okay folks I promise I’ll be back. I think my heart has healed a little Time will only tell
First off I live in a town called normal so this is a little funny to me. . . HA HA
I have my first chem exam in a hour. I can’t wait to just be back to normal. This will have to be short cause I have a few things to look over
first off sorry I studied through dinner last night and made a pb and j as I ran out the door. But here is lunch
Today for breakfast I had a food blogger classic
Well folks- wish me luck! Gonna look over everything for a little
Sorry no post last night! I got frustrated and burned out and just went to bed. Does that ever happen to you?
Class got out early so dinner was easy and also not eaten at 9:30
of course there was also dessert and some nibbles
I made coffee “ice cream” by using muscle milk light, milk, and coffee. I put half in the freezer for another day. I also nibbled some Honey Gram Oh’s. Honestly when I’m studying I’m kind of a snacker.
Breakfast this morning was exactly what I wanted
My Body really aches from the race yesterday. It was wet and slippery so I think my whole core had to work extra hard. I decided the best workout for today (and short that can be split up so I have study breaks) is Yoga. I’m using Hulu excercise TV yoga workouts. They are about 20 minutes and I did cardio Yoga. I think I’ll try to get another one in tonight.
Speaking of the race- I have not photo’s (sorry forgot my camera) but I do have my results
thats just under 8:00 minute pace. Not my best but it’s a start. Plus the weather was not really great and the road was very slippery. MattyD, my friend who I ran with, also ran a slow time. Conditions may effect us a little. When I looked up my results I felt really young. The women around me were in the mid thirties. I’ve got some future huh! Hope I’m like then in a few years
Point of lunch today was to get a few fruits and veggies in while also getting some protein
hit the spot and filled all my requirements for a lunch. A fruit, a veggie, a few carbs, and some protein
SO back to the race
Question of the Day
What do you do when your body aches after a workout?
