First Final

December 10, 2008

So today I have my first final of the week at 3:00. I’m working from 12:00-2:00 (I work in a library so I can pretty much just do whatever I want which today would be studying). I have a short break so I will most likely grab a salad or a veggie sub for lunch which I will try to remember to take a picture of. Sorry I did not photograph my breakfast this morning but it seemed pretty boring because I had the same oatmeal I have been having except I had some blackberries on top. I have been trying to eat up the food in my apartment because I’m moving out on Sunday :(. I’ve been having those flavored oatmeal packets which are definitely not my favorite because they are way too sweet for my taste in the morning. Today I had a Quaker Simple Harvest one which is good but not a lot of oats because they put nuts in it. I like them but I already put my own nuts on top. Oh well, I guess I’ll know just to not buy flavored oatmeal packets because they are usually an impulse purchase. Anyways, I was going to go running before work but I though laying in bed sounds much more appealing :). I might go after my final depending on what time I get out because it really isn’t safe to run in the dark around here.


And here are some food photos for your viewing pleasure. These are all from this summer!

I am done with classes for the semester! I still have finals later this week but still. I had two classes today which were fine. I came back to my apartment and had a quick lunch and then went to work for a couple of hours. After work I went on a quick 3 mile run. I’m about to go a dinner in a few minutes so this is just a quick post.

I just finished two tests! Glad to have those over now I have a lot less stress. I still have three finals next week and a paper to write but I have a lot of time so I’m not too worried about it. This morning I woke up early to study for a bit before my first test and I had some oatmeal with pomegranate seeds yum! I’ve never had pomegranate seeds on oatmeal and I definitely liked it a lot. I still have more seeds left so you may be seeing more of this combo. 





Also how do you all eat your oatmeal? I always eat mine from one size of the bowl to the other like this…



I had a short break in between classes so I sat in the garden and had a Luna Tea Cake with my water bottle. I carry this water bottle to every class throughout to day.






After my tests I had lunch with a friend in my school dining hall. I had a salad which included: lettuce, red bell peppers, carrots, cucumber, chick peas, and about a tbsp balsamic dressing.


About an hour later I was hungry so I had a Western Alternative Bagel with pumpkin butter and peanut butter and a yoplait light raspberry yogurt with pomegranate seeds.






Well I’m going to read some blogs and go work out later!

Back to the grind

December 3, 2008

Second day of classes being back from break. I have two presentations today. One for my psychology of gender class and one for my developmental psychology class. Neither of them are too serious so I don’t think it is a big deal. I actually got about 10 hours of sleep last night though! Todays bowl of oats included:

1/2 cup oats, water, and silk soymilk

a banana



pumpkin butter





It’s the too pretty looking though sorry. I also had coffee of course. It looks really milky today. Maybe I made it weak or put a lot of milk in it? Oh and yes I did eat at my desk today. I do have a kitchen but I wanted to read some blogs while I ate this morning since I had some extra time!


Also does anyone know how to edit the title of the blog?

This morning I woke up around ten o’clock. Last night I had made a breakfast cookies a la #mce_temp_url#. It didn’t harden up but I did use water not soymilk so that could have been the reason? 




After that I decided to just make some oatmeal. This combo had:

-1/2 cup oats, 1% milk, and water

-a banana

-5 blackberries(thats all that were left)



-a spoonful of stoneyfield farm vanilla yogurt

-some unsweetened coconut




The coconut was good on top!


After breakfast I ventured over to whole foods which I found some of the bars I had been looking for as well as some other thing.




For lunch I had a salad which included:


-a whole tomato

-a whole avacado

-1/2 cup black beans

-a huge spoonful of salsa
