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.

After lunch I studied for a bit then had a clif bar for a snack. This is the first time I tried this flavor and although it wasn’t bad it wasn’t that good either. It was okay but I would say if I was going to have a clif bar, there are other flavors I would chose before this one.

After my snack I walked to the grocery store. It was a total of 3 miles which was quite the workout on the way back with all the groceries. At the store I got:

3 medjool dates

5 bananas

half gallon of light Silk soymilk

4 yogurt

honey wheat bagel (they are mini. the brand is western alternative bagels)

pomegranate 

 

After I got back I went for a 3 mile run before dinner. So tonight I decided to get the seeds out of my pomegranate and my roommate taught me a really good trick to get the seeds out. You cut off the little stem of it first. Then you slice it into four quarters. Get a bowl of water. Break up and pomegranate best you can and put it in the water. The seeds will sink and everything else will float. This made it much easier to get all the seeds out!

 

Oh and I was in the library for 3 hours tonight hence the title of the post!

I got one of my presentations down and I have one more to go on Monday ugh! The one I had went well though and the other shouldn’t be too bad. Today for lunch I had peanut butter and pumpkin butter open faced. I also had an apple on the side, I think it was gala. I’m going to walk to the store later to pick up a couple of things and maybe work out if I have time. I’m working tonight from 6:00-8:00 and I definitely don’t want to have to work out after.

Ugh I just wrote a long post and it got deleted! Anyways I told you I would post some pictures soon. Tonight for dinner I had tofu with vegetables and about 1/4 cup cooked white rice. I also had a small salad with spinach, carrots, cucumber, broccoli, dried cranberries, and a little balsamic dressing. For dessert I had Edy’s Loaded peanut butter cup ice cream with some fall colored dark chocolate M&M’s on top. Also here are some pictures of some Thanksgiving desserts.
