Hey everyone! Sorry for being a little MIA recently! Lets do a little recap shall we?
made my first pumpkin smoothie– suggested by Taylor
pumpkin, unsweetened almond milk, ice, honey, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg
I liked this ….but… as I told Taylor…. I thought that it was not sweet enough. She suggested to add more pumpkin or add a bit of maple syrup (like she does) to give it more sweetness. I was also thinking of adding a little bit of frozen banana? hm. anyway- I think I will try making this again soon- but I will tweek the “recipe” to give it more a pumpkin/sweet flavor.
workout: I ran a slow and enjoyable 5 miles outside and then went to yoga class at my gym. It was challenging but just what I needed- like usual.
For dinner I heated up Mama’s Weeds’ Lentil Chili …with seduction bread of course
sorry the picture is not very attractive- I swear this chili is awesome haha
My sister has been sick lately and on thursday night I really started to feel sick! ah! so I went to bed early with hopes that I would feel better in the morning…..no such luck. I woke up coughing and sneezing- boo. I went to my classes and then out to lunch (Panera) with Meaghan and Rosina and had every intention on doing my long run of 14 miles…but with the way I was feeling, I thought hey maybe Ill just do 5 miles and save 14 for sunday. Well I decided not to even do the 5 miles- I could not breathe out of my nose and I was so so tired! So instead…I took a nap, went food shopping and got hot chocolate with my roommates 😉
since I have not been out in forever with my friends, I thought I would suck it up and go out on friday night. I ended up having a really fun time- It was karaoke night at the bar – Mckay, my friend Rob, and I sang LFO- summer girls woot woot!
Woke up early feeling sick…once again. yay. I was starving and thought I should wake up and at least eat something and take some medicine and whatnot…. so I made a bowl of hot pumpkin oats 😉
oats, raisins banana, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, cinnamon raisin PB
After breakfast I decided that it would be best to go back to bed for awhile- sleep is the best medicine— so they say anyway! haha I slept until 10:40! WOOHOO….this is a milestone for me. I woke up feeling fantastic. okay, not fantastic…but ALOT better than before.
I made my class schedule for next semester (we have to sign up on wednesday): I decided to take Cell biology (NO LAB! WOOHOO), bioethics (to fulfill my ethics core requirement), Revolutionary America (to fulfill my upper level history core), Intro to computers with software applications (a requirement for physician assistant school), physics II (plus lab). Anyway- it looks like my second semester schedule will be much easier for me…and I definitely need it. The actual course load is better (easier- or so it seems-classes and not as many labs (1 compared to 3 and a calc lab presently) and I made my classes start a little later than I have ever started before. I’m liking the schedule I made 😉
I have to take Human Anatomy and Physiology I & II (plus lab) in the summer at a unversity near my home and an online medical terminology course (both for Physician Assistant school requirements)- my school does not offer these courses! But I figured it all out and all I have left to take is Genetics, my upper level Theology, and my upper level Literature and I will everything completed to graduate! how awesome? Senior year should be very nice 😉
After I made my schedule…. I studied calculus, took out the trash and cleaned the bathroom (it is my week!), and then headed to the gym. I am planning on doing my long run (14 miles) tomorrow and I have to teach my spinning class at night (do not worry…Ill take it very easy)… so I decided to do a nice and enjoyable run of 4 miles (or as enjoyable as running can be when you are sick) plus some pushups and corework.
For dinner, Mckay (my roommate!) and I went to One World Cafe!!
I ordered the veggie burger of the day with a side of broccoli– but they forgot to sub the chips for the broccoli so I got both instead!
homemade veggie burger with side of broccoli (no picture)
and Mckay and I shared a plate of baked old bay fries 😉
Mckay got a black bean burrito- which looked awesome. We had a fun time there together!!!! I came home and opened up one of the goodies that Newman’s Own Organics gave to me: Dark chocolate PB cups
and now I am veryyy full and ready to hit the books. want to hear about my week from hell for this coming week?
Monday- Physics problems due and Calc Quiz
Tuesday- Microbiology Lab Quiz
Wednesday- Biology of Mammals lab practical
Thursday- Physics lab quiz
Friday- Physics Exam and Calc Exam
Lets just say I will be a very happy camper once Friday is over! I really better go now- I have a lot of work to get done tonight- I have my 14 miler in the morning and then my roomates and a few of our guy friends are going apple and pumpkin picking tomorrow afternoon! 😉 hope you guys are having a good weekend!
