Can you believe another weekend is over–they fly by way too fast. This time I’m happy about it though because it just means I’m even closer to going home for Thanksgiving break! Today was just a usual Sunday: gym, library, AOII meeting. Spending all day in the library is seriously draining–I hope to get into bed by 11:00 tonight to get a good night’s sleep since tomorrow I’m going to be running around like crazy.
I was up early this morning and since the gym doesn’t open until 10 on Sundays (and it’s just way too cold to run outside) I lounged around, sipped on some sugar cookie sleigh ride tea which is honestly the best tea I’ve ever tasted. Next time I go to the store I’m loading up on like 100 boxes so that I can drink it all year round! I had one of my favorites for breakfast: overnight oats.
I got a good workout in, a quick shower, and packed up to hit the library. For lunch I packed a delicious peanut butter sandwich and some baby carrots. These probably weren’t the wisest choice though because I felt like everyone was getting annoyed at hearing me crunch away.
For an afternoon snack I had a chewy chocolate chip pure protein bar. They aren’t kidding when they call these ‘chewy’, I got a headache trying to eat it it was so chewy and hard! These do have a lot of protein in them, they’re a good size, and they do fill me up, but overall I just don’t love them. I just can’t get into the texture of them and they have a weird aftertaste. Also, I really like breaking of teeny tiny bits of my bars and eating them really slowly and you just can’t do that with these.
I had a meeting tonight from 6-8 and needed another snack to tide me over until dinner. I had a pear and a few almonds and it did the trick wonderfully.
I am running extremely low on groceries but don’t want to go to the store since I’m leaving for break so soon. It was way to cold to go out to get something for dinner so I just made do with stuff I had lying around. I heated up a box of creamy roasted carrot soup and popcorn. For being a strange combo it actually worked really well! I tossed some of the popcorn into the soup and it was like little croutons. This soup is so good, and using the whole box (2 cups) makes for the perfect, filling bowl. With the popcorn, this meal was a volume eater’s dream. I wish I had some salad veggies to round it out a little more though. I do have to say that this was the perfect meal for the cold, windy weather!
I honestly don’t think I can go a night without dessert! Tonight was some cottage cheese, cinnamon, and a graham cracker. Very delicious. There was also some sneaky un-photographed trail mix. Oops!
I’ve had a pretty productive day work-wise but there’s always more to do! I hope everyone had a great weekend! See you tomorrow : )
