I Hate Rain

It has been rainy, windy, and all around miserable all day today. It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to just curl up with a blanket, a cup of tea, and read a good book. I sort of did that today–minus the good book (unless of course you consider “Does Economic Integration Cause Foreign Direct Investment?” a good read.) Which I must admit, I sort of do : P


Despite going to bed around 3am I still woke up at 8 this morning. Since I had no classes or commitments today I forced myself to stay in bed and managed to doze on and off until around 10:30. This is the latest I’ve stayed in bed in AGES! 

When I finally got up I still wasn’t hungry after my splurges last night, so I did plenty of re-hydrating and finally made myself a big bowl of cereal around 11:30.

After this settled I headed to the gym to get in a nice, sweaty workout. I actually had a really good run on the treadmill today. I get really sick of the treadmill when I have to use it all the time, but every once in a while I can handle it. I was feeling really motivated, and also didn’t want to venture back out in the rain, so after my run I hit up the arc trainer for a little bit before stretching and making my way back through the torrential downpours.


Since I had breakfast so late I didn’t really have an ‘official’ lunch but instead just snacked my way through the day while doing homework. I had a deliciously sweet apple, some popcorn, and a rice cake (which I almost forgot a picture of!)


Another little twist of my ‘college student diet’ of pasta. This time I had it with some brussels sprouts and a Morninstar Spicy Black Bean Burger. This was a great combo–the crumbled up veggie burger made it seem like spaghetti and meatballs! Yumm!


Even though my dinner filled me up, my sweet tooth hit HARD right after I finished eating. I indulged it with some Late July Cookies. These things are great! They are organic (and vegan!) and have such a rich dark chocolate taste. I love them! And just like I do with Oreos, I break them apart, lick the icing, and eat the cookies slowly, savoring each bite!

And now I’m snacking on a big bowl of frozen berries while watching the debate. This is definitely my favorite night-time treat!

I also had 2 of these. I forgot to take a picture and was just going to let it go but then I felt guilty depriving you guys of my true eats, haha. Then I was thinking of doing a reenactment but I knew that if I took some more out of the package to take a picture there was no way they were making it back in the bag–they would be in my tummy for sure. So I settled on a picture of the package. These are SO GOOD! They have little chocolate bits throughout. Yum yum!

Have a great weekend!

    I like the crumbled burger idea! I’m sorry you don’t love the rain. It’s my favorite. Come visit me. It’s always mid-80’s, until winter, when it is…hell.

    I’ve never tried adding a burger to pasta before, but I used to love Hamburger Helper (hehe!) so I bet it tastes great!!

    I’ve got to get me some Late July cookies! I used to eat Oreos ALL the time growing up…and I licked the icing too. The cookie always looks so gross when all is said and done, but all that matters is taste!!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
