Oh Tuesdays

Tuesdays are my crazyyyyyy day and today was no exception! But it’s OK! The SUN was out today and it was warm so I was happy. Really, nice weather is all it takes to make me less miserable happy here at school. Oh, and guess what! I’M GOING HOME IN A WEEK! Yep, I wasn’t sure if it was going to work out but I’m going home for a loonggg weekend to celebrate Passover. I leave a week from Wednesday and I’m staying till Sunday. Let’s just call it Spring Break part 2! WOOHOOOOOOOOO I CAN’T WAIT!


Cereal as usual. I usually use Unsweetened Almond Breeze for my milk but Light Vanilla Soymilk was on sale at the store so I decided to give it a shot. Holy cow! This was so creamy and delicious, I loved it! I’m definitely going to keep this in my usual rotation!


I got an email this morning that my spinning class was cancelled because the instructor was sick so I decided to go to the gym on my own earlier to get it out of the way. As much as I love my spinning class, I am totally a morning person and it is rough for me to work out from 6:30-7:30 at night, so I was glad that I could hit the gym earlier today.


I packed myself a turkey, laughing cow sandwich with some carrots and a pear that I took from the dining hall last night. It’s a buffet style dining hall so I love swiping things to take with me. You have to be sneaky about it though because the workers are on the lookout and will yell at you. But seriously, for $50,000 a year you better believe I’m stealing whatever I can get my hands on!



During my long afternoon of classes I broke out a kashi bar which I almost broke a tooth eating. Midway through I did find a trick. If you roll it around in your hands for a while it warms up and isn’t quite like biting into a brick. The flavor is really good and it keeps me full so it has so much potential, I just wish it wasn’t so darn hard!


After class I really wanted to enjoy the nice weather because I’m sure it will be miserable again tomorrow. Since spinning was cancelled and I already went to the gym I had some extra free time so I took a nice long, leisurely walk. It was great! When I got home I was sort of hungry but not quite ready for dinner so I had a little appetizer: Pirate’s Booty



My friend was driving over to Whole Foods to pick up dinner for herself so I obviously jumped all over that and got myself a salad and cranberry pecan roll. Mmmm, divine.



Fresh fruit and whipped cream. I can’t even tell you how good this is, I definitely went back for seconds (and thirds!)–it’s honestly one of my very favorite desserts and just tastes so decadent and amazing, and the fact that it’s so healthy and good for me makes it even better!


I’m tired! I have to go read a book (yes, an entire book) for class tomorrow. See ya!

    My Tuesdays are my craziest days too!

    AND I totally know what you mean about stealing things from the dining hall. I live off campus now but when my friends take me as a guest, I steal SO MUCH! hahah

    First of all, I want to say HOW CUTE of you to develop a Roll-the-roll method of eating the Kashi bar. hahah I can’t believe I’ve never thought of that, but I’m totally with you there – those bars are like ROCKS.

    As for breakfast, YAYYY i’m just like you in that I love switching up the milks! Unsweetened almond milk and whatever light soy milk is on sale! Silk is still the best!! I heart the Silk light chocolate milk!!

    OH! And I used to ALWAYS take tonnes of stuff from dining halls. One time they made me pour out the milk I put in a little water bottle. Grrrr how embarassing!

    Pirateโ€™s Booty sounds delicious! I definitely take things all the time from the dinning hall whenever a friend treats me to a meal there, I figure it makes up for how much they charged me for my meal plan as a freshman.

    If you roll it around in your hands for a while it warms up…

    It has so much potential…

    I just wish it wasnโ€™t so darn hard…

    That’s what she said.

    You set me up.

    On a much cleaner note, I love me some Pirate’s Booty. TJ’s brand gets even more white cheezy dust on your fingers. Mmmm…

    I love how you stock up at the cafeteria, I wish I could but we get charged by the pound for whatever we buy….RIDICULOUS!!

    Yay for being able to go home in a week!
    I’ve officially decided your my long-lost twin– or we just have a lot in common. I HATE cold weather and am in a much better mood when it’s warm- I even moved from NC to CA based 95% just on the warmth! I also can’t workout at night or usually put it off if I don’t do it in the morning. I have the same pink heart rate monitor as you & I LOVE fruit for dessert & actually just finished a plate myself. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just thought all the similarities were funny- hope you have a great rest of the week!

    Oh, and I forgot- I stole an apple from a buffet (souplantation) today. I take a pretend bite on the way out the door ๐Ÿ˜€

    Fresh fruit and whipped cream is divine!! Woohoo for sunny days and going home! I agree completely with your review of the Kashi bar – why must it be so hard?!
