Finally some time to sit down get to blogging! I hope everyone’s Monday is going well. I have some good news to share with you guys, but let’s get to today’s eats! This morning for breakfast I had my last savvy scone. Sad face! They were seriously, so good. Julie is an amazing baker! A chocolate strawberry protein smoothie accompanied the scone this morning.
Lunch was leftover veggies, beans and rice from El Mariachi.
Some sweet red cherries.
And a Gnu Bar! Gnu Foods sent me a bunch of different flavors of their bars to try out recently. So far I’ve loved the ones I’ve tried. I will write a full review of the product once I’ve tried all the flavors. Today I had orange cranberry…and it was so orangey (is that a word?) and flavorful! Pretty good tasting for a fiber bar, I must say.
When I got home from work, I knew I had to hop on the treadmill, or else I wouldn’t get a workout in. This week is so jammed packed, I’m not sure when I’m going to get another time to exercise, so I made myself run five miles. Or else! Sometimes that’s just the attitude I use to get myself through a workout. I completed five miles in about 53 minutes, on the treadmill. And I was dripping sweat, literally. I don’t remember ever sweating that much while running! My reward was a goat cheese omelet.
I just used one egg, goat cheese, and 1 slice of double fiber toast. So good! Dessert was one of Becca‘s vegan chocolate chip bars.
And an unpictured small bowl of Edy’s 1/2 the fat Take the Cake ice cream. I needed ice cream after my grueling run! It was motivating me through the miles!
Anyway, here is the news I mentioned earlier. Some of you already know this, but I’ve decided to start taking classes again! I’ve realized within the past year or so, that I’m really interested in nutrition (obviously!), so for a while I had been thinking about going back for a Masters in the subject. A week ago I went to an information session at Sage College in Troy, and I got all of the info about it. I have to take a bunch of support courses before I apply, since I don’t have some of the required ones. I registered to take one course at a community college in the fall and I’m super excited about it! I’m going to have to take one course a semester since I work full-time, and it may take me a really long time to get it done, but I feel like I’m doing the right thing this time. It feels right!
