I would be lying if I said I got out of bed for anything other than coffee this morning. I’ve got a bit of a case of the Monday Blues, which I think I can contribute to my stats class from 4:10-6:50. Long class at an awkward time with a quiz tonight. Once I get home from that, I have to finish grading the online dietary supplements class that I TA for, because tonight is the end of grading period one and there is still a handful of people who haven’t submitted their assignments. Now I understand why teachers hate it so much when students leave things for the last minute!
I’m sorry I’m such a complainer today! The good news is I accomplished a lot yesterday and I’m feeling more and more ready for the big day Friday.
I started out with a delicious breakfast yesterday! Oatmeal cooked with unsweetened almond milk, and topped with Wegman’s frozen fruit cherry blend (highly recommend!), organic peanut butter, and Bob’s Red Mill coconut flakes. Pumpkin coffee on the side of course!
I cruised through my medical nutrition therapy domain yesterday, which accounts for 50% of the test so I’m feeling pretty good!
I took a lunch break around 1, and it was beautiful out so I sat on the porch.
I slapped together my favorite sandwich- whole wheat bread with hummus, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and cheese, and crunched on an organic apple on the side!
After lunch, I decided to clean the apartment. Have you ever reached a point in your work where literally anything (even cleaning the toilet) sounds more appealing? Seriously, cleaning the toilet and doing the dishes was more enjoyable than looking through my binder again.
After my cleaning rampage, I decided to go to a hot yoga class. On Wednesdays I have a class called The Mindful Therapist, and our assignment from last week was to go to a formal yoga class. No complaints here! The studio is only half a mile away from my apartment, so I decided to walk. I love being able to rack up steps on my FitBit!
I was ravenous when I got back home, so I whipped up a single serve Annie’s white cheddar mac and cheese and a salad on the side. I buy the single serve because they help me with portion control. They’re a little more expensive, but it keeps me from overeating so they’re worth the extra price to me.
I threw some quinoa on top of the mac and cheese for some extra protein and fiber!
After dinner and a quick shower, it was back to work. Studying for school, grading, followed by three hours of RD exam studying! I asked Cameron to help me go through my massive pile of notecards, which keeps growing by the way!
He was nice enough to go through every single index card with me (while watching the new Family Guy/Simpson’s crossover episode last night! Hilarious!), which took until almost midnight.
He enjoyed throwing them all over the freshly cleaned apartment as he read each one off.
I did snack after dinner last night as a study break, but I was a bad food blogger and forgot to take a picture! I had a bowl of Kashi Berry Blossoms with almond milk and a banana.
I’m off to make breakfast and pack a lunch for campus. Enjoy your Monday!
