Studying on Saturday

The last five or six Saturday’s of my life have been either

a. FE Review class 8am-5pm

OR

b. Early morning race and THEN class until 5pm

 

Today was no different. I then continued my long day by spending another four hours studying for my Thermo test. MY LIFE = Studying.

When will my life be normal?!?

I am studied out! Honestly though, my grades stink worse then my trash can. I NEED to do well on these tests… my future (aka graduating, getting out of massive debt, and moving away with Jason) depends on it!

Sorry, I needed to vent!

 

Now onto what you REALLY want to read about… FOOD!

I started my morning off with a bowl mug of Oatmeal. It’s easier to take it on the go this way.

It had the usual… with banana and almond butter.

Jason ate my leftover sushi, which was disappointing, but I decided to make sushi wraps!

I basically took a whole wheat wrap, spread a decent amount of sundried tomato hummus, added deli meat, and sprouts. Then, I wrapped it up, and cut into cute little bite sized pieces!

I packed the “sushi” with 2 carrots and extra hummus:

I like to have mini-meals when I’m at school, so I also packed a cut up honey crisp apple…

… and a pumpkin pie Kashi bar. These things taste like dessert, but are actually pretty healthy!

Time to wrap this post up! I’ll finish up the day’s eats in the morning. You will have to wait in suspense until then. I made a very “fall” meal, and had a “glo”-ing dessert! 😀

Teriyaki Tofu Triangles

That’s a tongue twister!

For lunch, I wanted to use up the other half block of tofu. I would end up throwing it away otherwise. I got a little creative, and cut them into cute little triangles!

I marinated them in teriyaki sauce for 30 minutes while I studied, and then grilled them on the George Foreman grill.

Along with it, I had carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli with the same marinade. I sprinkled it all with sesame seeds!

Yummy lunch!

Soon after, I wanted sugar! I busted out some cantaloupe…

I wasn’t really hungry this afternoon, but with a 12.0 miler on the schedule tomorrow, I need to make sure I fuel up adequately. I munched on some pita chips, hummus, and more veggies:

I packed a snack for my break between classes, which is at 7:15pm. I picked up this new (to me) flavor of Stonyfield yogurt, Super Fruits. I packed raspberries on the side to mix in!

IMG_0675

It was a great idea! This flavor was very fresh tasting, and the berries were a perfect addition!

When I got home from class, I was distracted by this:

Water from the ice pack used to pack the yogurt leaked out of my cooler and into my bag, getting ALL my school papers soaked!

IMG_0682

As much as I hated doing it, I saved that shiz.

While this was going on I tried to think of the fastest possible way to get food into my belly. A sandwich sounded awesome. The grill was still out from lunch, so I whipped up a panini!

I think the fact that it was warm made it so much better!!! Oh, and the bread was free thanks to Foodbuzz! 😀

IMG_0681 

It had:

  • 2 Slices Nature’s Pride Bread- 12 Grain
  • turkey slices
  • cheddar cheese
  • tomato
  • sprouts
  • mustard

I’m off to bed! Waking up at an Un-godly hour to run 12.0 miles!

My Manic Monday

Good morning, and happy Monday! Err…Can Monday’s BE happy?

I have a JAM PACKED day starting with a lab at 7:30am, Test at 9:30 am, 2 Assignments due at noon, Field Trip at 3, and then class from 4:30-10:20. YIKES!

 

I woke up extra early this morning to get my stuff together and out the door on time. I never have time to work out on Monday’s so I take that as my rest day every week. Before I left, I made a nice warm bowl of Pumpkin Oatmeal!

IMG_0586

This time, I topped it with plain Oikos and some dried cranberries. YUM!

IMG_0589

Since I will have a full field trip recap after dinner, I figured I’ll give you a lunch preview! I packed a lunchbox full of stuff, and I’m planning on stopping for a smoothie after my field trip (my punch card is full, time for a free one!).

I have no idea when I will eat all this, but I’m pretty sure it will all hold me til 5:00 pm when I get a smoothie! 😀

 

I packed a whole wheat wrap with spinach, hummus, and turkey.

 IMG_0577

It’s easier for me to eat half at a time because I usually have to be sneaky about eating in class or labs. I don’t really have a lunch break time.

IMG_0580

For mid-day snacks…

Leftover cantaloupe from yesterday’s lovely brunch…

IMG_0581

…a honeycrisp apple

I pack a napkin and plastic baggie because I always make a mess! I eat the apple, whip my hands, and throw the core into the baggie. It pays to be prepared.

IMG_0583

string cheese… (gotta get that Calci-yummm!)

IMG_0582

…and a mini CLIF bar.

IMG_0584 

I realize that I have tons of snacks, and a small wrap, but it’s easier for me to eat this way on busy days. I don’t have time for a full blown lunch, but I need to keep my energy up for my manic Monday!!

I have my stuff all packed up, my change of clothes… I think I’m ready for the day. Off to take my test!

See you tonight! 😀
