I made it through the Monday! It is actually pretty surprising how well I fared, considering that I didn’t get to bed until after 2am last night! And of course I had trouble falling asleep! Still, I managed to hop out of bed this morning.
For my train breakfast I went a little nuts…
White Chocolate Macadamia Luna Bar and a SWITP almond mini sample. I enjoyed this bar, but nowhere near as much as the Clif version of this same flavor.
My day went pretty well, a parent sat in on my mixed class (the one I mentioned last week with a high % of POs but a low gpa) and was shocked. I feel really bad for parents when the come into our school, as an outsider I imagine it would be mind-boggling. At the same time, he was there because his son cheated on a test last week and then screamed at me when he got caught, so there’s that.
I went tropical for lunch. Rachel’s Low Fat Exotic Yogurt in Mango Pineapple Passionfruit.
Holy yum! In addition to the great flavor this was thick in a just fantastic way; note to self – buy more!
My drink was island inspired too, a marriage of my two favorite things.
As much as I love love love aloe juice and coconut water I ended up not being quite as excited about them together. I guess some things (white dogs – black sweaters; booze – powertools; aloe juice – coconut milk) are best enjoyed separately.
After school I stayed for a bit to meet with students and set up for tomorrow and then headed to the city for a doctor’s appointment (still my disgusting foot). I got there a little early so I scurried over to Whole Foods to hit up the salad bar! I didn’t have a ton of time so I did little tastes to hold me over for dinner.
Clockwise – sesame broccoli, coleslaw, ravioli, okra marsala, falafel. Yum yum yum yum yum! The falafel was disgustingly dry so I took a nibble and pushed it aside but everything else was fabulous. The okra rocked my socks, I officially need to go to an Indian restaurant!
My little tastes made my mouth happy and cost me only $3! I went with the veggie theme on my beverage too, Cell-nique Super Green Drink in Tropical Fruit flavor.
This was very good for me (300%+ vitamin E, 400%+ vitamin C, 84calories a bottle, etc.) but it tasted like what comes out the back of a lawn mower! I chugged the whole thing for the health benefits but got in line to buy a diet coke before I had even finished the last slug!
After my appointment I hurried home and made the wise decision of exercising before I watched the season finale of House. My legs are still sore from Saturday but I really felt like running outside. I made a playlist for my i-pod made up of songs that were all about 1:30 to 2:30. I alternated running/walking with every other song. In the end I did 2.91 miles in 34:57 minutes. Here is the playlist I used –
- Anyone Else But You – Juno Soundtrack
- Hey Julie – Fountains of Wayne
- Semi-Charmed Life – Third Eye Blind
- Loose Lips – Kimya Dawson
- Alright – Osker
- Short, Fast, and Loud – Fall Out Boy
- Vampire – Antsy Pants
- Reinventing the Wheel to Run Myself Over – Fall Out Boy
- Coming Clean – Green Day
- It’s not a Side Effect of the Cocaine, I am Thinking It Must be Love – Fall Out Boy
- Emenius Sleepus – Green Day
- Dreaming of You – The Coral
- In the End – Green Day
- We Nuh Like – Spragga Benz
- Shimmy – System of a Down
- Question – Old 97’s
- Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) – Green Day
When I got home I thoroughly enjoyed the riveting finale of House – I can’t wait for next season. We ate dinner while we watched. I spruced up my leftovers with a healthy dose of this stuff,
to make this drool-worthy bowl.
I utilized another SWITP sample for my dinner drink.
However, 10minutes after dinner I saw a bug on the kitchen counter and promptly puked everywhere. Because I’m a crazy-face. We are pretty much positive the bug came in from outside and in no way touched any food but I’m still a little wary in the kitchen!
I did manage to stomach a trip in there long enough to pack lunch and eat some candy. A and I split this new pack of Hi-Chews.
Melon was good, but certainly not my favorite flavor.
I did some school stuff, looked up directions (I have a fun event tomorrow!), organized my bag. Now I am ready for a shower and some serious hitting of the hay! Don’t let the bedkitchenbugs bite!
