This was one of those week’s that kind of disappeared. I don’t know that I got much accomplished in terms of school, my apartment is a mess, and I feel a little out of it, but I think it was a good week overall!
Tonight I’m heading home again to go back and finish up at the doctor’s. I’m also seeing the chiropractor again about my hip. He told me to go for a short run between the appointments, but based on the fact that I hobbled to school today in pain at a walking speed, I don’t think even a “short” run is going to really benefit me. I can run on the treadmill there if they need to see how it feels…holy smokes I want this to feel better!
Anyways, there’s a snow storm in the forecast for tonight (or at least some bad highway conditions), so I’m considering staying over. I can take home some homework or at least my computer (cuz then I can do work potentially…or just blog!) and come back tomorrow morning. No pressure.
Last night I made myself the pasta I was hungry for on Wednesday. I added some parmesan cheese, ground beef, and frozen broccoli to round it out.
Even though I knew dessert was okay and had plans to go for fro yo (in the freezing cold, but that’s okay!), I still found myself drawn tot he chocolate in my cupboard. Only with time and seeing that it’s OK to have that dessert will I really be able to leave this behaviour behind. As tempting as it is to say, “no this is NOT working and I am going to keep overeating and it’s not worth it” that is just ED. I can do this.
I did some yoga in my apartment, realizing I had no homework that was really daunting. I hoped it would help my hip…but nah.
Fro yo was awesome. My normal chocolate plus a little hazelnut, topped with skor bits, chocolate chips, and some hot fudge (and the absolutely necessary cherry on top).
I wasn’t alone though! This was a special fro yo date!
I was with Andrea (whose birthday we were celebrating), Chelsea from One Healthy Munchkin, and Meg from A Dash of Meg (who had a tummy ache and just joined us for the company). We had a good chit chat and left with happy bellies and happy hearts!
I was up late looking for inspirational cheese and I’ll share a few gems:
This morning my alarm was really really really not something I wanted to hear. I slept in til 7 (ha ha, sleeping in til 7) but I am in 8:30 class (oops) so I had to get up!
The promise of breakfast helped…but it was one of those “well I made it so I might as well eat it” things:
The Kashi GoLean Crisp! Cinnamon Crumble cereal that I got earlier this week was…okay. I don’t know if I’m sold on it and to be honest it tastes really reminiscent of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. In the past I might have said that’s awesome…but I’m at the point where I like the taste of healthy things and the idea that I could eat something that’s pseudo healthy but tastes like sugary cereal or something “unhealthy” isn’t really up my alley. If I want something sweet and cinnamon-y I can eat the real thing…I’m going to stick to my crunchier, boring – er Kashi, me thinks!
I made it to campus (slow and steady) early cuz I left about 45 minutes before class time. How? I am literally wearing leggings and a huge Western sweater that should only be reserved for my apartment…but it’s Friday so it’s okay, right? And cuz I wanted a coffee…I’m out of half and half so this morning’s black coffee was not as good as the big one I got when I got to campus…
Andddddd the best blogging occurs in class, wouldn’t you agree?
What are you up to this weekend?
Have you tried the Cinnamon Crumble cereal? How do you feel about stuff that tastes like other “less healthy” things?
Do you like ice cream/fro yo in the dead of winter?
