As of Late

December 3, 2010

In the past week I have consumed wayyyy too much Starbucks.

Surprisingly, I’m more concerned about the consequence this habit has on my wallet than how much caffeine & sugar I’m taking in.

In the past week I have had zero formal exercise.  I ran a whopping 6.2 total miles last week and have failed to run or do any sort of cardio since last Thursday!!

I have however stuck to my abs and arms challenge.  This morning I did 63 push ups and 146 sits ups, boo-ya, cold!

In the past week I have fancied up my oats.

Eggnog Oats and now, Chocolate Oats.

Chocolate Oats:

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1T cocoa powder
  1. Mix almond milk, water, oats and banana in a pot over medium heat.
  2. Let cook 7 minutes then reduce heat to low and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in cocoa powder and top away.

Topped with:

  • pumpkin granola
  • 1t peanut butter
  • Crofter’s
  • 1t honey to sweeten the oats up

Drool worthy.

In the past week I have developed my “typical cold” aka 3 days of sore throat —-> 2 weeks of coughing/sniffling/stuffiness.  I actually prefer the 2 weeks of congestion to the sore throat.  My body feels fine besides the occasional need to cough up a lung.

In the past week I have juggled school-related stress, a cold, and having to work till 2 A.M. while successfully getting enough sleep.  I’m impressed!

In the past week I have realized how much I appreciate Joey during times when I’m stressed out.

I came home to find this tiny empty jar in our pantry.

I’m so glad I have a boyfriend who saves tiny jars because he knows his girlfriend will make some use of it or at least find it funny.  Or maybe he kept it for himself…

I really am amused by the cuteness of something like a tiny jar.

It’s also nice to have someone who makes your lunch for you.

Those pimentos are definitely hiding in there.

It’s also nice (I guess) to have someone there to tell you no when you mention having Nyquil oats the next morning.

Despite some of the potentially dangerous habits I’ve been participating in, i.e. over-Starbucking, staying up till horrendous hours of the early morning, minimal exercising I have to admit I’ve been feeling great!  I’m doing the best I can given my homework load, work schedule and current health and that makes me happy 🙂

It makes me happy that it’s Friday too!
