It’s possible that some higher blog being is telling me not to blog; first the cord, then the internet!
Good evening ladies and gentlemAn! I hope your Wednesday has gone beautifully. Mine has been just fine, thank you, grâce à my lovely roommate who found my long-lost cord on top of the fridge next to the recycling box. Yeah, I don’t know either.
Have you ever seen such a beautiful thing?
[Imagine a bag of almonds here… for some reason, my pictures don’t want to upload.]
I went for a 3 mile walk/jog/sprint. Although I wasn’t running for the whole three miles (there was about .5 miles of walking, in .25 spurts) it was important for me to see the 3.0 on the treadmill screen before I started my cooldown. One day I’ll be able to do it.
I also did some abs, but the football team was waiting to use the mats so I got self-conscious and surrendered my spot.

Anywho, my night class was canceled (the whole campus has some kind of horrible stomach plague… probably what most of you bloggies seem to be coming down with) so I went to an event, for seniors, on interview etiquette. (What not to wear! Don’t pick your teeth! Don’t bite your food… pop it all in! That’s kind of a weird one, don’t you think? I think it looks like you have bad manners if you’re just cramming food into your mouth with blind abandon.)
Before I left, I was feeling quite hungry so I munched on some carrots.
I had a cup of hot apple cider when I got there. No, it was not hard… everything was of the “soft” variety.
After the presentation, they had us eat things that were particularly difficult (large strawberries… remember, only one bite!), spanikopita triangles (spinach sticks in your teeth) and had even laid out raw scallions by the crudité. Honestly!
I was hungry, so I went back for a second plate. I had quite a bit of cheese!
When I got home, I was in a bit of a debate with myself about whether or not I was actually hungry. I didn’t want to eat the big dinner I’d planned on having, so I settled for a PB&J with banana, then read Emily’s blog, and added some raisins and cinnamon.
I broiled it on both sides, and it was perfection. Yum!
Than I had some stress fuel dessert and went to bed pretty soon after.
I don’t know why, but I’ve been having SUCH a hard time getting up recently. I snoozed for TWO HOURS this morning, and I really can’t afford to do that because I have a French paper to write!
For breakfast, I microwaved egg whites with a Laughing Cow light wedge, a Morningstar farms sausage patty with Russian ketchup, and a Thomas’ Cinnamon Raisin English muffin with B&B, Russian honey and blueberry jelly.
And my morning savior along with some vitamins.
Are any of you doing the SELF Jump Start Challenge? I always start it but end up stopping because it’s so time-consuming… meticulously entering each food into the database. If you are doing it, do you have any suggestions for me?
Have a great day!
