This day is good! I got to see my family, it’s sunshiney outside (albeit 32 degrees, but whatever), and I’m high on endorphines. Keep it coming!
For some reason my meals haven’t been holding me as well as they normally do, and despite my hearty bowl of oatmeal I was hungry about an hour and a half later. Knowing I was going out to eat, I had an orange so I wouldn’t be ravenous at the restaurant.
Lunch at Trotter’s was, as usual, very nice. We all ordered the same thing: soup & half sandwich combo. The soup (spinach lentil) came with a honey wheat bread stick topped with cheese; I ate about 1/3 and brought the rest home for dinner.
For my sandwich, I ordered the Grilled Avocado with Hot Pepperjack, Sprouts, Red Peppers, Onions, and Mushrooms. Very yummy! I just love sprouts. It came with chips, but I only ate a couple and donated them to my uncle.
I got a skim cappuccino and an Okee Dokee Cookie (no refined sugar, chocolate chip oatmeal, flax, etc) to go. “To go” ended up meaning as soon as I got to my apartment, but I needed the fuel!
My Step Aerobics teacher added an extra Friday class because the demand for Tuesday/Thursday was so high that not everyone was able to fit. I was just sitting around the house reading magazines (er) and decided to go today; exercise classes are so nice because all you have to do is GO and after that don’t have to worry about motivating yourself. There were only six of us, but it was just as strenuous as regular class. Erica and Gina, I don’t know how you do it! Step three times a week is HARD.

Not sure yet what the evening plans are… there are some parties both today and tomorrow so I’m going to try to just pick ONE night to go out so I can get started on my work and not end up being completely stressed out next week. Hope you have a nice night!
P.S. If, like me, you are a poor college student and have a $10 blender that won’t grind ice, or even if you just want to try this bad boy out, head over to Jumbo Empanadas for a chance to win a VITA MIX!!!
