Good evening! The week is already halfway done for me, and I’ve just been informed that I have one month and six days left of college. Yikes!
I took a glorious two-hour nap this morning, then woke up and made lunch. I mixed one 5 oz can of tuna with 1/3 avocado, one small canned tomato, red onion, mustard and lemon juice, and plopped it on a bed of romaine.
I also had one of the messiest pink grapefruits.
Got my news and vitamins on and ate in about ten minutes. The nap was worth it, though!
I snacked on a Banana Bread Lärabar throughout the day.
I went to thirty minutes of Step today and did about five minutes of arms and back on the way out. I love running outside, but since I’ve started I haven’t been doing any strength training at all.

I went to Whole Foods later to get some necessities, and I’m pleased to report that the date/fig/nut crisis is over and I am fully stocked.
I saw this recipe on Jenna’s blog last night and had almost the same ingredients so I decided to make a similar dish. It’s pretty similar to the curry I made last week, but this uses tempeh instead of tofu.
I used sesame oil instead of coconut, and added some spinach and canned tomatoes to bulk up the veggie content.
When Kristina sent me the Oikos coupons she also sent me coupons for other Stonyfield Farms products. I decided to put one to good use when I was at Whole Foods, and got this After Dark Nonfat Frozen Yogurt.

It had a really creamy, deep dark taste. I would definitely buy it again, especially when I added these!
Last week when I saw my aunt, she told me she’d been eating a lot of chocolate fro-yo with mandarin orange slices. I wanted to try it out, but bought pear halves by mistake! It was still delicious with the frozen yogurt and half of a No-Pudge Chunky Monkey brownie.
The other half of the brownie was feeling lonely, though, so I ate it.
I’m off to watch Heroes with Ari on iChat. Have a great night!
