Day 57 - Stresssssss

Posted by: RolyPolyPrincess In: Food Stuff| Rambling| exercise| nutrition

I might’ve fallen back into old habits today… I have only eaten about 900 calories today and it’s 9:22PM. This is mostly due to all the crap I’ve had to do today. I ate 3 meals and 1 snack. So I’ll eat another snack before bed and probably call it a night.

Today was my day off. One day a week I get a day with no work or school. But it’s never a day off. It’s a save-everything-I-have-to-do-till-this-day day. Had to goto campus for some research stuff, did some cleaning around the apartment, hung some pictures, went to the bank, dropped some packages off at FedEx, took a short 30 minute walk, and did laundry. 3 loads of laundry. How does 2 people accumulate SO MUCH laundry in a week??? uggh.

So I feel like I have to talk about this smoothie I just made. Honestly, I made it because I wanted something heathy to boost my calories for the day. Here’s the recipe:

1/2 Cup frozen strawberry & banana pieces - 45 calories

2 Tbls Hershey’s SF Syrup - 15 calories

3 Tbls 0% Fage Greek Yogurt - 25 calories

4 Tbls Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk - 5 calories

All together, around 90 calories. Made almost exactly 8oz of smoothie… which is about perfect for me. Much more than that and I get tired of drinking them.

It was pretty delicious. Nice and think and chocolately. I couldn’t taste a ton of strawberry, but you could tell it was in there… I wanna experiment with adding spinach to my smoothies. Or maybe flax? Just boost the nutritional value of them, really.

So like I said, I walked like 30 minutes tonight. We have a ton of wooded trails and cross country trails on campus. I picked one of those and walked it. It didn’t seem like a long walk, but it was getting dark before I knew it. It’s in a wooded area, so it’s mostly dirt and natural stone. It was pretty hilly too. It was nice. I think that’s where I want to do most of my running. It’ll be nice and shady and kind of away from everyone. Seemed peaceful. I’ll make my running time my zen time.

I have a statistics test tomorrow that I need to review for. I hate stats soooo much. I’m pulling a good, solid B out of the class right now. And honestly, I hate it so much, I’ll probably continue being satisfied with a B. As long as it doesn’t get any lower than that, I’m happy. I’d kinda prefer a B+ though… haha

I hope everyone is having wonderful weeks! For those of you that get to enjoy time off on the weekends, only 2 more days! (:

Here’s to hard work and determination,
