What a day!!! It was exciting, exhausting, busy, freezing cold, hungry, crazy and fun!!
Physio lab went well. It’s all computerized, which is a little bit of a disappointment, but it means I won’t have to wash a single beaker or clean up a spilled chemical all year! I’ve got a major test almost every week between now and May, but I just have to remember that tests are more fun than what I’ve been doing the past 2 years with my life (working in a field I didn’t love). Despite being my hardest class by far, physio is going to be really, really cool. Today’s lab was about the enzymes that break down carbs, fat and protein and the different factors that affect them (pH, temperature, etc.) I’ve loved the human body since I was very young, so this is sort of my dream course!
After Physio I decided I should stay on campus and FINALLY do that stats homework I’ve been putting off (I can see how people do fail online courses!). It took me much longer than planned (I had to teach myself probability, then apply it to problems for practice and then take the 30-question quiz!) so I didn’t leave campus until 6 p.m. When lab ended I was pretty starving and had a KIND bar that I picked up this weekend. Jenna was right, these bars are GREAT!! I have a new favorite! Although I don’t think any bar really holds me more than an hour or so because I was starving again at 6pm. This one was banana bran – sorry the photo isn’t that great.
I came home to a hot sweet potato in the oven (but if you’re time pressed and live alone you could just nuke one!) and we had baked potatoes topped with black beans, hot sauce, Fage and cinnamon. Sounds strange, but it was delicious – and quite filling! Plus, all SuperFoods!
On the side I had some Italian blend lettuce with pomegranate seeds, balsamic and HONEY! Honey is my new favorite salad dressing. I just barely drizzle it on and it goes perfectly with the balsamic and adds just the right amount of sweet flavor (Honey + Pom = two more SuperFoods!)
Since I’ve been freezing all day, I had hot tea with dinner. All together for about 420 kcal:
For the record, I had 5 graham sticks (nibbling!) and a tbsp of granola right out of the box. My hands got into them when I was making my lunch for tomorrow and wanted something crunchy! Unfortunately they dissapeared before my camera got over there so I thought the boxes would be good visuals
Off to read in bed with my guy!
