Studywalking

April 28, 2009

Is the best way to study!

  1. It’s fresh air
  2. It’s exercise
  3. (Most importantly) There are no distractions (TV, internet, doorbells, kitchen)

KLM and I went on an hour walk with my Food Science flashcards. I feel 85% of the way there. It’s my first exam tomorrow at 11:30, followed by a 5pm Clinical test (not cumulative, thank goodness).

After the walk it was time for the pot-luck!

I heated up the remaining calzone in the oven for about 15 minutes and we split it. Definitely was not as good today, but a plus was that it was tough enough to eat “hot pocket” style with my hands.

Kelsey brought these bright salads –

Romaine, pepper, carrot, cuc, celery, olives plus a homemade dressing, a dollop of her goat cheese, 2 scoops of my avocado and 2 tbsp of Matt’s bean dip from yesterday. SO good.

We went 50/50 on the fruits – her grapefruit, my strawberries.

I received Danica’s package with the Annie’s dressings I won!! Thanks Danica!!

Can’t WAIT to try these :)

She also included a few more fun things – love Annie’s mac n’ cheese! And checkout that cute vegetable card :)

Now I am walking to the shopping center to meet Victoria for Biochem. And probably stopping into HT for a few groceries.

See ya tonight!

Yummy lunch and what a sweet care package.

That calzone looks so tasty! I am going to have to try to make those =)

Have a great day!

Usually I love leftover calzone, too bad yours wasn’t as good.
I love your pot luck lunches and i think a friend and I are adopting your idea for Fridays, she is moving to an apartment right down the street from me and I’m so looking forward to having someone within walking distance!

Looks like you made good use out of the leftover calzone! I agree that foods like that are never quite as good re-heated.

Great salad and I love the hint of fruit on the side! YUM!

Good luck studying this afternoon!

Question: Have you ever tried added plain, no sugar added applesauce to your oatmeal? I have some leftover and was wondering how this combo would work out. Do you think it would work? How much do you think I should add?
Thanks Kath!

I actually think the applesauce idea sounds really good!

What a colorful salad! I may have to try study walking-hopefully I don’t run into anyone!

lunch looks delish! I’m glad you were able to walk outside — it’s been pouring here for hours!

Have a great afternoon ;)

If only there were a way to read/comment on blogs while walking. Oh yeah, I guess its an iPhone…

In reference to a comment above about adding apple sauce to oatmeal. That is my all time favorite oatmeal combo. I do a regular serving of oatmeal, mix in half a cup of applesauce and top with lots of cinnamon. The texture is great and it fills me up.

What beautiful weather – it’s snowing where I am!

I tried to post this on the breakfast post but I think it got lost somewhere…

Has anybody made sourdough bread before? I just posted about it on my blog – whatmegansmaking.blogspot.com. I am having a hard time getting it right and could use some advice. I also left a comment for matt at brewandbake. If anybody has any suggestions for sourdough bread that won’t brown and doesn’t really taste like sourdough, let me know – I’d be very grateful! Thanks! :)

Studywalking .. Hmmm…any idea how many calories you burn? I am thinking of making that part of my day as you have inspired my to continue in my studies. I need to lose some lbs. perhaps a midday walk would amp up the old metabolism.

Lunch looks fantastic! Love the colors of that salad!!

Can’t wait for your review on the dressings!

Hi Kath! So glaad you got your goodies and they arrived safely! Can’t wait to hear what you think – you picked two of my favorites. I LOVE using the gingerly Vinaigrette as a marinade.

Your lunch still looks awesome today – you are making me want a calzone for sure.

Good luck studying and shopping – HT = stress release break :)

I’d love to see a pic of you study-walking :)

Gingerly vinaigrette is one of my faves! I hope you enjoy it.

I used to study-walk with a friend whenever I had memorizing to do for an exam. It worked like a charm. Good luck on the exam!

studying and exercising at the same time = always a good plan.

23 Rose-Anne April 28, 2009 at 2:11 pm

I used to read the newspaper as I delivered it on foot to my newspaper customers. They always got such a kick out of it! Your study-walking reminds me of those days :-)

When I was in college, though, I always used exercise as a way of getting AWAY from the books!

I bought the Lite Gingerly Vinaigrette the other day. I LOVE it!!! At that time I also got Annie’s Lite Honey Mustard Vinaigrette, which is also very good!!!

Good luck on your exams. Clinicals was always way harder than food science for me.

i know you did the whole video tutorial on studywalking and all, but i still don’t think i could manage it without bumping into other people at every step! it would be such a perfect way to multi-task, though …

your potluck with kelsey worked out perfectly, as usual. you guys are so good at balancing what you bring!

Dang you get a lot of freebies! Lucky duck.

I don’t think I can read and walk at the same time… I’d surely walk off the sidewalk and onto the road!

love me some Annies and I love your flowers Kath!

I have that ginger salad dressing so I’m looking forward to your review! I thought you weren’t big on packaged dressings though (ok…now I just realized how sad it is that I know your condiment preferences and can question you about them…)

35 Kaley April 28, 2009 at 4:40 pm

I walk and read all the time (to class, from class, etc.) and people are astounded by it!

36 Kara April 28, 2009 at 5:44 pm

Oooh I can’t wait to see the reviews on those.

Heather ,
I never have applesauce on hand, but sounds like a winner.

Sarah (lovINmytummy),
If I had one, you know I would :)

Mitzi ,
Cool!! Thanks for stopping by :)

Rachel ,
There’s a video at FatFighterTV’s Weight Loss Woo Hoo page!

Hallie ,
You are correct – I like very few bottled dressings (and canned soups!) but I really do like Annie’s. They don’t taste fake to me (probably from lack of onion flakes). They taste like I made them. At least the Woodstock and Tahini ones do. We’ll see about these!

I love that Annie’s Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette! It’s the star of my favorite summer salad with grilled peppers and orzo!
