I stayed up until 12:30 writing and it is FINISHED!!! I could spend a few hours revising and polishing, but I’ve learned that at this stage in the game of my academic pursuit, my time is better spent elsewhere 🙂
As a result of my late night fun, I slept until 8:45 this morning!!! I actually woke up at 7:30 and knew I hadn’t gotten enough sleep. I was wide awake, but before I knew it I woke up again at 8:45. Almost 8 hours on the nose! I had planned to go to 8AM spinning today, but I knew that wouldn’t’ be happening by bedtime. I’ll just have to have a magazine rock out session at the gym in a bit.
My Oikos recipe is…
Greek Pumpkin Breakfast Soup
No olives, no feta, no baklava – just Oikos Greek yogurt 🙂
Blend together –
- 1 container plain Oikos
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/2 cup milk of your choice
- 1 tiny banana or half a large banana
- Sprinkle cinnamon
- Sprinkle nutmeg
- 1 tsp maple syrup or agave
Top with granola and enjoy in a bowl!
The winner of the contest gets an all expenses paid weekend trip for two to the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Lenox, MA to be taken sometime in 2010. I’m entering my Oikos recipe above and a word on why I need a little more “ohm” in my life –
2.5 years of chemistry 101 (probably the worst!), organic chemistry, biochemistry, labs, foodservice equipment, MNT, grant writing, metabolism, vitamins and minerals, nutrition education, statistics, physiology, medical terminology, flash cards, article reviews, group work ( 👿 ), research papers, tests, powerpoints, presentations, FINALS, commutes to South Carolina, and a 6 month internship……………my brain is more stuffed with information than a belly after Thanksgiving Dinner!
Meditation or Metabolism?
More ohm…….and less ohmygoshihaveanotherpapertowrite!
Also with breakfast I tried a coffee a blog reader sent to me. It’s made with mushrooms!? It contains an organic herb known as ganoderma (one of the oldest mushrooms used in Chinese medicine.) Apparently this herb helps detox the body, balance ph level of the body, increase the immune system, provide energy, increase stamina, oxygenate the body, reduce jitter and caffeine crash. I agreed to give it a try to be nice…
What I DID like was that there was a nice foam that developed on the top. But once that was gone, I only tasted dark roast instant coffee 🙁 I’m not feeling any magic either…but we’ll see.
I have a testimony on funds for a community garden in public high schools to give in class today…gotta go practice that. Then workout. Then lunch. Then 2 classes.
Tomorrow: paper #2
I did the worst one first, so hopefully this one on omega-3s and tumor metabolism won’t be as painful 😉 It’s my last assignment EVER!
