I am really feeling the stress of this semester and I haven’t even been to all of my classes yet!! I have quizzes every Monday and Tuesday and a major test (sometimes two!) every week starting the third week. The perfectionist in me is freaking out, but I must remain calm because I do not have to get straight A’s!!! The work load itself isn’t that bad, it’s just a LOT of testing. I talked to the husband tonight about dropping Stats, but we agreed it made sense to stick it out after weighing the pros and cons (no, we didn’t weigh them on the food scale 8) ) I don’t know how all you college people do it – and how I ever managed 4 years at Davidson without pulling my teeth out!
On to the Taco Salad Mountain!!!
This meal was so easy to whip together and tasted wonderful!!! All the healthy stuff is on the bottom 😉
- Handful of lettuce
- 1/2 cup (plus a little more) low-fat refried beans
- 1 chopped roma tomato
- 1 oz chopped avocado
- 1/4 diced bell pepper
- 1 tbsp minced jalapeños from a jar
- 1 oz colby cheese
- 2 Garden of Eatin’ Blue Corn Taco shells, toasted and crumbled
Some parts were warm, others were cold – but all together it was sooo good!!
Total kcal around 450:
I also had half a piece of the husband’s new rustic bread – which took him 18 hours to make from rise to cool! No photo since he shoved it in my mouth with delight when I walked in the door!
My shoes!! (This is one shoe from each pair, if you didn’t figure that out 🙂 )
I wore the copper ones today and they were VERY comfortable. I did get a few blisters on the back heel, but I think that is just new shoeness that will go away when they break in a bit more. The black ones are really comfy too!! Makes me want to go buy TONS of these kind of shoes – I just love that you can wear them with dressier pants or with jeans and a hoodie!!
Going to answer> some questions and then read in bed. I should be studying!
