Hey friends… it’s pretty hectic over here Chez Rebeca.  I don’t know how to explain it but I don’t like doing things halfway.  Which means that I make lots of lists and lately my own education has been at the top of that list (and rightfully so).  Unfortunately, that means after hours of reading, writing and messing around with other people’s computers (my minor is in Information Systems which is heavily PC and I don’t own one, so I mess around on other peoples :mrgreen:) I have little left for my blog.

I have these fab plans with a fellow blogger though that I can’t wait to share with you!

Meanwhile, I’m jumping on a couple of bandwagons.

First, I’m making study/index cards for my classes.  Say what? I haven’t done that since way back in my AP/IB days.  No wonder I had that killer GPA ;)  In all seriousness though, I know that it helps but usually I’m hesitant to “waste” paper and it takes quite a bit of time… but my computer class tests are HARD and I think these will help with the ton of memorization (my upper level Child Development/Education classes are so different!).  Note: I’m the “ill” studier I just changed my style to fit my schedule and I think I need to change my schedule to fit my style!

Second, I finally tried Honey Sunshine.

Kashi sent out free samples for signing up for something (I don’t remember what :oops:).  It was okay.  I think I was expecting something different.  It’d certainly be a fun “base” cereal since it’s low calorie but sweeter than most of my “bases.”

Third, I made a meal plan for the week.  I checked out sales, my cookbooks and thought up some yummy meals for the week that will make it easier (I hope to make healthy choices- a big struggle lately).

Breakfasts

  • Blueberry Smoothie
  • Banana “Split”
  • Egg Sandwich on English Muffin
  • Apple Pie Oatmeal

Dinners

  • Falafels
  • Rice and Beans
  • Grilled Cheese + Tomato Soup
  • Slow Cooker Chili
  • Spinach+ Feta Brown Rice Bowl w/ Tempeh
  • Mini Frittatas

Lunches

  • PB+J spirals
  • Tuna+Veggie Melt
  • Leftovers

I have tried and failed many times to meal plan and where I fail is restricting the days and “overplanning” (the story of my life).  This week I just picked the right number of meals for each “category” and then left things open.  I have yogurts, veggies and fruit to go along with the meals so I can go based on my mood but still have guidelines to help.  I’m pretty excited about all the items on my list actually and it’s exciting to see what I’ll actually pick (at least for me it is :)).

Fourth, notice a breakfast missing?

(looks kind of gross but trust it’s fabulous)

Oh… there it is. My goodness, this started my day on a positive note.  I don’t know who started it but try it.  It made the loss of my jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams much more bearable.  In fact, I only cried for 10 minutes ;)

I can’t wait to share my fun eats with you this week.  Hope you all had a great start to the week as well!
