I don’t watch much TV and now I don’t know where the remote is.  It has helped me focus on school (well not really after all there’s always hulu.com) but I will need it after this week because I plan to spend many hours catching up on my DVR… I totally deserve it!

My (school work) to do list is slowly diminishing!  Thank goodness!

The past few days have been full of ‘grab and go’ eats… although they were all yummy!

Just a sampling of the highlights 😀

Today, I woke up at 6:49.  I don’t think I’ve ever done that, willingly, on a Sunday… unless it had to do with catching a flight for a vacation.  I just jumped out of bed and started moving.  I took out the trash and recycling, then washed dishes, made breakfast and got to work!

For some reason, I’ve been really craving citrus-y fruits lately.  I’ve been eyeing the lemons in my fridge even!  Cold, orange slices may be my new favorite snack!

Then I made a smoothie because I wasn’t hungry, but I felt empty.  You know?

Chocolate protein, plain soymilk, water, fat free yogurt, half a banana and lots of whirrrring in my blender…  It took me two hours to drink it all and was the perfect thing to have while attempting to get through chapters and chapters of reading.

A few hours later I decided to break for lunch.  I think I ate then more for the break time, than out of hunger.  Oh well.

Turkey, greens and a little olive oil mayo on… waffles?!?!?  Yeah, they are the easiest to defrost from my freezer and lately I can taste freezerburn on my bread and english muffins.  That could just be my imagination but I didn’t feel like dealing with it today.  These wholegrain ‘kids’ waffles had a slight sweetness to them that really complimented the savory tastes of my sandwich.  Yum!

Dinner was comforting all the way.  Summer Squash, Spinach, Tomatoes, a Morningstar Chick’un Tender, a little Pesto and WW Pasta with Fresh Parsley and Pinenuts on top.  It ended up being too much. 😳 So I saved the extra veggies and I’ll use them tomorrow with my dinner (don’t know what that’ll be yet).

Even though dinner was too much, I really wanted something warm and chocolatey… but I didn’t want to break the bank calorically.

Enter, the studmuffin 😉  Yum!

I love good food days- I’m within my calorie range, I got fruits and veggies, and pasta and chocolate… Love Love Love.

Time to get ready for another week… but I’m going to Atlantic City (shopping, not gambling) on Saturday.  I can make it through :mrgreen:
