You know those dark mornings? Well, I’m still working on getting used to it…
Consumed: 1/4 C oats mixed with non-fat blueberry Greek yogurt and topped with frozen blueberries. Left in fridge overnight. Topped in the morning with a bit of granola and small scoop of sunflower seed butter.
Unlike yesterday’s practice run, today I actually had to keep things moving so that I would get to classes on time. Guess I underestimated my abilities to get ready, because not only did I pull myself together, but I even had time to saute up some mushrooms and onions for my lunch!
And, let me tell you, nothing goes better with breakfast than the smell of sautéing vegetables…
The real perk was that while my veggies were sauteing low-and-slow, I had time to snap a couple “first day of winter semester of junior year of college” pictures.
I’ll be nice and spare you all the syllabus-giving details, but I will mention that I’m really excited about my classes this semester. It’s going to be an interesting test with how disciplined I am, but I think the interesting subject matter will help keep me inspired (which is always more of a challenge during spring semester).
The other challenge is that, because my classes are only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, those days are pretty long. To keep sane, I have to take breaks when I can get them — Even if that means consuming lunch during a short break in the journalism resource center!
Consumed: Spring salad with dollop of hummus and some of the aforementioned sautéed veggies. Served with half a sunflower seed butter on whole grain sandwich, an apple and a chocolate cookie.
Two long, long classes later, I was free for the
afternoon evening. That’s the thing about these days, they go by slowly when I am in class, but then I look back and the day’s all done with!
That just means that I got to move straight onto dinner.
After dinner was the real highlight of the day, when Dan came over to watch the Kansas vs. Colorado basketball game. Especially because we both had long days at school, it was nice to sit back, relax, have some Moose Tracks ice cream and enjoy a Jayhawk win (albeit a close one)!
We were both pretty wiped out, but we did have the energy to look at some possible honeymoon options. Currently we are leaning toward a Caribbean cruise, but aren’t entirely sure where to start. What we know is that we love being active (hiking, swimming, biking, etc.) but also like the chance to dress up for nice dinners… Any suggestions?
