HELP!

So, I recently bought JayRobbs Egg White protein

so yuck.

IT TASTED LIKE THEY MIGHT HAVE SWITCHED SALT FOR SUGAR!

I have never tasted something so salty in my life, it was inedible. Maybe it was this batch?!?! IDK…

Well, I am going out tomorrow to get a different brand, as well as some stevia :) mmm!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BRAND?!?! I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR ADVICE!!!

Slow start, but a SOLID finish!

So, my FIRST goes off at 7:30am, and got shut off. My SECOND alarm went off at 8am, and I shut it off. BUT I FAILED TO WAKE UP. Once I did wake up, my clock said 10:10am, and I had to leave for class at 11:30am. This means: NO MORNING GYM TIME :( UGH!

So, I simply thought “Fortunately, I get out of class at 6:30pm. I will bring a snack and hit the gym after!”

I grabbed a couple cups of coffee and made some breakfast:

The ingrediants for an AMAZING breakfast!

SO GOOD!

Classes were crazy. I just want this semester to be FINISHED! I brought a few things to snack on in case I went into a hunger coma while in class and needed some sugaaa to energize me!

Yummy snacks; I only ate the banana though.

I wasn’t hungry during class && just wanted the banana to fuel up for an AWESOME workout!

CARDIO feels SOOOO good. I’m not sure why, but it really feels great to get those endorphines pumpin!

My parents saved me some of their veggies they made for their dinner (how they knew I was craving veggies post-workout, I will never figure out!)

The appetizer:

Roasted Asparagus on a bed of broccoli & squash!

Tonight I just REALLY wanted some veggies!!! I always eat a protein snack at night, and because this meal was at 8pm, I kept it light:

Peas, carrots, corn, lima beans, and green beans :)

YUMMY IN MY TUMMY.

Now, off to make a yogurt snack and work on some art for my class tomorrow!

Someone has STOLEN my camera :(

I’ve had a YUCKY virus for the past few days.. fever, sore throat, aches, YUCK!

BUT I’m mostly better, and TOTALLY stressing about school stuff. THE END OF THE YEAR IS SO SOON!

I can’t wait to get through these past next few weeks! UGH!

BOOORRRINGGGG post, but I figured a boring post is better than NO post!

I NEED TO MAKE A LISTS for: – goals  – to do  – to stop  – assignments due  

TOO MUCH IN MY HEAD!!!!

QUESTIONS!!!!

1) I want to get a couple of protein powders this Sunday, and I’m debating whether to get a Whey protein OR a Vegan Protein OR a Brown Rice protein… Hmm… My goal is to lean up but not to BULK up!

2) What is YOUR favorite night time snack???

The day of the strokes.

Today was a day that was WONDERFUL and TERRIBLE all at the same time.

I am a FIRM believer in BAD news first, followed by the GOOD because it’s important to end on a HAPPY note when possible.

THE SAD:

-I found out my dad’s good friend passed away from heart failure this afternoon.

- I found out my aunt had a stroke this evening.

THE HAPPY:

1. Doing my business hw within 30 minutes of waking up (with only 1 cup of coffee pumpin in me, might I add!)

2. Cleaned my room, and decided to take some time to calm down after yesterday and work on my wall painting:

A cherry blossom tree- in the making!

3. BEAUTIFUL SUNNY 75 deg. weather/Found a shirt that I’ve been looking for/I fit in my old Hollister capris!

Bunched up middle because it can be worn as a SHORT dress!

4. I made a YUMMY new concoction in 15 min for dinner in between class that was SOOO GOOD:

Sweet n’ Spicy Sunshine Burger!

Recipe: 1 Morning Star Spicy Black Bean burger, sauteed red orange & yellow peppers, onion, 1 TB low sodium Terryaki sauce. MMMMMMMMM!

5. Improved in my art class using charcoal! I HATE CHARCOAL. Such an icky feeling on my hands, totally creeps me out. I like pencil/paint/pastels/etc. Here are a couple examples of my work:

An ELEPLUNK :) a still-life done in pencil.

Colored pencils & yucky charcoal.

QUESTION:

 I want to join a challenge to achieve my fitness goal, but I’m not sure what yet… hm…

I hate pressure.

I truly do. Pressure has got to be one of the WORST things in life.

BUT I will not stress, as much as I want to, and simply calm down. UGH. :)

Here are a few snapshots of what I’ve been eating yesteday/today:

My MOCK peach cobbler breakfast w. fresh strawberries on the side!

Fruity 'Nilla Yogurt Mess!

1 c. Fage 0%, 1/2 c. peaches & berries, 1/4 c. Fiber 1, vanilla extract and suncrystals :)

THE BEST SNACK EVER!

PPP- Protein Parm' Pizza!

PPP- 1/2 low carb tortilla folded over, 1 parm Boca burger heated & mixed with onion, 1 T tom sauce to hold it, 1 low fat motz stick on top, and a sprinkle of parm…. It was an interesting concoction, next time I’d add a little more tom sauce fo-shoooo!

I am SOOOOO ready for this semester to over and finished with! I really would love to start doing Yoga soon to become a calmer person.

Tomorrow is going to be a stressful day… I hope to start it with Pilates since I wont have time to do my routine at the gym due to stupid projects and papers due tomorrow. Tonight is going to be a late night :/

My next post will be a positive one, I promise!
