Oh hey strangers!

It’s been almost a week since my last blog post. My deepest apologies. I feel like I have truly been all go, go, go without a second to stop and catch my breath. I get up at  6 AM, work out, get ready, leave for work at 8 AM, come home around 4:30 PM, have dinner, and either go to class from 6:30 to 10:10 PM or do homework all night until I head to bed around 10:30 to 11 PM. It’s a vicious cycle.

You live and you learn though. In the future, I would probably not work a full time internship  alongside 2 classes, but hey, that’s okay for now. I’ll live.

I’m currently taking a recharge day on my Wednesday off, which as you can see, is much needed. Aside from doing more homework and quizzes, I finally got out and about.

This morning I met with my good friend Kendall at Tropical Smoothie in Gainesville, close to her house, for a belated birthday date. Her birthday was this past Monday, so I still needed to give her her gift.

This is Kendall! Isn’t she adorable?

Image

At Trop Smooth, Kendall got the Sunrise Sunset and I got the Acai Berry Boost. Both delicious.

When I got home later this morning, I worked through some more chapters of Econ and decided I needed a little Vitamin D if there was anyway I could continue working.

The weather has been so gorgeous today, so I took my studies to the outdoors!

Image

It felt so good to finally be in the sun again. Like my head apparel?

Image

I came back in for some food because, well it had been about 2 hours since I last ate, so naturally it was time. More frequent, but smaller meals = gold.

I whipped up some garlic basil tomato quinoa! Favorite food EVER.

Image

I paired it with my mom’s jalepeño pesto tilapia she had made earlier. The flavors didn’t really mesh, but they were both yummy.

Image

Does my tilapia not look a little like South America? How wordly!

And that leads me to now, taking a quick break from the books to do a little bloggy-blog.

Snapshot from the weekend and early week you ask? Ok!

Friday after work, I was exhausted. You weren’t expecting that one, were you?

I made a special request for Pomodoro’s pizza! It’s my favorite in all the land.

Image

My order: white pie w/ spinach and garlic. Yes, this is a treat.

Dessert consisted of apple slices and almond butter. Yumz.

Image

On Saturday, I started the morning with school work, after a work out. Surprise, surprise.

After depthy convincing, Kendall persuaded me to come over, get away from my studies, and enjoy the weather with her at her pool. Just a short ride on 66 W away.

Image

We pooled it up for a little bit, then headed to Chipotle and afterward, to a frozen yogurt chain I had never heard of. They’re popping up everywhere!

Image

My burrito bowl:

  • Brown rice
  • Black beans
  • Fajita veggies
  • Grilled chicken
  • Pico de gallo
  • Medium chile salsa
  • Lettuce

Image

My froyo:

  • Dark chocolate
  • Apple pie
  • Cafe latte
  • Tart (I know it doesn’t go, but it’s my favorite)

Sunday’s breakfast:

Image

  • Fage Total 0% fat Greek yogurt
  • PB
  • Almond butter
  • Cinnamon
  • Almonds

Sunday’s snack/lunch:

Image

Sunday’s dinner:

Image

  • Grilled chicken kabob
  • Grilled veggie medley
  • Steamed corn on the cob

For whatever reason, I was feeling a looking nauseous on Monday after my bike work out and just had some cereal for breakfast, some of my favorite cereal though.

Image

For lunch, I brought leftovers from dinner, which were almost just as good.

Image

When I returned home from work, I made up some quinoa and had a nice little dinner for one.

Image

Tuesday was yet another day in the life.

Breakfast was apples and PB/almond butter.

Image

Lunch at work = leftover quinoa. I usually microwave it for about 40 sec, but chilled also works.

Image

Oh yeah, and my lifesaver through out the work day is gum. I don’t know where I would be without it. Bored? Gum. Hungry? Gum. Tired? Gum. AND my music.

Image

Later Tuesday night while I was studying, I whipped up some of my delish specialty oatmeal.

Image

  • Oats
  • PB
  • Almond butter
  • Almonds/cashews/hazelnuts
  • Flaxmeal
  • Chia seeds
  • Dark chocolate chips
  • Almond milk
  • Cinnamon

Hopefully I can find my way back to sanity and a little more free time soon. We’ll see.

Summer session 1 is almost over anyways, at least for one of my classes. Then summer session 2 literally starts the very next day. Isn’t that just great?

Where’s my summer?!

Well, chow for now.
