Woah it’s 12/12/12 today! That’s pretty cool.
It’s also Wednesday, which means it’s time for the weekly roundup of meals and snacks for Jenn’s What I Ate Wednesday link-up. If you are new to the blog, you can check out our About page for more details about who we are and how crazy we are. (Kidding, sort of).
These are Tuesday’s eats and I have to admit, having to take photos kept my from indulging in unhealthy study snacks……. interesting how that works. I’m glad I ate relatively well because eating bad food drags me down, which in turn makes me not want to study even more. Did that make sense?
Anyways, let’s get to it!
8 AM – I started the morning with a small breakfast of oat bran with half a banana, cinnamon, and stevia.
9-11 – Early morning dance practice! We cleaned the new routine that we learned last week and our coach said we will probably perform it at the Dec. 20th game. I really hope we do because my mom is going to be in LA for that game!
12 – Lunch came courtesy of the sorority house. I took to-go plates of salad with salsa and avocado chunks, some fajita peppers and mushrooms, and strawberries.
1:30 PM – Lunch did not hold me over too well, plus I wanted a break from studying and I felt snacky. Two slices of wheat toast with sugarfree strawberry jam and some yogurt did the trick.
2 – I walked over to Starbucks for some coffee and because I had a special meet-up!
3-4 – Ellen, a blog reader, was in town for USC spring admit orientation. She will be officially attending SC in a few weeks and it was SO fun to chat about blogs, dancing/singing, majors/minors, our hometowns, exercise habits, etc. So nice meeting you, Ellen!!!
5:30 – Dinner came early because I’m a grandma. In an effort to clear out my fridge, I simmered down a ton of spinach and paired it with three dippy eggs. And an apple for a sweet ending.
7:30 – This is when the snackage cravings really hit! I’m glad I kept it pretty controlled though, going to back to one of my favorite snacks. A 100-cal bag of kettle corn with some cinnamon and SF syrup kept me busy while I finished up some accounting practice problems.
8-9 – Gym time! I walked to the gym, ran 2.5 miles, did some corework and pushups, ran 1.5 more miles, and then walked back to my apartment.
9:30 – My post-workout snack was 3 egg whites (salted and so tasty) and some sugar cookie sleigh ride tea. I’ll be so sad when this seasonal tea is off the shelves :(
All in all, a good day of workouts, studying, and meals.
Hopefully my accounting final goes well today.
