Happy Monday! My morning today started off differently than usual…No morning workout for me! I had soccer practice/tryouts this afternoon, and given I’m not in my tip-top shape, I shouldn’t push it. I woke up an hour before my alarm. It’s interesting, it is so much easier to go to bed later and get up later, while sleeping the same amount. For example, I went to bed at about 1, and set my alarm for 9. But I woke up before 8. Hey, I’m not complaining!
Expiration date on my birthday! Most of the yogurts in my fridge have that date too. 🙂
This is probably my favorite, but it hasn’t been stocked at the last few stores that I went too. I also like the Icelandic yogurt. Yesterday, I also bought some goat milk yogurt, so that should be interesting to try.
I was planning on eating my yogurt plain, but I ended up topping it with banana and sunflower butter.
See that on the side? That green juice? I don’t know why I was under the impression that I would like it. It tastes very…green. I got like 3 different types (although one is way fruitier, thank goodness). Yeah. I poured myself like half a cup an had to chug it, shivering the whole time. And that one was supposed to be “sweet.” I should have gotten a different type that had ginger and like 20 grams more sugar. I was debating between the two. *Shudder* I don’t think I will be able to finish it. Are you guys green juice fans? Any tips?
Between classes, I ventured down into a basement of one of the buildings to try a new to me cafe. I’ve always seen signs but never checked it out. I will definitely go back. There were lots of good sounding sandwiches, although I was lazy and just picked up a prepackaged one.
I haven’t had egg salad in forever! And it was good. 🙂 I avoided about half the bread. More on that in a minute…
They also had the most amazing selection of baked goods. But not just baked goods, my favorite type of baked goods: quick breads/cakes. Marble cake. Pumpkin Bread. Banana bread. Everything! I ended up settling on an oat carrot-some type of veggie-bread. It was delicious, and not too sweet!
A while ago I talked about how I think I might have some type of problem with gluten. Or blood sugar. Which in theory is why I’m attempting to avoid grains. I’m not sure if I’ve been avoiding them better lately, or if I just haven’t had to sit through class after eating them, so I kind of just figured it would be fine. Well…About an hour after lunch, I was sitting in class and all of a sudden I could not keep my eyes open! I wasn’t tired at all that day until that moment. And my mind kept blending the chemistry in lecture with various parts of my life and it was very confusing, and I was struggling so hard to keep my eyes open. This went on for about half an hour, and then it passed. This is the same experience I’ve had in the past; all of the sudden I CANNOT keep my eyes open, but eventually it passes and is ok near the end of class. This is definitely not right. I should probably go get that checked out so I know what the actual cause is, not just my theories. And while I’m at it, and can get my “nut allergies” checked out as well…I feel like I have been a hot mess lately with food, because these issues have appeared out of nowhere in the past year.
After classes were done for the day, I snacked on a mango and a raw chocolate quinoa bar, which was surprisingly delicious. I will definitely be getting that again. Here’s a last-minute decision picture. Sorry!
After sitting around my dorm and chatting a bit, I headed off to practice with the club soccer team. All of the girls were so nice and welcoming! It was pretty tiring, but no undoable. I doubt I’ll be asked back though, because they play at a much higher level than me, which I knew going in (especially since I haven’t played in 4 years…whoops).
It was a lot of fun though. Afterwards I realized I have a nice little blister going on my foot. I guess you don’t notice those things when you’re going hard!
Not the best meal but it got the job done. For a little treat I mixed up some soft serve with milk for a makeshift milkshake, which was refreshing. Some cocoa puffs may also have been involved. 🙂
I’m considering tagging along with the running club, which is basically a ton of runners meeting up and running different trails. Once again, given my current shape, I’m probably way out of my league, but I guess I seem to be getting in over my head a lot lately. We shall see.
Overall, not a bad day. Super windy though. I absolutely hate the wind, it is so annoying! Spin classes start tomorrow!
So, tell me: Green juice. Love it or hate it?
