I’m surfacing for just a moment to do a quick recap of the day, and then I’ll be back into the school/work/sleep abyss for the next 24 hours!

Breakfast was more cinnamon bun on flax-oat bran:


With 1/2 sliced apple and 1/3 cup yogurt for dipping, all dusted in cinnamon:


To hold me over until lunch, I had yogurt/ricotta with flax, pb2, banana, and strawberries (from Hunter’s lobby last night):


Lunch was more Thai coconut seafood curry, mixed with the veggies from Hunter’s lobby:


Veggies make everything prettier, don’t they?


I also had a spoonful of Belkis’ perfect perfect meat and rice:


And a salad composed of leftover salad bits from Mildred, Jessica, and yesterday’s mangu lunch. I topped the salad with some of the innards of the chicken, tomato, basil, and mozzarella sandwich piece Emily gave me in class last night:


I have an identical salad waiting for me in the fridge for tomorow πŸ™‚

Later in the afternoon, I had an orange:


And another pb-chocolate-apple parfait:


I also opened up my first tin (as opposed to roll) of Newman’s Own Organics peppermints. They’re so cute — just like little Altoids:


I had a bunch during the day. I did not count.

When I got home this evening, I prepped food for tomorrow and then headed out for some exercise. I jogged for 25 minutes until the pain won out, and then I switched to walking for another 20. Somewhere in there, I did 10 reps of the inchworm exercise that Olga told me about.

When I arrived back at the apt, I had a serving of the same chocolate-pb-flax custard that’s in the parfait above with a couple little slices of banana, a sprinkling of unsweetened coconut, and a tsp of pb2:


OK, off to report for bed duty so I can wake up tomorrow and do it all again. Ahh, I can’t wait until this semester is over and the papers are behind me!

A non-mentally-taxing question for tonight: How many separate things did you eat today? According to this entry, I ate 10. That might be a record low!

    Oh those cinnamon buns look good! Um, I really don’t know how many separate things I ate… well, yesterday. Lots of different greens, rice crackers, fruit… tough question.

    I’ve been blended yogurt with 1% cottage cheese (just as good as ricotta) lately, and it tastes similar to cheesecake – yum! I like your idea of adding ground flaxseed to the mix.

    Hey! Good luck getting everything done and don’t worry if your blogging takes a back seat for the next few days! This is when the going gets tough but I know you’ll rock! By the way, hop on over to my site today and add your favorite recipe! I bet you have some great ones:) Also, if you get invited to any NYC blogger events please let me know as i’m here full time now (pretty much) and am trying to get the word out about my site!

    I was wondering where you had disappeared too! Despite being in an abyss, you still manage to eat incredibly well.

    Lovely parfait!

    Your question IS taxing. Do you realise how often I eat? At least every 2-3 hours. So I can’t really answer this. My brain hurts thinking about it.

    I need to take a cue from you – and hit the books now!

    What a yummy day! Veggies definitely make things prettier!!

    I’ve tried those mints, and I really liked them. I offered some to a friend who, accustomed to bright white altoids, asked why they looked “dirty.” πŸ™‚

    Oh, and I’m loving your banner!
