Ahhhhhhhhh, these days are flying by WAY too fast. I literally don’t have a second to do anything BUT work at work now that I’ve become a real-live employee. And then to class right from there! I thought I had no down time before, but now I REALLY have no downtime. So with that in mind, yesterday is going to have to get the highlights treatment.
Lunch was massaged kale + arugula + spaghetti salad:
And Jessica shared her bag of maduros chips with me:
Do you know how rare it is to find these sweet plantain chips?! Every time I see plantain chips in the store, I get excited … until I see the big “not sweet” emblazoned across the bag. Yayyyy, maduros! These were delicious.
Later in the afternoon, I had my yogurt + ricotta + fruit + hemp:
And as I was on my way out of the office, I spied something new on the evil conference room table:
Mmmmhmmmmm, you KNOW I grabbed a handful (or three):
I stopped on the way to class for the usual samples: three teeny cubes of French comte cheese and some hunks of Tate’s Bakeshop chocolate chip cookies. Dinner in class was a random crazy salad with arugula, one of Jessica’s omelets from my work breakfast on Friday, steamed kale stems and broccoli, strawberries and blackberries (from Olga), and TJ’s smoky peach salsa from Elisabeth.
Emily also handed over the last 1/4 cup or so of her chicken-veggie soup, and that went right down the hatch:
Plus cherries and sliced cucumber for snack:
And cereal medley + yogurt + fruit salad for dessert (also what I had for breakfast yesterday, if you were curious!):
Breakfast this morning was overnight cereal with about 1 cup of yogurt and 1/2 cup strawberry medley/golean crunch. The big pile o’ fruit (berries from Olga, banana from Jessica, apples/pears/peaches from me) landed on top of the marinated cereal this morning. Topped with hemp, coconut, nutmeg, and cardamom:
I’m 98% sure I’m heading to try another hot yoga class after work this evening, so it will be another late night. Ack, my 8-hours-of-sleep requirement just keeps getting pushed to the backburner. I’m not entirely sure it’s a realistic expectation while I’m in grad school. Hmph. My body is angry at me for denying it adequate rest! Subway naps can only do so much to alleviate the sleep debt. But I don’t see a solution since I get home from class at 10:30 and I have to get up at 6 just to get to work on time! Rararararar, quite the debacle. Can you extend the day just two more hours for me? Please?
