First Post

From the new laptop! Finally! I was having problems installing my image editing software on here, but I’ve got it figured out now, so I can blog from where ever my heart desires. Freedom!

So my Sunday started out way later than planned. I guess all those early mornings throughout the week finally caught up, and I slept in until 11:30 am. Oops!

It was rather warm out again today, so I went with a cool smoothie.

Into the cup went:

  • 1 rather large, ripe banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • milk to fill the glass

Alongside, I had one of those addictive Nicer Krispie Treats. No reason you can’t have one for breakfast, right?

Quite enjoyable, if I do say so myself.

After I enjoyed my almost lunch out on the deck in the sun, I went out to do a little clothes shopping again. I actually ended up buying a couple of pairs of jeans, so I could bring them home and get my mom’s opinion as well. Both received a thumbs up, so now I don’t have to go to school naked! Yay! I was also eyeing up a few pairs of shoes, but I really can’t do the whole overhaul of my closet that I would like until I get a little income coming in. Guess that means I should be a little more proactive in my job search, eh?

I threw together a little snack to tide me over til dinner when I got back.

I dished up a little bowl of yogurt topped with some Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Granola and diced dried peaches.

Some juicy red grapes.

And a glass of pomegranate cranberry juice, since I’d missed my morning juice.

I then attempted to get some reading done for my Psychology class, but that turned into an extended nap on the couch. I just couldn’t keep my eyes open! Fortunately I woke up enough to put together dinner.

My parents had gone out, so my sister and I made what we felt like. I went with a salmon burger, with Laughing Cow and ED&BV Lemon Cashew Basil Pesto.

Mom had made some of my favourite dill dip, so I cut up some carrot & cucumber to deliver that deliciousness to my mouth.

And I threw together a little side salad of romaine, zucchini, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, and Brianna’s Honey Mustard Dressing.

Looks so fresh and tasty.

After dinner, I found myself at the gym for a little while, then came home to get some things prepped for my early morning tomorrow. My throat has started to bother me a little this evening as well, so I’m off to have some tea then get some rest. I can’t get sick when we’re only on week 2 of school! Night 🙂

    I love salmon burgers! So simple, but delicious!

    I hope you wake up without a sore throat…I just hate that feeling where I feel like i might be getting sick!

    Drink plenty of hot beverages, and keep eating those fruits and veggies! I’m glad you are enjoying your new laptop. I love being able to blog anywhere, but I usually only blog at home. If I was still in school, however, it WOULD be different!

    The salmon burger looks awesome. I had one last night too, but I crumbled it up and made it into a fish taco!

    I hate it when I’m trying to get school stuff done, but my eyes get droopy…except sometimes those naps are the most needed/refreshing!

    Hope your throat is better this morning!
