Do you know what's totally cool to me? Tomorrow's Friday!!!! Woooooooo!!!!
Today was a busy day. Between the gym, work, school and socializing, I haven't spent a moment at home! That's ok. It was a fun one. I'll give you a quick run down of the pre-school food and then get to tonight's feature presentation (that would be book club... I know... Am I exciting or what?!)!
As you know, today I had a soy latte that was to DIE for. The first of many, most certainly. Along with the Starbucks, I had a Kashi bar (unpictured) and a twizzler. I haven't had twizzlers in YEARsssss. Now, I remember why. They aren't good.
Pork-Yam bowl and topped it with a dollop of Apricot Preserves.
My afternoon snack was organic vanilla yogurt with fresh raspberries. I was too lazy to put the berries and yogurt in separate containers, so it just looks like yogurt with globs. Those were mighty tasty globs, though! I also had an apple.
School was fun today. We did circuit again, and we're all finally getting the hang of it. I was able to figure out how to up the resistance on my bike so I'm actually getting my heartrate up a little. It was the first time I actually felt like I was getting a workout in class. Oh! I almost forgot! One of my classmates, Sheree, is also a nutrition major and a fellow food blogger! Funny story: As we were discussing her story of going from vegetarian to vegan, I was pulling out my bag so I could write down her blog and she says, "Ya, I went from vegetarian to vegan. I don't even buy leather or anything like that." We both look down and there I am, holding my leather school bag and my leather wallet. It was a funny moment and we both had a good laugh over it. :)
After school, I had a quick snack to hold me until book club. (I heart raspberries.)
This month, book club met at Casa De Pico, which happened to be less than a mile from my house! Dee kicked off the night with a Tequila shot.
This month's book pick was Leah's. She chose The General's Daughter by Nelson DeMille. It was a tough book for me. I wasn't wild about his writing style and I tend to avoid Army-type books. That said, Leah seemed to really like it. :)
Regardless, I really enjoyed discussing the book anyway. It's an interesting and, at times, emotionally-jarring read and we had a really good discussion about motives, human (sexual) nature and Army life in general. We have a group of fun, intelligent women so its always time well spent. Thanks girlies!!!
For dinner, I ordered the Black Bean Burritto, which the menu said was 661 calories. I ate about 2/3 of the burrito, a good portion of the rice and a few tortilla chips with salsa. A carby night, for sure.
When I arrived home, I was glad to see Hubby did some bonding of his own... boy-style. He and the roommie played video games the entire evening (still playing as I type this). So, all is right in the world of Mrs. Myers. :) And on that note, it's time for this little woman to shower and hit the hay.
