Everything is coming up Roses..

30 04 2009


Well not everything.. but classes are over for the semester! I only have 2 finals, I loved spinning today and I am in a rosey kinda mood!

I went to the gym after my last class! I was too early for the next spinning class there so I did the elliptical and did my own spinning class! I re-familiarized myself with how to work the bike and got a fantastic workout in. I am really excited to do several classes tomorrow

Neghborhood walk with Jack

Two finals! I started studying today.

Car Inspection stuff ( Where I used to live you never had to get an annual inspection so I’m still not used to the whole thing. Luckily, Jeff knew exactly what I needed to do so we will be taking care of that tomorrow).


I woke up 30 minutes earlier than yesterday! I had this funny dream just as I woke up. I was hiking by myself in this crazy gorgeous mountain/rainforest, it was somewhere honeymoon related. I was trying to meet up with Jeff on the hike and I heard a cell phone ringing  on this slinky bridge ( above a deep raveen). I ran across the bridge and picked up the phone. As soon as I grabbed it to say hello, I woke up realizing it was my alarm clock. How funny! 

Jeff cut me fresh roses from our rose bush in the backyard- SUPER FIANCE scores again.

I took Jack for a walk and it was so GORGEOUS outside! 80 and very breezy so it seemed just a tad cooler. Ah. When I cam home from the walk- I found this in the mail!1 BLOG 014

Free barney butter sample! I keep seeing bloggers ranting and raving about this but they spend about $8 a jar on it- so I have been dying to know what the fuss is. Thanks Heather of Hangrypants for emailing me the link so I wouldn’t miss out on the samples!

Early Breakfast:
Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Fruit and PB2

It looks small but this is actually a whole serving, 1/2 cup dry oats made with about 3/4 cup water.

Late Morning I made a quick lunch to take with me on the way to class- I had already packed my camera so no photo- but it was a smoothie! Jay Robb is back! It had 1/2 scoop jay robb, water, blueberries, cherries and some yogurt.

Lab :
Random Cookie ( one of the professor’s made these, they were AWESOME! I must get the recipe from Dr. Fisher ( Sarah- she made them right?) . They were almond meringues I assume, basic meringues made with almond flour. They are wheat/gluten free and delicious. Chewy and soft but incredibly light.  Oh and I had a Diet Soda for the caffeine ( I would have gone to the cafe for tea or coffee but it was too far and class was starting)…

and Fudge! I had 2 of the small-ish pieces

I could taste the corn syrup, it was very sweet! I prefer richer fudge as opposed to a sweeter fudge. The higher fat is usually more satiating. This was delicious though!

Afternoon/Post-Workout Snack

A whole wheat wrap with some reduced fat cheeses and hot sauce..

Still have over half of that diet coke left- I can’t drink it like I used to in college!

I think I felt tired because I have been getting up earlier thus sleeping less. So instead of finishing off this D.C when I got home, I switched to the healthier, anti-oxidant rich Green Tea and put that guy in the fridge

I had made extra “chicken parm” the other day,and intended to use the leftovers for a quick Chicken Marsala. However, the mushrooms we had were no good, boo. So I put the chicken in the skillet with some lemon juice and capers and voila, chicken picatta.

On the side we had Kashi Instant Pilaf Fiery Fiesta Mix with black beans and fire roasted corn. A side salad too.

I rented Bride Wars today…. I wanted to wait to have a “girls night” to watch it together but I just couldn’t! I will see it again if anyone wants to watch it with me!

I don’t think Dr. F made them but she does know the recipe because she recited it out loud after i commented how good they were, “All you do is….” yada yada

Thanks for your kind words! It’s actually creamy goat cheese. TJ’s has all kinds of flavors like herb, honey, cranberry and they are all delicious on salads. When are you guys going to start painting? I have yet to try the infamous barney butter too because it seems so popular, but I usually get the pb from TJ’s. I’ll have to try it. Have fun watching Bride Wars! Chris won’t watch those kind of girly movies with me haha

I missed the free BB sample. I SO wanted to try it. I do not pay $8 for something that I might not like. Oh well–’tis what Maranatha’s for.

I love PB2 though!
