Belated WIAW

Oh man I have completely deserted my beloved blog!  This week was (and still is) crazy stressful, so until the tests are over tomorrow, I’ll have to keep it short and simple.  I’ve just been studying (aka sitting on facebook and chatting with friends at Starbucks) and eating (to procrastinate even more) and going out (no explanation needed).  Three tests have bogged me down this week and I’m also in the process of applying for STUDY ABROAD and my application for the university is due in a WEEK. I didn’t even realize it was Thursday [which could be a good thing I suppose] but WIAW flew right past me.  So lessss gooo

[warning: please excuse all of the horrible cell phone pics. desperate times call for desperate measures.]

pumpkin butter & almond butter sandwich

more spinach/sweet potato/pumpkin/greek yogurt pancakes. SO filling and deliciouss..AND nutritious

starbucks double shot with soy, TRY it.

so many bowls of randomness with tons of veggies, a protein source and COTTAGE cheese

chicken, green beans, water chestnuts, peppers, onions, spinach sauteed in soy sauce and hoisin sauce. legit asian food at home? yes please

wrap with almond & pumpkin butter & honey; strawberries; roasted veggies

tuna, cottage cheese, egg, spinach, avocado bowl

yogurt mess


i cannot tell you how much cereal I've been eating. so quick and always a craving

Lessons I’ve learned:

  • always bring extra food to campus ; better to bring home extra than not have enough!
  • you guys were right-eating carbs before bed has been the best decision I’ve made since school started.  After having sleeping problems for months, I’m now sleeping like a baby because my stomach isn’t growling every 4 seconds
  • college can be fun if food and exercise isn’t the main focus <– finally understand this!

Okay I’m back to studying.  Until tomorrow friends when I can whip out a real post!


What’s your favorite food to pack for a day when you’re out and about?  my favorite foods are alllll refrigerated, so I usually bring just a sandwich, fruit, and some veggies.  I’m severely lacking in protein during the day!

    My favorite foods are cereal (dry), almonds, apples/bananas/oranges, and easy to eat raw veggies

  3. I always bring apples to work and I eat an apple (at least one!) every single afternoon. Seriously it’s like the best part of my afternoon, I think. Luna bars are really good too.
