Tuesdays can be good

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

 I am happy because my lab class for Chem got canceled! weeee! I got to go home early at 7pm rather than 10pm. This is why I never look forward to Tuesdays, because I have two labs for bio and chem (6 hours) plus 3 other classes dispersed throughout the day; therefore I come to school with such a sour face. As I said in my last post, I would try to smile and brush my hair for today.

A) I was in a good mood listening to Train- Hey, soul sister (I love that song! trying to learn the lyrics, no doubt I'll learn it by the end of this week) so I did smile a bit.

B) Unfortunately I did not brush my hair (oh well)

I did not pack any food with me for the rest of today like I usually do because I decided on a whim to crash at my moms house. I didn't fret because I believed that I could eat decently...on a whim. Thank God I packed oatmeal a couple days ago along with a banana! So I started the day off with a good breakfast.

Breakfast: Premixed oats (1/3 oats, flax, cinnmon, cocoa, stevia) mixed with carton egg whites and hemp milk with thin banana slices.

Attended all two of my classes. Instead of regular biology lab, we went to an aquarium to observe organisms! fun.

Jelly fishes are so interesting and cool. I hope I never get stung by one, ouch! I got stung by a ray and it was not pretty, especially at midnight. My friend and I decided to run like we were from Baywatch and then it just happened. It hurt and I cried.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous today, the aquarium was located over the cliffs of La Jolla Shore. I swear if I did not have class after I would have gone and lounged at the beach. I got so awe-struck as I drove down the cliffs over-looking the ocean, so beautiful and I don't seem to get tired of it.

This is an egg sac with a growing baby shark! so cool!

I got done after an hour and was ready for lunch. Since WF's was on the way back to school I decided to pay a visit. I wanted a salad, but I also wanted to add a lot meat and carbs! since they weigh food by the lbs at $7 per lb, I figured and knew I would have gone over and fish out more $$$. So on a whim I decided to just go to Chipotle which was across the street.

I ordered a bowl with rice, adobo steak, black beans, green bell peppers, red onions, salsa, hot sauce, corn, cheese, and lettuce. mmmmm! I was so glad I made the decision to go to Chipotle. No guilt whatsoever!

At Chipotle, they serve naturally raised meats that come from vegetarian-fed animals that are humanely raised and never given antibiotics or growth hormones. Boy am I glad I didn't miss Oprah when her show was on the topic of food and Food Inc, because I never knew Chipotle stands for locally grown and fresh ingredients.

Lets dig in shall we?

I decided to save the other half to have after class tonight. I honestly just wanted to finish it all, but I had to stop myself cause I ain't gonna buy more food, thus emptying the already empty wallet. So I would say Chipotle was a good investment.

As for snacks I had unsweetened hemp milk with ON turbo chocolate whey and a small yam on the side x's two. I found it easier to mircowave yams, which I will do from now on. Thus, making my yam shopping more enjoyable.

Now, I just need to rest because I have a sharp shooting pain down my neck. My face spasms everytime it happens, so good thing lab was canceled.

P.S- My mom and little sister has been drinking whole milk, after adding a few tid bits on why she should switch to reduced fat milk a week ago, she came back from shopping and bought reduced-fat milk! Wow, she actually listens to me?

How are you?

Hey Pretty lady! I went to school for engineering and had to take the same longgg painful labs- so I totally feel for you! Way to rock through the day with a smile on your face. And uh...I rarely brush my hair too ;) Chipotle is so yummy. Their guac is out of this world. Its one of my husbands favorite spots to eat and we don't have one in Charleston! Hope your Wednesday is great

I lovvvvvvve aquariums. They are magical places. And I love looking at the jellyfish, though I have also been stung and yeah it HURTS.

That's exciting that you got to go to an aquarium for biology lab! We never got to do anything cool like that (although we would have to travel at least 1.5 hours to get to one.. lol). How many more lab classes do you have to take in college? I was SO happy when those were done! It is so much work and they usually only give you one measly credit hour! :(

Your breakfast sounds delish! Lunch looked good too! I never knew that about Chipotle, so thanks for sharing! Now I know where I will be going if I have to get fast food!

Oh and I'm like you... Some days I just don't want to brush my hair :-D
