An Imprint in My Chair

Happy Saturday my loves!  How’s everyone doing?

The rest of my Friday was busy busy!  I spent the majority of the day running around saying goodbye to my friend who leaves today, grocery shopping and having sushi!! 🙂

I didn’t snap any pictures of lunch (3pm…I guess it was lunch!)

I had a California Roll and a Spicy Salmon Roll with Miso Soup.  Both were very tasty and left me content.

I got some really great stuff grocery shopping yesterday!

Whole Wheat Naan

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Light Laughing Cow

Light Cookies and Cream Ice Cream (!!)

Oikos Blueberry Yogurt (from a coupon I had!)

PB & Co. Cinnamon Raisin PB (LOVE it)

Stonyfield Farms 4 Pack Vanilla Yogurt (Another coupon)

Amy’s Spinach Pizza Pocket (can’t wait to try it!!)

Some bars (Clif WCM, Clif Maple Nut, Luna Oatmeal Raisin, Luna WCM, Nature’s Place Organic Trail Mix Bar, Kashi Chocolate Almond Bar)

Brussels Sprouts!!! (Fresh ones, can’t wait to cook them up!)


Zucchini (look for a recipe later this week!)

A container of strawberries (these were HUGE.  Kinda freaked me out…)

Self Magazine!!

All in all, great shopping trip.  I can’t wait to try out a lot of these new products!!

I lounged around all night, not really eating a “real” dinner…I snacked on a Garden Burger with ketchup and the heel of my multigrain loaf with a little hummus on one half, and Cinnamon Raisin PB on the other.  I snacked on a bunch of little things all night too…a little ice cream, a little PB, a mini chocolate chip muffin my roomie made…emotional eating at it’s finest :-\

I went to bed nice and early (a rarity for a Friday night!) and slept like a rock.  Glorious.

This morning I woke up bright and early at 6:20.  Yes, on a Saturday. 😛  I layed in bed dozing on and off until 7, then got up and got ready for a jog/walk.  I went for a 3 mile jog/walk…it was nice, but a bit chilly and windy for my liking!

It was still nice to get out and clear my thoughts a bit though.  I did some ab work when I finished, and hopped in the shower.

After that, I whipped up some breakkie!

Oat bowl!

Oat bowl!

I had some oats in the fridge that I had soaked for two days to make overnight oats, but never got around to it.  Knowing I needed to use them up, I decided to just make a regular bowl of oats

1/3 cup oats, soaked for 2 days!

Sprinkle oat bran

Big scoop pumpkin

splashes of skim milk


1/2 tbsp flax

1/2 sliced banana

SF Maple Syrup

Big tbsp Cinnamon Raisin PB

It was…just okay.  I think soaking the oats for 2 days was overkill.  The had a gel-like texture to them that just wasn’t cool.  The whole bowl was just too watery for me, so it just wasn’t all that good.  The PB was obviously the highlight 😉

I am a hermit today.  And no, I’m not referring to the Newman’s Hermits that are all the rage in the blogworld these days!  I have to admit, I almost picked up a package yesterday, but I just couldn’t justify the price on that particular shopping excursion.

I have to stay inside from now until 5 pm (which is when I’m just giving up! haha) and write my final college paper…it’s a research paper and 15 pages long!  UGH.  One of my majors is English (along with Psychology) so I’m used to lengthy papers, but this one’s a doozy.  I’m usually not a procrastinator at all, but senioritis has kicked in in a major way, so here we are…Saturday with a 15 pager due Monday!  😛

The silver lining however, is that once I turn in this paper Monday…I’m done!! I have one final exam a week from this Wednesday, but I’m not worried about it at all, and it leaves me plenty of time to relax between now and then!

After Monday, I will (in my mind at least haha) be DONE with college!  Crazy thought.  Of course, I’ll be starting graduate school for my Master’s Degree in the fall, but still…undergrad is kaput!  😀

I’m going to miss college 😦

Have a great Saturday guys!!
