[I warn yee now, this will probably be a brief post! I am SO DARN BUSY!]
A day of total ups and downs!! Tuesday began on a big UP – I woke up feeling tremendously tired, so I went back to bed for 10mins (small lie-in – BIG UP!!). When I did get up, I had an apple, a square of chocolate and 2tsps of wheatgerm, before a nice 50minute DVD session. Good workout = UP.
Breakfast was a major major MAJOR UP!!! I made another Green Monster of course, with all the usual, and it came out so perfectly…smooth, thick, cold…literally, everything a girl could ask for 🙂 I topped it with granola, toasted coconut, grated cacao, chopped dates and jam:
Oh so good. Then I had another UP! I decided to get out of the house and go for a walk in the lovely sunny weather. My mum and I had been talking yesterday and we both agreed that I needed to get out. Seriously, being chained to the kitchen table/the laptop does not a happy person make 😦 So I packed up my revision books, and did some walk/reading – I actually headed to the ‘supermarket’ (though the nearest thing this small shack of a shop sells to food is some tinned Spam) cos I wanted to buy Heat magazine, though when I’ll get to read it is another matter all together….anyway, sunny weather + nice route = UP:
I did about 3miles, which took 1hr50mins – I had to keep stopping to highlight random bits in my textbook :p But, mission accomplished – I got out of the house, I enjoyed some natural light, and I bought Heat <- weekly gossip magazine, blates most important bit. It was strange feeling real light on my shoulders though – the past two weeks or so, I’ve been such a hermit, I’d forgotten the sun even existed!! I felt like a bunny emerging from a hibernation 😛
When I got back, I had another UP moment. You know how people like to indulge in a bit of retail therapy to relax? Well, I did my own version Sunday night, and was on the Goodness Direct website, ordering a few funky food items for myself (my treat :p) – they arrived today! I’ll show them as I eat them, instead of all today (mainly cos the pics came out blurry….). Needless to say, I incorporated some new stuff into lunch.
Ah, lunch – another UP! I started by blending cottage cheese, Greek yogurt and Noosh in my mini blender, so it resembled cream almost…then I spread it on some o’ this Flaxseed German ryebread type stuff. I love that bread 😀
I also had a pear, some mushrooms, carrots (with lentil pate and apple sauce for dipping), a cookie blob thing I made the other day, and 2 squares of some RAW chocolate, which came in my Goodness Direct package 😀 Oh, and a random sample of new granola!!
I had such brilliant experiences with the last batch of Lizzi’s granola, I couldn’t wait to try a different flavah 😀 It was YUM.
A meal of delish:
Sooooo good – so many nice flavours 🙂 The Raw chocolate is pretty impressive too – it does have a different texture to normal chocolate (kinda more melty and smooth?) but is just as delicious. LOVED. IT.
During lunch, I received an email which sent my mood UP – But, the contents are a secret for now – you’ll see 😛
Then, in the afternoon I had a hot chocolate:
(Cue dumb face pulling – it has to be done!)
After that, the day went DOWN….
I was doing revision on my brain and behaviour module, and I totally had another freak out when I looked at the practice exam questions:( Lots of crying and ohmydaysIcan’tbreathe going on….not nice! (I even threw my favourite spoon on the floor and broke it!!) I feel like I’m trying SO hard, but nothing is going in. I had two textbooks, Wikipedia, my lecture notes…and it was like a big jumble in my head. I even emailed my lecturer in a bit of a panic, saying something along the lines of ‘OH MY GOSH HELP ME!!’. In the end, I decided it was a good time to go and sort the horses out. Poor old Chika, she’s so neglected at the moment – she calls to me every time I see her now, cos she’s so bored and wants attention!! I feel terrible 😦 I gave her a big hug…and then had ANOTHER major ‘argh’ attack. Cue even more crying and not-being-able-to-breathe. She doesn’t care though, she’s seen me have these attacks SO many times 😛
Anyway, I did the horses, came in, and got stuck in again. I did about a half hour, felt like my head was going to explode, so I laced up my trainers and ran 2miles (17mins).
I literally savoured every moment of it – loud music, freedom, no revision….it was a slow run (8.40ish), but the most subjectively fast one ever! I was actually running with my eyes closed at one point, literally soaking up every single second. I did NOT want it to end!
Alas it did 😦
I came back, got stuck into work again, and had a snack – another piece of the flax bread, spread with papaya yogurt:
Weird but delish 😀 UP!
Dinner was exactly the same as yesterday…I’ve had such a rough day, I wanted COMFORT!! = UP!
Plus, my brain has lost the capacity to be imaginative 😛
For dessert, I’ll have Greek yogurt, and I’ll probably break open another funky chocolate bar I received today (I have about 6 :p)
SO that was the day!!
How did everyone’s exams go!? I know quite a few people had them today?
And finally – does anyone have any jokes!!?? I need cheering up!! And for the record, I laugh equally hard at good jokes AND bad jokes, so don’t be shy 😛 And if y’all succeed in making me laugh, I promise nothing but happy, non-moany, non-revision related posts from this moment forth 😀
Ps: my Life List should appear tomorrow 😛 I hope you’ve all got your own prepped and ready to share 😀
Pps: ARGH! Big black spider just ran across my floor!! WHERE IS MY MUM WHEN i NEED HER!?
Ppps: Phew, it’s trapped under a glass 🙂
