So, surely by now you MUST have seen Jenn’s What I ate Wednesday link party, right?
Every week I see it and every week I wish I would get on my game and join the link party, but I just crap out or something (probably something to do with Wednesdays being my busiest day of the week & I just forget to photograph my food)
Someway, somehow I got my act together today! So check out my recent eats:
Before breakfast I did the Cardio X P90X video. Immediately thereafter, I had a big protein-packed smoothie (banana, strawberries, pineapple, pineapple juice, & hemp protein powder)
Busy morning at school, then I hit up the $3 lunch at a place called Core. It’s really cool – there are about a million items to choose from (I swear – more than at Jason’s Deli!)
I cant even remember all the items I selected: sundried tomato, red bell pepper, green onions, red onions, a corn salsa, chickpeas, edamame, cashews, avocado, feta cheese, apple slices…and more???
Then you pick a “green”: I picked a mix of spinach and romaine lettuce. Then they toss it all together with a dressing of your choice (I always go dry because there are plenty of “juices” from all my salsa and other toppings!)
Afternoon snack: carrot sticks and almond butter
at my desk…
and – to be honest – I haven’t had dinner yet, but I’ll show you my dinner from last night:
A pork chop, simple salad, corn, and one of my leftover homemade rolls from the other day. Tonight I have planned something chicken – maybe a stir-fry? Not sure yet.
And I have several hours of work ahead of me. That’s okay though because I’ve kind of been slacking…..Monday night I took completely “off” to just do nothing, and last night I met up with friends after dinner – one of them is going though a rough time and I wanted to lend my support. As a result, I didn’t do any work. So tonight I need to get some stuff done!
One of the amazing/horrible/facts of life of a graduate student is that from 9-5 your work-work-working…..on school. It’s all basically one of the following: homework/reading for classes you’re taking, working for classes you’re teaching, sitting in meetings/classes/etc, and working on projects with immediate deadlines.
So nights and weekends are basically the only time when you can work on YOUR OWN stuff (reading/research). So, yeah – working nights & weekends is pretty much always a given. What can ya do? C’est la vie.
Ever seen this episode of “The Simpsons”? Yup…..it’s funny ‘cuz it’s true
