Today might have been the longest day this semester. We left our house at 7:30 am and didn’t get back until 9:00pm. The rest of the day was filled with projects and papers. Oh the joys of grad school. This is going to be a short post because I have to get back to work so I will post my December goals tomorrow so I can have time to actually think about them (plus I don’t want to rob you, dear reader, of a decent post… so you’re welcome?) Luckily, my stuff is due tomorrow and Friday so then I’ll be done… until next week. Luckily I only have one final but it is next Friday at 3:00 until 5:00. It kind of epitomizes how crappy that class it. Alright, let’s do this thang.
Breakfast: Let me ask you a question, when I say my name (Nathan,) does it sound like I am saying Hank? Well that is what the Starbucks employee thought I said this morning. Maybe I was grumbling because it was so early, but that’s what she wrote on my cup. Anyways, I was really in the mood for some hot chocolate this morning, so I went to my Starbucks App and tried to make it as healthy as it could be. Sadly, a grande non-fat, sugar free, no whip or mocha drizzle hot chocolate (can you even call it hot chocolate at that point?) was still 5 points. So I just went with a Venti Skinny Vanilla Latte which was only 3 points. I only drank half of it because I’m a slow hot drink drinker so I drank 1.5 points of it.
Lunch: After a long morning and getting a lot done, Megan and I met up for some Greek comfort food at Pitaria. I had the falafel pita and we split some pita fries (it helped ease the pain.) It was a 15 point lunch and it really held me over. We could totally do the Mediterranean diet 🙂
Dinner: We met up with some people at church in the plush Tallahassee Mall (it’s really a dump and kind of looks and feels like that weird abandoned mall that everyone takes shelter in in a zombie movie.) Luckily, they have a Subway so we split a footlong black forest ham sub. It must be “hire employees who don’t listen” day because we said lite mayo and he said “lite mayo, you got it” and then put regular mayo on it. We didn’t fight it because we were really hungry. I’ve been thinking about something like that for a while, it’s really disconcerting that you have to just trust the employees that they are making your food light or adding that fat free sour cream and you have to just trust it because you don’t really know. It’s kind of annoying, but that’s like I guess. Anyways I’m rambling. The sub was especially good because of the real mayo lol but awe well. It was 8 points. Life goes on.
Snack: After church, we ran to Publix to get some studying snacks to get us through the next at least 48 hours. We didn’t get anything extravagant in points (and I got some 25 calorie Swiss Miss so I can have my hot chocolate.) We also got these Chex Mix bars that are super chocolaty and were only 2 points which was nice.
Right now I am at 26.5 points but the night is young. I don’t plan on going overboard tonight with food, but some seriously healthy snacking are definitely in the cards. See ya tomorrow.
