Greek GIVEAWAY: Enter HERE!
Here I am at 10:00pm finally ready to write a post about today’s eats. I insert the sacred memory card [I only have one!] into my computer only to find dissatisfying images – scratch that! I’m just not one that can post any old photo. If only I could go back in time because I’m pretty sure all my munchies are digested and working their way out by now ; )
Anyway…I decided to jumpstart my Saturday by a going to the gym for a morning workout. It had been a little while since I’d gone to a spin class, so that’s where I was headed. I rocked the spandex shorts today, bee-tee-dub. It was an awesome, hilly [1 hour] ride. I finished my ‘routine’ with 15 minutes toning of the abdominals & arms…feeling strong and pain-free!
Before I left for The Resort, I ate some CHOs [a.k.a. carbohydrates] and protein. My childhood swim coach told me that PB + milk is a complete protein. Unfortunately, I’m still not sure what that means and if in fact it’s a true statement [I better learn this as I’m majoring in Nutrition], but I did find this — take it or leave it:
“Peanut butter is not protein-dense… To boost the protein value of peanut butter, simply accompany it with a tall glass of milk… Milk simultaneously enhances the value of the protein in the peanut butter sandwich. That is, peanuts are low in some of the essential amino acids muscles need for growth and repair. The amino acids in milk (as well as those in the sandwich bread) nicely complement the limiting amino acids in peanuts.” [source].
Here you are… p.nut buttah & banana photo #266.
Ok, so the rest of my day consisted of a trip to Target and whipping out an entire paper that isn’t due for another month. I’m definitely turning this puppy in Monday though and freeing one item from my hands. Writing papers >>> studying for science exams. If you couldn’t guess already, I love writing. I dream of seeing my name on the front cover of a book one day – reach for the stars!
In the midst of my paper writing, I gave my grandma a jingle to ask her a couple more questions [the paper’s about family migration]. We got to talking about stress, and how that seems to be the theme of my life currently. I had to Twitter her hilarious advice:
No more rambling – promise. Look what I’ve got to smile about tomorrow:
It’s going to be a sunny spectacular SUNday!
Peace + Love,
