Today was super productive studying/school wise which is good since yesterday I didn’t have a second to crack a book at all.
Breakfast: Gingerbread Coffee and Special K Chocolatey Strawberry cereal with Almond Milk
I put in a good hour or so studying and then hit the road for my quick 3 miles easy. Right at the two mile mark I got stopped by the train (womp, womp) which was so annoying since I was almost done. However I have gotten stuck at this spot on mile 18 of a 20 mile run and that was much more frustrating.
When I got home and showered, I remembered I had to return all of the equipment to Comcast or else I was going to have to reschedule the disconnect, which meant calling them and quite frankly, I would rather chew off my own fingers individually than call that company!! So I loaded Scarlett in the car (she loves car rides) and set off across the bridge. I was in and out in 5 minutes which I was not expecting, pleasant surprises.
Lunch: Lean Cuisine Margarita Pizza (sometime you just have to microwave food)
Post lunch I hunkered down, got some more good studying done. Read some more of my book (Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult, its okay but I’m not thrilled about it). Read a few Runners World articles (the one about Kara Goucher and Shalane Flanagan was awesome). Had a few snacks before heading to the clinic.
Snacks: Honey Crisp Apple with Nutella Greek Yogurt Dip, Voskos Peach Greek Yogurt
I rode my bike over to school (weird that I can’t just walk now) but the ride was a leisurely 10 minutes and it was a gorgeous evening. A patient brought White Chocolate Macademia Nut Cookies just to say thanks which was so sweet! I forgot to snap a picture but it was incredible!!
That was only the beginning of the amazing night I had in the clinic. A guy I have been working with walked safely in his prosthetic limb all over the clinic. At one point he yelled out, “Look at me everybody, I’m walking!!” It literally brought tears to my eyes. Overall it was just another successful night in the clinic, one that reminded me why I am spending all of this time studying and working so hard.
By the time I got home from clinic I was ravenous as I always am since I am not usually home until about 8 or 9 o’clock. I munched on some watermelon while I prepared dinner and dessert!
Dinner: Potato and Onion Pierogies and Turkey Kielbasa (easy one pan meal)
It doesn’t look that great but this is one of our favorites…pierogies are amazing!!
Dessert: Chocolate, Peanut Butter No Bake Bars from New Nostalgia (via pinterest)
DELICOUS but DECADENT!
These are a major sweet tooth fixer but I had to have some almond milk to follow the sweetness!! So amazing though!
