No Rest for The WearyPosted: August 7, 2011
Just in case you were wondering…I’m still alive! It’s been a while since my last post hasn’t it?
I spent the majority of the past couple days studying for finals and I’m ecstatic to say I’m officially DONE. Now I get a 2 week break before the fall semester starts up.
I took my last final yesterday afternoon and have been on the go since. After my final I headed home for lunch and a quick sesh with Jillian. I had just enough time to get in a workout before going to the airport to drop someone off.
This is a perfect workout when you’re short on time. It’s quick and you can make it as hard or as easy as you want.Less than 30 mins later I was drenched in sweat. I’m not sure if my house was too warm or if her workout was just that tough. Probably a combination of the both.
So after Jillian kicked my butt, I headed to the airport. Speaking of airports…Is anyone else fascinated by how airplanes work? As I was leaving the airport to head home an airplane flew right over me on the highway and landed on the runway to my right. I don’t know what it is, but I have this weird interest in watching them take off and land.
Anyways moving on…
I quickly showered after I got home so I could head out to meet up with some good friends of mine whom I’ve known since middle school! I’m always guaranteed a fun time when I see them :) We had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants and then headed to…karaoke!
Needless to say, last night was a fun night! A great end to a full week of studying.
This morning started out the same as every other morning this past week. A big bowl filled with one Barbara’s shredded wheat, natures path heritage flakes, and fresh raspberries, blueberries, and diced white nectarine.
I kinda wish it was this:
But I wanted something quick and easy so cereal it was. Still delicious though!
I was a little more ambitious when it came to lunch. I actually went foraging for basil outside and broke out the food processor
to make this basil pesto.
I spread it on one half of my Ezekiel sprouted english muffin and topped the other half with an egg white flower sprinkled with pepper.
It may have been a bit messy, but that pesto made the sandwich. I love how creamy it was since it was made with navy beans in place of olive oil. Plus I’m a sucker for anything with basil in it.
And now you’re alllll caught up with me and my eats whether you wanted to be or not ;)
So what am I going to be doing with my two free weeks? Well this week I’m just going to take it easy and do whatever I please and then next week I’ll be heading to a place more tropical. I need to get away from this heat!
I’ve got something fun in store for tomorrow thanks to my friend Christi (hiii!), but until then I have a date with a vacuum and some cleaning staples because I’ve got some serious cleaning to do. I won’t rest easy until I get it all done!
Enjoy the remainder of your Sundays! :)
Any karaoke fans out there? – I’m as tone deaf as can be, but it definitely doesn’t stop me from belting out some old school songs. Thats part of the fun I guess ;)
Do you like homemade pesto? – This was actually my first time making pesto at home and I loved it!
