It really helped that it was also my last day of classes. I am free for the next three plus months! My professor brought a party to celebrate the end of the semester:
…and mini cupcakes. Cute. Our presentation was okay, I guess; who cares now, it’s over!!
Backtracking to the morning…
Hooray for sample boxes! Especially good because I don’t want an entire package of this — I don’t like honey, I don’t particularly like almonds, and the cereal was wholly too sweet.
On the subway going to the gym, I came to a horrifying realization.
You see the problem, I am sure: I forgot to put on makeup. I’m not one to sport a face full of products, but I never, never, ever go out without mascara. For obvious reasons. I could have — should have — taken a lesson from this hottie, but… this had to be remedied. Since the girl opening the gym was late (of course), I ran across the street to Duane Reade and bought this (and a new pill cutter):
That’s (slightly) better.
I do not know what was wrong with my memory this morning. I wanted to take a pedometer with me, because I really feel like treadmill mileage isn’t actual mileage… but, of course, I forgot. Not that it mattered, since I only had time for five minutes on the treadmill anyway! But for some inexplicable reason, my butt is incredibly sore; no clue why, but I am loving it.
Ever since I had my ROYGBIV salad, I’ve had this inexplicable craving for roasted cauliflower. Weird thing to crave. But, hey, cravings must be satisfied…
Romaine, roasted cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and tofu. The tofu is more burned than anything else… I had to chuck the worst of it, but it’s good I like things well-done. Oh, and if you’ve never tried cauliflower roasted with seasoned salt, do it. Now.
A yogurt smoothie (strawberry, this time):
I wanted it to be thick enough to eat with a spoon, so I added some xanthan gum. It didn’t really make it thick; it did, however, make it goopy. As in, if I shook the bowl, it wiggled like, well, a bowl of Jello. Not a major fan… I think I’ll stick to the original version from now on!
Added zygote carrots to the sauteed eggplant, mushrooms, and All Whites; and some chili powder to the couscous. I realized that the All Whites expire today, and I still have one cup left. I’m going to be living on the edge one of these days… any suggestions what to do with it?
I encountered an amazing amount of stupidity for one outing when I went to Petco. Came away with another angelfish.
Random question of the day: can one run in shoes like Skechers Shape Ups? (Well, obviously you can; but how bad of an idea is it?)
