A Quick Hello

Once again, I apologize for being so absent.  This rotation is just kicking my behind!  I hope to be back in action a little more once I switch to my final rotation in a little over two weeks.  We’ll see.  Until then I really appreciate you all sticking around.  I ‘m going to try and post shortly about a great night I had out with the Yelp squad and my friend/first year Jessica tasting some great wine.  But for now, let’s do the What I Ate Wednesday thing.

Breakfast was a big jar of chocolate protein oats with cottage cheese mixed in.  I love how the hot oatmeal steams the peanut butter and makes it melty.


That was followed up by lunch eaten in a hurry in front of a packet about ethnicity based carrier screening.  I was learning all about sickle beta thal disease.  I had a bowl full of TVP coconut curry chili made from this recipe.  Honestly it was a great recipe.  I loved how simple it was (bag of this, can of that, one whole onion, etc.) and it tasted delicious.  I used TVP to replace the ground turkey and it worked like a charm.  Protein packed!


I also had an early afternoon snack of celery and carrots with TJ’s chipotle pepper hummus.  This was eaten in the middle of a maternal fetal medicine specialist meeting so no picture of those eats… I wasn’t hungry again until much later in the day.  I was thankful for this because it allowed me to focus and make incredible progress on my to-do list through the afternoon.  I was also the only one in the student room.  People bolted real quick today.  We just finished our midterms…


…so I can see why the ladies were itching for time away from school.  Spring break is coming up soon and we’re all counting down the days. Only two left!  When I finally did get home, dinner happened shortly after.  I had half a baked sweet potato with some marshmallow fluff on top (hello guilty pleasure) alongside steamed broccoli with mustard and a TJ’s veggie masala burger with sour cream.  Needless to say, it was a stellar meal and didn’t last long.


I indulged in dessert a bit later in the form of a loaded caramel rice cake with peanut butter marshmallow fluff and butterscotch/dark chocolate chips.


This was good but honestly wasn’t quite as great as last night’s last ditch effort to eat much needed calories.  I woefully underate all yesterday so when it came to be 7:45 and I realized I had only eaten something like 700 on the day, I made myself chocolate almond milk protein pudding with some marshmallows, butterscotch chips and sauce.  It was divine.  I also stirred in some melted peanut butter.  Awesomeness!


So there you have it.  My quick stop-in to the blog on my way to bed because I’m worn out.  I hope you all sleep well tonight and I’ll see everyone soon for a recap of the super-fun Yelp event from last week.  Also, before I head out, I wanted to mention that upon finishing New Rules of Lifting For Women I have started a new lifting program that I’ll be calling Simply Shredded after the website it’s from.  My first day was yesterday and it was upper body.  Lordie, when I woke up this morning I was just so sore I didn’t want to move.  I guess that means it is working!  Also, in addition to lifting sessions they have a cardio program they call “stubborn fat cardio” that you do on off days.  I tried it out this morning and it had me sweating like whoa!  Going be a good three month program I think.

Questions: What is your favorite lifting program?
Do you have a go to meal when you realize you haven’t eaten much during the day?
