I'm a mess.
This weekend was completely and utterly exhausting, and it's not even over.
I feel like I've gotten NO rest and NO studying done, even though thats pretty much all I've been doing aside from working.
Yesterday afternoon I spent studying, and then left for work.
At work I snacked on a mix of dried cherries and almonds, as well as drank this new Fuze I found at the store... I LOVE pomegranate, this was a tasty treat drink!

I had a very small dinner, because I knew I'd be having the rest of it later at my friend's party.
I packed a to-go chili with some carrots and mushrooms to hold me over.

I did end up having a bit of a treat before the end of the night. My shift supervisor, Kristi and I were joking we needed chocolate after one crazy customer, so we ended up each buying small on-sale packs of our favorite peanut butter chocolates... hers being Reese's and mine being Fastbreaks. I had one and it was spectacular, (I really don't eat much candy like this...but I always fall for the fastbreaks) and then I decided, what the heck, it was tiny, I might as well have a second one... come to find out EACH bar is 100 calories. That means I pretty much ate an entire bar!

Not the best idea, because i KNEW upon arriving to my friend's party there would be sushi waiting for me, which there was! I had 5 small rolls- california and shrimp, as the rest of my dinner.
And I snacked on far too many sunchips. The night was ok, but unfortunately I don't consider it worth skipping my studying, which I'm not too happy about.

So last night was not the healthiest night in the world.
Today I really need to start my week off right. Last week there was a lot of junk in my week, and I really need to balance it all out.

I woke up, tried to get out of bed, and realized I can barely walk!! No joke, the weighted lunges and squats I did yesterday KILLED my legs! No run for me today, as much as that disappoints me. I think I'll be sticking to the strength for today and getting my cardio in at the gym tomorrow morning.
I had a nice, healthy breakfast- creamy oats made the usual way; 1/2 cup in 1 cup water, a spoonful of PB, a banana, 1/2 cup 0% chobani and a bunch of cinnamon.

Great way to start the week!
Now I have to get on my SUPER long to do list... all before 3pm today, when I have to work AGAIN! I'm so glad this is all almost over. Once I get through this weekend and beginning of the week it should get a bit better... I hope.
Busy, Busy, Busy! Is it winter break yet?

I hate feeling stressed on the weekends, no fun at all. I hope things get better! That breakfast sounds like a cure-all to me! ;)

I was surprised to find that a healthy-looking food like sushi can contain a ton of carbs and calories. Anyway, it sounds like you're back on track. Best wishes.
