Losing my pants

Well, I have a fun story for you all...
This morning it was way too windy to go outside for a run, so I let my roommate know I wasn't leaving at 9, packed up my stuff quickly at 7, snacked on 1/2 a crunchy pb clif bar and headed to the gym early for a nice cardio workout. I ran light hills for 20 minutes and then walked on a 10% incline on the treadmill for another 10. I was 10 minutes into biking when I started thinking about getting ready (why, I'm really not sure, but I'm glad I did...) because it dawned on me... i had forgotten pants!! All I had with me were the stinky, sweaty workout pants I was wearing during my workout- and I was not going to school in those (didn't really match with my cute green tank and italian scarf... haha) so I immediately jumped off the bike and sped all the way home to shower in a flash and change before school. I scarfed down a banana on my way back to the house and ate my breakfast- 1/2 a cup of blueberries, 1/2 a cup of kashi go lean and 1 cup 0% chobani on the way to school.

Luckily, I made it on time, grabbed a coffee and headed to classes. The day got progressively better, I got GREAT news from the Anatomy front- our test is being switched from Monday until Wednesday, which means two more days of studying- AND I can enjoy my favorite holiday weekend guilt-free! Whoo hoo!
I felt like I was walking on air when I headed to the library to eat my lunch and do some work before leaving for the day. I had my fave lunch- classic turkey sammie, carrots and an apple. Boring to you, but always exciting and tasty to me!!

After some work and lunch, my friend Eric and I headed up state to do some thrift store shopping and find him a funny shirt for halloween. We found the UGLIEST shirt for $4.99- perfect! I also found a cool vintage glass I'm giving to someone as part of their christmas present (this was a bit more than $4.99, but worth it!). On the way home from shopping I tried a new flavor of Pure Protein bars- chocolate chip. Not impressed. I will not be buying this one again. I LOVE the PB, the smores is eh, the Hot n'Healthy bars are to die for... and this, yuck. Very protein-y, and not enough chocolatey flavor at all. The only benefit was that it held me over until I made dinner.

Dinner was another disappointment at first- I went to grab some frozen salmon for dinner, and the box was empty! So I improved and made my favorite boy-style meal- sausage sub with peppers & onions, and fries. Well my version was a bit healthier than that sounds- I used Pepperidge farm "white whole wheat" rolls, with sundried tomato chicken sausage, sauteed green peppers and onions, dijon mustard, and a slice of melty reduced fat cheddar. Mmm! For my "fries" I had crispy baked sweet potato fries dipped in a bit of ketchup. A bit burnt, just how I like 'em!

This meal was sooo filling, it felt like a big indulgence but it was really pretty healthy overall! Love it!
No pictures now because I'm at the University Library doing some Anatomy work but I'll post them soon.
I probably won't be consistently posting for the next day or so, but I'll do the best I can! Halloween starts tomorrow night for me! I'm so excited!

Hope the end of your week is as exciting as mine!

Anybody else dressing up for halloween??
