Munchie Mania

It seems I've been having the munchies lately. My normal meals/snacks just aren't filling me as well as usual, and I've been feeling empty, wanting something to nibble on!

I just got back from studying at school, so I don't have any good pictures (aside from one lame cell pic) right now, but I'll let you imagine my munches!

Last night I managed to get a lot of work done for my research paper on the Effects of exercise on the prevention of cardiovascular disease for my Kinesiology class- but it took me an hour and a half to find 5 good sources! I ate my muffin and sipped on some ginger tea while searching, but I was STILL hungry, so I grabbed a pear from Mom's fruit bowl to snack on as well.

After deciding to pack it up for the night and head home, Nick called me and I ended up staying up an extra hour watching TV- so although I got a nice rest, it was a short night's sleep.

This morning I woke up for my usual 30 minute full body routine I do on Wednesdays- I can DEFINATELY feel my abs today after the exercises I did yesterday so I took it slightly easy in the ab area this morning!
After I exercised I made my breakfast and chowed down while prepping my lunch- a PB&J Waffle Sammie, complete with 2 blueberry Kashi Go Lean waffles, 1 tbsp each PB & Raspberry preserves and a big banana.

On my way to school I stopped at the DD (Dunkin Donuts) to try one of their seasonal Pumpkin Coffees. I ordered a small with a splash of skim milk, and at first I thought they had given me a bit more than I liked; because it was very sweet...but after looking at the website I found out that "pumpkin coffee" is not really just coffee at all- it's a full drink, sweetened and with milk and a small is 160 calories, 5 grams of fat. Not what I was looking for! Oh, well- a mistake I will not make again, thats for sure. I'll stick to my black coffee with a splash of soy for now on.

For the day's food I packed a Macintosh apple which I snacked on during Anatomy class mid-morning, and for lunch another one of my same-old same-old turkey sammie (all natural turkey, swiss laughing cow light, spinach, pickles, honey flax bread) and the last of my baby carrots.

This filled me for a while, but not for long! My stomach still felt very empty by the time I got to my parents house, so I grabbed a small bowl and filled it with some Peanut Butter Puffins which I'm snacking on as we speak.

Today is just an easy day of studying- I've already gotten a good amount of writing done, now I just have to get started on reading for Anatomy and Kinesiology! I'll be back posting in the next couple of days, as I can!
