Boy am I glad this day is over. It was stressful at times, fun at times, but overall lonnnnggg as a Wednesday can be.
This morning I stopped to get a small coffee with a splash of nonfat milk (all out of soy) in the morning to get me through my first couple of classes. I had a disappointing Food Management class, when I discovered I got a much lower grade on my exam than I had expected =(. Oh, well- I figure I'll make up for it by wowing my professor with my spectacular menu project coming up!
Anatomy was alright, the exam was so-so... could have gone either way so I'm hoping for the best.
After my exam I sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful fall day while eating my sammie/veggies/fruit for lunch and doing some work. When my friend Eric got out of class, we headed up to Target where I had a successful trip! I found some energy bars... I bought a couple mojo bars, a 6-pack of my fave clif bars for only $5(!!) and another pb clif bar.

I also snagged this new Muscle Milk Light bar which I had as a snack mid-afternoon (sorry for the cell pic in my car!)

WOW was this good! It literally tasted like a candy bar. Held me over well too!

I also got some new exercise pants (I LOVE black champion exercise pants- they come in XS AND petite, and they're ony $20! Can you get better than that?) I also got new earbuds for the 'pod for under $20 and and some cleaning supplies! After I loaded my cart and paid, I headed back towards my house, but not without a couple more stops! I grabbed a couple groceries for my surprise Italian dinner for the boys tomorrow night, and stopped at my favorite little lingerie shop... Kristin walks into a lingerie store and can NOT leave without a cute pair of undies, or a new bra- which is what I got =) I did need it, so it wasn't that much of a splurge!

Back home I did some work while I pressed some extra firm light tofu, and then set out to make my baked dinner-
Baked BBQ tofu (I used 1/2 block) along with brussels sprouts roasted in evoo, s&p and 1 cup of leftover bulgar pilaf. Mmmm mmm this is one of my favorite combos! Hot, delicious and totally satisfying!

So the day has gotten progressively better, at least! Tonight I get to relax a bit- my paper is done and all I have is some more reading to do before I can be lazy and hang around, maybe even get some much needed shut eye by getting to bed early!

Hope your Wednesdays were great!
