Luckily, this afternoon was full of pick me-ups.
But, back to breakfast. I wasn't starving when I woke up this morning--shockerrr-- so I just had some Multi-grain cheerios and a couple of cups of coffee with Hazelnut cream.
On Wednesdays I have a class from 12-1 and then lab from 1-4 so I eat an early lunch between 11 and 12. Today I fixed a peanut butter and blackberry jelly sandwich with banana slices. I cut up a sweet potato and made "fries" to eat with my sandwich. That took about 20-25 minutes. While I waited, I discovered that we were out of honey mustard. How the heck am I supposed to eat sweet potato fries without honey mustard? Right?! So, I began to experiment. I mixed honey and mustard (genius, I know). I honestly thought it was going to be disgusting, but it actually tasted, and looked, like Chik-fil-A honey mustard sauce. Success in my book! It was like 2 parts honey to 1 part mustard. Try it next time you find you're out of that perfectly delicious condiment!
After lab, I took a quick nap, snacked on the leftover banana from lunch, and then went for the day's run. I was feeling adventurous, so I opted for the 4.2 miles today. I definitely got my sweat on. Fortunately for me, I only got lapped by three runners today. But, it is things like this that keep me motivated anyways :)
After the run, it was Bible Study on Samford Lawn. There could not have been a better way to spend time in the word than outside. It is so humbling to sit and reflect upon all of creation.
For dinner, I had about 20 minutes to scarf something down until I headed off to church. I opted for leftover barley and brussel sprouts. I added some bites of ham and a handful of dried cranberries. This was a delicious and filling dinner. And quick too!
I finished the day with a slice of bread smothered in peanut butter and topped with butterscotch morsels. Perfectly savory, salty, and sweet!
And that is how this day of mine went from slow to glorious!
