Well Finals began today and here is how they went:
4B: Bodyworks- got a C+ but still have an “A” in the class
3B: Honors English- had to write a 5 paragraph essay on the Kite Runner and answer 100 multiple choice. It was easy peasy!
2B: Chemistry- Yikes! 86 multiple choice all consisting of stoiciometry, gas laws, and crap I do not understand. Yeah let’s just say not one person in my class finished. We were all filling in random bubbles in the last 2 minutes.
Bodyworks is my only grade that has been put in so far, so hopefully I did well on the others. It always seems like no matter how hard you study, finals bring your grade down regardless. lol
4B: Geo/Trig- Whit said her test was pretty easy. She ended up getting a “C” on that one, but it left her overall grade at a “B”. (GOOD JOB WHIT!)
3B: Honors English: Whit scheduled her final early since we are leaving for vacation early on Monday, so she took her final the same period as me. We have the same english teacher, but different periods. Whit thought the test was a lot easier than she anticipated.
2B: Office assistant- so she went home.
Day one of finals= COMPLETE
Well with that said, I present to you this mornings breakfast….
Peanut Butter Dipped Strawberry Oreo Breakfast Cookie
Wow that is a mouthful haha!
Here is what we did
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 mashed banana
- dash of almond milk
- 1/2 diet hot cocoa packet
- 1 tsp. vanilla whey protein powder
First bite… then
DEMOLISHED! Yup it is just that good 😉
Whit and I each packed Bakery On Main Granola Bars today to eat right before the last final.
**Verdict: Trail Mix- I thought that this bar was hard as a rock, I about chipped my tooth. And it was completely tasteless. I absolutely loved everything else that we have reviewed from Bakery on Main, but bars are just not their expertise.
**Verdict: Peanut Butter Chocolate- Whit said that her bar was hard to, but she loved the flavor. If it was not so hard, it would have been better 😦
When Whit went home, while I took my last final of the day, she prepared lunch for us. She came and picked me up and then when I came home this beauty was sitting on the table waiting for me! (Thanks Whit, it was incredible!) The lunch included a tuna melt on half of a leftover whole wheat bun, roasted brussels sprouts, and white cheddar pirate booty.
Today was our first day trying Brussel Sprouts… and boy have I been missing out! Whit did not know how to roast these, so she followed this site and they turned out beautifully.
Recipe for 2 tuna melts–
- 1 can of tuna drained
- 1 garlic and herb laughing cow wedge
- 2 hard boiled eggs
- dash of garlic powder
- cheese of your choice melted on top
Man I love Pirate Booty! It is like a bottomless bag lol.
**Verdict: This has by far been the best flavor. It reminded me of white cheddar popcorn.
Whit and I did our usual Wednesday grocery shopping, but this time only for the things we need for our vacation next week! Some of the things that we are going to is visit Yellowstone, go white water rafting for 9 hours, stay in a condo, and much more I will tell you about soon! I am so excited. We have not been on a REAL vacation to a new state in a LONG time. It is going to be a 9 hour drive, but I do not mind it because I love road trips. I do not know why, but I absolutely love all of the sight seeing as we drive and being with the family.
When we got home an afternoon snack was not needed so we got right into our workout. I was super sore from Jackie’s video yesterday, so today was Insanity PURE CARDIO. Man after not doing this video for a month, I felt so sick afterwards. I was drenched in a pool of sweat, redder than ever, and feeling nauseated. My lunges definitely got a workout today. Eventhough I was not feeling too well, I was proud of myself for pushing throught the whole video.
Dinner tonight was simple. We are kind of on clean out the fridge mode, so a nice summery fruit salad and PB Jay Robb Bar was in the works.
Filled with lots of antioxidants!
That is right we needed a “NO JUNK” protein bar after that killer workout!
Look at that! This bar was definitely the star of this meal
**VERDICT: This is a total go to bar after you work out. I feel like it replaced all of the minerals my body lost, and it was delish! The crispy’s on the inside are the best part 🙂
Well folks, I hope you all have a wonderful night!
QOD: Are you going on vacation this summer? Where?
