hopefully day of production

A quick recap about last night. Kickboxing was lots of fun! My legs definitely feel it this morning. I love going to work out classes because being around other people makes me push myself harder. When I got back I was pretty hungery though since I hadn't yet eaten dinner. For dinner I made:
1 Bean and Cheese Burrito
-1 whole grain tortilla
-1/2 c. fat-free refried beans
-1/4 c. red-fat cheddar cheese
Then fold into a burrito shape and bake at 350F for about 10-12 min. Then I topped it with some delcious mild salsa.
Dessert was two pieces of cantelope (definitely picked a good juicy one!) and a piece of chocolate topped shortbread made by my dad.
After dinner I got about one page of my paper done and decided to get some sleep.
When I woke up today I made a bowl of oats.
-3/4 c. oats
-a couple shakes of pumpkin pie spice
-1 tbsp crushed pecans
-handful of raisins
~3/4 c. skim milk
Microwave 2 min and yummmmmmm. Then I had a homemade mini pumpkin muffin that I had leftover in the freezer. I was a little extra hungry this morning and decided I needed good fuel to start out my day. I'm hoping to be productive today and get a lot done on my projects and papers that are due next week. The sooner I can get them done the more time I will have to relax after right? So I'm at work now til like 11:30 and then off to the library for the afternoon I go!

Finally tip of the day: Brown bag (or whatever color of bag for that matter) your lunch! This has so many benefits to you!
1) It's cheaper then buying pre-made food on your lunch break
2) You can choose the food that you pack
3) You can pack healthier options
4) It will taste good because you are making what you like
I pack my lunch every day becaue I am a graduate student so I'm trying to be thrifty but also because I'm trying to be healthy. Little changes like this can make a big impact on your life!
