I had such insomnia last night though. It was rough getting up after only 4 hours of sleep. I slept through breakfast again and luckily had stashed a Kashi granola bar in my car for emergencies. Getting through clinical this morning was hard just because I felt so horrible. The presentations were interesting though. Students presented on "Fast Food in America", "Organic Food", and "The Low Residue Diet". I like to buy organic when I can mainly because I don't like the idea of ingesting so many pesticides but the cost is the issue for a lot of people I feel like, at least it is for me.
When I came home I had a cup of coffee with Truvia. We ran out of milk again : ( That always happens when my boyfriend is home on the weekends because he drinks so much of it LOL.
In the middle of my insomnia last night I was thinking about black bean dip so I made some to go with lunch. I just threw in some things I could remember but I don't have the recipe here with me.
- 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
- squeeze of lime juice
- a little water
- garlic (I put in lots because I love it)
I know there are more ingredients but that is the jist of it so it works out fine. It doesnt look that appetizing but it is yummy I swear! I slathered a little of that with a quarter cup reduced fat shredded mexican cheese blend on a whole wheat torilla to make a small quesadilla with a little salsa on the side. I also had a small side salad of spinach and cucumber.
My knee is still bothering me from my run last week, especially when I walk down stairs. I have been wanting to go back out for a run for days but I'm not sure what to do about it. In one of my fitness magazines (I get a bunch of them) I saw some exercises that are supposed to help with knee stabilization so I am going to start doing those. I thought that my thighs were the strongest muscle in my body but apparently they aren't strong enough to support my knees!
In other news, I am
Afternoon snack was a handful of almonds and a large slice of watermelon. Now I have much more studying to do for finals this week. I am counting down, first to this Saturday because I'm going to NYC for the day and second to next Wednesday afternoon because that is when I will officially be done with the spring semester!
